Denver Broncos "A Joke" to Rest of League

A month ago, this team was 1-4 and what I would consider a laughingstock for the NFL.  All I wanted was a win. I wanted one so bad I'd sell my soul for one. Instead, John Fox sold his soul to Tim Tebow and the result has been three victories in four games.  No longer a laughingstock right? WRONG.

Apparently, the Denver Broncos can win all the football games they want and they'll still be the biggest laughingstock in the NFL. What am I talking about, you ask? I made the unfortunate decision to turn on the radio this morning to Mike & Mike in the Morning just has they started to talk about the Broncos with former Eagles/Vikings wide receiver Cris Carter.

If any of you want to know what the phrase "This team gets no respect" means, look no further because no team - not even the 0-16 Detroit Lions - has been this disrespected by the major media.

So it starts out with one of the Mike's asking Cris what he thinks of the Denver Broncos. Laughter. Followed by a comment about how this franchise is a joke and that any team who loses to them should just blow it up and start over. Yes. Hey Oakland, Hey Kansas City, cut your entire team and redraft because Cris Carter says the Denver Broncos are the worst team in NFL history.  

Yeah not so bad, other than a major slap in the face, but he couldn't help himself.  One of the Mike's then asks if he would change his mind about Tebow and the Broncos if they bring down the New York Jets. Laughter. Followed by "not a chance". 

So next time you wonder what a disrespected franchise looks like, look at our beloved team. I hope our players heard this and will respond with a thorough ass whooping to the Jets on Thursday. We may not collectively be like Rodney Dangerfield, but our jokes will be funnier.

This isn't even about Tim Tebow anymore. This is a slap in the face to the entire organization and every single player in that locker room. Even John Fox isn't sure Tebow has what it takes, but at least he has the stones to do whatever it takes to win. In that article he stated:

If we were trying to run a regular offense, he'd be screwed.

What he does against conventional teams is rush the passer. Well, we don't have a passer. We have a runner. Not to say he can't pass at all, but we're recognizing his strengths.

Not exactly a ringing endorsement, but Fox understands how to win football games with what you got. From reading that article he seems about 50/50 on whether Tebow will succeed long term, but for now he can use Tebow to win football games and really who can call a team that is winning football games by running for 200+ yards a game "a joke" without sounding like a complete imbecile? Cris Carter can apparently.

I sure hope the cocky Jets will feel the same way about this team. Anyone who sleeps on these Denver Broncos are going to get run over and run under. And I can live with that. Perceived laughingstock or not...

Go Broncos!
