    Classic. Laughing at you guys claiming that you can truly analyze college QB "tapes". Guys that make millions doing this as their job, and watch more than the occasional highlights and youtube clips you guys are watching, don't have a clue. Let's not pretend you know any better.
    Action can just ask him.

    If you are impressed by this type of crap that is how players like Leaf get picked ahead of Manning.

      Huh? It's a terrible contract for a QB who could only start on Denver, Miami, or Washington. Maybe not even the latter two.

        I am beginning to think Flacco will surprise a lot of people this year. If the offensive line comes together, it will fun to watch.

          Name a better guy you think could be brought in for cheaper on a 1-year deal?

            No one who predicts a QB won't work out as a pro deserves any kind of credit; So many of them bust that you can say every single one will bust or underperform and be right 90 percent of the time.

              So you’re saying it’s like going to Vegas knowing the odds are against you and when you go tits up you claim you’re a winner because you predicted it!

                You also have to remember the talent level around Lock and the talent level he was playing against. I think Flacco will have a good year for us with the weapons he has around him. Sanders, Sutton, Hamilton , Fant, Lyndsay, Freeman and the improved O Line. But I also think about the 18 mill Flacco is making and where else we could have spent that. Could have brought back Paradis and Veldheer and had more depth on the O Line, Brought in Zach Brown to compete at ILB, Tre Boston is still out there as well.

                  Let’s be real. There is a reason 32 teams passed on him. All 32 teams saw something they didn’t like.

                  He has the raw talent and is a hard worker. Will he develop is the question.

                    That’s not really a barometer. 32 teams passed on Russell Wilson.

                    Nobody including our own team drafted Harris. He must be horrible then.

                      How many of those 32 needed to invest a 1st round pick on a QB. Maybe 4. Cardinals didn't need to but did. Giants made a monumental mistake. Elway and company believe in Flacco. Redskins where dead set on Haskins and probably sent the Giants a gift basket. I think Miami knew they were getting Rosen from the Cardinals and nobody else needed to invest a 1st Rd pick on a QB.

                        32 teams passed on drew brees. 32 teams passed on Tom Brady 5 rounds in a row. Combine doesn’t have a test for heart, and that’s what it takes combined with talent to make it at qb in the nfl.

                        sign me up on the side that is excited to see Flacco play. I watched his games before he got hurt last year, his arm is still great and he had his best year as a pro in this system.

                          Not quite. Casinos win because on average they win more than they lose. Individuals do win, though. The model wouldn't work if some didn't win.

                          It's more like saying you guarantee the Rockies will have bad pitching. Most seasons you'll be correct. No one thinks you're smart for guessing so, and you shouldn't feel like you've proved anything.

                            and Montana, Favre, Moon, Romo, Warner, Cunningham, Couisins, Carr, Foles, Dak....

                              Brees was considered a solid starter before going to New Orleans, not a franchise QB. And even with all of Brady's heart and work ethic, he still needed Drew Bledsoe to take a weird hit from Brian Cox to see game action. Luck and timing are as big of a factor as physical skills and where you are drafted.

Any Broncos fan with a functioning memory should be nervous as our last boom or bust QB prospect definitely went pear shape on us.

                                I'm not trying to compare Drew Lock to Paxton Lynch. They are different QBs with different playing styles and each have their own suite of issues and shortcomings that potentially limit them in the NFL. But, I am definitely happy that we have only invested a 2nd round pick in acquiring Lock. That does help mitigate some of the risk associated with his development.
