    Default Drew Lock

    Before I say what I’m going to say, know that I want Drew to succeed as our QBOTF. We’ve been waiting quite a while for someone to possibly fill Manning’s shoes.

    Having said that, can we pump the brakes a little on the hype surrounding Drew? While the 5 games last season gave us a glimpse of what Drew can do as a starting QB, be mindful that with a new offense and OC, Drew will endure the growing pains as if this is his rookie year. It is great to see him putting in the work to get better, which always helps.

    Awesome to see Elway & Company do their level best to surround him with the personnel needed to help him flourish. I just caution folks to not get too hyped just yet.

    Where we’re going, we don’t need brakes.

    Yeah, I think it’s better for Broncos fans if they get back to the mindset of he’s still just a 5-game starter with a lot to prove and progress.

    This time next year we could be looking at 1st round QB’s again.

    I’m also gonna remind people that, unless that QB is God’s QB with ordained future, few fan bases turn on a QB as quick as Broncos fans ... we had people calling for Kubiak when JFE was still a rookie. We’re a 2 Int game from “let’s see what Brent Rypien can do”.

    Jaded is higher than giraffe puzzy as usual I see...

    Look. Lots of us are stoked about the kid because 1. He has actual talent, 2. He isn't an idiot, 3. He showed the capacity to learn, quickly at that. #3 is the best part. Our new OC took Case ******* Keenum to an NFC champ game. Seriously, that happened. I think we are in fine shape.

    Take your foot off the floor? Sure, that's common sense.

    Pump the brakes? No way, least not yet, she's being designed to hug the road.....

    Pretty sure I read that during his 4 college years, he had at least 3 different coaching staffs.

    NBD to Drew.

    Basically.

    I think we will always have hesitation in terms of QB's until one actually becomes the franchise QB of this team. But, i really dont see any problem with being excited as Drew even in just 5 games showed he is very competent and that was with the Broncos struggling in many areas last year as a team. Most likely it wont be til year 3 that Drew truly breaks out but im excited to see what he does going forward and feel more confident right now in the team than i did behind Siemian, Keenum, etc. Sucks it took this long to find a guy to believe in but now that he's here im all on board.

    Could Drew tank? Sure, and he will probably have some stinkers but even Elway had stinkers of games in his career. The difference was John also had a lot of games in which he showed he was a reason not to give up on as a player. Its not about Drew being perfect every game or every snap, its about him showing composure, leadership, and being consistent as a player and if he has that than i think we have our guy. If i gave guys like Trevor, Brock, and Case a chance and got behind them than its important for me to get behind Drew at least until he proves that he isnt the guy. IMO

    Denver finally finds a young QB and the world is stricken with a pandemic. Figures.

    I still think Baker Mayfield can be a decent NFL starter... I think about how he had a similar end to his rookie season and expectations were sky high headed into last season -- then his play declined and he took a step back.

    I'm cautiously optimistic about Lock, and he does have the look of a guy who belongs, but this league can humble you fast and a little negative momentum can snowball. So I understand the sentiment...

    On the other hand, we've been QB starved for a while now, so if some fans would like to remove their pants at this stage, I ain't mad at them...

    RIP Elway and Peyton - it's nice they are looking down on our QBOTF though.

    I think "pumping the brakes" on him is exactly what the front office has done this offseason. They upgraded the interior line by adding Glasgow, went out and made sure there is a 1A and 1B at running back, and made sure the defense can hold its own. This will be a team that features the running game and plays strong defense.

    My main worry is whether or not Tim Patrick and DaeSean Hamilton can make plays at WR. Shurmur's offense relies heavily on 3 WR packages, so it is a given that even with a first or second rounder spent here, their productivity is going to be important across from Sutton. I think we are in much better shape than Shurmur's Giants were last year, but it will be interesting to see how this position group shapes out by the end of training camp.

    Of course, there's also the whole Bolles situation. I fully expect him to be back next year, and I fully expect the team to pick up his 5th year option.
