I just read this in a comments section:

The Broncos have been the luckiest team in the league this year. Every week they play teams with major injuries to their star players. Get ready for more over hyped tebow talk....


I always leaned toward the "it's just like Wild Cat plays, they only last for so long" type of thing.

Lost in all the Teblowmania is that Denver's D is looking pretty damn good. If the D isn't hold teams to 13 points or less week after week then Teblowmania would've been dead weeks ago.

ORCHARD PARK, NY — Brian Dawkins has been fighting hard to play through a nagging neck injury.

But he lasted only a quarter Sunday against Buffalo.

The Broncos have announced that Dawkins will not return. Dawkins made three tackles in the first quarter.

He has been replaced by David Bruton.

Good, maybe he won't play against the chiefs.

The Broncos are choking. Can Tim Tebow save them? Better not fail, or else Tebow will make his boss look dumb and cheap.
If Denver can't beat Kansas City and outcast quarterback Kyle Orton with an NFL playoff berth at stake, then it will be the costliest fumble of Broncos executive John Elway's career and rank among the worst blunders in franchise history.
It smelled like desperation at Dove Valley on Monday afternoon, so I figured it was a good time to ask Denver coach John Fox:
Is Fox confident the better quarterback will be on his side against the Chiefs?
"I know we made that decision," replied Fox, well aware his team cut Orton in late November, banking $2.6 million in payroll savings with the transaction. "As I would say about anything moving forward, time will tell."
Now Orton could really make Denver pay.
Should his heroics cost the Broncos a spot in the Super Bowl tournament, there would be no positive way to spin it. In order to be penny-wise, Elway, Fox and general manager Brian Xanders would get pounded for being so dang foolish as to set up Orton for sweet revenge against a city that never particularly liked him.
For Tebow, the stakes could not be higher.
Choke against the Chiefs and Tebow would make Broncos owner Pat Bowlen appear cheap, cheap, cheap.
While the Tebow faithful will forgive their beloved quarterback for any football sin and try to ignore the sobering fact Denver has failed to score 20 points in seven of his 10 starts since taking over for Orton, it might be wise to remember: Tebow is not Elway's quarterback, but a first-round selection of former coach Josh McDaniels.
Tebow has earned the right to be a starter in Denver at the outset of next season. But I don't like his long-term prospects for holding the job should he stumble against Kansas City.
This is a must-win game for Tebow, unless he wants to trade his Superman's cape for the shadow of doubt certain to follow him from now through the NFL draft, as Elway carefully evaluates every quarterback prospect.
Fair or not, Orton was run out of town as a loser with a 12-21 record as the team's starting quarterback.
So, what would that make Tebow should he get whupped by Orton, causing another all-too-familiar collapse by the Broncos late in the season?
The braintrust of Elway, Fox and Xanders made a $2.6 million wager Orton didn't possess the skills or moxie to return and haunt Denver. Know what? The oddsmakers in Las Vegas agree, having established the Broncos as 3½-point favorites to defeat Kansas City.
But you know Orton would like nothing better than to force Broncomaniacs to take his name in vain one more time.
"I wouldn't doubt it if Kyle Orton delivers the speech (to the Chiefs) the night before the game," former Broncos safety Nick Ferguson said. "He wants to come back to prove to John Elway, the fans of Denver and John Fox that you guys chose the wrong quarterback."
For a Hall of Famer, Elway has displayed surprisingly little instinct for handling a sticky quarterback situation during his first year calling signals for the front office in Denver.
From the failure to trade Orton on the eve of training camp to an obvious reluctance to let Tebow play until the booing from the home crowd grew too loud to ignore, from allowing a veteran quarterback to assist an AFC West rival in the name of saving a few bucks to being browbeaten into giving Tebow a lukewarm endorsement for 2012 after the magic of a winning streak was gone, Elway has seemed uncommonly indecisive for the fearless gunslinger we remember wearing No. 7.
So what exactly is Elway's master plan at quarterback?
Right here, right now, it doesn't appear he has one.
Better hope Tebow can save Elway from embarrassment.
Time will tell.

