Clearly, Big Daddy Elway is reading P.P.

Remember all the talk the past two years about some “great defense” in Broncos land?

Big Daddy just signed three All Pro caliber defensive players. Pretty big overhaul to something that wasn’t broken to begin with. I’ve said all along we’re three to four players short of a good defense.

Defense isn’t the only problem, the running game is abysmal against good teams. This at least shows they are well aware of the problem. I don’t want to see 55 touchdowns through the air next year. “Greatest passing attack of all time ..”

What did that get them?

Meanwhile in La La land at the Denver Post, ol’ Woody Paige says bring back Mike Shanahan as an “aide.”

Probably one of the dumbest things I’ve ever skimmed.

“Karma Elway, Karma”

Friday, January 18th, 2013

I just finished eleven Sierra Nevada Pale Ales and I’m here to tell the truth to some of you people out there. My words are iron and I cannot and will not be stopped.

Feels good to be a Broncos fan right now, don’t it?

I don’t blame that Peter Tebow one bit for razzing Mr. Elway. Imagine your kid brother finally gets his chance to start for a faltering NFL team and then gets ridiculed each week by Big Daddy Elway and his cohorts in the media. After each win you hear a bunch of crap from Broncos alumni Sharpe, Jackson and Schlereth. I don’t want to hear about 8-8, that kid would have brought us to 10-6 last year had he started earlier. He went 7-4, 8-5 counting the playoffs. Seems people want to blame the last three losses solely on him too, that’s fine with me. I’ll blame the eight wins on him if that’s how we’re gonna gauge things.

I heard Brady Quinn completed fifty-eight percent of his passes this year. Isn’t that something? I bet the folks in Kansas City just can’t wait to start him next year. I heard he can make all the throws at the pro level. Amazing.

 

I don’t know about you, but last year after that I was proud to be a Broncos fan. Under fifty percent passing completions too. I wonder why the sports press don’t hold Blaine Gabbert or Brian Hoyer’s feet to the fire? They ain’t never won nothing, the only coming from behind they’ve ever done is probably on some cheap floozy at a college keg party.

You thought this year’s playoff collapse was bad? How about if they lose in the playoffs next year? Talk about pressure to perform, talk about a curse.

I have a sneaking suspicion that “Mile High Magic” left the building with Tebow. Unfortunately for Tebow it doesn’t work in New York and unfortunately for the Broncos they unceremoniously booted it out of Colorado.

Fast forward to the Broncos acquisition of Manning.

I didn’t like it.

Still don’t.

Didn’t like one bit how it went down.

Let me ask some of you people something, especially you sea cucumbers out there: Do you love being led by a Colt in the twilight of his career? Do you honestly love this?

It don’t sit right with me, never did.

I would have much rather we kept Tebow and drafted Osweiler. Perhaps Tebow would have been benched mid-season or perhaps the Broncos would get to the playoffs, fail once more and then decide to go with Osweiler.

I would have been much, much happier. These players are Broncos, not some Colt we are renting for three seasons or so. Nothing personal Manning, but I don’t like this situation one bit.

On top of that, I wanted a running back, middle linebacker, safety and two defensive tackles. You know, bolstering this not-ready-yet team instead of shelling out millions to a Colts QB in the twilight of his career.

We threw a bunch of money on an aging Colt who may or may not play to his potential in the icy Colorado post season. Much of Manning’s greatness occurred in the cozy confines of a dome and add to that the fact that he is 9-11 in the playoffs–no sure thing the Broncos will get to the big show next year either.

Can’t argue his greatness in the regular season.

But I’d rather get on with the future.

I believe the Broncos could have gotten to the playoffs this year with a Tebow or Osweiler (if Osweiler turns out to be as good as he looked in preseason, I happen to think yes). 10-6 wouldn’t have been out of the question in this raw sewage AFC west. Hell, I firmly believe the Broncos would have won the early Raiders and Chargers games last year had we started the kid.

I was shocked that Manning chose Denver because this team doesn’t have a great defense and still has many needs.

How about that “great Broncos defense?”

Yes they’re great against the septic tank of the AFC west. Yes they’re great against a declining Saints, a horrible Panthers and a lowly Browns. The Broncos defense is great against crap and mediocre teams.

When it comes to some real competition, the Broncos defense gets whacked. They get whacked because not a whole lot has changed.

This “great number2 defense in the league” needs TWO defensive tackles, a middle linebacker and a safety. Rahim Moore shouldn’t be on the team next season. This team sorely needs an enforcer back there who can lay out running backs, instead they have a kid whose only big hits are on defenseless receivers.

