Paxton Lynch’s final stat line was as unimpressive in the live game as it looks on paper.
He finished with six completions on 11 pass attempts with 24 yards, an interception, and a nine-yard sack.
Lynch, unfortunately, continues to show signs of regression from what he showed as a rookie in 2016 when he was making correct reads with the ball, showing off his arm strength, and when he was actually able to operate an offense without looking like he had no clue what was going on.
We’ve been very supportive of Lynch and continue to hope he eventually figures it out, but he has to be better than what he showed.
In his third NFL camp, Lynch should be able to go in for the stretch of time he did against the Vikings’ backup defense and put together at least two or three scoring drives with much more effective and efficient passing.
Lynch is still missing simple reads and is having a hard time even making correct decisions with his legs when he feels the pocket breaking down.
The Broncos put a huge vote of confidence in Lynch but he’s letting them down. He needs to be better.
