    I haven't seen the game. I'm relying on the impression of others, who said that Siemian seemed tentative after the interception.

      Gotcha, yeah I would watch his play first before accepting some of the opinions around here or by only looking to the stat lines. I personally think Siemian won the starting job with his performance over Sanchez. With his limited game experience, he is only going to get better and more comfortable within this offense.

      But again, take a look for yourself.

        Sanchez being Sanchez.

        He aint changing, he is who he is, a TO machine. In a perfect world we all wish he could pull a Plummer, but that isn't happening.

          I have to agree with this. Didn't get to watch live, but by following the game here it looked like TS played OK then completely fell apart after the pick. I though TS looked pretty good, especially considering his lack of experience. Still can't figure out why people are commenting on his play after the pick, only a couple plays. He looked good for the most part, and has the best ceiling for the year of all QBs.

            This is true and I believe that this is the most logical scenario and what we have to rally around if we want to have a legitimate shot this season.

              The only problem with your opinion is others "believe that the only logical scenario and player to rally around if we want to have a legitimate shot this season" could also be Sanchez or Lynch.

              Nothing is clear. Sanchez's inability to lock down this job as Elway expected when he traded for him has turned into a nightmare for Kubiak. A starter has to be named. Sadly none have truly earned it to this point.

                He basically needed to show he was capable of changing by cutting down the turnovers in the preseason, he hasn't done that. At this point, go with the best QB and through two games that's been Lynch. The other two have started a game, let him start game 3 (for at least a quarter or more) and see how he rolls with the 1's. If he looks good, start him week one, if not, roll with Trevor.
                I too wish Lynch was given a chance to start game 3 if nothing else to get him live reps against another teams first string defense. Heck maybe even expand his playbook a bit to see if he can run a play or audible into a play that he hasn't run much in a game situation. The interception at end of the game was really not a big deal. Lynch's sacks were almost unavoidable. He has played quite well in the limited offense he has been given. That is not to say TS has not played well, the interception and his recovery were a little shaky. QB's need to know they can make a 1 poor decision and not get yanked the next series.

                  Plummer didnt change though. Other than 2005, he was still a turn over machine, albeit, an exciting one. Thats why Shanahan benched him in 2006.

                    Unfortunately the Broncos need someone to protect the ball better. I'd say he knows how to drive the ball downfield, but when it counts to not let mistakes get to you, he doesn't seem to get past it like a vet should. I feel pretty bad for Sanchez, but he is who he is. We shouldn't take away opportunities for other QBs on our team if Sanchez isn't up to par.

                    Though honestly the race isn't over by any means. Each QB next game will play a third of the game, so Sanchez still has a chance to prove he can play without turning the ball over. Similarly Siemian still has a chance to lose the starting position, etc., so nothing set in stone yet.

                      This logic doesn't necessarily hold, though; while Paxton has looked good playing with the 3s and 4s, he has generally faced 3rd- and 4th string defenses as well. I'm encouraged by his progress, but there's a big difference between playing against backup defenders using vanilla schemes in the preseason, and playing against starters once coordinators unleash their playbooks after the season starts. Lynch is doing well but let's not go too far overboard in extrapolating his performance beyond what it actually has been so far.

                      That said, I do think he has earned a shot to start a game to see how he performs with and against starters.
