Default The case for Kyle Orton as an upgrade

Warning this thread is about the Broncos. This is an interesting article and brings up some valid points, some my find it a good read and some may not. I know someone will say "nothing here that hasn't been said before, so if that's the case just sit back and let your pups suck and read about sausages and favorite rock bands.

No, not going to the negative side yet! I'm on the bandwagon with all the new changes, unless McDaniels trades Hillis. If that happens I will move to the dark side.

I too think that Orton will do quite well here.

Now, on to something more important. Who teaches these people to write? This is a lede?

Poorly written article, but some good material.

The second sentence is even worse!

"When the second-biggest name in Broncos history walked away from the sidelines after an abysmal home stretch that saw the franchise drown in the wake of a possible playoff birth, Pat Bowlen turned to the Patriots and happily plucked their freshest face."

Huh?

"But for the Broncos, the saga was more grueling, more excruciating, and so scintillatingly drawn out. Watching McDaniels and Jay Cutler slowly dig the trench between them was a tedious task."

Ack.

This is a quarterback who put up 31 touchdowns against only five interceptions in a collegiate offense that more closely resembles what McDaniels will do than any other offense in the league.

Hey, no fair quoting sentences that actually make sense! But I'll cover for you:

"There is a back to each end zone that provides more intelligent quarterbacks with a safe haven for the ball when the receivers are hidden behind defenders."

Um.... the correct word here would be "berth"; not "birth"....

Surely you're not suggesting that Jay Cutler was the only player on our roster who underachieved during the month of December when a single win would have clinched a playoff berth? My own take is that there were at least 10 defensive players who should be placed ahead of Cutler in the culpability-for-the-collapse line.

Furthermore, I'd also challenge the assertion that Cutler was the "second-biggest name in Broncos history".... I think I'd place TD, Shannon, Rod, Steve Atwater, Randy Gradishar, and Floyd Little (just to name a few off the top of my head) above him. While Jay had the potential to maybe develop to where he might have justified that characterization, it simply didn't happen and the characterization therefore is bogus. IMHO.
