Paxton Lynch Named Broncos Starting Quarterback

22 November 2017

He completed 59 percent of his passes in those games for 497 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

At the very least, vice president/general manager John Elway and head coach Vance Joseph will get to see if Lynch is equipped for the starting job heading into 2018. At this juncture, Denver is less concerned about wins and losses and more anxious about whether Lynch is the future, or if he's a bust in waiting. While Lynch's results could be erratic, the Broncos' decision to commit to him makes him worth owning in all settings that start two quarterbacks. The Broncos are not yet officially eliminated from playoff contention but their chances of reaching the playoffs are almost nonexistent, so using the last six games of the season to take a longer look at Lynch makes sense. Lynch was a star in Memphis, showing off athleticism and a big arm. Osweiler went 0-3 as the starter. A projected month-long hiatus became a three-month recovery. Denver fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy this week as well. They are 27th against the pass (253.2 yards allowed per game) and 17th in run defense (113.8 yards allowed per game). They also stand 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 meetings with the Raiders and 5-1 in their last 6 meetings when in Oakland.

However, days before that injury, Joseph had already announced that Trevor Siemian would be the team's starting quarterback to open the season.

"I wasn't taking shots at him", Marshall said.

"I feel good", Lynch said of his shoulder on Monday.

In a season full of accusations of quitting, not caring and just being flat out soft, Anderson's postgame demeanor should serve as a reminder to all; you don't care more than they do.
