Archive for Kyle Orton

Five games in, the chickens have already come home to roost.

Tebow Named Broncos Starter

I will demand apologies from the front office. I will send a written form and I want it signed and returned to me either sent by mail or faxed. Apologies for poor decision making and terrible management of the quarterback situation. Furthermore we’ve been screwed out of our entertainment for the past four games.

“EFX” better get their act together. Horrible management of the quarterback situation, botching the trade then marginalizing the kid while propping up the lame duck veteran. Everyone should have known this was and is a rebuilding year. All we heard was unbridled optimism and Denver Post goobers like that Klis, Krieger and Legwold predicting more wins than losses with Kyle Orton. Next, the team throws money at injury prone Ty Warren–and we all know how that worked out. Finally they trade a starting caliber wide receiver for nothing in return.

It took only four and a half games for the switch at quarterback. Four and a half games to realize there’s no point in fielding a free agent lame duck journeyman on a team that isn’t very good.

Now we get to hear a bunch of crap from analysts and pundits who either hate Tim Tebow personally or hate his fans.

That’s the deal with some of these deranged analysts. You know, Blaine Gabbert isn’t ready but he’s starting. Gabbert isn’t playing well and he killed the team the other day with a fumble. He’s a rookie though and the Jaguars will just have to suffer the growing pains to see whether he’s a player or not.

Wouldn’t it be something if the same patience was afforded to Tebow? Not so. No, this kid can’t play and he can’t throw. He’s also going to get killed running the ball.

The people who are so down on Tebow before he even gets a chance to show what he has, these people probably fall into two categories:

1. They don’t like him personally, they don’t like how outspoken he is about his religion.

2. Whenever one of these pundits says something stupid or off base about him, Tebow’s legions of fans fill their emails and tie up their phone lines refuting the criticism. The fans are probably nasty at times. The analysts double down on their expert opinion and guess who they take it out on? That’s right, Timmy Teebs.

I’ve heard enough about this “gameplanning” crap. Sea cucumbers keep spouting that Teebs won’t be successful at all when teams gameplan for him, gameplan for a running quarterback. The Texans had a week to prepare, so did the Chargers. I didn’t see Tebow get stuffed behind the line of scrimmage on every play, did you? In fact, he put up 24 and 28 points in those last two games. He also threw bombs to Brandon Lloyd, but oh no this kid can’t throw a pass to save his life.

If they stack the freakin box, fine. Send Lloyd deep and do a jump ball–he has a knack for getting them and Teebs throws a good deep pass. People said Orton is our best chance to win–I never believed that. Not on this team. Those runs for a first down are huge. They are huge for this team that isn’t very good. The kids ability to buy time when the protection breaks down (and oh it does break down) is also a big boost. If anything, we need dynamic play at the quarterback position, not an immobile game manager. I said all along this team isn’t good enough to carry Kyle Orton.

Now the quarterback chickens come home to roost, ain’t they?

I am shelving the Reality Meter. It will not be updated further. I proved my point and it only took five games in to do it. The incredible Reality Meter will sit atop the page all season long as a reminder of my incredible acuity. I am a visionary and an oracle. All those talking heads on the right side of the meter could not bifurcate the truths that I proclaim.

Chargers 29 Broncos 24 The Tebow Era Begins

Sunday, October 9th, 2011
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.

John Fox Says Kyle Orton Needs the Experience

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Now now everyone, don’t you worry, the Denver Broncos are in good hands. John Fox, John Elway and Xanders? They know best, they are professionals of the highest order. Now don’t you go criticizing them for creating a quarterback controversy early in camp, or trading away Jabar Gaffney for nothing, now the coach says this:

Fox said coaches did not consider playing backup Tim Tebow in the fourth quarter, when the Packers led by at least 25 points. The team played several backups on defense late in the game, but none on offense.

“We need our starting quarterback to get experience for us to improve. That’s the idea behind that. You know he needs to get better in our system,” Fox said. “I know he gets judged on the past couple of years, but we’re trying to get him better in our system and use that experience to get better.”

Can you believe this one? Kyle Orton, a seven year veteran, Kyle Orton needs more experience for the Broncos to be successful. He needs more experience in John Fox’s amazing offense. That’s expert thinkery right there for you. Good luck waiting around for the amazing improvement, you’ll need two drafts to build what he needs to improve. I wonder what’s next, Brady Quinn needs the experience? This is getting more ridiculous by the hour and it’s playing out baby, it’s playing out.

