Flacco can run our offense, doesnít have an ego where he needs to throw 40 times a game and will always audible to a pass at the goal line. He is the perfect QB for the kinda team we had in 2015.

    Iím expecting him to throw for 3,500 to 4K yards, 25 to 30 tds, and 12 to 15 ints in our offense.
    Most important thing Flacco brings is his experience, he 8th in wins all-time in wins of active QBs (21st all time) at 96-63.
    Elway put up his best statistical seasons from 95-98 in Shannahanís offense and thatís why he brought him in.
    Can we have Peyton 1.5 who throws for 28 TDís?

    I also canít ignore his 10-5 postseason record
    7 road wins, 25 tds & 10 ints.

    yeah but the papa will just tell you flacco did nothing & was carried by his defense despite those numbers...as a matter of a fact he claims flacco & keenum are equals

    Flacco is more like Peyton 0.5 who throws for 20 TDs. And that's with a quality LT in Ronnie Stanley. Who knows what Flacco will be able to do with Bolles at LT.

    And who knows what Muchak will do with Bolles. Lots of questions to answer yet, but I have high expectations from that coach.

    Iím fine with 20 tds as long as we win games, Manning and Brock combined for 19 total TD passes in 15. We know how that ended 😉
    Letís see what Bolles can do with Munchak

    Stanley PFF grade 75.8
    Bolles PFF grade 70.7

    Our run game will be an upgrade over Baltimoreís ( donít let their ranking fool anybody, Lamar Jackson was their second best run threat) Lindsay & Freeman will be better especially with an upgraded line with Risner, James, a healthy Leary and Munchak.
    Sanders, Sutton, and Fant give Flacco a nice group of receivers as well. If Flacco is as bad as some are saying it wonít be because he had no help.

    I feel Flacco is going to complete several passes that Denver hasn't seen since Elway.

    If you're ever in Vegas for a Broncos game, then hit me up.
    It would be nice to converse with another uneducated person.

    I understand that a lot of Denver fans have hated Flacco since he beat the Broncos in the playoffs, when you thought you had the game all sewed up with less than a minute left. Its ok. But your hate is misplaced. Flacco only did what he was trained to do. Not many quarterbacks in the league could throw a ball that far, at that temperature the ball must have felt like a brick.
    But you have to give up the hate. He is the quarterback of the Broncos.
    Repeat after me, Flacco is elite. He will prove this by taking a below avg. team to the Superbowl.

    Flacco isnt elite.

    But IMO, he is a clear upgrade over what we had.

    Flacco can get the job done.

    If he is upright.

    If....

    Sounds like we should have an uneducated convention for Denverís first game at Oakland in 2020 😉

    stanley was below average like most of baltimore offense. he had Ogden early though. who knows he may look better with better pieces around him. who now only time can tell.

    I have no doubts that this team can win games, but rather in spite of poor QB play instead of a byproduct of it. We could have won 9 games last year with largely the same caliber QB as Flacco. I think our ceiling is around there this year as well.
    I think when you have the best tandem of pass rushers in the league, with a solid Dline, and three of the top cbs in the game
    Led by Fangio

    Hell yea I expect our defense to be great , top 5 I believe I said not historic

    And if Flacco plays like he always has it will be Way better than our 2015 QB play

    Not easy to replicate, but adding the DC who had the leagues best Defense last year and whoís game plan was copied by a legend in Bellichek against the Rams in the SB, is a good start.
    What Flacco always does? Donít forget part of that includes a 10-5 postseason record with 7 road wins.

    Enough of Flacco this or Flacco that....there's plenty of other threads with the same conversation. There are so many things I'm excited to see...Flacco is one of them, but, very curious to see our two young 'ins @ the QB spot....Want to see how our two young RB's play this year...both incurred injuries last year. Will Janovich excel in this system...what about his competition thick neck guy. Of course....will Noah Fant be who we think he's going to be....I think he'll struggle at first and then show growth......but I do think Fumagali will impress early and often. Will we see the growth we all expect from our three young wideouts ? and will the even younger wr show up ? Winfree any one ? I think this is another guy that will jump out in preseason and make the team easily. I'm hoping the Munchak effect is obvious from the get-go. Will Bolles and Risner solidify our left side ? Will Leary stay healthy ? Did we finally find a right tackle.....sure hope so...spent a lot of money there....can our center be what we all hope. Who's our back-ups on the line ? I haven't even brought up the defense...

    Do you think your opinion is more educated than Elway's?

    I would pay $12.99 to see you and Elway go back and forth.
    I'm sure it would be a quick debate. lol
    If only Colorado watched? Absolutely.

    If aired on espn and espn analysts were also allowed to interject methinks this wouldn't be as "quick" and "lol"able
