Orton Hears A Boo…Or Two

10/9/11

CHARGERS VS BRONCOS

The end of baseball season for me means Nuggets basketball (although this season is a bust), and Broncos Football. If you follow this blog you know it’s not limited to baseball. I’m a Colorado Blogger and with that said I need to be flexible, so I blog about all kinds of events from Judas Priest concerts to my little town of Nederland’s famous “Frozen Dead Guy Days”.

 After almost ten years on the Broncos season ticket waiting list our number finally came up and Krista and I were offered the opportunity to purchase season tickets a few months ago. My wife is probably a bit more of a football fan than me(and a lot less of a baseball fan), but I’ve been a solid Broncos fan since 1989.

She supports me hanging out with the Rantics at Coors Field so I didn’t hesitate to get her the Broncos season tickets.

Happy Wife = Happy Life

 The plus side is I get to go too :) Hunter and Mylee both were able to attend the two home pre-season games and they had a great time.

Our seats are on the fifth level and only thing in front of us is a railing. Cool thing, not too far from our seats  is the Broncos fan mascot known as the Broncnater.

Here’s the Broncnator in full effect on the Big Screen.

Here he is in person.

Gotta respect a guy who puts his trademark name on his Jersey :)

This particular game was my third Broncos game of the season and although it was the Broncos forth loss I felt this game was blog worthy. The game kicked off the with the announcement that the skydivers were jumping out of the plane.  Everyone stands there and looks up and waits for the skydivers to enter the stadium.

If you’ve never seen live before this it can get a bit tense at times as these dudes swoop over extremely close to the crowd. Once these guys manuver themselves inside the stadium they are haul’n a-ss.

Nobody took a boot to the head so I’d call this one a perfect landing.

Then there was the flyover…That never gets old…Jets will always be cool.

 Ok, I was not on the Tebow bandwagon at the beginning of this game. I like Tebow but I figured he needed more time to learn the Broncos system and mature. But I’m not seeing anything I like from Mr. Orton thus far into the season. 

Not long into the game the boo’s started because of Orton’s performance and not long after the Tebow chants started to echo the stadium.

 I felt bad for Orton but not only did he put on a lackluster performance he just looked like he wasn’t into it. Body language says a lot. Kyle’s body language said..”Bench Me”

Coach Fox succumbed to the crowd pressure, pulled Orton, put in Tebow and the Broncos were back in the game. Something about Tebow, when he is on the field it feels electric. It’s like the Mile High Magic is back.

Say what you want, I was there and I felt it.

Here are some random game pictures.  

This dude is gonna be great.

Gets the two point conversion.

 

Decker Flying

This catch was one Coach Fox reviewed. He clearly had possession.

Upon further review it was a reception.

 Champ Baily doing his thing.

Sends Mathews airborne.

Mathews lands and loses possession of the ball. 

Broncos ball.

 Rivers attempts a throw to Jackson.

 Jackson thinks he has it.

I think at this point Jackson knows he’s lost it.

The Broncos had a chance to win the game with one second left close to the goal but it wasn’t to be.

Broncos lose to the Chargers. The final score was 29-24. I’ve never exited Mile High with a loss and seen the crowd still buzzing with excitement. Is Orton done and the Tebow era begun?

By the way..Have you heard of Tebowing? You’ll love this :)

I’m the Ranter…I’m on the Tebow wagon, I like a quarterback with heart.
