Fodder being used to fertilize the growth of trade possibilities.

No team can survive half Tebow and half Orton. It must be all of one or all of the other.

The real question is: does Orton think Denver is too cold?

One thing an NFL GM/Prez has to learn is the art of deception and misdirection. It's a gigantic poker game and statements you make always have a purpose, whether they're truthful or not.

Translation- We are willing to trade Orton for the value of a starting QB not a bench warmer who has worn out his welcome!

So if the Broncos had to play the Wed before the Superbowl then Kyle Orton would be our QB.... I'm actually okay with that, save Tebow for Sundays.

Agreed ! Example

This car is a total piece of ****, It'll run for awhile but eventually it is going to let you down . Still wanna buy it ?

Or

This is a strong running car, everything works well on it. It may not be a Lamborghini but it is going to get you where you are going.


Elway is a true car salesman at heart

He didnt even really play his hand all that well. Playing your hand would be "we're not trading kyle orton" Leaving it open ended, hes saying he's willing to do it. Do you think he'd ever suggest that me MIGHT trade Tim Tebow?

How pissed would we be if Elway came on and told all our potential trading partners we no longer needed Orton around? We might get a #2 for him but if he let the cat out of the bag this early, we'd be lucky to see a 4th.

This falls in line with other comments by Elway on Tebow, that is, they like his intangibles but he still has a lot to work on, etc. Elway is publically backing up the veteran QB, and publically telling everyone Tebow is still raw.

He sounds like a good VP of Football Operations.
