A Drew Lock trade idea and some reminder of hate

Let's start with the hate part first. Long-time NFL coach Vic Fangio is a fantastic defensive coordiantor. But he isn't a good head coach. He's one of those people who knows a lot about one subject - in Fangio's case, teaching defensive players how to be a good group - but doesn't seem capable of being solid as the lead guy of a team and handling all the mess that can come with it.

Fangio was the head coach of the Denver Broncos from 2019 through 2021 and his teams went a combined 19-30. Not good. Fangio had a losing record every year. During Fangio's time in Denver, current Seahawks backup QB Drew Lock was playing for Denver. Lock wasn't overly good there, but he had horrible offensive coaching and no real weapons to work with. But Fangio memorably blamed some of what was happening in Denver on Lock.

Note to the kids out there, if you ever get to be a head coach somewhere, try not to throw your players under the proverbial bus. And for some reason (here is looking at you, Sean Payton) publicly criticizing your players seems to be a trend in Denver.

Speaking of Drew Lock, he has looked pretty good in the last two preseasons. He hasn't played during the regular season, however, as starting quarterback Geno Smith has been really good. But as bad as the New York Jets quarterback situation is currently, one might wonder if New York would offer a trade for Lock.

What would it take to get Lock, though? That might depend on if the Seahawks truly see him as a potential heir for Smith's job. Otherwise, a second-or-third round pick? That might make sense.
