Vance Joseph on Broncos QB trouble: "Right now, everything is being explored"

Vance Joseph on Broncos QB trouble:

With their season at a crossroads, the Denver Broncos have opted to stick with embattled starting quarterback Trevor Siemian for the time being, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

"As coaches, we can make his life a little easier by taking some of the variables away from him and not giving him so much", Joseph said. We ran the ball for 177 [yards] and the pass [protection] was better, but it all falls back to turning the ball over five times. "It all fell back to turning the ball over five times, that's insane". Brock Osweiler. Joseph said Paxton Lynch, the team's first-round pick in 2016, "won't be in the mix" to start Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Denver's dominant defense is playing even better than the unit that led the Broncos to the Super Bowl 50 title two years ago.

Denver (3-4) has now lost three straight, scoring just 29 points during the skid.

Despite the trouble, the Broncos closed to within 20-13 at the end of the third quarter, but Siemian threw his third interception with 6 minutes, 23 seconds remaining in the game. 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. The Broncos are now ranked No. 19, a big drop from their No. 4 ranking earlier this season.

Asked whether Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has protected Siemian well enough recently, Joseph said: "I think he has, but I've said all along we can coach and play better". "But losing three games in a row and having five turnovers tonight, anything's possible".

The next question is, who would replace Siemian? It's just up to Joseph to have the guts to make the change, even with a lack of great options to go to. You can try to make ideal calls for him but he has to play his way out of bad plays and not make them worse.