I have now added John Fox, John Elway and Brian Xanders to the Reality Meter.

Even these buffoons can't tip the scales

Hopeless Broncos Fans Brace for a Beatdown

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Seems that Tiki is off somewhere in a ditch with his head in the sand. Way to leave the site derelict. Guess I can’t blame him, I can’t imagine life right now for Broncos fans who actually think we’re going to win a bunch of games this year.

Never in 35 years as a Broncos fan have I been so utterly apathetic to the cause. I can’t be the only one. It’s unbelievable, it really is. Even last year, even early last year I was hopeful we’d go 9-7 and maybe just maybe get a playoff spot… we all know how that went.

Colonel Klink Captain Schulz John Fox John Elway

Captain John Fox Schulz and Colonel Klink Elway

Never before have I been so bored with the Broncos. The defense? Well, it’s the bright spot, I mean Von Miller’s doing OK and all… but that offense. Wow is that offense dismal.

Last Sunday we needed the great Norris Weese out there waving his arms telling the damn coach not to run up the middle on fourth down.

We got Klis over at the Denver Compost, we got this Klis character who said we’ll “win more than we lose with Orton,” we got this Klis who thought the Broncos would go 10 and 6 or better, we got this buffoon over there making all kinds of excuses for Kyle Orton.

Skewed perception has to be another factor. How else to explain why there’s such an outcry for Tebow, who has a 1-2 career record, to replace Orton, who is 1-2 this season?

“A lot of the noise outside this building is obviously coming from the previous two years,” John Elway, the Broncos’ executive director of football operations, said in reference to the Broncos finishing 4-12 in 2010 and losing eight of their last 10 in 2009. “And that’s understandable given what we’ve been through. But (head coach) John Fox wasn’t here, I wasn’t here, most of this staff wasn’t here.

Mike Klis Denver Post

"Just Believe"

Comparing the kid’s starting record to Orton’s record this season? What a fart. That isn’t even a joke, it’s an absolute fart Klis. You’re farting out your mouth and onto the page. Holy crap is this guy grasping at straws. Way to compare a rookie coming in cold to a seven year veteran. The first one is excusable when he falters–there is still hope–the other is now tiresome and inexcusable, he is what he is.

But oh no, Elway and Fox weren’t here. John Elway claims “they still don’t know what they have in Orton,” because in the last two years they haven’t seen him play with a running game and a defense.

Earth to Elway: He still doesn’t have either of those things and he’s the same quarterback. You watched the games the last two seasons, just open your eyes for crying out loud. Doesn’t take a genius to realize how limited Cuckooman Orton is. From the same article:

There is reason for hope. In a 17-14 loss to Tennessee, the NFL’s top-ranked defense, the Broncos had a 16-play, 80-yard touchdown drive that took up more than eight minutes. They had a 15-play, 80-yard touchdown drive against Cincinnati, the league’s No. 3 defense, that lasted 8 1/2 minutes. They also had a 12-play, 80-yard touchdown drive against Oakland.

“I think we’re getting close,” Orton said. “We would have liked to have scored more than 17 points against Tennessee, but I think we’ve taken a lot of positives away. We’re a lot better third-down football team. I think in the red zone, we’re getting better. Minus the goal line stand, we were 2-for-2. So, we’re improving. Now it’s just getting the sense of urgency and getting everybody to do it right, and then I think you’ll start seeing 35 points on the board rather than 23.”

I don’t care where “Cincinnati” is ranked defensively, if it’s high it’s a fluke right now. It’s a joke. Tennessee’s defense isn’t that great either. Didn’t impress me. I see Cincinnati as a team that will be right there with the Broncos in suckitude all season and perhaps Tennessee is a 9 and 7 team at best. But oh no, did you see those amazing dink and dunk drives down the field? Those drives we manage once per game or so? Oh they were special weren’t they? We had good drives at times last year. We scored less than 21 points per game in nine games last year. We’re on track to repeat that crap and the one game where we scored 23 points was due to Eric Decker’s punt return. Way to take credit for those points Orton. I’ll be waiting for the 35 point games… maybe against the hapless Chiefs.

