True, but my point is the defense held opponents for Orton too. That season opener against Oakland was a sloppy game all around, but the Broncos could easily have won it. Orton didn't play well and had a costly late fumble. Is it all on him? No, but he had the chance to win that game. The Tennesse game was another one I felt they let get away, though playcalling was a bigger issue in that one, as far as I'm concerned.
I just think overall, things have been clicking better since Tebow took over. If the offense is off, the defense steps up, and vice versa (the Minnesota game). And when they have a bad game (Detroit, NE), everyone seems to get it out of their system at once.
I have a really good feeling about this week though. Tebow, for his career (including college), has almost always done well in high-pressure games.
