No matter who you are, the shadows of the great Denver quarterbacks stand out tall. While fans’ expectations for the position aren’t always fair, it is just like that when they are the focus for the Broncos. For the past few weeks everyone and everyone has had an opinion on how Drew Lock should play football.
At the start of the game on Sunday, it turned out that the coaches had taken their time over the course of the week to make Drew Lock the fear of mistakes. He was shy and overly careful about where to go with the ball. The gunslinger looking for the home run game had been replaced by this checkdown-happy cheater.
For the first three quarters of Sunday’s game, offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur called the type of game that Trevor Siemian and Keenum case Followers could get really upset. It was frustrating to see and it had to be frustrating to do.
Shurmur, who plays offensively, plays like he’s mad at Fangio.

Honestly, the Chargers game had a 2015 feel to it. Like Gary Kubiak trying to force Peyton Manning playing in the Kubiak offense it doesn’t work, and then asking Peyton to go out there and win it his way. Something happened in Q4 and Lock broke Shurmur’s shackles and began to work his way. It was fun to see! It was wonderful! Most of all, it was productive.
I think the Broncos have to evaluate how they care for Drew Lock. If they’re too restrictive, he’ll fidget. If you let it be on its own, it will flourish. Let Drew play in and take risks. It may be ugly at times, but that’s his game. You have to participate.

The Broncos have to find a happy medium as they move forward with Drew Lock. SiemianDoing it is not the solution and does not always swing at the fences with every pass. What Broncos Country saw on Sunday was special. Lock clearly has the skills and drive to be a long-term fix at Denver quarterback. It depends how the Broncos bring him. While there is this urge to put the brackets on to minimize mistakes, it will only stifle its growth. The Broncos must resist this and find ways to turn Drew Lock into Drew Lock, much like they did when time ran out against the Chargers on Sunday.
What a great win! Enjoy it Broncos Country.
