The one thing I’m looking forward to the most this next season is an offense that doesn’t suck.
That’s where the bar is set, ladies and gentlemen.
Just give me average and I’m a happy fan.
That being said, it is hard not to be excited when you read reports about Lock working on his own to virtually learn the new systems and take advantage of all the weapons that have been arrayed around him.
The maddening thing for me over the past six or so years has been watching a Broncos offense that wasn’t just limited, but inept.
Manning minds up with every ounce of torque his aging body has left in it and by a small miracle completes a 15-yard pass to the outside.
Trevor Siemian quickly and efficiently hits a flat out to a tight end for a whopping three yards on 3rd and 8.
Paxton Lynch doesn’t do jack squat because what happens in real life isn’t what he usually sees on the X-Box.
Joe Flacco can make every throw...but he just doesn’t because the guy “wasn’t open” enough.
Coordinator after coordinator comes and goes year in and year out (let me remind you this trend has yet to stop) and the Broncos offense languishes.
I’m excited by the possibilities this season though. Reading the latest report from Jeff Legwold below has Lock excited about the vertical passing game that Pat Shurmur’s offense is bringing to Broncos Country.
I really do hope to see an efficient and dangerous offense in Broncos Country again. One that uses both the run and the pass in efforts to put points on the board instead of looking to make the most high percentage completion play week after week.
And the key is Drew Lock. If he’s really digging in and getting work done, that’s the best medicine this ailing offense can get. We’ve lacked a quarterback that can put it all together for years now and Bronco fans everywhere are ready for a new, real option to cheer for at quarterback.
Hopefully there will be some semblance of training camp and we’ll get to see if Lock can walk the walk. Then we’ll also see what the skill players have been doing with their off season...
