If Drew Lock is George Paton’s dude, Broncos need to get him extra enable. Or crack the bank for Dak Prescott or Deshaun Watson.

If it is me, I trade the farm for Deshaun Watson. Or I get the nearest hammer and crack the piggy financial institution for Dak Prescott. This is the AFC West, brother. You go massive, or you go 5-11.

But if I’m new Broncos general supervisor George Paton, and I’m certain — or coerced — that Drew Lock is my quarterback, at minimum for 2021, then I’m going Heaven and two Earths to get him assistance. A lot more help. Veteran men. Responsible men. Palms men.

Broncos enthusiasts are battling some major Josh Allen Envy these times, particularly with Buffalo a win away from the Tremendous Bowl. Allen took some time to figure it out, and his progression at quarterback, as opposed to Lock’s, has largely been linear.

But the Bills also gifted Allen some Cole Beasley, then Stefon Diggs. Veteran fellas. Dependable fellas. Arms men. If Jerry Jeudy turns into just one of individuals two, you’re extra than midway property. He’s not there but.

I get extensive receiver Courtland Sutton healthy. Then I give him a veteran bookend. Someone who can demonstrate Jeudy and KJ Hamler the ropes, also.

“It’s hard when you have got a year of no offseason, numerous accidents at (different) positions, some very poor selections as properly, and your star receiver (Sutton) does not play,” ESPN football analyst Dan Orlovsky instructed me recently. “That’s tough, appropriate? So I experience like this (was) a seriously special 12 months. To go, ‘OK, younger quarterback and (new) coordinator, you men all (stink),’ I don’t think which is the response.”

If it’s me, I’m putting in a Strategy B in that quarterback home, an off-ramp for my offensive coaches in situation No. 3 commences swerving the semi again.

“The massive issue for them is making an attempt to get Drew (tamed),” Orlovsky ongoing. “I like Drew’s aggressiveness, but there’s a difference involving recklessness and aggressiveness. Halt getting so reckless with the football. You can still be intense and not be reckless. And which is the large challenge transferring ahead.”

If it is me in that entrance business, I’d want a freer hand. I’d feel improved if John Elway weren’t hovering, like The Ghost of Quarterbacks Earlier, in excess of my shoulder, whispering in my ear.

Since the quality of the sign-callers in that position area in 6 months is heading say a large amount about the Broncos’ aspirations in 2021. Even if Plan B will involve a ton of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Andy Dalton or Nick Foles as a backup, it beats the snot out of no program at all. Or Jeff Driskel.

“I think each and every organization, or most corporations, if it is your very first go-round with these men, you have received to be a little little bit knowledge,” Orlovsky ongoing, “and go, ‘Is it really them? Or was it the situations about them?’”

We know the place this is headed, never we?
