The Denver Broncos won a Super Bowl though chosen quarterback play in 2015, though 2016 valid that lightning was doubtful to strike twice in that regard. Regular starter Trevor Siemian posted a common passer rating of 84.6, and rookie Paxton Lynch didn’t do anything in singular movement to prove he’s prepared to take a reins.
The Broncos, who had a league’s best DVOA (defense-adjusted value over average) on invulnerability final season, are in win-now mode. They can’t means to wait for Siemian and/or Lynch to emerge, and there’s a possibility conjunction will.
They’d have been improved off bringing in Jay Cutler.
The Chicago Bears expelled a 11-year maestro Mar 9 after an injury-plagued eighth deteriorate with a team, though only one year ago, he was entrance off a highest-rated debate of his NFL career. Seemingly in his primary in 2015, Cutler was a top-10 quarterback in terms of DYAR (defense-adjusted yards above replacement) and DVOA at Football Outsiders.
He still wasn’t a superstar, though only eight qualified passers had aloft yards-per-attempt averages. According to Pro Football Focus, he had a league’s 12th-highest passer rating when throwing deep and was a NFL’s sixth-highest-rated passer under pressure.
It would have been good to see Cutler lapse to Denver, where it all started for him over a decade ago. But Broncos ubiquitous manager John Elway seems satisfied with Siemian and Lynch, that competence be a large reason because both Cutler and Tony Romo retired.
