On Saturday night, August 27, I had the pleasure of watching the Denver Broncos take on the Los Angeles Rams from the south stands of what continues to be known as Sports Authority Field at Mile High — although probably not for much longer. And to my surprise, fans don't seem panicked at the prospect of a quarterback from Northwestern starting for the team.
I know. Having attended Northwestern, I'm as shocked as anyone. Maybe more so.
Although Trevor Siemian looked competent at best during Denver's 17-9 victory over the Rams, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak will almost certainly name him the starter this week — perhaps as early as today. Time will tell if this move will be a good thing or a disaster. But that's the bizarre situation in which the defending Super Bowl champs find themselves.
Twitter Nation is still coming to grips with the Siemian situation. In fact, plenty of tweeters have yet to figure out how to spell his name, with quite a few of them opting for ape-friendly "Simian."
No more monkey business. Here are our picks for the twenty most memorable tweets about the Broncos quarterback situation, including the likelihood that veteran Mark Sanchez will either be cut or forced to take a smaller salary.
