Default Orton already at work at Dove Valley

Orton already at work at Dove Valley
By Mike Klis
The Denver Post

Go ahead, Broncoland. Talk from the morning coffee to soothing nightcap about the physical talent differences between Jay Cutler and Kyle Orton.

Whatever those opinions, say this for Orton: At least he's already made it inside the building.

The Broncos' newly acquired quarterback after he was swapped Thursday along with a cache' of draft picks from the Chicago Bears in exchange for the disgruntled Cutler, Orton flew in from Chicago this morning and — shortly after Jack Cutler walked into the team's headquarters to turn his son's playbook at the reception desk — got busy at Dove Valley. Orton passed his physical (his right ankle injury from last season was examined thoroughly), talked with his two new receivers, Brandon Marshall and Eddie Royal, and spent a few hours in meetings with head coach Josh McDaniels and the rest of the offensive staff.

No more drama about when the quarterback will show up. He's here. And early signs suggest Orton has no problem with his new head coach.

"I couldn't wait to get out here and get to know the guys first and foremost," Orton said in his first interview since the trade. "And then dive headfirst into learning a new system."

Dressed casually and looking younger than on TV thanks to shaving away his scruffy, game-day appearance, Orton, 26, was driving from his home in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park to the local grocery store Thursday afternoon when he received a call informing him he needed to see coach Lovie Smith at Halas Hall ASAP.

"No, I wasn't expecting it," Orton said. "I don't really pay attention to speculation. I'm not a guy who talks to may agent every day, either."

Orton is aware Chicago is excited about Cutler while Broncoland is uncertain about life without Cutler. How will Orton handle following not only Cutler, but the Cutler saga?

"I've taken the same approach my entire and that is, my job description is to win football games," he said. "And I've done a pretty good job of that and I plan to keep that up. I'm a hard worker. I'm not flashy by any means but my job is to play football and win and I plan to do that."

Orton was 21-12 as a starter with the Bears, including a 15-2 record at home. Cutler was 17-20 for the Broncos, 10-9 at home. Cutler was to hold his first news conference in Chicago today at 4 p.m. MST.

He may not be the second coming, but I like his attitude. We'll be fine. Team first. Pouty, drunk, diabetic prima donnas need not apply.

If he doesn't succeed it won't be because of lack of character or effort.

Orton will be a leader for this team, no doubt about it.

That's impressive. One thing about Joe Tiller's Purdue quarterbacks (Brees & Orton), is they are hard workers, they are total team players, and they keep their mouths shut. Ok that's three things. Not a contrast with Jay, just an observation that Tiller raises good kids.

That's awesome. 24 hours after being traded, he's already at work. That's just badass.

I want to buy him a jack and coke.

Then you want to catch him before 4 pm, he switches to bourbon on the rocks after 4.

Did he grow arms or does he still have those shoestring noodles hanging out of his shirt sleeves?

Tears of joy, maybe. Remember, he almost played for CU - until Tiller got his hands on him.

He should just not report and ask for a new deal because of his record. I know thats what Cutler would have done.