At least you have hope Klis. Maybe we’ll go on a big winning streak when Dumervil gets back and get that playoff berth you felt so sure about there Klis. Klis goes on to throw out a bunch of meaningless statistics trying to say Kyle Orton really is a good steady QB and plays well in the clutch. Thanks for your contribution Klis, I bet the front office is happy.

“Win more than we lose with Kyle Orton.”

Legwold chimes in with the usual spin. He’s defending his beloved practice player, claiming the defense is the problem–not Orton. Nice try Legwold.

The Broncos’ defense has surrendered at least 375 yards in 11 of those losses, at least 400 yards three times and at least 500 yards three times.

And although NFL personnel people will always consider quarterback most important piece in team building, none of the hugely significant issues listed above that the Broncos have faced over the last three seasons has anything to do with the player behind center.

NFL League Source

League source says: "Just blame the defense."

Dingleberries Legwold, dingleberries. Our frequent three and outs with clutch Kyle are a serious strain on our mediocre defense. We hand the ball back to the opposing offense time and time again, especially with the game on the line. You see that Titans team early on? Bumbling, stumbling, just like the Bengals–you wait til we play an offense. I remember games last year where our defense kept us competitive until the half, but our inability to maintain drives and score points caught up with us as usual. Our defense wears down with all these three and outs, especially in the second half. It’s BS that Orton doesn’t have a hand in that. He fails to move the chains in key spots and that’s a problem.

Legwold and Klis: eternal optimists.

At least Krieger seems to be falling off the bandwagon, but that doesn’t prevent him from spouting nonsense:

They’ve loaded the remnants of the Josh McDaniels debacle into a chartered aircraft and they’re flying it around the country as if it has a chance to compete for an NFL championship. That’s really the only possible rationale for starting a veteran quarterback in the last year of his contract.

But I’m guessing pretty much everyone in that building on Broncos Parkway knows by now it’s not true. McDaniels left a multiyear rebuilding project in his wake, and Elway and Fox are left with the unenviable job of picking up the pieces.

That’s why the shots already flying their way from unhappy fans are misdirected. They’re not responsible for any of this. They’re the cleanup crew.

“As if it had a chance to compete for an NFL Championship.” Get a load of this Krieger. Yeah buddy, you were all in, along with your pals Klis and Legwold. Oh you guys believed we’d have a great running game, a great defense. Oh and I remember what you said about Orton and Quinn: “Kyle Orton gives the Broncos credibility,” and “Brady Quinn deserves to be the backup.”

You excited Krieger? Two more losses and maybe your boy Brady Quinn gets in there. I hear he’s the future of the franchise.

“As if it had a chance.” Yeah, you thought so,¬† didn’t you Krieger?

“Don’t fire shots at Elway and Fox, they’re just the cleanup crew… misdirected anger”… what an absolute turd. Nice try Krieger, nice try. Sorry buddy, we don’t have any reasons to ass sniff “EFX” right now. What have they done for us lately? Oh yeah, botch a trade that marginalizes our rookie QB and leaves us with a journeyman at the helm, a free agent QB who is losing games?

Oh yeah, I guess trading away a good football player in Jabar Gaffney for absolute squat is simply “cleaning up McDaniel’s mess.”

We drafted Von Miller, fine, good pick. Dareus would have been a good pick. Peterson too. Just sayin’

Who did we grab in free agency? McGahee, Bunkley? Ty Warren? Not atrocious but not good either. McGahee’s fine, but he won’t last at this pace.

What did we hear in the preseason, eh? We’re gonna win more with Orton? We’ll run the ball 500 times? We’ll go with the soon to be free agent veteran because he’ll win us games? How’s that for judgement?

The Post parroting a bunch of crap, people going on about an amazing new running game (we changed one offensive lineman) Orton having a career year and Lloyd in the Pro Bowl–most definitely, right?

Sorry if I and many, many others aren’t enthused with “EFX” right now.

Win more with Orton...

They haven’t earned squat yet.

Oh yeah, there’s a game this Sunday. Sorry I almost forgot.

I should put another green peg on my reality meter right this minute.

1-3 eh? Better hope we win the San Diego game or reality will smash this team in the face much faster than I anticipated.

Titans 17 Broncos 14 – Reality is Nearly Here…

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

1 and 2.

Closing in on 1 and 3.

