Why Judon's Twitter Shade Toward Broncos QB Drew Lock is Good a Thing

Chad Jensen

This past week, a fan on Twitter posted a four-man image that included NFL quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Deshaun Watson and, surprisingly to some, Drew Lock, with the caption: 'the future of the NFL.'

Baltimore Ravens linebacker, and teammate to Jackson, Matthew Judon took exception to the fan's tweet and offered up a commentary of his own that some in Broncos Country perceived to be disrespectful to Lock.

While it's not exactly breaking news and it's actually a few days old, Judon's shot across Lock's bow shouldn't be taken so seriously by fans. In fact, it could be nothing but good for the Denver Broncos' young quarterback. 

In the video above, I break down exactly why fans shouldn't overreact to this tweet and why it should actually be a good thing for Lock heading into year two.

To be fair, he has a point. We've seen a lot more out of Mahomes, Jackson and Watson than we have Drew Lock. I think even Lock would admit to as much.

Judon will eat his words in a year or two. Lock will outplay either Watson or Jackson ...or both...soon. (Injuries caused by “bold running” is fair game. By that I mean, if, for example, Lamar goes down after a tackle, with an ACL, and Drew keeps playing, that’s obviously “outplaying” the injured player.)

Yeah, I'm a lifelong Denver Broncos fan and a pretty big Drew Lock homer. But even I found no issue with Judon's tweet. If Lock makes a leap forward in his year two campaign the way that Mahomes and Jackson did, then we can put him in the same group as those other three.

yeah drew lock has only played like 5-6 games and he did play pretty well but i just need to see more gameplay out of him before i can put him on the same level as Mahomes etc.) but yes he should be their starter for 2020 and possibly their franchise qb for 5-10 yrs

I know.... and should I care? No! One good season doesn't mean he'll have a good career. See how that works? I wonder if the irony is lost on him?
