Trevor Siemian trying to keep same mentality as last summer

Coach Vance Joseph made it clear at the end of the team’s offseason program that no “true evaluation” of Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch would begin until the team was at training camp, but that hasn’t halted chatter about the team’s quarterbacks.

We’ve heard from inside and outside the team about Lynch’s improvement and we’ve heard wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders say that he’d like a quick call so that the first team can build chemistry with the starting quarterback. Siemian said Friday that it has been “relatively easy” to ignore such talk and focus on his play, which is something he said he did last summer when he wound up beating out Mark Sanchez for the starting job over the summer.

“That was really the first time I got a good bit of reps so that was important for me and I wasn’t getting too far ahead of myself and I’m still trying to keep that same mentality,” Siemian said, via the Denver Post. “It’s not up to me. For me, just staying with that same mentality — I want to be better than I was yesterday — I think that will help me out.”

A plan to hold workouts with both quarterbacks and the team’s receivers in Los Angeles ahead of camp fell through, but Siemian said that he hopes to hold some informal sessions at a Denver-area high school in the coming days as part of his effort to go 2-for-2 in quarterback competitions.

  1. Watching him play was like that feeling you get when you are losing in Madden to your friend after the first quarter and you know youre probably not gonna win and just start going for it on fourth down and end up shutting the game off 3rd quarter to go get some food

  2. Vance is in over his head. TS is a starter in league, if Broncos mistreat him in 2017 there will be 6-8 teams wanting to bring him in as starter in 2018

  3. and for some reason most Bronco fans think Siemian can be a franchise quality QB. After all he did make it to the pro bowl in 2016

    Yet I would put money on the fact that if:
    Siemian was a UFA nobody, not even the broncos would give him more than 5M a season.

  4. For some reason traider fans think they have a franchise QB in Carr. You know the guy, the guy that started his first season at 0-10 before he won a game.

  5. Siemian showed me a lot last year. He was very young, had a first round draft choice on his tail and hung in there pretty darn well considering how bad the O-line and running game were.

    I don’t know if he’ll beat out Lynch and/or Kelly, but this kid should have a job, at least as a back up as long as he’s healthy, which proves Elway knew what he was doing when he spent a late draft pick on the kid.

    —————————————————————- taking a team form 0-10 to a 12-3 record should impress your orange colored view of a player even if he plays for a team you hate. I know one person in Denver that is impressed

    “He came in and he played for the Raiders, and they where super terrible; He is one of my favorite quarterbacks, I like everything about him”