Edge rushers alone does not a defense make. How the hell long is it going to take for Denver to realize this? The entire middle of that defense needs an overhaul. I knew it, you should have known it too. That Bob Smith knows it, who the hell is this Bob Smith commenter anyways? I bet he is a damn disciple of P.P.

The Broncos got whomped when they faced a good balanced offense. This defense keys on the pass and they get run over all day. This defense keys on the run and gets torched through the air all day (see last Sunday’s pathetic display.) I knew for a fact this team would get smashed when they played New England. The Patriots have a decent running game this year and Tom Brady doesn’t miss those wide open receivers like Joe Flacco does.

Did any of you people watch the SoundFX replay of last Sunday’s game? I sure as hell did.

“Hey, so a field goal will win it?” a beleaguered Von Miller asked Elvis Dumervil.

“Yeap, yeap,” a sullen Dumervil replied.

I actually do feel a little sorry for Von Miller and Champ Bailey. They are both class act professionals unlike some others but they both had a lousy game.

First I was disgusted. Next I remembered how lucky I was this season to keep my distance from these Broncos and not be emotionally invested in them. I knew they weren’t as good as their record seemed to indicate. The offense performed a little better than I expected. I expected Manning to be good, but oh by the way, when it came to receivers it wasn’t really Thomas or Decker that impressed. It was Stokley, Dreesen and Tamme.

Stokley, Dreesen and Tamme made more huge plays for this offense at critical points in games all season long. Hell, what did our big receiver Thomas do last Sunday? I saw Anquan Boldin out there getting open and making plays. Demaryius Thomas needs to do more, either that or we need another wide receiver. The “QB just couldn’t get the ball to them” is no excuse this year. I believe the Broncos need one more fast, dynamic receiver and kick Decker to the slot. I do not believe the Broncos are as “set” as some people think at receiver. They can get better. They can also upgrade a tight end, our guys played OK but it would be nice to have the second coming of Shannon Sharpe out there.

This offense came together a little better than I expected this year, but overall it wasn’t a big surprise. Our running game is mediocre, it’s good enough against bad teams but fails to produce overall mainly because we don’t have anything special at running back. Like I’ve said this team needs a young Willis McGahee.

Can you imagine if this team kept last year’s read option offense and drafted a running back like Doug Martin? He put up 1400 yards on a lousy team, just imagine what he could have done instead of the aging, oft injured knees of you know who.

You know that ungrateful guy who spouted off during the offseason with a bunch of anonymous players?

I heard he was gonna put up much more than 1,200 yards this year. Last I counted it was 730, sorry there Willis.

When people started to say “look out for Knowshon Moreno” in the ass end of this season I laughed my balls off. I wasn’t fooled.

Are kidding me? A sea slug could have sensed it was just a matter of time for Knownshon to get injured once again. The kid can’t carry the load running between the tackles, if you were smart you’d only use him on certain plays such as screens and catching out of the backfield. That was moronic. I’m not too impressed by Hillman although he’s OK he’s just not the answer.

Some people have the audacity to say this Broncos team might be like the one that lost to Jacksonville sixteen years ago in the playoffs. You’re s&^tting me right? You mean the one that had Terrell Davis? You better hope we can draft a Terrell Davis this year. If the Broncos were smart, they’d realize they can’t ride Manning’s arm all the way to the big show. They need to run a little more, especially in the cold. They need a strong runner like McGahee who has moves like Moreno. The Broncos will be picking late in the first round and that’s exactly where they might be able to land a decent running back this year.

Speaking of John Fox and smarts — yes that was a pathetic decision to take a knee with thirty second on the clock. I guarantee it was a pathetic decision no matter what is said about it because it will never happen again.

Elway wouldn’t have taken a knee there, why the hell should Manning have?

No matter, the Patriots would have sh-lacked the Broncos this weekend.

Team’s not ready yet, sorry.

Cut him.

Overpaid and when he is used right as a third down RB receiver he can’t even stay on the field.

Jeff Legwold: Diary of a Beaten Man

Thursday, October 27th, 2011
Jeff Legwold

Jeff Legwold -- Beaten and Downtrodden

First, this guy tells us the practice players Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn are the real gamers.

Legwold probably got this bad information from these “league executives” he’s always talking up. John Elway recently said practice and game time are two different things. I’ll take Elway’s version, thanks.

Brady Quinn implodes in preseason and Kyle Orton does a pick throwing Canadian Goose impression in the middle of the field for the next four games.

Meanwhile, Legwold simply cannot believe his almighty practice players are riding pine. After the unpolished kid is named starter, Legwold gives us a next to impossible laundry list of things the kid better do right to succeed.

