    Joe Flacco has won 106 regular season games and lost 72. Joe Flacco has won 10 playoff games (including a Superbowl) and lost 5. He's a Superbowl MVP. He's does all this playing for an idiot coach (Harbaugh) - with virtually no significant receiver talent. Virtually all Joe's games have been played out doors in the northeast. In his 11 years in Baltimore he's had to play 22 of those games against Pittsburgh, 22 of those games against Cinci and 22 of those games against Cleveland - all of those games against first class NFL defenses were played outdoors. He's beaten New England in New England outdoors twice (in the winter) - and it would have been three times had Lee Evans not dropped a last minute touchdown pass in the endzone in 2011. And it would have been four times if the Ravens defense haden't given up two 14 point leads that Joe produced in the game against the Pats in 2014 when Kubiak was the offensive coordinator,

    Case Keenum played in a dome when playing for the Vikings.

    All that and he's still a below average QB, how about that.

    In normal circumstances, I would ask for a definition/delineation of terms, but in this instance and your case it would most likely be an exercise in futility given your voluminous rants on the topic in the past.

    In view of the fact that, barring unforeseen circumstances, Joe Flacco will be Denver's QB this year, I'm inclined to forget about the past and look forward to what will happen on the field of play during the 2019 season.

    That is all.

    Suggest re-thinking the statement in bold. During Flaccoís first 10 seasons Pittsburgh and Cincinnati were consistently some of the average or close to worst ranked defenses. Only in 2008, 2009, 2016 and 2018 did some of those teams have top defenses, as far as I recall.

    Is the 2019 version of Flacco close enough to what he once was, to give us a realistic chance of reaching the playoffs. I guess we shall find out.

    I have to agree with Gtown 53 & Melemele, give the man a chance before we condemn him. I heard people say Manning was a washed up old injured has been before he led us to two Super Bowls. Come on Joe! Go BRONCOS!

    Weíll find out soon. If Flacco has a season similar to 2014, I think itís a realistic possibility to reach the playoffs.

    He doesnít require that level of talent. Heís never had that level of talent to begin with. Itíd have just been nice if we got to see him throw to a better trio than Jeremy Maclin, Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman. That was just two years ago.

    Put it this way. Heís obviously not Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees, but he is without question better than Case Keenum. Try taking Case Keenum into Foxborough with an aging Steve Smith Sr. as his only noteworthy WR and see how well he does.

    My interpretation of many comments from Flacco supporters is that heís struggled in recent years because he didnít have a strong supporting cast. The blame points to poor coaching and lack of talent. What we seem to never hear is what role Flacco played when the Ravens played poorly. Flacco was 24-27 over the last four seasons - did he own any role in the losses? Or was it always the fault of Harbaugh, the OC, the line and the receivers?

    After reading dozens of posts from the Flacco fan base, it seems fairly simple: When the Ravens won it was because ďJoe CoolĒ carried the team. When the Ravens lost it was always someone elseís fault and/or lack of talent.

    Heís with the Broncos and the offense is starting from scratch for the most part. We donít know if Flacco has more talent to work with than his last few seasons (as a fan I would like to believe the answer is yes). His performance in camp hasnít been great but it hasnít been bad. It seemed to start clicking somewhat leading up to the HoF game. It was good to have a head start with the extra time - the offense needs it.

    Flacco himself always took responsibility for losses and poor performances. He never threw anybody under the bus.

    Flacco supporters feel that way, because his supporting cast has been that bad. Itís not as if he had Atlantaís WRs and went out throwing three picks. From 2015-2018 the Ravens pass catchers were arguably bottom five every year and none of them have left to do anything of note on another team. We havenít even been able to see him with league average surrounding talent.

    Sutton, Sanders (Achilles recovery and all) and Hamilton is the best trio of WRs that Flacco has had since 2012, and two of them havenít even started their second season. Thatís how bad itís been in Baltimore. Why do you think they've spent so many picks in the first three rounds on WRs and TEs since last year, to put with Lamar Jackson.

    That has yet to be determined because they havenít played a regular season game with Flacco.
