expect Muhammad to turn into a wrestler real quick

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Browns Official Jerseys . --?Trevor Siemian will start at quarterback for the Denver Broncos?in the Sept. 8 season opener against the Carolina Panthers,?coach Gary Kubiak announced in a team meeting Monday morning.Kubiak made the announcement just before the players broke off into position-group meetings.I think hes earned the right to be our guy, Kubiak said. I go back and look at the body of work throughout the course of the offseason, watch training camp, throughout the preseason, how far hes come. I watch how much hes improved in my opinion, the grasp that he has with what were doing, to me hes earned the right to go out there and be our starter.It is the next step in Siemians staggering offseason journey. The 2015 seventh-round pick -- whose lone snap on the field last season was a kneel-down just before halftime in the Broncos Dec. 20 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers?-- will now succeed Peyton Manning.The last time Siemian started a game, it was for Northwestern on Nov. 22, 2014 at Purdue.Siemian closed the deal Saturday night with his performance in the Broncos preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams. But Kubiak had consistently said it was a body of work that would be at the root of the decision.Siemian looked composed and comfortable as he finished 10-of-17 for 122 yards with a touchdown and an interception against the Rams. It is unclear, for the moment, what Kubiaks plan for the No. 2 quarterback is and what it all means for the near future of Mark Sanchez.Its not that other guys didnt do something, its more how far Trevor has come as a player, Kubiak said.Rookie Paxton Lynch followed Siemian into Saturdays game as the Broncos No. 2 quarterback, and Sanchez did not play. Kubiak had said following the game he would make a decision this week on a starter.Siemian has consistently shown he made the most of his time with Manning in the Broncos run to the Super Bowl win last season. He has been the most consistent player at the position over the last few weeks and is ready to hear his name and the word starter in the same sentence.I think every day he kind of showed us I can do this, Im going to be competitive in this situation and that I believe in myself, Kubiak said. And you just saw him grow every day throughout the course of the offseason and when he came back from the summer he was even better.When asked following Saturdays game if he believed he would be named the starter, Siemian said he was confident but that it was up to Kubiak.Asked if he believed he had done enough to be the starter, Siemian said: I do, but again thats not my call. Ill just try to be the best teammate I can be.According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Broncos will be the first defending Super Bowl champion to start a quarterback with zero career pass attempts in the following seasons opener.Kubiak hinted which way he was leaning in his evaluation of Siemians play after Saturdays game.Im impressed -- I think hes very calm, Kubiak said. I can tell by the way he handles the team in the huddle, hes got control of whats going on. Gets a bad break on the go ball and comes right back and goes down the field. I think what I see is a guy getting better. Austin Corbett Jersey . Thats not a comment on the suspension that banished the Portland Winterhawks general manager and coach from his Western Hockey League teams bench for most of the 2012-13 season. Simeon Thomas Jersey . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year. . In the response filed Wednesday to the complaint by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley, attorneys say the former University of Florida player is invoking his Fifth Amendment right that protects people from incriminating themselves. In a year that already has proved to be massive for the UFC, with one major card after another, UFC 205 on Nov. 12 at Madison Square Garden in New York looks to be the biggest and most important of them all. In honor of such a marquee event, is providing dedicated previews to all 13 bouts on the card, breaking down whats at stake and projecting who will win, along with quotes and statistics for each fighter.Welterweights: Vicente Luque (10-5-1) vs. Belal Muhammad (10-1)Odds as of Nov. 2: Luque -167; Muhammad +134Whats at stake?Luque returns to home away from homeLuque, a member of the Blackzilians, was all too happy to accept a late invitation to UFC 205.The 24-year-old stepped in for Lyman Good, who was removed from the event after being flagged for a potential doping violation. Luque was born in New Jersey and lived there until the age of 6. He and his Brazilian mother moved to Brasilia, while his father, who is from Chile, remained in New Jersey.Luque considers Brasilia home, but he has regularly visited relatives in the New York area his entire life. He trains out of Blackzilians in South Florida. In his short four-fight UFC career, he already has fought in Brazil and Florida.Part of my heart is in Chile, Brazil and the U.S., Luque said. Its why I talk three languages after my fights. I have fans in Chile.Ive never been inside Madison Square Garden. Ive taken the train into Penn Station but only seen it from the outside. This is a very big deal for me fighting in New York. Its definitely not easy to make weight on three weeks notice, but my body is used to it.Reality show redemption for MuhammadLast year, the UFC aired a special edition of its reality show The Ultimatee Fighter, in which two South Florida gyms (Blackzilians and American Top Team) went head-to-head. Browns Jerseys Store. It was a nice change of pace for the 21st installment of TUF, but it also meant there were no tryouts. Any UFC welterweight hopeful who didnt train with one of those teams was out of luck.Muhammad was one of those affected. The Chicago-based fighter watched the series from his couch -- and he wasnt always impressed with what he saw.I sat there saying, Why did these guys get this opportunity and I didnt? Muhammad said. Just because they were on one of those two teams. I watched the show and said, I could beat that guy. I could beat that guy. I could beat that guy.Worth mentioning: Luque was a contestant on that season of TUF.Statistical comparisonLuque: 10-5 record (3-1 UFC); three-fight win streakLuque: Nine of 10 fights won by stoppage (four by knockout, five by submission)Muhammad: 10-1 record (1-1 UFC); six of 10 wins by decisionMuhammad: five takedowns in two UFC fightsBreakdownLuque offers a nice replacement for the UFC, as his fights tend to produce plenty of action.Hes a heavy hitter, with a fight-changing right hand and a solid repertoire of knees and elbows from his Muay Thai background. Hes definitely more dangerous than Muhammad, but he was absolutely bottled up in his UFC debut against Michael Graves.Muhammad is a busy boxer-wrestler who mixes in both attributes well enough. On the feet, hell look to score and move. If Luque lands that right hand, expect Muhammad to turn into a wrestler real quick.PREDICTION:?Luque by first-round TKO. Cheap Jerseys 2018 Cheap Jerseys Online Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap Jerseys 2020 NFL Jerseys From China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys From China ' ' '
