Angry White Dude: Enjoy Your Off-Season Broncos, You Deserve It!

In 2010, the Denver Broncos used a first round selection to draft future MLB minor leaguer Tim Tebow, and they probably had a lot to do with his career taking that turn.

Instead of being patient and letting him learn and grow -- and having a promising QB on their team for a really long time -- they decided to send Tebow packing and bring in an aging Peyton Manning.

Denver wanted a winner, and they wanted it right now.

Well, they sure got their trip to the promised land.


They sold their soul, and even though Peyton's skills had eroded so badly, it was almost embarassing, they still won the Super Bowl!

Oh, the joy!  We're the champions!


Yes. Yes you were.

For one season, and then, what next?


Correct. Dudes became average at best!

The Broncos are a joke, and they've just fired their coach, who was given the wrong ingredients to make chicken salad, if you get my drift.

Suffice to say, Vance Joseph wasn't an achemist. Or whatever.


Wonder who'll fire Elway?

He made the decision to trade Tebow. Why didn't keep Tim on the team and let him learn from both Elway and Manning, just possibly two of the best QB's of all time? 

No rush to get him on the field, play him where they had a spot to get him in. You know, like the league's top teams do and have done more often than not.

However, someone didn't want the distractions. People don't plan to fail, they just fail to ... well, you know ...


Denver, that's you all over!

So today, Tebow is out of the NFL and, just maybe, will be on an MLB roster one day.

Denver stinks, their QBs stink, and they don't have a coach! That's gotta be some sorta negative hat trick.


The Broncos can, however, think back to when Elway led them to back-to-back Super Bowls -- during the era of color TV, even -- and when Manning somehow won the last one for them.

It's 'way  more fun than thinking about what Denver is today:

  • Sad,
  • Bland, and for now,
  • Coachless.

Yep, enjoy your off-season, Denver. You deserve it.
