In an off-season revolving around a game of hypothetical “musical chairs” between veteran passers, maybe it’s a youth movement that is needed to remedy the Broncos QB conundrum.
With the start of off-season workouts beginning this week, teams get their first opportunity to get to know their new teammates and start a bond that will last them through the end of the upcoming season. Much has been made about the departures from Dove Valley this off-season. Everyone from Malik Jackson to the great Peyton Manning (oh, and some Brent Osbweymler guy) left the Broncos to other teams or another stage of their life.
While most of the core players from the Super Bowl winning team are still with the Broncos, there have been plenty of questions revolving around who will replace the pieces they have lost in the off-season. It seems like there has been a reasonable suggestion for every position to be filled except for one,
Quarterback. In a position that is often referred to as the toughest to play in any sport, there are many polarizing opinions as to who can come in and replace Peyton Manning(and to a lesser extent, Bob Brockmeiler) at QB and help this team defend their Championship status.
Just about any and every available veteran QB has been linked to the Broncos at some point this off-season. Regardless of the upside, experience or reliability that they may have with the Champs, there doesn’t seem to be a consensus amongst fans as to which veteran QB would really be the best option.
Just my opinion, but if you ask me, none of them are the solution. To me, the best solution for the Broncos QB quandary lies in the youth of the position.
Whether it’s Trevor Siemian or a draft pick, I firmly believe that best option for the Broncos (to quote John Elway), “To win from now on” is to find a capable young QB and allowing him to grow into something great. Over the next few pages, I’ll list a variety of reasons why this is the route the Broncos should take in their QB search and hopefully by the end of the article, some of you will be itching for a youth movement behind center.
