Woody Page's will be about Fox, and what the season will be reffered to as "the dumb call"...

I'm fairly sure the Orton turnovers will be minimized and the 95 yd TD drive by Tenn will be the story.

"Orton gives gutsy performance, defense lets team down"...

Is there a way to blame Bronco fans? I know it was at Tennessee, but there has to be a way to blame the fans all the same...

"Tebow fans to be blamed for loss"

NASHVILLE - The Broncos' tough loss at Tennessee is attributable to one thing: Denver has the worst fans in the league because they want Tebow to start. Yes, the team lead by Orton may have shot themselves in the foot and the coach may have made the worst coaching mistake of the weekend, but this loss clearly falls at the feet of Broncos fans. If Broncos fans were more supportive of Orton, he would have been psychically aided in his ability to see the other teams' defenders in his passing lanes. If Broncos fans coddled Orton, he would have been magically powered by their well-wishes to the point that he would have delivered some magical plays.

Broncos Future On the Right Track

The time-honored maxim is that home-field advantage
is worth three points, therefore the Broncos battled the
Titans to what was effectively a tie Sunday in Nashville.
Rookie linebacker Von Miller recorded a sack AND a forced
fumble, and newcomer Jonathan Willhite also sacked the
quarterback, proving John Elway's plan to rebuild the
defense is on track.

Second round draft picks Rahim Moore and Orlando Franklin
finished the game without having made any glaring mistakes,
and rookie seventh round draft pick TE Virgil Green caught
a pass, ensuring the 2011 draft class will be a successful
one.

While it is true that former Bronco Daniel Graham caught
the game-winning (tying) touchdown, it is not clear that
the Broncos ignored him as a receiver while he was here
AND ignored him as a receiver when he was there. In the
end zone that is. A highly-placed source in Broncos team
management loudly insisted they have always been aware
Graham could catch the football.

The actual headlines are up. The only two people who mention the QB situation are Woody Paige, who wonders why Tebow's success in the redzone isn't at least considered, but then figures its to protect Orton's ego, and Dusty Saunders who whines about Tebow being interviewed after the game.

Dusty Saunders: CBS crew was fine, but postgame was Tebow time
By Dusty Saunders

Does Lance Berkman's catch count if Cardinals fans didn't see it? (Ed Szczepanski, Getty Images )News and views from a weekend couch potato with a thumping thumb and an eager ear:

While Bill Macatee and Steve Tasker, CBS Sports' sixth team in its NFL broadcasting lineup, didn't perform like No. 1, they kept Sunday's Broncos-Titans game in a clear focus.

Tasker, in particular, was up to the task of pinpointing key offensive and defensive schemes of both teams, despite leaning too heavily on the traditional cliches: "He does a great job . . . " or "He does a nice job . . . ."

Meanwhile "Gridiron Grill" and "Broncos Extra," KOA Radio's post- game talkathons, could have been called "Tim Tebow's Fan Forum," as most of Sunday's callers, upset by the Broncos loss, wanted Tebow to be more involved in the offense, even if not starting at quarterback.

Hosts Mike Rice and David Treadwell attempted to convince callers that Tebow's lack of playing time isn't the only problem with the current team. But most Tebow fans didn't agree.

Bottom line after more than four hours of talk: The Tim Tebow Bandwagon is not slowing down.

Maybe KOA should go for eight hours of talk after Broncos games.

Of course there is. Or at least there's a way to hide behind the fans with a pansy headline like this:

"What the fans are saying: Orton isn't winner, Fox makes key error."

Seriously how weak is that? Instead of coming out and writing an article that states the obvious "Orton Isn't a Winner, Fox makes Key Error" you hide behind the guise that you're only regurgitating fan opinion. That is sad, soft, journalism.

What is with you?! Are you playing some massively dry wit character?

In the first place, that's my gig.

In the second place, are you even serious?

DP excuse should be that Titans DL's hands and arms are too big and therefore ruined what would have been perfectly thrown passes for first downs.

No doubt.

I have never seen in my life so many sports journalists unite in support behind a player with a firmly established record as a loser. Its the strangest thing I have ever seen in sports media. Its as though Orton is a feel-good story...the QB born with only one arm, who grew up raised by lions barely surviving in Darfur who eventually saved all the children in the world from starvation.

They treat Orton with kid gloves and with pity while alienating fans (readers). Maybe this kind of thing is why people don't read print media anymore.

He was extremely kind to Orton. He basically concludes the article by inferring that Orton is treated unfairly.
