Is the Broncos GM George Paton just John Elway 2.0? Quarterback is still problematic. So the depth. The secondary. And the offensive.

If Broncos fans think the bottom of the AFC West position is depressing, look at everyone at the top for a moment. Check out one common element.

Buffalo? Franchise quarterback. Baltimore? Franchise quarterback. Cincy-freaking-nati? Franchise quarterback. Chargers? Raiders? Franchise quarterback. Franchise quarterback.

Dallas? Green Bay? Tampa? Arizona? Los Angeles rams? Quarterback, quarterback, quarterback, quarterback, quarterback. Not a Trent Dilfer or Brad Johnson in the pack. Or a Sam Bradford.

All other? Presents. Including everyone at the UCHealth Training Center.

For Broncos general manager George Paton, the honeymoon is over. Done. Completely finished. At 3-3 after a 3-0 start, the diseases that plague the Broncos list are not that different from the ones we moaned about last Halloween.

It all feels like John Elway 2.0, right? Subpar offensive line play. Brain spasms in the secondary. A head coach throwing silly flags and an offensive coordinator whipping out pencils. A quarterback who cannot play from behind.

Yes, but you said that Teddy Bridgewater was …

Wait, wait. I said Bridgewater is the best, most capable solution if a.) Your alternative is Drew Lock; and b.) You have a defense that can win the battles he can not.

Now that Steady Teddy has no b.), Fangio’s continued employment is even more of a slap in the face to the Broncos Country.

Given a choice, would you rather have Justin Fields or Mac Jones learn the NFL ropes in the Dove Valley right now? Or Patrick Surtain II, running around in orange and blue, watching helplessly as opposing quarterbacks continue to burn their teammates?
