Default Orton hints after the game that DT was running wrong routes

from what I can gather, Orton's INT was on Demaryius Thomas. The commentators in the game said that it looked like someone ran a wrong route because two receivers were in the same spot.

Also, Orton hinted at after the game:

"They play tough coverage that is hard to throw the ball against down there and we just did not execute.
"Everything has to happen so fast. Everybody has to be on the same page and just a few plays we weren't."

So Demaryius Thomas cost us in that game. Maybe Mcdaniels extended his route tree too quickly.

Not surprising for a young player to make mistakes. Kudos to Orton for using the word "we" as opposed to calling others out.

Are we talking about the interception? It's hard to tell who folded on that one. Looked like both guys blew it.

I'm pretty sure there was a mix up on the route there.

I think the Lloyd play on 4th & 3 is another.

Orton threw the ball by the marker and Lloyd was in the endzone. I would think the play was a quick strike for the 1st down, and get four shots to get 7.

It's how it appeared at least to me anyway.

I think it was Thomas' DB who jumped the route.

It was Thomas's DB who got it. Thomas was supposed to go deep and bring his DB with him, well out of the area of the play. And then that ball would've gone right to Royal, who had his man beat.

Thomas might have messed up and kept his defender in wrong area, but that was bad throw by Orton too. There was a lot of mistakes on that play.

Who cares? Orton has got to know when not to throw the ball. If it's all about timing then there's gonna be a lot more INTs with D.Thomas running the wrong routes. I still think Orton is going to be limited if we can't run the friggen ball effectively.

Orton is much better than last year but still... run the motherfuggen ball once in a while and keep the motherfuggen defenses at least thinking about the run game. Throw the ball enough times and there's gonna be turnovers, guaranteed.

That was also a truly terrible pass by Orton. Even if Lloyd had been at the marker, the ball would have hit the turf 6 feet in front of him.

I felt the exact same way on that play. That's the type of play where both the QB and the WR have to make the read at the line, and they have to see the same thing and execute. Orton saw the out, Lloyd saw the fade.

Not sure if they're not communicating or what, but it looked (and felt) awful.

They were both probably option routes that the receiver and the QB read differently.

Lloyd needed to check to the hot route like Orton did.

We're a team that can't afford to make mistakes like this against good teams.

Not sure how many routes he ran wrong. He looked a bit out of place on the INT though. At least he hustled to make the tackle.

You throw the ball 57 times, you're probably going to have a missed route or two, or a bad throw, and give up an INT.

I'm more concerned about the offense in the red zone.

Guys, it's impossible to gauge what is a bad pass, and what isn't in game-time. Even an apparently horrible throw, like the one to Lloyd, could have been affected by a number of things - timing routes that were jammed at the line, misread option routes, the QB/receiver not knowing the play.

I'm actually proud of the way the Broncos showed up against the Colts, but it really was rookie mistakes.... made by rookies that cost us. Cox and DT had trouble, but it's very encouraging to watch both of them play.

Well as long as we can still blame Orton, I'm in.

The ball hit at the 2 yd line if he was throwing to the marker he was short

I will say this for Thomas... his closing speed on making that tackle was flat-out impressive.
