...To do the right thing - at this time for this Team!
I t has been quite some time since I have put a Fan Post up and I have been reluctant (to come out from under my rock) to participate in most of the heated debates of the last few years, but I have been intently watching the "show" daily...I just wanted to share a quick thought about something that just might really help with our Team's surging success.
First let me say that I have always thought that Kyle Orton coulda-woulda-shoulda be the best choice to be the leader our Team while we let our young players get the time (with a few more good drafts) and experience needed to get the Broncos back to elite prominence...Although KO did show moments of brillance, he has (obviously) not been able to prove that he is much more than solid back-up or possibly a stop gap starter...And now, as a Bronco Fan since the Red Miller days, I am glad to see TT get his chance!
"OK Dude, you're not telling us we don't already know, so what's the point of your post?"
Well, it looks to me that our Team is really starting to show signs of legitimate improvement (especially on OL & Defense) and it is certainly conceivable that we have a shot at maiking the playoffs.
Here's my point (and I haven't heard that it's happened yet???)...It's time for Kyle Orton to gather the Team together and (tear off the "C" on his jersey) offer up his Captain status to Tim Tebow for the remainder of the season...It would be a great Team gesture, obviously TT has earned it, and it would undoubtly help to reinforce the locker room and on-field unity that will be needed if the Broncos are to make that playoff run we are all hoping for.
GO BRONCOS...11-5 Until We Aint!!!
