Packers 49 Broncos 23 – Reality is Here

Reality is here.

Don’t think for a second that playing the kid for one snap in that dumb play will do anything to quiet the masses. That dumb play that McDaniels ran twice in Jacksonville last year. We couldn’t block up the middle then and we can’t now either.

Couple things to take away from this loss: Orton  has a knack for throwing picks for touchdowns in big games. Von Miller looked good… Eric Decker’s a player…

Well that’s about it. My prediction of 6 and 10 doesn’t look too bad so far. We should beat terrible teams. We have a marginal chance of beating average teams and we will get trounced by good teams. I will say that Green Bay’s defense is suspect. Few sacks this year, they get lit up through the air. Their defense better shape up if they want to go far in the playoffs.

I feel sorry for people like that Horvil Tiki who thought we’d come out of this game with a win. Goes to show you his homer ways can’t be trusted.

Next week we face San Diego at home. The Chargers are not playing all that well.

I will have an announcement later this week.

First Tebow Billboard Arrives (Karl Gehring Denver Post)

I don’t care what anyone says, I think it’s hilarious. Maybe there will be more. It’s likely after we slog through a few more weeks of banal mediocrity on a level hitherto never before seen. Only a weenie would get bent out of shape over this.  Good for this company, I bet one swoosh dot com or whatever the hell it is just got a ton of hits.

We're getting rooked out of Timmy Teebs (Karl Gehring Denver Post)

By the way, I wonder if the Broncos have opened up any communication with the Colts yet. Probably not. But they should. I’d tell them we have a younger version of Kerry Collins available for half a ham sandwich.

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.

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.

Reality is Coming…

Broncos 24 Bengals 22 – By the Skin of Their Teeth

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Reuters Photo

The Denver Broncos basically played the Denver Broncos today. Some will claim the running game is back, the run defense is fixed and the Broncos are sitting proud at the top of the division.

Enjoy it while it lasts.

I saw two bad teams playing out there today.

The Broncos gave lowly Cincinnati every chance to win this game with a field goal and the Bengals screwed the proverbial pooch.

The real schedule begins next week against the Titans in Nashville. From there on out it won’t be pretty. We played a bad football team today at home and just eeked out a win.

We can run against the lowly Bengals, we can pass protect and we can defend their running game. We will not be able to do these things against the better teams.

All things considered though, Kyle Orton was a monster out there and the running game and defense is back baby! This team is sitting pretty atop the division!

McGahee is a beast!

Enjoy it while it lasts Broncos faithful. P.P. will weather the likes Mike Klis and his glowing assessments of the playoff-bound Broncos.

For a week.

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.


The Tebow Billboard: Blame the Broncos Management

Thursday, September 15th, 2011
Colonel Klink Sergeant Schultz John Fox John Elway

Sergeant John Fox Schultz and Colonel Klink Elway

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

Don’t blame Tebow.

Don’t blame Orton.

Don’t blame the fans.

Elway Fox Tebow

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

Piss. Poor.

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

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

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

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

The Denver Broncos management should have seen it too.

Kyle Orton

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

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

"Trade Gaffney Now"

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

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

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

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

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

"Just Believe"

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tebow Raiders

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sorry pal, it’s not going to work.

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

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

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

Same old, same old

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

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

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

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

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

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

We didn’t. Big mistake.
