    I don't really see the benefit of making Drew
    Lock the Broncos sacrificial lamb.

    He's paid to make those throws and other QBs do. It's an excuse for poor play.

    Based on what? Your opinion? Was Minshew ready? Kyle Allen this year and last? Daniel Jones? Mason Rudolph? Mullins and Lamar Jackson last year? There are countless examples of young QBs being forced into the lineup one way or another. Survival of the fittest;sink or swim; those who fail with early playing time were always going to fail. Getting him on the field is setting him up for success. Riding the bench behind a bottom 10 QB is setting him up for failure.

    QBs are never "ready". They learn, adapt, and grow by playing. They get "ready" by playing. He can't play now, but with every loss it looks more and more likely that he plays sooner rather than later, and that is a good thing for his development or "readiness".

    In what way are people suggesting we make him so?

    We just want what is best for his development and the team's future. You develop on the field, and that helps the team by either developing a franchise QB or finding out that he doesn't have it, allowing us to continue the search.

    Nobody realistically knows if heís ready, even the coaches or Lock himself couldnít say for sure. Nobody knows what any of these players will do, itís a roll of the dice.

    Did anybody expect Kyle Allen to play as well as he did? Sunday morning most of figured that Panthers game was going to be disaster, then he threw 4 TDs. What about Gardner Minshew, in preseason he completed less than 60% of his passes and three 0 TDs, he wasnít ready, right?

    When heís healthy, stick him out and let him play, whether he succeeds or fails will have nothing to do with the amount of time he spends on the bench. Making QBs wait is such an outdated way of thinking.

    I hate to have to log in just to say this, but honestly you guys need to try being objective (to echo another poster's sentiments). Joe isn't even close to the problem on this team and he's actually the best performing player to date--let that sink in. Problem is he doesn't have time, nor does he have a number# target. Sutton can barely get open, they can't run, and Fant is still raw. Teams are just doubling Sanders who's great but has clearly lost a step. There's not a better QB on the roster and most definitely not one that can deliver a better ball at the right time. The problems are elsewhere.

    If you want objective...any objective analysis tells you Flacco is one of the worst starting QBs in the league. He has been for years. A wet interception doesn't change that.

    Seems to have worked well for Pat Mahomes

    That's my thought as well. He has some upside but he's pretty raw, not starter material until some development and plenty of practice which he's not getting while injured. And if our OL doesn't play better... looks like a recipe for re-injury, or "failure", or both. Then fans will scream "another QB bust" after he's been thrown to the wolves prematurely.

    You can't compare him to a generational talent...

    Don't rush him back, when he's ready start him.
    We don't want to panic and get all willy-nilly. Let the team get its game plan going, and the offensive line better, and then put Lock out there.

    Lock canít play he is injured, and he couldnít beat out Flacco in camp, best player plays.
    At this point he is not better than Flacco. Kid goes in there teams are going to go after him, not smart gonna turn him into David Carr

    You can't realistically draft a QB though and then wait however many years for the time to be right. If he can't play, it will show. Same as if he can play.
