Drew Lock’s disappointing debut was unsurprising, per head coach Vic Fangio, but it was disappointing nonetheless.
Denver Broncos fans of course want to see Lock succeed. We’re all tired of failed quarterback experiments, signings, draft picks, trade acquisitions, and any other way you can bring these guys in.
Everyone wants to see a young star, but Lock is human and he’s learning the ropes.
Even expecting a complete turnaround in game number two is unreasonable, but there’s a lot at stake for Lock in this game against the Seahawks.
The opener against the Falcons was not a very good first impression. Lock was inaccurate even on throws he’s normally quite good at, and he looked uncomfortable under pressure and struggled with his feet.
All correctable mistakes, all things we want to see improved in game two.
There’s no question the pressure is on for Lock in this game against the Seahawks. The Broncos groomed him over the last week to take reps with the second unit, though he will not work exclusively with that group. Kevin Hogan will still play ‘a little’ per Fangio.
Lock will have a chance to prove himself and show the fruits of his labor on the field and in film study over the last week.
