All signs point to Osweiler replacing Siemian as Denver Broncos QB

The Denver Broncos have named Brock Osweiler their starting quarterback for Sunday's Week 9 tilt against the Philadelphia Eagles. Joseph had the two quarterbacks meet him at the team's headquarters last night to personally inform them before telling the team.

Siemian has two TD passes and eight interceptions over the Broncos' 1-4 slump, including three ugly interceptions in a 29-19 loss at Kansas City on Monday night that wasted a strong defensive effort.

Osweiler started seven games for an injured Peyton Manning in 2015 and then left in free agency for Houston.

Osweiler came to Denver after being let go by the Cleveland Browns, and said at the time of his signing with the Broncos that he told his agent to get him to the Broncos no matter what it took.

Joseph was asked by media Tuesday whether the move would be permanent as the Broncos move ahead in their 2017 season. We're not yet two years removed from that happening, and now - 23 regular season games later - Osweiler is finally getting another shot to be Denver's starting quarterback.

"He had 20 other plays that we're really, really good, " Joseph said of Siemian.

According to Mike Klis, who covers the #Denver Broncos for 9News, the team has made a change at quarterback.

Denver selected Lynch with the No. 26 overall pick in the first round of the 2016 National Football League draft out of Memphis, and he made two starts as a rookie. After all, Lynch is still recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered during preseason.

-SPECIAL TEAMS: D-plus - A series of high punts helped contain Tyreek Hill, although a holding penalty against the Chiefs saved the Broncos on Riley Dixon's first punt and wiped out a 36-yard return. He returned to practice last week, but it's possible he is not yet ready to return to game action.

Osweiler swore at the time he'd be a loyal backup, declaring, "This is Trevor's team and I'm the backup".

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. In your heart, you know he can play better because those three balls he threw, you just can't throw.
