He at least gives us a chance.

It's not debatable anymore.

I have to agree. He plays QB like a bull in a china shop but there's something about the guy. Or its just that we have been completely void of fight on this time for a long time. I miss the days of John Elway who'd give everything he had until the it was tripple zeros on the clock. Tebow has that. I liked it very much

I'd rather fire Fox tham ever start Orton again.

There has been this slowly building undercurrent for Tebow over the last 5 games that really felt to me like a revolution. I for one am so glad that this has finally happened. For the rest of the season, win or lose, it can only get better in my mind. I hope to never see Kyle Orton play another football game for the Broncos.

I'm not sure it ever was...

Agree.

Although, Tebow did not look good at passing the ball. More than half of his balls were terribly off target. He just seems to lift the team up somehow.

First off...I've never been more excited b/c of a loss in my life. Second off, did anybody else see that illegal contact/pass interference on Matt Willis in the back of the end zone on the last play? He was pushed while the ball was on its way to the end zone.

Yup.

Proof that anything is debatable. It just takes one idiot and his ill-conceived notions of reality, and there will be a debate...

By the way, why are people surprised by Tebow's performance and effect on the team? We saw it last year as well. Are people's memories just that short?

I wonder how much this changes if he actually gets reps with the first team or a gameplan that takes advantages of his talents? (I'm not talking blowing up the offense and installing the Urban Meyer, system, I'm talking about a few bootlegs here and there)

Well let's see what happens now that teams will be able to game plan him.

He also had some absolutely amazing throws. That's kind of part of the deal with a developing QB...

Tebow has the down-field arm, and given time he makes that connection with Decker for an 80+ yard TD.

Tebow's bringing back the mile high magic, baby. Bring on the rest of the schedule.

Not sure if anyone has spoke on this yet but I noticed Marcus Thomas took part in stuffing a few runs for no gain.. he had 8 total tackles which isn't bad for a dt.. really hoping this guy can start playing up to his potential

I was impressed by Tebow today. We didn't win the game, but he put us within reach. Had he completed the pass on his second series to Decker, we may have won.

I'm all for Tebow going the rest of the way. Orton has brought nothing. Near misses don't count, though, and Tebow will be bogged down by the same defense that has been here, along with the marginal running game and mixed bag of receivers. If he can overcome all that, I'll be firmly in his camp.

huh??

Did you notice how the "D" forced plenty of punts in the 2nd half? Not a complete "Orange Crush" turnaround, but they had a lot more fire too.

But if Tebow can extend some drive beyond 3 and out, unlike Orton usually does, the defense gets some time to rest up before trying to stop a team from scoring again.

Our interior run defense seemed pretty sound today. But we were crap on the edge and at linebacker. Our run defense was a real mixed bag, but Thomas seemed to be an upgrade.

Maybe it was the 10 beers but I don't remember any amazing throws. He had a huge impact on this game but his passing was far below average.

Did Rahim Moore concuss Mike Tolbert? This kid can really hit.. He looks like the type of young player that could be an elite player at his position in a few years.. him and Miller were such good picks

Nnnnnnno, there weren't any amazing throws. It wasn't the beer.

Tebow was awesome out there with his energy, leadership and legs... but his throws were not pretty. He completed 4. One was a screen.

But, hopefully the staff can put some staples in there that he can complete. D's are going to start stacking it up and coming after him. So, they'll need to get right to work figuring out ways to counter that. The screen (like Moreno today) is one nice way.

This is not true. The pass on the two pt conversion attempt to Lloyd was on the money with a small window. Peyton Manning couldnt have thrown that pass any better.

Put on the flame suit... I completely agree with you... but trust me, put on the flame suit. Hilarious!

Besides that, I agree the kid is as fun to watch as it gets... BUT... This "I feel so good about the way we lost" stuff is going to get old.

No way Orton executes that screen for the TD the way Tebow did! Orton would have fetaled up and taken the sack or worse!

It was ugly as hell and his foot work on that pass was piss poor. Manning will throw a better pass then Tebow 9 times out of 10.

Now one of the greatest QBs ever to play couldn't throw that pass any better then Tebow threw it. It's comments like that that make people hate Tebow. 54,000 passing yards 399 TDs 65% career completion percent couldn't throw a fade better then Tebow on that play. My lord.

Maybe if you would have said Eli or Archie but Peyton? Have you seen Peyton Manning play football?

Im not the one comparing Tebow and Mannings throwing abilities, but Tebow put the pass right into Lloyds hands and he dropped it.. not sure how it was "ugly as hell"

I haven't seen the replay, but didn't the defender get a hand on it as well? Anyway, not sure I like the call since it's all or broke. It's the same **** Orton was throwing. Fades to the end zone. I was thinking Lloyd? should've came back to the ball.

Yea it was knocked out of his hands but still catchable imo.. I also hated that call.. why not a qb sneak or mcgahee ???

Oh, so if Tebow becomes the greatest player of all-time and overcomes all of this teams' deficiencies you'll be in his camp? Ha!

Stay douchetastic.

Go root for another team.
