The Broncos still have 17 days until they open the season against the Panthers. Coach Gary Kubiak won’t wait quite that long to pick a starting quarterback, even if at times it seems that he will.
Kubiak’s decision is coming next week.
“We have three quarterbacks, two of which weren’t on this team last year and one that has one regular-season snap,” coach Gary Kubiak told reporters on Monday. “I knew this was going to take some time. I think it’s a credit to them and how well they’ve pushed each other. It’s down to the nitty-gritty here. I’m going to make a decision next week and we’re going to go to work. They’ve all put themselves in position to go out there and compete.”
Although Trevor Siemian will start the third preseason game, that doesn’t mean he has the inside track to the job over Mark Sanchez and rookie Paxton Lynch. As the story pointed out, there's no guarantee whoever is named the starter will be a lock for the remainder of the season. This is shaping up to be a potential messy, yet interesting, fantasy situation.
