Chad Kelly’s Debut Creates QB Conundrum In Denver

Von Miller will play in Broncos first preseason game

Trevor Siemian threw for 165 yards and two touchdowns, one covering 78 yards, and Kyle Sloter and Kirk Cousins, Minnesota's big offseason acquisition, threw for a touchdown apiece as the Vikings defeated the host Denver Broncos 42-28 on Saturday night.

Lynch's first-round draft status does not matter anymore as the Broncos have given him countless opportunities to seize even the primary backup role with the team. "It looked like - I've been saying this in practice, our guys are coming off the ball, it looked like it was in practice". He had a great spring, he's had a great camp and so it's his turn to be the two.

What Chad Kelly has created is a quarterback conundrum for head coach Vance Joseph. Kelly threw 10 more passes (21) completing 14 for 177 yards, two interceptions, and one interception. He has great potential, great physical potential, but it's got to equal performance eventually, he understands that.

Lynch was disappointed, Joseph said, "but he understands that it's a performance business". Case Keenum agreed to a deal with the team to become the starting quarterback in Denver, but there were a lot of questions remaining about who would be the backup. But Kelly has already won the popular vote in that regard, given how he was serenaded during the fourth quarter this past Saturday night. "He's earned that right".

Lynch is signed through 2019 with a fifth-year option in 2020, and right now, he's proven to be a needlessly expensive backup quarterback. He's played with poise, he's played with confidence, he moved the ball for us Saturday.

"Whatever I can do I'm going to keep on working extremely hard", Kelly said.

"When they called me, I just expressed my concerns that I don't want this to be a fight or anything like this", Zimmer said, via Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "We've still got a couple more weeks before we go", Zimmer said. They don't know everything. So, I've got to work hard, I've got to watch more film than I ever have before.
