When a team is doing as badly as the Broncos, everyone comes under pressure -- even those who are excelling from a statistical standpoint, like quarterback Kyle Orton. Here's one explanation why, from a reader commenting on our post about a survey showing almost half of America wants Tim Tebow to start under center.
The comment comes from Bill:
tebow will be a great QB, yes orton has massive stats, but stats dont always relate to wins, broncos need some balance on offense, with no running game orton will have high numbers but denver needs defense, special teams and coaching more than offense
