The Broncos are in quarterback hell

Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph would not commit to Trevor Siemian as the team's quarterback moving forward.

"Whatever helps us win football games, I'm going to do for us".

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.

Currently, veteran Brock Osweiler and 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch sit behind Siemian. Lynch was mostly mediocre when Siemian was out injured last season and has spent 2017 recovering from a preseason shoulder injury and just returned to practice last week. Among the 29 quarterbacks with at least 200 dropbacks this season, his -0.08 Passing Net Expected Points per dropback rank fourth-worst.

"That's not my job, my job is to play quarterback and play the best I can, " Siemian said when asked if he was anxious Joseph would make a change. Lynch started two games as a rookie last season and went 1-1. The Broncos, despite owning the league's No. 1 defense, have lost four of the past five to drop to 3-5.

If all three players continue to struggle, it will all but assure that the Broncos will aggressively pursue outside options at quarterback next offseason. "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". Joseph knows he has to do what is best for the football team.

It was a really bad night for the Denver Broncos.

"There's high tension", Broncos cornerback Chris Harris said.

In addition to his three interceptions, Siemian was sacked three times, giving him 25 for the season. "Obviously like most coaches would do and see but [Monday], our defense played winning football in my opinion".

At the root of Siemian's poor play, Joseph said, are a combination of him learning a new system and pressing. You can try to make flawless calls for him but he has to play his way out of bad plays and not make them worse.
