When your QB can't throw, what else is there to do?

I personally like a 3-4 D but I agree with you on we just got a good 4-3 set up and its kicking ass why would you try and change that ?

And by the way, during Orton's turn at QB last year, the team never scored more than 24 points in a game, so it's not like we were lighting up the scoreboard with either guy.

They will next year. Josh Chapman is sitting on IR after being a beast for Alabama even after he tore his ACL. Once Chapman is healthy and Grigson raids PHI now that Reid got fired that front seven will be pretty damn good IMHO.

Also, their defense is still pretty crappy this year even with the scheme change. They are younger and getting experience though. Manusky has been fairly unimpressive as DC though just as I expected.

My point is this notion that we don't have the personal to run a 3-4 is a fallacy.

This.

The Broncos success on offense this year is all Manning. I just can't wait for Mccoy to go somewhere else, see another team flop because of him.

Actually, he was damn good last yr with tebow,he recognized his QBs limitations & adjusted accordingly.

that is one of the biggest parts of a OC's job. that's one of the toughest things to find in a good OC. play calling involves a certain feel for the game that certain people have a great feel on and some don't.
but putting together game plans and attacking is more of a issue to find than play calling because it's the process that leads up to success that some can't understand.

You really buying into 99% run plays on 1st downs? I don't care if you have the worst throwing qb in the history of the NFL, if opposing teams know that you are going to run on 1st down, then your offense becomes 1 dimensional, of course you are going to struggle to get any 1st downs, let alone sustain drives and score points.

Bootlegs, misdirection. At first, the option-read was great, but when teams figured that out, McCoy failed at further improvisation.

What are the options when you have tebow as your QB? Throw an incomplete pass into the sidelines/grass,throw an int or run where you have your best chance to gain some yards. That's the problem with tebow,he can't throw the ball,so your offense is forced into being one dimensional.

Sometimes,like with tebow,you have to realize that there's nothing that can be done that will fix the fact that tebow can't play QB in the NFL.

Tebow didn't have the chops to audible nor the chops to throw the ball
It was basically whatever call was made from the sideline had to be the play
while the defense had the ability to adjust

The NFL knows what when down in Denver contrary to what the zealots in Tebowland believe

Well, I am hoping that Jax will give people a chance to shut up, or eat crow about Tebow.

what misdirection or bootleg was there to run? teams were daring Tebow to throw and the only team he really burned was Pitt on the TD pass to DT and that was mostly DT just beasting on Ike Taylor for tons of Yac.
Tebow could do hand offs and read option and so that's what we did.
we won a division title and playoff game behind it.

Tebow has a negative effect on qb's above him on depth charts. Orton and Sanchez. Where ever Tebow goes, most likely will end up in a situation in which Tebow is given the starting job, so as to avoid a qb controversy and put butts in the seats.

Maybe run the kind of game plan that worked so well against the Steelers and Vikings.

15-20 passes in the first three quarters with 5+ of them being deep shots down field. Play the 4th quarter by ear. You let Tebow do that and he wins you big games, just like he did for us. He's got one of the better deep balls in the league and we failed to make use of it with any consistency last season.

How is this different from every other rookie/young first time starter ever, including Peyton Manning and all the successful rookie starters in the league this year?

I can't recall the last time I've seen a rookie given significant audible responsibilities. Tebow being given the power to run option plays and on the fly switch to a QB run is as much or more leverage than most rookie QBs ever get.


McCoy leaving isn't a big deal to me at all. The big turning point for this season to me was when they let Manning just take over the offense and dropped pretty much all of McCoy's plays from last year and Carolina, running basically nothing but the former Colts offense under Manning. If McCoy leaves we either promote Gase, bring in Tom Moore, or do both and call Tom Moore a "special assistant".

i favor Wisenhunt a bit more though since his philosophy would likely fit in more with the smash mouth style Fox likes.
though Manning at QB means you really just need a solid running game and then allow him to do his work.
