Default 0-5 into the bye is unfortunately possible

Am I the only one out there hoping that this happens with Orton behind center?

Let's face it - we possibly have a shot at beating the Bengals and Titans albeit a small shot and virtually no shot at GB and SD. If this happens will be maybe see an adjustment being made?

I doubt it but one can hope.

Meh, I think what he's trying to say is that long-term it might be a better fix.

He's not hoping to lose to spite Orton, but for Luck/some change, etc.

I think.

Why so you can then have your last little myopic dream shattered. When a team is bad its easy to point to the QB who is playing very avg. Look at Campbell in Oakland though, he had a fumble, didn't lose it, the team afraid to even let him pass the ball, all he does are draws and screens, but he has been winning more then Orton because he has a killer rb.

Go ahead and wait Broncos will eventually put Tebow in and still lose. Why? because the oline isn't very good, the rbs stink, the dt aren't good, the DE don't do much and the linebacking quite honestly IMO the worst in the NFL when DJ is not playing.

After seeing Orton Monday night...0-5 is going to happen with him as the starter, i have no doubt. 2-14/3-13 are very possible with this team! Buffalo and KC are the only teams i see us beating! ****ing pathetic...as Cubs fans always say, there's always next year!

As a Broncos fan, I am definitely not hoping that the Broncos go 0-5 to start the season...I would assume only a rival team's fan would hope that we lose our first 5

i dont think anyone is hoping we are lose, more like realistically predicting that this team does not match up well against ANYONE. atleast last year this team could successfully pass the ball often, this year even that seems to have been blown up.

I think we win at least 1 of the next 2, I don't see why we can't beat KFC at least once (if they keep sucking as bad as last week maybe sweep them) I think we have a good shot at Oakland next time if healthy.

We are going to be killed vs GB and Patsys, there will be at least 5 really ugly games, and another 5 like last week.

If we go 6-10 that will show improvement over mCd and we should have another good draft and next year the only excuse will be breaking in a new QB (and RB) ok maybe a couple excuses until 2014

I hope they win every game but reality says they win 2-4 at best and will be in the Luck sweepstakes

We can lse 5 in a row but if we lose this one, it might be more on all the injuries. We are not very good as it is but we are thin at many positions. Desperate win for Sunday.

Also, to go along with that. If we lose this one, we'll be down 0-2 at home out of the gate. Who knows though. With all the sensitive guys, it might play better on the road. Doubt it, but it could happen.

I wish in some crazy U.S. Immigration Services mix up Luck would get deported just so I would stop hearing about him.

Even if we were fully healthy, we would lose because of these 3 reasons:

1. Orton
2. Run D
3. O line

Correct - I want a 16-0 season but that's not going to happen. My second choice is to be competitive, at least, if you're just going to stink it up. That means showing us that you (coaching/FO) actually want to win as well and are willing to make changes on the fly to make this team competitive.

If your veteran QB is horrible all the way to week 15 don't make the change - that shows us that you're half witted and slightly retarded for not making the change earlier.

You bastards....we have to play the Colts in a couple weeks....if you take the cellar from us early in the season it's gonna loom all year long.

And in this sort of race, there's no silver medal for second place.

Jamaal Charles is going to shred us again. He's going to run the Chorfs right out of contention.

I only use the term hope because i'm still optimistic that the coaching staff/FO isn't willing to let us suffer thru another season like last years. I'm optimistic that they will make a change earlier than they did last year. That's why I used the term hope.

Orton is not the answer - not sure Tebow, Quinn, Weber is either but I am sure that Orton is not. So why suffer thru that pain anymore? Let one of the youngsters get some experience - whoever that may be.
