Vance Joseph didn’t like what he saw from QBs Sunday

AP

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said that the “true evaluation” portion of the quarterback competition between Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch would come during training camp and it sounds like the evaluation of Sunday’s effort is thumbs down for both players.

Joseph offered a negative assessment of both players on a day when the Broncos secondary got the better of them. Mike Klis of KUSA reports that Lynch was intercepted by Bradley Roby early and Siemian was intercepted by Lorenzo Doss late with a lot of other trouble in between.

“Did I like what I saw?” Joseph said. “Not really. Both guys had issues today. I didn’t like what I saw today. Honest. They both struggled.”

The good news for the quarterbacks is that they won’t face too many defenses as talented as the one Denver puts on the field. The bad news is that they won’t be seeing a different defense until they head to Chicago for their preseason opener on August 10, so Lynch or Siemian will need to figure something out at home if they want to grab an edge in the competition.

  1. refreshing comments from a HC.

    At least he didn’t spew out some robo-neutral, say alot-but say nothing, mumbo jumbo

    That said, Live bullets will fly in 43 days, Donks.
    Sure be a shame to waste another year of that stellar D with a sub-par O

    They need to give them the same HGH that Manning was taking. Quick, someone call Manning’s wife to see if he has any left.

    What an original comment – not.

  3. Oh man, what was Elway thinking moving up in the draft to get Lynch ? Jerry Jones must be thinking thank goodness we didn’t get Lynch and ended up with Dak Prescott.

    Wait till you see Vanny’s defense, the QB position will look great in comparison.

    To be fair there’s more talent in the empty uniforms of Denver’s defense than there was in Miami.

  5. No one to blame except Elway. He insisted on trading up to get marginally better than average Lynch. Elway was a great qb but that doesn’t translate into a quarterback whisperer.

  6. “The good news for the quarterbacks is that they won’t face too many defenses as talented as the one Denver puts on the field”

    Mr.Ed and his hee haws have the 4th best defense in the AFC west and they will end up in 4th place where they belong.

    Considering the Broncos only beat two teams with winning records last season, and the QB’s were Brock Osweiller and Matt McGloin, I’d say the Broncos have other problems to worry about than the QB and who’s coaching the team.

    #4 scoring D and #1 against the pass. Denver’s true problem on D was it’s offense’s inability to stay on the field and put up points. I’m no Bronco fan but that was still an outstanding D

    Last team from the AFC West other than the broncos to win a Superbowl was over 34 years ago.

    Losers.

    ============
    Had to cheat to win every trophy. acts as if cheating to win is ok because buddy goodell let them keep tarnished trophies.
    pretends they are legit.

    Losers.

    and all that while winning two whole games against winning teams all season.
    by the way, most teams that didnt make the playoffs biggest problem was the ability to “keep up” and score more than the opponent. go find a better excuse for this sad example of a team. Hee Haw!

    ?? I know you are but what am I is your response? as bad at nonsensical responses as mr. ed and the hee haws are at stopping the run!

  16. Coach is just trying to chit chat with the writers. Belichick went into a big discussion a couple days ago about how it’s way too early to evaluate the players, and the Broncos feel the same way, but it’s nice to throw a bone to the writers, even if there isn’t any meat on it. In reality, the Broncos have two really good young QBs, and the coach knows that better than I do. When a coach doesn’t like a player, he usually talks about how good he’s doing because he’s trying to build trade value.

    “Really good young QBs”? C’mon man……

  18. If I’m Broncos fan I’d probably look over at the Jets and Dolphins and see what happens when the team and local press all get together to tell you what a flawless training camp your young QB is having, and he threw a million touchdowns, and everything is fine so stay calm and buy tickets. And then I’d feel a lot better.

    Coaches being critical of players isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

    ——————————-
    Every team passed on Brady through 7 rounds of the draft, until Belichick used a compensatory pick after the 7th round – the 199th pick. Pretty much as a pickem favor to Brady’s college coach who said what the the kid lacked in physique he more than made up for in smarts. Belichick had 3 QBs already, so Brady gets put into a rare 4th slot as a development case… the point is, the draft is a crap-shoot by guestimation. Look at Kurt Warner, undrafted. Jerrah just got lucky. One thing I will say though, is that it’s almost never worth trading UP in the draft, Belichick is renowned for trading down (hence the loss of a 1st made little difference), but given Denver’s QB woes, it’s forgiveable for Elway to try, and Lynch may well yet come to something.
