Denver Broncos: What directions can the team take now?
So, what next for the Denver Broncos?
With three multi-interception games in the five games he’s played since coming off of a shoulder injury, Drew Lock is making it tough for even the most optimistic fans to remain faithful that this will all work out in the end.
With that being said, he has the next seven games to show progression, and frankly offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur has seven games to show he can help get him there.
Vic Fangio’s hands are somewhat tied in all of this, considering his unit has been decimated by injuries to key players throughout the season at every level, and that group has a number of guys showing big-time progression like Josey Jewell and Dre’Mont Jones, among others.
The offense has so much young talent, but right now, they look lost as a group. There are so few times the Broncos’ offense looks in sync, and it’s tough to stomach.
Still, with as young of a group as the Broncos have, growing pains were to be expected. Regression, however, was not.
The Broncos need to show signs of progress, or they are going to have to consider alternative options after this season.
The best-case scenario for the team is that something starts to click for Drew Lock, and he not only starts making better decisions with the ball, but he shows some consistency and ability to make accurate throws under pressure.
At this point in time, we are going to have to start seeing it rather than just hoping it can eventually happen. The clock is ticking with seven games to play.
