This homer is holding my breath and crossing my finger that Lock turns the corner.Well, I'm certainly not writing him off. I do think that he'll get a fair chance to win the job here, that knowing what Geno can and can't do, and barring an unexpected entrance from Mayfield or Jimmy G, they'll give Lock a good look-see. I just don't think, based on past histories of failed QB's, that anyone should hold their breath.
I'm not certain about LJ, but I believe Cinderella was always a princess.
I'll take those odds. I've been dealing with similar odds and have come through!Not until a rich powerful man rescued her because she couldn't get away from her circumstances on her own.
COULD Drew Lock be the next Drew Brees? I mean, it's possible. Like 4% possible.
Lock has a history of not playing good, that is why people are down on him. He's hasn't improved very much since he's entered the league. Blame it on coaching all you want, but bad coaches can ruin players. Sometimes the main problem lies at the feet of the player himself as well. Bridgewater walked into Fangio's system and did just fine, in fact he looked much better than Lock did on the field. Bridgewater himself had 3 different OC's and systems in three years.Brees' first 3 seasons at SD were awful, 29 TDs and 31 INTs. His next two at SD was 27 and 7 and 24 and 15. He started to get better his last two seasons at SD before NO.
Lock had 3 OCs in 3 years and a covid season hurting his time on the field to prepare and then a curmudgeon for a coach. He will be coming into a Waldron system that makes it easy for QB to have gimme throws every where and it made Goff look good.
Those are the excuses and positives. That being said I have no idea if Lock is good and he could suck. Just not willing to write him off like so many are.
Very well said, and you Drew Lock, are you reading this?Realistically, and the original video admitted as much, Drew Lock probably isn't a 1st ballot HOF QB even if he does become a perennial starter. I think the point is that you can see significant improvement with a change in environment. Denver sincerely hopes their new QB improves aspects of his game in his new city.
1)It's hard to draft a franchise QB. ...and there are easily identified examples of QBs changing teams and becoming good to really good. It's beneficial to try both avenues because the odds are stacked against each individually. Matt Flynn didn't win the job 10 years ago, but maybe this time ....
2)I'm thoroughly convinced that the situation changes the outcome as much as the talent level. DK's better because he was drafted late and it motivated him. RW3 as well. Sherman always showed the extra effort because he felt slighted. Jamarcus Russel (and fill in your favorite bust) didn't fail because of talent. It was motivation (and maybe some environment). If Drew Lock goes through the same process in '22 as Drew Brees in '06, he could easily be Tannehill or Cousins or Bridgewater or Bledsoe and maybe a lot better- Brees, Alex Smith, Kurt Warner (cut from Green Bay before Arena League). He could also be Sam Darnold. That (I think) depends more on Jan-Sept '22 than 2019-2021.
I hope Drew Lock reads .net I hope the posts that doubt him are motivational and I hope the posts that hold high hopes also motivate him. Sure there's doubt. I bet he doubts himself at times. But to quote someone that absolutely knows it to be true, "Why not us? Why not you?" Why not Drew Lock?
