Drew Lock was on the sidelines all game long and yet found himself being roasted by a former player.
ESPN analyst Ryan Clark completely eviscerated Seahawks backup quarterback Drew Lock after Seattle’s 17-16 win against the Broncos on “Monday Night Football.”
During an appearance on “SportsCenter,” the former Pro-Bowl safety threw massive shade at Lock while making his case that Geno Smith should stay the team’s starting quarterback.
“Here’s what’s very important about this play,” Clark said, while highlighting Lock standing on the sidelines. “I want you all to look at this guy right here. That guy is Drew Lock. As long as Drew Lock is standing in that place [on the sidelines], because Geno Smith is playing very well, that’s the best case scenario for the Seattle Seahawks.”
Even Scott Van Pelt chimed in and asked, “How are you gonna do him that dirty? Come on, now.”
Clark replied, “I’m just saying, he’s doing a good job doing what he needs to be doing.”
Lock, a second-round pick by Denver in 2019, was limited in the preseason due to a bout with COVID-19.
Lock knows all about catching random strays as the official U.S. Open Tennis account took offense to a comment and replied “not a sport says the person about to watch 17 games of Drew Lock at QB.”
Lock was drafted by the Broncos in the second round of the 2019 NFL draft.
In 2020, Lock got an opportunity to be the starting quarterback, but he struggled with 15 interceptions, which was tied for the most in the NFL. In addition, he fumbled eight times.
Last season, Lock appeared in six games and made three starts. He recorded 787 passing yards, four total touchdowns, two interceptions, and two fumbles.
