Brock Osweiler will start again this week

After Sunday night’s 41-16 loss to the Patriots extended his team’s losing streak to five games, Broncos coach Vance Joseph said that he and his staff would watch tape of the game before deciding who will start at quarterback against the Bengals in Week 11.

That review has been completed and the Broncos will stick with the status quo. Joseph announced on Monday that Brock Osweiler will start again.

“Brock played a solid game yesterday … in the red zone it wasn’t great, but we moved the ball,” Joseph said.

Osweiler was 18-of-33 for 221 yards, a touchdown and an interception against New England in his second straight start since replacing Trevor Siemian. It’s not hard to figure out why the Broncos wouldn’t go back to Siemian after seven starts to open the season, but Joseph was asked if Paxton Lynch was a consideration for the job.

Joseph said Lynch is still recovering from the right shoulder injury that opened the door for Osweiler’s return to Denver in the first place and is “still throwing intermediate passes, not really deep passes” as part of that recovery.

  1. Despite the final score he really wasnt all that bad last night. Certainly not their great answer, but I wouldn’t lay that loss on his doorstep either.

    ‘Member that time Brock chucked a football so far out of bounds he almost killed some random dude on the sidelines?

    You ‘member? I ‘member

  4. Over the past two seasons… imagine one game with a complete Bronco effort.

    D, O, STs, all turning in even a good… not even great… on field effort.

    Wow… I seriously can’t.

  5. At some point the offense is going to get really tired of having to carry that defense. In fact, it’s likely already happened.

  6. Maybe they’ve decided to join the Tank the season race with the other teams that need a quarterback.

  7. To illustrate how wide of a gap between Belichick and the rest of the coaches in the league, you could start Osweiler on the Patriots team and they would still be favored to win it all. The offensive line will keep clean, the receivers will get open and be where they need to be at all times, special teams will still be awesome, and the defense will keep the score below 20 points for most games. It is almost unfair to compare any team with the Patriots.

  8. The loss last night really had nothing to do with Osweiller. Is he great? Nope. Is he bad? Nope.

    Denver’s special teams were responsible for 17 of the Patriots points and their defense was porous.

    Watch though, here come the ‘if Kaepernick was on the Broncos they would have won’ crowd.

  9. Regarding Lynch, the local speculation is that they don’t want to play him because it will kill any trade value he has next offseason. They’ll either go after a free agent quarterback this off season or draft one with what is looking to be a top ten pick, but they’ve seen enough of Lynch in practice to know he’s not the answer. The “injury” keeping him out of action was only supposed to last 2 weeks — 11 weeks ago!

  10. It’s never a good sign when people feel compelled to announce that someone is keeping their job for at least one more week. They don’t usually put a sign out in front of the tire store that says “Johnny will be rotating tires again for at least the following week”.

    =============
    simply not true.
    ST was responsible for 7 points.
    your porous overrated “championship” defense, led by one trick miller and eye poke talib gave up the rest of those points.
    and yes, ostrich is really that BAD. if not for sanders, who is truly the only gem on that entire team, the ostrich would have thrown more picks!

    but then again, keep lying to yourselves about the state of things. I am really enjoying the suffering of you hee haws. looking forward to about 10 more years of it too!
