If the season goes the way I expect and Tebow doesn't play once Orton takes us several games under .500, I'll believe you clay.
But they're basically gonna have to keep Tebow out of ALL the games if they don't want fan fallout - and they'll get fan fallout if Tebow doesn't play any games and then gets traded anyway.
It's a no-win scenario. If small sample-size (ie, Tebow having a good game or two out of 4) is the issue with fans thinking he can play, then give him a bigger sample size so that more of them understand he can't.
If he DOES succeed in the bigger sample size, then maybe he can actually succeed across multiple years and we don't need to draft a 1st round QB.
If he fails, we draft high. If he succeeds, we don't need that high draftpick for Luck anyway.
I guess if the Broncos were 100% sure that Tebow was not the man then I would expect them to play him a lot or play him not at all, funny as that sounds. Playing Orton some, and then later in the year inserting Tebow just enough to get hopes up but not enough for him to crash and burn seems stupid.
So if they don't play Tebow at all this year, then you were right. But if Tebow is the starting QB in 2 months...
I really won't understand what we're doing, other than more half-measures of trying not to commit fully to any style of rebuild.
If Orton gets benched before that, then they really want to see what Tebow can do and only played Orton as a favor to the vets, to gie them hope that the team might be competitive and that they were not in full rebuilding mode.
If they mess around and don't give Tebow a shot if things continue on this path, then I'm really going to wonder if EFX is right for the Broncos (and truthfully more on E and X than on Fox, he will do as he is told).

How many seasons do we have to hear or read this line "it's not ALL Orton's fault". It's some of his fault and the fact we have had to watch his pathetic ass for 3 seasons now pisses me off.
I don't know how many times today I've heard "he brought us to within a FG and if the defense could have made a stop". Are we forgetting the fact that he just flat out dropled the ball?
Quit excusing one shitty (and it's undeniable folks, Orton is shitty) aspect of the team just because there are other shitty aspects as well.
I'm so sick of watching a loser lead this team and then essentially being told "don't worry about the leader being a loser because they're all losers, he fits in perfect".

it really does not matter WHO is at QB...
if we suck at the middle of both lines.
The draft needs to be used to upgrade the lines.. the trenches..
If Tebow blows after geting a decent shot...
and the team is upgraded in the 2012 draft...
THEN.. when we draft a young stud in 2013...
we will actually have a team.
If this team uses the #1 pick on a QB in 2012..
I see that as a waste.
If Tim gets cut without a shot... and goes on to greatness elsewhere..
I see that as a waste.
Every game Orton plays in...
is an unmitigated waste.

Breakfast, shmreakfast. Look at the score, for Christ's sake. It's only the second period and I'm up 12 to 2. Breakfasts come and go, Rene, but Hartford, "the Whale," they only beat Vancouver once, maybe twice in a lifetime.
