Kubiak not changing quarterbacks, but says Siemian “has to get better”

The Broncos won’t be making a quarterback change, coach Gary Kubiak told reporters Monday.

First-year starter Trevor Siemian has struggled in recent weeks, and first-round pick Paxton Lynch is waiting in the wings. But Kubiak said the team is sticking with Siemian.

“I feel really good about what Trevor is doing,” Kubiak said. “But Trevor is like any other player. He has to get better.”

Siemian was 18-of-37 passing in Sunday night’s loss at the Raiders, his third straight game completing under 60 percent of his passes. He threw two touchdown passes and one interception and was sacked twice.

The Broncos were outgained by nearly 100 yards and the Raiders had the ball for 41:28. Kubiak said the offense “needs to find a way to stay on the damn football field.”
