Denver fans chant for Tim Tebow, but John Fox won’t discuss it

Oakland Raiders v Denver Broncos Getty Images

As the Broncos’ offense stagnated in Monday night’s 23-20 loss to the Raiders, Denver fans began to chant for backup quarterback Tim Tebow. John Fox was not amused.

According to the Denver Post, when Fox was asked in his post-game press conference if he considered making a change at quarterback, he ignored the question.

But what Fox can’t ignore is that for all we heard during training camp about how good Kyle Orton looked, he didn’t look all that good on Monday night. Yes, he threw for 304 yards, but that was a function of throwing 46 passes. Orton threw an interception and led the Broncos to four drives that ended in punts, and he lost a particularly costly, and ugly, fumble.

“I just feel sick about the ball slipping out of my hands like that,” Orton said. “It’s just one of those deals that’s sickening to have happen to you. It never really happened to me before.”

The fans in Denver were feeling sick about the way the offense played with Orton at the helm. But Fox won’t even discuss replacing him with Tebow.

    By chanting for Tebow they are actually chanting for Luck

  2. cakemixa says: Sep 13, 2011 8:15 AM

    Denver fans are IDIOTS. Do you really think Tebow would have done any better? LOL

  3. deanvernonwormer says: Sep 13, 2011 8:16 AM

    Orton, Tebow, and Quinn combined don’t even equal one Sanchez.

  4. drmonkeyarmy says: Sep 13, 2011 8:19 AM

    That is because Denver fans are wising up. Typical Orton game, lot of yards no end product. Another typical Orton game is racking up the yards when the team is down by 3-4 touchdowns thereby making it seem like he played well. Tebow might not play a pretty style but I have a hunch that it would be effective. Listen, bottom line is that Orton sucks and the Broncos would be better off in the long run giving Tebow an extended look.

  5. philriverslovespenis says: Sep 13, 2011 8:19 AM

    As a Broncos fan, seeing all of those morons chant Tebow’s name made me sick. However, the Broncos offense was just as disgusting.

  6. sj39 says: Sep 13, 2011 8:22 AM

    Orton is awful and Tebow should be playing.

  7. doowix says: Sep 13, 2011 8:24 AM

    Orton, Quinn, Tebow, and Sanchez combined don’t even equal one Stafford.

    Be careful what you wish for!

  9. denverdave3 says: Sep 13, 2011 8:24 AM

    I’m a Tebow fan but Fox was correct. Oakland’s D-line gave Denver’s young line fits and would have done the same with Tebow in there. The last thing Denver needed was Tebow’s running style. He would have been sacked nearly every play.

  10. pfii63 says: Sep 13, 2011 8:27 AM

    Anyone cheering for Tebow to play is either a moron or a Raiders fan.

    Redundant?

  11. 6the6ringedsteelerslolatyouremptylittletrophycase7 says: Sep 13, 2011 8:27 AM

    If they want a bum QB, give them a bum QB. Tebow will never be successful throwing the ball.

  12. flavordave says: Sep 13, 2011 8:30 AM

    Tebow isnt an NFL QB. Theres really nothing else to say about that. Hes a good guy, hes probably the greatest college player ever, but hes not an NFL QB.

  13. chuckiesez says: Sep 13, 2011 8:31 AM

    What did they think? While at Carolina, Fox would not play “Tebow Lite” Armanti Edwards. He does not believe in the spread offense, period, and is not going to put a QB in the game that is suited to the spread. The people that hired him should have seen this coming over a year ago. Tebow needs to get out while he is still young and maybe get a chance under another coach.

  14. rayriceisnice says: Sep 13, 2011 8:34 AM

    Put in tebow so luck doesn’t go to Indy! I hate those @@@&)&@$)&&)$&&& a$$ hole idiot€*+!*£!€

  15. tatum064 says: Sep 13, 2011 8:34 AM

    It wouldnt have mattered, simply because Fox wants to move the ball…and Oakland’s defensive line was simply too dominant. (Five sacks, and probably more if some OL holds got called) They didnt want to risk Tebow throwing turnovers or running, changing the offensive rhythm…

    a gadget play or two wouldve been nice, but Fox isnt that kind of coach, period. Check back in week 7 if they are 1-5 or something… Fox doesnt have to worry simply because McDaniels drafted Tebow. At some point they may have to consider it. It was a sloppy game to begin with, and couldve gotten worse had Tebow entered it, trying to do too much. Good game for Eric Decker (this is coming from Raider fan). Better days ahead Broncos….

  16. anactualnflowner says: Sep 13, 2011 8:35 AM

    And I thought Vikings fans were dumb…

  17. jetblackninja says: Sep 13, 2011 8:36 AM

    I know the idiot before you blew a 1st rounder on the clown….. but you HAVE to cut Tebow for this team to move forward and be effective.

    Think Haynesworth for the Redskins last year. The only way to get rid of the circus is to pack it up and move it to another town.

  18. broncobeta says: Sep 13, 2011 8:37 AM

    Orton may be better than Tebow, but Orton should in no way be on Denver’s roster next season.

    Therefore, Tebow should get a chance to prove what he can do, even if it’s nothing. At least that would put the debate to rest, and the franchise could move on.

  19. tiffpats4eva says: Sep 13, 2011 8:41 AM

    If Orton sucked and he outplayed Tiebow for the starting job, what’s wrong with the Denver fan base?

  20. ndallasruss says: Sep 13, 2011 8:45 AM

    After week 1, at least, Miami’s front office is looking pretty good for not bending over to get Orton.

    Henne: 30/49 for 416yds, 2tds, 1int, 93.6 qb rating

    Orton: 24/46 for 304yds, 1td, 1int, 71.3 qb rating

  21. omegaichiban says: Sep 13, 2011 8:46 AM

    In the terms of wins and losses, Tebow could have done no worse than lose the game. Dude is a winner. Orton couldn’t beat out Rex Grossman. Three straight losses to the Raiders. Start Tebow, I think the franchise would “‘preciate that”

  22. kspl1 says: Sep 13, 2011 8:46 AM

    I can’t wait for luck to get in the league and suck. In sick of hearing his name

  23. kwgator says: Sep 13, 2011 8:47 AM

    But Orton looked so good in practice. You mean, there is a pass rush and defensive backs in a NFL Game? PLAY TEBOW!!

  24. ijahru says: Sep 13, 2011 8:49 AM

    Fox should have went with Tebow this year. If he succeeds you have your QB of the future, if he fails then the fans will no longer undermine the current starter. Or they should have cut or traded Tebow. Either way it is going to be a distraction in Denver all year as long as Tebow isn’t playing.

  25. clintonportisheadd says: Sep 13, 2011 8:55 AM

    They weren’t chanting “Tebow”-they were chanting “Cee-Lo”. The game was boring and they wanted some quality entertainment!

  26. eagleswin says: Sep 13, 2011 8:55 AM

    I’m not a Broncos fan but the bias in general against Orton is pretty awful.

    1) There’s no mention of the touchdown he threw. Not one single mention.

    2) The Broncos running game was nonexistant. 37 yards on the ground, as a team! With no running game do you think the Raiders might’ve keyed on the pass?

    3) The winning QB in that game only threw for 105 yards but noone cares because the Raiders won.

    4) If the Broncos hold the Raiders on the last drive they have a chance to tie or win the game.

    No running game and defense was run over (literally) and the game was lost by the QB that threw 300+ yards and a TD?

    Orton is a solid QB. The rest of the team isn’t. If there is even the threat of a running game, most likely the Broncos win. The support the 3rd string QB gets is baffling.

  27. melikefootball says: Sep 13, 2011 8:57 AM

    Denever fans are wanting another Elway so bad they have been blinded by the Tebow halo.

  28. bleed4philly says: Sep 13, 2011 9:00 AM

    Seattle and Minnesota still need a qb…

  29. clintonportisheadd says: Sep 13, 2011 9:01 AM

    Meanwhile fans back in Carolina Panther land can only sit back and commiserate with the folks in Denver. John Fox has about the same communication skills as chair and his offense is about as vanilla as they come.

    As someone who has watched the Panthers for years I say this to the folks in Denver (with apologies to “Alien”). I can’t lie to you about your chances. But you do have my sympathies.

  30. rdrs68 says: Sep 13, 2011 9:04 AM

    uh hate to clue some of the donkey lovers in on this but your team needs more than a new QB.

  31. folkcrusader says: Sep 13, 2011 9:05 AM

    Start him. Let the Denver fan base drown in their own idiocy.

