Kiszla: The Broncos’ No. 1 problem is No. 13. Trevor Siemian is not the answer at quarterback.
After being humiliated by the Little Giants, the Broncos have big problems. And problem No. 1 is No. 13 in a Denver uniform. Can we please end this charade? Trevor Siemian is smart, brave, courteous and a good Boy Scout, but he is not the right answer at starting quarterback, if the Broncos want to be a serious championship contender.
After losing 23-10 to New York, Siemian blamed himself for the most stunning and embarrassing defeat suffered by the Broncos since they were blown out by Seattle in Super Bowl XLVIII.
“We hurt ourselves. We didn’t score in the red zone. I turned it over. It’s tough to win that way. You’re already playing a good team, you can’t play against yourself, as well,” Siemian said Sunday.
Everything Siemian mentioned was absolutely true, except that part about the Giants being anything except a big hot mess. How did the Broncos not only lose, but get trounced at home by a winless NFL team.
And where did Denver’s identity go? A stout run defense got crumpled like a can of Orange Crush under New York’s feet. For nearly a month now, the offensive game plan has been revolting. Nothing is certain for a team whose record dropped to 3-2. And everybody’s a suspect.
Where do the Broncos go from here? Everything we thought we knew about this team has been tossed a mile high in the air. Continue…
oh man, last night’s game was really hard to watch.
as a life long broncos fan, that was just rough.
i’m not even sure what to say or where to start… but personally, i’m leaning towards just putting Lynch in there and see if he improves over the rest of the season… and then they can take stock of what they have, their options, etc… and if both are shit, then say fuck it and go all out for Eli, Rivers, or Brees — to name a few.
