And so, Broncos Country, we remain in a holding pattern. Vic Fangio and the Denver Broncos have yet to decide between Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater. The starting quarterback will be chosen, but how much longer will we have to wait?
As Ian St. Clair and I discussed on the MHR Radio Podcast, this process has become tedious and boring. Of course, it has to happen. Fangio, OC Pat Shurmur, and GM George Paton will eventually land on one of the two, but not before the Bronco play the Los Angeles Rams in their final preseason game.
Don’t take our boredom for disinterest. It’s not indifference. I care. I want the Broncos to pick the player that gives the team the best chance to win. I want to write about winning football. Not five or six times in 2021, but into the playoffs. I want to wake up on Sunday and know the Broncos are going to win.
And I don’t want to see that stupid carousel graphic during games anymore. I want the carousel to breakdown, and one of the QB’s to emerge. The issue seems to be that neither one of the Broncos QBs have created separation in this battle.
We have heard the same discussion ever since Bridgewater joined the Broncos. Lock is the higher ceiling, and Teddy is the higher floor. Drew will make the splash plays. Bridgewater will bring consistency.
Fans have made their preference known. But even in Broncos Country the lingering indecisiveness has fans making a plea for a choice. Just pick a guy. I will root for whoever. And we will. We all will. In the end, we all want the same thing. We want to wake up on Sunday and believe, deep down in our Orange and Blue blood pumping hearts that the Broncos are going to win that day.
So, whoever Fangio et al. chooses matters.
