What’s the cause of this nightmare quarterback scenario brewing in Denver? What’s with the fans booing, billboarding and chanting for a certain marginalized quarterback?

Don’t blame Tebow.

Don’t blame Orton.

Don’t blame the fans.

Elway Fox Tebow

That’s right. Blame Elway, Fox and Xanders. Blame the entire Broncos management for piss poor decision making.

Piss. Poor.

At the beginning of training camp these clowns gave the players and the fans every indication that Kyle Orton would be traded. Brandon Lloyd started practicing for his new quarterback, stating he’d have to get used to the balls coming from every which way due to an erratic rookie QB.

The Broncos were about to trade Kyle Orton and then they made a huge, a huge mistake. It didn’t happen.

Actually, Orton may also deserve some of the blame. According to the Miami Herald, Orton wasn’t satisfied with the Dolphins offer, supposedly he wanted a longer, bigger contract.

If that’s the case, he should have known better. He could have helped himself by taking a one year deal and reuniting with Brandon Marshall. He should have seen this controversy brewing from a hundred miles away.

The Denver Broncos management should have seen it too.

Kyle Orton

"Orton could be the Tom Brady of the AFC West." - Some rube.

After what seemed like one or two “practices,” the Broncos decided to double down and gamble the house on the game managing, play not to lose Orton/Quinn offense. Apparently the coach believed the Broncos would play great defense, they would run the football well and he believed he would win with the unspectacular yet steady veteran Kyle Orton.

"Trade Gaffney Now"

I was here, rising up from the sea cucumbers and moronic mollusks, I was here all along telling you this team didn’t have the talent to do any of that. I could see failure from miles away. We’re largely the same team as last year except we improved the pass rush. Maybe improved safety. We absolutely gave away a good receiver in Jabar Gaffney for absolutely nothing. Absolute turd. We didn’t even get a player who could make the team in return. That’s great management? We drafted a right tackle who seems to be a good run blocker at times. We signed an aging running back.

The Broncos didn’t draft a defensive tackle this year and when free agency ensued we grabbed a couple injury prone castoffs for our incredible run stopping defensive line.

This team isn’t very good, we don’t have the personnel to play great defense, run the ball well and protect an immobile stork who dinks and dunks down the field. Apparently John Fox thought otherwise despite fielding largely the same personnel as last year. Apparently Elway is all in too. Apparently the morons at the Denver Post like Mike Klis, Dave Krieger and Jeff Legwold bought into this insane ponzi scheme as well. All offseason long we heard them spew about how great the seven year journeyman Kyle Orton is despite his atrocious win loss record, we also endured their glowing praise of Brady Quinn, a five year veteran who we don’t need to evaluate any further. Quinn is woefully inconsistent, always has been always will be. His play on the field in actual games over four seasons speaks for itself. Same goes for Orton.

Legwold telling us that practice players are the “true gamers.” Way to go Legwold, between Kyle Orton’s dingleberry ridden performance last Monday and Brady Quinn’s turdfest in Arizona it hasn’t been a great two weeks for the “practice players” has it there Legwold?

Interesting that Legwold failed to even mention Kyle Orton’s name or poor quarterback play in his mind-blowingly accurate assessment of the Raiders game.

Mike Klis Denver Post

"Just Believe"

Meanwhile Mike Klis thought the Broncos could go 11-5 with Orton. Oh boy Klis, you wrote some real doozies like “We’ll win more than we lose with Orton.” Based on what? Eh there Klis?

No sympathy for Quinn: He'll be a great CBS analyst

“It’s only one game,” keep hope alive I guess. What a joke. Klis had to eat major dirt in his dreadful assessment of the Raiders game. However, now he tries to turn around and states that maybe the Broncos starters were just rusty since they didn’t play in the last preseason game. He also made excuses for Brady Quinn’s turdfest in Arizona, claiming Quinn didn’t play in the game the week before… so maybe he was rusty.

No excuses for Tim Tebow. Not ever. If Tebow takes a sack because some second tier lineman lets him blow right past we hear all about it. When Brady Quinn got his chance with the first team offense and threw up a pick in the endzone it’s fine because he was “all excited to be with the number ones.” If Tebow dropped that ball in the Raiders game we’d never hear the end of it. I’m beginning to see why people love this Tebow so much. Despite all he’s accomplished, despite showing promise and flashes of dynamic play on the field he gets marginalized by a bunch of geniuses who want to see him stopped before he even starts. Talking up Brady Quinn to beat down the chants of Tebow, my God what a joke. Unfair treatment, period. People say I’m hard on that Brady Quinn, but he’ll get no sympathy from me. He can get just about any broad he wants and he’ll have a bright, long career as an NFL analyst on CBS.

I dare John Fox, I double dog dare you to put in Brady Quinn if Orton gets hurt or sucks so bad he must be replaced. Talk about trouble.

The woefully mediocre Denver Broncos don’t need immobile storks at the quarterback position. Especially two unspectacular storks who are both free agents after this year. They need dynamic play when the offensive line and the uncreative plays break down. We  don’t need to evaluate Orton or Quinn any further, they’re free agents and we know who they are and what they can do. Then again, we should know. The records of these two, their play in actual regular season games over the past years is well documented. I don’t want to hear about looking forward to improvement of these two. They are who they are, Orton a steady yet limited journeyman and Quinn: a poor man’s Kyle Orton.

The Broncos fans have every right to be outraged by the piss poor actions of this bumbling front office. Kyle Orton shouldn’t even be on this team right now. They could have avoided this whole controversy. When others praised the journeyman’s play in the preseason against bad teams I wasn’t impressed. I wasn’t impressed when our offensive line did some run blocking in preseason–same personnel as last year. Not impressed one bit. I knew it wasn’t going to work. Elway and Co. should have known too. They should have a good grasp of the talent on this team.

