Tebow Shines in Broncos Loss to the Raiders 39-23

Sunday, December 19th, 2010

I couldn’t script this one any better folks. Tim Tebow plays well, he threw a great ball, nice arc, accurate and with plenty of zip. He also showed he could take the NFL hits running with the football (like some mental defectives said at the beginning of the season). Throwing motion be damned, this talk of throwing motion is a joke. Doesn’t matter one bit as long as the ball is getting where it needs to go and the offense is moving.

Tebow NFL Debut

Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow (15) passes in front of Oakland Raiders defensive end Lamarr Houston (99) in the second quarter of an NFL football game in Oakland, Calif. , Sunday, Dec. 19, 2010.

Ultimately, the Broncos lost the game (which is good) and it’s also good because it wasn’t on Tebow. Not hardly. It was our defense, namely the defensive line that screwed the proverbial pooch out there. The offensive line wasn’t so great either. The playcalling was way too conservative for a 3 and 10, make that 3 and 11 team.

Some of these people have the audacity to blame our ground game woes on the running backs. What a joke, you see the penetration these teams get on our offensive line? It’s disgusting. Peyton Hillis wouldn’t do what he does in Cleveland running behind our line, no way no how. We suck at run blocking.

As usual, our defensive line can’t put pressure on the quarterback. Our defense makes Jason Campbell look like a Pro Bowler out there.

I’m not upset about the loss. I want that high pick and it’s looking better than ever baby. The Lions, Bills, Dallas, Bengals and Panthers all won. I love it. I want that high pick for multiple reasons.

First, it’s a chance at drafting a star player. Preferably on the offensive line or defensive line. People say if Champ Bailey leaves, then we absolutely must replace him with our first round pick. Really? What does that change? More of the same I say. We already have Champ Bailey out there at corner and we can’t rush the QB and hell if we can’t stop the run either.

First priority this offseason is a top flight free agent and a top draft pick. One on the offensive line and one on the defensive line. This team needs help and that top pic certainly won’t hurt.

Our second round pick also benefits if the Broncos continue to lose. I want options baby. We have two second rounders this year and we’ll have options, we could even trade that high second rounder for a first rounder the next year.

Had some good penalties out there today, more of the same there.

I’m worried about the Texans game though, I’m worried we’ll win that one.

Broncos 17 Raiders 17 at the Half and Tebow’s “Too Slow”

Sunday, December 19th, 2010

You see that Broncos quarterback out there, the one that runs too slow for the NFL? Hell we scored more points in the first half than we did in last week’s game. I don’t care about this kid’s delivery, I don’t care that he runs, it’s all about scoring points and I don’t care how he gets it done.

Not a bad outing for Tebow so far. So much for Tebow being a bust, he may never be a great NFL quarterback, that remains to be seen, but he’s certainly got talent and upside. They’re being very conservative with him, I guess that’s smart, but we’re 3 and 10, may as well play and let the chips fall. These little dink and dunk passes ain’t working because we can’t run, we can’t run with the running back that is.

Buffalo won, Detroit won, Dallas won, Cincinnati won and even Carolina won. Unbelievable. This gives us some good cushion in the draft, so I don’t mind it so much if we did win this game, it’s the Texans game that worries me, that team may have capitulated.

P.S. If the Broncos Win Tomorrow…

Saturday, December 18th, 2010

I won’t be upset. I know I’ve said I want the Broncos to lose the rest of their games, but if they won (which is possible–it’s Oakland for crying out loud) I won’t be pissed. It has more to do with my disgust of this opponent. That’s right, I don’t hate the Chargers as much as I hate the Raiders and that sad excuse for a city they call Oakland. We better lose the next two though regardless.

By the way, that Ron Rivera might not be a bad coach for the Broncos. The man fields a defense wherever he goes and if we acquire him it hurts the Chargers. Only problem is Norv could very well get the axe if the Chargers are one and done in the playoffs. That Rivera also has an intimate knowledge of the team we must defeat in the AFC west. The Broncos need to build a team that can beat the Chargers, that should be our #1 goal.

