Seems that Kyle Orton felt the heat from Bronco fans during a huge crowd that showed up to watch a practice. The QB threw a couple of bad picks, and heard about it:
The largest crowd ever to watch a Denver Broncos practice didn’t much like what it saw.
New quarterback Kyle Orton, acquired from Chicago for Pro Bowl passer Jay Cutler in the biggest NFL trade of the offseason, was booed by the crowd of 13,402 at his unofficial debut at Invesco Field when he threw two interceptions and several bad passes during a structured scrimmage Thursday night.
Orton drew the fans’ ire when he was picked off twice by cornerback Andre’ Goodman, the second of which was returned for a long touchdown.
“I had a good day,” Goodman said in a lonely sentiment afterward.
Orton also was jeered when he threw behind receiver Chad Jackson, again when he missed a wide-open Jabar Gaffney in the end zone and also when he floated a pass down the middle that Champ Bailey busted up.
“Fans can cheer. They can boo,” Orton said. “We’ve got good fans, and they’re passionate about their football, that’s for sure.”
Could Orton find his way to the bench? If this keeps up, Josh McDaniels may not have a choice to look elsewhere to find someone to come out from under center.
