    There was that one play where Joe threw a bad pass to a wide open receiver that hindered the receiver’s ability to turn up field after the catch. He got tackled for a loss.

    However, Flacco wasn’t as bad as you want people to believe.

At some point you have to have a bit of objectivity - Flacco can’t account for every aspect of the players around him. The offense actually came back in the second half. Scangarello made a few questionable calls which was expected.
    You are correct but I’m not gonna praise his play either. It really doesn’t matter. We lost flat out. Flacco will play his was out by the time Lock comes off “bogus” IR that was to help Flacco feel better about himself. I’m ready to see what Lock can do and will gladly wait until week 9 as we will be out of playoff race by then. If Flacco keeps holding on to the ball too long, he’ll be injured by week 4.

    Looking at the numbers:
    Passing
    Carr 22/26 259
    Flacco 21/31 268

    Recieving
    Williams 105 yards
    Sutton 120 yards

    Rushing
    Broncos 100 yards
    Raiders 98 yards

    Kick returns killed us 101 to 0 as did sacks 3-0.Their tightened got 70 yards receiving ours only 29. Basically nothing changed our offensive line still hasn't gelled or still suck and we still cant cover tight ends. This is why the cut of Sua Cravens confused me.

    If you’re going to judge Fangio on one game then your argument for VJ is a canard.

    Give Fangio the same shot and we’ll see how he does.
    You guys didn’t want to give VJ five games, so I don’t want to give Fangio 2 years.

    Ya’ll kept saying, without proof, that Fangio is a better head coach. It ain’t looking that way right now.

    We’ll see how things go, but there’s zero reason at the moment to think anything has gotten better.

    Joe Flacco was one of the only bright spots this game. Not sure what a lot of you are watching.

    Way to grab the attention and put it squarely on the QB :clap:

    Clearly it was Flacco subbing jerseys with Yiadom on defense... Calling gimick plays, etc...

    Joe was as average as could be but was a far cry from what ails this team tonight.

    I see, so Joe "tanked" Hamilton.

    Sad thing is with all the jokes about the Dolphins we may be WORSE than the Dolphins. This loss was unacceptable getting beat down like this.
    IMO this team is bottom 5, but Miami is the worst by a large margin. They were raked over the coals at home by a run-first QB who they allowed to throw for a perfect passer rating. But I definitely feel disappointed, I was hoping for 9-7 to end the losing season streak, but that's looking like a pipe dream right now.

    We're not one game in when it comes to Elway. Come on now. We're 11-22 over the past 33 games. That's all under Elway.
    So let's light a match after the season opener. Ok.

    I was on board this off-season to trade Von while he still had value. We need to go into rebuild mode. Starting will building an Oline for our future QB. That needs to be our main priority after gutting everyone. Wolfe is trash, Leary is trash, and Bolles are must goes
