Sometimes a brutal loss leaves you in disgust of your team (see Oakland Raiders, 2010).

Sometimes a brutal loss leaves you in awe of your opponent. This one was a bit more of the latter.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers put a number on the Denver Broncos Sunday. An early 3-0 lead by the Broncos quickly became a 21-3 rout in favor of Green Bay. The Broncos clawed back to 21-17 before haltime, but then Rodgers and the Pack took control and never looked back.

The Packers (4-0) won their 10th straight game including postseason with their 49-23 victory in Week 4 of NFL action. The Broncos fell to 1-3 with one game, a home battle against the San Diego Chargers, left before their bye.

It didn’t matter who started this game: Kyle Orton, Tim Tebow, Tom Brady — the Broncos were completely outmatched both in personnel and game plan. Dish out what you would’ve done differently in the comments.

    On another note it was good to see Doom back in there applying pressure, and our Rookies earning their stripes with Moore’s deflected pick and Miller’s 2 sacks….he has had 1 sack, 1 sack, and now 2 Sacks!  1..1…2…?  It’s the Fibonacci sequence folks!  Holy smokes that means 3 sacks against Rivers coming up.  I’ll even root for Orton again if Rivers is playing…!

  • King

    Kyle will definitely make the Practice Hall of Fame.  First ballot !

  • King

    Much of it is pinned on him.  When you play defense and see your QB make the mistakes he does, it brings the players down. 

    Defensive football is a game of aggression.  Makes no difference if you make X,XXX,XXX dollars per year or are playing in the backyard. 

  • King

    I can tell you have never played competitive football with that statement. 

  • King

    I agree.  Miller and even Dumervil still has a shot, if he stays healthy.

    QB?

  • Nisse

    and then 5 sacks in the bye week, poor orton :(

    its also the 911 emergency number in sweden.

    Fox sucks as a coach.

  • pat

    I’m thinking you have a QB that has proven himself in college (TEBOW).   What’s your problem here?  You know he may just have somebody bigger than anybody that we know here on earth that is backing him  ????????????  You may have got him for a reason.  If you don’t use him somebody may come along and take him right from under your nose….I know that the Jaguars could probably use him… Oh by the way I’m a diehard Packer fan  and I think they have finally brought together a great team………I was also a Bret Fayre fan…He was a great QB…(his 90 mile an hour will never be beat) ….the Packers new kid on the block seems to be every bit as good a quarterback and more ….I want to wish the Broncos good luck…You have been a good team for years …As long as I can remember I don’t believe I have seen these type of scores for you

  • Roy

    I get it dude, but do you have to scream in our eyeballs?

  • Roy

    That’s true, and when a defense has to take the field with a “time to bail out our QB again” mentality, it really sucks the life out of them.

  • Roy

    Can I like this more than once?

  • Roy

    You know what really got me frustrated? Watching the defense give a free pass to all of the receivers. Personally I don’t care what kind of defense they are playing, if the receiver is within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage put a chip on them. At the very least it will wear them down after a quarter or two. I may have nightmares tonight about the Packers’ seam routes…

  • flbronc

    he doenst want to hear that…  he’s been reminded of that fact numerous times by numerous people.  save your keystrokes.  i think xanders kicked his dog or something.

    Defense:
    The defense looks much improved from last year. We CAN pressure the quarterback. Green Bay’s spread offense is difficult to stop and it makes me wonder why more teams don’t use it. Their backup looked good and almost beat New England in prime time last year. You take that quarterback friendly offense, add some serious receiver talent, and a real talent like Rodgers and any defense will struggle. Champ Bailey was seriously missed and our corners are depleted otherwise with Sydquan going down, Goodman being old, and Cassius lacking ball skills.

    The offensive line is getting better (they can actually move the line of scrimmage on run plays). We need bay bay and Royal to stay healthy to complete a good receiver corpse that includes Lloyd and Decker. The tight ends are young and athletic. So what is the missing piece? U guessed it, an NFL quarterback. Orton sucked with the Bears and relied on their defense and Devin Hester for all those wins he had there. The underthrows to Lloyd on the flee flicker and go route show he cannot make NFL throws. Can Tebow? How will we know if he never plays.

    Other things about Orton. He makes up his mind before the play on where he is going with the ball (ask Charles Woodson). He rarely goes through progressions and panics when called upon to extend a play. He is accurate on short and intermediate throws but that is all I can say good on his behalf. The people of Denver need a quarterback that wants to win. All teams want to see that in their quarterback don’t they? At least Tebow will leave it all on the field and at the end of the season we will know if he is the future. Orton has played in this league and started enough games for even the average fan to know that he has maxed out on his potential. He is a servicable backup or slightly below average starter with no game changing ability.