  32. comeonnowguys says: Sep 13, 2011 9:08 AM

    But yeah, Denver fans are happy Cutler’s gone. /eyeroll

  33. denisceo says: Sep 13, 2011 9:09 AM

    I’m all for playing Tebow..

    To begin with, the first reason is Denver needs to figure out their QB situation or unless no good players will end up in Denver. Orton is a free agent after the season, Tebow is first round money and Quinn, I am not sure of. Tebow seems like a big game player.. He plays to the crowd, that’s why they love him. He is special, John Fox should play him and put this behind him.

    Denver loses next game with Orton!

  34. drexelvol says: Sep 13, 2011 9:22 AM

    Kind of shows how dumb Denver fans are.

  35. mrclaytonbigsby says: Sep 13, 2011 9:23 AM

    Orton is a Preseason and practice probowler and a Regular season game day scrub.

  36. hystoracle says: Sep 13, 2011 9:27 AM

    Denver opened up this can of worms when they tried to trade Orton just before training camp. Now, every time Orton fouls up the chants will start – if for no other reason as to express frustration from the fan base. If your gonna lose anyway, they might as well try the younger QB that you traded up into the 1st round to get. I’m sure that is what some fans are thinking.. I think the fans are really just looking for some hope for their team.

  37. Keir says: Sep 13, 2011 9:32 AM

    Orton, Quinn, Tebow, Sanchez, and Stafford combined don’t even equal one Grossman.

  38. lgwelsh1 says: Sep 13, 2011 9:34 AM

    Start the kid. Put him in there, if he fails everyone shuts up. If he win’s everyone win’s.

    It’s not that hard.

  39. orakpownd says: Sep 13, 2011 9:41 AM

    Hey Keir…remember when Shanny was an idiot for starting Grossman and not going after Orton…I liked that part too…..

  40. mrplow3 says: Sep 13, 2011 9:44 AM

    I’m so tired of the Tebow haters trying to dismiss him without the man ever getting a legit shot.

    The limited action we saw of him, as a rookie mind you, was actually somewhat effective. So please tell me why these hateres are so hell bent on kicking this kid out of the league before his horrid play proves he deserves it?

    WHY?

    I have no dog in this hunt but it seems to me the Tebow lovers are not nearly as weird as the Tebow haters.

    Let him play! His performance will decide if he belongs in the league or not, not these pompous wind bag fans led by idiots like Hoge.

  41. Foresight2011 says: Sep 13, 2011 9:49 AM

    LMAO the national media and Bronco fans are proving how much or in this case how little they know about John Fox. This guy never gave a straight answer to any questions throughout his time here in Carolina.

    Get ready to here famous lines like “It is what it is” and “We pick a bad day to have a bad day”

    Not to mention at some point this season he will strong arm the OC when the play calling gets away from his plans for even a second. Also don’t count on any halftime adjustments from either side of the football.

    Last but not least, rookies and young guys usually don’t play in Fox’s system(Clausen was the horrible exception to this). He believes in veterans and giving them a chance to play over the youngsters no matter how bad the season is going. You have to pay your dues in Fox’s mind. Trust me if he had it his way, Tebow would not even be on the Bronco roster let along dressing out or playing in a live game.

    Does that still sound like a top NFL coach in your mind. People need to turn off ESPN and actually pay attention to a coach’s history.

  42. peytonwantsaflag says: Sep 13, 2011 9:49 AM

    Orton: 24/46 for 304yds, 1td, 1int, 71.3 qb rating

    —-

    And Henne’s INT came on the last play of the game, just throwing it up.

  44. ready4doomboom says: Sep 13, 2011 9:58 AM

    The thing that sucked I thought was I saw a McDaniels team again. So many mistakes mostly by his guys. Denver is a few drafts and off seasons away. I saw same old Knowshon, Orton, Ayers, Goodman, and no pass rush or running game.

    Seem to fit right with Orton fubmbling that ball. Even when the game is right there for him to make a simple dump pass he can’t do it. Since everyone just hates Tebow. I will start chanting put ” Bubby Brister In”!

  45. kevinfromphilly says: Sep 13, 2011 10:03 AM

    Orton, Quinn, Tebow, Sanchez, Stafford, Grossman, Mike Vick, Tom Brady, Bart Starr, the man in the moon, and Clark Kent don’t even equal one Cam Newton.

