I know we wouldn't sign him he's just out there and in my eyes such an explosive runner.
We have two mediocre AT BEST, one solid but injury prone, and one rookie yet to even take a pro carry. Someone explosive would be nice, that's all.

Re: 2011 NFL Free Agency Thread

Reportedly Orton is choice #1 for the Dolphins, but right now they won't give up more than a 4th (and maybe a conditional pick or player) for him and Denver won't take less than a 2nd...so I suppose they could compromise and send him to Miami for a 3rd

Haynesworth for Orton. Win-win for both teams.

No it isn't. I'd rather have Beck/Grossman than Orton.

Re: 2011 NFL Free Agency Thread

Gak....no picks for Orton.
He's not a long term answer.

Re: 2011 NFL Free Agency Thread

If we could move Mcnabb for a 4th or 5th, I would definitely look into trading for Orton. Haynesworth and the 4th or 5th we attained for McNabb. He just turned 28, and with the reports putting Santnio Holmes in Washington, Its best we have a QB that can get the ball down the field and produce. Orton is the best bet in my eyes to making this squad better in the short term, and he sure isn't a bad long term prospect either. Somehow patch up the OLine, which I think we will with the reemergence of J. Brown and the replacment of Rabach, not to mention one additional season getting used to the zone blocking scheme, and I definitely wouldnt mind seeing Kyle Orton slinging the ball to Holmes, Moss, Hankerson and Cooley in the B&G. Plus, he wont command a really high salary.

Plus we all know the ties Shanny has with Elway. Him keeping quiet on the issue and putting his "faith" in Beck might just be the smokescreen to keeping the price on Orton low, and to shield our interest in him.

Orton is the best choice at QB for this team. Lets get it done.

You're tripping rainbows if you think that man. That's just crazy talk. I just hit the mute button on you until the first game of the preseason. Sorry...

You do realize Orton was BENCHED for TIM TEBOW??? TIM FREAKING TEBOW!!! He also was benched in favor or Rex Grossman back when he was on the Bears.


Yeah, I'll take Rex/Beck over Orton.

Re: 2011 NFL Free Agency Thread

Orton was injured and they went with Tebow the rest of the way to evaluate him. It's not like he was benched due to performance reasons.

Re: 2011 NFL Free Agency Thread

After the McNabb trade fiasco which was an absolute fail, I dont think I want Shanny sending more draft picks for Orton. Hanyesworth I would be more willing to give for Orton, but would Orton be a good fit? I just dont think so. Is Orton better than Rex/Beck, yes.

It doesn't matter. I still would not waste draft picks just to get Orton. If he was a FA, then that might be a different story. As it is, hell no.


edit: Would he even be a good QB in this system?

lol well it matters if that's your reasoning behind not wanting him as you just stated.

I was merely pointing out he got benched. Don't care about the reasons. I'm willing to bet you good money that both Beck and Grossman would outperform Orton in this offense this next year. You have 2 QBs that have experience with the system, and to bring in a QB that didn't know it? We saw how that worked with McNabb. Also, is Orton really a fit for this type of offense?
