Ha. I caught that little jab too. Doubt it was intended that way, but when you break it down, that's really all Orton has done.

Fox wants a gamer.

Fox will play the one that performs best.

Right now, the worst performing QB (granted from ONE preseason game) is #1 on the depth chart.

:/

If this keeps up...

"Orton led the Broncos to a field goal during his only drive. Tebow generated two field goals in 1 1/2 quarters. Quinn not only led the Broncos to two touchdowns, both touchdowns came in the fourth quarter. When evaluating quarterbacks, extra credit should be given to touchdowns in the fourth quarter."


Well that's BS.


Quinn is the only one that played in the 4th quarter...

Big, strong, mobile qb with a rocket arm. Whats not to like? If he can improve his accuracy on a consistent basis, no reason he shouldnt be a starter.

I'd love to see Quinn given a chance to play with the 1's.

You might be right, but I'm not so sure. Orton is a mediocre at best QB. The other 2 might not be better, but Orton is not irreplacable. Not at all.

Really?

Loyd = 77
Gaffney = 65
Royal = 59
RB's = 65

Looks pretty damn balanced overall, no glaring discrepancies

No ****.Orton didn't get a chance to make any 4th qtr TD's and only got a few reps.
Timbow also didn't get a chance for the highly coveted 4th qtr TD but he got more reps thean Kyle. WTF

Eh, Tim didn't have DeMarcus Ware bearing down on him. Moreover, 3 of the incompletions were complete asshat redzone calls that never should have happened. Still not sure why we didnt just run the effing ball.

Half were near the redzone, which apparently is KO kryptonite.

Are you trying to say Tim had better protection than Orton?

Not even remotely.

Just explaining that first incompletion. Or are you going to tell me that Tebow would have been able to complete that quick out with Ware right in his face like that? Yeah, good luck with that.

Ah, yeah that was a really sweet pre-snap read and an even better post snap reaction.

I love ALMOST pick-6s.

And would Tebow have been able to make a play? Don't know. Might have made the same pre-snap read. Might have looked the same way. Might have had the same "Defensive MVP wide open, gonna try and throw through him!" reaction.

Or he might have not been retarded. Who's to say?

2/6 vs 6/7

One of those was an "inaccurate QB" under heavy pressure. Guess who?

The Broncos don't and won't have the luxury of wasting the first quarters of games for Quinn to find his accuracy.

What a ****** mess of a QB situation!
