Yes. Only regular season totals are ranked on this list. But this is list cited for all-time passing yards, etc.

Similar to baseball, where Babe Ruth is credited with 714 career home runs. ... That doesn't include World Series totals.

Painful to watch Joe and the Broncos. An immobile sitting duck like Kehoe behind a bad OL. They are one lousy football team. The first year coach might be canned before the end of the year.

It's not just the OL. It's Joe too. No fire.
He had at least 2 fumbles that I saw. 1 was a scoop & score.
He's sailing throws. Panicking.
It's true that he is constantly under pressure, but he is not handling it well.
Good comparison between the Broncos and Hens though. Both look lost.

When rookie Drew Lock is healthy, Joe will be benched. Then we retire at the end of year. It is time. Sad to watch.

He's done & most people seem to know it:

Yes. Very rough. Aikman was especially vile towards him, as article above notes.

Tough situation. ... However, he did lead that team on late 4th quarter drives to take lead late in first two home games (Chicago and Jacksonville), which were subsequently blown by phantom penalties, poor defense and two last-second field goals (one from 58 yards or so). Team, could (should?) very easily be 4-3 and right in thick of things.

Agree with all 01 .... BUT Joe has looked really bad on way too many occasions the last two years. And last night was simply inexcusable. And this is coming from someone who has loved Joe from when he first set foot on campus at UD and I saw him in one of his first practices. I knew almost right way he was special and was NFL material. He has made us all proud but his time has passed.

This was from an NFL writer who is very much not a fan of Flacco. Seems to have been put in a no-win situation.

Was talking football the other day and a Ravens fan was bashing Flacco. This is a direct quote from him: "He only won the Super Bowl once and that's when he had good receivers."

Tell me about it. ....

Agree with that too 01. The 61 year old, first time, defense first head coach looks to be a stiff. The team stinks. It is way more than Joe but he still needs to do better.

And regarding Ravens fans, fuc$ them. Many bashed Joe from the get go. And the organization then had a defense first mind set and surrounded him with crap. As soon as he leaves they draft a WR in the first round. Lamar won’t win them a Super Bowl anytime soon. They won’t get to play winless teams every week to pump up his stats.

Yeah, but Joe looks like he's not even trying out there.
This is when his low-key temperament gets misunderstood. But he also needs to manufacture some intensity - somehow.
It's not his nature, but he needs to lead and get fired up.

Another late 4th quarter loss for Flacco’s Broncos. Denver has to have the dumbest coach in the game. Third and five and a chance to ice the game Denver chooses to run and the runner is stoned. Colts go down the field for winning FG.

coach is at fault. Didn't let Joe try a 5 yard pass for first down that would have let them run out the clock. Third time this year they lost in the last seconds.

Each of those field goal drives by Denver opponents were aided by a 15-yard personal foul on defense. First two were questionable roughing the passer calls. This one was a blatant horse collar tackle.

Yes, play calling was not aggressive on drive that could have won it. It wasn't aggressive all game. Line can't protect and Flacco can't/won't throw it very far downfield. ... Almost every pass is within 5 yards of line of scrimmage. .... Nearing end of line unfortunately.

This was another 50-yard plus field goal that won it.

Yep. Their coach, and unfortunately Joe now are dead men walking.
