he should stay the starter, we should take some more EFFING chances down field and not be so completely predictable with our offense.

No. I am sick and tired of watching Joe Flacco and Ben Roethlisburger throw TD passes when defenses blitz them, and then seeing Kyle Orton curl up into a ball as soon as he sees a blitz coming.

Yes....Time for Chris Simms... Ortan can't throw the ball more then 15 yrds. McD has completely ruined our running game.

Less retarded question: Should Hamilton remain the starter?

He's been a good soldier for a long time, but it's getting embarrassing

If Hamilton remains left guard, Orton should remain the starter.

dumb thread.

team is 6-2 with nothing but another NFL journeyman in Simms behind Orton.

Where's all the hindsight 20/20 guys that think we should have left Plummer in instead of Cutler.

the omane is a fickle master.

reality is this team is only missing a qb to be competitive on a championship level. we already let that guy walk away, so moving forward, we need to find a guy. neither orton nor simms is that guy.

Ummm, really? Dude, we're 6-2. Yes we've struggled against two very strong defenses, but really? You want chris simms in there?

Do you think just maybe it's because their lines actually picked up the blitz?

What a novel concept.

Bull****. Cutler will never be a championship level QB. Never was, never will be. We need an interior offensive line that can block for once.

Poll options suck.

No he shouldn't be benched, but the last 2 weeks he has been a decent chunk of the problem.

Why do people think if you bash Ortan you miss cutler. Cutler can go straight to hell and I'm glad he's not a bronco anymore but clearly Ortan can't throw the ball 20 yards down the field. Gruden said it during the last drive ..you can't go 12-15 plays ever drive...its impossible...

I'd honestly rather watch Brandstater then Orton. We won't win many more games not stretching the field.

Maybe its because their QB can make a play. Orton can't make something out of nothing. Orton needs to have perfect protection and an open receiver no further than 15 yards down the field in order to look good. If he has any pressure on him he will either be sacked, picked, or the ball will be thrown out of bounds.

When you have 1 yard rushing in the second half against the defending Super Bowl champs, you aren't going to win. We aren't run blocking worth a **** right now. Everyone says we need to throw deep, which we do need to attempt a couple of long passes per game, but that's not the real problem. The biggest problem in the second half tonight is Scheffler, Stokley, and Gaffney were nowhere to be seen. If we are going to throw the short passes, we must throw it over the middle to keep defenses spread out. The key to running a good spread offense is mixing up the targets. If we just throw to Brandon and Eddie, as good as they are, NFL defenses are going to keep us out of the endzone. You'll notice all of our best offensive games have been games where the TEs are involved.