Not to worry, we’ll win more than we lose with Kyle Orton. The “dream team” Eagles are 1 and 2, so the playoffs aren’t out of the question for the Broncos too… right?

The Broncos offense dinked and dunked, their defense gave up a huge play in the fourth quarter and their running game was so so against a bad team. Same old Broncos in the ass end of the game. It’s been a broken record for years.

The Tennessee Titans suck. They suck. The Titans aren’t much better than Cincinnati. Better defense, that’s about it. Killing themselves with penalties left and right, practically handing the game to the opposing team.

The Broncos should have won–which goes to show how bad the Broncos really are.

This offense and the way it’s set up, this offense and especially the quarterback is incapable of big plays down the field in the fourth quarter. Totally incapable. No wonder why people always say Kyle Orton can’t get it done in the clutch, no wonder why they say he can’t muster come from behind wins.

He can’t. Can we all agree? This dink and dunk offense sucks. Boring as &^$ing hell.¬† I hope some of you people are actually enjoying yet another year of the Kyle Orton offense in Denver.

Dink and dunk takes forever to march the field, dink and dunk doesn’t win games in the fourth quarter. Our quarterback can’t throw a decent screen, he can’t evade the rush to make something happen to save his life.Our quarterback is limited with no intangibles. End of story. How much more do you need to see John Elway?

I give some credit to Willis McGahee. He runs very hard, he’s impressed me with his tenacious running. Offensively, that’s the only thing I’m impressed with.

The defense stopped the run, but Chris Johnson hasn’t started it up all season. No matter, we got whacked when it counted through the air.

John Fox going for it on fourth down didn’t bother me at all, what I took exception to is the play call. The Broncos don’t run the ball well up the middle in short yardage situations–we haven’t been able to do that for years now. The play before, McGahee ran off tackle for a couple yards and managed to drag one guy… running off tackle again would have been a better call there.

I am just about furious at this team right now. I told you people we were squandering this season and let’s face reality: We are squandering this losing season.

We failed, FAILED to embrace the future and look at us now. Stuck in the mire of mediocrity behind a journeyman quarterback who is a free agent at the end of the season. Mired in an offense that’s about as exciting as a Mongolian Cluster Fart.

We’re on our way to 1 and 4. 1 and %*%(*ing 4. Even with my prediction of 6 and 10 I figured we’d win the first two games.

Never fear, “we’ll win more than we lose with Orton.” “Orton gives us credibility.”

Are people even going to watch this team in a few more weeks? Are people going to pay good money to see this team in its current state?

I’m furious at this front office, this waffling management that was about to embrace the future and instead turned around on a dime. They decided we’d magically become a playoff team with the guy we just tried to trade.

What an insult.

We’re looking down the barrel at 1-4. Down the river on a $^ithouse door baby.

What’s the coach gonna do when we’re 1-4? When we’re 1-4 we should trade our incredible starter to the Colts and get our rookie ready during the bye week. But oh no, that’s admitting the front office made a huge mistake in giving the journeyman all the first string snaps in the preseason. If you know this John Fox character, we’ll be 1 and 4 and he’ll probably do nothing.Maybe Brady Quinn will start in week nine–gee won’t that be amazing. Better get your tickets early for that one.

This is a joke. It really is.

I will soon demand apologies and resignations. There are people in this Broncos organization who think they know football and they don’t. They don’t.

Trust John Fox? Trust John Elway and Xanders?

Why? All I see is a bad team, a bad team with a front office that made a big mistake at the beginning of training camp. I see management that thought it was going to win a bunch of games this year without changing much of the personnel on the field. I see a bad team that’s losing.

This front office lied to itself. Some of these players lied to themselves. Face it, the Broncos are no playoff team. So plain to see, I saw it from miles away. But oh no, Kyle Orton’s gonna be a Pro Bowler.

Yeah, a Pro Bowler if six or seven other guys don’t show.

Brandon Lloyd to the Pro Bowl? Not likely either.

Trade Orton now, start the kid who played well in the final three games last season and see what we’ll need to draft next year–sensible right?

Instead we’re spinning our wheels in the mud. We’ve got management that’s delusional about the talent we have. Stick with the game managing journeyman and we’ll field a hell of a running game, a hell of a defense… sorry.

Welcome to Denver, it ain’t pretty right now.

Reality is almost here and there will be no excuses.

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.
