Archive for Kyle Orton

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.

Woody Paige Makes Sense (For Once)

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Unreal. I actually agree with Woody Paige. The dunce hat has come off Woodrow, for the time being at least. He warns the masses blacklisting Tebow and reminds us all of how awful Kyle Orton was last season (“stats” be damned.)

ESPN analyst Merril Hoge is the engineer on this runaway locomotive, but so many others — inside and outside the Broncos — are traveling along for the ride.

I’m not jumping aboard.

Less than a month ago, Tebow was deemed to be the Broncos’ starter — the returning starter. He started the final three games last season. And Orton, for those who have forgotten, was about to be traded to Miami — at his own and the Broncos’ wishes.

Orton has lost eight of nine, 14 of 17 and 17 of his past 22 starts.

Much has been made of Orton’s lack of a running game and a miserable defense in such starts as Oakland (59-14), San Diego (35-14) and Arizona (43-14). Tebow had the same backs and defense at Oakland (39-23) and at home against Houston (24-23) and San Diego (33-28). In the 13 games Orton started, the Broncos scored touchdowns inside the red zone on 17 of 104 trips (one on a Tebow run). With Tebow as the starter, the Broncos scored touchdowns 6-of-8 times inside the 20.

Too true. More from Woodrow’s mailbag:

(C) Tebow, in his three games, last year outplayed Orton, with the same running game and defense that everyone talks about that restricted Orton from being the greatest quarterback since Johnny Unitas​; Tebow, in his first start and with a limited playbook, had the Broncos within seven points in Oakland, after Oakland had destroyed Orton, who was awful, and the Broncos in Denver; Tebow beat the Texans with a late touchdown run, and although people claimed the Texans were no good, they were still in the playoff chase at that point, and Tebow played San Diego closer than Orton did, in the finale.

In other news, someone knows the truth about Tebow’s “throwing motion”

“If you look at what he did in college, he played in one of the toughest divisions there was . . . He had success throwing the ball. He got it away in time. I don’t remember a lot of balls knocked down at the line of scrimmage . . .

“If you change the thing that really made the guy you take away from his ability to play the game, because now he’s thinking about his delivery as opposed to playing the game and throwing the ball on time, and that’s what it’s all about.

“If you can throw it accurately and on time, I don’t care what your delivery looks like. Don’t change his delivery. Get his feet right, because he’s never taken a snap from under center. Let’s work on that part and see how the rest goes.”

That someone, none other than Joe Montana. I also heard “Boomer Esiason” spouted off like the ignoramus he is and said “Tebow can’t throw.” Amazing journalistic integrity ain’t it? I won’t even quote the rest. Don’t need to hear anything more from that loser who never got a ring and won’t be going into Canton either.

A Thesis on Kyle Orton Starting in Denver

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

In 2009 the Broncos regular season record was 8-8.

Josh McDaniels wanted to trade him just after the 2010 draft.

The Broncos 2010 regular season record was 4 and 12.

A couple weeks ago John Elway, John Fox and Co. were willing to trade him.

Now on the heels of an incredibly accurate training camp and two mindblowing preseason games against the Dallas Cowboys (6-10) and the Buffalo Bills (4-12), Kyle Orton is once again the Denver Broncos starting quarterback.

 

The following is my most important scripture of this year.

Denver Broncos: Piss Poor Management of Tebow

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

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.

Breaking…

Mike Klis, John Clayton: Broncos Will Demote Tebow

Friday, August 19th, 2011

On the heels of one of the greatest preseason performances by a quarterback in Broncos history, the great Brady Quinn is on track to beat out Tim Tebow as the Broncos true backup QB to Kyle Orton.

Quinn clearly outplayed both Orton and Tebow last week in an amazing display of fourth quarter heroics against the Dallas Cowboys third and fourth team scrubs.

“His ability to lead our scrubs and wreak havoc on guys who may not even make the team in Dallas was pretty exceptional,” said an unknown Broncos insider.

Mike Klis of the Denver Compost wrote: “…it was Quinn who outperformed them both in the team’s first preseason game last Thursday at Dallas.” Klis added: “Quinn not only led the Broncos to two touchdowns, both touchdowns came in the fourth quarter. …When evaluating quarterbacks, extra credit should be given to touchdowns in the fourth quarter.”

Indeed, Quinn’s scoring drives during crunch time of last weeks Dallas preseason game were nothing short of legendary. It was an impeccable aerial spectacle that many a Broncos fan will forever remember.

“I’ll always remember where I was on August eleventh 2011,” said Barry Mumphery, a Boulder Colorado native, “I’ve been selling shirts on eBay that have a Broncos logo over the date 08/11/2011 and sales have really skyrocketed.”

“It was an incredible second half, just incredible, I just hope I don’t get caught by the NFLPA,” Barry said.

The accurate, unbiased Klis also mentioned, “With the NFL no longer forcing teams to make a No. 3 quarterback designation on game day, there’s a chance Tebow would be used for the occasional “Tebow package” plays, but Quinn would get the longer-term backup role.”

In addition to Quinn’s fourth quarter heroics, his monumental practice play has reverberated across the nation and professional sportswriters are taking notice. The always on point ESPN Senior Writer John Clayton further explains Brady Quinn’s incredibly quick rise to greatness:

But Tebow, in his second season, still hasn’t developed a consistent way of delivering the football. When throwing short passes to his right, Tebow, a left-hander, opens his hips too much and skips the football off the ground like a rock across water. Too often, his eyes lock onto his first target. His throwing delivery lacks a consistent release point. With proud veterans such as Champ Bailey, Brian Dawkins, Elvis Dumervil and others on the team, Fox would lose the team if he started the quarterback who would give the team the lesser chance to win. Although Tebow is exciting and an icon everyone in the world can root for, he’s not ready for prime time or an NFL starting QB job.

Ah yes, all of Broncos Nation certainly witnessed the ineffective debacle that was Tim Tebow last week in Dallas. Clayton’s analysis of the much maligned Timmy Teebs is spot on. Clayton adds, “…there will be no formal announcement of who is backing up Orton. Why? Because it probably will be Brady Quinn, who has outperformed Tebow in training camp.”

Clearly the Broncos will move on, upward and away from a rookie quarterback who managed to score an average of 24 points per game in his first three starts last season. Tebow’s paltry 6 for 7 and 91 yards plus a measly quarterback rating of 118 last week surely downgraded his stock, cementing his rightful place as the Broncos third string quarterback–and as a national laughing stock. The expert piece by the always Broncos-knowledgeable Clayton also states Tebow is not ready for a starting job and that Kyle “The Man” Orton bulked up an incredible twelve pounds in the offseason. It indicates Orton is dead serious about leading the aging Broncos Tebow-hating veterans to a championship this year and ushering in a lengthy new era of Broncos excellence.

Wake the kids, phone the neighbors folks, Tebowmania be damned because Orton’s ripped and the Mighty Quinn is the real number two in Denver.

The Real Merril Hoge
