    I twitter, and fb, I know many fans who are calling for KO's head.

  • TheTroglodyte

    When the offense is struggling the backup qb is always the most popular guy in town. When Orton was the Bears qb everyone wanted Grossman. When Grossman was the qb everyone wanted Orton. When the Jets were struggling with Pennington at the helm, everyone wanted Kellen Clemmens.

    Orton obviously has some serious limitations. I too would like to see what Simms can do now. That being said, it's a tad foolish for everyone to think Simms would go in there and completely change the dynamic of this offense with the way our line is blocking.

    Would we score more points? Maybe. We certainly wouldn't score less. The playbook wouldn't suddenly open up to manifest destiny though because a qb needs a full 3 seconds to throw the ball for that to happen and right now, there not getting it done.

    I say we call for Woody's head.

    Woody has the most interesting way of writing about sports. I always enjoy watching him fumble over his words on Around the Horn.

  • Kyle

    Kyle Orton was on Woody's Pro Bowl ballot three weeks ago. Fickle fickle.

  • MrEast

    Words of truth from The Troglodyte.

    I remember the whole Patrick Ramsey v. Mark Brunell saga. Redskins fans were sick of the bust that was Patrick Ramsey so they wanted Brunell to start. The Redskins fans got their wish and it wasn't so pretty. Soon afterwards the start Ramsey chant began.

  • MrEast

    He also went from picking Denver to be 4-12 to having a playoff run.

  • Josh Temple

    I think Big Ben might have been a little upset he had to participate in the game Monday night rather than attending to other things:
