    And even in doing that he still probably completed the pass for a first down or more.

    And Orton may have been better, but his time in Denver was plain awful. And that's all I judge him by. Tim had the same team he did, minus his best receiver in Brandon Lloyd and Tim took that team to the playoffs.

    Tebow was by far and away the best QB we had in 2010-11.
    If Tebow was as good as you claim, he'd have started more games for someone. You may feel he was the best QB, but actual football people gave Quinn and Orton another chance.

    Tebow was the QB of a team that went to the playoffs, big difference from taking a team to the playoffs (see performance v Buffalo and KC).

    But getting back to Bortles, he'll be on the roster for a few weeks, then he'll be released.

    Well, it's not liked they just signed Peyton Manning in his prime. The dude was sitting on his couch, unsigned, for a reason

    Oh, yeah. They loaded the box against TT. Never thought I'd see PAP from empty.

    Tim Tebow was not the best QB on that team, but he was the best football player at the QB position and he was the better leader of the QBs we had. He also was extremely lucky, didn’t we play 3 backup QBs in a row and had an inexplicable gaffe by Marion Barber to even keep us in that Chicago game.

    The team’s mindset with Tebow was different. With Orton they either thought he was good enough to win games or gave them no chance at all but when Tebow came in, they played very well either because they knew he wasn’t scoring much or because we ran the ball so much offenses couldn’t find a rhythm against a fresh defense. That and DCs just threw everything out the window when they played him.

    I see Bortles is already a fan favorite, lol. Something about the #5, Flacco and now Bortles.

    I guess that speaks to just how bad the Broncos QB room was that year, since he never played QB again. Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn at least started games after that.

    Bugs or Buhlahkay (Key & Peele pronunciation )?

    But we don't need a Center.
    I wonder if he can kick a 74 yard field goal.....

    Marlin Briscoe, CFB Hall of Fame, but had a hard time becoming a QB in the NFL. The league hasn't changed much.
