No. I'm talking about the general decision to carry only 2 QB's.

Well there are cases when you keep 3. Like you feel like you're in contention and want an experienced backup, but you've got a young kid you want to protect...

But we have no real experience on the roster behind #1. And no reason to try to protect a loser nobody wants with one more year on his deal.

If we keep 3 it will likely be a pure cash saving move.

It's been two years, and one week of TC. The first preseason game hasn't been played, much less the first deadline for cuts. "What his eyes tell him"...at a week of drills and guys mostly running around in shorts...doesn't really interest me much. His only purpose is to draw attention to himself.

Lynch is in his final TC more than likely, but he should be given the opportunity to at least have that. I like what I've heard of Kelly so far, but let's not pretend he's playing real games out there. It's practice. They will both have a chance to show what they've got soon enough.

That seems like its an entitlement due to draft position to me. Hes shown nothing and has actually regressed since coming into the league.

Kelly would win this job for back up over Lynch if 31 other FOs/HCs were deciding it.

I’d be lying if I said I was rooting for Paxton this weekend. I’d like to to see Sloter and Kelly dominate. Maybe Elway will see the mistake he made last year and realize he shouldn’t make it twice.

It's smart to not lock yourself in to a point of view. That allows a person to adjust their position as new information and perspectives become available... pumpkin.

'Playmaker' Chad Kelly needs No. 2 reps sooner, not later



https://247sports.com/nfl/denver-bro...ter-120438407/


The Denver Broncos can dance around the topic all they want. I refuse to.
Chad Kelly has earned second-string quarterback snaps. Now. Period.
He hasn't had the most head-turning training camp, no. He's not fully polished or perhaps merely halfway refined. He's a former seventh-round draft pick coming off multiple surgeries and yet to take a single meaningful snap in the NFL.
But Kelly is also something that his competitor, Paxton Lynch, isn't.
“He’s a playmaker. He’s always been a playmaker," Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said. "You watch his college tape two years ago, he just makes plays. It doesn’t always look pretty, but he just makes plays.”
This reputation was on display Sunday during the first scrimmage of camp. With Case Keenum and the starting offense floundering, and Lynch wholly unimpressive if not calamitous, Kelly entered with the threes and immediately brought a spark, completing a pair of beautifully-thrown touchdown passes to Jordan Leslie and Mark Chapman, respectively. He even sacrificed himself on a downfield block for running back De'Angelo Henderson during an ensuing "series."
I'm fully aware it's practice, and deducing anything based on 12 plays between third-stringers is a fool's errand. But I also know that Kelly's effort was undeniable. What he put on tape was unmistakably thought-provoking, forcing an admission from those seemingly stacking the deck against him.
“Chad looked good," said Joseph. "I think he threw two touchdowns within five plays. Yeah, he looked good.”

Joseph, entering a do-or-die second season, has preached competition -- over and over and over. The Broncos say the best man, either Lynch or Kelly, will back up Keenum when real football rolls around. But if it appears like they want Lynch, their 2016 first-round choice, to win the job ... well, that's because they do.
Consider: Kelly still, through eight practices, hasn't taken a No. 2 rep. Not a single one. The prevailing notion was he finally did enough in the scrimmage to attain such an opportunity.
Nope.

It's pretty simple. The Broncos have to keep Lynch as the 2nd string in order to get anything in return in a trade. Elway sees what everyone else sees.

Kelly, however, has consistently outshined Lynch and was clearly the superior quarterback in a recent scrimmage.

Cut Lynch, sign some guy, move Kelly to #2.

I don't even care about the cap hit for cutting Lynch anymore.

Great to see him living up to the hype. Credit where credit’s due to Shane and the other guys who were excited about him.
