Jerry Jeudy: Competition is making Teddy Bridgewater, Drew Lock better

USA TODAY Sports

Teddy Bridgewater might start the season opener for the Broncos. Or might it be Drew Lock? Or maybe a different veteran quarterback?

For now, Bridgewater and Lock are competing for the job. Barring a trade for a Deshaun Watson or an Aaron Rodgers, the Broncos will go into the season with either Lock or Bridgewater as the starting quarterback.

Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said last week both quarterbacks were improving.

Receiver Jerry Jeudy agreed when asked about the quarterbacks’ differences during an appearance on The Jim Rome Show on Thursday.

“Drew is more of a bullet-type thrower. He relies a lot more on his arm,” Jeudy told Rome. “Teddy, I feel he more anticipates and throws it and knows how to anticipate on your routes. That’s the only difference I see between them. But I feel like they’re two great quarterbacks who are out here competing. Having them compete against each other, you can see both of them are improving in their game.”

  1. Teddy is on his 4th team i think? and Drew Lock was so bad that the Broncos think a journeyman QB might be better than him.

    I can’t wait for the regular season and the end of these puff pieces. Everyone is great in June.

    That’s an oversimplification of reality. Vikings dropped Teddy because they believed his knee ended his career, Jets traded him because they didn’t want him to make their #3 pick QB look bad, and the Saints let him walk because they re-signed Drew Brees. And the Panthers are just plain dumb.

  3. Lock has been hurt on and off, the Broncos did not have anyone behind him. Good pick up for the Broncos as a back up. Drew Lock will start.

  4. The only difference is one throws hard (the other not so much), while the slower thrower throws with anticipation (the other not so much). Jerry, Jerry, Jerry, this is not a good thing.

  5. Why do they need competition to make them better? Are they playing against each other? Practice your craft and you will get better, maybe.

  6. Listen up Lock haters. Did you watch the games? If you would have, you would have noticed that the right side of his line had more holes than paper target at the shooting range. Next, did you know his number one WR went out for the season? Next did you notice the rookie superstar dropped as many passes as he caught? Football is a team game Lock cannot singlehandedly win games.

    But the real question is are you getting better, a 46% catch rate(52 for 113) and 3TD’s isn’t even close to being par for where you were drafted, maybe you need some competition!
