Orton's FOURTH QUARTER STATS this season:
Completion Percentage: 73.9
Passing yaards: 362
TD-INT: 2-0
Passer Rating: 144.7

Look, he may not be an all world QB but when your QB is playing like this in the fourth quarter of games, you are going to win A LOT of ball games folks. A LOT.

4 games, 4 fourth quarters and those my friends, are respectable numbers for ANY QB in the league. (Stats received from ESPN).

that is very impressive.

Agree completely. Still not sold on him but he is definitely improving and plays his best at the end of the game.

If you put those numbers on Peyton Manning or Jay Cutler then everybody gets excited. I don't know why everybody hates orton so much. I think maybe because he plays awkward? The guy is a winner, nuff said.

Wow. That's pretty impressive.

Good stuff. Its refreshing to have a qb that steps his game up in crunch time.

Impressive? **** that's the best 4th quarter QB rating in the league.

Orton #1 in the 4th quarter, when it matters most!

i am loving Orton. i liked him as a leader and teammate more after the preseason than i ever liked Jay in that role. and the fact that when it is crunch time and he is needed to be at his best, and he is playing lights out only makes the guy better.

if by the midway point of the season we are 6-2 or better and he is still performing well, than i say we get started on an extension for him.

Wow, I know the O has looked better in the 4th Q of every game but that is impressive.
