    Troy Renck just shared a stat on Twitter that the Broncos are #1 this season in drops. 1 drop per every 8.31 catchable passes, league average is 14.45.

      Ok, Lock has played 2 games this season. I'm not counting the Steelers game because he barely got into it before being injured. Losing Sutton was a MAJOR blow to this team. Sutton, Fant and Patrick are the guys that Lock has time spent with and chemistry with. He is being asked to make magic happen with a bunch of rookies and backup tightends. The injury excuse is legit and we are going to have to be patient with this young offense.

      The bright spot that we should all be happy about is the offensive line. That bunch of guys have been playing some really good football (minus the Steelers game). That has been a hot button topic here and it would appear that issue has been resolved. We still need the RT addressed next off-season but so far Dotson is playing well. As long as these guys keep playing this good Lock will get more and more comfortable and the chemistry between he and Jeudy will get better too.....the points will come

        Then this is a problem to some degree. Maybe the boys will evolve past it, but still needs some attention.

        Thx for the info.

          Fair enough pal.

            But we need to score more points. We are averaging 20 points per game, which is 29th in the league. No TDs yesterday, even though we scored 6 field goals (great job McManus!). We are 30th in TDs this season. So this jumps out, even with Lock back, we are not converting. Why?

            Before I go further, another shout out to our D, as we are only giving up 22 points per game. If not for them, we might be real trouble.

            Anyway....yes, we lost Lock, Sutton, Lindsay, Fant and now Gordon, for various amounts of time. That may be the crux of it. But there must be more.

            What are your thoughts?

            Our QB's career is barely half a season, on paper he is in his second year, but realistically he's still a rookie with just 8 games under his belt Yet, if just 3 passes are not outright dropped by the receivers when the ball is perfectly thrown and in their hands, we hang 30+ points on one of the best defenses in the league, in their home stadium.

            The scoring will come.

              It appears like the dropped pass theme is a reasonably big factor. It could mean we are ok, and will only get better. Better than talking Oline all the time.

                We Need To... Beat The Chefs, and that will require better RZ offense.

                We also need this emoji with Chefs' and Chargers' logos. I can't believe we don't have those!

                  Watching the Chiefs and Bills.....

                  ..... Broncos are nowhere near being in the Chiefs league, especially, on offense.

                  Chiefs are going to destroy us next week. We're not going to snap our losing streak to them this year. 2015 and counting......

                        I don’t know. The Chiefs D isn’t the best and if our defense can play this Sunday like they did yesterday, we may just have a chance to steal one.

                        Granted it’s highly unlikely, but would still be really nice.

                          Why is that? We had 2-3 TDs dropped yesterday. They clean those up (or throw to the players who can catch) and things change drastically.

                          Maybe the KC game gets ugly, but they haven't been very good in their two divisional games so far. I think there's argument there where it's a very competitive game. Luckily they'll play it and we'll find out for sure.

                            I like ya'lls enthusiam, but I think its the first blowout of the year. Whats the average over the last 9 games? 31-14? It'll be something like that. I'll be glad if I'm wrong,.

                            The Broncos can't tackle, can't cover TE's and can't cover RBs out of the backfield. They're going to have to throw the ball to have any chance to keep up with KC, and for that reason alone we may see multiple TDs in a game, but I don't believe its gonna happen.

                                Watched the game again. Denver's O was 61% run/39% pass. Drew Lock completed ten of twenty-four for 42% completion, but was 7.9 ypa which means his pass completions were mostly long. Denver had ten possessions. Lock threw the ball into the EZ twice on the first posession, once on the second possession, three on the third and twice on the fifth. That's four possessions in which the ball was thrown into the EZ. Each one that might have scored would be four points more than the FG that resulted. So, if all the possessions where they took a shot at the EZ resulted in TDs, Denver would have scored sixteen more points for a total of thirty-four. Lock didn't connect on any of the EZ passes nor on the two picks, so that's ten of the fourteen incompletions.

                                In the 2nd quarter against Tennessee Denver had the ball inside the +5 and couldn't score after four downs. The score remained tied at 7. In the 4th quarter Denver had 2nd & G at the +1. They lined up Tight Wing I Left. Butt was the Wing. He and Vannett blocked down, Beck kicked out and Dalton pulled and led Gordon for the TD. Against Pittsburgh with 2:00 left in the 4th quarter down by 5 points, Denver had 3rd & 2 at the +15. Two passes were attempted one of which was incomplete and the other resulted in a sack. It bears repeating that Titans and Steelers are undefeated.

                                Against the Bucs Driskel was sacked six times before being benched with about ten minutes left in the 4th quarter. Rypien came in and moved the ball. Rypien started against the Jets and Denver scored 37 points.

                                Lock got hurt in the first possession at Pitt, so he has finished his second game this year coming off an injury to rotator cuff/labrum against a pretty good Pats Secondary. His season is just barely getting going. Completeing long pass attempts in a brand new offense with as many as six new starters takes a while for timing and chemistry. The O-Line is starting to jell. The win at NE is not to be underestimated. Those picks might have been from a tired arm. I'll bet the first time he threw a ball after the injury, it hurt like hell.

                                It seemed to be understood that D would need to carry the team until the offense started to click, and that's what seems to be happening. The win at NE was accomplished with a bunch of starters on IR and some out for the game. FO deserves credit for finding replacements and the coaching staff should get it for preparing them to play, especially the D with a bunch of guys who have just recently joined the team.