“Tebow could do this… BUT…”

“Tebow might do this… BUT…”

Blah blah fricken blah.

Next Legwold makes the audacious claim that Brandon Lloyd demanded a trade since Timmy Teebs was named the starter. Lloyd, his agent and Mike Klis of the Post said the trade requests came about in the summer.

The latest from Legwold? Well, it was the Broncos receivers and a lackadaisical Miami defense switching to a prevent that produced a Denver win–not so much Timmy Teebs.

You’ve got to be kidding me. I imagine this lazy journalist sits in the Denver Compost bathrooms and blows hoagies out his ass while he plans his next important move. I imagine this guy chewing bitter roots as he seethes and audibly farts in front of the tube when Timmy Teebs runs for a first down.

I hope the kid rubs salt in your wounds all season long Legwold, all season long I’ll be laughing my ass off with every win and every touchdown authored by Timmy Teebs. None other than Timmy Teebs, the total antithesis to your practice players.

I’ll be laughing and you’ll be blowing more sewage out your ass. Oh yeah. Unfortunately, some of the turd will creep onto the page. The fine citizens of Denver picking up their local paper don’t deserve to be disgraced by the unctuous turdage from the bowels of this sea cucumber who manages to wield a pen.

This guy’s on a worse streak right now than Klis, Kreiger or that old sot Woody Paige combined. This Legwold is failing harder than Mike Klis did this August if that’s even possible. Klis who told us we’d win more than we lose with Kyle Orton and hinted at a 10-6, 11-5 Broncos team behind the incredible new running game. Like I said, it’s better–not great. Paige has been consistent about Tebow, but in his latest he wishes Shanahan was still here along with miscreants Cutler, Marshall and Scheffler… get over it buddy.

Which brings me to that Peyton Hillis, eh? What the hell is going on there. I can see why McDaniels sent him down the river on a crap house door–he probably has a bad attitude just like Cutler, Marshall and Scheffler.

If Cleveland can’t get along with Hillis after a Pro Bowl year, who the hell can?

After being jettisoned from Denver Marshall ruined his career. Huckdort Cutler shortened his career. Scheffler caught six passes this year–I bet he can’t wait for the season to end either. Good riddance. Good riddance to Hillis too for that matter, he’s probably got an attitude, plus he fumbles too much.

In other news I saw a piece on Knownshon Moreno… how he might be able to regain the starting job if he plays well. I say DON’T do that. Get Lance Ball in there to tow the load if McGahee’s out. Every time we try and make Knowshon “the guy” it doesn’t work and he ends up injured. We need to use him in draws, screens, short passes in the flats–that’s who he is. He can be great in those situations. I have a bad feeling we won’t use him like that–yet again–and we’ll send him somewhere else where they WILL use him like that to great success.

How bout that Dumervil, eh? Better get it together buddy, this guy ain’t earning his keep. He may not be a fit for the four three after all, we’ll end up trading him if he doesn’t show up out there. I know he gets “pressures,” but so don’t Ryan McBean and there’s an abolsute universe of a gap between paychecks there.

The Broncos have a shot at winning the home game this Sunday. We’ll need at least three quarters of good play from Timmy Teebs and three touchdowns, either running or gunning, to have a shot. I happen to think Teebs was a nervous wreck last Sunday. He is and was enormous pressure to perform an even moreso in front of his “home” crowd. Teeb’s has a different situation than say John Elway and Blaine Gabbert–the deck was cleared for those quarterbacks. Elway knew he was the only guy moving forward and Gabbert knows that now, not so with Teebs. He has to prove himself in these games or else.

Chargers 29 Broncos 24 The Tebow Era Begins

Elway Fox Xanders Orton

Five games in and it blew up in their faces...

The most exciting half of Denver Broncos football all year. It’s about time. I am adding Alfred Williams and Mark Schlereth to the Reality Meter. Look at them, look at them. All those minds together does not equal one P.P. Dublinski.

Reality is Here

“The kid can’t play and the kid can’t throw.”

I don’t care what anybody says, this offense moves forward with Tim Tebow at the helm. I don’t care how he does it. I don’t care about completion percentage or any stats whatsoever. Move the chains and score touchdowns, get the offense from point A to point B however you can. Ditka knows, Ditka knows.

Tebow’s screen passes are money. The kid throws a beautiful screen. I’m telling you this kid could revive Knowshon Moreno’s career. Screens and draws–nothing else for Moreno. Leave the heavy lifting on first and second downs to Willis McGahee. Tebow also throws the ball down field well, it’s these intermediate passes to the right and left sideline where he needs work–a lot of it. But hey, he came in cold, it’s not like he’s getting the first team reps or anything… we squandered those up until now, we gave them all to some doofus.

