Default How Fast?

Are people going to jump off the Tebow train after this loss? This team decided to stay in Denver for the holidays. Coaching was terrible...Run, run, run, Punt as usual in the 1st half.

Pretty fast. But it would have happened anyway, whenever the next bad game came along.

Playcalling was not the issue today whatsoever. Execution and special teams were the main issues.

The Broncos should be able to convert a 3rd and 1 by running the ball, but they failed to execute. Also, if you pay attention to most of the passing plays, there were many times that a receiver was wide open and Tebow just failed to recognize him, or he was under pressure due to our terrible pass protection. Not to mention the drops that hit receivers right in the hands.

I'm still on board with Tebow. He's playing like any other young QB in the league. When the offensive line gives him time to throw, he finds open receivers and is accurate. When he's under immediate pressure all game long, Tebow is ineffective at passing.

QB who has started only 13 games has a bad day after helping bring a team that was 1 and 4 back from the dead and into NFL relevance for the first time in 6 seasons.

Let's crucify him.

Pathetic.

I'm still riding with Tebow. He had a bad game, but didnt have much help. Offense, Defense, Special Teams, Officiating... it was a disaster all around.

I was never on the train but not off it either. The guy is definitely fun to watch, I'm excited that he is on our team, and I see improvement; but I think wait and see is a fair position to have.

Broncos lost today because special teams fell apart, defense fell apart and they didn't make big plays on offense. A trifecta of fail.

No reason to give up on Tebow until he has a great offense and can't win. His oline is horrid in short yardage, his WR are all avg, his TE or below avg, his RB's are avg. I think Tebow done pretty well with this garbage.

I'd never want Broncos to lose, playoffs is always good, but none of this bothers me too much. This team just not very good. The AFC west just really bad and we got lucky in a few other games. Still Tebow worth developing, Miller looks like a good number 1 pick, Doom came back healthy, so we did have a few positives this yr already.

Broncos need guys who make plays to score TDS and a bunch of help on defense. I hope Bowlen willing to spend some money this offseason.

It isn't like the offense was doing so great with Orton and they put it Tebow and they play so poorly. There might be a reason other than QB why the offense has struggled the last couple of years.

If you're going to jump off the Tebow train after that game.

Might as well jump of the team train, they were all awful.

Most people will give him a pass, it was just one bad game.

If we don't make the playoffs, different story.

i wanna know what the heck happened to our efense ?

i thought it was 2010 all over again watching that today, missed tackles, other team moving up an down the field almost at will, it wasn't the patriots this week so that's not an acceptable excuse.

Never bail on Denver but, its obvious this team is majorly flawed on talent. All is I hope FO focuses on games like this and adds upgrades. Not forget games like this and go we were 8-8 9-7 and not hardly do anything. This team has miles to go.

There would have been more pass attempts if the Broncos could sustain a drive in the first half. When you fail to pick up a 3rd and 1 twice in the half, that's on execution, not playcalling. Not only that, but when runs on first and second down generate 9 yds, you stick with it. I had no problem with the playcalling overall today, although I didn't like a few specific calls.

agree to disagree

i wanted to throw a table through the TV the entire second quarter. buffalo made adjustments after our first drive and shut down our run game. we neglected to counteract those adjustments with some of our own, and we repeatedly ran into a brick wall up the middle time after time again

mike mccoy has to be the most uninspiring OC in recent memory imo

Not a question of being on or off the "Tebow" train. Im a Broncos fan. This was a bad game, unfortunately, it happens.

Special teams was an embarrassment today. Kick coverage was horrible. Dawk went out, and the defense collapsed - who knows if those events were related, but it was like time traveled to the worst of the 2010 days. We fell behind, and I think we have seen that we dont play well from behind more than 10 points. Tebow had a bad day. Winced when I heard the remark that he was 4 for 13 (4 int's for 13 attempts).

Such is life. Thankfully this one is over, and its time to look forward to next week.

Go Broncos!
