    But they have other backup Rypien. Teams will usually release the players that loses the competition in order to let them catch on to another team.

    You are correct. Lock is not a distraction at that level. The Broncos and local media “ insiders” have done an excellent job of making it clear he lost the job and is not a good QB. Bridgewater is the “ best chance to win”. Fangio has made it clear that Lock will never see the field even if Bridgewater is limited due to injury or embarrassingly quits competing for his team.

    To my question though, if Lock is so useless why waste a roster spot on him?

    Goff is going to cost 31m towards Detroit's cap next year. that's a lot of money per a tie..

    If it was up to Fangio, Lock would be long gone. The good news is Paton gets to make that decision. Lock will be here next year and Fangio probably won't and hopefully neither will Shurmur. Lock can get a real coach that actually believes in him and we can finally see if he can function in a real offense.

    What baggage exactly? The kid got screwed. He had a fine rookie season then got Pat Shurmur dumped in his lap. Shurmur shouldn’t be coaching pop Warner football. Drew was forced into Shurmurs lame duck system and simply does not fit it. So instead of adjusting his system to fit the skillset of his QB they go out and find some turd who had moderate success in that played out system to replace him. The way Fangio handled the QB competition is embarrassing. Lock was always the guy. Our horrific coaching staff dropped the ball and possibly ruined a kids career. I won’t watch another game that Bridgewater is under center.
    I agree with what you’re saying.

    However, there are a lot of people who want to fault Lock while at the same time saying the coaching staff is garbage. After only 18 games, many fans want to write Lock off as a bust. It makes no sense, but that’s what it is.

    If the Broncos had drafted Mac Jones, you probably would see people pining for him to start over Bridgewater. Lock has baggage, so there isn’t going to be a cavalry charge for him to start.

    But from the adamant refusal to play him the coaches and his teammates must feel he is completely incompetent and useless.

    Which begs the question, why is such a useless player still on the roster?

    Seems a good business decision would have been to trade him or cut him once the coaches made up their minds. Remove the distraction and either elevate Rypien or sign another journeyman as backup.

    Just another perplexing decision by this team.

    It can’t be that. Why would Lock be the primary back up, if he’s so useless?

    There is something weird going on though. None of it makes sense.

    At least we didn't give up draft capital to get Jared Goff.

    Even with better QB play we are not a playoff team. You can't give up the amount we do in the run game defensively unless Peyton Manning in his prime is your QB of course also essentially being his own OC. Even the Colts played better run defense late in the season than Denver is right now when Peyton won the his first Super Bowl. The Colts were a bad run defense that year.

    I am not a Lock fan, just no. However, maybe the kid has a little trade value if a team or 2 sees him play so that they can at least see if he is worth a backup job. I am not a big fan of tanking. Drew should play this week but he won't unless we are getting killed, or Bridgewater gets hurt, or maybe not even then.

    "Teddy's our Quarterback"

    No he's YOUR QB, and thanks for freeing my Sundays up.

    Why would I watch anymore? Do you think Bridgewater was like "oops, hey y'all are right I'll actually start trying now"?

    When you have the QB taking plays off and then joking with the opposition about letting them score, why in the flatbill hat would I waste one more second?
