  • That was quick. Most people believed that he would need at least 2 full years to be NFL ready.

    Not sure how I feel about it. I mean, is he an upgrade? Maybe? Will he stay healthy? Maybe not? lol

    Since 2013, 36 QBs have thrown 1000+ passes. Joe Flacco ranks 34th in rating (ahead of Bortles and Osweiler), 35th in ypa (ahead of Osweiler) and 35th in TD pct (ahead of Osweiler).


    In other words.... He's trash

    I don’t see this trade keeping the Broncos from drafting a QB early. They had an extra 4th from the Demaryius Thomas trade.

    Broncos are grasping for straws , I personally don’t think Denver has the scouting personnel to know who will transition into a great QB from college. Elway is out of touch as a GM

    can you name his WRs and TEs in that span? TEs have been injured over and over, WRs stunk - - - Was he good, not really, was it all his fault, not even close - they even had a year when Balt played their 6th string RB... Remember when Balt traded fro Willie Snead and that was a huge upgrade over what they had? They have given him zero weapons, I think he'll do well tossing it deep to Sutton. His best throw is the deep ball and Sutton is his best going to get contested deep throws

    He'd have been just as good or bad had he been throwing to the beer guy, the peanut vendor, and the cotton candy concession dudes....

    Joe Flacco was the only QB in 5 years to have no WRs? Yet the only QBs hes been better than in all 3 areas is Brock Osweiler? Yes he had bad weapons, doesn't change the fact hes trash.. Hot trash to be exact.

    They were better with Keenum if you ask me. Flacco should retire

    Luke, make your pints, but no need to be nasty towards others for making theirs.... This is a community here, not some random reddit thread where its cool to troll others
  • NO harm done Luke. Im not offended. Im just stating facts. It is relevant if Flacco has proven he can win Playoff games & the Bills haven't won a playoff game since 96'. (I will say I think the Music City Miracle was a forward lateral)

    I think its a good move for the Broncos. Flacco is a reliable qb that has some left in the tank. He has proven he can beat the Pats, Steelers, Colts,Broncos @ home or on the road in -10 temperature in the Playoffs. Elway thinks he can so Im on board for this upcoming season. He is about reloading not rebuilding. $18.5Mil contract. Keenum has $7Mil in dead cap $ if they cut him or maybe he will restructure/trade. Broncos need to have a nice draft & get some free agents to make it work.
  • The Broncos will be drafting their future QB so Flacco is nothing more than a filler for 2019 IMO.

    Huh?

    Troll others?

    He came here comparing flacco wins to the buffalo bills which has 0 relevance to this thread.

    Thanks for your input also

    Ummm.... this seems to imply that Flacco was the only reason why Baltimore has won 10 playoff games, lol. There are quite a few other teams besides the Bills who haven't won a playoff game since 1996. :tongue:

    Again, what do the Bills have to do with flacco the Ravens or the broncos? Nothing. I know what you're trying to do, it's not working.
  • Wow I’m excited I didn’t wind up wasting a 3rd round rookie pick on Lamar. There was a point when I decided I wasn’t going to keep him and now he’s basically my cheap 2nd backup QB. I might still trade him but now that Flacco is out of the way it raises Lamar’s perceived value so at the very least he’s a throw-in.