They didn’t and don’t seem to. They believed in Kyle Orton. For some odd, for some weird reason they believed this guy would win more games for them with the personnel we have. It’s a joke and a gamble that’s going to blow up in their faces. They are the ones to blame. Not McDaniels, not Tebow. The Broncos mismanaged this quarterback situation to an epic fail level.

I told you people last June, if for some weird, horrible reason we start Orton because of the “lockout” situation, if we do start Orton they better win with him. They better.

Tebow Raiders

"Good thing we don't have to deal with this Monday" - Generic Raiders Fan

The Bronocs brass banked on “playing it safe” and winning with the veteran journeyman Steve DeBerg.. I mean Orton. They decided to marginalize the promising young quarterback who started three games last year and  injected this team with dynamic play, fiery leadership and excitement that Orton or Quinn could never muster. Decided to marginalize him because he didn’t “practice” well enough.

All the morons, all the degenerates out there parroting the same bad information are apparently blind to the fact that the rookie Tim Tebow actually played pretty well in his three starts for the Denver Broncos last year. Twenty four unanswered points in the second half of the Texans game and we’re supposed to believe there’s “no evidence whatsoever” that Tim Tebow can lead an NFL team.

“He can’t throw.” “He can’t play.” “Fans want him based on no evidence.”

I suppose the fact that Tebow came in cold as a rookie in last season against the Raiders, Texans and Chargers and managed to put up more points per game than Orton in nine starts last season– I suppose that means nothing to people who see what they want to see. Hell we were actually competitive in those last three games, ain’t that a change? We were one hail mary away from actually beating a Chargers team that regularly dominates us.

When Tebow throws a bomb to Brandon Lloyd for a touchdown it’s called “luck.”

I’ll tell you what luck is. Luck is the Broncos vs. Bengals game two years ago when Kyle Orton’s terrible pass got batted up and into the arms of Brandon Stokely for a fluke game winning touchdown. In fact, that may be one of Kyle Orton’s only come from behind wins as a Denver Bronco. Can anybody even imagine Kyle Orton putting up twenty four unanswered points with this team, ever? Hell, trying to overcome even one holding penalty is like climbing mount Everest with the dink and dunker DeBerg, I mean Orton at the helm.

Highly knowledgeable Broncos member says: "Weber better than Tebow."

The smart thing to do this offseason was jettison Kyle Orton. But oh no, ” Thank God for Orton” some miscreant, some total reject on the Broncos staff cried. What a joke.

The smart thing to do was marginalize two unspectacular quarterbacks on the Broncos roster who are destined for free agency this year, not the rookie kid who the fans want, not the one who they justifiably want based on the dynamic plays, the positive shot in the arm he gave this team at the end of last season. A quarterback who actually shows competitive fire, who can move the chains in ways the others cannot and a QB who ultimately may have decent upside. Wouldn’t it be nice to find out? This year while our team is mediocre at best?

Oh no. We’re stuck in this grand scheme constructed by coach John Fox. Win with Orton. Play great defense, run the ball and protect the immobile no mistake pocket passer. Maybe playoffs even.

Sorry pal, it’s not going to work.

It reminds me of former coach Mike Shanahan bringing in the Packers defensive coordinator Jim Bates in order to bring his amazing defensive scheme to Denver. A defensive scheme that we absolutely, positively did not have the personnel to execute.

Jim Bates didn’t last long. John Fox won’t either if he doesn’t adapt.

I hope you diehard glass half full Broncos fans are aware of the schedule this year–it ain’t pretty. This Raiders game was supposed to be one of the easy ones.

Same old, same old

This team doesn’t need Kyle Orton or Brady Quinn. It needs dynamic quarterback play. That’s why I don’t believe Kyle Orton gives this team the best chance to win. He’s immobile and limited, no intangibles. He’s duck soup when the offensive line breaks down and so is Brady Quinn. I believe Timmy Teebs could move the chains on this team better than either of these two. He can run when the receivers are covered instead of throwing the ball away, he keeps a defense honest with his dynamic abilities and he keeps the chains moving, which prevents our not-so-great defense from breaking down and sucking wind.

The QB situation we’re in is due to the Broncos management. They banked on Orton winning games and shutting people up and it’s not happening. I don’t care if we win next week against a bad team and Orton puts up 400 yards. He’s not the future, the team isn’t that good and we will not improve to the point of being consistently competitive this year against average or better teams.

These fans have every right to boo, to hiss, to chant Tebow to put up costly billboards. What a joke it is that John Fox claims he didn’t hear the chants for Tebow. I heard some people claim that they won’t start Tebow at all this year no matter what. I wouldn’t count on that one bit. As the losses pile up we will see the power a fan base can have on a football team. It may get to a point where they absolutely cannot start Kyle Orton in another game. We’ve had enough of this Orton in Denver, two years was enough, three is too much.

It’s getting downright macabre in the P.P. Dublinski household on game day. I watched this Raiders game as an unaffected observer. Totally emotionless, didn’t expect anything other than same old Broncos. Didn’t even care that we were getting punked by the Raiders at home. Watching Von Miller was decent, he’s surely a player. That’s about where the excitement ends. Unbelievable.

This management only has itself to blame for not doing the smart thing: Play the kid, give him the chance he deserves, give the fans what they want and if it looks real bad use our high draft pick next year on a quarterback. If it looks good, use the draft pick on a lights out offensive or defensive lineman. Perhaps even a star running back.

That’s the smart thing to do. We were going to.

We didn’t. Big mistake.
