Default Kyle Orton isn't going anywhere now and will be our starter whether we like it or not.

Sorry Tim Tebow but your going to have to wait another year for sure now.

theres going to be an NFL season in September but theres probably not going to be those other things like camps and OTAs and maybe even pre-reason which really does hurt us.

but it also means we can't just throw Tebow into the fire with no camps and OTAs and we can't trade Orton for draft picks.

sad day for bronco fans.

It's pretty safe to say that Kyle Orton might just be the only winner in this thing.

Which is ironic, given his lack of winningness.

Why not? We threw him in there in week 15 of last season. How is that any better than starting him week 1 of the following season?

Put it this way...he's got more experience now than he did last season when he started.

from what i understand, its now just gonna be business as usual using 2010 rules? So...why cant he be traded? If Doty files an injunction that says they cant lock the players out, then the new league year should start up soon

personally I wouldn't say Kyle Orton wins anything in this situation, hes stuck in a town who ultimately wants to see Tim Tebow start and who want to see him out the door for a draft pick, its hard to be somewhere fans don't want you, I just hope fans can be smart and realize we have no choice and we should at least try to support Orton in 2011.

I wish there was a clear write up about this whole thing, everything I am reading says a different outcome.

but as of right now I am hearing it doesn't look good for OTAs, camp and pre-season.

but one thing I read said FA will still happen just in mid-april which would be nice.

But i think the confusion is whether or not there will be a lockout...but i cant imagine any cirucmstance in which there will be. So then what exactly? Im not positive, but i think its business as usual.

If there's FA then trading will be allowed, you can bank on that. It probably means though now the 6 year rule may stay in place so the FA pool will be real thin again anyway.

Lol. That just means Tebow has more time to work.

Kyle Orton is just tired of delivering the goods at every frickin' turn.

I'm wondering why they would have any reason to sign draft picks before the rookie wage scale gets put in place.

They could also very easily just refuse to pay rookies more than the wage scale, that has already been agreed upon, set up. I'm pretty sure the rookie wage scale was already outlined and could easily be followed even though there isn't a new CBA mandating it.
