McDaniels is going to give Orton plenty of chances to keep the starting job, but I like that Orton has Brandstater breathing down his neck...

He looked good last night, but was absolutely laughable in the Seahawks game.

The fact that we are even debating this is enough to make me cry by the way.

this thread doesn't surprise me, and not because Brandstater had a good game, but because...........well, you know.

Yeah, a rookie QB who was absolutely horrible in his first game comes out and has a good to decent 2nd game and he should be starting. Okay, so what if next game he comes out and looks like he did the first game, then what?

Yeah, shut the F up already.

How so? The line he played behind ab-so-***ing-lute-ly sucked. Everyone saw what he can do behind a decent line last night.

As President of the Tom B for Starting QB club...Simms is still my first choice to take the snaps this season, then Orton, then it's Bradenstater. Again I don't like the idea of starting a rookie QB.

Well it's Orton not Unitas he's up against so it's really not that far fetched.

Dude hes starting week 4 Preseason and I will not be suprised if he's our main option going into Cinci - high ankle sprains aren't always quick healing and the mystery behind Orton's finger leads one to wonder if he'll be ready. Either way, Brandstater can maybe show us a little more Thursday night, but I love the zip he can get on the ball and he seems to have decent pocket presence. he just needs some accuracy.

But can you really rely on Simms to stay healthy? He makes Boss Bailey look like Cal Ripken.

I don't think people really want to see Brandstater starting. It is more of a general feeling that Orton isn't throwing the ball more than 10 yards down the field and last night Brandstater looked good in the pocket and had a better arm.

So, Brandstater showed some potential while we keep worrying about Orton. I do think Brandstater has a good chance to be a starting QB for us and I hope he doesn't need to start this season. I also hope that Orton or Sims play well enough to allow us not to draft a QB next year.

Peyton Manning had an absolutely horrible first SEASON. They should have given up on him too. Terrible idea to keep him around.

He did well in driving the team down the field. He made two mistakes with the interception play and the handoff. He moves around very well in the pocket and led the team down the field a couple times to put points on the board.

8/12 110 yards.
9.2 Yards per pass
0 Sacks
1 interception.
2 scoring drives.

Like I said, I am not advocating starting this guy right away.

The most popular man in Denver in the pre-Elway days (not counting the Craig Morton and Charlie Johnson stints) was the 2nd string quarterback. Things haven't changed. Brandstater showed some signs last night that he could have a future here, but in no way is he ready to be an NFL starter this season. If Orton bombs I'd want to see what a healthy Simms could do first (Simms did lead Tampa to the playoffs when he had a spleen)

Peyton Manning was a 1st round draft choice and was the #1 overall pick making a bazillion dollars. You don't sit those guys down. He was drafted to be the starting QB right away. Tom was drafted in what, the 6th or 7th round, to be "groomed" for awhile.

Big difference. If you can't see that then that's on you.

Yeah, that will make the locker room gel really nicely won't it. Hey, let's just yank Orton before the regular season even starts for a rookie QB how made a few nice throws in one game, who absolutely looked shell shocked in his first game and stank up the joint, and obviously doesn't know the system well enough that in practice he's not even beating out Simms for the 2nd string QB, let alone Orton as the starter. You guys are not in practice seeing all the mistakes and all the other little stuff that coaches see so go ahead and play pretend coach and call for Tom as the starter. This place sometimes makes me laugh, or cry..........lol.
