Odom noted that when Missouri fell to 4-4 last season after a gut wrenching loss on the last play of the game for that fourth loss, Lock rallied the team to win out to finish 8-4. It was just the 17th time in school history where they won eight games in a season. After noting Lock had three different coordinators in four years Derek Wolfe Jersey , Odom went on to say that Lock has shown the ability to grow from relying only on arm talent to improving his game in all areas each year in college. He would expect Lock to do the same as a back up to Joe Flacco. Odom believes Lock’s versatility of having played under multiple schemes in his four years in college will allow him to adapt quickly to the NFL. Wrapping things up, Odom talked about Lock being an outstanding leader of his football team. The perception that he wasn’t a vocal leader in college would appear to be a bit overblown. That was hard to watch. The field was inhorrible shape. The Broncos, by and large, were disinterested. The game was a foregone conclusion. The Broncos have now lost to three teams this season who, most likely, will be drafting before us in 2019. Let that sink in. The Jets (4-11) have to play at New England so there is a 95% chance they finish 4-12. The 49ers (4-11) have to play at the Rams - which is likely a loss and the Raiders (4-11) have to play at Kansas City. Barring a minor miracle, they will all finish at 4-12. I don’t feel like researching that, but I’d wager that it doesn’t happen often (if at all) that a team with a losing record loses to three teams in the same season who all finish worse than they do. The first down run defense was pretty good again this game. The Faiders ran for 42 yards on13 first down carries (4.0 ypc). Only one carry went for more than 10 (11 yards) and we had four stops for no gain on first down runs. While the first down run D was stout, the defense on third and long was ok. The Faiders had six 3rd & long situations and they converted on two of them. For the season the Broncos have now allowed conversion on 33 of 109 3rd and long situations - 30.3% which is 22nd in the league.
