The Denver Broncos almost pulled out a win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, but alas, it was not to be. The Broncos have been good on defense this season and poor on offense with nothing resembling good quarterback play all year. Teddy Bridgewater did not start so we saw Drew Lock start in his place. Lock is a turnover machine but can have flashes. Lock played fine in this game, but the Broncos just can’t seem to figure anything out.
Ultimately we may be looking at a new head coach in Denver – the fans are calling for it and frankly they are probably right. The team has tons of talent yet still is producing less than mediocre results. If they had a good quarterback would this team be different? Could we see a big-name free agent signing (Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson) come to Denver to finish their careers?
I just love to see the turmoil happening in Denver – the chaos is always so funny. And what makes it even better is that they are still, somehow, in the hunt for a playoff spot. Literally, everything has to go their way so it isn’t going to happen, but it does make for an interesting final two games of the season.
Sunday, they face the Chargers – both teams searching for a playoff spot. We are still waiting to see if we will see Teddy Bridgewater or Drew Lock under center. My gut tells me that the Chargers will win this one, but who even knows this season?
