Damn, if only we had played the HOF game and the HOF had been played we could name half the gameday roster as captains at a rate of 5.5 captains per preseason game.

Sorry I'm not one for Booing but Orton is in it for himself. Don't care what you all think I want my Broncos players playing because they are proud to be broncos and understand that the fans are important because that is why they are playing the game and making the millions that they are. I would and will support booing of Orton. Screw him !!

...have I mentioned I actually really like this approach?

It's putting a whole lot of extra guys in leadership roles. Some might get comfortable with it and have it stick.

Will it make an impact? Probably not, but it's smart and can't do anything but good things.

They've still got to leak a lot more "Tebow is no where near ready!!!111" articles if they want to avoid that reaction on MNF

Walton and Kuper must have had terrible weeks to be demoted. Busts.

Also, where the hell is Paxton? Must be a mistake.

I'm assuming that this means the coaching staff is officially acknowledging that Dawkins has lost a step and that Colquitt needs some competition.

I agree. Bob Paxton is the Broncos' version of Fezziwig.

Look at it this way. You have one year left. You're almost 30. You're on a team that has shown no desire to sign you long term.

Are you going to say, "**** yeah I'll be a backup!"? Accepting a demotion on a contract year in his prime years is tantamount to career suicide monetarily speaking.

I hate this situation as much as anyone else. But put yourselves in his shoes. The NFL is a ****ing business. He's been shown no loyalty in terms of a long term future here. Don't expect the same in return.

FYI, the players don't pick the captains... Fox does. He is probably afraid they will vote for DJ again.
