Broncos going with Siemian at quarterback

(TSX / STATS) -- In the end, starting Trevor Siemian was the only choice the Denver Broncos could make.

A team at the embryonic stage of its rebuilding process could afford to start Paxton Lynch at quarterback and take its lumps as he learns to run an NFL offense that is light years beyond the spread system he executed at the University of Memphis.

But the Broncos are 18 months removed from a Super Bowl 50 win. The defense that fueled that victory is still together for the most part, featuring three All-Pros who started in that game. They believe they're still in a championship window if they can get an efficient offense that is consistent and doesn't beat itself like last year's attack did.
