I can’t say that Broncos fans are jumping up and down because Joe Flacco is in town and the new boss of the Broncos offense.
When Payton Manning was signed in Denver there was a definite “buzz” around the state because we knew what kind of player he was but more importantly Manning never really handed Denver any devastating losses while he was in Indy. Flacco however does not get that luxury because he beat Denver at home with a miraculous 65 yard bomb and time running out. That year may have been the best team Denver ever had that nobody knows about. A freezing cold game with windchill around -15 made the loss sting so bad it had fans in Denver wondering how it was even possible that we lost that game.....and Flacco was the main reason why! He’s gonna have to win some fans over for sure, and winning games can quickly change a lot of minds. With only two QB on the roster right now, look for Denver to also draft a QB in rounds 4-7 that is a project and possibly going after a decent backup for depth. Flacco had his first press conference in Denver today and he has big plans for Denver’s passing game. Flacco played maybe his best season ever last year in the first six games before he got hurt but, eventually lost his job to a up and coming rookie Lamar Jackson. Hopefully Flacco comes in here and plays like a man not only on the edge of loosing his job as a starting QB in the NFL but also as the solid veteran he has been for many years. He is a former Super Bowl MVP ya know.......
