Broncos QB Kyle Orton named the starter, for now

Full story: Fox 31 KDVR 13
Tim Tebow has more attention. Brady Quinn, supposedly, has more upside. However, Kyle Orton has something both of these players don't, and it may be more important than any other factor: the support of the Denver Broncos' locker room. Full Story

Orton was drafted, in the fourth round I believe. For what that's worth. He is a decent quarterback, but I don't think he has what it takes to lead a team all the way. Tebow is that guy, I'm pretty certain. He may have wonky passing mechanics, but that is only one small part of the overall package. Even with that drawback he managed to complete 67% of his passes in the toughest conference in college football. But Tebow comes into the league with probably the best combination of intelligence and athleticism ever at the quarterback position. I think he is stronger and smarter than John Elway was. Brett Favre would be the only comparable player coming out of college, but Favre was far less mature.

Zubin your facts are a little off. Orton didn't go undrated, he was taken in the 4th round, 106 overall by the Chicago Bears.

Get ready for another disappointing season folks! Now I do call the judgment of McDaniels into question.

Broncos need a quarterback who can threaten the long ball on every play. Orton can't. The Broncos faced too many games last season where their opponent's defense was crowding the field up front and not worrying about the "hail mary". Orton can thread the needle on the short pass and is probably the best there is in the NFL in that department. But we need the long ball.

Since we are going to suck why not just give it to Tebow and let him get experience that way?

I like the title of this article "Orton gets the nod, for now". Its funny, because Angel Wings nods too. You just wave an apple up and down in front of her face and her whole head gives a big nod up and down as she follows the apple!

No one in his right mind would have named a rookie qb who has never taken a snap. Good grief. Are there any other rookie qbs destined to take the first snap this year?

Tebow is garby he is no savior for the Broncs. Orton will get a paper cut on his pinky and leave the opener.
