The Denver's 'No Fly Zone' beat up the Broncos' offense in Sunday's practice, the first in pads this season at Dove Valley.
"Did I like what I saw? Not really. Both guys had issues today," Joseph said of his offense "I didn't like what I saw today. Honest. They both struggled today."
Joseph was particularly down on how the quarterbacks handled the red zone, telling NFL Network's Terrell Davis on Inside Training Camp Live "offensively we have to get better."
"It was a rough day for the offense today," Joseph said. "The defense came out with great intensity and made some big plays in the red zone, which is huge. On game days that's a 10-point swing. We don't want that for our offense, but defensively it was a good day."
"We want to take them out into the deep water and drown them. We had our minds ready today," Harris said, via Tony Renck of ABC Denver.
The good day for the defense didn't help Siemian or Lynch sneak ahead in the quarterback duel. Joseph intimated he's no further along in the QB evaluation process after both passers struggled to open camp.
"We've got two good young quarterbacks. We can win with both guys," Joseph told Davis on NFL Network. "Who is the best for us? I'm not sure yet. That's why time is so important. Now, time is coming to an end, the next three or four weeks here. So, both guys are putting in work. Both guys want the job. I'm not sure who is best for us right now. Whoever is best for us that is who we are going to play."
Time for either Lynch or Siemian to grab the lead in the quarterback battle is quickly shrinking.
What else we learned from Sunday's training camps:
"That's part of the maintenance," head coach Ron Rivera said of Newton, via the team's official website. "Don't be surprised. It could happen at any practice. It's all just part of the process of him getting back to shape. Five straight days of work, and we saw it, and he went out reluctantly.
"But he still was doing the other stuff he's supposed to be doing, so I'm not concerned at all."
