What to make of Brett Rypien.
Until Drew Lock is back at quarterback for the Denver Broncos, and the team plays again, that will be the “hot” topic.
On Friday’s Broncos Country Tonight, Ryan Edwards and Benjamin Allbright had that very conversation with KOA’s Brandon Krisztal.
The question Ryan asked Brandon: Are the mistakes, namely the interceptions, correctable by the time Rypien plays again when Denver faces the New England Patriots? That’s assuming Rypien gets the start, which is what it is looking like.
“Well, two things, they’re going to have to be,” Krisztal told the guys. “Because Bill Belichick is certainly going to try to fool him with what they’re going to do in next weekend in New England. Second, yeah. The first one, I think it’s going to bother him the most in most ways because he was just trying to get rid of the ball. Then the pick-six, what I liked is that we saw him correct that mistake in game on the pass to Tim Patrick.
“And he talked about how (the New York Jets) tried to play that cover-2 trap and bait him and he saw it that time and made them pay with that strike down the left sideline. If that throw’s maybe even a little more inside, maybe Tim Patrick walks into the end zone. You always want to see someone correct their mistakes, but to be able to do it in game I thought says a lot about who Brett Rypien is.”
MHR’s Adam Malnati joined the guys to talk about the win over the Jets and whether that will give the Broncos confidence heading into New England.
