If decisions were made based on one week, I’d have been outta here after my first start!

Too bad Orton is being evaluated on years of play rather than one game...

Hey John, Kyle is 5-19 in his last 24 starts. Can we base the decision on that? Please?

Perfect, no tebow package anymore.

Great. We should just play 10 on offense.

Luck here we come.

Yeah, it is really weird that this one game defense is being used for a seven year vet. I expected it from dumb fans and analysts, not from Elway.

Maybe they are saying they haven't watched any tape on Orton? This would at least explain why he is starting.

Really John? Really? You think we're mad about one game? Jesus Christ...

It's a good thing you didn't need to be a perfect pocket passer to get on the field, or you probably never would have.

I tried to explain to some on this board that there was no way Orton would get yanked once they got to the goalline and Tebow inserted. This isn't surprising to me at all (but is quite disappointing)

All too true.

Elway's statement might've made sense had Bore-ton been a prized rookie.

Yeah invalid point, but I appreciate the attempt at lols from him. I'd appreciate him making winning his top priority more though.

Don't do **** that is proven to work. Just do **** that is proven not to. Apparently this is Fox's coaching philosophy. Can you say Championship?

John...you're the man, but Orton's performance on Monday night was a microcosm of his play during his 2 years here in Denver. We're not that stupid.

True. But if decisions were made on relevant credentials, you wouldn't have had a job in the first place.

If you look closely at John's twitter photo under black light you'll notice a phrase in watermark.

!kcul rof kcus...!kcul rof kcus...!kcul rof kcus...

Someone must and will break this code one of these days.

It's going to be a long 8 or so weeks before Tebow's escalators are negated.

I never expected much from the 2011 Bronco season..... With orton starting, I expect even less. I will watch football, but look froward to another high draft pick. Hopefully there is a top rated DT available to us.

Hopefully the team #1 overall was stupid enough to draft qb last year so we can trade up!!!
