    Or worse? We'd still be playing if Flacco was replaced with Bortles.

    I hear you Goode, but he hasnít looked anywhere near the same QB for long stretches of time.

    Now part of this is he doesnít have the playmakers, we get it.

    Part of it may be injuries.

    Part of it may also just be plain old regression. Joe has looked flat out plain AWFUL in terms of accuracy for long stretches of games, missing WIDE OPEN receivers. He got better as the season progressed so letís see if it carries into next year.

    The bottom line is heís inconsistent. Even his biggest fans admit thereís a ďJanuary JoeĒ phenomenon where he elevates his game, but thatís fucking useless if you canít make it to January.

    That being said, Iíd rather stick with Joe (dance with the girl you know). Iím all for drafting a young gun backup, but Joe put us in a position to win more often than not, and thatís enough... for now.

    I would have given our 1st for Jimmy G. Dont think Belichick would have let that happen though....

    Basically what this says to me is our passing game needs an overhaul. OC, WR, and QB all need to be replaced.

    Lol! Címon man. Do you seriously believe that? With this scheme, and group of pass catchers? If not for the Jags defense Bortles would not have even sniffed the playoffs this year.

    Bortles isn't very good and he still played better than Flacco did this year. I'm not saying we would have made the playoffs with him but I don't think you can say we would have been worse off either.

    And I didn’t say that. Yes, Joe had a bad year, for various reasons. Scheme, injuries to key players, shitty receivers, and a bad back which none of the “get rid of Flacco” crowd gives much credence to. He missed most of training camp and only took a few snaps in preseason, but none of that matters either to some.

    Joe is NOT the reason we are not in the playoffs folks. As bad a year as he had, he turned it up in the 2nd half of the season and put us in a position to go to the playoffs. Dr. Dean ended for us again this year, not Joe.

    I think Joe is part of the reason. He missed two probable touchdowns to Wallace in the first half of that Bengals game. Of course, we also had a ton of drops. That's why I say part of the reason and not THE reason.

    The Bengals are guilty of the exact same things we routinely criticize the Ravens organization for, but to an even worse extent...and the Browns are still owned by Jimmy Haslam no matter who their QB is, so...trolling it is.

    Yeah, I feel bad for Bengals fans. Mike Brown will never win a Super Bowl. And the Browns...

    Considering the defense was the only reason we didn’t finish with 5 wins or less, I take issue with that last paragraph. Joe and the offense are almost squarely the reason we didn’t make the playoffs. The defense was ultimately unable to overcome a poor offense, which is a team failure and indictment on how the team is built.

    Yes it was a TEAM failure, but again Joe played well enough in the 2nd half of the season to put us in position for a playoff berth. In spite of the 2nd rate receivers we had. The defense was supposed to be great this year, and they showed moments of that, but once again, when the season was on the line, they let us down. On that final drive for Cincy I would have felt better if we were losing at that point, but we had the ball. I have felt that way since 2014, and for good reason.
