This post could have been much different....
However, stupid mistakes, miscues, and penalties help send the Broncos to another defeat. A game they could have won. A game they probably should have won.
Snapping the ball? I thought that was Centering 101. I guess our guys are still working out the kinks on that shit.
4th down, game on the line, the opposing team throws up a dying duck pass all you got to do as the defending back is turn around and merely watch the ball hit the ground. Best not to stick your hand behind you and on the receiver...much less his facemask. Damn you Renaldo Hill. Poor decision there.
I guess some good can be taken away. The running game wasn't quite as abysmal as it has been the previous 5 games. Still, that is an issue in general. Weird after all those years of running prowess to see your team dead-last in that category.
Tebow? Not sure I'm ready to buy this, but I like the "let's try something" attitude that the coaching staff is putting out there. Tebow gadget plays look to be safe diversions.
A successful mid-game onside kick? Sure, love it. (Broncos don't capitalize though)
His stats were pedestrian I believe, but Orton worked some nice passes to his corps while they were well covered by the vaunted Jets Revis/Cromartie combo that resulted in catches.
At least we're tied with the Chargers and Raiders for last place in the West...things could get nuts with some well played divisional games.
