Broncos Players Irked By QB Debate Between Orton and Tebow

The Kyle Orton vs. Tim Tebow debate is already bothering some of their teammates according to Josina Anderson of ESPN.com.

“I think it’s all B.S.,” Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Lloyd said in a phone interview Tuesday. “I think everybody is just waiting for an opportunity to move (Orton) out and play anybody other than him.”

“That’s the circumstances that we’re in. That’s the climate that we’re in, and we knew we were going to be in — so be it. There’s no being patient with Kyle. Kyle is ready to go. He didn’t perform maybe as well as people expected him to. Whatever. He’s our quarterback, and we’re going to eventually win games,” Lloyd said.

“We knew it was going to be this kind of environment surrounding (Orton) and whatever is going on,” Lloyd said. “If (Orton) wins, we’re all geniuses. If we lose, put in someone else. It’s not new in sports. So this tactic that the media is taking is not new.”

Despite fans clamoring loudly for Tebow late in the fourth quarter, some of his teammates don’t expect Fox to make a change.

“I don’t think anything is going to change with our depth chart,” linebacker Joe Mays said via phone Tuesvday. “I don’t think that they’re going to bring Tebow in. We just have to execute with what we have.”

“Do you want Kyle to complete all those throws? Absolutely,” Broncos linebacker Mario Haggan said. “Is he human? Yes, he is. Is he going to make mistakes? Yes, he is, and he did. So that’s what we have to live with.”

“If the coaches feel Tim Tebow is needed, they will use him. That is the same for any position and quarterback is no different.”

    Do you really think the Broncos’ organization can completely ignore the consumers of its product in such an arrogant fashion. What other industry can the CEO, president, and employees publicly insinuate that the consumers of its product are too stupid to have a say about the quality of its product. Why do you think the fans were chanting Tebow? The fans have seen what both Orton and Tebow can do on the field, and they want Tebow. The consumer is not worried about mechanics, foot work, or stats. They want to be entertained with a quality product, like every other NFL fan. The Broncos have not won and the fans have not been entertained for over two years with Orton, and they want a change. The Broncos made management and coaching changes last year, but not a QB change. If they don’t make a QB change soon, then there will be more management and coaching changes. That is how business works, including the NFL and including teams without Tebow. C’mon Man…get with it!!!!

    Well ain’t that way too bad, Bronco players that you are irked!! I don’t know if anyone of “importance” will read this….but there are many Littleton fans discussing boycotting the games if there is a repeat of Monday night!!!! Josh McDaniels destroyed the team, and now John Fox is on his way to destroying the fan support. Oh, yes, classy act of your, Mr. Fox, with Craig Silverman.
