The Denver Broncos have now lost three of their last four games and it has been largely due to the serious regression of Trevor Siemian at the quarterback position. Jeff Essary of Mile High Report broke down how badly he has regressed last week and because he can no longer get himself to step into the pocket even when its clean he has become a very bad quarterback.
A change is now necessary if the Broncos hope to salvage any kind of playoff run. And it sounds like Vance Joseph might be nearing that kind of decision.

However, when pressed he was adamant that Siemian is their quarterback.
Vance Joseph said he did not think about changing QBs. “He’s our QB. ... it was a two-score game. ... It wasn’t simply on Trevor.”— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) October 22, 2017
At some point, a coach must make a change for the sake of making a change. Joseph may not be at the point yet, but how many offensive stinkers will Siemian and the offense continue to produce before Joseph gets desperate enough for a change?
It should be today, but coaches are stubborn. Instead, they’ll try to fix this:

Will Brock Osweiler be the savior of the season if he started next week? Unlikely. He too is a broken quarterback now after a season trying to run the Bill O’Brien offense with the Houston Texans.
What he has is moxy and competitive fire. He could provide a spark in the passing game. More likely, he’ll just keep the job warm for Paxton Lynch once he returns from his shoulder injury.
To me, it seems silly that this franchise has given a 7th round pick with limited arm talent 20 games to show us he isn’t an NFL starter, yet has only given their 1st round pick 2.5 games to show us anything. It’s the opposite of how every other franchise does it.
And here we are; first shutout since 1992. Not even Tim Tebow achieved this level of offensive ineptitude.

Make the change.
Should the Broncos bench Siemian this week?
