If you come in this league, and you're comfortable with being a backup, something's wrong.

Some suggestions for you :

What I'm trying to do is maximize every day.

My job is to protect the football and score points and lead this offense on drives to score points.

If I am ever the starter of the Denver Broncos, I want it to be because I earned it.

I have a mentality of not worrying about what people say about me, good or bad. That's not what I'm putting my energy into.

I play very, very emotional. That's just my style.

I had a tremendous one season playing for Coach Kubiak, and I have nothing but great things to say about him as a person and a coach.

I've always approached the game, going back to when I got drafted in 2012 to Denver, like I was going to be the starter. That's how you have to prepare, whether you are first string, second string or third string, because you never know when something is going to happen to the guy in front of you.

We all know that the NFL is the best of the best, and there's great competition across the board, so any time you're hurt or something like that, and another guy gets his opportunity, he's going to try to make the most of it.

Every quarterback feels like he has something to prove.

Obviously it happens very fast on the field during the game; if anything, it's more of a feel. You feel when the pocket is collapsing around you. You feel when someone is close to you. It is a split-second decision.

Any competitor would be frustrated in that moment... but it certainly made sense what Coach Kubiak did for the playoff run. I got replaced by Peyton Manning... I think we all know who is going to play in the game.

For Mr. Elway to take me in the second round and show that trust that he has in me and the upside he thinks I have, I want to go out and there and prove him right. I want to be able to have him look back 10 years from now, 15 years from now, and have him be very proud about that selection and let him know that he did make the right selection.

I have great respect for Greg Knapp, who was my quarterbacks coach in Denver for three years. He taught me so much about playing quarterback in the NFL and made me a better football player.

I'm very thankful; I'm very appreciative for everything that the Denver Broncos organization has done for me.
