Please vote for Quinn this time

The Denver Broncos won’t be trading Tim Tebow anytime soon unless they are morons.

Since they’re going with Orton (did you hear the news? Kyle Cuckooman Orton won the QB battle! Some battle that was, wasn’t it?) Since they’re going with Cuckooman, the real quarterback to trade right now is Brady Quinn.

Brady Quinn’s stock is sort of high right now because of his fairly decent preseason play and the fact that he “practices well.” Tebow haters in the press are also puffing up Quinn to buttress their stance that Tebow is a joke and doesn’t belong in the NFL. They desperately want to be right, because they are on record stating Tebow will be an unequivocal failure in the NFL.

Let’s get something straight here. Brady Quinn is inconsistent at best. He’s no starter in this league. Let’s pray that a team like the Bengals will think he really has something to trade for.

It’s unbelievable how some are praising the preseason play of a first round bust who’s been in the league FIVE YEARS. That’s right, five years.

” Oh no, he’s changed this season. ” Yeah maybe he’s more confident, maybe he has a little swagger but to say he’s now worthy of his first round status? That is a joke. We’ve seen all we’re going to see out of him, he even did well with Cleveland for a little while and then he crashed right back down to earth. Cleveland made a big mistake shipping him off? Sorry, don’t think so.

Kyle Orton is in his seventh year, Quinn is in his fifth season. Yet we’re going to kick Tim Tebow to the curb in his second year? After three actual starts where he played pretty well? What a laugh.

Based on his limited time, based on his limited play, Tim Tebow looks every bit as good or better as Orton or Quinn did in that stage of their careers.

The reason I am pissed off? Let me count the ways. First off, we were all set to clear the deck for Tebow early on. We were going to clear the deck like they cleared Steve DeBerg out of Denver for John Elway. Steve DeBerg, a journeyman who was surely more technically sound than Elway. We cleared the deck and gave Elway the best chance to succeed.

Imagine if we resigned Deberg during training camp later that year?

“Oh by the way John, you’ll now be fighting it out for the backup spot.”

“And furthermore, it will be a fair competition, we’ll give you a quarter and some change to play in the preseason.”

What a laugh. The kid goes from the starter to possibly third string just like that. Doesn’t even get a whiff of the first team. I know, I know people will say “Wait til next year, Tebow needs to develop.”

Yeah, Tebow needs to develop: with the first team, he needs the snaps. But no matter. They’re screwing with this kids psyche.  This crap the front office is pulling doesn’t breed loyalty. Now the national narrative is Tebow the “Third stringer who could be cut or traded.”

What a laugh. It doesn’t help this kid’s psyche.

The unfairness to this kid is amazing. Tebow should stop before he even starts according to some sea cucumbers with half a brain in their heads.

Kyle Orton barely completed over fifty percent of his passes his first year in the league.  Fifty one to be exact. Tebow can’t play in this league though because based on three regular season games (where he played PRETTY WELL) he didn’t complete fifty percent of his passes. How about nine touchdowns and thirteen picks for Orton in his first season? Eh? That’s not pretty. He must be a total bust.

Total unfairness to this kid, it’s unbelievable. The front office’s mismanagement of this quarterback situation is partly to blame. We go from starter to (possibly) third string, what a joke.

Talking up a five year player Brady Quinn as if he’s incredible. He’s not dynamic, he’s not gonna make big plays with his arms or his legs. He’ll be inconsistent, throw picks in the worst spots.

People are banking on the Broncos offensive line to be one of the best in the league to bail out our top two immobile, unspectacular QB’s. Sorry, ain’t there yet.

Hopefully, hopefully the Broncos will do the right thing and let Orton walk after this season. Some people think we will resign him if he makes the Pro Bow–I wouldn’t. I’d quite honestly rather see just Quinn and Tebow battle it out next preseason.

Even if you were to build up the offensive line, you’re not gonna do damage in the playoffs with Kyle Orton.

Is that the offense you want? Do we want the Kyle Orton offense for the next five years? You’ve got to be kidding me.

A very astute Carolina Panthers fan told me this Fox plays not to lose. He doesn’t play to win. Tebow takes chances, he makes things happen, he plays to win. That may not bode well in his relationship with this coach.

Michael Vick plays to win. John Elway played to win. Vick threw three picks last week. That sounds like something Elway would have done.

Vick threw three picks but nobody is making a stink about it. They know his game. They know what he can do in the regular season. Running, gunning, making things happen. Vick is one of the top fantasy football players because of his ability to make things happen. Some homeless man with no computer won the ESPN Fantasy Football Challenge. He chose Tebow the last three weeks.

Smart guy.

