Be boring. If you want to emulate a Smith, Drew Lock, that’s groovy. A little more Alex Smith and a little less Geno Smith this time.

“I honestly feel like I could play quarterback for the Denver Broncos this year,” linebacker Von Miller said Tuesday. “We’ve got too many options.”

Be smart. Let the skill guys do the heavy lifting. We know you’ve got a cannon, brother. We’re just weary of having to cover our eyes every time you light the fuse.

Jerry Jeudy’s job is to blow people’s minds as a receiver. Your job is to get the rock in his mitts and get out of the heck out of the way.

Because the safest hands are going to be the ones that coach Vic Fangio ultimately trusts with the keys. The Broncos have two Pro Bowl pass-rushers and a half-dozen defensive backs who can ball. Punt to win, baby.

“We’ve got more weapons than we’ve had in a long time,” Miller continued. “I can go out there and lead that offense … I can go out there and play quarterback and throw it to Jerry Jeudy … We’ve got all types of weapons out there.”

Find them. Because if you can’t, Teddy Bridgewater sure as heck will.

Be savvy. Check down. Move the chains. Shock the world. Prove us wrong. Make the doubters eat their words like so many sopapillas. Crow with a side of honey.

VegasInsider.com pegs the Broncos’ over-under on wins this fall at 7.5, same as the Raiders and Panthers. FanDuel set it at 8.5 victories. PointsBet, same deal.

On one hand, it’s a low bar to clear.

On the other, reality bites.

Training camp opens Wednesday, and Aaron Rodgers ain’t walking through that door. Not this summer, anyway.

“We have our pulse on every situation, especially if it’s a player we covet,” Broncos general manager George Paton said of the Packers quarterback. “But in regards to Rodgers specifically, he’s with another team, and I can’t comment any further.”

And if the recent headlines involving Deshaun Watson make you more than a little wary, well, you’re not alone.

“I can’t comment on a player under contract with another team,” Broncos president/CEO Joe Ellis said of the embattled Texans quarterback.  “That really isn’t a consideration on the table right now.”

So we’re right back to where we were two months ago. Teddy vs. Drew. Drew vs. Teddy. May the prudent man win.

“(We’re) very confident in both quarterbacks,” Paton said.

“I think you can win with both those guys,” Miller said.

Fangio is 12-20 over his first two seasons at Dove Valley. He’s 7-9 at home. He’s 0-7 in September. The Broncos’ first three tilts are at the Giants (6-10 in 2020), at the Jaguars (1-15) and a home tussle with the Jets (2-14).

You might have time to wait around for Lock’s corner to turn. Uncle Vic doesn’t.

“We want to be relevant in November and December,” Paton said. “We want to make a push for the playoffs.”

You can push with Lock and Bridgewater. It’s when their heads start scraping the ceiling at nine or 10 wins — and 10-7 doesn’t promise a thing — that things get dicey.

Is that good enough? The only thing looming with any certainty at Dove Valley for 2022 is change.

Ellis stressed again on Tuesday that he doesn’t expect to be in the CEO’s chair by the start of the next training camp. The Broncos are either going to be sold or transitioned into Brittany Bowlen’s purview, and the smart money is still on the former.

Bridgewater, Miller, Kyle Fuller, Melvin Gordon, Bryce Callahan, Kareem Jackson, Tim Patrick, A.J. Johnson and Courtland Sutton are all in the final year of their respective contracts.

Rodgers is a solid bet to hit the open market after this season. Watson’s legal situation will likely have more clarity, for better or for worse, by next spring. Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler and North Carolina signal-caller Sam Howell are expected to jump into the draft pool.

You want to talk options? That’s the one thing that, in a few months, the Broncos will have plenty of. Especially at quarterback.

“We’ve got to win. We just have to win,” Ellis said. “It’s kind of, ‘Enough already’ for me, personally, watching it.”

Join the club, pal. Join the club.
