Default Orton: We left 150-200 yards on field

http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_13349259


Glove or no glove, miracle ending or no miracle ending, Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton expects a better offensive performance Sunday against the visiting Cleveland Browns.

In making his franchise debut in the season opener at Cincinnati, Orton completed 17-of-28 passes for 243 yards. The team finished with 302 total yards, but 87 of that came on Orton's final snap from center a fluke, game-winning touchdown reception by receiver Brandon Stokely.

"I think we easily left 150-200 yards of offense on the field," Orton said today in his weekly news conference. "Certainly, you can't make a habit of that. But it was the first week, saw some different things, (but if) we make some corrections we'll be ready to go (Sunday)."

Orton continues to practice with the glove on his throwing hand. The glove helps protect the stitched wound on his index finger, caused by a dislocated knuckle on Aug. 30.

"We'll have to go through practice week to see how it goes," Orton said of the glove. "I played with it last week, so if I have to (wear it again), it shouldn't be that big of a deal anyways."

Asked if there are any positives to wearing the glove, he said: "Not really. It's just not what I've done for my entire life. So I'd rather play without it."

Orton said his main focus against Cleveland is winning time of possession and avoid facing second-and-long situations. The Bengals controlled the ball for nearly 7 minutes longer than the Broncos, and Denver rarely gained decent yardage on first down.

"In the NFL if you give the other team more possessions than you, it's tough to win," he said. "It's a fact It certainly has to be a priority."

He added: "Everybody hopes we make a lot of progress this week, get better. I think we're in the same boat as every team in the league, and that's a race, this week, to see who can make the most improvement."

All laudable goals, but not committing turnovers has got to be at the top of the list.

Why can't he just wear a finger rubber? Those who have worked in a kitchen will know what I am talking about. It's just like it sounds and you wear it when you need to cover a finger wound.

Seems like it would just be less of an impact than the Michael Jackson glove.

Well considering they didn't have a turnover in teh Cincy game you can't really improve on that.

I agree with this. SoCal was right, the D needed at least one long sustained drive in the 1st half in order to finish strong.

I think the Browns have enough of their own troubles, Broncos should win this easier.

I would like to save the luck for later in the year, last year we caught a couple breaks in the SD game only to not find one the last quarter of the year.

Umm...let's examine that:

Quote:
"I think we easily left 150-200 yards of offense on the field," Orton said today in his weekly news conference. "Certainly, you can't make a habit of that. But it was the first week, saw some different things, (but if) we make some corrections we'll be ready to go (Sunday)."
He used we twice here, speaking about the entire offense. Fairly accurate as the offensive line looked rusty, the QB looked rusty, and the WRs looked rusty and the RBs outside of Buck didn't perform well. We is fine in this sense.

Quote:
"We'll have to go through practice week to see how it goes," Orton said of the glove. "I played with it last week, so if I have to (wear it again), it shouldn't be that big of a deal anyways."
IN this case, he could ahve said "I'll have to go through practice..." instead of "We'll" but he will be going through practice with his teammates and getting into a groove with his teammates so, either is fine here.

Quote:
"Everybody hopes we make a lot of progress this week, get better. I think we're in the same boat as every team in the league, and that's a race, this week, to see who can make the most improvement."
Here he uses the possessive we twice, speaking about first the offense, then the entire team.

No, I think he used "we" in the correct sense in every sentence. He wasn't the only one stinking it up offensively.

Really? Was he dropping his own passes? Looked to me like other people were.

Then again, he only had a 100 QB rating. I can see how you'd come up with that.




Everyone could improve, offensively. He's right. Dropped passes killed us. The running game struggled. Penalties killed us.


But, some people don't have the capacity to see beyond the quarterback position.

I wonder if Orton likes pea's over corn and what kind of candy he is giving out at Halloween.

I don't quite know how these things work, but can we bank those yards for another game, then withdraw them?

I'm looking at the schedule and somewhere between the Chargers, Ravens, Steelers, and Patriots we could really use those 200 yards...

A 25 % 3rd down conversion rate is awful and led to Cincy having too many possessions and a 7 minute advantage in T.O.P.--his 3rd down sack late in the 4th might as well have been a TO....and McD knew it and proceeded to rip him a new one.......I hope that Orton can provide the direction that our offense needs this Sunday--so far in both the pre-season and thru 1 regular season game--he has looked no better than a backup QB........

What he said was very similar to how I felt about the game. I think they left points as well as yards on the table though. It also would have been nice if he had made a comment about how well the D played.

Yes and 75% of those failed 3rd conversions are on the receivers and then penalties on teh O-line.

But never mind the facts. Don't let those get in the way of your Bronco bashing.
