The media can be brutal and I hope Orton learns a lesson and John Elway can be his best teacher. Early in John’s career the media was brutal and still is. He and I were room mates and I know how tough it was. John handled it like a pro. There was even a guy that published the type of candy he gave out at Halloween….seriously. The reporter was an idiot.
Think about it, we’re out here in the wild-wild west, nothing around for hundreds of miles but media bored to death.
Rockies are struggling, Av’s who? and basketballs going to have a tough CBA so, outa site, outa mind, and it’s August, so nothing to do for them but be HOT and create as much controversy as possible to get folks all riled up to call into radio shows and sell newspapers. It’s a game and don’t buy the ticket.
You’ve seen it before. It’s a rerun of years past. Just because McDaniels drafted Tim in the first round doesn’t mean he’s ready to play. Tebow will be ready when he’s ready and I’m a big fan of his as an athlete, but Rodgers sat at Green Bay for 4 years and now look at him. I’m in no hurry to see Tebow play. I saw Vinny Testaverde struggle early in his career due to being thrown to the wolves too early.
We actually have bigger issues than the QB spot. We have an offensive line to get together before the Thursday opener against the Cowboys. Hate to say this but if we don’t get that ready, we may need all three QB’s before the season ends.
The offseason probably hurt us as much if not more than any team in the league, because we could have used the OTA’s as bad as anyone and I also think the limited hitting is going to really hurt the young guys. I can promise you, I needed the contact at this level when I showed up here as much as the rest of the rookies and I played at the “U” where we ran a Pro-Set with Jim Kelly behind me.
So I don’t really care who the QB is, I just want the team to do well and that’s why I’m a homer and pulling for whoever’s in the drivers seat and the O-Line that’s going to be driving the bus.
It all starts upfront!!
P.S. And yes, as many of you know that have been on the blog awhile, my neighbor is all Cowboys so I’ve already started on him about the upcoming game.
