  • Teddy Bridgewater vs. Drew Lock - who've you got?

    Back in the days where I could throw a football over them mountains, my knuckleheaded friends and I would often present scenarios in which you had to choose between two or more bad options (I believe this is called a "Morton's Fork"). These discussions almost always occurred late at night, and were intended to conjure up disgusting images. For the record, none of us turned out to be rocket scientists.

    For reasons I can't remember, one of us, at some point, started adding in a last choice: "or have sex with Don Knotts." So, it might be, "You have to choose: cut off your penis with a dull, rusty knife; poke yourself in both eyes with a rusty fork; or have sex with Don Knotts." Yeah, in retrospect, it seems stupid to me, too.

    Anyway, this poll is like that. Only, if I remember correctly, Don Knotts died years ago. And based on everything I've heard about him, he was a nice man. I doubt he would have wanted to have sex with any of us.

    We'll make the poll anonymous, so no one has to feel ashamed of the choice they make. And we'll end it before kickoff of the week twelve Chargers game.
    24
    Teddy "Business Decision" Bridgewater
    12.50%
    3
    Drew "Buzz Pickyear" Lock
    87.50%
    21

    The poll is expired.

    First and foremost, I don’t like either of them. So FU very much for your masochism, Dom. After the Philly game, I had to vote for Lock. I don’t want a starting quarterback on my team that plays like a pussy.

      Just curious, but would you have voted Don Knotts, had I included it?

      In one play, Teddy Bridgewater became dead to me. I have never loved him. But I got behind him. The fumble return was despicable. The throw into the stands on the last 4th down cemented it for me. Good luck in the future, Teddy. I'm sure he will have a nice, long career as someone's backup. I just don't want it to be here.

        I am hetero, Dom. I would rather suffer through this season with any quarterback than get corn holed by Barney Fife.

        I agree with essentially everything you wrote in your second paragraph. That one play shows everything you need to know about TBW.

          It should have been Lock from Day 1. You give the kid a chance to grow to see if you have anything that resembles a starting QB. Maybe he takes the next step, maybe not. Worst case? We lose games with Lock that we would have lost with TBW anyways.

          Offseason cannot come quick enough. Fangio is worse than VJ and only slightly better than McDaniels.

            Neither one and not Barney Fife. All 3, we wouldn't feel any different than we do now. I've seen enough of TB and Lock.

              Bridgewater and Lock are two bad options, however one option is worse than the other. And that's Lock. As much as I want to see a different QB than Bridgewater, replacing him with a worse QB is not a smart thing to do. Unless folks would just like to lose more and in a different manner. The Broncos already made a decision on Lock, and that's to pull the plug on him. Why go back to something that they already know sucks? Whatever they do with these last seven games, hopefully neither of these QBs are on the roster next year. And hopefully they clean house with the coaching staff too.

                We really don't know how much lock has improved since last year. He was decent in the preseason. He only got in a regular season game after he had gone more then a month with limited backup reps in practice. This is why broncos should put him in now, no point in going 7-10 or 8-9 with Teddy.

                  Nah, the Broncos know where he's at. They saw him everyday last year and they've seen him everyday this year. A lot of folks keep talking about this improvement, but it doesn't appear that he improved much. If he did, he probably would have been given the starting job. Preseason games are nearly worthless in terms of evaluation because most teams don't play their starters and they don't game plan for those games. There's actually more competition in training camp practice and most of the reports said that both QBs were struggling on a daily basis. And the whole thing about Lock struggling in the Ravens game because of a lack of reps just doesn't work because many backup QBs come into games and play well. A lot of times it's because the opposing team didn't game plan for them.

                  Lock just isn't a good QB and it appears that the Broncos have turned the page on him. The likelihood of him becoming a franchise QB is very slim.

                    I said 'We' don't know if Lock has gotten better because we haven't seen him on TV in a regular game where he has been adequately prepared. We just have to trust Vic, who does not want to play lock because he wants a dink and dunk QB that if everything goes perfectly will let his defense win the game.

                      I will take a lesser player that actually gives a shit over a better player that clearly does not. I guess we don't know how much Lock cares right now. But we know exactly how little Teddy does.

                        You should have included a choice to have Don Knotts at QB....how much worse could it be? He might at least make an effort to tackle when he throws pics

                          I can’t believe we’re going to trot TBW out as a starter after he made a choice not to make a play. The more I watch it, the more I can’t believe it.

                          this IS the lowest of the low for this organization.

                          dont care which QB starts, this organization sucks

                                    Yes I'm not a big Boo fan of your home team but **** TB. That guy quit on us and you could tell in his presser he could careless. **** that guy.

                                      It’s ****ing infuriating that the Broncos accept that. Pisses me off!

                                        Someone should make Teddy, MacMahon, Shurmer, and Fangio pinatas.
                                        they'd sell out.
                                        I'd love to beat the snot out of each one of those pinatas...

                                        (truth would dictate filling them with shit though...)

                                          Things have gotten so bad, I'm worried that we'll look like a Chargers home game next Sunday.

                                            Was halfway there last Sunday.

                                            Pitiful.

                                              That's what our home games usually look like.