This should be the end of the Kyle Orton era in Denver.

This should also be the end of the Kyle Orton offense in Denver.

Seriously, if Tebow has trouble under center then don’t play him under center. Or at least limit that. What’s wrong with the shotgun? What’s wrong with running out of the shotgun? You see how this kid poses problems for a defense? They need to be ready for his run at all times, it puts pressure on a defense.

The commentary by Rich Gannon on Brandon Lloyd’s dropped two point conversion was stupid. All this “if Tebow were under center” crap. No, if Lloyd catches that ball–the ball placed right in his hands– if he catches it then all Gannon could say is “great throw.”

I was surprised John Fox pulled the plug on Kyle Orton at the half. Pleasantly surprised. Then again, how can you justify 34 yards passing, a pick and terrible throws that should have been picked? I said to myself the kid couldn’t do any worse.

Glad the coach agrees.

We should have been playing this kid with the starters from day one of training camp. We squandered the season up to this point–we weren’t moving forward on offense that’s for sure. We could have won games with this kid, he puts pressure on a defense with his abilities. Abilities Kyle Orton could never dream of.

AP Photo - Timmy Teebs = Mobility

Tebow should have been throwing to Lloyd, Royal and Decker all season long. That’s how you develop timing. Instead, we marginalized him and relegated him to the B and C team while we gave amazing Kyle all the first team reps. That looks smart now doesn’t it? Doesn’t it Alfred Williams? Doesn’t it Mark Schlereth?

The kid didn’t do too badly coming in cold. The excuses and criticism  are flying, I see that Trent Dilfer and our very own Tom Jackson criticizing the move already. How they’ll have to dumb down the offense, how “Tebow is limited.”

Earth to Tom Jackson–you’ve got to be kidding me.

You want to talk about a limited quarterback?

Look no further pal.

eh cuckoo? eh cuckoo?

Now the Broncos have hope and now moving forward they may win some games they should lose.

“Kyle Orton is our best chance to win.”

“Kyle Orton gives the Broncos credibility.”

“The practice players Orton and Quinn are the real gamers.”

Take your best chance to win, take your Orton credibility, take your practice players and flush them right down the toilet. Crash and burn baby, oh yeah.

So much for Brady Quinn being “the real number two in Denver.” I’m glad they’re smarter than that.

The Kyle Orton era is down the river on a $h&^house door baby, down the river on a $*^house door.

The Timmy Tebow era is here.

If you don’t like it, you better learn to love it.

I will still demand apologies for squandering the season up until now, apologies for poor mental acuity and woefully sub par decision making.

PS–Kudos to Robert Ayers. He’s making more big plays out there lately than Dumervil right now and that’s the truth.

A Message for Alfred Williams and Mark Schlereth

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

104.3 “The Drive” radio station out of Colorado “interviewed” Kentucky Broncos fan Jesse Oaks about his idea to set up some Tim Tebow billboards in Denver. Instead of “interviewing him” they basically mocked him from the get go, ridiculing him for his billboard idea and they even belittled him for being a Broncos fan living in Kentucky.

I won’t link to the stupid radio piece, instead I will give credit to Troy Hufford who brought this to the attention of Broncos fans over at Mile High Report.

Now I don’t really care about the billboard. When I first heard of it I thought it was kind of funny and fans can do whatever they want. It shows how seriously fed up most fans are with the quarterback play of number 8. How fed up we are with the man who inspired us like never before against our blood rival last Monday Night. That was incredible, I actually watched it. Did you?

I don’t care about this “D-Mac” loser, he’s just some goober who sounds like he snorted a bunch of Vivarin, he’s there trying to play the role of antagonist.

The kid they interviewed didn’t seem like some stupid know-nothing a-hole, despite Alfred Williams and Mark Schlereth trying to paint him as one. Jesse Oaks claim’s he’s tired of Kyle Orton and wants a change at quarterback. It seems Mr. Oaks caved to recent outside pressure though and he decided to change the billboard over from a pro-Tebow message to a sign that just disses Kyle Orton. That was a mistake. Stick to your guns and screw everybody else. Only a first-rate moron would want Brady Quinn–a poor man’s Kyle Orton with no upside and a free agent to boot–only a sea cucumber would want Brady Quinn to take over for Kyle Orton this year.

I hear Brady Quinn's pretty good.

