Brock Osweiler to replace Trevor Siemian at QB for Broncos

The Broncos (3-4) have a defense and running game that are capable of reaching the playoffs.

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph will announce that Brock Osweiler is the Broncos' new starting quarterback at a team meeting on Wednesday, according to Mike Klis of 9News.

The Broncos are No. 1 in the National Football League in total defense, allowing 261 yards per game, but they are just 24th in scoring offense with 18.1 points per contest.

He replaces Trevor Siemian, who has seven turnovers and a 64.1 passer rating the past three games. After throwing 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions as the Texans' starter in 2016, Osweiler was traded to the Browns; who then released him during the preseason. And the losses are starting to wear thin all around. "I'm exhausted of losing the same way every game. We're not giving ourselves a chance to win".

The Denver Broncos' All-Pro cornerback is having another season that could earn him All-Pro consideration again. Siemian's play has just not been on point the last few weeks, with 2 touchdowns and 6 picks since the bye. "If a decision would be made to go in that direction, we would be fine with it".

"We can't see where we are until we stop turning the ball over", Joseph said. It would be hard not to at this point. The Broncos signed him to be their backup before the season started.

Trevor Siemian tossed three interceptions, completing 19 of 36 passes for 198 yards and a late, nearly meaningless score.

Five turnovers. Three sacks.

Turn up the volume as loud as you possibly can (perhaps even to 11?) because the Brock Lobster is about to get loose in Philadelphia. Now, the Broncos have made their call.

Another hint on the change to Osweiler was the unusually harsh descriptions Joseph used of Siemian's play.

It's all in the equation about who gets a crack at the Eagles.

"When you're football team is putting in max effort and the defense is playing good football, it's unfair to your team if you're not discussing that position, " Joseph said.

Joseph said he'll go back and watch the film before deciding on QB situation. But he had 20 other plays that were really, really good.
