Thanks for keeping us all going throughout another crap season fellas. You make being a fan of a bad football team not as painful. I think we should all be very thankful that the NFL was able to get this full season in. Just think if they only got 14, 12, or even less games in and we didn’t get the experience and growth for our young team. We had optimism for this season but realistically this wasn’t going to be a team that was a true contender yet. Hopefully we look back at this season as a necessary step in the process – one that needed to happen and couldn’t be skipped.
As far as the most important thing for this season, it is too bad that we don’t have that definitive answer on Drew that everyone wanted. I will say that he is trending up and showed some clear growth and development over the last 5 weeks of the season. That is encouraging because it shows me that Drew wants this very bad, is a smart player, and is a humble player. He wants to be a gunslinger but realized midway through the season that he needed to change or he wasn’t going to be the quarterback in Denver. I love that he saw where he needed to improve and was able to make the necessary adjustments in his game to allow him to develop as an NFL QB. I’d rather have a talented guy that has to learn how to play more efficiently than a guy that is already efficient but only has average talent. If Drew can ingrain this efficiency in his game as his “normal” and be comfortable in it, THEN it is the right time for him to let that gunslinger come out when it is needed. Not the other way around. Right now you can tell he is super focused on playing safe, but I think he we will see more of the WOW plays as he progresses.
Bottom line – DREW IS DEVELOPING!!
