Kyle Orton reminded me of Tim Tebow. He played terribly for about three quarters and caught fire with the game on the line. I think KC's offense will be better next year when they get guys like Jamaal Charles and Tony Moeaki back. Despite the first three quarters, I think Orton helped his case for starting in KC next year. You have to remember that he's really only worked with these receivers and teammates for a month.
The Broncos still control their own destiny. A win over Kansas City next week and their in, or an Oakland loss will seal it too. Had the Chiefs won it could have set up the win-and-you're-in game we dreamed of. While the game is meaningless on paper for Kansas City I don't expect the Chiefs to quit heading to Denver. Not with Orton getting a chance to ruin Tebow's dream season.
We're rolling out the "Best of 2011" stuff here at WHO sports. Tonight we did best soundbites of the year, tomorrow plays of the year. My personal favorite (and there were plenty to choose from) was post match CyHawk wrestling press conference. Tom Brands and Kevin Jackson are hilarious. And they are serious too.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