Tebow Starting While His Idiotic Detractors Abound

Saturday, December 18th, 2010

We could finally witness Tim Tebow starting tomorrow against the Raiders.

Getty Images - Denver October 24: Quarterback Tim Tebow #15 of the Denver Broncos warms up before taking on the Oakland Raiders at INVESCO Field at Mile High on October 24, 2010 in Denver, Colorado.

I had no doubt we’d start Tebow the last two games of this travesty of a season but this just accelerates Tebow Time. Not starting the first round pick in the final two games of a losing season is nothing short of stupid, but I don’t put anything past this flailing organization as of late.

Unbelievable, some of these NFL pundits. They declare Tebow a “total bust” before he’s even started one regular season NFL game. They aren’t willing to give him anything resembling a chance.

They’re willing to give Colt McCoy a chance.

They’re willing to give John Skelton a chance.

Tim Tebow Denver Broncos

But Tebow? Oh no, we hate him and McDaniels picked him–he’s surely a bust.

I have no doubts that some of these losers like Dan Marino and ESPN’s Colin Cowherd (fitting last name), I have no doubts some of these kinds of mental defectives hate Tim Tebow personally.

Some of these people hate his guts, they hate what he stands for and they want him to fail. These malformed goobers belch forth the most inept comments that clearly point to defunctitudinal brain deficiencies on a scale hitherto never before seen.

To some, before he even takes a real NFL snap, Tebow is a bust.

I have to say I wasn’t wild about picking Tebow in the first round of the draft. I figured we’d use him in gadget plays and short yardage though–which we did–but not as often as I’d like. Say what you want about those gadget plays, they were more often successful than not and no, Kyle Orton could not make the same goal line runs into the end zone. Orton moves with the agility of a one legged goat and while he’s a tough guy he’s not nearly as durable as Tebow. Tebow’s vision while running is above average, he finds the holes and if there ain’t none he wisely bounces it outside.

I bellyached about the pick, no doubt, but I am not one to label someone a bust before they even play on the field. Months passed and we finally saw Tebow in a few preseason games playing with the first and second string offense.

A lot was made of the hit Tebow took from a Cincinnati player while running for a touchdown. Tebow took a helmet to the ribs–an injury that kept him from playing a few games–and goobers came out of the woodwork stating Tebow can’t take NFL hits. They said Tebow is stupid for taking on NFL caliber defenders and believed he should not have punched in that touchdown in order to protect himself.

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

Can you imagine what they’d say if he shied away from contact in that play? “Tebow is scared to mix it up with NFL defenders.” “Tebow can’t get it done in the NFL like he did in college…” Yaddah, yaddah and other assorted BS.

ABC owned ESPN showed a montage of Tebow’s preseason highlights: They showed an interception, a fumbled snap and finally the hit on the goal line where he injured his ribs.

While mental defectives–many of which just want to see Tebow fail–while these people harped on the bad, people with acuity saw a rookie QB who looked confident, lead the offense to score and out-shined Brady Quinn.

Morons like Trent Dilfer analyzed one play. One play. One play where a defender was able to put pressure on Tebow and knock down his pass. The analyst claimed Tebow’s “slow throwing motion” accounted for the defender’s ability to knock the pass down.

One play.

One play and Tebow can’t perform in this league. Nevermind the touchdowns, nevermind the accurate throws. Oh no, one play and it’s all she wrote for Tebow.

I was impressed with Tebow’s preseason performance. He threw the ball accurately, he threw with zip, he looked confident and quite honestly he looked miles ahead of Brady Quinn. His long ball got from point A to point B quicker than Orton, it had less of an arc than Orton’s passes.

Tim Tebow Broncos

This video, (warning music NSFW) the first half, tells the other side of the story. So much for a guy that is hopeless and has no chance in the NFL due to his throwing motion. Yes Tebow threw a couple picks in the preseason too, but so did Kyle Orton.

