Default How bad did Orton want out of Chicago ?

Before I leave out on a trip , it takes me time to get ready , at least 2 -3 hours ...... Orton = flat out hauled ass to the air port ......... no grass grew under that boys feet .. But i cant blame him , coming to Denver and this offense has to be a wet dream .......

I think he did that so he could get in and get working ASAP. I was really impressed with the way he called all his receivers to introduce himself. And he's already in the playbook learning. He takes the attitude that other QB's might out-talent him, but they won't out-work him. He's also likable in the locker room and that will be a welcome change. He's a good guy and his blue-collar work ethic will be a welcome change. I think the team is going to get along better than many here believe and we'll field a decent team this year.

Orton wants to get his freak on in Denver , but still that doesnt change the fact that he was here in less then 24 hours ....... I wouldnt be shocked to learn as soon as Da bears contacted Denver orton was on a plane

He had to pass a physical before the trade could become official.

It's not like he packed everything up in a U-Haul and drove through the night to get here.

never thought i'd be excited to see orton as our QB, but the guys play for him. Similar to Plummer, the entire team gives it their all when he's on the field, but he won't make the mistakes, i seriously think the team will play better next year on O.

I have no idea what that plans are for him, but I'm excited to have him as a Bronco, even if it's just in a back-up role.

We're going to have a quality back-up this year, which will be a welcome change. I'm also hoping we draft a kid to develop in the system. (Just not too early.)

Those are two things we basically just stopped doing in the second half of the Shanahan era.

I dont know if Orton wanted to blast out of there but knowing he was coming to Denver im sure he was quite happy. I fully expect him to work even harder than he already does as this will give him an opportunity to work with a offense he didnt have in Chi-town.

spider, u have to remember Orton was a starter last season. Unless he wants to be watching Sims, i would hurry my butt too and learn the system and get a rythm with the receivers.

heads up ? orton is familiar with this new offense . now if he was coming into a walsh or Shanahan WCO then you could make a point , but it still doesnt explain why orton didnt wait until the next day

I wouldn't totally count Simms out of the competition. McDaniels said there will be an open shot at the starting gig.

That's good stuff. Bring in a rookie to get in the mix, and let's get this system rolling.

No way. No one wants that. You're going to make a guy one of the highest paid in the league when he's not that much different than the six guys taken after him - and may be even worse.

The top five picks suck.

i agree. i wasn't expecting him to be in Denver until the weekend and not at the facilities until Monday morning, and then he was there less than 24 hours after the trade was announced

agreed, but i would love to trade back from 12 if they want an OT to protect Stafford or Sanchez, and pick up 20 and 33. i really like the top pick of the 2nd round. you get your pick of all the 1st round talent that slipped a little and all the best remaining guys in the 2nd, it is a great place to draft

Only if we were able to trade it. Do you realize how much money the #1 pick costs? It would hurt us more than help us with all the holes we have to fill, especially since no pick is a guaranteed success.

Definitely .... best young O-Line in the league, this year maybe the best O-Line period.

Plus best young pair of WRs, best young receiving TE, and a large stable of RBs to choose from.

What's not to love?

I hope Orton wins the job. He's proven himself to be a winner even if it's in the role of game manager. I also would like for Clady to be on the QBs blindside rather than Harris.

Well said, I would like to see a late round rookie brought into the mix. Rhett Bomar has all the physical tools and had he not taken money from the car dealership, he would of been the starter at OU for 4 years. He was heads above Bradford as a freshman. We could afford to have a guy like that hold the clipboard for a few years.

there's dipute to that. the fact that we probably won't get enough in return is a problem, also the fact that McDop**** said he could envision Scheff in the Ben Watson role of his offense.

if he is traded it will be draft day
