I won't call you a moron for thinking the Broncos were headed anywhere with Orton as QB but I'll say stats be damned, there's no way they win the West with Orton as QB.
There is no right or wrong answer as we'll never know but I'm amazed how anyone can think that Tebow didn't inspire his team to the playoffs
The Broncos won a game agaisnt a previously defeated team by scoring 15 points including an onsides kick recovery in the last few minutes of a game. They also sent a game into overtime with a 59 yard FG make and won the game with another long FG. They went 8-8 with a handful, yes a handful, of unprobable wins. Do I think Orton could have done that? I think if the defense played as good during a 6 game stretch they would have won more games easily than they did with Tebow at the helm.
Do I think Tebow's attitude helped, sure. But I also think inspired football only takes you so far.
