View Full Version : Kyle Orton : Iíve had a strong enough arm my entire career. I donít listen to critics

We’re getting ever closer - training camps in the National Football League are just about a month away. As we’ve said here on Sports Radio Interviews all offseason, the play of the quarterbacks in Chicago and in Denver are going to dominate the headlines - and deservedly so - for much of 2009 and even beyond. All eyes will be on young quarterback Kyle Orton to make the Broncos look either really smart or really, really stupid for dealing Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears this offseason. With training camp approaching, let’s take a listen to Orton to see how things are progressing in new coach Josh McDaniels’s explosive system. He joined 104.3 The Fan in Denver on Wednesday to talk about being named the starter by his head coach (’for now’) before the start of training camp and other similar topics.


On if he was surprised that Coach McDaniels named him the starter over Chris Simms despite training camp being more than a month away:

“I didn’t put too much thought in to it - I just try to go out every day and improve and get this offense under my belt and play as good as I can.”



On how he’s gone about exuding leadership qualities in the few short months he’s been in Denver, particularly since his coach has shown so much confidence in him:

“Yeah I think it’s an important thing to have a quarterback that carries the leadership role. I think it’s been tough early on, splitting reps, and having one guy in the huddle and then another guy in the huddle. It’s a tough thing to develop leadership from the position when it’s like that. So that’s really what I look forward to at training camp - being in there with one guy and really trying to lead this football team and lead this offense to be as good as we can be and see if we can win a lot of football games this year.”



On what fans and the media can expect from Josh McDaniels’s offense when it’s clicking:

“You’re not going to see one thing from week to week. I think we try to exploit the team’s weaknesses that we’re going to play and hopefully just find the best way to beat that football team and as long as the players execute the system we should win a lot of games.”


On what he says to those who think he doesn’t have NFL-caliber arm strength:

“I’ve had a strong enough arm my entire career. I don’t listen to critics. I feel like I’ve had a nice start to my career and being with these coaches and these players, I’m just getting better and better and I just think this trade is the jump start to the second part of my career.”

I could care less about any individuals on the Broncos roster. What I would like to see is the team improve throughout the season instead of getting their asses handed to them and embarrassed down the stretch.

Bring back the era of "ugly wins" and playoff births. At least back then we had a chance and made the playoffs even though we were severely outplayed but that is what happens whey you play superbowl contenders.

sometimes medium strength arms do better. The QB realizes some throws he just can't make, while the Cutler type will try any throw. Many times the one who makes decisions based on what he knows he can't do makes far fewer mistakes.

That's been my complaint for years, now.

I think we can all agree that this season is going to be tough. Even with no changes, this schedule would have been pretty brutal. But, installing a new offense/defense... it's going to be a rebuilding year.

But, I still think this team will be an improved team by season's end.

People around this message board will remain fixed on the QB, just like they did with Cutler and Plummer. But, Orton won't be the story. He'll just be part of it. McDaniels is installing a completely new philosophy for this franchise. If guys buy in, and I believe they are... you're going to see a much different Broncos team.

To me, the kind of philosophy McDaniels is installing is not only much more effective over time... it's just more fun to watch and root for.

he doesn't have a Cutler type of arm, but he is far from being a Chad pennington type. look at his college highlights, he has a decent arm. just in Chicago he was never given an opportunity to showcase the arm, due to lack of weapons, and the conservative style of offense the Bears always run.

Neck beard will be fine. We all will have to remember mistakes happen, especially at the QB position, so I am more concerned on how he will take the immense pressure from the OMANERS and the rest of the city when he has a bad game, or makes a dumb decision. He's solid, let's see if he's solid upstairs.

I've seen Orton enough to conclude his arm strength is fine for the NFL. He doesn't have a rocket, but he gets the throws there where he needs to. His lack of mobility is what concerns me the most. I should say his quickness or lack of bothers me. It seems to take him awhile to build up any kind of speed while escaping the rush or simply getting out of the pocket and quicker DL tend to get him before he can escape. Once he gets going and building up speed, he can get down the field. It's just the short area quickness where he seems to be lacking. But with this OL the Broncos, that shouldn't be as big a deal as it was with the Bears.

But Raiders - Broncos is the true rivalry for most Denver fans, and Denver -KC is not far behind.

Over the decades, SD has pretty much been a non factor until the last 5 years.. Eventually we know they'll return to middle of the pack.

I could see it as bad as 4-5 wins, and as good as 8-9. But, I would have probably thought about the same if we made NO changes. We barely won 7 games last year, not including the freebie our buddy Ed gave us.

So, barely 7 wins last year... so add or subtract a couple.

It really doesn't matter. We're not going to win the Superbowl this year, or probably even make the playoffs. But, I do expect to see a foundation for success forming for this team.

If by the end of the season, we're not making any progress... I'll be as critical as anyone. But, I'm going to give this franchise a chance to put what I believe to be the proper philosophy in place before I start making rash judgments.

I can see where you're coming from in this post, but it's flagrantly pessimistic.

In one off-season the Broncos upgraded their QB position and managed to also get 2 firsts and a third in the process!

If the picks pan out as well as Orton will, it's a deep playoff team.

Orton's arm is fine
he has above average arm strength, was flinging it all over the place at Purdue

Sure he may not hit Royal 65 yards downfield on a rope, but Cutler had a poor deep ball as well despite his god like armstrength

Armstrength can come in handy, but look at Jemarcus Russell, dude sucks and has like the strongest arm in the league

Welcome to the Mane BearMan18, seems like you'll fit in fine here. Popps isn't pessimistic, just being cautiously realistic simply from the volume of changes here this year.

