Default Bright side? Orton and Lloyd on pace to make pro-bowl

I know, I hate the way the team is too, but I'm a glass is half full guy. Or at least a "Hey, we have water!" guy. Lloyd and Orton both having career years means they will likely at least be alternates in the pro-bowl. Nice to have and not bad if you're looking for trade compensation.

Brandon Lloyd may make it, but I kind of doubt Kyle Orton will... not b/c he isn't deserving but b/c he is on a losing team and many associate QBs and wins together. Statistically he is very deserving, but I think Phillip Rivers gets the nod in front of Kyle Orton. And you know the fans will favor Peyton Manning and likely league MVP Tom Brady over Orton as well. And b/c of fan popularity there is a chance that Mark Sanchez (yuck) and Ben Worthlisberger both get the nod over Orton.

As for Brandon Lloyd, I think he really deserves a spot on the Pro-Bowl. But we've seen a lot of players get in on reputation (see Andre Johnson and Reggie Wayne here). Factor in guys like Dwayne Bowe going off and it may wind up with Brandon Lloyd being an alternate. But with the numbers he is putting up (nearly 20 ypc, will most likely have double digit TDs, and should end up at or over 1500 yards) it will be hard to keep him out.

Same thing with Orton, if he goes over 5000 yards it will be difficult to keep him out of the Pro-bowl. I hope they both make it! Like you said, if nothing else it gives the team options if they do want to make a trade... which I hope they do not.

I had a bet with someone on here that Orton wouldn't make it...hopefully he doesn't. hahaha, I think the AFC is too strong with Manning, Rivers, Brady, and even Sanchize..but if enough turn it down he may be in there.

6th Alternate because the other 5 guys can't/don't want to go still makes you a Pro Bowler...kinda.

Yea. But it's like Brown fan thinks they're a playoff team around parts of ohio.

I can see Kyle making the probowl, we all know a few A-listers will bow out of the game.

Not sure about Lloyd. I just don't think enough people know who he is (meaning the non-fantasy player fan).

Lloyd will make it. 2/3 of the vote is players and coaches and they typically vote by the stat sheet at the WR position.

Even if they have Sunday ticket they are not going to watch us play....hell look at the no-shows Sunday, the fans don't even want to come to the game.

Lol I was actually thinking about that the other day driving home. I'll admit I don't really give a **** these days, and I didn't even watch the game until I saw that they were coming back so I went and found a stream. Losing doesn't bother me anymore, while winning is met with reserved, brief satisfaction (if that). "State of indifference" is what they call that, I believe.

"State of indifference" would also apply to anyone on this team making the pro bowl, really.

I was going to respond, who cares? Until I read the last sentence.

By rating, ortons not on the top 5. You could overcome that if we were a winning team, but People will rightly note that ortons numbers reflect a horrible run game.

In a season like this, you have to find little things to root for. A few of our guys are having great seasons throughout this whole thing. I've always liked Orton, and I couldn't be happier that he's having the kind of statistical season he is. Imagine what this team could look like if we could just play a lick of defense.

Imagine how he'd look if we had a reliable rushing attack

Shoot right now Matt Cassell has a better shot IMO of the Pro Bowl than Orton.

Or if Kyle Orton wasn't going two and three quarters between 3rd down conversions!

True, and I actually think we might have an O.K. rushing attack if we ever actually decided to stick with it.

The play-calling Sunday was a mess. We get a lead, and we know we have absolutely no defense. How about slowing the game down a bit?

Moreno looked good again. Even Ball had a couple nice carries. But, we just stop running at a certain point.

72k tickets dispersed to the last game...not sure if that means much but take it for what its worth

Yeah, the first time Moreno doesn't get 7 or 8 yards on a carry!

We've had so much luck in the recent past with our probowlers.

Like I've been saying for some time now.... no thank you. I prefer zero Broncos in the Pro Bowl. It only costs us (in many ways).
