    Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels has named Kyle Orton his starting quarterback. Orton had been competing with Chris Simms for the job throughout the off-season. Orton, who was acquired from the Chicago Bears on April 3 as part of the Jay Cutler trade, was named the starter with two days remaining in the Broncos' off-season minicamp training program.

    The Raiders have regain the top spot on my AFC west hate list after that idiot Cutler was traded. The Bears are now most hated NFC team.

    Nobody will ever top Dallas for most hated NFC team.

    So, Cutler's a crybaby. Big deal, that's nothing compared to the pompous idiocy of labeling your team "America's team".

    If they stole it from the Colts they did a very effective job in the theivery job.

    Ask the average person on the street who "America's Team" is supposed to refer to.

    Nobody will say the Colts.

    Marshall should be getting arrested again any time soon. He's due. :yes:

    Then Bowlen will suck someone off and he'll get to play.

    As much as I detest the Donks, it would be absolutely hysterical if Orton outperformed Cutler this season. :icon_rofl:

    It was during the Unitas days that the Colts were America's Team.

    It'd also be hysterical if the Patriots finish 2-14, but neither is going to happen.

    Outperforming him how?

    I agree he'll outperform him in number of times crying to the officials and on a general douche-bag scale.

    Unfortunatly, though, (Well, fortunately for us) maturity doesn't make Kyle Orton a good QB and it definitely doesn't make him better than a 4,000+ yard pro bowl QB.

    I really do believe that Orton will put up better stats, or at the very least very comparable stats to Cutler.

    McDaniels will want to throw, Lovie will want to run.

    Orton has people to throw to, Cutler has a good TE and a guy who was a great returner who used to be a DB.

    Orton will have to throw a lot/play catch up because Denver's D is terrible, Chicago has been in a bunch of close games, and will probably win more games, so they will be running more late in the game.

    It wouldn't surpise me one bit if Orton's stats were better...


    But unfortunately for Cutler hater's (like me :wave:), the Bears are the only one of the two teams that have a legit shot at the playoffs.

    This is going to be one of the things I will be watching all season, Cutler vs. Orton (as a Denver/Cutler hater and living in Chicago). :popcorn:
