The Denver Broncos finished the 2020 season with a 5-11 record, good for last place in the AFC West.
Unfortunately, one of the bigger reasons was because of the quarterback play.
Another reason was that the team was missing a lot of starters on both sides of the ball, including Courtland Sutton and Von Miller.
The Broncos were put in bad positions, with inexperienced players and free-agent pickups that didn’t perform to their star potential.
If the 2020 season told us anything, it is that the Broncos need to stay at full health in order to be successful and that ultimately will help both sides of the ball, like a chain effect.
With it being just the start of March, there are plenty of things the Broncos need to figure out before the 2020 season kicks off; none bigger than the first one on this list.
1. Competition for Drew Lock
Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock needs to improve if he’s going to be the future of the team.
One of his issues is that he doesn’t go through his reads properly, resulting in mistakes. That has happened far too often, and at inopportune times
So, what’s the solution?
Either he improves, or he’s out. What’s one of the better ways to improve? Have someone on your tail. Lock needs to have a threat down his back; Someone who will be able to step in in his place if he doesn’t impress coaches enough.
There have been some names that have been linked to the Broncos, including Deshaun Watson, Russell Wilson, and recently Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Those first two names are players who would create a domino that would include Lock. What does that mean, exactly? It means that Lock would be out as the quarterback of the Broncos automatically. Adding Fitzpatrick would allow him to actually compete.
