Denver Broncos

There’s still debate in the Mile High City whether or not Drew Lock is capable of being the team’s franchise quarterback or at least capable of getting the Broncos back to a competitive level. Denver hasn’t been to the playoffs since winning the Super Bowl in 2015 when Peyton Manning was under center. Since then the team has gone through multiple players in hopes of finding a suitable replacement, but have yet to find anyone close. Lock is 8-10 as a starter which is why the jury is still out. An interesting stat to consider: Lock was one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks when it came to play-action situations. The 2019 second-round pick by the Broncos completed nearly 70 percent of his throws with seven touchdowns and zero interceptions with a 120.5 passer rating.

Gruden feeling the heat?

“I know there is a big bull’s-eye on my chest, certainly. If the people want to use that as an incentive, then so be it. I worked for Al Davis in 1998. That was pressure. I was 34 years old.
