Broncos Considering Starting Paxton Lynch Over Trevor Siemian

If Vance Joseph won't bench Siemian lost season will be on him

After a three-interception performance against the Kansas City Chiefs, Broncos head coach Vance Joseph was non-committal on having Siemian starting next week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

"Well I am going to watch the film [Tuesday]", Broncos coach Vance Joseph said after the loss.

When asked if he would stick with Siemian, Joseph side-stepped the question by saying he would evaluate the position after looking at the game tape.

Siemian knows he has to play better and would understand if he was benched in favour of either Brock Osweiler or second-year quarterback Paxton Lynch. He started two games for the Broncos last season and played in three, throwing for 497 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception completing just 59.0 percent of his passes. Among the 29 quarterbacks with at least 200 dropbacks this season, his -0.08 Passing Net Expected Points per dropback rank fourth-worst.

The problem for Joseph and the Broncos is the depth chart is unsettled behind Siemian. Siemian threw three interceptions on the night.




"I just turned it over, couple of bad decisions, tough to win, tough to beat good teams when you turn it over, " Siemian said after Monday's loss to the Chiefs. His injury could be why the Broncos have stuck with Trevor Siemian this long, and Denver may just be waiting for Lynch to get fully healthy before making a switch. "It's fair to say, right now, everything is being discussed".

Broncos president of football operations/general manager John Elway said Osweiler could undergo "football rehab" with the Broncos. "Obviously like most coaches would do and see but [Monday], our defense played winning football in my opinion". Lynch was a first-round pick in 2016 after a prolific career at Memphis.

"At the end of the day it's about results", declared Joseph.

One he might not have much longer.
