Siemian Vs Lynch – Who Has the Upper Hand in the Broncos QB Battle?

If there’s one hot topic around the Broncos upcoming training camp in July, it’s who is going to be the teams starter at quarterback when the 2017 season kicks off.

First you have incumbent starter Trevor Siemian, who started 14 games last season for the then defending Super Bowl champions. On his heels is that of 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch.

Recent reports is that Lynch is hot on the trail of Siemian, and the gap is closer than ever to the point where new coach Vance Joseph can easily make the move to the second-year player.

Last season Siemian threw for 3,401 yards and 18 touchdowns (with 10 interceptions) in the 14 games he started. Overall the team was tied for 21st in the NFL last year.

Siemiam is a beast, at 6-7, 244 pounds and last season in his limited time he threw for 497 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.

Joseph has already said the quarterback competition won’t begin in earnest until training camp, but from the overall tone of it, it seems that the moment Siemian slips up, Lynch is going to get his chance to be the man under center.

Who do you think wins the QB derby for the Broncos? It’s the biggest position on the team, and one that is worth watching very closely when camp starts.
