The Broncos trustworthy have to be wistfully remembering the times of Peyton Manning’s noodle-armed passes.
The staff finds itself with no clear reply at quarterback following one other Trevor Siemian debacle Monday night time, when he threw three interceptions in a 29-19 loss to the Chiefs.
“Properly I’m going to observe the movie [Tuesday],” Broncos coach Vance Joseph stated after the loss. “Clearly like most coaches would do and see however [Monday], our protection performed profitable soccer for my part. Our offensive line blocked. We ran the ball for 177 [yards] and the cross [protection] was higher, nevertheless it all falls again to turning the ball over 5 occasions.
“That’s insane. You’ll be able to’t win turning the ball over 5 occasions. Guys work too onerous together with coaches and gamers to have an enormous recreation and provides it away 5 occasions. It’s thoughts boggling.”
The issue for Joseph and the Broncos is the depth chart is unsettled behind Siemian. The Broncos introduced again Brock Osweiler after he was launched by the Browns, however the whole lot he has finished since leaving Denver suggests he has no enterprise being a beginning quarterback.
ESPN.com reported that second-yr Paxton Lynch would get the nod if the Broncos determine to bench Siemian. Lynch was a primary-spherical decide in 2016 after a prolific profession at Memphis. Lynch was principally mediocre when Siemian was out injured final season and has spent 2017 recovering from a preseason shoulder damage and simply returned to apply final week.
The Broncos (three-four) have a protection and operating recreation which might be able to reaching the playoffs. That may imply nothing until they clear up their quarterback state of affairs.