    (If you’re Bo Jackson)

  46. selmonfan63 says: Sep 13, 2011 10:04 AM

    Broncos fans will be chanting for Gruden by week 8.

  47. comeonnowguys says: Sep 13, 2011 10:04 AM

    I really don’t want to speak on behalf of a large contingent of people (but I’m going to anyway).

    The Tebow “haters” started out as people who listened to the college football world deify him (no pun/sarcasm/snark intended), and merely questioned his ability to transition to the NFL, a legitimate question that nearly every quarterback coming out of college before has faced.

    Every QB gets scrutinized. But for some reason, the slightest bit of scrutiny led to incredulous outrage from his fans. As it continued to build, it became more and more wearisome. And honestly, I think his fans are going to hinder his future in the NFL, I mean, how many coaches are going to want to deal with the circus John Fox has?

    I personally, don’t hate Tim Tebow. I’m skeptical of his ability to play QB from what I’ve seen at this point, but we’ll see. There’s a reason I’m not making NFL personnel decisions for a living.

    But if you consider that “hate,” then I don’t know what else to tell you, other than you’re probably part of the problem, and not helping Tebow as much as you think you are.

  48. btowncoltsfan says: Sep 13, 2011 10:07 AM

    Orton is WRONG when he says this has never happened to him before. This is an exerpt from a very costly fumble when he was at Purdue that put him out of contention for high draft pick and possibly Heissman Trophy Candidate

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — With less than three minutes to play and Wisconsin trailing Purdue by three points, Badgers cornerback Scott Starks suddenly had the game sitting at his feet.

    Starks returned a fumble by Purdue quarterback Kyle Orton 40 yards for a touchdown to lift 10th-ranked Wisconsin to a 20-17 win over No. 5 Purdue.

    Posted: Saturday October 16, 2004 9:30PM; Updated: Sunday October 17, 2004 2:14AM

    Kyle may say he has never done this before. I remember watching the 2004 Purdue-Wisconsin game that was LOST by an Orton fumble. At that time, it took Orton YEARS to recover. He basically wasn’t the same QB for the rest of the season. I’m sure he still remembers it so I don’t know why he would say it has never happened to him before.

  49. rpiotr01 says: Sep 13, 2011 10:12 AM

    Bronco fans should chant for John Elway to get back in the game. He’s sitting right there at every home game.

  52. simplesimon1 says: Sep 13, 2011 10:21 AM

    OK, Tebow fan or Tebow hater the fact is still this, no matter what you feel about the kids chances in the NFL.

    Orton was said to give the Broncos the best chance to win. That’s fine. But if your best chance to win still isn’t actually a win, why not put Tebow out there and see what the kid brings to the table? Orton is not a long term answer. Quinn is not a good replacement behind him. You’re paying Tebow a first round contract to sit on the bench. All the fans want to see him, the media wants to see him (whether to mock him or to adore him), etc.

    If he sucks, he sucks. But at some point, if you’re losing to teams like the Raiders anyways, then the “he gives us the best chance to win” argument goes out the window. If he sucks when he plays, you’ll shut everybody up that chants for him to play. If he is awesome, you find your new franchise QB. I’m not really sure what the downside to playing him is.

    I’m sure Tebow isn’t ready… but you Orton apologists are just plain silly and foolish.

    You say ‘Orton didn’t do well, because the Raiders defense wouldn’t LET HIM’???….. OHHHHHH I see…all this time I thought that a good QB found ways to beat the defense… evidently I was wrong. Oh, please pop the champaigne, he threw ONE touchdown pass. HURRAY!!! What is this – high school?

    Fox is as clueless in Denver as he was in Carolina.
    Elway should have stuck to car dealerships, because as a VP of Ops, not one thing has changed on this Bronco Team.
    BAD defense… BAD Offense.

    Orton is EXACTLY who we thought he was.

    Yards yards yards…. sputter sputter sputter… key mistakes…. Stop…. LOSS.

    No 5 sacks on Orton, that’s redundant. And four straight wins at Denver, that’s redundant.

  57. r8rsfan says: Sep 13, 2011 10:52 AM

    Tebow can’t block Richard Seymour or tackle Darren McFadden. But it’s entertaining to watch the fans in Donkville continue to build this kid up in their minds. By the time he gets to play the expectations are going to be so unrealistically high that he won’t have a chance.

