I don't have any tickets but I might cancel my NFL Sunday Ticket next season. I wish to God I hadn't renewed it this year and just went to a Sports Bar we have here instead. With Orton at QB we're in for another long, boring and painfully ugly season if he's allowed to start many more games.

Quinn is ****. So Tebow, or someone who is not on the team. Since Tebow is on the team now, he seems like the obvious pick and what I chose.

This! I can't believe i called and hassled DTV for my Sunday Ticket to watch Borton start at QB! How bad does he have to play before they sit his b**** ass on the bench!

I'm not convinced Tebow is the answer. I am convinced Orton is not.

Palmer for the next several years while Tim learns on the bench.
I am not an expert at watching football, I don't know how plays develop like most Maners. I do know watching Orton is painful. I don't know why, maybe its his demeanor, or the stupid look on his face after he fails repeatedly on 3rd down. Whatever it is, the guy is just like one poster said, good enough to start, but will never win anything.

Kinda slanted poll, but I'll take Tebow because I want to see what he can do starting for two straight years here.

This! With Tebow, we have hope. Whether it works out or not, at least we have some optimism. With Orton, there is no hope. Not in the present, not in the future.

I agree with Kaylore. Not sure about Tebow's ability. I am sure about Orton's inability.

IMO we need to know what we have in Tebow before the season ends. I think in order to accomplish that he needs at least 10 starts this year. Right now I would take benching Orton in favor of a full time "Wild Horse" package, so I don't care if Quinn gets a few starts before Tebow. Quinn's going to prove inept quickly.

That's how it's intended. If you you aren't okay with another option then how can you be anything but Tebow or bust? I'm not interested in which you want more. I want to know if people would be open to another scenario besides Tebow. In the ESPN thread there were claims being made that the consensus around here is that anyone but Orton would be okay... that's what I am trying to gauge. So far, it doesn't appear that that is the concensus at all.

You're trying to group everyone who wants to see Tebow play into a group of people who will be pissed off and sell all their stuff if it doesn't happen.

I'm fine regardless. I just want someone who can play football at the QB spot. I'd like that to be Tebow, or at the very least, him given a chance to see what he can do for more than a few gimic plays or a few games starting.

Anybody but Bore-ton and Quinn.

Everyone KNOWS they suck.

Sections of increasingly empty seats and boos as the season goes on will confirm it.

Teboz may sink or swim, but there's no way to tell for sure if he's on the bench.

I would be okay bringing in Palmer or Garrard, both of whom are better options than Kyle Orton.

I'd be okay even with Quinn to see what he's got, though I'm not very optimistic.

I'm more than okay with Tebow starting because I've already seem him outperform Orton in games.

tl;dr
Any QB is an upgrade over Orton.
