Backup is where he's always belonged.

Good for him.

At first I chuckle, but then I realize that he's an above average backup. You can certainly do far worse.

That sound you just heard was fireworks going off at all the local Dallas area strip clubs.

One of the better back ups in the league. Good for him.

Depends on his attitude, imo. If he understands and buys into his role of preparing each week as if he was going to start while knowing he'll most likely not play, he's a good backup option.

"Kyle Orton@KingNeckbeard Some dude told me that Dallas has a ton of slutty cougar skanks with fake titties.... So of course I'm visiting the Cowboys. #priorities

Orton is the Tom Brady of Career Backups. He should have a good time chugging Jack in TX.

With the way Romo gets hurt, this is a good opportunity for Orton. I'd love for him to monkey wrench Jerra Jone's evil empire.

Can't believe we ever gave this guy starter money or that anyone ever thought he was more then a back-up

To be fair, we really didn't pay him starter money the majority of the time he was here. He made around $2.5 mil for each of 2009 and 2010 and then collected $6 mil from us last year. That's nothing for a starting QB.

it's more than he's worth because he's not a starting QB, he's a very good back up QB.

If he was a starting QB you'd think kc would have kept him around...

Srsly, while I am very happy he is not starting for us anymore, I have always felt he got a raw deal from the fans from the get go.

He was hated when he got here because he wasn't Cutler, and then hated because he wasn't Tebow. He just couldn't win(pun intended), and then mercifully let go.

Anyway, I think he gets a better shake at things w/ the Cowboys. The fans there are a Romo int. away from revolt, and will be calling for Orton...until of course, he throws his own pick six.

Well good for the Cowboys and good for Orton.. I believe the Cowboys were one of the teams trying to pick up Orton off of waivers when the Broncos cut him.

Good move for the Cowboys. They now have two Qbs incapable of winning an important game.
