Some nice points, Matthew, except for one: Orton threw the ball 74 yards in a QB Challenge as a high school senior, i.e., before he was fully developed.(In the 2002 QB Challenge, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning threw the ball 67 and 68 yards, respectively. In a later QB challenge, Brett Favre threw the 77 yards, just three yards further than Orton.)

In the New England game last year (2009), Ortons "hail Mary" pass at the end of the first half traveled about 65 yards in the air. In the Washington game, Orton completed two 50+ yard passes to Brandon Marshall and OVERTHREW Eddie Royal with another 50+ yard heave. In the final KC game, Orton completed a 50+ yard pass to Jabbar Gaffney and drew an interference call with another 50+ yard pass that was on the money to Gaffney in the end zone.

This "no arm" jacket Orton seems to wear is a myth. Those who claim Orton has "no arm" are displaying how little they know about him ...

You know, I generally like this Matt Aguilar but he's way off base on this. Anyone who has seen the myriad photos of him floating around the Internet sucking on beers and kissing fat coeds knows that he's more interested in scoring some tail than he is touchdowns. I love all Purdue boys, but this guy is second rate at best. I'm an expert on football because I subscribe to the Sunday Ticket.
Dont know if those are the same photos I have seen, I have seen the ones where he was @@@@-faced with a bottle of Jack in his hands, looked hilarious. All he is, is a servicable journeyman QB.