Throwing motion be damned.

I am sick and tired of the throwing motion nonsense. Tebow is not going to change that throwing motion, that’s not really going to change. They claimed they tweaked it or whatever, I don’t know and I don’t care. If this kid moves the offense and scores touchdowns then throwing motion be damned.

Myself as well as many others want this kid to start so we can see what we have. Mike Shanahan is doing the same thing, benching McNabb and playing his second and third QB’s to “see what he has.”

It’s a smart move. We know what we have in Kyle Orton. It’s imperative to see what Tebow flashes out there. He doesn’t have to win these games, he doesn’t have to play all world. What he has to show are flashes, flashes of brilliance. John Elway had a horrible first year. Miscreants from the microwave generation would probably label the young Elway a bust in his first year. As bad as his rookie year sucked, he showed flashes of brilliance and you knew there was hope for his future development.

Tebow will probably struggle and we should lose even if he does play reasonably well, he’s a rookie QB for crying out loud. Oh, but that won’t matter to the mental defectives who already claim he can’t even play in this league. They’ll make stupid excuses even if he does play well.  The Broncos should use this opportunity to evaluate Tebow’s overall play in regular season games. His overall play (not win or lose) and whether he shows flashes of brilliance out there–it should help in determining whether Tebow has a future with this franchise. It’s important stuff, we just got rid of the head coach and I mean, the way I want things to go down, we’ll be looking at the second pick in the draft. We’ll be sitting on a franchise quarterback. Should we take him?

Let’s find out.

Shanahan Vindicating McDaniels

Saturday, December 18th, 2010

Let’s see here, DOnovan McNabb benched–like I said he’d be out of the league in two years, looks like it’ll be sooner than that.

Shanahan benches McNabb and he’s going with Rex Grossman for now. They will likely get rid of McNabb since the Redskins (smartly) added a clause that will void his insane contract if they cut him at the end of this season.

Redskins Pro Bowl DT Albert Haynesworth is acting like a Brandon Marshall prima donna and they will certainly trade him away to some other team.

Mike Shanahan’s first season with the Redskins continues on a lackluster 5 and 8 course with no playoff berth in site.

Moving forward, Shanahan will evaluate his quarterbacks and will look to this year’s draft to pick a QB he can groom while Rex Grossman takes over.

Where have we heard this story before, eh? Redskins getting rid of their top talent? Using a former Chicago quarterback as a stepping stone while they groom Shanny’s young hand picked QB?

Sounds an awful lot like a new coach and his rebuilding process doesn’t it?

I wonder if Shanahan will get fired next year if the Redskins are 4 and 9 at this point in the season? Will they fire him in the midst of his molding the team, rebuilding the Redskins? Should they?

I didn’t think McDaniels would get fired this year, I figured he had one more year and then it was do or die. Instead, this organization, this town couldn’t handle the truth and kowtowed to a bunch of whining goobers.

They couldn’t handle the truth, the Broncos have been mediocre for years and we needed wholesale change. Two years wasn’t long enough to right this ship. Just like they prematurely got rid of Bobby Knight in Ohio, Denver couldn’t stand the truth, and they couldn’t stand a winner telling them what to do.

I heard the Broncos locker room grew into a more and more negative place as this season went on and the losses piled up. McDaniels supposedly rode the coaches and the players harder with every loss.

Oh, I suppose we should make the 3-9 Broncos locker room Happy Fun Time. Bring someone in with a “positive attitude.” A lot good that did us? Eh?

What a joke, these coaches, these players deserved berating, this McDaniels probably wanted this staff and these players to rue the day… Rue the day they lost another game!

Some derelict rat of a coach couldn’t stand being harassed by McDaniels and turned on him. Couldn’t stand a berating from a young guy with three Super Bowl rings.

Peter King, Michael Lombardi were right: We were rebuilding, retooling and this town couldn’t stomach the painful transition.

