    I'm talking only about STARTING NFL QBs. If you include backups, then yes, Brian Hoyer is about the Mendoza Line, and Flacco's well above the Mendoza line.

    But, among established starters he's about statistically the NFL worst for the last 5 years.

    And since he's passing himself off as a "former SB MVP" starting QB you don't get to compare him with Brian Hoyer or Josh McCown, Josh Johnson (Eagles), or Matt Schaub (holy crap! Matt Schaub is still in the league? Yes. Somehow Matt Shaub is still around.) Apparently Drew Stanton is too. Who knew?

    You can only compare Flacco with actual starting QBs. And then, yes, he is that bad.

    Normally a Mendoza Line QB doesn't start for you. But, Elway being Elway, in Denver he does.

    Is Flacco really better than a backup QB?

    Is he better than Teddy Bridgewater in NO, who has 9 TDs 2 INTs and a 99 passer rating?

    How about Ryan Tannehill with a 104 passer rating, 9 TDs 2 INTs, and a 71% completion percentage? No and no.

    Those are NFL starters too and if they were in Denver people would still be screaming for Brandon Rypien.

    Neither one of those QB’s has the rah rah bullshit enthusiasm.

    There are very few seasons that I would have selected Flacco over Hoyer. Hoyer has some bad luck with timing for his injuries, but has played pretty damn well at times, often outplaying the guys he replaced. Their career passer ratings are separated by less than 2 points...and Flacco had a consistent coach, system and RB/TE friendly dump off talent.

    Allen is a nice backup QB.
    I'm smooth with it because I know what to do with it.

    His arm isn't a mockery of modern QBing. Not great, but it's not a rag.

    This is how bad our Qb position has become, Wave. This is Jaded adopting. He's a broken man.

    *The statements above are my opinions, unless they are links, because then they are links, which wouldn't make them my opinions, and I suppose stats aren't necessarily opinion, but they are certainly presented to support an opinion. Proceed accordingly.
