We are already a quarter of the way into the NFL season and the Denver Broncos are sitting atop the AFC standings at 4-0. The first two games of the season were anything but pretty, but Denver has come on strong the last two weeks with convincing wins on the road.

Looking ahead, if the Broncos play their “A” game, there’s really nobody left on their schedule who should beat Denver. In fact, the way I see it, the only team that can derail the Denver Broncos are the Denver Broncos.

One thing that can trip up the Broncos this season is indecisiveness at the quarterback position. We began to get a glimpse of that on Sunday when Trevor Siemian was injured and Paxton Lynch came in to finish the game. Twitter seemed to explode with happiness that Lynch finally got his opportunity. It was nice to see the rookie have a solid game, but it’s is a very slippery slope.

Siemian has done everything possibly asked of him since the Broncos found themselves short on quarterbacks after the Brock Osweiler departure. This does not mean that I think Siemian is the quarterback of the future, just the quarterback for this season. Siemian has earned a lot of trust from his teammates and his coaches since winning the starting job in the preseason. Denver’s offense is beginning to finally open up under Siemian for the first time since the middle of 2014.

Lynch has incredible upside. He is big, strong, fast and has a huge arm. However, I do not think it’s worth it for Denver to risk a potential championship this season for upside. There is no doubt that Lynch is going to be great in this system, but this season is just not the right time. There is just too much on the line for the Broncos to deviate from what this offense has built so far this year under Siemian.

Having two solid quarterbacks is a good problem for Denver to have. If healthy, Siemian should have the chance to finish what he has started to build this year. Leave the quarterback controversy for the offseason.
