Quarterbacks Grade: A
The Denver Broncos quarterback situation is sparatic all season, but last night may be a sign of the future. If anything, Trevor Siemian’s performance proved our youth movement at the quarterback position is the best option going forward. Siemian’s play in this pivotal Chiefs game could be a game changer in his confidence. We will see what he does for an encore at Jacksonville.
Siemian on the season has not played well at home statistically. But, if this is a sign of what to expect, sign me up. Head coach Gary Kubiak and the rest of the coaches stated during the week Siemian needed to use his legs and extend plays. The touchdown pass to Jordan Taylor brought plenty of memories of Jake Plummer and yes, John Elway, as well. It truly was a valiant effort for a quarterback who continues to be scrutinized every game.
Therefore, Siemian earned a “A’ grade for the first time on the season. I understand that may alarm a lot of people, but that performance became incredible when seeing the chances he took in the second half. Siemian made Bob Sutton, Chiefs defensive coordinator, pay all game long. This is a game changer for the ex-Northwestern quarterback if it continues; however, do not hold your breath.
