Default Giving Dual Credit for the Near Comeback

1. Tebow...and we will leave it at that.

2. Lost in this is the way that the Defense played in the second half. They gave up 6 points in the entire second half. They made some adjustments, got sacks, forced turnovers and got our offense back on the field to make it a game.

I know that this is going to be Timmy's day but I didn't want to leave the D out as well.

(p.s. So glad Champ is back!)

I agree. The team really showed up. Ayers got a sack fumble and Miller continued his streak of a sack every game. Goodman has started to approach Nate Jones bad. But really given the circumstances, it was nice to see us make an effort and the coaching was better.

If Orton could have even mustered any semblance of a drive in the end of the 2nd period, the Dolts never would have gotten the ball back with time to throw that long bomb.

Orton was effing PUTRID out there. TERRIBLE. HORRIBLE. I cannot believe how he crumbled in the best chance for him to shine. Champions make the most of those times. Orton is just a chump.

If I could, I would cut his a$$ tonight and send him packing. Pay him his effing money and kick him out of the building.

I don't see why people were down on the McGahee signing. He brought a patient, power runner with vision here on a cheap contract. The only reason he wasn't starting in Baltimore is because Ray Rice is a Top 5 RB in the NFL. He was a welcomed addition to our team.

And yes, props to the OL -- and a big props to Orlando Franklin. HE MAULED.

Im loving me some McGahee right now
Liked the signing, but did not think he had this much left

Team just played better once Tebow got in there, even Ayers was better

Looking forward to seeing Tim the rest of the year, and I am saying this cautiously because I am still scared Fox is stubborn/stupid enough to consider Orton again

yeah Im liking Franklin a lot as well

Didnt really see what people were talking about with the "he cant play tackle needs to move to guard" talk
granted its still early, but so far more good than bad with him IMO

I hope Dawk is ok, but it was good to see QC out there playing decent.

Especially in the 2nd half.

Franklin played his best game BY FAR. He was an absolute rock today.

The turning point in the game?

-Ayers big play
-Tebow hits...
-Moreno for the TD

The Josh McDaniels connection!

Ayers is starting to show that if you use him in the proper position he can be an impact player. I was very impressed by him today. The defense played great in the second half! I feel a little ridiculous for saying this, but Tebow's energy helped the defense out.

The D Stepped up because they knew they finally had a chance at winning, they had the fire in their bellies brought on by Tebow. It's been said everywhere he's played, he brings the fire, he's a natural winner, he motivates those around him and it was proven today. Orton was a futile effort and the D knew that too!

You can't miss the improvement in the OL. Then why weren't we more successful on offense given the OL play. I will let you answer that. Talking to my wife during the game and she was commenting on the way Rivers was throwing the ball away when Denver brought pressure. I told her that is what gets Orton in trouble trying to something that he can't do under duress.

Improve the leader, improve the team. Tebow get's the D fired up and they play better. I saw the same thing last year.

Credit to the OL coaching, we've gotten better each week. I'd love to see a full offseason of work for our young linemen.

I'd give Moreno a little credit on his TD. Absolute punishing finish to the end of his run.

Moreno should be getting 10-15 touches again... screen and swing passes, and some carries to keep WM from getting too gassed. Hopefully something like that could keep both backs healthy.
