Denver Broncos Training Camp: Day Three Observations
Trevor Siemian (T-Sizzle) lit up Dove Valley like it was Christmas in July. It was exactly the type of day needed to close the gap on first rounder Paxton Lynch, who has put his foot on the gas pedal since camp started. But Lynch did struggle somewhat today. Lynch made the throw of camp so far, however. Siemian, on the other hand, played the best of any player in Training Camp today.
For Siemian to win the job he must challenge a defense down field more. It is these throws that help the stretch runs and soften a defensive line. Siemian hit three deep balls right on the money to both Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas.
If it was a game, Siemian registered three touchdowns on the day. All of them were good as advertised. As outlined today at Training Camp, Siemian did close the gap, but Lynch is still ahead.
Obviously, Vance Joseph stated once there is separation in both quarterbacks he call it off. This makes the competition between Siemian and Lynch interesting. There is no denying the talent of Lynch, but Siemian has the cerebral nature to absorb a playbook quickly. But Lynch is doing an incredible job soaking up McCoy’s playbook like a sponge. It bodes well for competition when this occurs. Competition breeds greatness.
May the best one win.
