Meme Monday: Siemian Edition
This week’s edition of “Meme Monday” will be about the next starting QB for the Denver Broncos, Trevor Siemian. WHO!?!? You know who he is! The gunslinger from Northwestern deserves more attention and today, he will have a whole article dedicated to him. Hope you enjoy it, Trev…
Arguably the biggest headline heading into Training Camp in 2016 is “who will the starting QB be?” For a team looking to defend as Super Bowl Champions, the Broncos find themselves in a very unique but oddly familiar situation. Not many teams have started the season following a Super Bowl win with a new QB, but it’s like what they say, history tends to repeat itself.
After the Broncos victory in Super Bowl 33, the team found themselves without an established starter after Elway retired. Fast forward 17 years later and Broncos find themselves in a similar situation, only this time, it was Manning hanging up the cleats. Although history has repeated itself, hopefully the Broncos learned from the last time this happened and find a capable long-term solution to replace “the Sheriff”.
To avoid any uncertainty at the position, the Broncos moved up in the 1st round to select Paxton Lynch and acquired veteran Mark Sanchez in a trade with the Eagles. Between the talent of Lynch and experience of Sanchez, many fans expect a smoother transition to a new era of Broncos football than what we witnessed in 1999. One person often left out of the conversation though is Trevor Siemian, a 7th Round pick in 2015.
The former Northwestern gunslinger not only won a roster spot as a rookie but by all reports, has been “even” with Sanchez in the competition for the starting QB position this off-season. Now, that could mean a variety of things. Does that mean that Lynch and Sanchez have been so bad that a 7th Round pick is keeping up with them? Possibly, but it could also mean that the Broncos may have found a gem in the 7th Round with Siemian.
I will give a further analysis of Siemian and his pro prospects as Training Camp nears but for today, I figured I’d give him some attention with some memes. Hope ya’ll enjoy them! Let’s get started.
First off, Trevor, how does it feel to win a Super Bowl in your rookie season?
Who wouldn’t?!?! A lot of people would love to be in your shoes. Speaking of shoes, it looks like you’ll have to fit in Brock’s that he left here.
Yeah, Brock only wears Cowboy boots now. Speaking of Brock, Trevor, you should write him a thank you letter for the golden opportunity that he gifted you.
What’s that? Peyton has something to say about this matter.
Thanks, Peyton! I knew you always liked me more than Brent…. First things first, though, these reporters need to say my name right. I mean, I AM the starting QB of the WORLD CHAMPION DENVER BRONCOS!
Wait, I have to “compete” for the job? Who’s my competition?

For real? Ugh. Well, what do the coaches have to say about me?
That’s sweet. I knew they always liked me. I’m so confident in my chances, I’m just gonna say this….
Boom! That mic is dropped and broken. Watch out, world! Trevor “Sizzlin'” Siemian is about to take over the Mile High City!
Thanks for reading and GO BRONCOS!
