Default Well, can we consider Orton done?

About the only positive I can take from this game is that he won't be our QB next year.

Sure he will. Who are we going to replace him with?

He's the best thing we've got going and not even close to our biggest problem.

What? You want to start Simms again? He's the best thing we have at QB. Sure I'd love a new stud QB but I don't think there's one out there to get.

Maybe McDaniels will disagree but I doubt it.

Sorry. He'll be here next year.

Hopefully we'll fix the big problem along the lines instead of forcing a pick on a QB that will blow up in our faces.

Did Orton give up 300 yards rushing to the Chefs?

Orton will most definitely be our starter next year.

agreed ...... he's not a bad QB but just an average QB. If were gonna go for the future then lets do it already. I saw the writing on the wall when the game was basicly gone with 6 min left and he was still throwing 3 yard in's.

He's terrible so I fully expect him to be signed long term.

105 yards on 2 pick 6's, but no, he didn't give up 300 yards... what a joke.

Was Orton the sole responsibility for this meltdown, no. Was he a major part of it, absolutely.


Unfortunately you a probably right though. Orton may be the QB next year because we have no other options.

Orton isn't going anywhere. We aren't going to start a rookie next year and there's no FA QB to go after.

Orton is a decent QB at best, but the two biggest problems in the team right now are the front 7 and running game. Until that's fixed it won't matter who the QB is, the team will be an epic fail.

There aren't any replacements on the FA market. I can't think of anyone they could trade for either, so that leaves us with Orton or a rookie probably.

I don't know if they'd give him a long term deal, but I expect he'll be back for another year anyway ... even if they draft a QB high.

If McDaniels is smart he'll draft a QB high and hope that Bowlen lets him stick around a while to develop him. I promise you this much, Pat Bowlen is under the gun right now with pressure to fire McD. He won't fire him, but he has a ton of pressure right now. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see McD lose a bit of control over personnel at this point. I've still got a few connections to Dove Valley. This much is absolutely certain, Orton is not viewed as the "answer" by most inside of Broncos HQ. He has one strong ally at this point. It could very well come down to a power struggle, we'll know soon enough who has the clout in Dove Valley. If Orton is our QB next year it's b/c McD is calling ALL THE SHOTS. If he is not, there is hope that somebody has stepped in and forced a decision on McD. The funny thing is, it's the best bet for McD to stick in Denver for a while longer.

Orton is a serviceable QB for a rebuilding team. There's no doubt that we will look for opportunities to upgrade, but in the draft, the lines will come first.

Most people had this team pegged for 3-5 wins. We got 8, it was a frustrating way to go about it. We were probably lucky to go 6-0 and we were probably unlucky to finish 2-8. But I didn't think 8-8 was possible going in to this season.

Home losses to Chiefs and Raiders is ****in' humiliating though.

I think you make some calls and see what you can come up with. If there's nothing you can do to upgrade, then:

You keep Orton
Draft a stud QB to develop
Replace Simms with somebody who can challenge Orton

We might even trade BM for a 1 and a 3, then use that 1 with our 1 to trade up for Clausen. I hope not...but McDaniels just might not have another choice.

Look, anytime you throw 2 pick 6's in a game...alot of fault falls on your QB. That's like getting kicked in the nuts twice...you can struggle to recover from the first blow...but if they hit those nuggies again...lights out!

The Broncos need a legit NFL starting QB. Orton aint it.

Orton is not a game changer.

Yeah sure hoss. No owner in the league would be under any pressure whatsoever to fire a first year coach.
