    If Denver is gonna start Orton I say their plan is to lose on purpose and get Luck.
    And, of course, the fact that all during the beginning of the season, the Broncos had no running game, a patchwork offensive line that didn't start to come together until the end of the season and the worst defense in the NFL.
    It's never as simple as wins and losses, particularly when evaluating a QB.

        Nice post, Cory.

        I especially liked the analysis of Fox as a delegator. I don't think you would ever see a coaching mutiny like we had last year under Fox.

          No, the Broncos won 23% of their starts with Orton last year/53% the year before, and they won 33% of the games Tebow started. Football is a team sport. Our defence was the worst in the league - Tebow had success against the second worst defence in the league.

          I think that it is a little over the top to project that Tebow will lead us to multiple Super Bowl victories.

          EFX will have to decide, and I will NEVER boo our starting QB EVER! I would love for Tebow to blow Orton out of the water, but unless he does I will root for Orton. He is nothing more than a scape goat right now.

            Bangarang. Freakin' nailed it on that one, my friend-- AND coming from someone who is pulling for Tebow to beat out Orton. Absolutely crazy.

            Back onto topic since I don't want to derail this thread: Awesome find, Cory. Definitely good stuff. :thumb:

              The part I liked was how a lot of fans want big free agents, but that's not how you build a team. You build through the draft. That's the only way to be fiscally responsible in the salary cap age. Then you reward your guys that are home grown. You only supplement through Free Agency. But you build through the draft.

                Agreed. You build through the draft and then supplement with free agency.

                Thanks for the post, Cory. Great to hear such things.

                  Your logic is faulty, pure and simple.

                  Statistics do not tell the whole story. By your theory, the Cowboys plan was to lose by going with Troy Aikman as their starter versus Jason Garrett.

                  Troy Aikman started 168 games in his career, winning 96. His winning percentage is .571, that is to say, he won roughly 57% of the games he started.

                  Jason Garrett started 8 games in his career, winning 5. His winning percentage is .625, that is to say, he won roughly 63% of the games he started.

                  Using your interpretation of the statistics, Dallas made a huge mistake by going with the HOF QB for all those years when they could have played their 2nd/3rd string QB Jason Garrett.

                  Now, doesn't that sound ridiculous?
                  Personal goals: GOAL WEIGHT = 250lbs
                  Weight loss needed for FGW = 120 lbs
                  Weight lost so far: - 24 lbs
