The headline of our first post about Paxton Lynch, the Broncos' number-one draft pick this past April, reads, "Meet Paxton Lynch: Broncos' Star QB of the Future or the Next Tim Tebow?"

Yesterday, during his first start — a desultory 23-16 home loss to the Atlanta Falcons that wasn't nearly as close as the final score suggests — Lynch looked a lot more like Timmy than Peyton Manning in his prime. Far too many of his passes sailed on him or were otherwise uncatchable, and he displayed so little pocket presence that he made the Falcons defense look like the one that made the Broncos Super Bowl champions in February.

Of course, it's far too early to hit the panic button, but plenty of Broncos fans essentially did that by way of their Twitter account's "tweet" button. The resulting messages sound every bit as angry as those sent in recent weeks by boosters of the Panthers, Bengals, Colts and Buccaneers — the previous four opponents Denver dispatched leading up to Sunday's reality check.

The good news: The Broncos are back on the field Thursday against the Chargers, and a victory over the hated Philip Rivers — not to mention the anticipated return of quarterback Trevor Siemien, whose stature was definitely improved by Lynch's lousy performance — will reassure citizens of Broncos Nation that the future is still bright.