Straight Shootin’ and a Tale of Two Brandons

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

I maintain McDaniels will be a genius: for some other team. Michael Lombardi and Peter King are correct, this town couldn’t stomach the rebuilding process.

Additionally, the incredible graphic below should stick a fork in any Brandon Marshall trade lamentations. The audacity of these pundits to claim Marshall was some huge loss and woe to their faulty assumptions that he is “extremely productive” with Miami. On top of all this, Lloyd isn’t a bad apple with two out of three strikes already gone like that prima donna goober down in Miami.

I Want the Broncos to Pick Second in 2011

Monday, December 13th, 2010

Screw the fifth pick in the draft, I want the second pick.

I’m beginning to like this Studesville, he looked clueless out there in the Cardinals game. I do feel sorry for him, he finally gets a head coaching gig but some broken down team is representing him.

Studesville

Studaville

This Sunday was the first time in history PP Dublinski cheered when the Broncos got a penalty. I wasn’t emotionally invested in this game, but you see all them mistakes early in the game when they still had a chance? One step forward, two steps back. Same story all season long. Injuries, rookies, penalties, inconsistencies and  bad luck all amounted to a crap year.

I keep seeing these articles pop up where “NFL sources” and “league executives” claim the Broncos were doomed from the start when we “mishandled” the Huckdort trade. What a joke, that was a positive, I am so glad we didn’t commit to that gooned out fool. You see that New England game? That Bears team got a cold dose of reality.  That team is the worst 9-4 team in the league,  their only win against a decent team was Philadelphia. Hucky’s like Orton, they both need a good supporting cast to be successful. That dort ain’t worth no fifty million plus, that’s for damn sure.

I am thrilled the Broncos currently have the third pick in the 2011 draft, but now I want the second pick!

Either we draft someone there or we trade down and get a cache of picks. Either way it’s a good thing. I look to the grand promise of the future! All Hail Studaville! Many thanks for his clueless nature!

On the subject of the future, Champ Bailey can walk–too much money. Daniel Graham must go–too much money and he doesn’t do enough. Anyone claiming Daniel Graham is a great blocker, well we can just convert a damn tackle or pick a tight end late in the draft to block. Daniel Graham is barely mediocre when it comes to receiving. Chris Kuper’s spot needs an upgrade, same with Ryan McBean. I’ve seen enough of Correll Buckhalter too. Thanks for your service guys, but that’s a wrap.

Tebow should start the last two home games, that should be a given. If he does not start the last two games, then either this organization is clueless or they think he’s a bust and will soon ship him off to Buffalo or Jacksonville.

I’m a little worried about Tebow starting after next weekend, I’m worried because I might want him to win if he’s starting. Hopefully Tebow will play well and the defense will choke and get the blame for the losses. That’s not such a bad outcome.

Me So Happy

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

Huckdort dorts and gets embarrassed.

Buffalo and Detroit win and Denver loses. I was worried we’d win today, the only game that worries me now is the Texans game, they often don’t show up to play. Even if we only win that one game, things are looking good for the draft.

You see that Jay Feely? He had a career day out there. I’m happy for him, he seems like a regular guy.

Broncos had a few good penalties out there, that late hit from Syd’Quan was a nice gift.

The most exciting moment in the Broncos game? The thirty seconds whenTebow warmed up.

By the way, I wouldn’t get mad at Studesville for not playing Tebow, it has to be Bowlen’s call.

I can see some reason to start Orton, as bad as things are he’s got shot at the Pro Bowl. Pro Bowl voting ends the 20th though, so if Tebow isn’t starting the last two home games it is nothing short of a travesty.

I’m sure it’s Bowlen’s call, it’s not on Studesville.

Tebow damn well better start those last two games. John Skelton? John Skelton, a damn fifth round pick gets to play? He didn’t look too bad either. A fifth round pick is playing yet “Tebow ain’t ready yet?”

If he’s not ready and doesn’t play those last two home games, I’d rather have him traded and draft a quarterback with that top pick.
