    Dumb trade, Elway needs to accept they're not a Super Bowl contender anymore and rebuild properly instead of these quick 1 year QB fix attempts.

    Flacco hasn't been good for years, that Super Bowl run was a lifetime ago.

    He lost his job to Lamar Jackson who is basically a 50% completion guy, Flacco the past few years is basically Keenum with a better deep ball this isn't even that much of an upgrade and he's had back problems the past few years.

    The Broncos just went from having the worst QB in the division to still having the worst QB in the division with this trade.

    At this point I’m not sure that Flacco is much of an upgrade over Keenum if at all.

    Keenum also has a big cap hit if released...

    I agree with all of that but he's been on the highest stage and did very well, sometimes a change of environment work out better than expected. With his arm in Denver, I bet the Broncos are drafting some burners in April. I called this trade months ago.

    You gotta hope the Broncos didn't offer too nice of a pick to the Ravens.

    While Elway is high, any chance Pats could snag Von Miller? :D

    Given the cap hit I would not be shocked if the Broncos actually got Flacco for free. Maybe even got a draft pick out of it instead of giving up one. Like the Texans/Browns did with Osweiler.

    If Elway actually gave the Ravens something for Flacco on a 20m+ contract then he really has lost his marbles.

    The funny thing about Flacco is that his 2018 stats were basically just his career average numbers. He was just what he always was. It's actually kind of uncanny how completely normal he was in the season he got benched.

    Flacco at altitude? They’ll be able to attempt a Hail Mary from the 25 after a touchback.

    I would rather have Carr than Flacco in 2019, 7 years younger and had a much worse supporting cast and team that was trading away talent for draft picks for a rebuild.

    Baltimore were a playoff team and Flacco lost his job.

    Great move by the Donks. Instant contender. Keenam sucks. Flacco is ELITE!

    My first reaction was to laugh at Elway's idiocy, but as I think more on it, it's not the dumbest move in the world, provided a few things happen:

    1. Flacco is, indeed, himself still.

    2. Elway can assemble a team around Flacco good enough to carry him into the playoffs then let him do his thing there.

    3. The Broncos invest an early pick in a young QB with upside.

    I can't say for sure whether he's an upgrade on Keenum in the regular season.

    They gave away a midround pick and about 40m in cap space in the next two years and still need to find a QB. Getting to be a fringe playoff contender that has no shot at actually being successful in the postseason will just hurt them even more in terms of draft position.
