Default McDaniels shows stubborn, and unwarrented, belief in Orton

McDaniels shows stubborn, and unwarrented, belief in Orton


March 25th, 2010, 8:43 am · Post a Comment · posted by david ramsey


Josh McDaniels has announced Kyle Orton is the Broncos starting quarterback.

“There is no question,” McDaniels said this week.

Actually, coach, there are all kind of questions.

About Orton’s arm strength. About his willingness to stretch and test a defense. About whether he’s talented enough to lead the Broncos – or any NFL team – as a starter.

McDaniels believes in his system, which is a slight variation on the system handed down from above by Patriots coach Bill Belichick.

And the system will lift Orton.

At least that’s what McDaniels believes.

“I’m excited because this is going to be … his second calendar year in our system,” McDaniels said.

Every NFL team should be out there looking for one of the dozen or so men on our planet who can truly excel as an NFL starting quarterback. It’s the toughest task in sports. And it’s the toughest place to remain at the top of the heap.

Orton is not one of those dozen. He wasn’t last season. He won’t be this season.

McDaniels can pretend his wondrous system will convert Orton.

It won’t.

McDaniels should be looking for a player who has the potential to become an elite NFL quarterback.

Orton isn’t that player. Neither is Brady Quinn.

Not bad for 1 year in the system. The only other QB on that list that had less than a year with a team is 21st.

Face it some people have made their minds up about Orton and they wont be changed. EVen if he won a SB it'd be in spite of him to a few.

Come on! Finding an article from a random blogger, doesnt use spell check and doesnt give much info on anything but his thought from the top of his head doesnt deserve even to be on the Mane (where probably someone here wrote it). Not good Rob!

Kyle Orton gets a lot of hate for a QB that threw for 3,800, over 60 percent completion percentage and a decent TD/int ratio. I'm not saying he's amazing, but people speak of him like he's Spergon Wynn

ok Einstein, who is going to give us their Top 10 QB? I see the last one was well past Orton on that list. Give it a rest.

I don't understand why people are so impatient about this. What else is Josh going to say? He'd absolutely lose the entire team if he just made a unilateral decision to replace the team's starter.

And for that matter, people should probably get used to the idea that this is Orton's job to lose probably going all the way into October, unless Quinn is absolutely knocking our socks off in August.

One of the big draws for Favre was that he was already familiar with the system Childress was running in Minn -- it's essentially the same system he ran in GB. Can't really call that "year 1" of a new system. Orton went from Chicago's "what, they allow a forward pass?" offense to McD's "Hey, look -- another WR Screen!" offense. Totally different...

Know where we can get one of those top ten guys? Cause I sure don't. I doubt their teams would be willing to trade.

Actually, I was curious and actually clicked the link -- it's not some random blogger, it's Colorado Springs Gazette sports columnist David Ramsey. Doesn't make the article any better or the opinion any more informed, but he's not totally random...

Pretty much. You can't jerk a starter before his replacement has even thrown a single pass for the team.

And the longer McDaniels can go into season 1 (while still winning) with Orton at the helm the more it will benefit Quinn. Putting Quinn on the field too soon before he gets acclimated in the system is asking for bad results.

Some people would argue that number 2 on that list also in his first year in that system - just saying.
