PaulKuharsky: Bud's plane in Taylor Swift's hangar. Makes sense as Swift, dating Tebow, would like Manning not to take Tebow's job w/ #Broncos. #Titans [via Twitter]

fix is in

I wasnt an orton guy but we rode a ton of luck and breaks going our way. We won despite tebow. It's quite obvious especially with his quality play last few weeks of regular season. Orton wasn't the guy and neither is tebow.

It's not uncommon for a new QB to come in, and to see an improvement in team play. Not quite as common as with coaching changes, but it does happen.

I tried to put my cockpit in Taylor's hangar and all I got was a restraining order and crabs. FML.

Listen Orton. You're a Cowboy now. Go over to their board and let their fans hear about how Romo sucks and how you're going to shank the skanks in Big D.

BTW, bring double whiskey because JJ don't mess around. He'll wing man ya.

I wouldn't say that we won despite Tebow. He had a role in it, certainly. A big role. But fans that can't admit the amount of breaks that it took for it to happen, I think are being unrealistic. As a whole, the defense got better as well. Injuries to Dumervil, Bailey, DJ Williams, etc early in the season.

That is just stupid. For every "lucky" thing that happened in favor of this team, I can count two missed FGs or horribly blown calls that went against them. This team was great at situational awareness and took advantage of opportunities.

Luck is a combination of skill and preparation...

Injuries to guys pike Miller and Dawkins didn't hurt though, right? They were just giving up 40+ because...?

The defense improved because the offense stopped turning it over after Tebow went in. They started turning it over late and the defense looked bad again. The defense was never good against top offenses.

Yeah... Orton wasn't responsible for the fumble against the raiders and the other fumble driving down against the Titans. Yeah... Dumervil, Bailey, DJ Williams being out must have made his hand sweat...

It obviously did hurt. If you were paying attention, the team's defense went in the toilet after Miller's injury.

Actually if you read again... those are 2 teams. Against the Raiders he pulled a Cutler neglecting what would have been a wide open Royal for a tocuhdown for a win. Against the Titans on the last drive we were moving the ball, he gets pressure up the middle and the ball bounces off his had trying to scramble. So yeah... those are 2 loses on him. If he was clutch like another QB... then.. who knows... the story could be different.

Lol. A healthy defense doesn't fold in that game either.

Never mind the fact that good teams get lucky. But I guess I imagined that pinball pass Elway threw to McCaffery to beat the Vikes or the Jeremiah Castille strip of Byner in the AFCC or the double blocked kicks against SD or the tip pass to Marshall against Cinci, or the Hochuli call etc, etc, no the Broncos never had any luck before now, that all started when Tebow came in.
