At first I was excited to hear that Josh McDaniels was getting fired, but then I realized I had to watch the rest of the season.
Eric Studsville is obviously not going to be the head coach next year. He mentioned that Kyle Orton is going to be the starter because they are going to try and win the last four games. The reason for Orton starting and trying win out is simple. Eric is applying for a job somewhere else for next season. This is an interview process in his eyes for a possible coordinator position or even a head coach position somewhere college or pro. He is not concerned with developing talent for the future of the Denver Broncos. So where does that leave fans for the remaining schedule: To watch an interim coach perform an audition.
The last four games will be incredibly frustrating unless Joe Ellis or God forbid Pat Bowlen step in and say we want to give the fans something to look forward to. “Put Tebow and the young guys in.” I admit I am sick of watching the same product from the McDaniels era, namely “Mr. Nonclutch” Kyle Orton. I want to see what the future players are going to look like and actually see what the heck Tim Tebow looks like in a real game. Almost any coach who is playing in a lost season would start Tebow and give him some game experience, but I fear we won’t get to see Tebow play until 2011.
