As the Broncos’ quarterback carousel turns: It was reported earlier Tuesday that Paxton Lynch will become the team’s third starting quarterback this season. Mike Klis of 9News now reports that Trevor Siemian will back up Lynch this week.

That means Brock Osweiler has slipped to No. 3.

Siemian went 3-4 as the starter, completing 61.5 percent of his passes for 1,669 yards with nine touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Osweiler replaced him and went 0-3 as the starter, completing 53 percent of his passes for 701 yards with three touchdowns and four interceptions.

The changes at the quarterback position follow a change at offensive coordinator, where Bill Musgrave will replace Mike McCoy for the rest of the season.

  1. Is too bad the Broncos aren’t better. The Chargers are going to go 8-8 and probably win the AFCW.

    You know what happens to Charger coaches who go 8-8? They get a contract extension! Actually I’m just kidding. Anthony Lynn will get a contract extension if he doesn’t win another game. Its the Chargers way.

    Depends on how old you are. The history is that they were in the playoffs routinely under Marty Schott, but he couldn’t get them past the conference championship game, so they FIRED HIM in 2006. In 2007 under Turner, they made the playoffs, but lost out again, and they haven’t made it since. So much for replacing Marty to get to the big game. So the actual Chargers way as you have stated it is only half of it. First you get rid of the winner who took three count them three moribund franchises and made them competitive, THEN you hire incomptents with zero track record and give them extension after extension.
    Spanos is an idiot from top to bottom, wasted LT’s and Rivers’s best years.

  3. Osweiler must have naked pictures of someone in the broncos organization. How’d he even get signed again this year? They got a mess going on in Denver and Peyton Manning isn’t walking through that door.