As far as coach John Fox is concerned, the Broncos are already in the playoffs. At least that's how he looks at Sunday's home matchup against Kansas City.
"In my mind, it's much like a playoff game already," Fox said Monday. "We need to win this game and determine our fate."
That's not totally accurate, as Fox acknowledged. The Broncos can lose and still emerge as AFC West champions by virtue of tiebreakers if Oakland loses to San Diego, but Fox doesn't want to count on that.
"Our preparation, our mind-set is to do everything we can to win this week," he said.
But back-to-back ugly losses, by 18 and 26 points to the Patriots and Bills, respectively, have the Broncos appearing more than a little wobbly at

8-7.
"We need this game," running back Willis McGahee said. "We need it. We've got to have it. Just do what we're capable of and leave it all out there."
However, to turn Sunday's playoff-like game into an actual playoff appearance, the Broncos have to:
• Halt their habit of end-of-the-season slumps. Since the Broncos made their last postseason appearance in 2005, they are 9-19 in games played in December or January.
That includes this year's 2-2 mark in December. Fox has said he likes to divide the season into quarters, and the Broncos haven't had a winning record over the final quarter of a season since 2005.
"These are the games when you have to get it done," cornerback Champ Bailey said.
• Keep McGahee in the lineup. The Broncos have tried to walk a fine line between managing McGahee's workload as a 30-year-old running back and the fact they do far better the more often he carries the ball. The Broncos are 4-1 in games when he has had at least 20 carries, but just 4-6 in games when he doesn't play or gets fewer than 20 carries.
McGahee has been slowed by hand and hamstring injuries, and while the Broncos haven't said they adjusted his carries Saturday, they appeared to be limiting his carries against the Bills. McGahee is the hammer, makes the option look far more effective and is the only big back the Broncos have. Keep him on the field and the Broncos' chances of victory increase.
• Find a way to get Tebow more comfortable in the pocket. It's clear defenses have made the decision to pin Tebow in the pocket and take their chances. With each passing week, over the last month especially, defenses have played with more and more discipline, taking away the running lanes Tebow likes to use on the outside to escape the rush. The Patriots and the Bills rushed Tebow without allowing the rushers to go any deeper into the backfield than Tebow, so they limited his ability to duck underneath a defensive end who had strayed too far up the field.
As a result, Tebow is having a more difficult time escaping pressure and is often getting caught far behind the line. It's why he had a 28-yard sack against the Patriots, then a 12-yard sack against the Bills. His only opening to run on occasion has been to go backward.
Additionally, Tebow has not been able to consistently complete passes from the pocket. He has the lowest completion percentage, 48 percent, of any starting quarterback in the league with at least 240 pass attempts. The easiest way to improve that percentage is for the Broncos to win first and second downs more than they did Saturday, so Tebow can throw when the defense doesn't know he must.
"No starting quarterback is going to do well in those situations where defenses know what you have to do," Fox said.
Tebow has lost a fumble and thrown four interceptions in the past two games combined.
"When they did run it, we felt like we got a hat on them," Bills outside linebacker Chris Kelsay said. "We made them do some things they didn't want to."
• Spread the wealth. When the Broncos do throw lately, Tebow has stuck to the same targets. Eric Decker did not have a reception Saturday and has just 10 catches in the past seven games. Eddie Royal has only two catches in the last four games he has played. But Demaryius Thomas has 22 catches in the last four games. Defenses are layering their coverages to take away Tebow's favorite targets, believing he will not survey the field for other options before starting to run.
In Tebow's first three starts this season, he targeted Decker three times as often as any other receiver in the formation. Over the past three games, Tebow has targeted Thomas more than three times as often as any other player. Combine a more disciplined pass rush with the defenders' belief that Tebow "locks on" to specific receivers and you have part of the reason he is not completing 50 percent of his attempts.
• Play bigger. Over the past three weeks, opponents have rushed for 92, 114 and 103 yards against the Broncos' nickel package on defense (five defensive backs).
And in a copycat, do-it-until-they-stop-you business, Kansas City will try to do the same Sunday until the Broncos show they can slow it down. The Broncos moved to a heavier, four-down linemen look in the fourth quarter Saturday to stop the run, but they had to take their sack leader, Von Miller, off the field to do it.
The Chiefs, with Kyle Orton having a pretty good feel about the Broncos' defensive personnel, figure to join the club Sunday by running on passing downs against a smaller lineup.
"You just have to match up and make the plays," Bailey said. "The best defenses in the league are always the best-tackling defenses in the league. When we have a chance to get a guy down, we have to get them down."

