Default How would you respond to an Orton for Palmer trade?

What would be your response if someway, somehow Elway managed to make a deal that traded Kyle Orton for Carson Palmer?

it would put us in the same position as now. a vet who expects to start, but isn't really any better than Tebow, and has already reached his peak, with an attitude of i won't play here if i don't start.

trade Orton for picks not a replacement

Not sure the upshot of this unless you really dont believe in Tim.

Regardless, lets say this happened, can Tim still come in at the 10 yard line? Did you notice how the broncos red zone issues, an ANNUAL problem, virtually disappeared once we put Tim in near the goalline?

Outside of a few games while injured, hasn't Orton outperformed Palmer over the past two seasons?

Ill take a 4th round pick for orton over palmer, dude hasn't been good for a couple of years and tebow has cemented himself as the starter. The open competition rhetoric is still out there only to generate more trade value for orton.

the whole team looked better with Tebow in.

that can't be overlooked. he was playing with an interim coach, with no real preparation working with the 1st team offense prior to his starting, and playing with a neutered playbook, and the team in all phases looked better with him on the field.

screw Orton, screw Palmer, this is Tebow time.

agreed.

now Denver if the CBA is worked out can field offers for Orton and pull this card
"well he is our starter, we can't just give him away for nothing, we need something in return."

if he is seen as a starter other teams will be forced to give up more to get him. if Tebow was named starter, then other teams could lowball Denver on trade proposals.

Yes please. He'd be a much stronger backup for Timmy. And by stronger I mean, sober, more accurate, more mobile, sober..

Palmer's contract is huge (he's due 12 million this year) and it looks like if he's demanding to be traded he wants to be a starter.

Honestly, I think the chance is there for a platoon system at QB. Tebow in the red zone, and short thirds, and some other QB at other positions.

Is it Palmer? I really don't think so. I don't think Palmer is going to be willing to play anywhere where a up and coming QB is already located. Plus, I don't see Orton being willing to go to a team like the bengals with very little talent at WR, assuming that Ocho and Owens are on the way out.

I wouldn't see the point. Trade orton for a 3rd and a 5th and I'm happy.

if we do that platoon QB crap and if Elway, Xanders, and Fox allow that to happen, they all deserve to be fired.

if Tebow is your starter, you play him 100% of the time, regarless of mistakes he will make. you take the good with the bad and live with it.

if someone else is the starter, then that guy is your QB, and he plays 100% of the time.

QB is not like RB in that it can have multiple players for different looks and different scenarios in a game. QB can't keep flipping in and out.
