    respectfully, I do not think benching flacco or starting LOCK, or any other QB was VIC's decision to make.
    Definatly not exclusively and and perhaps not at all.

      Terrible handling of the QB situation. Relatedly, bad PR skills when it comes to player relationships. And as I see it so far, I think his defensive scheme is solid in most cases, but he seems incapable of thinking outside it when the scenario (like snow in KC) breaks his scheme.

      C+
      Of course I’m blaming Elway for a lot of stuff. He’s the guy who built the talent-poor roster. He’s the guy who traded for Flacco. Anyway, I’m only talking about the people giving him an F or a D. That’s just silly.

          I gave him a D. I feel that we were a team better than our records indicated throughout the season .
          We’ve lost 3-4 winnable close games, at least two of those game losses were poor game management. That was the difference between having a losing season or being in the playoffs given that the raiders almost made it.
          Theres nothing hidden there. It’s all there in plain view...
          We've got to instill a winning culture that existed back in the Reeves-Shannahan eras where nobody would come to Denver and walk away a winner. We were one of the best home field advantages in all football.
          A bad season was an 8-8 season with a 7-1 home record.
          We haven’t had, to the best of my recollection, that kind of home field dominance since Shanahan left...

            This exactly. I gave him a B but some bone head moves made it less than a solid B. Luckily, he overruled our OC to get the PI at the end of a game.

                Grading based solely off of wins and losses without consideration for circumstance is how owners end up firing good coaches and continuing the cycle of suck.

                  It seems very few are throwing out a D or F, which should point out to those that are doing so, how skewed their logic is.

                    if you don't agree with me, then you probably enjoy the smell of your own farts.

                      If 7-9 with this roster is an F, what would you give Zac Taylor with the Bengals? If your grading system makes no sense, your grades are meaningless.

                        I don't care how you graded him. Get over it that we don't agree. WTF is wrong with you?

                          So basically you don't really have a rationale to support your grade, and don't want to discuss things on a discussion board. Okay then.

                            I just put it out there. I HAD NO idea someone would get their panties in wad over it. Is it necessary to validate all my takes? It's poll for ****'s sakes

                              And you’re a kind of special idiot, aren’t you?!
                              Why don’t you quote my whole reasoning of why my grading?!
                              I’m not hating on the guy for you to insult me because you can’t conceive that not only he gets a failing grade, but most importantly it doesn’t align with your own opinion.

                              Before we get too blindly in love with Fangio and fog our senses, let’s just say I have concerns.
                              I’ll leave it at that...
