With 3 interceptions in the first half. Ugh. Being a Broncos fan feels like... being a Raiders fan.

Preseason discussion thread.

Kyle Orton sucking is not news and doesn't need its own thread.

You are the worst Broncos fan I have ever heard from. Perhaps you should switch teams and make everyone happier.

Give it time. New offense.

He's not great, but he won't have many 3 interception games.

Considering that Jay Cutler gets a new ******* thread every time he does anything remotely questionable, I find this thread highly worthwhile.

Hah @ KO.

Why do we have a new thread every time a Broncos player/coach does anything? Use the preseason discussion thread, or, wait for it, your own message board.

Because jimmy actually hates the broncos. Closet raider fan I think.

Very happy to play the Bronco's week 1.

Two scenarios

1. We beat them and alright! We have a win!
2. We lose to them and well, I know already this is going to be another 'sit back and hope we actually win this week' kind of year.

He's not this bad. He's a very good backup QB and a below average starter. Nothing less and nothing more.

Sub-par QB has a bad first game in a new system, doesn't deserve it's own thread. An honest person can't really have too high of expectations for Orton, hopefully he can limit his turnovers come regular season.

hopefully everyone understand these are just the first preseason games. There is a lot to be worked out still. by the 3rd preason game 60% of the teams will likely look like completely different teams when they're on the field. And even more so in week 1 of the regular season when the starter's play 4 quarters (for better or worse).

This is worrisome but at the same time it's probably hard to just come right in and play in a new offense out of nowhere. Chris Simms played very well, too. Might be a bit of a battle. If Orton starts (which I think he ultimately will), I expect something around 3,200 yards (58%), 20 TD, 14 INT.

Keep in mind that Simms ran a much simpler playbook than Orton tonight, and against the second string defense. There is no QB controversy or battle yet. Orton has been much better than Simms in training camp and has a few more chances up his sleeve.

Can just have one designated Broncos fan bitching thread so we don't have to see multiple threads a day on it? Oh wait, that's the Broncos discussion thread...

You do realize that one person makes them all right? There are very few Bronco fans on the board and even less are bitching.

No, you haven't. You've started six threads in the past two months and four of them have been about the Broncos. Other Broncos-related threads aside from this one are found below...

happy?
I dont like arguing on message boards, especially when im partially or wholy wrong. Im a broncos fan, i think broncos news is more important than most people would. time to fix that. but while the thread is up and active (unless a mod deletes it) can we at least discuss the topic at hand? i feel like if i needed to learn a lesson the time and place would have been in my inbox a day ago a warning saying jimmy stop making pointless, homer threads, not with a 2 page long schpiel about how it needs to go in the broncos thread. it's kind of unlike nfldc to let some thread like this get drawn out with nonsense unless its relevant, so ill let the mods decide whether or not it is. if it is, understandable, a lot of people seem to think so.

A lot of people would like to figure out when exactly the Lions went wrong. But it was a slow process from mediocre team to 0-16. The Broncos are doing us all a favour by doing it over with different steps in just one off-season so everyone can enjoy.

Start Chris Simms. I liked Simms, felt he wasn't handled properly in Tampa. I think he can potentially be a decent game manager with a fresh start.

well, once he became headcoach and made all those changes except getting robert ayers, alphonso smith, and moreno the broncos lost my favorite afc team title. the raiders with the coaching brawl has won me over
