With the backups playing? I'll take letting Teblow have average stats because of garbage time against backups in a prevent defense

Chris Houston may have cost me a fantasy game. I'm glad that's the only thing I have to complain about after a game. I know the Broncos weren't in the same category as ATL and SF but hopefully this helps us right the ship.

Great game! Yes, the Broncos are terrible, but no matter what, there's something to be said for blowing out a team.

Yep. If it had been close, we'd have reason to be concerned. But, it wasn't. The Lions did was a good team does to a bad team. They blew them out.

But keep in mind - Denver sucks

Also, I'm surprised linehan's started rolling cj to the slot to get him away from champ, who's been glued to him. Champ is still top notch


Yeah it was good to see them make that adjustment. Calvin got into the game once they put him in the slot. I'm still surprised that Denver didn't make an adjustment and try and keep Bailey on CJ. Harris was getting burnt all game long.

I'd like to again say I'm thankful that the lockout was resolved so we can watch our team grow into the one of the elite teams in the league. As a Lion fan I felt that we were due for a decent year with the talent we've acquired and I'm so happy I get to watch them all season(I picked the perfect season to get Sunday Ticket)and watch them climb from the basement into the QB abusement park they've become. I'm proud

And again, I like the way our ground game has looked the last 2 weeks. I hope we can still run the way we have with Morris and Williams. I know Jahvid Best should be back soon but the whole franchise could benefit by reducing his carries substantially. chalk up another road win

We always used to be on the receiving end of these downward-spiral-initiating games. No longer. :idea: :arrow:

Kiszla: Broncos need new meaning for Tim Tebowing
By Mark Kiszla
The Denver Post
POSTED: 10/30/2011 05:28:09 PM MDT

So maybe we need a new definition for Tebowing.

It's a prayer for mercy.

Please, in the name of heaven, bring us somebody who can actually play quarterback.

Tim Tebow got thrown to the Detroit Lions on a Sunday when the Broncos were busted, 45-10. Tebow played so ineptly as to reveal a truth that his most faithful fans do not want to acknowledge.

Tebow might be a spectacular physical specimen, but he is not an NFL quarterback.

"He's an athlete. He's no Peyton Manning or Tom Brady or no Michael Vick or none of that. He's got a long ways to go as far as being a quarterback," said Detroit cornerback Chris Houston, who returned a Tebow interception 100 yards for a touchdown.

Mercy me.

The Lions openly made fun of Tebow and his religion.

In a wild and crazy internet world where pop-culture fads are spawned at the speed of your 4G network, Detroit players sacked Tebow, stripped the football from Tebow and shoved his desire to mix Christianity with sports back in the face of Tebow.

Detroit linebacker Stephen Tulloch struck the Tebowing pose next to the fallen quarterback after tackling him for a loss during the opening half.

"I told a friend of mine that I might have a couple sacks this game and if I get him, I going to Tebow it," Tulloch told me in the Detroit locker room. "It was all fun. Nothing mocking. I want Tebow to know no disrespect to God or anybody, just having a little fun with it."

When former Broncos tight end Tony Scheffler caught a 1-yard pass for a touchdown, his elaborate end-zone celebration included a Mile High salute, but not until he bowed to give a little prayer that mimicked Tebow.

Ask Scheffler what he thinks of the humiliation now felt by old friends in Denver, however, and his heart goes out to a once-proud franchise in ruin. "It's just a shame that things have took that turn," Scheffler said.

The Tebowing craze went viral when he was caught praying by television cameras after leading a miraculous 15-point comeback against Miami in his first start of the season.

The quarterback's open display of Christianity quickly spawned a website, complete with photographs of everything from a bride Tebowing with her groom to a surfer catching a wave while kneeling in worship on his board. And because we live in America, you knew merchandise would also be available for sale on the site. A baby blue bib for your Tebowing toddler can be had for only $14.99.

"I might go out and buy a T-shirt," said Detroit linebacker Tulloch. He wasn't kidding.

Read Tebow's stats and weep. He completed 18-of-39 passes for 172 yards and committed turnovers that handed Detroit two touchdowns.

"We just wanted to make him be a quarterback," said Houston, who revealed the defensive game plan was based on the Lions' steadfast belief that Tebow was incapable of moving the Broncos to a score by completing six consecutive passes in any drive. "We had somebody take away his legs and made him use his arm."

Those five minutes of wonder against Miami now look like an aberration. Right here, right now, Tebow is the worst quarterback in the NFL.

And please remember this: Josh McDaniels drafted Tebow.

At this sorry rate of offensive efficiency, a 3-13 or even a 2-14 record wouldn't be out of the question for the Broncos. Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy might not use all 64 crayons in the box, but any way you color it, Denver can't win if Tebow fails to demonstrate passing skills that merit an opponent's respect.

Unless the Broncos can land Stanford's Andrew Luck or Southern Cal's Matt Barkley in the 2012 draft, Tebow is a quarterback who could get coach John Fox fired in Denver.

"I'm just going to get up early and go to work and try to get better tomorrow and consistently improve and be the best person and quarterback for this organization," said Tebow, whose optimism always is as bright as the next sunrise.

Hey, intangibles are awesome, but rarely prove to be as valuable to any quarterback as a discernable talent such as hitting a wide open receiver in the end zone.

Mr. Tebow, we hate to break this news:

You can't lead if you can't make plays.

Could Brady Quinn possibly be worse?

One thing I haven't seen noted too much is the lack of penalties for the Lions. I believe they had no penalties at all in the first half, and it was mostly the backups who got the penalties in the 2nd half. That's a huge improvement for them.
