Trevor Siemian has struggled mightily in his last few outings, so the Denver Broncos are turning to Brock Osweiler.
Siemian threw three interceptions in a 29-19 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.
Coming in to make your first start of the season against the 7-1 Eagles may be hard, but Osweiler has handled more hard environments and greater pressure.
Joseph also clarified Paxton Lynch won't be under consideration because the second-year quarterback is just now coming back from a two-month shoulder injury.
Nine Dismembered Bodies, Severed Heads Found in Man's Flat in Japan
Takahiro Shiraishi , 27, has confessed to killing the victims and cutting them up, a police spokesman said. The police arrested Shiraishi, whose occupation is unknown, on an initial charge of discarding a body.
After losing four of their last five games, it's clear the Broncos are desperate at this point if they're willing to make the switch to Osweiler at quarterback with the intention of hopefully providing the necessary spark on offense.
The results, Joseph said, simply haven't been good enough.
"When you watch Trevor, even last night, he made three terrible interceptions, I mean horrific decisions, with those three he threw last night", Joseph said.
Osweiler guided the Broncos to a 5-2 mark in 2015 as he filled in for an injured Peyton Manning.
Buffalo Bills trade for Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin
Being reunited with his former coach and the presence of a run game with LeSean McCoy could help Benjamin get going this year. The Buffalo Bills beat the trade deadline to secure the services of wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin for a pair of draft picks.
The Broncos drafted Osweiler with the 57th-overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft, and the sixth-year player returned to Denver in early September as teams across the league submitted their roster cuts.
That was when Osweiler signed back with the Broncos.
About 20 months ago, members of the Denver Broncos were hoisting the Lombardi trophy over their heads to celebrate a Super Bowl title, while the Eagles were preparing to start anew under recently introduced head coach Doug Pederson. As for what the Eagles' defense should expect, let's just hope Osweiler comes out a little rusty, and shows similarities of the quarterback that struggled all of a year ago with the Texans.
Osweiler came to Denver after being let go by the Cleveland Browns, and said at the time of his signing with the Broncos that he told his agent to get him to the Broncos no matter what it took. "When you've lost three games in a row and you've had the turnovers like we've had them. that's not good".