Sure the Broncos started running the read-option, run-heavy offense on Nov. 6 at Oakland, but it was Nov. 13, in a 17-10 win at Kansas City, that the football nation really took notice.

That’s because, in Tim Tebow’s fourth start of 2011, the Broncos ran the ball 55 times while attempting only eight passes. Tebow completed just two of those throws, though one was a 56-yard touchdown to Eric Decker.

The Broncos surely will have to be far more balanced offensively this week against Kansas City, but players said today they expect the offensive philosophy to remain the same, just as it has through almost every game of Tebow’s tenure.


The Broncos are averaging 38.1 rushing attempts per game in Tebow’s 10 starts. The 55 against Kansas City was the most, followed by 51 attempts in a five-quarter overtime game against San Diego. The Broncos rushed 35 times in the loss to Buffalo last week, but 22 of those came in the first half, including nine of the opening drive.

“That’s been our model of success so far,” right guard Zane Beadles said. “You know, every game is its own entity, so whatever is working for us. In that game, that was the most we’ve run all season.”

Broncos players were back at Dove Valley today, going through meetings and conditioning work to begin preparing for the final regular season game against Kansas City.
The Broncos would win the AFC West title — and secure a home playoff game — by beating the Chiefs. If Denver loses to Kansas City, the only way into the postseason would be via an Oakland loss at home to San Diego.
Players said today they are only focusing on the first scenario: Beating Kansas City.
"We need to know the opportunity we have in front of us. You don't get that chance too often, to win one game and make it to the playoffs," said wide receiver Eddie Royal. "A lot of us know the feeling of watching the playoffs at home, and we don't

want that feeling, so we have to do everything in our power to make sure that that's not us this year."
The team will hold three practices, beginning on Wednesday, as it prepares for a Kansas City team sporting a new quarterback (Kyle Orton) and head coach (Romeo Crennel) since the teams last played on Nov. 13.
Offensive players said they understand Orton can pass along tips from the Broncos offense to the Kansas City coaching staff, but said the familiarity cuts both ways.
"I'm not worried about it," running back Willis McGahee said. "I don't think our defense is worried about it either. We know Kyle is a good quarterback."
Footnotes. The Broncos signed fullback Austin Sylvester to the active roster. To make room for Sylvester, the Broncos waived wide receiver/kick return Quan Cosby. Cosby was inactive for the Broncos' loss at Buffalo last Sunday.
Sylvester was on the team's practice squad into October, and was most recently on the practice squad in Tampa Bay.

John Elway proves Denver Broncos made the right hire

Quote
The Denver Broncos' hiring of John Elway to run their football operations smelled like a public-relations move when it was first announced before the 2011 season. The Broncos were struggling, and what would appease fans more than bringing back the city's biggest celebrity?

But with Elway calling the shots, the Broncos went from 4-12 in 2010 to 8-8 in 2011. They now sit at 6-3 and are running away with the AFC West.

Elway has made unpopular decisions: dumping Tim Tebow.

He has signed top-flight free agents: Peyton Manning.

He has re-signed talent on the roster: Champ Bailey.

He has hit on draft picks: Von Miller.

USA Today asked former New York Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi why Elway has succeeded where many other former stars failed.

"Certain players that play with their eyes open. They don't have tunnel vision," Accorsi said. "(Ravens GM) Ozzie (Newsome) used to evaluate my drafts when he was a player. John must have done that, too.

