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.

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.
