Winning you over isn’t going to be easy. Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian knows that.
Ol’ Trev knows a lot of things. Northwestern grad, National Honor Society, dad’s a surgeon, mom’s a nurse, all that. Walt and Colleen didn’t raise a dummy. But he forgets stuff. And forgetting stuff is the best thing about Trevor Siemian, the quarterback. Monday night in front of the largest TV audience (18.9 million for the 2016 finale) and crowd he’s ever played in front of (74,892 at Mile High, several of whom will cop a No. 13 jersey today), Siemian forgot everything.
Forgot about the almost-interception he threw to a Chargers cornerback... then threw at the same cornerback on the next snap. Forgot that Demaryius Thomas dropped a sure first down... then threw at Demaryius Thomas on the next snap. Forgot he got creamed... over and over and over, by Chargers pass rushers, and still got up, again and again.
