Default Decker on QB change

Decker appeared on the Doug Gottlieb show.

My own reading of the interview is that Decker is a little bit frustrated with the change at QB. He wasn't really willing to credit Tebow with the stadium's electricity. His point seemed to be that a successful passing offence is based on a relationship with the QB and consistency, which he felt was getting better w Orton. Decker doesn't seem to know what his rapport will be like with Tebow, implying they haven't gotten many reps. Good thing there's two weeks of practice.

Edit: Just to clarify, I think the Decker-hate that has already gestated in this thread is off-base; Decker came off as sincere and reasonable to me.

Edit: here's the link to ESPN's radio player: http://espn.go.com/espnradio/play?id=7085698 Listen for yourselves.

They don't get two weeks of practice. Players get this week off and get back to work next Monday.

Earth to Decker: You're going to be here at least a few more years. Orton has 11 more games in Denver. If you want consistency, try building it with the guy who may be around for the long haul.

Decker needs to shut his pie hole and play football. Orton was taking this team no where!

Young player being young. Catch the ball when Tebow throws it to you and you will see the ball more often. Thats how it works.

Go ahead and play catch with Orton on the sidelines if thats what you want. Why do wr's feel the need to be prima donna's. Do you hear the OL whining, the RB's whining, Heck even Moreno felt the juice when he barreled his way to the endzone, and wasnt going to be denied. Do your job and stfu.

I'm pretty sure Tebow could beat up Decker.

To be clear, that is not why I started the thread. I felt it gave some insight into the locker room dynamics, and Decker came off as perfectly reasonable to me. And I think the Decker-hate in the thread is offbase.

Is it really a whole week the get off? I thought it was Thursday through Monday. Even a Monday practice is an extra day isn't it?

I agree. It was more of a comment on how quickly Broncos fans will turn on players these days (sometimes warranted).

Decker should have probably kept that information to himself though.

electricity in the stadium, which just so happened to coincide with tebow going in to play, was not due to tebow? alright then.

Get ready to do a lot of blocking Decker so Tebow can have some long runs. Orton just flat out sucks. How many 3 and outs is the coach supposed to watch before he tries a switch? I thought Orton would play at least as well as he did first 2 yrs but he has regressed and gotten worst. He probably made a big big mistake not taking whatever 3-4 yr deal he could get of Miami. He would be still be out of a job next yr, but at least he would have gotten some extra yrs on the deal and more money.

I'm not sure teams will even look at Orton as a number 2 qb. He doesn't seem to want to do it and teams like the number 2 to have some upside. If anything he gets a one yr deal to play somewhere and doesn't win the job. Spends time as a bkup, doesn't like it, and goes the way of the Plummer.

Guys, cut Decker and everyone else a break. I think the statements that he made are fine and legit. Just like every other player, he's worried about how it affects him. He was set up to the blloyd of this season.

It depend on the coach, but it sound like they practice today and tomorrow and show up next week. Quinn already bolted, so I expect today was for treatment and tomorrow is optional.

it is tebownut b**** party. All Decker stated that came out of the locker room and the made some plays based on McGahee making some plays and the team get energized. That 28 yard run by McGahee was the key play in the 2nd half that got the team rolling.
