Broncos vs. Packers: Fox |
Head Coach John Fox talks about Sunday's 49-23 loss to the Packers.

Rodgers leads Packers to a laughably easy win over Broncos, 49-23 - The Denver Post
GREEN BAY, Wisc. — For a little more than 2 hours, Aaron Rodgers had a new toy. He would push a button, and watch the Broncos secondary slowly shuffle while Packers receivers would sprint.

"We need our starting quarterback to get experience for us to improve. That's the idea behind that. You know he needs to get better in our system," Fox said. "I know he gets judged on the past couple of years, but we're trying to get him better in our system and use that experience to get better."

Broncos fans agree there's no reason to keep Kyle Orton as the starting QB - The Denver Post
It was a laugher all right. Such a knee-slapper I had to walk out and do yard work. If you're going to utilize Tim Tebow, you don't make him a running back on your own side of the 50 and run him straight into the pile.

Aaron Rodgers' epic 6-TD performance vs. Broncos gives him early MVP edge - Peter King -
Tim Tebow is lost at sea in the Rocky Mountains. Tebow's total offensive output in the first quarter of 2011: minus-one yard. No passes. One rush. I continue to be mystified that the 23rd-ranked offensive team in the NFL cannot find a package of plays for a fullback/wingback/quarterback/wildcat-quarterback with the determination of a Brahma bull.

NFL Game Center: Denver Broncos at Green Bay Packers - 2011 Week 4
So even on a day when he threw for a career-high 408 yards and tied a career best with four touchdown passes, Rodgers was perhaps most pleased with his two rushing touchdowns in the Green Bay Packers' 49-23 rout of the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

"Well, that and we did it once and it lost yardage," Fox said. "That wasn't all on him by any stretch. It didn't prove to be real beneficial, so we went a different direction. I thought all in all we moved the ball pretty effectively. We just didn't score as many points as we needed to."

George Diaz: Time for Broncos to start Tim Tebow at QB - Orlando Sentinel
I have no idea whether Tim Tebow will sizzle or fizzle if he ever gets behind center on a consistent basis for the Denver Broncos. But I do know this: Denver is 1-3 and going nowhere fast with Kyle.

Denver Broncos' "Tebow package" limited to one snap against Green Bay Packers - The Denver Post
Even Packers fans, who have the best quarterback on the planet, wanted Broncos coach John Fox to put in Tim Tebow.

Packers keep momentum with onside kick - The Denver Post
Already up 14-3 with 50 seconds remaining in the first quarter, Packers coach Mike McCarthy tried to put the hammer down early on the Broncos.

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson returns to the end zone - The Denver Post
Charles Woodson knew exactly how many career interceptions he had when he woke up Sunday morning. He knew exactly how many he had taken back for touchdowns too.
