Default Rumor: We're gonna get rid of Orton, and soon.

This comes from one of my buddies who knows some people in the new FO.

Apparently within a month.

It would make sense, but scare the hell out of me. Our only proven starter?

My friend isn't a Broncos fan, so he didn't really care. I, as all Broncos fans do, started panicking. He's been right on minor stuff before. I guess they're talking about Orton like he's already gone.

We can't keep 4 QB's. Tim needs reps, too.

This would be a mistake. A terrible mistake. I hope your friend is terribly mistaken. In fact, I hope your firend recants and says this is a late April Fools' joke. Some "friends" are like that. Particularly those who do not swear allegiance to the Broncos.....

I think with Orton, the Broncso could have a very good year. I refuse to hear this.

I heard waiting for the lightrail here in Houston that they are looking to shop Andre Johnson because of the injury concerns and they want to get a pick, another WR and possibly a defensive back in the deal for him.
Heard Denver was one team rumoured to be inquiring, possibly our 1st next year, Royal and Hill for Johnson?

If Quinn looks really good in preseason and, basically, beats out Orton, I could see this happening. But not real soon - too risky. Plus, we may be able to get more for Orton if other team's QB's struggle in preseason or get injured.

Wonder what his trade value is...

Depends on what they think of Quinn I guess. If they feel he can start and at least equal what Orton gave us last year, it would make sense to move Kyle on now because clearly we arent going to be giving him a long term deal.

Has Kyle actually said anything publicly since we drafted Tebow?

In the last two years, I've learned not to discount anything with this team.

Could happen, and hell.. maybe it would be a good thing.

Losing Orton would be silly, though.

Against this. Let him fight.

Unless value is good.

McDaniels has made plenty of QB personnel mistakes so far, wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Injury concerns? I know he had one injury, but the guy is the best WR in the league. A beast.

More likely cost 2 #1 picks.

Guy had back to back 1,500 yard seasons. He makes that offense go. Schaub would be pissed.

I heard on Thomas the Tank Engine in Baltimore that Joe Flacco can be a doody head and Ray Lewis' nickname is Stabby McStabsalot.

Yeah its been over 78 hours since the last shake up. I'm going through shake up withdrawals.

however, don't mean to rebut the OP, but my dad once rode in an elevator with John Elway and my dad now thinks that Kyle Orton is going to be slapped with the franchise tag and will be our starting QB this year to raise his value, and hes probably right, cause he rode in an elevator with John Elway. My dad also rides the light rail.

I agree with this. Unless some team came calling with a first rounder or some other stupid compensation, getting rid of him now wouldn't make sense.

And I hate rumor starters too. My friend isn't of the personality type to say this to jack with me. He was my college roommate. He lives in the tech center, and goes drinking with these guys quite a bit. Occasionally, after drinks have been flowing, they get a little freer with information.

I don't want to rely on the young QB's.

You might be totally on the up and up with this, no way for me to know, but why haven't you given up scoop prior to this? Or have you and I missed it?

Given McDaniel's ability to make horrific choices (Getting rid of Nolan, the trades, etc), it would not surprise me. Even as a fan of what Tebow could be, I think that it's too soon for it, but if we are going to have a rebuilding year, go ahead and call it a rebuilding year.
