I think the time has come to move on from Rex completely.
Orton's really not any better than Grossman. Plus he doesn't know our offense. No thanks.

Exactly. Denver dumped him for Tim Tebow. Nuff' said.

You can pretty much replace Orton with any of the following: Chad Henne/Rex Grossman/Alex Smith/Sage Rosenfels/Brady Quinn/Shaun Hill and have a pretty good idea of where the Redskins are going to go this offseason. They're going to kick the tires on Hoyer, et al, and if they can't pry him/them loose with minimal draft pick involvement, it's going to be a veteran.

Orton is the biggest name on that list, but I wouldn't rule out the newfound credibility an Alex Smith signing could bring if the idea is to buy as much time as possible with an offseason move. Smith isn't a flashy name, but his stock has never been higher.
Henne is the only guy that I would look at. And I find it hard to believe that Miami's just going to let him walk. Especially if they're going to run Green Bay's style of offense.

Yeah, well, their loss.

Re: Mike Lombardi Links Kyle Orton to the Redskins

GTripp alluded to this earlier, but if we had true interest, wouldn't we claimed Orton off waivers?

OK. He's a very small upgrade.

They both SUCK!!! Just ask the Chicago Bears who couldn't decide which one sucked less. I want a real QB in town not a pretend filler.

Re: Mike Lombardi Links Kyle Orton to the Redskins

We are going to need a backup guys, hopefully one not named Grossman.

Re: Mike Lombardi Links Kyle Orton to the Redskins

He's better then Rex...but if our upgrade at QB still leaves us with the worst QB in the NFC East is it really the right choice?

Orton + a rookie other then Luck or Griffin is not good enough.

I hope MS has a better plan, but this would be an improvement over Grossman/Beck.

Re: Mike Lombardi Links Kyle Orton to the Redskins

Orton = Grossman in my book. Gets drafted by the Bears and doesn't turn out to be a franchise QB, gets traded to the Bronco's and does not do very well turns out he's not a franchise QB otherwise they would not have traded him to KC where amazingly enough turns out he was not their answer to having a franchise QB.

I don't t see the novelty and hope the coaching staff does not either.

We all know Plax is a straight shooter. He never likes to tease, and his comments are fully loaded. If he says it it must be true.