That’s why I dare John Fox to put in Brady Quinn. I dare you Mr. Fox to play Brady Quinn. You don’t like the Tebow chants? I wouldn’t put it past most reasonable people to just get up and walk out of that stadium if the mighty Quinnby gets the nod. A five year player with no upside. I don’t feel bad for Quinn either, he can get any broad he wants and he’ll have a great career as a CBS analyst.

I’m hoping like crazy they actually do that. I can’t wait to be that entertained. It better be a home game.

Getting back to business, Alfred Williams kept questioning whether Mr. Oaks trusts John Fox and John Elway… stating that if he trusted them then he surely trusts Xanders and the quarterback coach… The kid didn’t seem to want to throw Fox or his long time idol John Elway under the bus. He didn’t want to question them, he was simply sick of Orton. That was a mistake.

Trust John Fox. Trust John Elway. Why Alfred Williams? What have they done for us lately?

They drafted Von Miller which is good. They could have drafted Marcell Dareus which would have been good too. All I’m saying is the number two pick wasn’t some incredible decision only a true football genius could figure out.

The rest of the draft picks? Remains to be seen. Can’t say it was amazing work yet. Funny that defensive tackle was and still is a glaring need yet we’re going to stop people from running the ball? Oh yeah, there’s always free agency for that. We surely had a plan. A young power running back would have been nice–but there was a plan there too. Surely.

Next up, we botch the Orton trade. We’re all in to trade Orton–you can’t deny that one bit–we’re all in to trade him away and we turn around and don’t do it? What the hell was that? Why should we trust this management?

What a joke that was. Don’t blame Jesse Oaks, don’t blame the fans, don’t take shots at Tebow for this–but I’m sure your crew will do all of those things.

Trade Orton... wait, no... eh, no one will notice.

Management brought it on themselves after that utter debacle. But oh no, I suppose we should ass sniff Elway, Fox and Xanders… they know what’s right for the team. They wouldn’t do anything to heighten a quarterback controversy right from the start of training camp would they?

We trade away Jabar Gaffney to the Redskins for a player that doesn’t make the team. I don’t care that we have good depth or perceived good depth at receiver. We traded away a player who is now the second best wide receiver on the Redskins, we traded him away for absolutely nothing. I suppose we should all just look the other way? Trust in EFX they say.

The coach tells us that we’ll run the football this year. We’ll run five hundred times and we won’t abandon the run. Yet we changed one guy on that offensive line. One )&()*in guy on a line that’s never proven anything run blocking and now we’re gonna roll over everybody?

I’ll tell you something, this coach should have a better grasp of his player’s talent level. A better grasp of strengths and weaknesses. I expected we’d acquire a running back somewhere this offseason, but Willis McGahee isn’t the answer. Neither was DeAngelo Williams. We need a guy who can run between the tackles on first and second downs and we do not have it. McGahee is too old for that role, but he’s a good situational short yardage back. Moreno is no player for running between the tackles. We’re misusing him. He’s already banged up for Christ’s sake. He’s not “the guy” he’s Kevin Faulk. He catches great out of the backfield, he runs very well in open space, he’s not going to tow the load between the tackles. Not for any length of time.

Sorry. We’re only gonna run well against bad teams. I saw this coming since the very beginning of training camp. Apparently Fox didn’t based on the crap we heard coming out of Dove Valley.

Why should I trust him when he says we’ll play great defense this year? What was the plan in free agency? We whiffed on all the promising young defensive tackles, the top available tackles were signed at five million a year–they didn’t break the bank, did they?

We sign a bunch of injury prone castoffs for our defensive line. Great. Who is this defensive line going to stop?

What a joke. Why should we trust John Fox? Doesn’t seem like he had a good grasp of his talent spouting off about “winning now” does it? Running the ball, playing great defense, dinking, dunking and game managing the field with immobile Orton. Sorry pal, you don’t have the personnel to field that team. You don’t have the personnel in place to carry Kyle Orton to wins.

Colonel Klink Captain Schulz John Fox John Elway

Captain John Fox Schulz and Colonel Klink Elway

I ask again, why are we to trust this guy? What’s he done for us lately? His starters beat up a few bad teams in preseason? His favorite free agent quarterbacks looked great in practice?

Our problems started at the beginning of training camp with the botched Orton trade. Blame this Oaks kid? Blame Tebow for that? How about blaming your boy John Elway?

The way things are going right now, maybe Elway ought to think about selling furniture again.

In a recent radio interview, Woody Paige claimed John Fox is adamant about winning now while Elway believes in a three year plan.

The way we’re going, neither of these two ideas are going to work. Three year plan? Three years while our glorious starting quarterback is gone in free agency this year? Winning now? Winning now when we clearly don’t have the personnel to run John Fox’s grand scheme of power running, playing great defense, making no mistakes and measured pocket passing with the great Kyle Orton?

