Cassle's stats are the most mis-leading #'s in the game. Watch all of his throws this Sunday, you will see that with a decent QB they would be running away with the division easily with their insane running game. He misses so many open WR's it's sickening. but credit to him, when he misses they usually are sailign OB instead of into the hands of DB's, so I'll give him props there.

Orton has done way more with way less (outside of WR) this season and last. Cassel just tosses it up to Bowe and lets him do all of the dirty work. 2/3s of Cassel's TDs are to Bowe. Compared to 1/3 of Orton's being to Lloyd.

Take away Bowe and Cassel probably isn't doing much this year. Take away Lloyd and Orton could still spread the ball around.

Is that to say that Cassel wouldn't be doing better than Orton with another year under McD and in this offense? I don't know.

How is this even a question?

Orton is more prolific, he's tougher, and, from what I can tell from basic observation, he's a better on the field coach/leader with a better head for the game.

i'd say they are about even. I'd bet if the Broncos and Chiefs swapped QBs the records would be the same and stats would follow suit. Neither is a Game Breaker/Game Changer but both can be good in the right circumstances. They are both Average NFL starting QBs. Neither has ever won a playoff game.

Now as for Value, since Orton didnt get that silly Contract Cassel did, orton all the way.

problem is, Cassell is going against the worst defense in the NFL this week, so Cassell might have better stats, but overall, totally Orton

What Orton has done WITHOUT the threat of a running game has been nothing short of incredible. Of course, the answer is Orton...

I will take Orton over cassel..But, these type of polls are no use as homers will always pick the player that is currently playing for broncos.
Rivers vs cutler is a prime example..Many picked cutler over rivers.
Once cutler moved to Chicago..he sucks..

I think they're essentially the same palyer, so I lean towards the one with the neckbeard.

Yep. When in doubt, look for a neckbeard and go that direction.*

Orton - leads the NFL in yardage (3,370), right ahead of Rivers, but is 8th in passer rating. 20 TD's and 6 INT's

Cassel - 19th in yardage, but is 4th in rating (trailing only Vick, Brady, and Rivers). 22 TD's and 4 INT's.

Sure, Cassel has a better running game. But I'd still give him the nod over Orton.

I would not shrug off the running game difference so easily. It isn't just a better running game it is the Number 1 running game in the NFL vs. 30th, 174 ypg vs. 79. You can't tell me that isn't worth the 3.7 QB rating difference.

Not likely, I'm pretty sure I could have at least a 90 rating against the Denver Defense.
