Default Predict Paxton's Future

How do you think Paxton will pan out on a scale of 1-10. Lets use the pantheon of former Denver QB's as the relative rating scale.

10 - will be the best QB Denver ever had
1 - will be the worst QB Denver ever had

SRY - #8 should be Morton

Maybe you should include a pain chart with the numbers inverted to help some of us decide.

I think he'll be better than Cutler, but not as good as Elway... maybe a step above Plummer.

Why in the hell is level 8 Orton? So it's either stud, stud jr or Orton and pray?

If you (casually) look at it statistically, there are 9 current starting QBs who have made it to the super bowl (if you count Colin Kaepernick). That's a little less than 1/3. And only 4 of them have made it multiple times (1/8). By the time Lynch is hopefully good enough to really lead an offense, who knows how our defense will be? So just by the numbers, the odds are against him making a super bowl. But I think at least making multiple playoffs is very likely.

Don't discount the Elway factor. Dude built a GOAT offense to a GOAT defense in 2 seasons.

Lynch has all the physical tools. It is all going to depend on how he manages information, reads defenses, doesn't develop bad habits, lose confidence when things don't go well, and any other parts of playing QB that involves a strong mentality. Which of course, is pretty hard to know at this point.

We will have a ton of cap space and we draft well. Defense will be fine.

This is very true but I tried to leave my bias out of it you do have to believe that a run-first, defense-oriented team is the type of team Elway will try to build year after year and if Lynch can get to the point where he's making 2 or 3 big plays per game while limiting turnovers then that could be a very lucrative formula.

You just never know...maybe once DWare and Talib are gone we just can't figure out how to replace them? We had a fantastic collection of pass rushers and defensive backs last season and most of them remain, but like Cecil Lammey said, this current defense has a couple-year window, then who really knows after that?

I think that he will build a balanced team. Something that can play in any type of weather and if the defense tries to take something away we can adjust and punish them.

Lynch's arm and feet allow for a lot of things, especially if the OL improves greatly next season.

Short of Elway getting lazy or starting to blow defensive picks, I don't see it.
You could argue that either Irving or Rahim are Elways worst picks on defense in the top 4 rounds.

Some might say Sly but NT's don't get a ton of stats anyway.
The defense may not remain at it's current level but the team is likely looking at a top 5-8 defense until Von, Harris and Roby get old.

There's definitely no reason to not be optimistic! We have so many young pass rushers and corners. It's gonna be awesome to see Roby play full time in a couple years, that guy is so damn good.

11 - They change the HoF rules in order to induct him early and waive the 5 year waiting period.
