Why even kick the ball off its always a touch back and another flipping commerical. Just give them the ball at the 20, coming back for a kick out of bounds and another commercial drives me nuts lol

Actually, if Decker and Thomas continue to be unreliable targets that can't catch hold onto important balls like they were throughout last season it will be a huge problem for this offense and for the franchise.

It would have meant that the team mortgaged its future for nothing, lied to Manning about the talent they would surround him with and it will negatively impact our ability to draw marquee free agents to the team in the future.

I've leaned this way the entire time, the offense had giant holes last year in literally every area imaginable and it still has those exact same holes except at quarterback (and even that may not be as solid as the dreamers here have thought).

The line sucks, the backs were nothing special and will only regress without the threat of Tebow running, and now it looks like Decker and Thomas still are who we thought they were.

Doesn't matter to me mind you. This is the club that wins the SB this year.
If Tebow went 16-23 with two drops (one obvious touchdown), i think we'd all be encouraged. Tough ****ing crowd. He threw ONE bad pass. And yes, it was bad. but that was it.

If he went 12 forb 23b web would have been ecstatic. We expect Peyton to not be rusty and in form from 5 years ago. Tebow is young and could improve. I just am now thinking it won't happen at leastin the near future.

I've always defended Knowshon but I don't see any reason to keep him on our team this year unless Hillman's injury is worse than reported.

Tebow had drops for days, including many obvious touchdowns from Decker and Thomas and he was railroaded for his completion percentage constantly.

Completion percentage is quite possibly the most overblown and meaningless statistic imaginable. Manning has a -3 turnover differential and throwing three interceptions is and always will be unacceptable.

Should have drafted Wilson? He looks solid.

Demaryius Thomas, I believe, lead all receivers in yards (or something) over his last 8 games? I could be making that up, but there's some stat thats like that. They also barely threw and when they did, the ball was all over the place. Im not concerned about it. Not even a little.

Because he's getting swarmed behind the line of scrimmage tonight?

No, just because he isn't needed. He's too fragile and rarely shows anything worthy of his draft position.

There are younger and cheaper options on the roster that are just as good.
