Default Kyle Orton is Ashamed/Disgusted

http://www.denverbroncos.com/index.php

Watch this post game interview.

You can tell how ashamed and disgusted he is at himself/the entire team for how they played today.

... and rightfully so.

I didn't see any of the excuses or we need to work harder yada yada BS that's been used all season.

Seems like reality has set in.

I've not watched the McDaniels one yet and frankly I don't feel like it. I've had enough today and for a while.

It's fine. This is painful. He's having a hard time with it.

That said, I have a very hard time blaming this game on him. We made all sorts of mistakes today. He wasn't fantastic, but it's not his fault we can't get enough push up front to run for 3 ****ing yards to put a game away.

They played hard today. They didn't quit. We still have hope... and games like last week and this week help teams figure out what they need to do to be champs.

It's not all on Orton. If McDaniels let him throw some vertical passes, it might loosen up the defense and open up the short screens and pick passes that our head coach is in love with.

He sucks but he played about as good as he can for his skill set. I don't blame him he gets the most out of his limited skills and is a stand up guy.

Same could be said for Rudy at Notre Dame. That's great and all, but I still don't want him as QB for my football team. This is pro sports, not a charity for untalented nice guys.

It was smarter than just about any of his other choices. Cutler would have lobbed it up for an INT. He went down, and kept our lead. The announcers even commented that it was probably the lesser of all evils in that situation.

A better question is, why wasn't he protected? Why didn't he have anyone to throw the ball to?

Broncos wish they had Cutler instead of Orton, Cutler actually scored tds for the Broncos. 23 ppg looks pretty damn good right about now. 23 ppg beats the raiders today. I bet the defense would love to have last years offense instead of this pile of garbage

This is what I don't friggin understand. Good Lord, he was having success when he actually threw the ball downfield, but McDaniels seemed to handcuff him most of the day.

Here's a hint- poops doesn't know anything. He's just looking to conveniently place blame anywhere other than where it actually lies- with Orton and McDaniels.

This game isn't on Orton, however a QB that can buy some time with his feet is a must in today's game. Look at guys like Drew Brees and Tony Romo. The play is never over b/c they can buy time. Hell, Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady look like Mike Vick compared to Kyle Orton. He is the biggest statue I've seen since Drew Bledsoe.

B/c McD wasn't smart enough to give Polumbus help with a TE? Again, with a QB that has some faith in his legs maybe that play is extended and turned into a yard or two gain instead of an eight yard sack

how does Cutler and his 24 INT help us win this or any other game? He is a loser in the NFL, college, and nothing will change anytime soon bc the guy is a cancer that is a liablilty to his team.

Oh please. It was 20 ppg in 07 and then 23 in 08 and both seasons feature a lot of weak defenses on the schedule. They put up average stats at best against below average competition. This team is around 20 against significantly stronger defenses. Top 10 defenses pretty much every other ****ing week.

You want to talk about a drop in production? Go look at our run TD's scored this year to the last few years.

It's a massive drop. We can't ****ing run the ball in the red zone and short yardage. Are you going to sit there and tell me teams aren't respecting the deep ball in the red zone and that's why they are stacking the line to stop the run?

FWIW, a lot of questions for McDaniels were about playcalling.

I know I can't fly so I don't jump off buildings. There is this trick play teams do in the RZ or on third in short its called the forward pass.

Actually, Orton should be taking the blame for the past 8 quarters of futility. The defense played great against the Colts despite having little help from the offense, and he pissed that opportunity away.

Neckbeard wouldn't be starting unless the alternative was Chris Simms. Even he manages to make Fail Orton look good.

Keep crying, BPC. Cutler isn't coming back.

Go watch Chicago if you want to see INTs that badly.

He's a Bears fan, dude.

Actually, a Cutler fan. If Cutler winds up in the UFL, BPC will follow him.
