How will Drew Lock’s second outing go?
Drew Lock’s preseason debut wasn’t spectacular, but it was not terrible. He completed 7-of-11 passes, which isn’t bad at all. But the thing that stands out the most is that he threw for just 34 yards.
He was sacked twice.
Fangio stated after the Hall of Fame game that he wasn’t surprised, but was hoping to see more out of Lock.
It’s true: despite Lock playing football in college, the NFL is a whole different ballgame. It is faster. That is just something Lock and the other young players will have to get used to—and they will.
There is absolutely no reason for anybody to panic when it comes to Drew Lock. We’ve heard it countless times and it is obvious: the plan is for Lock to improve throughout the year, but we should not expect him to play in the regular season.
I also would love to see Lock take command of the huddle and show leadership qualities, but that won’t necessarily be the case, as he isn’t the starter. It would be nice though.
The game is in Seattle on Thursday, and the Seahawks have one of—if not the loudest crowds in the entire league and probably in all of sports. It will be a good test for Lock.