Quarterbacks like that will throw picks, but with their dynamic ability, with their intangibles they will win the games despite the errors. They make up for their errors with incredible plays. They do more to help the team than hurt it in the end.

If you were to ask me what I think Tebow’s ceiling is, I would say it’s Michael Vick. Some compare Steve Young to Tebow, but I don’t think Tebow will ever be the passer Young was. Vick has gotten better passing from the pocket, but he’s still not incredibly accurate.

The Broncos are sitting on a kid who’s ceiling may be greater than Kyle Orton or Brady Quinn. Tebow’s performances in games haven’t been disasters. He’s played pretty well when we’ve given him the chance. He looked decent in preseason, he played well in the last three games and he had a good outing in the Dallas game. Last week was a so what performance at the end of the game, but Tebow did something there that both Orton and Quinn could not.

Let’s say the Broncos were pinned down on their own twenty, only up by a field goal with only a couple minutes to go. Third and eight. Hell, third and four. Who’s gonna get that first down? If Orton or Quinn is in there, you better damn well hope somebody gets open. If nobody’s open they’ll either take the sack or throw it in the stands. Timmy Teebs would bootleg, throw it or run for it like he usually does. Orton and Quinn ain’t gonna make those plays. Neither are elite NFL quarterbacks either. Sorry.

Wouldn't that be more exciting Monday Night?

8-8 with Orton or 6-10 with Tebow? I don’t buy it. I’d say 6-10 Orton and Tebow 8-8 because he can throw well enough, make some things happen and rattle defenses in hard spots with his running.

Tebow has played well when he’s actually been able to play in games. All I hear about is how he doesn’t look good in practice. Some joke that is.

Some say Tebow’s situation may be Steve Young’s situation. That’s a possibility. If this coach really doesn’t like Tebow and loves the steady mediocrity of Kyle Orton they could very well trade Tebow in the future. That Panthers fan may be correct, that Fox’s offense simply plays not to lose behind a good defense. Fox may not want any part of Tebow, it’s possible.

It’s absolutely stupid, but it’s possible.

Tell me how anyone can truthfully say, based on his play in games, how anyone can say Tim Tebow is a bust and a bad pick?

I don’t give a rip what he does in practice.

I said around last June, I said if there’s some strange turn of events, if we’re thrust into some weird stasis, some awful bizzaro world and Fox starts Orton… I said Fox, you better win with him.

Kyle Orton is Tom Brady

Give me a break...

Nothing that this rookie QB has done on the field points to him being terrible and out of his league out there.Plus, I don’t believe we have the team to carry Kyle Orton into ten plus wins. Yeah, we’ll start off 2-0 this season, maybe, and then the dropoff will be huge. Sorry to burst your bubble, but get ready for more of the same: The Kyle Orton Show. Are you happy season ticket holders?

Kyle Orton was great in preseason last year.

Top five in passing, top seven in total offense. Yeah he was killing it like the Broncos version of “Tom Brady.”

We’re stuck spinning our wheels, like Bayless said we’re spinning our wheels, the future be damned.

Credit to Woody Paige, Paige who predicts absolute woe and disaster every year Kyle Orton starts. He’s been right on this one.

“Cut Tim Tebow,” “Sign Orton long term,” “Brady Quinn is God.”

How did we get here? It’s nothing Tim Tebow did or didn’t do. It’s piss poor management, that’s what.

Doesn’t help this kid’s psyche either does it. Now word is he’s not as good as “Brady Quinn.”

What a friggen joke.

Yeah, we could trade Tebow after this year, and it would be absolutely stupid.

That would likely be the work of some pigheaded coach who plays not to lose.

John Fox better win with Kyle Orton. God forbid he has to put in Brady Quinn in the regular season too–I’ll be laughing my balls off.

Tell you something, when the losses start piling up, I will demand an apology for squandering the season. Squandering it on journeymen. I will demand resignations for this piss poor management.

The future is Qwinn.

Piss poor. And that’s the bottom line, cause P.P. Dublinski said so.

As I’m writing this, I hear Merril Hoge will debate Adam Schefter on whether the Broncos should get rid of Tebow. Hoge actually made one good point, if you pay a rookie QB 8 million that QB should be the starter in year two. Instead, he’s riding pine. We were about to do the right thing at the beginning of the season. Instead we got a promising kid getting bashed, trashed and probably losing his confidence.

Thanks front office, you created this debacle. This mistake. I suppose they’ll blame it on McDaniels?

Maybe they’ll just blame Tebow.

Everyone knows Cam Newton “isn’t ready.” But guess what? Newton will be starting.

Thanks for the fiasco Fox and friends, and in the end, you better be the ones who are right when you switched gears on a dime. You better win with this Orton, that’s all I’m gonna say.
