Siemian is an action, not words kind of quarterback (Mike Klis, KUSA)
Come to think about it, there are similarities between Siemian and the head coach who gave him this chance. Like Kubiak, Siemian isn't flashy. He's not arrogant. He is solid and matter of fact.

*Siemian wasn't handed QB job, he won it (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
In late May, the Broncos' Pro Bowl cornerback strolled off the practice field and dropped this little bit of foreshadowing: "Trevor has a maturity to him. He's kind of the sleeper, I would say.

We've also seen him make big plays in the preseason games under the lights. I wouldn't sleep on Trevor to win the job.''*

His final statistics aren't particularly impressive—30-for-48 for 284 yards and one touchdown with two interceptions—but they're misleading, as Northwestern managed to drop several great passes from the quarterback. *

The Gold Standard: Lindsey Vonn visits the Broncos (Aric DiLalla)*
"I learned that he's not that good at Ping-Pong [laughter]. But we still won, so it's totally fine." *

My first impression of him was 'wow he is tall.' I talked with him for a while and learned a few fun facts about Shane Ray.
