    Well, I didn’t bring up Tebow. I mentioned Orton. He was great in practices with the Bears Broncos and Bills. Tebow has nothing to do with that. I used Orton as an example of a player who excelled in practice, but sucked under the lights with another team across from him.



    Tebow was bad in practice and in real games.
    I stand corrected, you brought up Orton... which took us down a rabbit hole.

    They were tough and physical. I am thinking that ship is about to set sail.

    Game 2 should be the dress rehearsal and game 3 should be for the last few trying to win a spot. Eliminating game 4. Then use the extra week for 2 byes through the year.

    Orton was great in practice on ALL teams. Not just with Tebow. That’s my point. Sometimes players practice really well until another team with pads is across from them. If Kelly **** the bed last game and next game, you better believe they bring in a FA vet, regardless if he looked awesome in all the practices. That’s a decision based on preseason, not practice.

    4 games is too much. 2-3 is needed. We’re going in circles here.

    Nah. It’ll be a run.

    Booker needs more reps before week 1. He can’t even find the running lanes.

    No, actually it wouldn't have. You're totally conflating issues with that one.

    While I'm no Tebow fan at all, one point that I've made about him was that he was never going to out perform Orton in practice because teams don't hit the QBs in practice. So you really can't practice what Tebow does. Tebow will never shine in practice. He doesn't even possess the basic quarterback skills that Orton at minimum has. But Tebow was going to have a huge impact on games, and he did. A Tebow led team will win more games than an Orton led team, even though Orton is a much better passer.

    But the Tebow/Orton point really has nothing to do with this discussion.

    And my point of preseason games wouldn't result in Lynch staying at No. 2. I've addressed that already a few times. If there were no preseason games, Kelly still would have moved in front of Lynch. Like I said, I believe that they kept Lynch at No. 2 just to try to create trade value in him.

    Your formula would’ve have him starting.


    Your formula also has coaching staffs wasting reps(lynch with 2s when they knew Kelly was their guy). Which they don’t do on purpose.

This apparently includes players who they already have their minds made up about and see no value in putting them out there. And we're not talking about Von Miller. So it's possible someone doesn't play tomorrow, but also doesn't start or is even cut or moved.

    Remember Kyle Johnson?
    this one here would defend anything the broncos Horseface or Elway do.

    This is such a non story

    No big suprise that Rosen hasn't thrown a football either.
