Denver Broncos: Chad Kelly’s promotion the end of Paxton Lynch?

NFL preseason roundup: Vikings QBs lead rout of Broncos

This throw by Kirk Cousins is exactly why the Vikings signed him

Unfortunately, things have panned out that way with Kelly, who was taken in the seventh round a year ago, being the second man on the depth chart. We know we're going to have a lot of teams coming after us because we were the No. 1 defensive team. Zimmer says he plans on shuffling guys around and trying a bunch of different combinations.

Meanwhile Kelly completed 14 of 21 passes for 177 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

His quarterback rating of 104.7 was more than quadruple Lynch's quarterback rating of 22.2. Fans were also chanting Kelly's name as he threw two touchdown passes and an interception in relief of Lynch.

White House slams Omarosa Manigault Newman's new book as 'riddled with lies'
Another White House official confirmed that Manigault Newman brought Cohen into the White House and was later rebuked for it. Omarosa went on to say she was "disturbed" knowing the person she thought she knew was a racist.

"Obviously disappointed", Joseph said of Lynch's reaction to the news. "It's an opportunity to show or put your resume out there that if for some reason we feel we have 'X" amount of players at this position and we have to let you go, you have an opportunity to get picked up by your performance and how you play". He understands that. It's a performance league, and everything we do is graded and it's counted.

"It's more about what Chad has done". Chad's played well, he's played with poise, he's played with confidence. It's been that way since the spring. "It's his turn to the be two". And it's Chad Freakin' Kelly of all people.

"It's no different", Joseph said. "I think when you go into a controlled environment against another opponent, you are looking at matchups and where your players are". The same with Paxton. We're here to get better. It's not over. We're still competing, but the depth chart is fluid, and it rewards guys who are playing well.

The country's Finance Minister will seek to reassure around 1,000 global investors in a teleconference scheduled for Thursday. Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan gestures prior to delivering a speech in Ankara , Turkey, Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2018.

Kelly, who deferred the credit for his promotion to his teammates, doesn't seem like he's going to shy away from that competition.

Lynch signed a four-year, $9,476,296 contract with the Broncos that runs through next season so the team is either going to have a very expensive third-stringer this season or they might just want to consider cutting their losses as well as him. "I've just got to continue to work on it and progress, and hopefully it will pay off". "When bullets are flying, make sure you execute".
