Default ON Topic: Fun Game

Since we all now know that Orton is:

"Smart"
"Great playing in a spread"
"Very accurate"
"Has surprising arm strength"

Here's a great game!

Using the search function or just a bad ass memory, try to find a positive post about Kyle Orton from any Orangemane member from his pre-Bronco days. Simply: any post that's older than 3 months ago.

Looking forward to reading the results.

Well about the arm strength part, I dont understand why some criticize his arm strength, because that isnt a weakness of his.

Not that arm strength matters THAT much, but anyone who thinks he has a weak arm has never seen him play.

or how about this.....go on a Patriots board and look up words like:

"Napoleon complex"
"retarded"
"self absorbed"
"maniac"

as they relate to Josh McDaniels


Rev, we could do this all day....I've got time

Dolphins, you say Pennington is garbage, is that why he has a 93.7 QB rating this year?
Bills, Trent Edwards was playing very well in his 2nd year before getting hurt. They don't need a QB
Jaguars do not need a QB, Garrard is still a decent QB and young.
Bucs, I think you finally found a team needing a QB.
Jets, possible, although they do have some young QB's on their roster in Clemens and Ainge.
Vikings, I think Jackson could be a decent QB if given time.
Rams, Bulger is still a decent QB. OL is awful there.
49ers could use help almost everywhere
Lions same
Chiefs, Thigpen just might turn out to be a decent QB.

With all that said, Stafford is still a better QB than Tebow. Stafford could play right now, Tebow is a developmental project.
Bradford isn't coming out either.
"Bears don't need a QB, Kyle Orton is perfectly fine for them." Eh, pretty positive.

Now Orton is having a great year and Anderson is on the bench. I give Orton props for sticking out the REXMAN years.

This is a pretty eye-opening game, really.

I mean, who would have thought that fans of one team wouldn't spend their days praising QBs from another?

Even more stunning, who would have thought fans of the Broncos to support their own players and coaches, to some extent.

Has anyone alerted the Denver Post to this turn of events? Clearly, page-one news.

I don't see how any of those relate to something I've said...? Substitute "AIDs" or "cobra" in, and you've got an applicable argument.

Pretty good. Hoping we can find some more solid evidence of his recently annointed football smarts, accuracy, etc.

Participate or gtfo, imo. You're currently bringing nothing to the table and I'd rather this didn't devolve into one of your little shennanigans (O/U on Supertroopers clip, 20 posts).

"Hey Farva, whats that restaurant we used to go to? The one with the **** on the walls?"

"You mean 'Shenanigans?'"


Sorry if I got the quote wrong...but I wanted to jump on this......I got beat on a Dumb and Dumber quote while looking up a pic last week

Really, so this thread is on the up and up, right? No shenanigans on your part?
Just trying to help fellow Broncos fans enjoy being fans, huh?

Wow. Too smart for us, buddy! No one can see you working...

Who else thinks the reverend is acting like a little sissy girl in a toy store who isn't getting what she wants and is throwing a little temper tantrum.

Frankly, I'm suprised we got as many as we have... why would a Bronco message board be talking about a QB towards the middle of the pack, in a different division, in a different conference, who is in his second year of starting, with a gap in between.

Because everyone gets talked about here, sooner or later, especially if a player would upgrade the football team.

Point being, Kyle Orton was a nobody in Chi-town, and has a chance to be somebody in D-town.

Matt Cassel was a nobody at USC, McDaniels helped become quite known

Orton was having a good year before he got hurt, so he wasnt quite a nobody
