Trevor Siemian says he’s been “letting it rip” since last season.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.

Trevor Siemian says this QB competition this off season doesn’t feel different than last. Was that an underhanded dis on Lynch? If so, kudos, showing a sliver of deceptive sass is a good thing. “Not for me. I try to take it day by day and make the big things small. For me, it’s pretty easy. I just want to be better than I was yesterday. Hopefully the number 13 that rolls out of the locker room tomorrow is better than the ‘slappy’ that rolled out here today. That’s really all I’m trying to do and if I can make the big things small, which I’ve tried to do really since I got drafted, hopefully things will work out.”

He went on to say that he takes it day by day just trying to be better than he was the day before. Um, there was no practice yesterday, Trevor, so this was a canned answer. Go back to a little underhanded Southernness.

On picking up where he left off in OTAs and minicamp “About two periods in probably (laughing). It took me a while but once you get going and knock the rust off it’s just good to be back.”

On Head Coach Vance Joseph comparing his personality with QB Paxton Lynch“I don’t know, I guess that’s for Coach Joseph to say. Paxton’s a little taller than me (laughing). I’ll let Coach Joseph handle that one.”

On the fast pace of today’s practice “It was cool, Coach Joseph did something different which I had never done before and we got right into redzone today which I think was really smart to save guys legs. I think guys responded to it really well. That was a little further ahead in the installs which was good too so you get guys thinking at the same time. I think it was a really productive day.” He continued, “It’s fast. Things happen fast down there especially with our guys. There’s really tight throws which is interesting getting back. Usually you come back and you’re in the first install and you’re throwing to a bunch of green grass and kind of easing your way into it but down there it’s bang bang, especially with our guys. It’s good to get those reps, early on especially.”

On practicing in front of fans “It’s incredible. We were throwing routes on air and you’d think we won the Super Bowl. It’s cool. It’s awesome to see our fans out there. It’s exciting for us to get back and it’s cool to see them kind of match our excitement getting back that first day.”

On RB Devontae Booker’s injury
“It stinks. I feel bad for him but he’s a tough guy mentally and physically so he’ll be back. I’m not worried about him but that stinks for sure.”

On adjusting to new players along the offensive line
“It’s just different seeing different faces in the huddle and getting everybody mixed in. It’s nice but me, Paxton, and [QB] Kyle [Sloter], we’re rolling in with just about everybody so you’re getting some kind of a sense of familiarity with everybody in that room. Certainly when you’re working different groups and guys are stepping in and out it just takes an adjustment. I think we’re doing just fine there.”

On chemistry inside the quarterback room
“I think we’ve got a really good room. [Quarterback Coach] Coach [Bill] Musgrave is leading the circus in there and he’s doing a good job. We’re really lucky to have him. We’ve got a great room and [Offensive Assistant/Quarterbacks’ Coach] Klint’s [Kubiak] in there helping us out. We’re not hiding information from one another. We’ve got a good thing going and we’re competing. We’re pushing each other. It’s a good deal for us.”

On feeling like he has enough time to practice without fear

“I just think it’d be tough to play with that kind of mentality. You can’t play quarterback with any fear or anything. That’d be a good way to embarrass yourself back there for sure.”  He said on the field, he’s himself. “I try to take it one play at a time and kind of let it rip. When I came into the league, I kind of had that mentality, too. I thought, shoot, I’m halfway out the door anyways so I don’t have much to lose. I think if you take it one play at a time and let it go but being smart at the same time. But for sure I’m just letting it rip.”

On advantages of learning from Musgrave “I think he’s just been around for so long and he’s coached so many different guys that he’s got such a great perspective on things and he’s played too. For me, it’s just being around another coach with a lot of experience and a lot of good experience. It’s just good getting different perspectives from different coaches and seeing what works for you. I think he does a good job of that and kind of figuring out the player and what they need. We’re lucky to have him.”

 

” I think we’ve got a really good room. Coach Musgrave is leading the circus in there and he’s doing a good job. We’re really lucky to have him…We’re not hiding information from one another. We’ve got a good thing going and we’re competing. We’re pushing each other. It’s a good deal for us.”
