Gary Kubiak calls for improved decision-making from Trevor Siemian
The Denver Broncos want more from Trevor Siemian.
The young quarterback has made some mistakes, and according to coach Gary Kubiak, it’s because he’s still adjusting to the NFL game.
“He’s made some poor decisions, athletic decisions,” Kubiak said, via Jeff Legwold of ESPN. “I know that sounds kind of crazy, but it’s just learning that, ‘Trevor, That guy can make that play. You’re not in college anymore. You’re not going to throw that ball through that guy.’ I think some of the speed of the game factors that he’s beginning to understand a little bit is going to make him better each week.”
Kubiak doesn’t want Siemian to lose his confidence, though. He feels the young quarterback has been good in throwing into tight windows, but simply wants him to be smart about it.
“There are times that you are sitting there in a game, you’re down three, you have a great defense — do I try to make this throw or that throw? I think some of that probably creeps into your mind, but we really want to get that out,” Kubiak said. “We want him to play and be aggressive in what he’s doing. We threw it 33 times [against the Colts]. We trust him with the ball and that’s all over the field. I think he’ll continue to grow in some of those situations.”
The Broncos have fully backed Siemian, and he doesn’t seem to be in any danger of losing his job. It’s just a bit of public nudging to make himself better and probably see how he responds.
