I got all excited today, when I realized that fans can attend Denver Broncos training camp in just 20 days!
Then I remembered that the Green Bay Packers are mending fences with Aaron Rodgers, so it looks like we will be watching a Drew Lock versus Teddy Bridgewater competition.
That should result in a combined 3 for 47 third down conversions, zero touchdowns, and 14 turnovers.
By the way, 13 of those turnovers will be Lock fumbles.
I know that the narrative among those with the orange and blue tinted glasses, is that Lock is going to eventually show his true colors, and be a top notch NFL quarterback.
I just don’t have any reason to think that is going to happen.
Going back in NFL history, there have been numerous young quarterbacks that made a ton of mistakes early in their careers, but they did also show flashes of greatness.
Point to the game, series, or even singular play where we have seen anything resembling a flash of greatness from Drew Lock.
You’d have better luck finding video evidence of the Denver Nuggets greatest NBA Finals moments.
I do think the Denver defense can at least make them competitive at times, but below average quarterback play will be tough to overcome, and is this team truly stout in the trenches?
I have my doubts.
Speaking of those Denver Nuggets, please keep in mind that Jrue Holiday was available back in November, but the Nuggets didn’t want to spend that much money.
The Milwaukee Bucks did, and we all know what they did this year.
I realize that no one could have predicted the Jamal Murray injury, but we all could have predicted that the Nuggets would need a perimeter defender in the playoffs.
Their inability to limit anything Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul was doing in the postseason was their demise.
Holiday would have changed that.
But at least they saved a few bucks, right?
Hey, but at least the Colorado Rockies are no longer in last place, right?
Surely after giving away Nolan Arenado, the worst for that franchise is now behind us, and the rebuilding can begin.
Except that I fully expect the Rox to eat some more money, and give players like Jon Gray and Trevor Story away, later this week at the trade deadline.
And don’t think Charlie Blackmon or German Marquez are untouchable.
These are the results of living under horrible ownership.
Between the Bowlen Trust, the Kroenke’s, and the Montfort’s the Mile High City is getting this bad ownership thing down pat.
Mile High mediocrity, baby.