  62. snnyjcbs says: Sep 13, 2011 11:31 AM

    I love it, the Raiders have the Denver Fans turning on not only the Team and Coach but on each other, and after only one game. Forget your QB, look at your O Line for having O Running game and your D for letting the Raiders Run The Ball for close to 200 yards.

  63. realdraftgm says: Sep 13, 2011 11:32 AM

    All Orton does is get yards without scoring. The defense bends but does not break because Orton cannott break a defense he sucks plain and simple; he is an average backup at best like I have always said good move by the Dolphins not getting the bum(although they still should of got (Mallett). Orton is also not a team player without much energy brought to the team reminds me of a Tiki Barber type. The Denver fans are smart Teebow played great down the stretch last year and as well in the preseason the guy does not make mistakes. Fox was forced by horseface Elway to faze Teebow out if he was to be hired. They called Orton the starter right after he got the job. Obviously Orton was given the job it was not earned. Teebow earned the job with his play down the stretch last year. What is sad is horse face just does not want Teebow to still his shine he should not be in his position if he still thinks he is bigger than the team and selfishly holds the team back kind of like Bob Bradley starting his son who is slower than fat Albert on the U.S. soccer team. The U.S. could of won the last world cup if he had played the right players; which alot were not even included in the team. Denver fans are some of the most educated in the game and they know Teebow could have a Michael Vick like impact yes that includes throwing the ball as well. That guy Glenn Johnson is so biased that even in thelast preseason game when Teebow threw the long gainer for like fifty yards and beat triple courage he said not one word about the good throw and instead talked of the mistake the defensive back made. Glenn Johnson you are not objective. Fox you are a grown man and it is time to act like a man and stand up to horseface and start your best quarterback which is Teebow.

  64. turdfurguson2 says: Sep 13, 2011 11:36 AM

    IT ISNT ABOUT TEBOW!!! Its about Orton he sucks. He is absolutely terrible. He is unathletic, he has no escape ability in the pocket, he just sucks. Everyone can see how bad he is. Tebow is probably bad too. Brady Quinn probably wouldnt have done much better. THATS OBVIOUS. Guess what BOTH of those guys can elude a pass rush and be an athlete, something that Orton is clearly not. Its not idiocy to want them to bench Orton. ITS NOT ABOUT STARTING TEBOW ITS ABOUT BENCHING ORTON!

  65. richl99 says: Sep 13, 2011 11:48 AM

    Man, gotta feel for Brady Quinn, the guy “is” the second string QB and really has never been given a true shot at playing anywhere. But you have to love Denver fans, normally fans chant for the 2nd string QB, but not in the thin air, they chant for the 3rd string QB who a lot of people said truly was the 4th best QB on the team during camp, smart bunch you all are…. lol

    ————————————–

    Given that the first sentence is a given, the second wasn’t needed…Just kidding Donks!

    Seriously, they should play him as many others have posted so we can find out if he can play at this level…

    My guess is he can’t but on this team, will it really matter who they play?

  67. droog12 says: Sep 13, 2011 11:59 AM

    How many of you actually watched the game? The receiving core sucked, they dropped at least 10 catches. Orton wasn’t perfect by any stretch, but you can’t pin the loss on him for that mess. Try the running game (non-existant), stonehanded receivers, and poor run defense.

  68. tdrizzle74 says: Sep 13, 2011 12:01 PM

    How about doing one the following better…it might prove helpful in winning:

    protecting the QB (minimize the sacks)

    front seven making tackles after intial contact at the line

    not taking stupid penalties

    not making un-forced turnovers

    not giving your opponent a short field with a minute left in the half and the best long range field goal kicker in the league

  69. bjtmeyer says: Sep 13, 2011 12:05 PM

    It’s not like the Broncos lost by a lot. Orton probably played better than Kerry Collins did in Indy.

  70. zaggs says: Sep 13, 2011 12:13 PM

    Here is the thing about Tebow vs Orton. Yes Orton is probably the better pure passer right now. But how many of those rushes that ended in sacks would Tebow wouldn’ve been able to avoid? Probably a couple. I also dont see Tebow dropping the ball (you can call it a fumble, but that just insults people who have fumbled) like Orton did.
    Dont forget as well a good deal of Orton’s yardage was due to bad tackling/play by Oakland.

