...a sign of the times. He also always wears the same ****ing Ship Sticks hat.

Also a good vid for those to hear clips from the team about the switch.

Seems like there's a lot of respect and friendship around the locker room for Orton. Don't feel sorry for him, but I do think he has had an uphill battle from the time he arrived.

We've got 11 weeks to see if Timmy has what it takes. That's not really fair to him, either.. as most young QB's get more time than that. (Plus a full offseason.) But, it is what it is. Hopefully he can step up and put the notion of drafting a QB next April to rest.

It was common for Roman Generals to stop shaving after terrible losses to mourn the deaths of their men.


...that's all I have.

Kyle Orton is a fat gaul.

Timmius Tebowus owns him.

The Amish remove facial hair as a sign of shame to the larger community.

Appropriate.

Or open their veins with a sword after a defeat.

Peter the Great forcibly shaved the beards of the Boyars to symbolize their loss of power over the Russian state.

I think Orton is a likably guy, he is quiet, he seems to take his job seriously and I know he spend a lot of time with the offensive lineme.

It is what it is, basicly what Tebow has to do is play well enough that we are not going to be in a position to draft any of the top QBs - if he wins 6 games and takes us out of the top 10 in the draft we will miss out on both Landry Jones and Andrew Luck for sure, it would make his job a lot more secure so he has double motivation that way.

Either most fans wanted Cutler or Tebow instead of Orton at QB, so I am sure that bothered him. But he got his money, so he needed to perform, but mostly didn't and worse, made an offense rather dull with his lack of play making skills.

Clean shaven / long face. That's the look of a man who's been broken by the pressures of a terrible fan base and a 4 million dollar tax bill.

Don't feel sorry for the dude, he will make millions this year. In the end, you need your QB to be more than whatever Orton is, especially in Denver.

I figured he has a lot more time on his hands.

Unfortunately, clean-shaven doesn't make he look any better, on or off the field.




Like I said before...He's life is looking up. Same money...no more pounding or boos. He'll be able to walk 18 holes on Monday's.

Great post Popps.

Sure...all except the "Timmy" moniker. It brings "6 yr.-old" or "Special Olympic" to mind. Why do people need to attempt cute little names when their being condescending?

Ya that's totally what I got from that, too. Pure, unadulterated slander. Damn him.

Oh yes, that terrible fan base that won't tolerate boring, mediocre, and uninspired play at the QB position. Those assholes... ::)

WTF you are a class of 2011 joiner, aren't you supposed to be a Tebow nut nuzzler?

Now if he'd only pay more than $12 for a haircut.

It's too late, Kyle. Bridget wants to have Tim's child, but since Tim's a virgin it could only be with in vitro, but then there'd be all those leftover zygots ... and they'd have to be kept "alive" until the rapture.
