Kubiak: First preseason game will “have a lot to do” with picking QB

The Broncos play their first preseason game of the year in Chicago next Thursday and that will give the team a chance to see the players competing for the starting quarterback spot in game action for the first time.
The first preseason game is often a forgettable affair as first-stringers play sparingly, but it looks like it will be a more meaningful game for the Broncos. On Thursday, coach Gary Kubiak said that the results of that game will be a big factor when he makes his choice between Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch.
“I want to get them out there, I’m going to put a number of throws on each one of them,” Kubiak said, via Mike Klis of KUSA. “And that’s going to have a lot to do with decision-making time to be honest with you.”
Kubiak said it has been “very, very competitive” between the players during practices and Klis’ take is that things have gotten “muddier” over the course of camp because each day finds a different quarterback playing well. Next week’s game will provide a different data point to consider that could nudge Kubiak in the direction of Week One’s starter.
