ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos knew Peyton Manning was the unquestioned starter entering the last four training camps.A week into this years camp, the reigning Super Bowl champions havent named a No. 1 guy, and the battle to be the starter will likely continue at least through the first preseason game at Chicago on Aug. 11.Mark Sanchez hasnt put distance between himself and Trevor Siemian and rookie Paxton Lynch. All three have been inconsistent, following good stretches with some poor play.Theyre all doing good stuff and then theres struggles at times, coach Gary Kubiak said after Thursday mornings practice. Its very, very competitive. I want to put a number of throws on each one of them (against the Bears). Thats going to have a lot to do with a decision.Denvers quarterback situation took a hit in the spring when Mannings backup, Brock Osweiler, signed with Houston after Manning retired. The Broncos traded for Sanchez later in the spring and took Lynch with the 26th pick in the draft.Siemian was the third-string quarterback for Denver last season. He was active for six games as Osweilers backup while Manning was hurt and got into one game.Sanchez was brought in to stabilize the position but he has not played well enough in training camp to be named the clear-cut starter.You have to earn everything you receive in this league, said Sanchez, who is entering his ninth NFL season.Sanchez has tried to develop chemistry with his receiving corps.

I got smacked around a bit early on and we came back and finished pretty well.The three quarterbacks had stronger practices Thursday. Sanchez had some good completions, including a throw to wide receiver Demaryius Thomas in the corner of the end zone during one drill and he found tight end Virgil Green in the end zone a couple of times.Siemian also hooked up with Green and Thomas for touchdowns, and Lynch ran one in.With the situation still unresolved, the leadership role has fallen to third-year center Matt Paradis. Kubiak praised Paradis after Thursdays practice and said he has helped keep the offense together.Matts becoming a really good player, Kubiak said. Hes a leader of our offensive football team as this quarterback deal continues to develop.Game notes The Broncos cut WR Marlon Brown and signed OL Sam Carlson. ...
