Jerry jones has turned Dallas into a dumpster fire I'm not sure anyone wants to be there. Jerry Jones and his ego still think he will turn the boys back into a contender. Why does this remind me so much of how Al Davis and the Raiders spiraled out of control?

Owners should really just come in and sign checks and fire people. They make really ****ty GM's. The rumor is he had Johnny Manziels name on the paper and ready to turn in at the draft. His son stopped it.

Here are a few comments about the Orton signing from a Bills message board:


"EJ will have a fun time picking Orton's brain. He has a wealth of football knowledge"

"He could be our starter week 3"

"Orton will be the starter, Tuel as his back up and give useless EJ a clip board! I'm loving this!"


"I bet Orton will drill into EJ how talented he is and how much work he has put in. And help install that extra bit of confidence for greatness. "

"Orton could get us to the playoffs. Now if EJ sucks by week 3 Marrone better be ready to pull the trigger.
"

"Not to mention he is a student of the game and has EXCELLENT fundamentals and mechanics."

"In Orton We Trust!"

what really sucks for Bills fans is they don't have a 1st rounder next year because they traded it away for a WR in one of the deepest WR drafts in the history of the draft

He did override Parcells on Demarcus Ware and forced him to draft him. He also was the one who took Dez. He has some bad decisions but has made some good ones too.

Broncos Ronnie Hillman, Kayvon Webster hospitalized overnight in Dallas

http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci...r-hospitalized


The Broncos did not disclose the nature of the illness, although the team did confirm Hillman and Webster were taken to a Dallas-area hospital for treatment and evaluation.

Both are expected to rejoin the team this weekend and be on the field for the team's first regular-season practice Monday.

DT isn't.

Superbowl Record Most receptions, game, 13
Demaryius Thomas - Denver vs. Seattle, XLVIII


Dez would have melted down, cussed out Manning, and walked back to the locker room.

So true. Dude is talented, but someone who you can count on pointing fingers and embarrassing your team when it gets rough. We dealt with that **** with Brandon Marshall, I love we have DT instead.

Thats a good point. Lets not forget DT did that with a separated shoulder. But just maybe he doesnt let Manning tuck and calls him or the team out and the game changes. Guess Im still upset with Peyton for not having a rally. Its unreal that his brother has 2 titles and totally has stunk for a couple years. Yeah lucky(helmet catch and dropped int) but he is a dif qb when its on the line.

Dez and DT are essentially of equal talent, DT comes with no drama, no issues and is a great teammate.
And this is coming from someone who was less than thrilled with us passing on Dez.

No passing offense can succeed if the defense is allowed illegal contact all the way down the field.

Even on DT's TD reception in the 4th quarter they tried to tackle him while the ball is in the air. Why do you think we got Talib and Ward? To play the exact same way.

Doesnt matter when you miss the playoffs every year but 4.

Missed the playoffs in 5 or 6 years as starter, made it 4.

Glad they won those SB's but come on.

Wow, if a WR hungry, starved really, team cuts you, maybe you're not cut out for NFL football.

Dez has matured a lot since entering the league. He doesn't deserve his crazy/dramatic/headcase tag anymore.

Dez and DT are very similar in terms of skill. At this point in their careers, it's really a wash.
