John Fox said following the 'Whooping in Wisconsin" that Kyle Orton needs to remain in the game and at quarter back so that he can continue to learn "this" system and "not be judged on the past," which is the new front office Kyle Orton mantra, replacing "best chance to win."
But that brings up a big question. I've been under the impression that the offense McCoy is employing is for the most part the same as the one we had last year but for some minor changes. But to hear Fox's words, it's entirely new and KO needs time to learn it and get tested in it.
Now, many who wish to see Tim Tebow get a chance to show what he has will say he's learning a new offense following a lockout and that's contributed to his less than stellar training camp, while those that flat out don't like Tim Tebow have claimed it's basically the same offense and that it points to complete TT failure.
So... WHICH IS IT?
Anyone really know. Some of you have been to traiing camp. What is this offense? Same? Slightly modified? Completely new?
I'm thinking its modified enough to be different (especially to a young QB learning a new style of play and coming off a lockout), but not so different it should be a major change for a seven year veteran.
I just don't know which. But I will say that this whole new front office mantra that "Kyle needs time to be judged by the new system and not the past" smells like a replacement for the "best chance to win" mantra that wasn't holding water.
I still think that barring some wholesale transformation of this team into a contender, the front office is playing economics with TT's escalators in his contract and that barring a turnaround in the coming weeks that has us at .650 or better, we'll see TT after the eighth game when his escalators can't kick in.
Thoughts anyone??? Is this the same offense, different or modified and are economics somewhere in the mix regarding finding out what TT has?
