Default Is Orton really 6-4 225?

According to nfl.com
http://www.nfl.com/players/kyleorton...e?id=ORT716150

Are my eyes deceiving me? He looks smaller than that out there. I guess im used to Cutler, but Jay's only a few pounds more, and i just looked it up an inch shorter too 6'3". Well come to think of it when you look at Orton next to Mcdaniels i'd bet 6'4 is right.

Anyone know how tall Mcdaniels is off hand? What is it with our Broncos and short coaches recently?...shanny. lol

yeah that is right

He makes Josh look tiny

Some qbs dont look that big on tv, but when you get up next to them you see they are pretty big

I went to the Broncos TC one time this year and saw him out there

Another guy who looks a little different in person is Alphonso Smith
That guy is built like a tank

Orton doesn't have the classic "Elway" build seen in Cutler.

Love the condom balloons!

In an interview someone asked McDaniels about his playing career, and he said something along the lines of, "At 5-8 I didn't have a future as a QB."

Orton is actually a pretty big dude.

I'm guessing it's not a coincidence that this gets posted after our game against the Raiders. Any QB is going to look small after staring at Jamarcus Russell on screen for 3 hrs.

Brees is barely over 6'0. Listed heights and weights are usually a bit hyped. What is Marshall listed at 6'4? I think he is more like 6'5 I'm 6'2 210 and he's alot bigger than me.

This doesn't get enough play. Everyone points out the height...but the dude is built solidly for his size.
