If they don't get Luck, can they please...please...please address the DT position in the draft. It's been ignored far too long by this organization.

I think we need a cornerback and qb before a defensive tackle. We have stopped the run pretty well this year.

Yeah he is just that bad. He's got no poise, no drive, no anything.

I declare him the Matt Hunwick of the Broncos, he sucks, but we continue to play him.

No we can just play Orton and not give up a stud safety

I personally don't think Orton played that bad of a game. The problem is that this offense really doesn't have the weapons to break open big plays. Orton checks down and throws only 10-15 yards downfield (don't know if this is exactly Orton or the OC), they don't have a TE threat whatsoever, and the blocking sucks.

I think Von Miller is a solid addition and Raheem Moore looks good, but outside of Champ and Dumervil there isn't anyone else. And all of those players I just listed are soft, skill type players. They need some serious meat and brute force along that defense in the middle.

It's amazing just looking at how much work still needs to be done with this team.

Yesterday showed Broncos fans just how far away we are from being a Super Bowl caliber team. I'm not Orton's biggest fan, but he wasn't the reason for the loss yesterday. Rodgers just had his way with the defense.... reminded me of Manning several seasons ago when he shredded our D. The offense would have needed to play a perfect game just to keep up with them on the scoreboard.

We are a team in transition and there are just too many areas on the roster than need improvement. QB gets all of the attention, but the Broncos have way more to address.

Exactly. The way this team has been dismantled with poor drafts, misguided trades, and a revolving door of "schemes" has left us with a roster of predominantly journeyman role players.

Orton is the main reason for the offenses crapiness. Plays were available yesterday Orton just didn't make them. Under throwing Lloyd for a gimmie TD which resulted in a INT, throwing a pick 6 to get the other team rolling, not finishing drives in the red zone. Lets put the blame where it needs to be on Orton, the guy just can't make plays. Blocking was good yesterday, 100 yard rusher and only one sack allowed, I'd say that's getting the job done. Orton has play makers Lloyd, Decker etc. he just doesn't get the job done, its time for someone else (Tebow or Quinn don't care) to get a shot, too see if they can make something happen.

Our pass defense is horrid. Our rush defense was solid today and our pass rush was good too. Our defense is not going to be able to stop the Packers offense. The Saints let up 40 points against them. There's probably two or three teams in the league that can stop them.

If we were going to beat them, it would have to be by outscoring them. Orton isn't going to get it done. He can hit receivers when their wide open, but after that he sucks. He under throws almost every ball, and if there is any pressure he goes down. I'm no Tebow fanatic, but he at least would have made it a more competitive game.

On a side note, Why are we not using Knowshon at all? He's not great or even good for that matter, but we should be running him and Mcgahee every play not putting the ball in Orton's hands.

Sometimes I wonder if Knowshon would make a better slot receiver than running back.

Sometimes I wonder what we could get in return fo Knowshon. 2nd rounder maybe?

I have a feeling at this point it's gonna take Elway or Bowlen to force Fox to make a change for him to do it.

CBS did EFX no favors by showing the film of Rodgers in college having a very similar throwing motion to Tebow as Rodgers was shredding the defense.

Well the more they lose, the more likely Tebow will play.

It's inevitable - they have more than seen what Orton can offer. His contract is up at the end of the year. Quinn's deal is up at the end of the year, and Tebow is the only man left (I believe - someone correct me if I am wrong).

With one QB on the roster for next year, you have to see what Tebow and/or Quinn can offer so you know if you need a QB in free agency or the draft. Hell, they will need one anyways but at least you know how big/small of a move you need to make for next year after watching both of them play.

We're not getting a 2nd for Kwonshow unless there's a surreptitious dose of Rohypnol to the other GM included in the deal. He's either a late pick dump or a flat out cut at this point.

Hey guys, Wild fan here. Was just curious if anyone knew of a writer (or blogger) for the Denver Pioneers hockey team that is on twitter that I could follow for team updates before/during/after games. Thanks in advance!

I can finally understand why all these coaches took that Raiders job - they were probably waiting for Al to pass on. Hue Jackson's in a great place now and will probably be the coach there for a while.
