That is just plain stupid.

    How do people think Elway felt when Reeves drafted Tommy Maddox to be his replacement???

    We all know how that worked out but I seriously doubt Elway wanted to or would have actually 'mentored' Maddox.

    It's not Joe's job. If he didn't have that attitude, I'd be concerned. It's Drew's job to EARN the spot. If he wants it, he has to beat Joe out... (which shouldn't be too terribly difficult). With all that being said- Joe isn't going to be a jerk. He'll answer questions, he'll help when asked. He just won't go out of his way for it.

    It's in the best interest of average to below average players to have that (team player/mentor) mindset to stay employed...and they know that so...

    Yeah this too.

    Flacco's 'learning' a lot of new things as well.

    I take no issue with his comments.

    Itís Flaccoís job to study the opposition and beat them on a weekly basis. He donít have time to worry about Lock or Rypien, that is the coaching staffís job.

    Flacco is right, it is not his job to train Lock. Flacco's job is to be the best QB he can be. He was brung in as a QB, not as a mentor. Lock will learn from observing flacco, and listening to Scarangello. Most QBs don't want to train their backup. Even Manning said he was not going to mentor Osweiler. That is what the coaches are for.

    Not only do I not have a problem with what Flacco said, I like that he said it. He's a competitor. His mindset should be to keep Lock on the sidelines holding a clipboard for as long as possible. If his performance on the field winds up matching his will that can only be a good thing for Denver.

    Because heís aging and injuries are catching up to him. Even if heís healthy all season is there any reason to start Flacco if we get eliminated from playoff contention? I donít think itís a stretch at all to say Lock will start at some point whether it be because of injury or poor play and at that point Flacco better be helping to mentor him. But as long as Flacco is starting, yes he should be focused on putting the best version of himself on the field.

    Taken in their full context, it's not bothersome in the least.

    You used the word "if". "Ifs" mean Lock COULD start. What I specifically addressed was the assumption that Lock will start. Your if scenario doesn't supported the assumption that Lock will start.

    Usually when the incumbent is of a talent level like Flacco's, they get replaced rather quickly. Lock doesn't have to be good for that to happen, Flacco just has to be Flacco.

    Flacco is, at best, on the same level talent wise as McCown. Definitely a tier or two below Smith. Are you saying he should be embracing his teaching role more gracefully?

    I like what he said, I would prefer Flacco concentrate on winning games. I wanted Lock and I'm glad we have him, it is on him and the coaches for his progression. Right now its time to win games. Go Flacco!

    'OK, you guys want to draft this guy? Well screw you, I’m going to prove that I’m the best guy. I’m going to make this decision look like a bad decision because of how I’m going to play.”

    One of Flacco's best friends said the above about Flacco when Ravens drafted Jackson. Flacco went on to not even send a congradulations text and then was motivated enough to go 4-5 with 12 TDs and 6 picks playing with a top 5 defense ... if that is a motivated Flacco then Lock will be starting by week 10.

    I can understand Flacco's frustration but at some point just saying something like " I look forward to working with Lock but my main focus is on winning" would have been saying the same thing but better phrasing. I can guarantee this will get brougt up by salty denver fans if Flacco struggle (even some of those who are glossing over it now)