Kyle Orton who has a terrible win loss ratio as a Bronco, terrible red zone and third down play, no fire in the belly, no intangibles.

Playoffs with Orton? How about winning a big regular season game first? That’s how big of a joke the Kyle Orton show is in Denver.

Talk is cheap and it blew up in their faces last Monday Night. It’s only the beginning, it’s going to be fun to see this debacle play out. Oh yeah baby.

Now we’re trying out a bunch of defensive linemen and running backs… and we’re gonna take a look at Darren Sharper.

Why the hell are we doing this NOW?

Do they even know what the hell they’re doing?

Three year *(%*&%in plan, and our starting QB is leaving in free agency? Marginalize the rookie kid who played well in the last three 2010 season games? We’re supposed to be all in with this stupid plan right now? What an absolute joke.

Why the hell were the Broncos going to trade Orton? Can you explain that A. Williams?

Mr. Oaks has every right to call a duck a duck. To call a turd a (*^in turd. Throwing that amount of cash at a billboard may be going too far, but when it comes to criticism of this regime he’s not going far enough.

Now onto Mark Schlereth. Schlereth who’s only claim to fame in Denver these days is “owning a house there.”

It sounded like Schlereth laughed so hard about Jesse Oaks living in Kentucky that he pissed himself at the end of that lame duck interview. I heard he oft pisses himself behind the desk there at ESPN too. What a disgusting human being.

Schlereth claims Tebow mostly throws passes at the air in practice. Schlereth claims Tebow is too big to play quarterback and states that Tebow is no pocket passer. When Schlereth talks Tebow lately, it’s all gloom and doom.

Let’s hear what the genius Schlereth says about a similar running, gunning, athletic young quarterback; Carolina’s Cam Newton:

Listen, don’t try to take this guy who is an exceptional athlete and make him a pocket passer right away. Obviously, that has to be a part of the repertoire, but to me, you have to get him comfortable. Get him outside of the pocket. Give him a run-pass option. Create some easy throws for him to get in a rhythm… The coaching staff has to put him in a situation where he can have success and he can get more comfortable outside the pocket, because that’s really what he is.

mark schlereth punk

Stink, stank, stunk

Well duh buddy, spot on about Newton. Now why in the blue hell don’t you say that about Tebow? Some joke that is pal.

Let’s forget all about the three games Tebow started last season. 24 unanswered points in the Texans game to win it, he got us within a hail mary pass of beating the Chargers who regularly dominate us and the kid scores six rushing touchdowns in limited play. Knowshon Moreno played thirteen games last year. How many rushing touchdowns? How about five.

Kyle Orton failed to score over twenty one points in nine regular season games last year. In his three starts the kid scored 23, 24, 28… that is a recipe for winning in the NFL. You want to be a decent team? You better hope your offense can average twenty four points a game with consistency. Otherwise you better hope you have a top five defense.

Nope, the kid can’t play, he’s too big. He’s not a pocket passer and he’s not the practice professional Brady Quinn is. What did practice play do for Quinn two weeks ago when he imploded on national TV? What did it do for him in his years of play in Cleveland? You and that Jeff Legwold over at the Denver Compost can take your practice QB’s and shove them up your collective asses. Good luck fielding those unspectacular,  immobile storks with no upside behind our offensive line. It’s playing out baby, and I’m loving it.

He’ll tell you all about what’s wrong with Tim Tebow and on the other hand he’ll give sound advice to Cam Newton.

Hey Schlereth, take some of that green chili you peddle and blow it out your ass.

That’s after you finish pissing yourself, yet again.

 

Broncos 20 Raiders 23 Same Old, Same Old

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

Same old, same old

Oh how the narrative has changed, even after one stinking game.

Anybody shocked out there? Anybody real disappointed?

Not me.

I wondered why people were even mentioning the Broncos running attack this preseason. Denver Post dolt writers talking it up as new and improved. The new coach boasting he’ll “run 500 times.”

Good luck with that dude.

LIKE I SAID … Ahem. Like I said, what did we change? We got a rookie tackle? What else changed on that line? We brought in Willis McGahee? So what? Is John Fox’s amazing spiritual aura going to improve our running game?

Not good enough. Besides needing one more skilled running back who has decent size and runs tough, this team needs two new guards. This team also needs two new defensive tackles.

Our offensive line isn’t there yet. A dolt could have told you that. We’re no force to be reckoned with running the football. We’re not even pass blocking all that well. I give credit to the Raiders front seven though, they field a good front seven. Their defensive line dominated us all game, but I also noticed they were tired as hell and sucking wind in the second half–even though they didn’t have to chase down the immobile stork that is Kyle Orton.

