Since we all now know that Orton is:

"Smart"
"Great playing in a spread"
"Very accurate"
"Has surprising arm strength"

Here's a great game!

Using the search function or just a bad ass memory, try to find a positive post about Kyle Orton from any Orangemane member from his pre-Bronco days. Simply: any post that's older than 3 months ago.

Looking forward to reading the results.

Well about the arm strength part, I dont understand why some criticize his arm strength, because that isnt a weakness of his.

Not that arm strength matters THAT much, but anyone who thinks he has a weak arm has never seen him play.

"Napoleon complex"

This was pretty positive.

"On that note, I personally would love to see us pick up Orton as Cutler's backup next season. He's got starting experience and already had something of a baptism by fire. I think he'd be a very solid backup and would let us keep the vertical aspects of our offense under Cutler in tact."

Did you bother to research before posting?
Bears don't need a QB, Kyle Orton is perfectly fine for them.
Bengals don't need a QB with Palmer, and you don't draft a QB high to be a fricken backup.
Dolphins, you say Pennington is garbage, is that why he has a 93.7 QB rating this year?
Bills, Trent Edwards was playing very well in his 2nd year before getting hurt. They don't need a QB
Jaguars do not need a QB, Garrard is still a decent QB and young.
Bucs, I think you finally found a team needing a QB.
Jets, possible, although they do have some young QB's on their roster in Clemens and Ainge.
Vikings, I think Jackson could be a decent QB if given time.
Rams, Bulger is still a decent QB. OL is awful there.
49ers could use help almost everywhere
Lions same
Chiefs, Thigpen just might turn out to be a decent QB.

With all that said, Stafford is still a better QB than Tebow. Stafford could play right now, Tebow is a developmental project.
Bradford isn't coming out either.

"Bears don't need a QB, Kyle Orton is perfectly fine for them." Eh, pretty positive.

Bronco Steven.

I find it funny that Duh Bear's fans and media all wanted to trade for Anderson and cut Orton.

Now Orton is having a great year and Anderson is on the bench. I give Orton props for sticking out the REXMAN years.

This is a pretty eye-opening game, really.

I mean, who would have thought that fans of one team wouldn't spend their days praising QBs from another?

Even more stunning, who would have thought fans of the Broncos to support their own players and coaches, to some extent.

Has anyone alerted the Denver Post to this turn of events? Clearly, page-one news.

Because everyone gets talked about here, sooner or later, especially if a player would upgrade the football team.

Orton was having a good year before he got hurt, so he wasnt quite a nobody

No....you obviously didnt get the memo...

the '08 Broncos were one player away from making the Super Bowl....we just needed ONE DT...

now that Cutler is gone we are at least a decade and a half away from even reaching .500

Orton actually had a better Touchdown - Interception ratio than Jay last year, interestingly enough.

Also ran 3 TD's in compared to Jay's 2.

So, quite clearly, he's miles better.

Orton was actually doing well last year before he hurt his ankle or whatever.

IF we can get that Orton all year this year plus him benefiting from an upgrade in offensive talent, he is not going to be a problem for us

You can go look up his stats if you doubt me, the Bears were averaging like 28 PPG with him, and he had a good qb rating as well

Granted Forte helped, but Knowshon is no slouch himself

To be honest I don't think I ever made a comment about Orton on the Mane before, but I could be wrong.

We have went from a dynamic QB, to an average QB. I think everyone agrees on that. The thing people don't agree on is what QB will get more wins.

Then you have others like me who choose to not worry about it. If a player doesn't want to be on the team what can you do? Mcdaniels could have kissed ass, and Cutler may have still wanted to leave. Now you have a coach that groveled and didn't get the player, from that point on he gets no respect from the other players.

At least this way players know they have to play hard or they are gone.

I bet the Broncos fly around a lot this yr. You would be surprised how players will rally around a coach they feel is being attacked from the outside.

I think all the people laughing at Denver, saying they will stink, saying Mcdaniels can't get it done, will result in a close knit team that plays really hard for the coach.

And my point is that it wasn't "well-written". We wouldn't be arguing the point right now if you'd said "it was basically a blog" and admitted that the author has a very weak grasp of grammar, spelling, and semantics (We are arguing "semantics" here...:) ). "Making a good case for his take" is a very different thing from "well-written", which does suggest at least a passing semblance of proper sentence structure and correct word usage. And an understanding that vowels are not interchangeable...that the words "birth" and "berth" have different meanings. Again, if that article had been submitted to my freshman English teacher, it would have had plentiful red marks on it and would have been lucky to be graded a "D". No way can it possibly be considered "well-written"....
