    ummmm, I think he'll start his period, he's old enough now, puberty should be kicking in sometime relatively soon for him.

    that's about all he'll start.

    I know that I'm in the miniority, but I think KO could win as a starter in CHI, IF they get another WR/TE

    If he can't get a starting gig, sure.

    He'll probably continue to be a stop gap QB in the NFL

    There are so many excuses people can come up with for this guy. Yeah he beat Denver in that last game.. the score was like 7-3... lol

    Some of you love saying Tebow is horrible but, Orton barely played better than Tebow in that game and he is a veteran QB, who has been around years longer than Tebow... what does that tell you? lol

    The NFL is littered with guys who are out of the league after much fewer losses than Orton but, somehow because this guy looks good in TC he gets chance after chance.

    He won't beat out Cassell in KC... maybe someone will bring him in but he will be in the same situation he always ends up in... as soon as the team starts losing, the fanbase will be screaming for the new kid to start.

    Orton will always be the bridesmaid and never the bride.. its his lot in the NFL. lol
    Orton is a 20/20 QB..............his numbers are good between the 20's, but struggles in the redzone. That in itself makes him a backup QB in this league. For Orton to be a winning starting QB he would need to be on a team that is very good on offense, defense and special teams. If you are you can win with Orton, but never because of him, and the only teams out there that need a QB are some of the really bad ones.

    One word: backup

    His starting days are over, barring injury from the teams #1.

    The winning record is not a measure of one player or one position. It represents an entire team effort. Yes the Quarterback has a large impact on the game but individual situations need to be taken into account. A lot of teams and quarterbacks get wins due to other dominant parts of the team.

    For example:

    Kyle Orton: Look at his time with Chicago. Top defense. Run game. All he had to do was manage the game and not make mistakes. They won with him but they didn't win cause of him. He was 21-12.

    Tim Tebow: If this defense didn't show up we were essentially done. The one exeption was the Vikings game where the defense still scored a TD and got the pick to seal it. The games we won this defense allowed an amazing 16.9 points per game. That is amazing. That is elite defense right there. He was a part of the team but was not the reason we were there.

    Joe Flacco: His record since he entered the league. He is 44-20 as a starter. He is a very average QB. His team was in it not because of him. He was just there.

    Matt Cassel: In 2008 and 2010 he had winning records and a combined record of 20-10. Both of those years he was just average and due to a very good team around him he was there. He had the previously 18-1 Patriots team and a Kansas City team with the top rushing attack in the NFL and a solid defense. They made the playoffs in 2010 in spite of him.

    Mark Sanchez: His team had him in the confrence round of the playoffs two years in a row. He is bad. He was there cause of his team. Over 3 seasons he has a 27-20 record. He is one of the worst in the league.

    Alex Smith: After years of failure and despite actually good and much improved individual performance his team is so good. A huge reason he had a shot to compete for a trip to the superbowl yesterday.

    All of these examples of some of the worst and most average quarterbacks in the league shows that a quarterback should not just be measured by wins and losses as the quarterbacks like on this list show can still win with great teams.

    It is something that makes me laugh with those that defend Tebow with the expert analysis of he is a winner. I especially love the use of it by the media guys like Brandon Spanno, DMAC and Skip Bayless. They like a lot of others don't have the understanding to actually break down Tebow's play so they say to legit critique and concerns about his play with oh I don't care he is a winner.

    And I highly doubt Cassel would beat out Orton. Cassel is one of the worst quarterbacks in the league along with the guys above I just mentioned however Orton is better. I think if the Cheifs can rid of the salary they have tied to Cassel and get rid of him they will. I think Orton starts for Kansas City in 2012. He was instrumental in getting Romeo the job in Kansas City. I am sure after going 2-1 with him Romeo will try to keep Orton around.

    He'll start somewhere. I think it might be KC. It might be any one of several other teams as well.

    He'll be a starter though.

    I think he'll be a starter for somebody in the NFL. One of the teams that wants Luck or RG3 and doesn't get 'em.

    I said starter. In 3 starts he beat 2 playoff teams without Charles & Bowe for the majority of the last one. It might only be for a few games, but I don't doubt that he starts

    Stop gab, he won't sign with KC if its turns that the chiefs want to go into camp with both of them and best qb wins. Orton would ideally wants a place where he the undisputed quarterback for at least a year. He would start next year, but like any other years in his career he won't finish.

    Orton may stay in KC and has a good chance to beat out Cassel. I think Brady Quinn goes to Miami and beats out Matt Moore. Both Quinn and Orton have a lot to prove especially Quinn. How the heck can a quarterback develop and have success in Cleveland? They lack everything on offense.

    Only way he is a starter is if the team he plays for is developing a rookie behind him. Im not sure who all will be developing a rookie QB. But he will definitely be a backup. The jags sound like a good destination for anyone to be a stop gap. I have a feeling Quinn could sign there if orton doesnt. the Vikings seem to be all in on ponder. Then there are teams like the seahawks and redskins who may not be able to get RG3 if the browns pick him so you have those two places that they can go to.
