I think that is probably the position that has the most ? all the other "rooms" seem pretty well set... wait, not PR but that is something that can be ironed out in the regular season ... IMO
    Overall the defense still looks good, even the 2nd team against the 2nd/3rd team.
    The few plays Rypien played actually looked better than Hogan but that doesn't mean much. I want to see more Rypien in the 2nd half.
    I think Josh Watson will end up ahead of Johnson. Unfortunately I don’t think Carter makes it at ILB, even in coverage which should be a strength he just kind of looks lost. Not sure if he had PS eligibility or not but that’d be ideal for him to relearn the LB position while adding weight.

    Edit: I think that it’d be a good idea to give players an extra season of PS eligibility for position switches, but make it like a one time thing

    Because of injury his first 2 seasons I think he would be eiligible for the PS, not sure though. That might be a good option for him and the Broncos.

    Bad pass. Totally missed the linebacker. Still, he goes through his reads much better than Hogan.

    Can I take a mulligan on my comment that Rypien looked comfortable? 👀

    I agree. Denver would be in trouble if either Hogan or Rypien needed to take over the starting role, but Rypien at least looks like he has a chance to become a more reliable player. Hogan is just uninspiring and unimpressive.

    I'd argue that Rypien could be better but still very raw.

    They reported early in this game that the Broncos asked the Niners if they'd be willing to trade one of their back up QBs. I would have loved to have had mullins, although it might make things tough for Lock ......... and muddy the waters in general

    The early bird may get the worm, but the 2nd mouse gets the cheese

    Agreed. Rypien has some upside.

    That move would make Siemian proud.

    I say Fake News, the Broncos don't need a QB of their caliber, they already have that. And they don't really need to trade? somebody or a draft pick for UDFAs

    Yeah, I think there needs to be a new search for a backup QB until Lock is healthy. Don't like the idea of either Hogan or Rypien as #2 based on the look of things tonight.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they had interest in Mullins and Beathard. Both would be much better options as backups.

    They might be, but it has a cost and we are talking backups, I find it hard to believe they are looking at backups with Lock's "sprained thumb". I certainly could be wrong though.
