    New concept, QB by committee, let the Best man Win. I'm excited for this season.

    There is a lot of work to be done but right now from what I have seen, watched and read....Teddy is the better QB for us in 2021.

    There is a lot of work to be done. I do hope Lock can improve in specific areas at the very min.

    I think we have two decent QBs. And if everybody does their job, we should be a competitive football team.

    Lock missed games the last two years, so Bridgewater is a depth upgrade at least. Competition usually results in enhanced performance and we'll find out about that next month. The QB position is most likely stronger than it was last year. The strength and depth of all other positions plus a balanced offense can help the QB position perform as well as possible.

    Until Lock “proves” it on the field there will not be a change to the negative narrative.

    IMO this QB situation has the potential to be solid for the team. Lock showing improvement and Bridgewater showing how much of a professional he is. A great combo that is not given much credit across the league. We shall see what they do in games. That is the only test that will matter.

    For all the reasons above, I think the Broncos QB situation will surprise many. My biggest concern is the unrealistic expectations for a developing QB. Especially if / when the Rodgers fiasco doesn’t go the way many want. I’m hopeful the combo has enough of an impact and wins to quiet the chatter. They control the narrative. Play well and the rest sorts itself out.

    then missed half of camp, 2/3 of season practice, and played in five games

    Then his second season no OTAs , no in house coaching, and learning a second offense, then another year of not getting preseason games , started the season, lost his #1 target in week two along with himself missing the next three games due to injury, then playing with at least three rookie rec, rookie center, and the youngest offense in the league

    and you expect him to not play like a rookie within the 17 games he has played in the league

    these aint excuses these are facts

    give the dude some time

    There are players that make teams better and there are players that make teams worse.

    That is a fact.

    So, I guess we're good with Drew Lock then, and we don't have to worry about Aaron Rodgers either!

    He does when he’s the quarterback. I will say that quarterbacks are given too much credit as evidenced by people making excuses for Aaron Rodgers for not winning more Super Bowls.

    If Lock completely struggles and can't move the ball and can't score points. I can see Bridgewater coming in, and running the offense efficiently and effectively. I'm not sure if he can make the Broncos into a winning football team, but I think he can move the chains and score some points and win some games.

    I get that Drew Lock clearly has more upside and he does. The team’s offensive potential is greater at Lock’s ceiling. But 2020 showed what it looks like now (until further improvement) or at his worst.

    Count me in as one of the people who were slightly underwhelmed when we traded for Bridgewater, especially since I had been a huge advocate for drafting Justin Fields all offseason.

    But here is the thing with Teddy and why a “dink-and-dunk”, conservative offensive style isn’t such a bad thing after all. How many times did offensive drives flame out really early in the first half of games, allowing the opposing team to score and beat down/tire out our defense? The first game against KC and the ATL game were classic examples of this. Imagine if we had a passer who could simply execute Shurmur’s plays and sustain possessions? For once, I would love the offense to move the sticks consistently and march into the redzone. Occasional big plays of 20+ yards are nice, but I don’t mind steady 5-10 yard gains either. I want our starting QB to take care of the football and make smart decisions. Just cutting down on turnovers alone would take our offense to the next level.