"John, with all his fame, probably had a bigger obstacle to overcome. He had to convince people that, in his own right, he could be a good general manager. Those PR moves don't last very long after the press conference is over. It turns out they knew exactly what they were doing."

Elway wanted to prove to everyone that he could do the job. He understood the circumstance of his hiring.

"My reputation probably had something to do with it," Elway said. "With where the organization was at that time, it needed a little boost, and I'm sure that had a lot to do with it also.

"And then I lacked experience at that level, so they were taking a big step with me, a risk with me."

The risk has paid off thus far. The upgrade from Tebow to Manning played a huge part, but Elway accomplished what several other teams weren't able to do -- sign the future Hall of Famer.

Broncos put Willis McGahee on IR

Quote
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos will have to make a deep run in the playoffs to get Willis McGahee any more carries this season.

The Broncos put their 31-year-old running back on recallable injured reserve Wednesday, meaning he can return to practice after missing the final six regular-season games and play in a game after Jan. 18.

That would bring Denver up to the AFC title game.

McGahee tore the medical collateral ligament in his right knee Sunday when he was tackled low by San Diego cornerback Quentin Jammer. Coach John Fox said McGahee won't need surgery, but he decided to put him on IR to give the Broncos some roster flexibility.

McGahee will be replaced by rookie Ronnie Hillman, Lance Ball and former first-round pick Knowshon Moreno, who have combined for 297 yards and two TDs on 82 carries so far, when the AFC West-leading Broncos (7-3) visit the Kansas City Chiefs (1-9) on Sunday.

"We're certainly going to miss Willis," quarterback Peyton Manning said. "To say we're not going to miss Willis would be not telling the truth because he's that good of a player. ... So, Knowshon and Ronnie and Lance have to step up. Everybody else has to step their game up, too, when you're missing one of your top players."

McGahee ranks fifth among AFC rushers with 731 yards and a 4.4-yard average. He also had 26 catches for 221 yards -- just 10 yards shy of his career high set in 2007 in Baltimore -- and his 33 career 100-yard games are more than any other active running back.

Denver's offense is built around Manning's pinpoint passing, but McGahee's success despite a career-high five fumbles provided the Broncos with a toughness between the tackles and kept opponents from teeing off on Manning and his receivers.

"The good thing is all three guys have played plenty early in the year. So, they're all familiar with the system and they've all got to pick up their game," offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said. "Every back, every player, has a different style. So, they'll do their thing. We have all the confidence in the world those guys can do that."

Of the three, Hillman has had the most work -- 49 carries for 188 yards -- but he's a smaller, shiftier tailback in the mold of Darren Sproles and the Broncos will watch his workload closely.

"Willis has had the most game repetitions, but Lance and Knowshon are veteran players and Ronnie's probably had as much experience as any rookie running back right now," Manning said. "Those guys will step up and do a good job."

Ball and Moreno have more experience in pass protection, and that's priority No. 1 for any running back in Denver, as evidenced by Ball's beautiful blitz pickup last week when he slid from the left side to the right, sparing Manning a vicious hit and allowing him to throw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Eric Decker.

"That was a huge block," said Manning, who expects those kinds of plays from whoever's in the backfield with him.

Hillman said the prospect of carrying a larger load now means "you've got to protect Peyton a lot longer. I've been in there a lot, but if I do get an extended role, then it's a little more pressure, being able to do everything right every play that I'm there."

The Broncos are keeping their options open as far as filling McGahee's spot on the roster. They could promote running back Jeremiah Johnson from their practice squad or sign a free agent. On Tuesday, they worked out former Houston running back Steve Slaton, who rushed for 1,282 yards and caught 50 passes as a rookie in 2008 before injuries and inconsistency took hold.

Fox, however, indicated he wasn't planning on adding another running back before Sunday's game.

"For this week, I think we feel very comfortable with who we have," Fox said. "And that can change based on anything we might do, but I think it's fair to say and pretty obvious that we'll pull from the guys we have that know our system."

Hillman was listed as a full participant at practice with a hamstring injury, but he told The Associated Press it wasn't an issue and that he hadn't aggravated the hamstring pull that set him back during training camp.
