season. this puts siemian in the drivers seat to start september 8 against carolina. but kubiak did not announce siemian was the starter in the regular season opener, i think after siemian played well but threw that pick-6, he didn't quite do enough to get the job permanently. he wants to see him play one more week and also, look for paxton lynch, the rookie, to get some first team reps a the competition for siemian, not mark sanchez. >> we are never going to complain about security lines at dia again, not after seeing these photos from our cheryl preheim and matt renoux as they tried to leave rio, brazil. them and everyone else after the olympics ended last night. matt tweeted this is the single busiest day in the rio arment
