Head coach Vic Fangio was asked what he hoped to see from Lock this week and he talked a lot about taking advantage of the first team reps and hoping to see that help with accuracy in the game on Sunday.
“I hope after a week full of practice he’ll be much more comfortable and much more efficient in the whole operation,” Fangio said on Monday. “His accuracy will be better—everything will be better.”
I’ve been very critical of Lock this year. Probably more so due to a rabid group of fans that wholeheartedly believe he is the answer to the franchise quarterback question than due to Lock’s actual play this season. He had a lot of chances in 2020 to prove he could play in this league and he didn’t capitalize enough to convince me. So for me, that makes this opportunity his biggest - and last - chance to change doubters minds in Denver. The Raiders have a lot of issues on defense, so its a perfect opportunity for Lock to come out and gain some confidence as a starter again.
