I only needed a couple posts to debunk you as a broncos fan. Took a few more posts to debunk OABB as a fully functional adult.

Counting my posts is very flattering.

Ill take it. Although most my posts have been the last 5 or so pages that had minimal to do with tebow.

That's how you build a team through the draft and still win while you are doing it. Or is your preference to just have a bunch of first and second year guys out there... because that's definitely a recipe for success, especially if we still had a ****ty "developmental" QB who can't complete a pass.

The big questions is, what are you really upset about? Is it that we have the best QB in the game but didn't draft him, or is it really just a load of butthurt about Tebow?

Both.

When the Broncos began the season 6-0 behind Orton, and that ran his career record as a starter to 27-13, I thought that I had underestimated him. That he might actually be good. He tricked me.

Word from the light rail is that Tim refused to catch and preferred pitching. That is why your love went sour. Shameful.

Yeah, we've all been wrong and will continue to be wrong on some things, right on others....

I have admitted a few times that I was wrong about McDaniels developing into a decent head coach (he was in over his head), and Orton being a pretty good QB to run the show until another franchise guy could be found (he is the definition of a solid journeyman QB).

But one huge difference is the vast majority of those who supported Orton (myself included) over Tebow admitted he played himself out of the starter's gig, and didn't blast the franchise or blame his team mates for his failings when he was benched, and then subsequently waived. There was no venom spewed, or hatred for the FO or John Elway for making what was a business/ performance based decision to part ways with Kyle Orton.

Those who supported Tebow however, trashed the franchise, Elway, Fox, his team mates, spewed venom at anyone who had reservations or criticisms about him, and when Manning was available and signed went off the deep end by calling the team classless, waxing poetic about the tears in the kid's eyes as there was no more Be-Bow, and kept spewing their venom towards those of us who were ecstatic that Manning signed with us.

No comparison what so ever.......

Really? You're gonna actually say that after watching Tebow throw the ball and watching Brock throw the ball.....you seriously wouldn't trade one for the other?

Yeah, please link to all the posts where anyone who supported Orton whined like a little b**** when he was benched and released.

Show all the posts where they called the franchise classless, or started rooting for the Chiefs, or Cowboys.

Show all the posts where they waxed poetic about how their kid cried at no more "Be-Bow"

You and your clown cronies went beserk and off the deep end when the Broncos signed Manning and punted your boy to the Jets.

I'm a draft guy. I prefer my team home grown as much as possible. 2 high round running backs? Brock? That's three spots there to shore it up as well.

McGahee was getting old, and Moreno has been injured and a bit of a disappointment so why wouldn't you draft RB's to potentially replace them?

You liked a team to build thru the draft?

Clady drafted in 2008

Moreno, Ayers, and Bruton drafted in 2009

D.Thomas, Decker, Beadles, Walton drafted in 2010

Miller, Moore, Irving, Q. Carter, Franklin, J.Thomas, Green drafted in 2011

Wolfe, Hillman, Osweiler, Bolden, Blake, M.Jackson, Trevathan drafted in 2012

Williams, Ball, Webster, King, Q.Smith, Painter, Dysert drafted in 2013

That's 29 players who are currently on the roster, of which 23-26 will stick for this upcoming season.....and you're b****ing because we signed a Hall of Fame QB to lead them over a clown who couldn't hit water if he fell out of a boat?

I'm not saying you're stupid....but, wouldn't you have to be?


In bold....

I know it pisses others off...but, the truth is that some fans are better than others.

We all get pissed at when our team ****s the bed....but I don't get emotional about the team. I see no need to since I have no control over it. I don't own it, I don't coach it, I don't draft the players.

I don't agree with every decision the team makes but don't go off the deep end when they make a move I disagree with.

I don't agree with every play called, for instance I'd want the ball in Manning's hands hoping he could get it to Thomas, Decker or Stokes on 3rd and 7, instead of giving it to Hillman, but I know that Manning, Fox, and McCoy can't hear me screaming at the TV.

I have my wish list on draft day too, but don't whine like a little b**** when they don't draft the guys I wanted them to.

I like certain players, but don't feel a need to put up billboards when they're not starting or cry like a little girl when they get released, and I never put the player before the team...after all, players come and go...the Broncos are forever

It happens...I thought Griese was gonna be something special when he had 19 TD's vs. 4 INT's in 2000 as a 2nd year starter.....then he ****ed us all without kissing us.
