He's been nothing but professional and people boo him when he makes any mistake and cheer like made when Tebow makes a pedestrian completion. They are chanting his name literally in Miami during practices. Why would he want to re-sign here? Denver fans are very passionate but they can be complete douche bag tards. Fans who hate McDaniels see Orton as a connection to that mistake and unfairly vilify him. I think Orton deserves to go somewhere he isn't hated for things outside his control.
I don't know, I think Timbo is mCd's mistake, we could have used those picks on D but instead mCd traded up to grab Timbo.
I always saw Orton as a guy who is a stop gap. His best year was with a duh bear team that was winning games with the D outscoring his O. When mCd was on his one win streak we were winning close games with good D play.
From day 1 I said Orton had a nice touch on his deep ball but that he couldn't elevate the team maybe with a better OL and Von Doom on the D side we can get Orton a couple more possessions a game and maybe he can get us to his 1st playoff game.
No one was more critical of mCd's short comings than I but I harbor no hate for Orton, I just want him to show me that he is a playoff caliber QB just like I want to see KM prove he can put games away on the ground.
