Climbing the Broncos' depth chart a big challenge for Brandstater

15

Legwold responds to a reader wondering why we haven't heard more about Brandstater. Some highlights: "As far as ever becoming a starter, that will likely hinge on his ability to shorten the time between when he sees something on the field in terms of coverages, etc., and when he can process that and release the ball. . . . Guys become starters when they can make the decisions and get the ball out. . . . Some players simply take too long to see it, process it and let go of the ball. The hesitation costs them what little open space there is on the field to make a play . . . If he speeds up his decisions, that that will give him the best chance to play. But that's true for many young quarterbacks." I've previously discussed "information processing speed" as one of the most important factors that determines whether or not a player is successful in the NFL.
