Default The Roast of Montrose Thread: Let me have it

I can take it, this has been the worst year of my life so you might as well pile it on:

1) Yes, I predicted the Broncos would win at least 10 games this season.
2) I said Orton looked like Brady during the first practice of camp (although, as I've said numerous times, I was referring to mannerisms and not talent - give it to me anyway).
3) I've been ripping Simms every chance I can get.
4) I love nearly every move McDaniels has made and still do.
5) I actually still think we're moving in the right direction.

There you have Maners, focus all of your negative karma towards me. Blast me, rip me, find previous posts that I've been wrong on (god knows there's a lot of them), make fun of me for still being utterly depressed over my breakup, call me gay for swearing off women (no joke, I'm done), make fun of me for being a virgin, I don't care - just let me have it because you'll feel better when your done.

How can you swear off women before you've ever REALLY tried one?

PS. Did you see Orton's cannon barely squeaking the ball in on those 10 yard outs? Wow, that thing must've been humming at like 8mph

Aside from Orton's crappy game, there's not a whole lot to b**** and moan about. But, I'm sure some posters will enjoy cooking you up a big ole plate of crow...

Yeah, I'm not about to panic over one preseason game. It's certainly not a good sign, but it's not the end of the world either.

The thing to me about Orton is just that I don't see the talent. At least a guy like Cassell has the arm to launch the ball down field. I don't see that with Orton. Even Plummer had some heat on his passes in the 20yd range. Orton showed tonight that he has a noodle arm at best.

The positive about toinight...it's only an exhibition game. Most likely, McDaniels wanted to see Orton run very specific plays. He's not going to open up the offense in the first preseason game.

The game to watch...will be the one against Chicago. He'll be at home, playing against a very good defense, with tons of pressure on....and McDaniels will open up the offense at that point...in preparation for the regular season.

Now, if Orton looks like he did last night...against the Bears...well then, we should all get ready for 4-5 win season. But even I (huge Cutler/Shanahan fan) think we have to allow the preseason to unfold before we throw in the towel.

I guess you missed the entire second half where Simms made some plays. But, that's ok. You go right on focusing on the negative.

Well, I didn't say starting but rather our top CB (unofficially as we don't really have a #1 and #2 CB). After seeing Champ last night, I'm still not so sure I wouldn't be more comfortable with Smith on Ochocinco than Champ - but point taken.

Maybe. I'm not in agreement with every move, just most of them. I don't think Cutler will ever be a franchise QB and we got the most value for him we could - so I've got no problem with that. Orton may suck worse than Cutler but at least we moved on from Jeff George Jr. I liked our draft for the most part although I could've done without drafting Bruton and dealing both 3's for Quinn, even though I like him as a prospect. I'm cool with the Smith trade as I think the dude is absolute stud and could care less about having a top 10 pick next year. I like the defensive staff he assembled and the players he got in free agency although I was hoping for James Sanders instead of Renaldo Hill.

I wasn't a fan of his offensive staff other than keeping Dennison and Turner. I hate that he didn't bring in another kicker to compete with Prater and would've liked to move Scheffler is possible. In a perfect world I would've loved to add talent to the front-7 but aside from overpaying for Canty or Olshansky or moving up for that bust-in-waiting Raji, I don't see who we could've gotten in the middle rounds better than Baker anyway.

Are there any major moves he made that I'm missing? Oh well, this is a Montrose-roast thread. McDaniels sucks, bring back Cutler, Shanny, Slowick and 8-8 seasons...

Good point. I suppose we could say I've sworn off hope of ever being with one.

More like 6.5mph. I'm actually worried about Knowshon's injury way more than Orton sucking last night. Once Marshall's back and McDaniels reels K.O. in, I doubt he'll have the opportunity to throw 3 picks. Kern's going to get a lot of work this season and that's fine by me.

Worrying about Knowshon is directly proportional to worrying about how god-awful Kyle Orton is and will continue to be. It creates an even BIGGER need for the break-away, game-breaking back.

There you have Maners, focus all of your negative karma towards me.

lol I will roast you only for saying he looked like Brady

but I don't think you should be ripped for this because we did make the right moves so far and we are moving in the right direction, and if we do have a bad season I hope Bowlen is smart enough to keep McDaniels because he really is a great coach.

Standing behind Orton after those INTs and not having a knee jerk reaction saying Simms will start the next game because I can think of a lot of rookie HCs who made that mistake.

I am with you on supporting what we are doing. I see a nice change right now.

Why? I actually thought the broncos looked aggressive and very prepared. Orton **** the bed...coaches coach, players play. He had given Orton a chance to succeed.
