Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian started the season off on a good note. The Broncos were playing balanced football and were 3-1. Siemian was playing good football and provided a steady hand at the position.
Fast forward eight weeks and he has been benched for both Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch, played terribly, and now finds himself back as the starting quarterback for a team that has lost its identity. For how poorly the season has gone, Siemian has tried to remain positive but also recognizes that he has to do better.
I’m good. It happens. You look around the league, you see quarterbacks take their licks. I feel like I’ve taken my fair share, no doubt. But it’s all on me. I’ve been reckless with the ball at times, made some bad throws. I can own up to that. I’ve got to improve, no doubt.
Siemian has attributed his dip in performance to a mental game.
I’m kind of out of sync at times. In times I haven’t played well, there hasn’t been a real rhythm with me and that trickles all the way through the offense.
When things aren’t going well, you want to make a play, you want to do something — fit a ball in, you want to make sure you don’t miss a play — and that’s when bad things happen. For me I just kind of go back to feeling the flow of the game and not trying to do too much.
This week he will get a chance to snap the Broncos skid against the Jets.
