Default For the first time Ever. Denver won a game because of how horrible their QB was

For the first time ever, Denver just won a game because of how horrible their quarterback was.

I really hope this game proves the lie to all of the Orangemaner's who think that system and stability trump talent. Orton's quarterback rating for this game was a even 100. Yet he was a disaster all night. Consistently led his receivers into opposing players, under-threw the ball, and led his receivers into the ground. The good news is that he was so God Aweful that the opposing DB's were camped on the route, allowing for the miracle pick. Orton was so bad, we won.

If this game is anything to go by - Denver needs a Offensive Coordinator bad.

The defense on the other hand was everything that was promised by Mike Nolan. The play calling - on everything except the last drive - was brilliant, and Alphonso Smith really stepped his game up big time. Champ was huge - no small thanks to (1/85)th for trolling him so much. DJ was all over the field - albeit without some of the explosiveness he showed.

In short, we have a team that just behaved exactly like they did in pre-season. I still think - and there was not one iota of statistical validation otherwise - that until we have a QB that can throw it down the field, we are in serious serious trouble.

It is kind of funny. It looked like the only reason the ball ended up in Stokely's hands was because Orton couldn't make that throw.

Glass half-empty today huh?

Here's a news flash: the ball ended up in Stokely's hands because the defender tipped it up, and he and 2 other bungles fell down- out of the play w/ Marshall.

1-0's have a way of being 4-11's awfully fast. We certainly did not play well enough to deserve today's win. And when you don't deserve to win against the Bengals, something is really really wrong.

Chiefsplanet is happier with their loss than some of us are with our win.

Some things really do need to be clearly explained around here. Stick figures may be the next attempt at understanding the obvious.

Did you see all the passes the reciever's missed? Not all Orton fault.

Yes, the kind of pass only made by a highly skilled QB.

If that ball falls incomplete then Orton's rating is 72. Funny what one lucky play can do. It gives the team a win and shines up the QB's stats really good.

They don't really have a reason to have expectations about certain things like their defense.

We on the other hand expect a phenomenal offense with the players on that side of the ball and a HC who "lead" the record breaking Pats offense.

Not the monstrosity we saw today that was carried by dropped balls and a full hearted effort by our defense.

That's true, but that's not why he sucked. ... they didn't drop many in preseason, and yet he managed just 1 TD in 7 quarters.

He just does NOT produce points.

If that's what you expect the 1st week, or 1st year for that matter, in a new system- new everything, then your expectations are beyond unrealistic, they are fantasy.

I told you all last night this place would be spammed with anti-Broncos threads like this if we won.

No amount of winning is going to appease these queers.

But, if you think it's bad now... wait until we lose. The server won't survive.
You'll see hundreds of celebratory threads from these widow schmucks.

Eh. I'm discouraged by a lot of what we saw. Honestly, I thought our O looked sharper in the pre-season throwing 3 picks in a half.

Defensively, I'll be happy if we can replicate a good performance vs Cleveland. Two teams with issues, but I'll have seen enough to patch opinion together and be happy.

doesn't Orton have some sort of major laceration on his finger? I wonder how much that effected him.