Imagine if we had someone mobile back there in a situation like that? Imagine if these tired chumps in the thin air had to chase that guy around? Too bad we can only imagine because Kyle Orton can “make all the throws” and he is a bona fide “pocket passer” that supposedly wins championships.

Kerry Collins is a pocket passer too.

tebow fans

A family in Boulder, CO rejoices during last night's loss after being robbed of their entertainment all season long.

So what. Big fricken deal. I don’t want to hear it. I don’t want to hear any excuses either, the Broncos do not, I repeat DO NOT win with Kyle Orton. Period. End of story.

I don’t care what he looks like in preseason. I don’t care that we ran decent against some chumps for a quarter here and a quarter there in preseason. This team isn’t good enough to carry, I repeat, carry a Kyle Orton.

Elway better get off this “pocket passing” jag, better get off it and come to grips with reality. Yeah, pocket passing wins championships alright, that is if you can even protect the quarterback. Elway didn’t have that luxury until his last three years when we fielded all world linemen.

We can’t consistently protect the quarterback. Our offensive line gets bullied. Our defensive line gets bullied. We suck balls at the point of attack. The front office seemed to only flirt with defensive tackle acquisitions in the draft and free agency and now it’s coming back to bite them in the ass. The offensive and defensive lines better be addressed this offseason.

Same old Broncos. So predictable. Unspectacular quarterback play, inability to run the ball and a defense that gives up big yards on the ground plus big plays in the second half. You can always count on this defense to give up that killer play in the second half. It often comes right after a positive score for the Broncos, it happened once again tonight with the McFadden ground show after the Eric Decker kick return.

I feel sorry for some of you people that believed this Broncos team was a playoff team. I feel sorry for some of yous who had high hopes. I sure didn’t. That’s why I wanted to start the kid and see exactly what we have. We’re squandering the season as it is.

We’re not there yet on both sides of the ball, namely the offensive and defensive line. We’re not there yet, we’re not going to run the ball like crazy and running teams will bulldoze our defensive middle.

We’re not there yet and we are squandering this season on the shoulders of an unspectacular journeyman quarterback who should have been traded. A seven year player with no upside. We’ve also had to endure talk of a fifth year player “vastly improving.” It’s a joke all around.

Elway and Co. did well drafting Von Miller. Rahim Moore and Orlando Franklin seem like they’ll be decent too. I am disappointed we didn’t get more help on the defensive line.

We traded away a good football player in Jabar Gaffney for nothing. Absolutely nothing. That’s one demerit. Gaffney is the Redskins second best receiver now and that’s the truth. We ended up with the turd end of the stick in that deal.

The second mistake was keeping Kyle Orton on this team. We were about to do the right thing. We were about to say sayonara Orton and we screwed up. Now we are squandering the season and we’re even being led to believe that Brady Quinn is something special in order to quiet the quarterback controversy.

It’s a joke. We are not a playoff team. Yet they are all worried about winning with Kyle Orton and being some sort of “legitimate contender.” Kyle Orton legitimizes the Broncos? You have to be kidding me.

The might of the pure pocket passer... Are you scared Raiders?

Shame on these Denver Compost writers talking up Orton, talking up Quinn, talking up our running game. Hell even the defense, I knew they weren’t top ten material. Not yet, we got better in the pass rush and maybe safety but not much else. As long as you see the names “McBean” and “Unrein” out there that’s code for “we ain’t there yet.”

We aren’t on some brilliant road to the future right now. We are on a suck train led by an uninspiring offense.

The Carolina Panthers are getting on with the future. Not us. We’re stuck in bizarro Orton world. Isn’t that great? Oh yeah that’s just great. Three points at the half. Ten points in the second half not counting the Eric Decker return. One good drive by the offense. Just one for a touchdown. Haven’t we seen this sorry show enough? Even Trent Dilfer noticed the lack of fire in that offense. No fire. No intangibles. Suck, suck.

I stated last June, I stated if for some weird reason we are starting Orton week one of this season, if for some horrible reason we go that route this John Fox character better… he BETTER win with Orton. If not, it’s trouble.

And it’s trouble baby.

Hell, we have the Raiders defense to thank for most of our positive yards last night. Unbelievable. I don’t know what tape John Fox was watching last year, don’t know what he was watching if he thought we could run the football without changing personnel. Changing personnel at the point of attack. People get on McDaniels for not running the ball–he couldn’t run. He often tried early, just like Fox did. We get stoned and have to give it up and rely on an immobile Orton throwing intermediate passes behind an inconsistent offensive line.

