Coach Kubiak not tipping his hand at quarterback (Jeff Legwold,
As the Broncos close in on the end of their offseason program, coach Gary Kubiak formally put the race to the team's starting quarterback as tie between Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian.

In Mark Sanchez's first two seasons in the NFL, his team moved deep enough into the postseason to play in the AFC Championship Game. He's 4-2 as a postseason starter and just above .500 in regular-season games he has started (37-35). So why do so many people frame the idea of Sanchez at quarterback as a bad idea for the Denver Broncos?*
