Jimmy and Dee have him on the phone right now...

For those who think he is likely to be a better option that DTR later this season, this would be a great thread in which to make the case as to how good we reasonably can expect Flacco to be at this point in his career.

Flacco is the admission that PJ Walker isn't good enough to be a backup for a playoff team. Walker was a turnover machine, but he wasn't afraid to drive the ball vertically. In that aspect, Flacco is an upgrade as the vertical passing backup, while still turnover prone.

What you hope is the opposite of what @Benway mentioned. Flacco knows what's up - he was retired until this chain of events pulled him off the golf course. He hasn't played in the playoffs in almost a decade, but he's started 15 playoff games. This is a chance to pass on what he's learned about the pressure of quarterbacking and leading a postseason worthy team.
 
Flacco has led a team that didn't rely on him to win games before. I am more than comfortable with him playing the "Don't fuck it up" role in this offense. He also presents a threat down the field that DTR is either not comfortable with or not allowed to attempt. If the Browns play a team that can still put up points against our D, then I don't know how comfortable I am with the prospects of DTR revving up the engine on offense.

Give Flacco a week or two to learn, then hand him the keys. DTR can still beat the Broncos, regardless of how many games they've won in a row. I think the Browns match up well against them on D.
 
Hand him the keys? Are you saying this regardless of how DTR is progressing? This seems extremely over exuberant and ignoring the reason that despite a record number of rookies and QBs in general starting at least one game league wide this real he was still golfing a week ago. In fact if he's lost arm strength from last year I'd argue that is experience in game may be a detriment in that he'll make the correct read and make the pass from muscle memory that he no longer has the ability to drive home.
 
He’s going to work with DTR on one specific thing in the film room.

“Hey DTR, see this look. You get this look, you drop back and you throw it 60 yards down field, ok? You get any other look, check it down.”
 
Leave it to PIP to go with the misleading thread title. For the Browns sake I hope this man doesn't see a single minute of game action, because that means DTR is playing well.

In the event the lights get too bright for DTR or that opponents just stack the box and dare him to beat you (likely), Flacco is a great safety blanket. He isn’t gonna put up 30+ points on the regular but he should do better than 13. I would still roll with DTR this week but if he sucks, it’s time to go to Brian Shaw.
 
Testaverde vibes ?
