Then, one game happened. And the Broncos lost by three.
The masses are now demanding the most popular player on any losing NFL team: the backup.
Oh, never mind the fact that Orton was under siege all night on Monday from a relentless and formidible Raider front four. Never mind the fact that it's quite possible Tebow will do WORSE than Orton. And never mind the fact that an NFL game is dependent upon up to 48 different players, and an entire coaching staff all doing their jobs better than the other 48 players and staff across from them.
Give us what we want! Now!
It reminds me of two great quotes. The first is the so-called "Law of the Instrument."
"If the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail."
- Abraham Maslow
The other quote is from H.L. Mencken, aka "The Sage of Baltimore".
"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
If the Bronco fans get their wish, and Timmy Rah-Rah is plugged in on offense, oh yeah, they'll get what they want.
Good, and hard.
