Cutler has had his good moments this season, but the Bears are winning because of their defense, a luxury that Cutler never had in Denver. He didn't have it in Chicago last year, either and look where that got him. So Bears fans who think they have their franchise QB had better hope that the Bears defensive identity holds up as long as #6 is their QB. He clearly cannot carry a team.

As for the Broncos and Tim Tebow, a lot remains to be seen. I'm excited for him and hope that we see a glimmer of hope in these remaining games. We could use it after this season. What I think is most impressive about his first start is that he did not turn the ball over. Very impressive for a rookie making his first start on the road against an above average defense. He took care of the ball, and that's a good start!

Good points. As we are guaranteed our worst season since 1967 (sheesh-that's 43 years!) let's see what the kid can do. He is after all the #1 draft choice from this season. The object here is to get some mileage out of your players.

I thought Tebow done all right Sunday, all things considered. He made some great plays, like the 40 yard dash for 6 points, the td pass to Brandon Lloyd, the ALMOST td pass in the 4th quarter (receivers name escapes me). One thing I want to stress here. It's not so much how well Tebow played OUT of the pocket (and he did), but how well he plays IN the pocket. And that will take time. It is going to take longer than just the two games remaining here to see if this is indeed our quarterback of the future. No doubt by then the new head coach will have to decide between Orton and Tebow.

Will the Broncos look for a head coach who has the backround to fit in philosophy wise what Tebow excels at? Where the two can be absolutley compatible? I don't know myself, I'm sure the administration is going to look at this closely. And then there is the administration itself. What kind of changes will happen here?

They've also reeled Cutler in by a substantial amount. Hell, they had to since letting him air it out results in a bulk supply of interceptions.

Per this webpage, Cutler is tied for 10th in interceptions, having thrown 13 so far this year, yet 9 of 40 QB's have thrown 14 or more picks.

Note that the webpage is interactive, you can sort on any column, a neat feature.

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to all my Bronco fan friends....guessing a few things on our Christmas lists are the same.

Enjoy your holidays, be safe and have peace.

the Broncos need an Andy Reid 2010 defensive draft. I am so happy though that Tebow played, and played well. They still lost but it was nice to see him play, hope he remains the starter.

Tebow had himself a very good game, especially once Mike McCoy quit being a complete dumbass with the playcalling. He still has instances where he throws sloppy passes or goes gunslinger on us, but overall I am extremely pleased with the way he played.

I was again, pleased with Tebow's performance. He seems calm and confident. Considering how little he has actually played until now, he's doing well. It's encouraging....at least makes it seem we have something to build on.
