Except for 2 games it was 55 minutes of pain followed by 5 (or less) minutes of joy.
And that was the wins! The blowouts or the loss to kFc at home with the playoffs on the line and he could only muster 3 points was/were just plain embarrassing.
Maybe that's the difference. Some people enjoy watching him play and some people don't.
Kyle Orton is what I would describe as excruciating -- a sense of dread, knowing that as the game goes on, he gets worse. That when the big moments come, he will be smaller than the moment.
With Tebow it was the reverse. Can't win 'em all, and in the NFL there will dismal days. But the sense was he got better as the game went longer, and that for the most part he would come up with one drive if one drive is what was needed.
But, I understand -- you enjoyed watching Kyle Orton play more. Takes all kinds.
