He wasn't the only one. I knew it wasn't true going into this game. I just didn't realize we might actually be worse than last year. Sweet Jesus...

I don't think we're worse than last year buddy. We got owned by arguably the best QB in the NFL (at least top 3) and the defending SB champs.

First, screw you Rev.

Second, despite this disaster there were some positives. Decker is getting better, the offensive line got better and Miller had two sacks. Most of all, the Chiefs won which means we're back in the Luck bowl. We'll be 1-4 at the bye and may get to see Tebow play.

Get back to me at the end of the season. This team is going to have to be very lucky to match last year's win total.

I don't think they will have a choice at that point.

Yeah. And he'll play just well enough to take us out of the Luck sweepstakes.

Wanna bet? They'll march Orton out there to a booing crowd and sell us on

1) We need to get better on defense
2) We need to run the ball better
3) We need the OL to give him more time

And of course...

4) He gives us the best chance to win.

and as long as ticket salers/no shows stays consistent they will gat away with it. But coming home from miami at 1-5 with Orton in charge, could make for a real quiet stadium.

They dont care, Elway will give his line that "winning will bring the fans back and Kyle has played very well this season."

I agree with The Dave. This song and dance is about making money. If they are losing games and not building towards the futures, the fans will abandon the team.

So in your opinion, the team does not believe Tebow can play and isn't going to waste time... Or is their another reason.

First, I love you

Second, seriously go eff yourself. That's a ridiculous position to take after a game this embarrassing.

It's holding the albatross of "when are we going to play him? buy your tickets and find out!" above the fan base.

The same reason they publicly announced Orton was on the block before " we're gonna play him and not a snap for Tebow!" after SELLING that excitement.

Don't count on it.

This is the only way real change is going to get forced on the FO. By the fans bleeding Bowlen to death (empty seats), which is fine with me.

Call it tough love.

Sometimes they need to be shown that the status quo is not the proper way.

It's not about wasting time and frankly, most of us DON'T CARE what the team believes. I flat out don't care. It's not important, its not an opinion I value. This isn't working, even if he's more polished (which he is). We don't want to see it. People aren't going to pay to watch it. They need to get it through their heads. We've accepted that the team is going through a tough time and it will take awhile to turn it around...fine, but at least throw us a bone since we're NOT going anywhere, anyway. No one is under the impression Tebow will be Superman out there, there will be huge mistakes, poor throws, up for grabs balls etc. But at least it will be exciting, plays will be made out of nothing and it will take our minds off the scoreboard. If you are going to drag us through a crappy rebuild again, at least make it a little fun and allow Tebow to be properly evaluated in a game.

I get this weird feeling that we'll eventually cut ties with Tebow. He'll then go to a team like Philly..wait his turn behind Vick until he is inevitably hurt and tear it up..making us look like idiots for letting such a talent go for nothing.

Wouldn't be the first time that happened to us.
