    Iím with you and their is no reason to defend supporting your teams starting QB, especially when he leads 4th QRT drives that give us the lead. I know I never asked for the team to trade for Flacco and I wasnít excited when he came here. But i will defend my teams players especially when they are made to be something they are not.
    That said.
    Fair is fair. Flacco last night played his worse game as a Bronco. And one of the worse games Iíve seen.

    Totally agree with this. From the top is where it starts. Broncos need a boss to kick them in the arse here and there.

    If not for some big penalties on the opening drive, they come away with zero points.

    It might not have been the worst throw Flacco made last night, but the one that stuck with me was the check down to Lindsay late in the game that nearly got him killed. The game was already long over, just throw it away.

    Might have to retire to "easily a huge upgrade from Keenum" one too.

    It was obvious he was going to be, at best, a lateral move from Keenum. It was amazing how many people chose to ignore his last 4 years and insist that wasn't the Flacco we were getting.*I watched several years of Flacco games to asseds and try to prove my theories yet people here and elsewhere scoffed at the results I came up with and the direction I knew it would take because "he's just a huge upgrade, he just is".

    Awful decision. I don't blame Lindsay one bit for showing his frustration. Hamilton was open underneath on the left, but instead Flacco throws to a covered RB.

    There was another play when Flacco had protection and missed Hamilton (IIRC) wide open for a 20 yard completion. Instead he threw the ball to the sideline, maybe all the way into the seats.

    We were there with seats close enough to hear Lindsay scream at Flacco. At that point in the game the KC fans were louder than 72-73,000 Broncos fans.

    So I just finished the game, and Flacco was bad. I'm pretty confident in saying that had Lock been healthy, he would have been the QB by the end of the game. Basically, teams are daring Flacco to use his legs, and it's compounding on the already bad OL issues. Flacco was a problem yesterday.

    I watched Lock struggle in preseason when pressured, so I agree he may ha e avoided some of those sacks, Iím not gonna give him credit for anything until he is actually on the roster. So far he hasnít been able to stay healthy, Saying Flacco is no good is fine but jumping way ahead saying a kid who threw 1 TD 1 int in 50 pass attempts vs back ups is a fantasy.
    Letís see the kid get through a week of practice.

    Flacco has lost the team. He has no business starting for us any longer.

    Preseason statistics are worthless. Lock flashed the ability to anticipate targets coming open and get the ball to them before coming out of their break as well as throwing targets open when covered. While he did struggle against pressure, he didnít get worse from game to game dealing with it, he steadily improved, another good trait to look for in a franchise QB.

    Lockís real struggles in the preseason were figuring out the offense and not having chemistry with his targets. Weíre now 6 weeks into the season, he definitely has a much better grasp on the offensive scheme now than then. Chemistry will still be lacking but heís probably picked up a few things to look for while watching these games and going over plays on the sideline.

    Lock wonít come in and start slinging the ball like Mahomes, hell he may not even be a huge improvement over Flacco in the grand scheme. But heís the guy moving forward and will get every chance to show improvement. Denver isnít drafting a QB next season no matter who is available. Elway has given his high round QBs almost the entire rookie contract. Unless Lock comes out and looks like Lynch for the rest of this season and next I wouldnít expect us to draft another QB until his rookie deal is done.

    The worst thing was restructuring his contract. That was the last straw for Elway as far as I was concerned.