  71. tqdrew says: Sep 13, 2011 12:17 PM

    The offensive line was terrible. Orton was getting hammered. Tebow would not have done any better throwing the ball. Orton threw the ball away because of pressure and the fans boo. Orton puts them in a position to tie the game but their D cannot get a stop…

  72. drmonkeyarmy says: Sep 13, 2011 12:23 PM

    RealdraftGM,
    You are delusional if you think the United States could have won the World Cup if Bob Bradley “would have played the right players.” The United States does not have the talent necessary to compete with most of the European countries. They wouldn’t even qualify for the WC if they were in UEFA instead of CONCACAF. Furthermore, Michael Bradley was, at the time, the best CM in the pool and played an outstanding World Cup. Your argument lost all credence as soon as you started talking this nonsense.

  73. turdfurguson2 says: Sep 13, 2011 12:24 PM

    @droog12

    Exactly what receiving core are you talking about??? Orton only threw the ball to Lloyd and Fells the whole game. No wonder Lloyd wanted him back he is the only guy he gets the ball to. 2 players dont make a “core”.

    @tdrizzle74

    Protect Orton?? how on the seymour sack seymour was blocked and Orton literally walked over to him and got sacked. Unforced turnovers? Like dropping the ball when no one touches you or like throwing a stupid pick at the end of the half, which leads into giving opponent a short field with a minute left.

    BENCH ORTON!

    Kyle Orton is doing just fine. When he has 1 second after the snap to get the ball down the field then it’s obviously the Offensive Lines fault.

    Tebow is “the other guy’s guy” and Fox will probably NEVER play him.

    Write the season off and trade Tebow to a team that will actually give him a shot (read as “a team that needs a QB).

    Will Denver get a 1st round pick for him? No. Probably not 2nd or 3rd either.

    But if Fox isn’t going to play him or even discuss the option then they need to cut their losses and let him try to to make a career somewhere else.

    Someone remind me why John Fox is even head coach material? I watched him flounder around here in Carolina for FAR too long and I do feel for you Denver fans out there….because it does NOT get better. Condolences y’all

    Denver Fans need to realize that its not Kyle Ortons fault.

    Tebow would RUIN their team at this moment.

  78. themama1 says: Sep 13, 2011 12:42 PM

    PLEASE about 1/2 of last seasons games were so ridiculously close. Why not take a few chances that Tebow can turn those games into wins. But noooo lets stay the course like Josh McDaniels did – we can see how well that turned out. Give the kid a chance. He is young, he is inexperienced, but without the proper opportunity………

    Orton is WRONG when he says this has never happened to him before. This is an exerpt from a very costly fumble when he was at Purdue that put him out of contention for high draft pick and possibly Heissman Trophy Candidate

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — With less than three minutes to play and Wisconsin trailing Purdue by three points, Badgers cornerback Scott Starks suddenly had the game sitting at his feet.

    Starks returned a fumble by Purdue quarterback Kyle Orton 40 yards for a touchdown to lift 10th-ranked Wisconsin to a 20-17 win over No. 5 Purdue.

    Kyle may say he has never done this before. I remember watching the 2004 Purdue-Wisconsin game that was LOST by an Orton fumble. At that time, it took Orton YEARS to recover. He basically wasn’t the same QB for the rest of the season. I’m sure he still remembers it so I don’t know why he would say it has never happened to him before.

    Good memory.

    Remeber when they played the Jets last year at home and he fumbled at the end of the game? At least in the redzone Tebow would tuck and run. No way that Seymour sack shoudl happen. He had Willis to dump to or just grow a pair and run. Everytime Orton has his chance he fails. How many times can you throw short?

    Just makes you mad at all the Denver wasted picks? Demaryius Thomas, Ayers, Moreno, The first rd pick traded to Sea when we traded Cutler. Fox and Elway have a lot to clean up. For all the Tebow haters at least he makes it entertaining when he is back there. Denve fans have the right to complain. Denver the orginization had been doing bad since 2005. No way should it be this bad with a Great owner and fan base.

    I will give credit where it’s due. Hue Jackson coached well and the Traiders punched us right in the mouth. Good wake-up call for the Donkey’s

    Not a fan of either team but it’s not all on Orton. Yeah he sucks but you could have stuck any QB back behind that Denver O Line and he’d have problems. Brady with Denver O line would look bad because he’d be running for his life most of the game. Whoever signed that line should give back their paycheck, resign quietly and take up soccer.

