    Broncos/Orton

    Orton has thrown 3 picks so far in their pre-season game against the 49'ers.

    2nd quarter with 5min to go.

    Thanks Denver,

    Signed,
    Bears fans.

    Well we still got two 1st round picks and one 3rd rounder, and you got a little baby with a career record of 17-20. And how a team or player plays in the pre-season has little to no effect on their performance during the regular season.

    Denver would have been 7-30 in those games if it wasn't for Cutler. That defense is brutal. Now with Orton this is going to be the Worst Broncos team I have seen.

    FYI I am a Broncos fan so I am not bagging on them. I have been to Invesco twice and love it

    They were 7-4 and on their way to winning the division in 2006 with Plummer at QB before Shanahan decided to bench him for Cutler. It's all been downhill since then.

    If you saw any of the picks then you would know they were of the Jay Cutler variety (2 of 'em were at least)- forcing stuff that wasn't there to kill a drive, but you'll learn that soon enough. Dude has not been to the postseason in 7 or so years of starting in college and the pros, and he doesn't even have receivers like Marshall or Royal to throw to anymore. BTW Royal had 40 more Rec., 220 more yards, and 2 TD more than Hester as a rookie.

    I did see them. I am watching right now.

    So you are saying that Orton is a better QB than Cutler?

    We shall see.

    Well maybe not just based on talent, but Orton has proven that he can win. Can't say the same for Cutler.

    Re: Broncos/Orton

    Sounds like sour grapes from Broncos fans. You got a serviceable QB and some great draft picks, so it wasn't a total loss, but lets not act like Cutler isn't a good player. Hopefully both teams benefit from the deal.

    I've been a bronco fan for 20 years. But I'd wager large amounts of money that Cutler wins more games this year than Orton.

    Re: Broncos/Orton

    Broncos will be around 6-10 to 8-8... Offense is going to be solid. Moreno is going to be a stud IMO. Defense.... ugh. gonna take a few season to get that 3-4 going


    ALL IN

    Please stop. You sound so bitter and it is making you sound silly. Orton isn't half the QB that Cutler is....check that, he is not 1/4 of the QB. Orton won behind what was a top 3 defense in the league. There were 40 QB's in the NFL that could have won with that defense.

    Cutler had one of the worst defenses in the league at Denver.

    Re: Broncos/Orton

    As an avid Bears fan, it is nice to have a pro bowl quarterback at the helm.. Ah that even feels good to type.. For our history of struggling at the position and our not so successful first round draft picking (minus a slim few), I have and will continue to feel it was a great move. A chance for stability at a position that we have suffered with so much is a great breath of fresh air.
