NFL media destruction of Broncos trade for Joe Flacco was swift and delicious

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Denver Broncos Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

It must be the NFL offseason because the sports world is pointing and laughing at a John Elway mind blowing QB decision. The moment Adam Schefter made the first report that the Broncos had traded for Joe Flacco, NFL twitter went to work posting some stats and details that everyone outside of Denver will find extremely entertaining.

It was soon reported the trade is for a 2019 4th round pick.

The thing is, there is no need to embellish or cherry-pick when criticizing Flacco and the Broncos for this deal. It’s all just factual data and any way you look at it, it’s downright hilarious. Only Elway.

And finally, Adam Schefter back with an ominous distinction for Flacco.

I’m not making any predictions here, but based on how things have gone down with Elway’s QB decisions the past few years, it seems pretty likely we’ll be doing this again this time next season too.
