Orton Takes a Shot at Fans Who Support Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow is winning Denver’s quarterback competition — for the No. 2 job behind starter Kyle Orton. The Broncos released their depth chart Monday in advance of their preseason opener at Dallas this week and there was no change in the order from a year ago: 1. Orton; 2. Tebow; 3. Brady Quinn. Tebow is winning the popularity contest.

The crowds at the team’s Dove Valley headquarters are dotted with Tebow jerseys — his No. 15 is one of the league’s best-sellers — while it’s hard to find an Orton jersey. Orton was asked after Monday’s nearly three-hour workout about Tebow being the people’s choice. ”Thank God the people don’t make the decisions” on who’s starting, Orton said. ”That’s really all I’ve got to say about it.”

    Sounds nice and smug now but when he starts losing football games, then what?

    Wasn’t Orton’s record 3-10 last year? When did he become so great?

    Is Orton the best qb in the nfl? Not today .. but he is the guy that the johns have chosen to lead the team. C’mon Bronco Nation … Show some support for the team !

    I think his other quote was even worse…”My last goal playing quarterback is to win over the fans,” Orton said Monday. “That’s my last goal.”

    Well, it’s a good thing that’s your last goal Kyle, because after watching you Turtle for 2 years and fail in the clutch, getting fans to support you is probably the last thing that’s going to happen.

    I think most Broncos fans just want to win and don’t care who leads us to victory as long as they just do it.
