Alright I admit it we were spoiled! Elway spoiled us. We all expect a John Elway with each new quarterback we get. Orton... is not Elway (of course), but I like him. So far we have 2 wins. No turnovers (from him) and good team management. How do we repay him? with boos in our home opener. Of course he is not the only victim. Jake Plummer ( who won games) also had to go through this as our quarterback.
What I find odd is I don't remember Jay Cutler getting booed. well until he returned in the bears broncos preseason game. Jay cutler has a worse record than either Plummer or Orton. He lost games and threw it up for grabs more often than he should. for goodness sake even Jamarcus Russell doesn't get booed as much as we have to our starting quarterbacks. And Russell is awful.
So here is Orton coming from the bears learning a new system with a new coach won against the bengals( Amazing luck) dominates the browns! and we boo him. Gosh people support your quarterback. Elway was great. Let Orton be the first to not be in the shadow of elway. There will never be another elway. But there are players that are winners Orton is one of them. He will lead the Broncos and will Lead them strong. Already he has stepped up and admited when he is wrong. all that I have seen from the first preseason game is a man improving every game with a strong desire to win. guess what he doesn't blame other players when something bad happends. Cutler would never say he was wrong and fix what he is doing. the result for cutler 4 pick first game.
So can we support our quarterback let him step away from the shadow of elway??? I can't help but feel sorry for teams like the colts and pats when their superstar quarterbacks leave a shadow over thier francise and fans.
