After seeing Paxton Lynch’s performance vs. JAX, it is clear that the Denver Broncos can be more successful in 2016 with Trevor Siemian at quarterback.
Trevor Siemian was forced to miss his second game of the season with a sprained foot. Those injuries are tricky to deal with.
Paxton Lynch got his second start against the Jacksonville Jaguars. And while the Denver Broncos won the game, it was made clear in my eyes that the first round draft pick for the Broncos is not yet ready.
Do not get me wrong, I honestly think he can be a great quarterback for the Denver Broncos in the future.
But his performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team that honestly the Broncos should have won easily, did not impress me at all.
If there is one thing that Paxton Lynch did right in that game was that he did not turn the ball over.
One of my keys to the game was limiting the turnovers, which I praise Paxton for doing.
But Paxton Lynch was overthrowing and underthrowing receivers all day long. He finished the game 12/24 for 104 yards. Those numbers do not impress me.
I honestly think that Trevor Siemian, when healthy, gives us the best chance to win games.

And yes, I know he has his struggles, but he had quite the performance last week against the Kansas City Chiefs.
And the offensive line has not done either quarterback any favors either. The lack of production from them also hurts the running game.
In turn, that forces them to throw most of the day. And I have seen Trevor Siemian improve quite a bit in his throwing.
With that said, I believe that the quarterback controversy needs to end. It is clear to me which quarterback gives us the best chance to win in 2016.
As a fan, I support all players that put on the Denver Broncos colors.
But for 2016, this is Trevor Siemain’s team.
