Broncos’ new offense, QBs uninspiring in preseason opener – The Denver Post – Colorado News

CHICAGO — An hour before kickoff Thursday, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch trotted out onto Soldier Field to warm up, setting up shop at the 20-yard line in front of a swath of fans who quickly pulled out camera phones and dangled photos for signatures.

In the center stood a young girl donning an orange No. 18 Manning jersey. At her side was an older man wearing John Elway’s No. 7. There was no No. 13. No 12, either. No sign of the Broncos’ future.

Thursday’s preseason opener — a 24-17 win over the Bears — put them one step closer to finding him.

Siemian, as planned by first-year head coach Vance Joseph, started and played 19 plays before handing the reins to Lynch midway through the second quarter. Kyle Sloter closed out the final quarter and was the only one of the three quarterbacks to throw a touchdown pass.
