I agree.  He needs to make the team and compete to be the starter.  But the job of the backup is to make sure the starter is ready and if that include mentoring then he should be doing that or not be in the league.  So if he makes the team as the backup then his job bnb is to mentor.

Flacco is the starter

Flacco looked good the other night against San Francisco.   He threw a 45 yard pass to Sanders which was called back due to a holding penalty.   Nice to see what Joe can still do with receivers who know how to catch the ball.  Of course the next play was 3rd and 24 and Joe dumped it off to his TE for a gain of only 11.

To Ben Watson, on the last play of the season...

That was the last straw for me.

So, for those who didn’t want to lose Flacco, would you be willing to trade Denver a 4th rounder to get him back?

Lol. One of the funniest things to me recently has been Mahomes scoring more fantasy points Thursday night than Flacco. He’s been surprisingly bad. Shame cause Denver has a fairly solid team otherwise. Drew Lock is due back from injury soon. Have to think we are seeing the last of Flacco as a starter in the coming weeks.

I watched the KC/Denver game and Denver’s line was putrid. I understand the Joe hate to a point. But to call Denver’s line solid is pretty ridiculous.

To a point?  If another certain QB performed that way you would be all over him.  

I watched the entire game also.  Yes, Denver's O-line was terrible; but Joe was terrible also.  He had three fumbles and took nine sacks!  On one play he stood there waiting for an open receiver, ultimately taking a sack while there was a clear open lane for him to run two yards for a first down.  On another,  he made Lindsay visibly upset by dumping the ball to him right in front of a defender.   Lindsay was blown up on the play for a five yard loss.  Denver generated no offense whatsoever.   Joe was his typical self,  checking down on third and long all game long.  The uproar to bench Flacco  in favor of Allen is loud in Denver.   I am sure when Lock can be activated off IR after week eight he will be the starter.    

I feel bad for Joe.  He remains one of my all time favorite Ravens.  He showed his usual character and professionalism during the post game press conference.  A lot of today's NFL divas would have ducked out after a performance like that.

Another awful day for Joe, and afterwards, shows more emotion than he ever did here by calling out his own coaches. 
 

My schadenfreude reaches new heights.

One thing Joe had here was a good supporting cars when he was winning. Once his agent bled the team for every last penny the talent around him decreased. Denver is really bad ...No offensive line, and a weak talent pool.

Look Joe was never a great QB...but he's not as bad as he's looking behind that horrible line.

    • I'm not particularly vouching for COC's entire list as it would differ from mine. I was just saying that Tate is the most important to keep from his list and Wilkerson is DFA fodder IMO.  Davis is Davis, he's completely useless as a MLB player at this point but he will probably hang around because of the obvious reason.  Wynns, yes Elias wants catching depth, but Wynns is utterly replaceable from a baseball talent standpoint. He's pretty equivalent to the standard waiver wire catcher.
    • Two things that have been talked about needing attention in the minors are distances between venues within a league (i.e. travel burden on players) and pay.  As someone already mentioned, fewer clubs = fewer players, possibly making it more feasible to consider pay increases for those remaining. This makes sense to me, and their current pay situation really does need to be addressed.  As for distances, many of those on the list of 42 are clearly being eliminated because of their distance from other clubs. As someone else already mentioned, remaining venues will probably be reassigned, not only to a different MLB affiliation but also perhaps a different level and thereby a different league. With some doing, a better geographic alignment within leagues might ultimately be possible. Shortening the grueling bus-ride distances may take away a traditional rite of passage, but could really assist in the health of the players that teams are investing so much in.  About Frederick? Perhaps their ability to draw decent attendance means they're good candidates for success as an independent league venue. Otherwise, no idea. Would really like to know the thinking behind eliminating them. My hope is that since the plan was initiated by Luhnow and quickly adopted by Stearns and Elias (see below), its focus really was on improving the development process, not just another plan to cut ownership costs -- naive as that might seem.  More info: https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mlb/rob-manfreds-plan-to-destroy-minor-league-baseball/ar-BBWRVGV   
    • How was Blier injured last season? He found magic, had core surgery, has not shown magic to me since. I say he is expensive for what he is. 
    • Here is the guys on the veterans ballot: I would like to see Tommy John and Lou Whitaker to get in.  To make this Oriole related: Does Dwight Evans go in as an Oriole if he makes it 😀   1 y Lou Whitaker 93 2 y Dwight Evans 70 3 y Tommy John 112 4 y Dale Murphy 116 5 y Ted Simmons 125 6 y Thurman Munson 90 7 y Don Mattingly 134 8 y Dave Parker 125 9 y Steve Garvey 131    
    • In my view: Hess?  Is being converted to the pen.   He has a 3.00 ERA, 225 avg and a 1.08 WHIP in 24 IP at Norfolk.   He could be DFA'd if Elias finds someone better.  Has option. Smith?  I think he could go in the next day or so but at any rate I don't think he makes it through the off season without being DFA'd. Has option Wynns sounds like Elias wants to keep him for now.  If Elias finds someone better as you suggest he could go.  Has option. Mullins probably tries to re-establish himself at AAA.   Depends on how he does has to how long he stays.  Could be a 4th OFer with the ability to back on CF/LF. Has option. O's need good relievers.   Bleier has been good when healthy.   He was injured early last season but did better toward the end of the season.  I think he stays for now.  Doesn't have much trade value right now.  Has option. Kline has a good arm, is cheap and I think he may start the year at AAA unless he does great in ST.   I don't think they give up in his arm yet. Has option Phillips is on the bubble.  Has done what he need to do at AAA but hasn't had success with the O's.   Whether he stay depend on who either Elias brings on.  Has option. Yes, Davis will not be cut.  Elias as expressed support for him in view of his contract. I believe there is a low chance that the O's make a trade prior to setting the roster for the Rule 5 draft.    
    • You have to have played in 10 different seasons and make it past the screening committee.  
    • Google ten-cent beer night… That was quite a game.
