Flacco to be released by Denver, with...


Recommended Posts

Elway can’t pick QBs - Osweiler, Paxton Lynch, Case Keenum, Joe Flacco, finally they think they have something with Drew Lock.
 

Peyton fell into his lap, helping him get rid of Tebow; just like Arians landing Brady to get rid of Winston.

And don't forget Phillip Rivers falling into our lap to get rid of the locker room darling, Jacoby. Jacoby's a lovable guy, but being lovable doesn't win football games.

Yes.  That's what a QB with status of Rivers does.  Couldn't sign Case Keenum to move JB out.  Locker room would revolt, LOL.

Fan base would revolt.  

 

I agree though.  It gives management an easy way to move on from a well liked player who just isn't starter material.

It's kind of amazing how many QB's Elway has been able to bring in without getting canned.  

 

Of course to be fair, it doesn't seem like the Broncos ever went all in on any one of them.  Osweiler was a 2nd rounder.  Lynch was a bottom 1st.  Keenum and Flacco where I believe free agents, neither of which where handed huge contracts.

    • Listen to the ball come off Fields’ hand.  And notice the consistent footwork and mechanics.  Just so fundamentally sound.  We’ll just have to see if he has the hunger and drive to be the very best.    
    • I've pretty much given up on Campbell. I think he's just got the injury bug..... For some reason he just seems susceptible to injury.
    • I believe we could have moved up to the 3rd pick with a similar deal if we executed it very early in the offseason.  The 49ers & Colts are very similar in the fact we have good defenses and strong running games.  Fields would have thrived on either team.  Here’s a tweet from QB Collective (which is Shanahan’s QB Camp).  It mentions consistency.  It’s funny that when you look at Fields’ 3 years of college ball (even his freshman year where his coach tried to pigeon hole him as a wildcat QB) his numbers never vary more than 3-5%.  66-70% completions. About 9-10 yards per attempt. About a 4-1 TD to interception ratio.  These numbers while not running a screen or swing pass heavy offense (which he can still do if asked).  Tough downfield throws while standing in the pocket.     Here’s the tweet from when Shanahan and his staff had a chance to work with Fields while in high school.  He took their coaching and implemented it and became the most consistent passing QB in this class.  No major swings in his numbers due to softer schedule one year, or sitting for 3-4 years and inheriting the most talented offense in college football history.  Imagine the next leap he’ll take with Shanahan coaching him every day for the next few years & not just a week or so...  I still wish it was the Colts & Frank and not 49ers & Kyle.  
    • Yeah Samuel doesn't seem to have thee profile of what the Colts want in cornerbacks.   Heck, Ballard even had to be talked into signing Kenny Moore because he lacks the desired size and that was off the waiver wire. Moore has long arms though. 
    • The Colts will need Wentz, to perform like Wentz of 2017, not 2020. The Colts didn’t trade for Wentz to manage games. They inquired about Stafford first, who is definitely not a game manager. Wentz was plan B and are hoping Reich can get Wentz back on track.    The success or lack of success, will fall heavily on Wentz as QB, because the Colts aren’t dominant on either side of the ball.
