Broncos QB Trevor Siemian admits he’s been ‘reckless with the ball’


The Denver Broncos are in the midst of an eight-game losing streak which has completely derailed their season and left fans wondering about what needs to be changed in the future. Obviously, a struggling offense is a big part of this, but there have been multiple other areas of struggle as well.

The quarterback play for the Broncos has been one main sticking point, though, and while Trevor Siemian had a solid start to the season, he’s struggled quite a bit as of late. He opened up about his struggles on Thursday and didn’t hold back while being brutally honest.

Courtesy of Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post:

“I’m good. It happens,” he said Wednesday. “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.”

“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.”

Obviously, it goes without saying that Siemian’s play could be improved, as he’s thrown 11 touchdowns against 13 interceptions, and tossed three last week alone. But, the Broncos are likely going to look for their quarterback of the future this offseason, so it’s just about finishing out the season and showcasing himself for either another role or a backup gig.
