On Trevor Siemian
PP: Talk about the growth of Trevor Siemian. I mean, I have to imagine that Broncos’ fans were nervous about entering the title defense with a low round rookie as their quarterback. Now it obviously is different. Talk to us about the kid and what you have seen.
When preseason began, I was all about the quarterback who starts for the Broncos was the man I would be behind. Siemian impressed me in his rookie year during the preseason last year.
There were times he even did better than Brock Osweiler, which was a surprise. But I like the fact that he stays calm and cool in tough situations. Perfect example is last week against Cincy. His numbers were solid, but could not do a whole lot in the first half when it came to the red zone.
The one thing that impressed me in that game was that he did not turn the ball over. Protecting the ball and limiting turnovers is the one thing that I was hoping for in regards to whomever started at QB for the Broncos.
He has the Broncos to 3-0 and as long as he keeps it up, he could be one of the biggest surprises of the season. He is learning through the success and the growing pains and has excelled in more ways than one.
