A look at Drew Lock, Denver Broncos quarterback (Missouri video reviews) alvin April 27, 2019 - 1:42pm

I watched three of Drew Lock’s games on YouTube, not just the “highlights” but every pass-related snap he took in 2018 games against South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama.

Gary Kubiak quotes about Case Keenum

A few quotes from Gary Kubiak about new Broncos QB Case Keenum, from this Houston Chronicle article:

The reason he’s where he is, first and foremost, is his work ethic. He wants to be great. His presence among his teammates is as good as I’ve ever seen. He never judges people or acts like he’s above them. He treats everybody the same, and guys want to make plays for him.

Case played well (in his rookie year), but we couldn’t win a close game. One thing I learned about Case is that he’s such a mentally strong person. He can handle any type of locker room and any kind of teammate. He’s very consistent on and off the field. His teammates respect that.

A lot of guys would just go in the tank with a start like that (0-8), but Case kept battling because that’s the kind of guy he is. He’s very comfortable in his own skin.

I don’t care who he plays for, you’re not going to put Case in an uncomfortable situation. He’s got a lot of confidence in who he is and how he carries himself. Guys respond to that.

Teaching: “Eventually they’ll just see my mouth moving”

This is a good quote on teaching, from this espn.com page:

“One thing that we’ve learned as coaches: we’re teachers,” O’Brien said. “He’s the quarterback. If I’m just talking to him, eventually they’ll just see my mouth moving. Blah blah blah. We want them to get up there and actually do it.”
