Is Paxton Lynch a bust? Some already say yes.

Denver Broncos fans have had enough of Paxton Lynch and took to twitter to voice their disdain for the rookie first rounder.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

With Paxton Lynch’s very poor performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars 3rd ranked pass defense, many Denver Broncos fans were relieved to finally be proven right in their assessment of Lynch.

It begs the question, are they right?

John Elway expended major draft capital to draft the guy in the first round, but after two and a half starts is he a two year project or a three year project or a never project?

Personally, I think the anti-Lynch attitudes are every bit as strong as the anti-Siemian ones and fans are just prone to kneejerk gloating when they feel vindicated. Lynch isn’t ready, but I did see glimpses of what he could be in today’s game. Those were not shared by the loudest of the critics out there right now.

There is no question when it comes to which quarterback the Broncos must roll with into the playoffs, though. Trevor Siemian or bust for the Broncos in 2016 ... and maybe beyond.

Here are some of the reactions from Broncos fans on social media to Lynch’s “win” over the Jaguars.
