If the Broncos don’t want to ruin Drew Lock, the team needs to show their love to young QB and put him on the bench. – The Denver Post


LAS VEGAS – If the Broncos like quarterback Drew Lock, they’ll bench him.”We’re committed to Drew, and the more he can play the better he will be,” Broncos coach Vic Fangio said on Sunday, after Lock defeated but continued to double down on bad bets in a humiliating loss 37-12 against. hated the Raiders.

“He has to fight, like most young quarterbacks do at some point in their careers. And we will continue to play it.

Sorry, Uncle Vic. I do not agree.

Engaged? This is what you do with someone who keeps repeating the same madness.

I’ve seen enough of the errors of reckless pride committed by Lock. The starting quarterback suffers from brain freeze so often that he quickly earns a nickname: “Vapor” Lock.

Do the Broncos want to ruin Lock and repeat the same failed process that gave us Brock Osweiler, Trevor Siemien and Paxton Lynch? Then let that quarterback keep banging his stubborn head against a wall while trying to squeeze the ball into the windows that turn out to be black holes.

I hate to tell you that, Uncle Vic. But history is on my side.

Long ago in 1983, when John Elway looked more like a confused rookie than a future Hall of Famer, coach Dan Reeves benched the team’s precious quarterback after Elway lost three games. consecutive in October.

So what makes Lock special? In a team that has let the stench of a losing culture seep through the walls of the Dove Valley headquarters and are 3-6 for the fourth season in a row, who are holding this sure young Missouri quarterback for responsible for his mistakes?

Are there no consequences? And do the Broncos care if they put his trust in the ground?
