The Broncos got better quarterback play in 2021, but I wonder if it is enough of a step forward.
In todays’ lead-off article, David Carr postulates about teams that don’t have their starting quarterback on their roster which is a subject that Broncos Country hold near and dear to their hearts.
The first takeaway I have is that I agree with Carr. While I’ve lauded the play of Teddy Bridgewater all season (and pined for him through the offseason to be named the starter), he’s not the guy that is a long-term solution for the team. That doesn’t mean he can’t start for us in 2022, but the hope would be that the Broncos find something better, and maybe he can take a backup role (if he’s open to it…if not there are teams who will gladly start him elsewhere).
The second thought I have is that if the Broncos go into the offseason looking to get one of the big-name QBs to come here, they have stiff competition from Pittsburgh and New Orleans. Those destinations look far better to me than Denver as it stands today.
What are your thoughts? Hit up the comments and the poll and let us know whether the start is here already for 2022 or not.
