The team still hasn’t found “the guy”

Quarterback questions have hovered over the franchise since Peyton Manning retired, and they don’t seem to be going away any time soon.

This was supposed to be the year that Lock became the face of the franchise for the next several years to come, but the injury he suffered in Week 2, which has sidelined him since, put a halt on that.

Now there are going to be plenty of Broncos fans that insist he is still the future of the quarterback position for the Broncos, but that is far from being proven definitively.

Instead, the Broncos have had to roll with the likes of Jeff Driskel and Brett Rypien, two guys who are really nothing more than career backups at best. Luckily, Lock will return soon and be able to continue to show the front office that the team should believe in him going forward.

Unfortunately for Lock, if the Broncos continue to lose and end up with one of the higher picks in the draft, a quarterback would have to be considered with the likes of Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields and Trey Lance expected to be a part of next year’s selection process.

Many fans are not going to want to hear that, but it is a possibility. Of course, Lock could easily put all of that talk to bed by returning to the field and leading the team to victories.
