The Broncos are in quarterback hell

The team finds itself without a clear answer at quarterback following another Trevor Siemian debacle Monday night, when he threw three interceptions in a 29-19 loss to the Chiefs.

Trevor Siemian is struggling, especially on the road. Joseph knows he has to do what is best for the football team. "It's unfair to your team if you're not discussing that position".

Broncos backup quarterback Brock Osweiler has played in just two games this season. The Broncos, despite owning the league's No. 1 defense, have lost four of the past five to drop to 3-5. "At the end of the day, I'm going to do what's best for the team". That will mean nothing unless they solve their quarterback situation. "I don't blame guys for being upset because again, this football team has worked hard and guys worked hard last night to win the football game and it didn't happen". The Broncos might as well see if he was worth the first-round pick. But after he threw 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions as the Texans' starter in 2016, he was traded to the Browns; the Browns then released him during the preseason.


Joseph, who was hired in part to restore locker room harmony, has been adamant that no one's pointing fingers, but cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said after the latest game there's definitely some friction. Elway said during a Tuesday appearance on the Broncos' partner radio station that the team would "be fine" if Osweiler were named the starter.

Joseph insisted last summer that injury was the only way Siemian could lose his starting job, but circumstances have changed. "That's why it's my job to find an option where we will go win football games". "It's a new system that he's inherited with Mike McCoy here, so his inconsistencies have come just by him pressing, trying to make big plays". Those numbers alone make Siemian "benchable", but what's more alarmingly, is the fact that the Broncos have gone just 1-4 in during that time.
