Which Denver Broncos players are under the most pressure in the upcoming season?
The Denver Broncos have not won a playoff game since the 2016 postseason—heck, they haven’t even sniffed the playoffs since winning Super Bowl 50.
Unfortunately, another year of a playoff-less season could result in some major changes across the organization. As you may have heard, a common phrase used in the NFL, and really all sports, is “what have you done for me lately?”
The answer to that for the Broncos is simple: A whole lot of nothing. Sure, they have shown signs of improvement, but that has not translated very well in the ‘W’ column.
The first person up on this list is a guy that gets a lot (a loooottttt) of the blame…
Most people only see the bad things in Drew Lock’s game. I get it. He has been up and down since his 4-1 start to his career.
The good thing with Lock is that we have actually seen some phenomenal plays from him. The bad thing is that you never know what Drew Lock you will get each and every week.
Will you get the Lock that appeared against the Carolina Panthers, who threw 21-of-27 for 280 yards and four touchdowns? Or will you get the Drew Lock that showed up against the Las Vegas Raiders in week 9 that completed under 50 percent of his passes for one touchdown and four interceptions?
At this point in the offseason, it appears Lock doesn’t have to worry about Aaron Rodgers coming to Denver to take his job. He does, however, have to compete with Teddy Bridgewater, who was brought in through a trade with the Carolina Panthers.
If Lock gets beat out by Bridgewater, that is a very bad sign for the third-year quarterback. His seat is currently pretty hot.