It’s a recipe for losing. That’s just what we did and that’s what we will continue to do. What a joke. What does Elway think he has in this Orton? This Fox? Eh? I tell you what…

I dare you John Fox. I DARE you to put Brady Quinn in there if Orton is stinking the place up yet again. Do it, and it had better be a home game too. I want to hear the absolute bedlam that will ensue.

Fear not Denver, we have NFL caliber hope for the future.

You see that Cam Newton, eh? Not a bad performance last week and that’s a loss you can live with. You can live with rookie losses, rookie mistakes. At least there’s hope you’re heading in the right direction. There’s the hope of upside, the learning curve hurts but at least you’re learning.

Hell, we should try and trade Orton before the trade deadline. Send him to the Colts for a third rounder. That’s one round better than the obligatory pick we’ll get when he goes in free agency. Send him to the Bengals… although that Dalton kid may be a fine option for them, not sure they’d even want Orton at this point.

Orton to Lloyd, Orton to Lloyd. Enough already. It’s not working. It’s not a recipe for winning. The hell with Lloyd’s stats in a free agent year. He probably won’t even be on the team next year.

No it’s not all Orton’s fault that we lost tonight. The fact is a good chunk of it was and we just don’t win with him. How much more proof do some of you people need? How many more snaps are we going to give this guy? Preseason or otherwise? What a joke that we’ve invested so much in him this year when he should have gone bye-bye. It’s a disgrace and I will demand apologies and even resignations.

That Legwold who talks up Orton and Quinn, that Legwold keeps trying to reassure people that coach Fox will send Timmy Teebs out there in special packages. No way Jose, I don’t believe that for a second. This front office doesn’t want a QB controversy, but it’s about to become unavoidable.

Besides not wanting to fan the flames of controversy, this Fox seems to be woefully uncreative on offense. He better adapt. John Fox comes from the conservative Bill Parcells coaching tree. A tree that includes Bill Belichik. Years ago, the defensively-minded, yet offensively conservative Belichik became head coach of the New England Patriots. He first tried the Parcells approach: Run first, great defense and the quarterback (Bledsoe, a journeyman who was highly erratic under pressure) must stick to the game plan.

It didn’t work. He had to adapt with his new quarterback. In comes Tom Brady and nowadays that New England team is still known for its defense under Belichik but their offense burns you through the air, unlike the Parcells model.

This Fox better adapt or he ain’t gonna be around much longer. We should have adapted already, adapted this offense to the skills of the rookie quarterback who can run and pass. Instead we’re building around a mediocre, immobile seven year vet… oh and I hear the worse than mediocre five year vet fits the current system better too.

It’s a joke and they are getting what they deserve in Denver. A cold, hard dose of reality.

One notch added to the Reality Meter in P.P.’s favor.

Sorry.

 

I heard Horvil Tiki is up in Connecticut visiting relatives before they make the trip to Virginia. Only thing is, the power is still out from that storm up there. Serves him right. Couldn’t have worse timing. I suppose that’s what poor work ethic and insufficient tact gets you.

Some of you people think I ‘m some kind of bad person. Truth is, I am this site. This site would be nothing without me. Most of the people who voted in that poll here ought to be ashamed. I should have a million hits with my truths. I also have Horvil Tiki’s dog. That’s right. Who did he come to when the dog needed a place to stay? He came to me. I suppose that’s how bad of a guy I am. I also changed the dog’s name to something more tasteful. His name is now Bunger and I’ve even trained him not to piss all over the place like some dirty little runt.

I’m not gonna sugar coat it. Last Thursday’s game was sweet.

Brady Quinn

The Mighty Quinnby - "Just Qwinning"

I loved it. I did. I laughed my balls off. It was almost as fun as watching Jay Huckdort Cutler throw picks for the Chicago Bears.

The cute little plan went to hell as the “perfect pocket passer” Brady Quinn failed to marginalize Timmy Tebow.

Not only did he fail to marginalize Timmy Teebs, but the perfect practice pupil crashed and burned big time.

A hideous, heinous display from a five year “NFL pro.” Poor coach and front office, it seems they wanted people to shut up and get on board the Orton/Quinn offense.

We saw a five year quarterback the Denver Compost and others were talking up like some kind of golden rookie all month long, we saw that amazing player take the field and reality struck just like that.

Swift and leaving naught but dingleberries in the turd-ridden mouths of the pundits.

I told you we should know who Brady Quinn is on the field and what he does.

Now, I’m here to tell you the 2011 Denver Broncos won’t be very good either.
