Default Should we give Orton another week or start Simms?

Was Orton that bad or was the injury still lingering? I dont know but he looked awful today...

He looked bad, but for sheer momentum's sake, no change yet imo.

We should beat the Browns on pure momentum after this.

Neither.

"We" have nothing to do with it. McD will start him next week guaranteed...but I don't see this guy making it through the year without seeing the bench.

Unbelievable! The guy played with a major injury, managed the game well (except for the one sack he took), did not turn the ball over and had numerous passes dropped and drives stopped by penalties. And, we won. Get a clue!

I think if you want to sit down Orton you better sit down the rest of the O because the entire group didn't play that well. Hopefully they can work things out this week in practice because all the 2nd half penalties were sad and kept us from taking control of this game.

Other than taking that sack, what did he do wrong? Should he have run 30 yards downfield and handed the ball to BMarsh? Dude wasn't great, but he was hardly the problem. W/ a bum hand and the first real game w/ the whole playbook (or at least most of it), I think he was fine. The drops hurt.

Dude ... the miracle was just his SECOND TD in a Broncos uniform. 12 quarters with our starting offense, and just 2 TDs including that miracle? Unacceptable. He has no fire, no urgency.

I don't advocate a change now because of the momentum, but we would've won easily today had Chris Simms started.

Only if he could catch his own passes.

Did he drop 7 passes or throw 7 balls that were dropped? Please let me know, cuz I really wanna blame him for the drops.

Id agree if he was a rookie, but hes just continuing what he was doing in Chicago, only difference is it's our burden now.

His finger injury has nothing to do with his receiver selection or his scrambling skills and i will leave it at that.

Kyle Orton is the THIRD best QB on our roster--a performance like he has displayed every time he has suited up as a Bronco will not win against CLE this Sunday. It was refreshing to see McD jump his A$$ after taking that horrendous sack in the 4th qtr costing us a FG attempt that would have put the game away. He is nothing more than a 3rd team QB.......

Nothing new here on Orton. He wasn't great but wasn't bad. I think it's still to early to be calling for his head. I think he needs 4 games under his belt to evaluate how things are going. You can't really count pre-season games because everybody is trying to learn totally new stuff and get used to each other. We're not gonna win the superbowl anyway so why the hurry to bench him? If he's not getting this team in the endzone through his own faults in the next few weeks, I think Josh wouldn't hesitate at all to put Simms in there.


Kinda funny though, what Orton did today is what he did do in Chicago, win ugly. Hahahaha.

Orton played well in the seco d half. Those penalities were BS. Whenever the defense jumps the line and cause the offense to move it's a penaliy on the defense and Hamilton didn't even move. I was disgusted. Take away that crap and we still probably get a fieldgoal. Then the refs were ready to just take 18 seconds off the play clock. The Begals held often and had numerous blocks in the back uncalled. The Boncos beat the bullehit today.

Guys usually don't get benched after 17/28 240 1 TD and no INTS... and a win.

Especially when they did it with a torn up throwing finger.



Again, he may not be the long-term answer, but you people may as well just get over it, for now. He'll be the starter for the conceivable future.

I'm more concerned with how our OL and running game looked than I am with Kyle "Stare Down" Orton.
