I said it when they released him. Sun Tzu is rolling in his grave.

So about a month ago, the Denver Broncos decided to do something incredibly stupid. They got rid of one of their Generals, allowing anyone to pick him up for free. Now, desperately needing a win, they go up against their former teammate, and new leader for the Chiefs, Kyle Orton.

Strategically, this move from the beginning, made no sense whatsoever. If the Chiefs didn't pick him, the bears would have. both played or will play the broncos after the move, and now, when the Broncos need it the most, they're going up against someone who;

1) Knows Denver's strengths and weaknesses.

2) Knows the offesnive and presumably defensive play calls.

3) Really wants to prove to Denver they screwed up when they ran him off the starting position.

I'm not Nostradomas, so I can't tell the outcome of the game. . . but KC's defense have been making fools out of people in the last month, and the offense is coming around a little. They even managed to dictate my beloved packers their first loss in a year... yes. it was an entire calendar year.

I sincerely hope Tebow can win this game and get to the playoffs. I love the story developing in Denver.

I think it's just crazy to have let orton go without even a hint of compensation... I know, they couldn't have traded him even if they wanted to, but to give another team a decent player at such a difficult position... Just bad strategy.

Sun Tzu, buried in China somewhere, is telling his afterlife friends how crappy of a military strategist the Bronco's front office it. Elway may have been one of the 5-10 best QBs of all time (I'd put him in there above Favre), but so far as a GM, much is left to be desired.

Good Luck an Merry Christmas my football friends.
