This is hardly news to anyone with a brain who could, without bias, judge Orton on his talent, rather that what you really "hoped" he would do. He is average, at best. Said it before, and it's true.. he won't change his stripes. He'll sure as hell not carry any game on his shoulders, and we will not win a SB with him under center, unless our defense is say.. #1 in the league.

give me a break. this is the 1st preseason game. the 1st time Orton is going against live competition with this team and offensive system and he is still building relationships with his receivers

this is not the game to judge the guy on. there are also a few good things to build upon. unlike Jay, he didn't get mopey and act like a child because things didn't go his way, he didn't sit alone away from his teammates, he is talking to his coach, he is working to correct the mistakes. i still believe he will be a good QB for us.

You are right he didn't get upset after throwing an interception he just proceeded to choke on his own vomit and threw two more.

Oh please.. he is a supposed frigging Pro, against one the crappiest teams in the NFL. There are plenty of QBs.. even REAL rookies, who didn't choke as bad as Orton.

It has nothing to do with "building a relationship" with anyone. His vision sucks. There was a guy 2 yards off of our own in the endzone, and he DIDN'T SEE HIM. That has nothing to do with our receivers, it's all on Orton.

I had him ranked 32nd out of the starting QBs in a linked ranking poll that someone posted here well before the trade.

I just have never thought he was any good.

One preseason game is just that....one game....but I honestly think he is going to screw up at home, get booed out of Invesco, and his confidence will be shattered.

Maybe I will be proven wrong.

I'm with you on that one. Just a couple days ago I said that he sucked and a few guys tried to run me out the damn thread.

We're doomed!

Poor footwork. Dude is doomed from the start until he gets his footwork set. Dude never got his feet set from the snap. He's gonna have to buckle down and get the basics.

You have to look at this whole thing as a process people. Quit going ape shizzle over Orton having a bad preseason game. Nobody thinks Orton was or is the future of this team. Cutler wanted out so badly he wouldn't even talk with the guy who signs his checks. The team got 2 first round picks and a stop gap QB until Josh either grooms somebody like Brandstater or until we draft a top QB prospect in the draft. When this deal first went down, that's what all the talk was about. Could Orton hold the fort for a year or 2 until we groomed a guy or found ourselves in position to take a top prospect. The smart fans probably realize that we are at the very beginning of a rebuild here. Some things worthwhile take time to build.

I don't know what the future holds but I know Orton is not the long term answer and I don't think McD ever thought or thinks that now also. He simply is trying to work with what he has for now and I fully expect that he has much greater plans down the road to address the QB position.

I am still amazed at the lopping pass that turned into the 3rd INT. He had a little pressure but not enough for that pass, it was NCAA 10 QB sack like.

Thanks to our genius coach's fetish with a midget CB, who the other 31 coaches were obviously too stupid to pick, the Seattle Seahawks should find their franchise QB in next year's draft...

I mean how friggin arrogant can a person be.....

There is good chance we could get very good QB in the 2nd round, the only one potential big time QB we miss with that Seattle trade is Sneed out of Old Miss. The other big names, McCoy and Bradford are very over-hyped because of were they play. I am more concerned that trade puts Denver out of reach of Berry, Mays, Cody or Dunlap.

I thought Orton stunk when I saw him with the Bears, but I'm down with the idea of waiting longer to see what he does here with this system. Even a bum deserves another chance but I have to say though that this was not impressive. I agree with Elsid13 about that last INT...that had Jake Plummer written all over it. Maybe McD can work some magic with this guy, but it wouldn't shock me if Simms was the starter after all. I thought all along he might win the job. What surprised me is that Orton was named the starter so early in camp...like it was pre-designated.

I'm thinking we should watch a lot of Tim Tebow this year.

It's bad enough that our team was hijacked by a young, arrogant, first-time head coach. What's worse is that our team was hijacked by a young, arrogant, first-time coach who has no idea what he is doing.

BTW, Orton does NOT have a strong arm. It's not terribly weak but when coupled with his slow release it just takes too long to get there. It's almost like Plummer all over again.. except Orton can't escape like the Snake could.

Look on the bright side, by the time we get to pick in our own 1st round slot, we will still be picking quite high..
