im of the mindset that we know, for a fact, what orton brings. and i dont think it will ever be more than what we have already seen, but you NEED more from the QB position to be an absolute success in the nfl. if he has time, he is as good as any QB in the NFL, really. problem is the QB isnt always going to get time to throw, sometimes you need to convert on 3rd and medium-long or in the red zone.

Voted for option two...BUT, I think its still too early to tell. Here's how it shakes out for me

Hoping for tebow, but have no problem with him riding the pine for another year or two. Love what kyle brings to the offense, but if quinn keeps playing lights out I'll happily root for him as the starter.

But, but, but, "insert generic farcical justification"

I can't believe the choices have come down to a Orton, Quinn, and Teboz.

I can settle for Orton, would like to have seen what Tebow could have done with a full season, am impressed by Quinn and realize now that I don't think it's unlikely that all 3 are gone this next year and we are banking on some rookie/vet journeyman combo.

Then I get a sad face.

Orton is the safest choice with his low rate of bad decision-making. It's ok.

I thought all along that orton would win the job, but I haven't given up on Tebow. My hope was taht Tebow would have hired a qb coach and worked on mechanics, and the staff thought playing the kid would be possible, so they'd just trade Orton for a third or whatever they could get. Then they could have spun it to the fans that they were gonna see what he could do. If he was terrible, they'd be in the luck sweepstakes. Even if Tebow stunk it would have been entertaining. I remember Bobby Douglas running for over 900 yards for da Bears in a 14 game schedule. They went 4-9-1, but it was entertaining.

People are more concerned with winning 6-7 games than taking a chance. This team has sucked for a decade with a minor bright spot here or there. No roll of the dice equals us in the same position we are in now at the start of next year. Then we can draft a QB and maybe be respectable in 2015.

Great time to be a Bronco Fan

I've seen both Orton and Tebow start in actual games that matter. Give me Tebow.

And I don't believe the nonsense of the locker room wanting Orton, I saw the whole team lifted when TT was starting last year, even when we had nothing to play for.

Of course players have no idea who is the better player.

Last year Kolb was the starting QB (QBOTF) in Philly and now he's in ARI. I guess I'll never assume anything at this point and just let the season play out.

If Orton's starting week ten, I'll be amazed.

If it takes another year to develop Tebow - so be it. Just allow him to play (in special packages) and continue to develop all season. Don't trade him, get him ready to start next season.

If the lack of an offseason cost him a year of development, that's ok as long as we are still committed to him long term.

Don't be fooled by Orton and Quinn's play in preseason.
They fold under pressure.

I don't understand the Quinn love at this point. He has certainly improved, but almost every single throw was late, and contested, by Buffalo.

I hope, hope, hope that the only reason he started over Tebow was "showcasing" for a trade. Orton is a mile ahead of Quinn, and to watch Quinn would be painful. I would rather go through some errant throws from Tebow, coupled with flashes of greatness, than watch a mediocre (at best) performance from Quinn.
