Default Hey Elway/Bowlen/Xanders: F Off! I am done

Yeah this is a rant but I have given myself over 16 hours to chill and still feel this way. I just dumped my tix for three games this season on stub hub. I just booked a fishing trip next Sunday.

You idiots want to treat this as a business? Fine - I am walking. I have followed the Broncos for 35 years. I can probably count the number of games during that stretch that I didn't watch on one hand. I have an entire wardrobe dedicated to Broncos gear. I buy every ticket I can afford. No longer. I'm done with supporting this team in any way economically until they field a product worth watching. And no, that doesn't mean it has to be Tebow. Hell, give Quinn a try. But doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is about a dumb as hiring the head coach from the only team worse than you were last year - oh wait.

And no, this isn't a I'm Leaving the Mane post. I am just done forking over money or eyeballs to this sorry disgrace of a management team.

Just so we're clear, you gave a new coach and executive one game, after having no off season, before you bailed? And you bailed over a 3 point loss? Enjoy fishing, you clearly have the patience for it.

I have a question for you MK.

You make mention that there was no "Off season". But all teams had no offseason... How do you explain Buffalo, Tom Brady and Cam Newton

If a 3 point loss is how you viewed that game, you missed something.

I left Fox out of it except questioning the intelligence of hiring him. Bowlen and Xanders - given them way too many seasons. Elway? He should know better.

The product is garbage, had been for years and given the course they are on is only going to stink worse. So ya, I am done contributing $ to it.

The point is that giving a new coaching staff a little more rope might be worthwhile. Did you miss that?

Why pick the HOF Coach/QB combo to make your point? If anyone was going to benefit from the lockout, it was those guys. Also, Buffalo played the Chiefs, and Cam Newton lost.

Oh, it was an ugly three point loss, for sure, but hardly worth giving up on the season for.

I feel your pain. I really do. It's a poor product that they are trying to force on us and tell us it's really not that bad. There is a financial and emotional investment that many fans including myself don't feel we're getting a return on.

May as well make it a clean break...beat it, pansy. Somebody give this guy a shot of man the f** up.


Sincerely,

John Elway

A freeking rookie QB with ZERO offseason out performed kyle freekin orton who is an experienced NFL qb in his 8th season and 3rd overall in denver.

Remember dude, you were the one that used NO OFFSESON as an excuse.


PS: If you did not notice Denver/Orton lost just like Can Newton did, but Cam Newton put up numbers in his first ever NFL game that kyle orton has never come close to.

I'm not making an excuse for anyone's poor play, I'm pointing out that a new coaching staff deserves a little patience. The fact that there was no offseason is relevant for teams that had significant changes. I'm really happy that Cam Newton threw for so many yards, but that doesn't really change my point. Orton sucked, and I want Tebow to start, but I'm still going to watch the rest of the season, and I'm still traveling out to see us play the Chargers in October.

I saw the same preseason game you did. I would give Quinn a try because at least that is doing something that can help this franchise out. I'll take that over John Elway feeding us consumers the same sh*tsandwich and calling it a burger while crowing about how he is going to reengage the fan base. Ummm John, psst, you're doing it wrong. Or worse - Bowlen and Joe "Wormtongue" Ellis are using you.