  81. torturedraiderfan says: Sep 13, 2011 1:11 PM

    Wow…..Denver fans calling for the third string QB and not the 2nd string. That says alot about Orton and Quinn. It’s gonna be along season if you’re a Donky fan.

    As a Broncos fan, seeing all of those morons chant Tebow’s name made me sick. However, the Broncos offense was just as disgusting.

    welcome to the john fox era be prepared to hang your heads in shame for he will pass on luck for a DE if he got his way. If they take Luck he will sit him on the bench as a third stringer.

    With John Fox as the Coach the only Bowl the Denver Broncos are going to is the Toilet Bowl

  84. jackfnburton says: Sep 13, 2011 1:57 PM

    How come we can’t disagree without the other person being a “moron”?

    Just wondering.

    Anyway, Denver got dominated in the trenches on both sides of the ball. Orlando Franklin’s total inability to pass defend was fully exposed. DB play was spotty. The running backs stunk. There were bogs of missed tackles and bonehead penalties.

    Sure. Put in Tebow. He’ll magically fix ALL of that.

  85. ready4doomboom says: Sep 13, 2011 2:51 PM

    I have the cure all formula for us Broncos fans.

    Ready….

    Kyle Orton needs to Shave!

    With the right team Orton could be a very good QB. He needs to get out of Denver and let them have Tebow and start fresh. I wish him well and hope he finds a good situation for him.

  87. pb420 says: Sep 13, 2011 3:03 PM

    What a distraction this has turned out to be.

  88. cowboysblowgoats says: Sep 13, 2011 3:32 PM

    It wasn’t the fans chanting, it was the angels.

    Jesus likes Tebow better.

    Put him in.

  89. adcoop22 says: Sep 13, 2011 3:34 PM

    Play Orton next week…we lose.
    Play Quinn next week…we get severely beaten
    Play Tebow…we still lose, but at least your don’t have to hear the chants.

  90. Spencer says: Sep 13, 2011 4:54 PM

    I’m confused by all the people doubting Tebow’s ability to play as well as Orton. I’m tired of this anti-Tebow bias. Tebow can do everything Orton did in that game, quite frankly, from throwing picks to fumbling. Only Tebow might score touchdowns if he gets in the red zone. I don’t know why those Tebow-obsessed Broncos fans would want to see that.

  91. ampking101 says: Sep 13, 2011 5:26 PM

    You know what as a Falcon fan, I’m tired of hearing all this Tebow is the answer talk. I say trade Orton to a team that actually will appreciate him and give him confidence and play Tebow. Make absolutely sure that there is no way Orton will ever play another game for the Broncos since they seem to hate him so much and lets see how good this guy really is.

    I say you guys go 0-16 but hey at least the fans are happy Orton’s gone. Hell I’d still rather be stuck with Chris Redman as a starter than Tebow. At least Orton has some talent.

  92. ozierdisaster3335 says: Sep 13, 2011 6:32 PM

    Orton is compared to Trent dilfer… as we know dilfer won a Superbowl..but in TODAY’S league you cannot with a game manager quarterback.. defense wins championships of course. But so does outscoring your opponent

  93. axespray says: Sep 13, 2011 6:59 PM

    considering Cutler has a stronger arm than both orton/tebow and that he’s capable of scrambling and having 2 3,500+ yd passing seasons with no Oline/WRs… idk, just saying…
    Denver had their new “Elway”.
    plus Hillis and Marshall.

  94. ready4doomboom says: Sep 13, 2011 7:08 PM

    Put Bradlee Van Pelt in lol. ” Is what it is “,

    Ugh I’m a Utes fan too and our QB isn’t promising either. PLUS, Matty Ice was my starter wk 1 in FF. Ewe to QB’s. lets go back to the Sammy Baugh days.

    Donkey fans are stupid enough to think their problem is the QB, and they need a change.

    Faider fans are stupid enough to think they don’t need a change at QB, and are happy with Campbell.

    We have either Campbell or Boller. What are we going to change to? Idiot.

  96. vegasbronco says: Sep 14, 2011 12:58 PM

    If the Denver Bronco fans get their wish for Tebow then that is a guarantee for Denver being in the Luck sweepsteaks. Thank you fans
