Of course we do. It's not even debatable. Look at the stats. 200 yards passing in the first half, and none in the second.

Gosh, I wonder.

Kyle Orton is a much better quarterback than a whole lot of people around here give him credit for. We definitely win with Orton in all the way through.

Umm. The offense was stalled before Simms even came in. The second half collapse is now old hat after the last few weeks.

You say I give orton too little credit, I say you give him too much credit. Is he a better QB than Simms? Yes. Do we win this game Orton,more than likely.

What are you talking about? They scored 17 pts in the first half and had their best drive of the day right before the half.

Insanity.

The QB position in Denver is a black hole. We're going to come out of this season with the exact same questions we had coming into it.

Who's the long term QB?

Orton's a free agent. Simms sucks. Brandstater is a 7th round pick.

Denver scouts better start hitting up the college trail and checking out some young signal callers.

We'd have won with me as the starter second half.

Orton didn't even play in the 2nd half of the game. So how could the offense be stalled before Simms came in?

You've got to be kidding me... Orton was awesome the entire first half. He missed one throw - to Royal. Yes, he should have hit that. Otherwise, he was fantastic. I can't believe how people see what they want to when watching Orton. It's like you guys have blinders on.

I'd rather see the Wild Horses every snap (including any 2nd or 3rd & longs) than see Simms ever again under center.

At the same time it's hard to make excuses when the Skins were missing multiple starters, particularly on offense.

They obviously didn't score enough in the lockerroom during halftime. Orton must've been hogging all the local skanks.

He tried; it didn't take. Hence, the lump of crap that is Chris Simms.

Betts is actually a better back than Portis at this time in his career. Portis has nothing left in his tank. I would have liked to see Portis healthy, would have helped the D.

That's possible. But they were also missing Cooley and 2 or 3 O-linemen.
