  • Jeff Driskel signs with Denver

    Guess that answers who our #2 QB will be. Mike Klis also tweeted that we will look to get rid of Flacco after making this signing.

    Can't say I'll miss Joe. Easily one of the worst QBs we've had recently. Poor play. Poor attitude. Better his time as a Bronco be forgotten about completely.

      Not Hall of Fame worthy obviously but not knowing much about the kid I thought I’d find some tape. Pretty impressive against decent defenses. https://youtu.be/XSAYXK-B-c0

          Jeff Driskel - IN, Flacco - OUT. I can live with this.

            The best news about this is that Flacco is GONE. And just like that, $10 million more in the bank account.

              He showed some mobility, ability to improvise and a couple of accurate throws on the move.

              On a side note, Glasgow was solid blocking in most of those plays.

                A slower. Much slower version of Lamar Jackson. But compared to Flacco, this kid is lightning fast.

                  I like the signing, I don’t think he’s a particularly good QB or even a decent backup but it tells me that the offense is going to get Lock moving around. I expected it somewhat but I think it’ll feature his mobility a bit more prominently than I expected.

                    I agree he isn't Lamar, but his 40 time was 4.56 which is pretty fast for a QB.

                      Especially for a 6'4" 234lb QB. Interesting that Lamar didn't run the 40 at the combine or pro day; I wonder what his 40 time is?

                        The DenverBroncos.com guys say Driskel's skill sets line up good with Lock so that if he needs to play we will not need to change much.

                        I assume Driskel's arm strength may cause a small amount of adjustment but besides that they said his mobility is similar to Lock's

                          No, he's not. I watched him a ton in college, and I've seen him play in the pros. He has always sucked and will always suck

                            Definite maybe on that. Looks like he may have interception issues.

                              Back in March I was intrigued by the signing. Driskel is a really athletic QB and can move the chains with his legs. That is a nice bonus to have in a backup QB who may struggle to run the same passing offense. He's young and competitive and he seemed like a good option.
                              Post draft, I'm not so sure anymore. We are going to need someone who can come in and throw the ball. After the addition of the WRs and TE in the draft, our personnel dictates that we pass.

                              In a perfect world Driskel never sees the field, but the NFL is rough and Lock is still untested. I want to believe that Lock will continue to improve, but the reality is we have no idea. Another reality is our OTs- though serviceable- are no sure thing.

                              I have faith in Shurmurs input into the Driskel signing, he would have to run the offense after all- but I have to believe they never expected the WR draft to pan out as it did. More versatile/bigger WRs might be a different story, but post draft we are smaller and faster. I'm not sure what Driskel does with that if he is called upon.
