Was that the worst game of Joe Flacco & possible benching after last night’s game?
A day after his team fell to 2-5 thanks to a 30-6 defeat at the hands of the rival Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio stood by Joe Flacco as his starting quarterback, indicating that he does not intend to bench the veteran after an uninspiring performance on Thursday night.
Against a Chiefs defense that has struggled to keep opponents off the scoreboard in recent weeks, Flacco turned in his third game of the 2019 season with a passer rating of less than 80, finishing 21 of 34 for 213 yards and leading Denver to just six total points. And while Fangio told the media Friday he would consider major changes on offense moving forward, he also said that changing quarterbacks would not be one of those changes, as The Athletic's Nicki Jhabvala reported.
Asked to defend Flacco from criticism levied by FOX analyst Troy Aikman regarding the quarterback's apparent lack of energy on Thursday, Fangio continued to stand by the former Baltimore Ravens starter, suggesting the Broncos have long been aware "that is Joe."

Vic Fangio is a horrible head coach, a poor judge of talent and a stubborn person. He was hired to turn the Broncos around but the Broncos have actually gotten worse since he was hired. If he is not fired soon by John Elway then it is possible, even likely, that Elway himself will be fired.

That was not his worst game, It was actually about average for overrated Joe. Every since he won that Superbowl, what you saw, is basically what you get.

It was a poor showing but they shouldn't want to play Drew Lock behind that offensive line and would have to bring him back from IR to do so.

A line that gives up nine sacks is not the fault of the QB.

That was definitely subpar but worst I don't think so. The match result is surprising for that team there.
