Broncos bench QB Trevor Siemian, promote Brock Osweiler

The Denver Broncos are making a move at the quarterback position, as Vance Joseph has informed the team of his decision to make Brock Osweiler the starting quarterback for the Broncos' matchup this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

"I think it's fair to say that right now, everything is being discussed", Joseph said Tuesday.

Coming in to make your first start of the season against the 7-1 Eagles may be hard, but Osweiler has handled more hard environments and greater pressure. "When you watch your starting quarterback make 20 or 25 fantastic throws, incredible checks and three horrific interceptions, that's when it becomes an issue".

It would be a shock if a switch from Siemian to Osweiler is not made by Wednesday morning. Osweiler was released when Kizer was named the starter on September 2 and signed with the Broncos later that day. The Browns released him in the summer and he quickly rejoined the Broncos, who needed a backup after Paxton Lynch sprained his throwing shoulder in the preseason.

Osweiler showed flashes of success when he replaced Peyton Manning at the end of the 2015 season and finished with a 5-2 record. It means Thomas hasn't had a touchdown catch in roughly 50 weeks, no running back has more than one rushing touchdown and even the Broncos' elite defense has forced just six turnovers, or 11 fewer than the league leaders (Buffalo and Baltimore).

Osweiler came to Denver after being let go by the Cleveland Browns, and said at the time of his signing with the Broncos that he told his agent to get him to the Broncos no matter what it took.

Siemian became Denver's starter last season and was solid, registering 3,401 yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 picks. Lynch, a first-round draft pick of the Broncos in 2016, lost the competition for the starting job to Siemian in August for the second straight year.

"In your heart, you know he can play better because those three balls he threw, you just can't throw".
