Broncos should give Paxton Lynch one more week to get ready

Brock Osweiler would give the Denver Broncos the best chance to win against the Philadelphia Eagles, then bring in Paxton Lynch against the New England Patriots.

With Trevor Siemian finished as a starting quarterback in the NFL, the Denver Broncos will need to make a decision on which player to turn too immediately as they travel to face the toughest team in the NFL in the Philadelphia Eagles.

Reportedly, they are leaning towards Paxton Lynch, but that would be a mistake.

Lynch only began throwing a little over a week ago and practiced fully for the first time last week after missing nearly two months of football. To thrust him into the starting role after just two weeks of warm-up is a recipe for disaster for a young quarterback.

Instead, you have Brock Osweiler just sitting there who already knows the offense quite well and has been practicing with the team since he got here.

What are the Broncos afraid of? Why are they avoiding Osweiler at all costs?

I think the answer is they are afraid he might play well. He certainly can’t play any worse than Trevor Siemian over the last two games.


Who do you think should start at quarterback for the Broncos?
