Will Joe Flacco flourish as the new quarterback of the Denver Broncos? Jake Plummer has some advice for him."It wouldn’t be an offseason for the Denver Broncos without quarterback controversy. In the last week Derek Wolfe Jersey , the Broncos have dealt former captain and first year starting quarterback Case Keenum to the Washington Redskins. The year before, the Broncos dealt former captain and starting quarterback Trevor Siemian to the Minnesota Vikings. This year the quarterback of the Broncos is Super Bowl MVP (XLVII), Joe Flacco. John Elway was moved to trade for the veteran quarterback after the Baltimore Ravens committed their future to developing Lamar Jackson.With a presumed chip on his shoulder, John Elway believes Flacco’s best football is still ahead of him. Flacco’s offensive arsenal is filled with multiple young, and talented players. Paired with the discipline of head coach Vic Fangio, and a revamped defense, the expectations for Flacco are astronomically high.As first reported by ESPN’s Jeff Legwold, former Bronco quarterback Jake Plummer presented the harsh reality of being the Broncos starting quarterback. Retired Bronco QB Jake Plummer watching practice at Dove Valley (2016).John Leyba, The Denver PostThe fact of the matter is that Joe Flacco is a veteran quarterback that was sought after by multiple teams this offseason. Rather than being a below average NFL quarterback, Flacco has the ability to be aggressive, cerebral, and consistent. While Baltimore is further removed from a Super Bowl Championship than Denver, the expectations are far different from both the organization and fan base.When introduced to the Denver Media at his introductory press conference Flacco said Cheap Dalton Risner Jersey , “My first priority ... I’m going to show everybody in this organization, and more importantly the players on my team, that I can play, that I can play quarterback. That I can lead this team with the talents and skills that I have.” So because the Broncos are in win now mode, Flacco’s talent and skills will ultimately be judged by winning football games and competing for a fourth Lombardi Trophy. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Quarterbacks are lighting it up at a record-setting pace this season with 228 touchdown throws in the first month of the season.Case Keenum hasn’t joined the party.The Denver Broncos‘ new quarterback has just three touchdown passes — none since the opener against Seattle — and his six interceptions are just one shy of the total he had last season in Minnesota.Keenum is the first Broncos QB since John Elway in 1986 to go three consecutive games with 20 throws and zero touchdowns.“Is it a concern? Not really,” coach Vance Joseph said Wednesday. “Our concern is winning football games. … But Case is going to get better and better with time. We’re figuring out who we are as an offense. It’s a month into the season, I’ve been proud of how Case is playing.”If Keenum throws a touchdown pass Sunday when the Broncos (2-2) visit the Jets (1-3), it’ll be his first in 28 days.“I don’t care how we get into the end zone,” Keenum said. “Obviously, I like throwing touchdowns. I like when those guys are running them in, too. We’ve got two great backs” in rookies Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay.“They’re doing a great job. But we’ve got a bunch of targets. Receivers, tight ends Von Miller Jersey , they want to get into the end zone, too,” Keenum said. “So, whatever it takes. I know the whole team is that way and whatever it takes to score more points than the other team, whether it’s run or pass” is the goal. “But yeah, we’d love to get more passes going.”Keenum would have had a fourth TD pass to go with his third fourth-quarter comeback for the Broncos had he connected with a wide-open Demaryius Thomas streaking down the sideline Monday night in the final seconds of Denver’s 27-23 loss to the Chiefs in which they squandered a 10-point fourth-quarter lead.On third down from the Kansas City 28 with 22 seconds left, Keenum saw the cornerback jam Thomas, then release him to the safeties, both of whom were deep in the end zone.No linebacker to layer to throw over.No safeties to freeze with his eyes.No over-the-shoulder pinpoint pass needed.Just a basic delivery to his big receiver.Keenum stepped up and … rifled it over Thomas’ head .Keenum loved the play call by offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave, who’s taken some heat for using three-receiver sets without a fullback or tight end on a three-and-out series sandwiched between Patrick Mahomes ‘ two TD drives that rallied the unbeaten Chiefs.“It was a great play call by Bill, trying to take a shot at the end zone and they played two high safeties,” Keenum said. “I threw it where I wanted to, just a little high. It was just a little bit off. And that’s the game. It’s a game of inches. Would I have liked to have that one back? Heck yeah. But I know we’re going to make a lot more of those than we don’t.“So Joe Flacco Jersey , I gave it my best shot and I can’t lose anymore sleep over it,” Keenum said. “We’ve got a lot more games to play. We’ve got a tough test this week. So, I’ve squashed it. I’ve learned from it. I’ve moved on.”Being in all four games with a chance to pull out the win gives Keenum hope he can find his rhythm like he did in leading the Vikings to the NFC championship game last season.“We haven’t played our best football yet and we’ve had a chance to win every game,” Keenum said. “… I’m excited where we’re at. I’m even more excited where we’re headed.”MARSHALL’s MOVEMENTThe Broncos and Brandon Marshall announced a $50,000 commitment to help launch the linebacker’s FEEL (Feed and Educate to Empower Leaders) Movement in Denver.The initiative was announced 48 hours after Marshall and Thomas both stood with their teammates during “The Star-Spangled Banner” Monday night after staying inside during the national anthem for the first three games.Marshall, who followed the lead of his college teammate Colin Kaepernick in taking a knee during the national anthem in the past, said he and Thomas felt that they had made their point by continuing to draw attention to social injustice.“The protest is just a symbol. The knee is just a symbol. It’s not everything. The action, what we do in the community, that’s everything,” Marshall said. “I definitely think the knee was important to get everybody’s attention, but more-so it’s about what everyone’s doing in the community.”