    Play the kid now or lose your fan base like last year Fox. Wake up and realize that Orton is not the answer in this quarterback driven league.

    Changing coaches and philosophy every few years is how you end up in the basement for decades.  Not something I want to see.

    Cox was too stupid on the field to stay.  He had to be sent packing.

    I can’t believe Kyle Orton gave up 50 points. 

    He’s obviously a choker and hates the fans! 

  • Anonymous

    He gave up 21 if you count the 3 int’s which you should.

  • Anonymous

    Please.  I’ll give you the pick six.  Woodson jumped all over that route and Orton made a lazy throw.   The game was over before picks two and three. 

    I think any attempts at laying the blame on anyone other than the pathetic secondary for what happened yesterday is silly.   

  • King

    So true, Trog. 

    Don’t worry about, Herc.  He’s the board Ortonite.

    Rahim Moore has been as bad as anyone out there.  That kid has been a massive dissapointment so far.  He was terrible yesterday, just absolute dog-crap.

    I want to see what Tebow can do before drafting Another quarterback in the first round.

    No, I’m not.  I’m the board “guy who actually wants the team to try and win games”

    Fox went 78 – 74 as a head coach in Carolina. Since 2005 they went

    11 – 5
    8 – 8
    7 – 9
    12 – 4
    8 – 8
    2 – 14

    Apparently keeping the same Fox doesn’t do much for you either.

    Von is a once in a generation talent. I’m not sure I agree with the Cox part either as he is likely going to prison for a few years.

    Did you play in the NFL?  Did you?  The only way you’re qualified to crap all over Leo here is if you played at a major college program and then later played in the NFL.  Is that the case?   If it is, point me toward your profootball reference page and I’ll hapilly sponsor it for the next decade. 

    By the way, he’s completely right. ”Leadership” “heart” “desire”?  That’s all useless bullshit at the NFL level if you can’t play.

    Yeah, seven of them.

    Stole his girlfriend.  Which suddenly makes me think less of Xanders.

    I don’t think they have the secondary to play bump and run or man-to-man w/o Champ.  They were stuck playing zone.

  • Anonymous

    He gave up 14 to int’s the other 7 was Fells fumble.  The defense gave up 3 drives 80, 80, 79 yards and Fells fumble 86 yards.  Not good.

    Fox knew last season was his last in Carolina.  What exactly did he owe the fan base?

  • Anonymous

    He played left-out.

  • AtomicLeo

    He was horrible yesterday, but it’s his 4 NFL game. The fact that he’s starting pretty much sums up what’s wrong with the secondary right now.

  • King

    Without desire, we succeed at nothing in life. 

    People devoid of desire live in cardboard boxes under the overpass. 

    Have a nice day !

    LB.  Have a nice day!

    How do you even get to 14?  You’re talking about potential points on two and three.  

  • Jorjazapper

    I agree Jon, but i’m beginning to think that  Denver is not good enough for Tebow. He needs to be somewhere he can do what he does best. PLAY FOOTBALL

  • Jorjazapper

    no matter who the coaches or who the quarterbacks, this was definitely Aaron Rodgers game.

  • King

    C’mon herc.  Rahim, “gives us the best chance to win.” 

    If only you were so quick to throw Chokin’ O’ under the bus the same way you have the rook Rahim.

    I think there are plenty of fingers to be pointed after this one.  The secondary is a big one but Orton is far from innocent.  I’d point a big finger at Dennis Allen, Mike McCoy and John Fox as well.  Our game planning was total shit.  

  • David

    This team has a ton of issues, we need youth and talent at both the DT and CB positions, I thought our O-line played well (McGehee had 103 yards on 16 carries)  and Orton had adequate time to make some nice throws, he also had adequate time to make crappy ones as well, i would like to see this on a consistent basis. As far as the QB position, I heard a description of Tony Romo that I thought worked well for Orton “great statistics, great between the 20′s…….he just doesn’t have “it”, and will not be any better than he is right now.” Now I don’t know if Quinn or Tebow is the answer, but the Broncos have to know before they go out and try to get Luck, Barkley or any other young QB.

    The fans are getting upset with the same old product on the field, and I think if the Broncos show some change or at least some moves before the trade deadline….something to show they are trying to get better as fans we will be happier.

    GO BRONCOS!!!!

    That brings up an interesting thought, how many Broncos could be starters if they played for GB?  I would say 4-5 AT MOST.  Von Miller, Doom, and Champ definitely could be but after that Clady, Lloyd and Decker are the only ones that would even have a remote chance.  Really goes to show the talent gap between us and the elite teams.  Kind of like the JV squad going against the varsity.

    Oh yeah, it’s totally the same thing.  Great point, guy!

    The second int lead to a TD.  I’m going by points off of turnovers.

    Fair enough.  The D still had over half the field to stop them…