He has a solid take on football and what it takes to build a winning team, and isn't shy about voicing his opinion or giving a Chill Pill to some of the Nervous Nellies around here who seem perpetually convinced the sky is falling.

There are a lot of solid and hopeful signs that McD has this train heading on the right track, and no doubt there will be plenty bumps in the road, but if even half of these new draft picks, UDFAs and FA pan out ... and we can grab a dash of injury luck, which we haven't had much of the past couple years, we could very well surprise a lot of people by years end.

I've followed Orton some since Purdue and always liked the guy, and felt he was shackled some in the Bears offense. But in the games I've watched I never saw him really flame out or blow his cool, even on a bad hair day for him and the whole team. And the one thing you consistently hear is how much his teammates in the trenches with him like and respect him. That to me says alot.

If he was a **** up who couldn't command the huddle when the chips were down, there simply wouldn't be that much fondness for the guy among his peers, no matter how good a drinkin buddy he was with the guys.

I suspect too that this move for him will let him .. and the rest of us ... really find out how good he can be. Hopefully to everyone's satisfaction outside of Chokeland, KC and SD.

Quite a number of Orton well-wishers out there in Bears land, for what it's worth. I've always felt you can get a fairly good tell on a player from his former team's fans. (i.e. We hated to see Sharpe go, but weren't so broken up about Griese leaving, etc.)

idk

his arm seems decent to me, always has. it is stronger than Plummer's was, he can put some nice touch on longer and intermediate throws, and looks like when you give him a couple seconds to plant his feet and throw, he will make good things happen.

i for one am not too broken up over Jay no longer being here, because i think Orton can kick ass with our line protecting him and our weapons helping him out.

Question I have, would a Shanahan coached team with Cutler at Qb and a heathy stable of RB's only win 4 games in 2009! Its highly unlikely.

Lets keep in mind, BMarsh had over 100 receptions two consecutive years b/c Denver never had a RB who gained 1500-1700 yards! That's way Cutler had the huge passing stats.

Think about it for moment how impactful a consistent zone blocking running attack would have been last season. Teams could not have cheated and zoned in on our pass attack, the running game could have protected leads, and or ran the clock out. More importantly, had Denver not endured 7 RB's suffering season ending injuries, the Broncos running attack would have kept opposing teams offenses on the sidelines and kept Denver's porous defense on the sidelines as much as possible as well.

The lack of a consistent running attack due to season ending injuries to 7 RB's was key as to why Denver's season ended the way it did and not so much the Defense...although the D was horrific. Let's be honest, Shanny and Cutler had to end the season down the stretch with cast-off RB's of the caliber of Tatum Bell and Selvin Young......hell I wouldn't even want McDaneil's to endure a season with playoff hopes and a divisional title on the line with those two scrubs!!!!

Simply put......Bowlen pulled the trigger prematurely by firing Shanhan plain and simple. So while I'm enduring a possible 4 win season as a fan this year, I'll be thinking about what this team could have accomplished in 2009 had Shanny not be fired, Cutler traded, and a healthy stable of RB's.

Right. And given that history and their current coaching staff, what makes anyone think the Bears will be any different with Quitler?

Yea, I just honestly haven't had that many opportunities to see him play. I've probably seen Grossman play more, and he was so up and down, it's hard to know how good he really was.

I think it's also tough to judge anything using the Bears offense. Though, if you listen to the interview, he talks about the bears being a power team and this new offense being more likened to what he had success running in school.

His arm is stronger than Jake's, though he's not as mobile. He runs a few bootlegs fairly well in that tribute video, though. I don't get the idea that he's a statute or anything.

As we saw with Shanahan/Plummer, some coaches can work magic with certain QBs. Not sure why, but I just have a feeling McDaniels' attention to detail and work regimen might turn Orton into a viable QB.

Hmmm... that's inaccurate.

I was at a bar with him. He really said, "When life gives you lemons, comb the seeds out of your neckbeard when you're done."

I was lucky enough to be at that game what an ass kicking! I think KO threw 4 or 5 TDs IIRC.

Ugh, I'm so jealous. I only make the trip out there once a year.

Success?

Maybe in the regular season.

Seems to me that Rexasaurus has led you to more playoff wins than Orton has (none).

what's funny is now the bears have a QB who can't even win the games to get in the playoffs, let alone a playoff gameLOL

Quite a number of Orton well-wishers out there in Bears land, for what it's worth. I've always felt you can get a fairly good tell on a player from his former team's fans. (i.e. We hated to see Sharpe go, but weren't so broken up about Griese leaving, etc.)

Look at how many TD passes he threw from the 30 yard line in(with zip), the guy gets very accurate close to the promise land. I can not say that about cutler, he seemed to freeze up a lot when the field got tight. I just hope that Orton keeps that accuracy and "ice in the vains" mentality around the zone, because we haven't seen that in a while.:thumbsup:

I think it is amusing that everyone says....Kyle Orton just won games for the Bears, he just found ways to win.

Orton's career record is 21-12....nice indeed, but that made me curious as to Rex Grossman's career record with the Bears?

A very similar 19-12....and Grossman took them to a Super Bowl.

You are missing the point. Can't win games and make the playoffs when your RB's all suffered season ending injuries. Tatum Bell and Selvin Young don't scare any defenses into playing cheating the pass. No QB in the league can lead their team to the playoffs w/o a decent defense and running attack.

wasn't that the season where Orton led them most of the regular season and clinched them a playoff spot only for the team to **** him over, because Grossman was healed from injury.
