After a 51-23 beatdown at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Denver Broncos management is at a loss. They had benched starting quarterback Trevor Siemian, and inserted veteran Brock Osweiler into the starting lineup, with hopes of an immediate turnaround. However, those hopes were dashed on Sunday as Osweiler finished the game 19 for 38 with just 208 yards, and two interceptions in the loss.
“We had expected Brock Osweiler to really give our season a lift.” stated head coach Vance Joseph. “Obviously, there was a flaw in our thinking. We knew in the back of our minds that he sucks. Everyone knows he sucks. So, that was a mistake on our part.”
Vice President of Football Operations John Elway spoke to the surprise that he felt as Osweiler and the Broncos struggled on Sunday.
“We had considered Brock to be kind of an ace in our sleeve.” Elway told the Daly Dose. “But I couldn’t tell the difference between Brock and Trevor in this game, except that Brock is taller (Osweiler is 6’8″ while Siemian is listed as 6’3″) other than that he looked exactly the same.”
“When we drafted Brock back in 2012, we felt like he could be a talented player, with a bright future in the NFL. That hasn’t turned out the way that we would have liked. Paxton Lynch has also been disappointing so far. After the loss on Sunday, I think we have no choice but to look to the future. I think it is apparent that we will need to draft another quarterback for this team. I think it is also apparent that he needs to be taller. I am hoping to find a quarterback out there that is in the 6-foot-9 or 6-foot-10 range. A seven-footer would be ideal. I think that would mean a big improvement for our offense.”
