He knows he either grows up, steps up, and if he gets an opportunity takes advantage of it or he's going to be a QB for some crappy unknown arena league team flipping burgers on the side. I think Young behaves and comes in with a sense of urgency.
      ok got a point there
      Thanks Freyaka for the Sig! And Avatar!

        Wow, so McDaniels coached Orton to his 21-12 record in Chicago? And helped KO go 2-1 in KC - including a win over previously unbeaten Green Bay?

        Just HOW did Josh "mask Orton's weaknesses?" By forcing a stupidly complicated offensive scheme down everyone's throats? By having the O-line play in a pass-blocking scheme they weren't suited for? By destroying the run game when he had "tough" OTAs where he managed to injure both the starting RB and the backup? Or was it the way that McD traded away any decent offensive talent that Shanny had left behind?

        Just where did McD do Orton any favors?
