The Denver Broncos lost another heart-breaking game this week and Joe Flacco was not happy.
Late in the game, the Colts were able to march up the field which lead to a game-winning 51-yard field goal by veteran Adam Vinatieri.
While speaking the media after the game, Flacco ripped the Broncos play-calling late in the game for playing it too safe while having the lead and putting the defense in a bad position. Flacco was frustrated by the decision to run the ball up the middle on third-and-5, which allowed the Colts to stuff the run, call a timeout and get the ball back with enough time to score.
“I just look at it like, we’re now a 2-6 football team and we’re afraid to go for it in a two-minute drill, you know?” “Like, who cares if you give the ball back to the guys with 1:40 left? They obviously got the field goal anyway.
“And once again: We’re a 2-6 football team. And it just feels like we’re kind of afraid to lose a game.”
Who cares if they have a timeout there at the end or not?” Flacco said. “Getting in field-goal range isn’t that tough. You’re just putting your defense in these bad situations and I just felt like, what do we have to lose? Why can’t we be aggressive in some of these situations? That’s kind of how I feel about a lot of the game today.”
Here’s the video of Flacco’s presser.
Seems like Broncos fans agreed with Flacco’s comments while also mocking Flacco.
