Denver Broncos: Denver Is Losing with Kyle Orton, Let Tim Tebow Play
There is a certain Tim Tebow fan who writes his heart out for the kid to get some playing time. Most Denver Broncos fans just write him off as crazy. Or annoying.
However I think I am beginning to side with this person and I'll give you some great points to show why.
Now we all know the gist of the Denver Broncos Quarterback situation. This is not something new to Denver since John Elway retired. However the job has been more of an inconsistent hassle to fans and the organization.
Denver once a proud and and feared team, much like the Ravens they lost to last Sunday are now. Once was lead by not just a Quarterback. But the best Quarterback to strap on cleats come game day.
The fan base became use to the play of the great Elway as he would work down defenses and out run defensive backs, safety's, throwing footballs through dimensional portals using his nuclear arm to deter defensive organizations against the hope of taking down the Orange and Blue population within Colorado.
I remember one time Elway shot down a missile using his Arm and and a miniature Nerf football. Ok.Not really. But he was that type of hero he was to us. The type that led to folk lore and tales of men who defied anything logical.
Or not. Maybe it was just football. But in Denver it was John Elway. Nothing else.
We got to witness greatness. Much like COLTS fans are now.
We have the potential to have that again.
We just have to want it.

In short Brian Griese never had a chance.
He had to follow the Great John Elway. Brian Griese is actually a great guy who still supports his charity's he established in Denver while he was a Bronco. He also still actively reaches out to new members of the Broncos to help them assimilate into the Organization.
Did I mention he loves Colorado.
The only thing in the early days that really got to Griese was the transition to the NFL. He looked to be a little slower on picking up the speed of the game. He would eventually but never got good footing to really catch on with a team.
He did enjoy a small stint with Tampa Bay.

Jake was a jerk. Not because he is to those that know him. But because he was to us the fans. He never could take criticism very well.
He was a winner. However he could not perform in the important times. He was never able to get over the hump but was knocking several years.
However in a championship game or playoff game. This guy just did not step up to the plate. He took a shot and missed the goal. All he could do was brick it when we needed a hole in one.
That's why he now plays Pro Hand Ball.
He could never return Denver to the glory days. Too bad he was fighting a rookie with a rocket. Also does'nt help to insult the fan base. I would guess. Your coach either.
Never liked this guy.

Jay Cutler was drafted with the eleventh pick of the first round in the 2006 NFL draft. He had not won a championship since high school. In fact his last winning season was high school.
However l have always used the Happy Gilmore analogy.
The coaches watch Happy Gilmore try out for a hockey team. He doesn't have the greatest poise during his audition, in fact was very much the worse one there.
But by the end of that audition Happy sends one to the glass that causes the coaches to say " What a shot." He may fail at almost every other area. But he can shoot the puck.
Jay may not have the best Quarterback I.Q, but man he has an Arm.
What does that get you in the NFL?
In 16 games. Do the math.
Cutler has one thing going for him. He is not a stupid person by any means and can figure out how to correct his problems.
Problem with that though. He acts like a child and pouts all the time.
In fact that is the very reason he is no longer a Denver Bronco.
He could have taken Denver all the way. Maybe not. I guess Chicago will find out.
Good luck Cut.

Of all the stand up guys there was at Quarterback for the Denver Broncos, Kyle Orton may stand taller than all.
He is a very simple person who doesn't live the life he could. He is humble. His life is humble. He drives a Prius.
He would be a mixture of Griese and Plummer to me.
He has the intangibles of Plummer when it comes to winning. He scrambles like Griese and has for years as a starter and that inability to improvise on the break down of a play is his one true down fall.
He is currently the leader in passing yards in the NFL. His receiver corp I said before the start of the season is the most under rated in the NFL. Now they are showing it.
I said before McDaniels is allowing Orton to inflate his stock so come the 2011 season he can use him as trade bait for some picks. That's why he extended him through 2011.
People here disagree with me. We will see.
But his lack of ability to improvise will clear the way for the person who I think can in fact return Denver to the Glory days.
Omar may be crazy. But he is right on this one...........

The end of the Orton era will come sooner than later. Tim Tebow has watched from the side line in disgust as the Broncos have lost three games this year already. Honestly I'm glad he feels that way. He hates losing.
Not only that but his ability to improvise gives him an edge over Kyle Orton or Brady Quinn.
If you are as I am. You want the best for the Denver Broncos. Just because Tim Tebow has a following so huge he could start his own league is no reason to hate the guy.
Truth be told Denver should just go ahead and give him the experience. Let the kid play. Joe Flacco and Matt Ryan have proved Rookie Quarterbacks can come in and play.
The point is we as fans need a Quarter back who can run and pass and has an arm. A winner.
We have a guy who embodies all those things.
He is on the bench.
We need to get him involved.
Let the kid pay.
Even with Ortons GREAT numbers we are losing.
We owe it to Brian Dawkins, and to Champ Bailey. They need someone who will win now.
Give Tim a chance. He will Win. He always has.
