Default Broncos won't commit to Orton beyond 2010

Broncos won't commit to Orton beyond 2010


Posted Feb. 19, 2010 @ 10:38 a.m.
By Dan Parr


The Broncos struck down reports that they are one of a few teams interested in trading for Eagles QB Donovan McNabb, but that doesn't mean they are committed to Kyle Orton as their long-term answer at quarterback, we hear. McNabb, who has played his entire career in the West Coast offense, would have to adjust to playing in a entirely different system run by head coach Josh McDaniels, and the Broncos would have to give up valuable draft picks to acquire him. He doesn't appear to be a good fit for Denver. Orton, after a strong start last season, declined down the stretch and there are questions about how long McDaniels will stick with him before he pursues a new signalcaller. Orton, who still had a solid showing overall in 2009 — he had a TD-INT ratio of 21-12 — will become a restricted free agent March 5, but the Broncos are expected to issue him a one-year tender.

I'm starting to get the feeling that all of the Broncos' RFAs are going to get the high tender.

Unless there's some real breakthrough in the VERY near future with the CBA, or Bowlen has some inside info that allows him to conclude that a lockout will definitely not happen in 2011, then it would be in the organization's best interest to do just that.

Bingo. It's the smart move for the Broncos.

Every team is going to be looking for one year deals with players. 2011 is a huge paper-weight on the desk of personel people and agents.

I wonder what happens with Orton if we break into the playoffs next year with him.

We draft a QB in the 1st round, that is what we did last time we made it to the playoffs with an average but winning QB.

Our defense had more to do with us going to the AFC championship game that year then Plummer. Shanahan had to dumb down the entire playbook just to keep Plummer from making to many mistakes. Champs int against NE is just one example of our defense making the differance that year.

Nothing. Once the 2010 season ends (playoffs,Super Bowl, Pro Bowl) the Owners will lockout the players and a freeze will be put on NFL business. No Free agents,Draft.... nothing.

We will have screwed up our chances of a good pick in the 2011 draft.

Plummer had a better arm than Orton and was WAAAAAAAYYY more mobile. He also had a great TD/Int ratio in 2005. So yes, he did actually help get us to the AFC championship game.

Don't know if I agree that he had a better arm than Orton. In fact, I think that's where the two quarterbacks are most comparable.

As far as mobility, it's no comparison. But Plummer also had trouble on deeper throws, and was a true scattershot with his passing.

Much props to the organization if true. Do NOT give him anything long term. He's a fine stopgap, but nothing more.

Better arm maybe but just as bad as orton when it came to accuracy. As I pointed out his TD/INT ratio was only a result of shanahan dumbing down the playbook.

Well...we may make the playoffs....that's not the same thing as Orton taking us to the playoffs. Each player should be judged on their OWN performance. Jay Barker was the QB on the 1992 national champions. Jay Barker was garbage. Everyone is evaluated on their own merits.

That dumbed down offense still put up around 4 or 5 more ppg than any offense we've had since.

Kyle Orton had better stats than Jay Cutler this year. If that is your creed, that players should be judged on their OWN performance why do you still pine for Jay?
