    Broncos are all in on Lock per Gregg Rosenthal

    https://mobile.twitter.com/greggrose...83315870654465

    I mean its not like we needed confirmation of that in my opinion. It seems Bronco Country believes in Drew Lock.However it is good to hear the team speak highly of Lock.

    I think now that we have a franchise QB we get him franchise weapons. I guarantee Elway takes a wr#1. (Although I do think he is doing a much better job drafting based on character instead of team need in my opinion. Aka he believes in best player available now drafting.)

    If we take a Wr #1 we might have a top 10 offense in the NFL. Teams started doubling Sutton down the stretch. He needs someone to take some of the burden off of him to truly open the offense up. (By the way this isnt a shot at current Bronco wrs whom all seemed to have an uptick in production and effectiveness once Lock started)

    However, I heard this is the deepest we draft in years and wrs have been producing out of the draft lately.

    As you say, I am not surprised that the organization has bought in, because most of the fans certainly have.

    I also think it is a consensus of the folks here that believe a WR or two, either in FA and/or likely one of the first two rounds of The Draft are in the cards....very possibly 2 new faces. This is highly discussed in the Draft/FA forum.

    Youth movement Mr. Elway, no more overpriced, overrated, band-aid free agent solutions. Wholesale youth movement, all across the board. I'll accept a 6-10 season if it means we are trying to develop youth for the years to come.

    Yes please. I think his fear might make him do something silly, but when it comes to making us younger, I'm with you.

    They should be all in on Lock. Fans like him but more importantly the team likes him. He can play, he can win and if we can get some great talent around him we have a shot. Finding the right rookie QB is huge because they have such cheap contracts. We have cap space and a lot of draft picks, I think we can build something special this year!!!

    As opposed to what? You replied to the article I posted with

    "You always talk with high level players. Why would you not? Organizations do it all the time when hiring coaches, you can gain extra information and new perspective. It would be foolish if Brady called, and the team didn't even pick his brain. "

    You kinda implied I had an opinion on the article, but I do not. I didn't post it to argue about it, it was just information. Sooooo....

    It's not like you've posted in other threads or anything about us not believing in Lock. You even responded later in this thread about how you "think" Elway might do something silly. So yes, an expected response on something you've dug in on to be contrarian.

    I would not even entertain the thought of talking to TB about anything. We should as an organization, start to develop young QB's moving forward in the future.

    There's no point in playing as if Lock isn't the guy. Lock is literally the only move Elway can make without incensing the entire fanbase. Do you think we would accept another year of a bridge QB, or take a developmental prospect like Jordan Love or Jacob Eason? It's pretty obvious, and that should make it easier for free agents to know what kind of organization they'd be buying into.

    Peyton Manning has forgotten more about football than even the most passionate fan will ever know. When he retired following the Denver Broncos' 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50, he did so as the owner of every major passing record in NFL history.

    Many of Manning's career marks have since been broken by the likes of Tom Brady and Drew Brees, both of whom are playing well into their 40s. That's what it takes to unseat Manning statistically. Two-plus decades of NFL experience.

    Manning still is the only 5-time NFL MVP and he's also the only quarterback to start in and win a Super Bowl with two different teams. Manning did it with the Indianapolis Colts, leading them to two Super Bowl berths, winning one, and he did the same for the Broncos.

    The distinction is that Manning's four-year run in Denver featured an unprecedented level of success, as if he managed to take everything he had learned and accomplished in 14 years in Indy and condense it into pure football efficiency in the Mile High City.

    Times have been dark in Denver since 'The Sheriff' hung up his cleats. However, the Broncos appear to have 'bounced off the bottom' and are trending upwards once again, thanks to the emergence of QB Drew Lock.


    The Broncos are no longer wandering the QB desert. Drafted with the 10th pick in the second round (42 overall), Lock debuted as a starter for the Broncos in Week 14 and promptly led the team to its strongest finish since Manning called the signals.

    Lock's 4-1 record as a starter has given him and the team real momentum, prompting the Broncos to officially anoint him the starter heading into 2020. As the 2019 season ended, Lock made public his goal of reaching out to Manning who still lives in Denver to build on their acquaintance and get advice on how to best focus his training efforts during the offseason.

    Due to a little vacation, which was followed by a procedure to have his wisdom teeth removed, Lock and Manning weren't able to hook up in January. But thanks to a new report by one of Manning's former teammates and close friend, Brandon Stokley, we've learned that Lock has spent nearly two hours on the phone with Manning importuning him for advice on the offseason.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    @bstokley14
    Ive been told Peyton and Drew Lock had a phone conversation that lasted 90 minutes. The talk was about everything, from what film Peyton would watch in the offseason to when to start throwing to when to try and get the receivers together etc #Broncos
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    While Lock will certainly get great coaching and a plan of attack from OC Pat Shurmur and QBs Coach Mike Shula, that relationship can't really take shape in earnest until the Broncos convene for their first OTAs following the draft. Meanwhile, Lock can take Manning's advice on film study habits, when and how to start throwing, and getting the receivers together and put a plan of action in place.

    Lock showed a lot in his first five starts. The Broncos are excited about what they have in him. But he can't rest on his laurels. As good as Lock was at times down the stretch, he still has a lot of room to grow, as GM John Elway said on Tuesday from the Combine.

    Sky's the limit for Lock. It's just a matter of putting in the work required to bridge the gap from where he finished his rookie season to where he wants to be when year two begins.

    It's good that Lock isn't taking anything for granted and that he's seeking the advice of arguably the greatest QB in NFL history. It shows a humbleness but also a drive to become the best possible player he can.

    What I wouldn't give to be a fly on the wall, or a bug on that phone call, while Manning dished to Lock.
