    How many of those 32 needed to invest a 1st round pick on a QB. Maybe 4. Cardinals didn't need to but did. Giants made a monumental mistake. Elway and company believe in Flacco. Redskins where dead set on Haskins and probably sent the Giants a gift basket. I think Miami knew they were getting Rosen from the Cardinals and nobody else needed to invest a 1st Rd pick on a QB.

    That’s not really a barometer. 32 teams passed on Russell Wilson.

    Nobody including our own team drafted Harris. He must be horrible then.

    You also have to remember the talent level around Lock and the talent level he was playing against. I think Flacco will have a good year for us with the weapons he has around him. Sanders, Sutton, Hamilton , Fant, Lyndsay, Freeman and the improved O Line. But I also think about the 18 mill Flacco is making and where else we could have spent that. Could have brought back Paradis and Veldheer and had more depth on the O Line, Brought in Zach Brown to compete at ILB, Tre Boston is still out there as well.

    So you’re saying it’s like going to Vegas knowing the odds are against you and when you go tits up you claim you’re a winner because you predicted it!

    Huh? It's a terrible contract for a QB who could only start on Denver, Miami, or Washington. Maybe not even the latter two.
    Name a better guy you think could be brought in for cheaper on a 1-year deal?

    I am beginning to think Flacco will surprise a lot of people this year. If the offensive line comes together, it will fun to watch.

    Classic. Laughing at you guys claiming that you can truly analyze college QB "tapes". Guys that make millions doing this as their job, and watch more than the occasional highlights and youtube clips you guys are watching, don't have a clue. Let's not pretend you know any better.
    Action can just ask him.

    If you are impressed by this type of crap that is how players like Leaf get picked ahead of Manning.

    Difference being is I don't have much faith that spread offense QB's will come in and play at a moderate to high level in the NFL. Think the jump is too big. There are certain offenses that consistently win in the NFL and it's more old school than it is new school IMO. Learn to play under center, have WR's run a route tree, go through progressions. Big difference from what they see in college.

    I'm not sure I buy the "sit for a few years" narrative because it just doesn't make sense in the modern NFL. You can be a young player and have success in the league. I do think he needs to take his lumps and see if he can figure it out. There seem to be 2 ways to win in the NFL. Have a good QB on a cheap contract and fill out the rest of the roster, or have a hall of fame QB. If Drew Lock sits and then turns out to be good, then our window is much smaller before we have to pay him.

    I never made that claim. So I guess I return the laughing you are doing at you, for laughing at something I never said.

    Having said that however, you can watch all of his games on youtube. I haven't been looking at the all 22 because I do not care. But you are a fool if you think you can not tell that dude has footwork problems, that he wont have as much time behind our line, that he throws off his backfoot too much and is not consistent. Anyone with one single eye ball can see this.

    If you think differently, I would love to get your counter opinion on the matter. If you think anything I said is not correct, I too would love to get your opinion on that too.

    Any analysis of Lock's college tape should lead you to the conclusion that he is the classic boom or bust QB prospect, High ceiling, but also a very low flow. Any Broncos fan with a functioning memory should be nervous as our last boom or bust QB prospect definitely went pear shape on us.

    I'm not trying to compare Drew Lock to Paxton Lynch. They are different QBs with different playing styles and each have their own suite of issues and shortcomings that potentially limit them in the NFL. But, I am definitely happy that we have only invested a 2nd round pick in acquiring Lock. That does help mitigate some of the risk associated with his development.

    Ive been watching a bunch too. He is not ready this year. Not by a long shot. I am all for getting him some reps just because he needs them, but really, for the longterm of he and of us. He does not see the field this year. Flacco plays well enough for drew to learn and fix his mistakes of throwing off back foot, not setting his feet and dealing with pressure, also reading the defense better. He needs a lot of work in those departments.

    I still cannot wait to see him in preseason and do think he can be our future. He could end up being really really good! oR he could end up being a cutler. Not consistent and drives you crazy.
