Probably not the best move if you're from DENVER and trying to score votes in DENVER, because you want to represent DENVER, which is part of COLORADO and that team from DENVER is playing a team from NEW YORK...It could only mean one thing: you must be wishing for a massive injury to DENVER'S starting quarterback--well either that or John Elway is a Republican.

B-b-b-bennet and the Jets
Denver Post, Allison Sherry, October 15, 2010
Republicans rebuked Michael Bennet late Friday for bringing in a New York Jets all-pro linebacker to phone bank for the Democratic senator — when the Jets are in town to play the Broncos — asking in a press release whether Bennet wants Broncos QB Kyle Orton to get hurt Sunday. "There is no greater proof that Michael Bennet is grossly out-of-touch with his own constituents than the fact that he would rather abandon the Denver Broncos to suit up with Jets linebacker Jason Taylor this weekend," said Republican National Committee spokesman Bill Riggs."Michael Bennet seems to be totally oblivious to the values and loyalties of the people he hopes to represent. Colorado deserves a Senator who won’t turn their back on the Broncos when it’s politically expedient."
According to the New York Daily News, Taylor is a Democratic contributor and gave $10,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2008.
