Not the worst back-up QB you can have. Career 30 touchdowns, 24 interceptions. Learned behind Peyton Manning in 2015. Backed up Kirk Cousins in Minnesota last year. Was a solid starter for the Broncos in 2016 and 2017. Not great, not horrendous. He can win you some games while Darnold is OUT. The problem is the schedule: Week 2: vs Browns Week 3 at Patriots Week 4 BYE Week 5 at Eagles Week 6 vs Cowboys Week 7 vs Patriots Many people said it would be tough for Sam, so it will be brutal for a back-up QB like Siemian. If they can somehow win 2 games, and head into Week 8 at (2-5), Sam could still save the season with that weak schedule. Not impossible.
