Broncos "Not Sure" Who Their Starting Quarterback Will Be

The Denver Broncos won't commit to Trevor Siemian at quarterback after their third-straight turnover-filled loss.

"If something is done guys I want to meet with the players first, meaning the quarterbacks and the coaches and with our football team before we put anything out there publicly so nothing is going to happen tonight by no means", noted Joseph. Trevor Siemian and backup?

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Broncos are considering switching to 2016 first-round QB Paxton Lynch for Sunday's game in Philadelphia against the 7-1 Eagles. Siemian has now thrown eight interceptions and just two touchdowns in the team's four losses.

The problem for Joseph and the Broncos is the depth chart is unsettled behind Siemian. Brock Osweiler is Denver's other "option".

Although 17 of Siemian's 19 sacks during this slump have come with Denver in three-receiver sets where there's no help for his struggling tackles, Joseph defended McCoy, who last week left Allen Barbre to block Joey Bosa mostly by himself in his first game at right tackle since 2009.

The Broncos fell to 3-4 after Monday's loss.

Denver's defense played exceptionally well Monday night. Joseph knows he has to do what is best for the football team. "So, in my mind that was appropriate at the time", Joseph said.

Joseph, who was hired in part to restore locker room harmony, has been adamant that no one's pointing fingers, but cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said after the latest game there's definitely some friction. The Broncos are now ranked No. 19, a big drop from their No. 4 ranking earlier this season. That said, if healthy, Lynch has to be an option to start if he's healthy enough to do so.

"At the end of the day it's about results", declared Joseph. "We have a good football team and we have a great defense, so if we don't give the ball away we can beat anybody in the league".

"But the bottom line: players play and coaches coach".
