It's been a pretty damn awesome ride thus far.

Props to McD and King Neckbeard. I hope we keep this up. A well-deserved bye week on the docket and then Pittsburgh/Baltimore. It doesn't get any easier.

Enjoy 6-0 Bronco fans.

Attention everyone this is what Jason Kidd would call a complete 360..............
















and I'm on the same boat.

I just love this formula. Complete team victories with the juice coming from all directions. (Offense/defense/STs.)

I still think we've got to kick up the offense a notch, but we're doing what we need to do to get the job done, and tonight we won a high-scoring game.

This team just seems to have the will to stick around.

I know this is a thread about QBs, but this is a team thing. Kyle just fits the mentality of this kind of team perfectly.

Yes. Some of these throws are still mind-boggling-ly poor... but then the next will be a downfield beauty that confuses the shti out of me.

Oh... NOW I see what you did there. Clever edit.

Completely agree btw. Don't think Orton could play like this anywhere else.

rev, way to go man, its fun when the squad competes at the highest level...

makes rooting for them so much more worth your time

at the end of the shanny era there just wasn't anymore desire....anymore will....

we can close the book, we can move forward, and we can do it together.

good to have you on board, and in a non homer way

I'm not sure those poor throws are as poor as you think, man. The guy just doesn't put the ball in harm's way if he can help it. He threw a couple of balls tonight that could have been better, but what QB doesn't throw a couple of bad balls in a game? Honestly, look at his completion percentage. That alone tells us that he's making good, smart throws on a regular basis.



He's getting more comfortable every week. He's never going to be a consistent down-field threat, but he's picking his spots, and like the TD to Sheffler tonight, if teams want to get cute and give him single-coverage or mismatches, he'll fling it down the field.

I love having the great coach on our side. We've been spoiled with Shanny, and now with Josh making the team really rise up.

Orton is just like Brady the year he led them to the SB when he replaced Bledsoe. He just goes in there and executes. In fact, he did it so well the team voted to keep him as the starter when Bledsoe was healthy enough to play again! I doubt he tears up any record books, but he is learning and getting better every week and not making costly errors.

I seriously thought this is what we would see from Orton in this offense until it gets a little more second nature to him. It is very similar to the Tiller Offense he ran at Purdue in some areas, but completely different with others. This offense is still scratching the surface and the screen plays are not even that potent yet. Orton is playing winning football, and they are not even hitting on all cylinders yet!

When Mediator says stuff like this I get all giddy.
