I swear I have no clue how anyone looks at his performance and thinks "what a smart, physical marvel"

He spent basically the whole game throwing laterally and that throw you mention was his first read and wide open. He threw three decent balls last night.

Griese has insight and tells it like it is. A lot of his analysis would be more for a seasoned pro than basically a rookie. I'm surprised Elway invited him back this year.
Elway likes fluff.

Musgrave designed a watered down spread offense for Lynch. Kudos to Musgrave. Not the type of offense that will win games in the NFL.

When did i ever say he was a physical marvel?

Are you telling me Paxton is not physically talented?

Whether he is smart enough is debatable. From the reports, Paxton is immature. He is not putting in the time off the field to be a QB in the NFL.

I can tell you Tebow was not smart enough to be a QB in the NFL. Tebow spent time off the field and still couldn't read defenses.

I'm saying for all the talk about his great arm, I've never seen him use it. The next throw he fits into a tight window will be his first.

I'm also fairly convinced that if Paxton's first read is covered, he forgets where everyone else is. Just like Timmy did.

i'm now hoping he makes the roster so we can get something !anything! for him.

musgrave really is a sneaky son of a gun with all those quick outs.

Lynch actually looked good last night. Still late on reads some plays, but you can tell he has physical ability with his arm and also his legs. Probably too little too late. He played last night with no fear against scrubs and it would have been good to see hat 2-3 years ago.

He played well last night but both sides need a fresh start for the better.

Hope Elway can find a trade partner.

Remember Lynch used to run an offense in college where Winnie the Pooh was a play card.

To be fair, Lynch looked pretty confident and effective in his rookie preseason. Not brilliant, obviously, but he could sustain drives and score.

Then some unknown event happened that destroyed his confidence.

Still, I would move on. Lynch has shown he can get down on himself for long stretches, and that IMO is the worst quality in a QB.

I doubt it was some unknown event so much as just being forced to take on more of what's expected for an NFL QB.

They keep it simple for you out of the gates, and then gradually weigh you down with more and more responsibility. Some guys can take it. Some aren't equipped.

I'd say that Lynch has a big arm, but he can't utilize it because he can't read a defense. He can't make the right decision, so he just throws short. It's the safest thing that he can do.

A guy like Kelly, and most legit QBs, they'll have no fear in driving the ball down field because they know what they're doing. Lynch is just lost, especially after his first read isn't open.

Lynch has no vision and anticipation. He just looks for guys to get open then makes the decision. He did that last night. Wasting the small open windows that other QBs take advantage of. You fail in this league that way.

Kelly throws with vision and anticipation. The ball is out before the target is open, and it hits the spot when the open window comes into play. That is a sign of a legit QB. Lynch isnít legit.

One of the other clear indicators of a promising, legit QB is the ability to throw under any circumstances over the middle of the field. Kelly did it last night a number of times. He seems to have no fear whatsoever putting the ball into tight windows over the middle, usually for big gains.
I can't recall Paxil throwing over the middle. He's always drifting to one side or the other and he only seems to be a perimeter player. Everything is to the sidelines, if he isn't sacked 1st.

One ok game against guys who are headed to the street isn't going to make Lynch stick. The only thing that he may stick for is his cap hit.

Denver loses 3 mil in cap if he's cut, barely anything if traded. Need to find a trade partner.

Exactly, which is why we should be happy that he looked competent in the final preseason game. Lets hope it was enough to convince another front office to take a chance on him. It's less about the pick we get in return, and more about mitigating the cap hit to remove him from the 53 man roster.
