  • Is Kyle Orton Pulling A Tim Tebow In Dallas?

    Came across this just now. I have to say it's a bit much even for me.

    Is Kyle Orton Pulling A Tim Tebow In Dallas?

    Aug 7th, 2012 at 7:12 pm by Steven Mullenax

    The Dallas Cowboys’ training camp is now well under way in Oxnard, California culminating in it’s first official “Blue and White” scrimmage over the weekend. Two of the biggest highlights from said scrimmage have to be the interception made by free agent acquisition corner Brandon Carr, on a toss by quarterback Tony Romo, and the six touchdown passes thrown by his back-up, Kyle Orton. Did you hear much about Romo outside of the interception? Not really. It seems it’s just business as usual for Romo as far as the media is concerned. And that could mean trouble in the future…Tim Tebow sized trouble.

    Hear me out here. There is no quarterback controversy is Dallas. Zero. Nada. Everyone agrees, Romo is the starting quarterback. But I’ve always wondered something about Orton. Why would he come to Dallas to back-up Romo? Why would he come here when he could compete for a starting job somewhere else? After this weekend, the seed of a thought crept into my brain. Did Orton actually come to the Cowboys to get a starting job?

    Last year, Orton started his third straight season in Denver. He had the starting job going into the season with incumbent Tebow on the bench. (an alleged fourth string QB in the preseason) But a 1-4 record and a million chanting Tebow fans later, and Orton was on the pine and soon released. I could understand, after suffering an embarrassment like that, wanting to go somewhere that had zero controversy. After playing out the rest of the season with the Kansas City Chiefs, Orton signed with the Cowboys almost immediately, right out of free agency.

    When the news hit that we secured the best back-up in the league so early on, I was ecstatic. But a few questions did linger in my mind. Why did Orton sign so quickly without fully researching his starting options? And if he did just want to avoid controversy, why sign a three year deal? Orton is 29 years old. He’s in his prime years to start. Why sign a contract to be a back-up until your 33? The answer is simple: Orton sees a future in Dallas.

    But what that future is, only Orton knows. But let’s not forget that Romo is 32 years old. His contract runs out in 2013 due to a restructuring from last summer. And owner Jerry Jones’ patience, along side most of Cowboy Nation, is wearing more than a little thin. Many see this as Romo’s make or break year. But did that have anything to do with Orton’s quick decision to play in Dallas?

    Romo is coming off the best statistical season of his career. But let’s not forget that Orton was coming off two great statistical years before being benched. In 2010, Kyle threw for 3,653 passing yards and 20 touchdowns. The year before he had 3,802 yards with 21 touchdowns. But two straight years of not making the playoffs cost him in the end. Sound familiar?

    Is Orton pulling a Tebow in Dallas? Who knows? I do know this. If Dallas starts the year off at 1-4 or fails to make the playoffs again, it won’t be Tebow’s name some Cowboys fans will be chanting. It will be Orton’s. And wouldn’t that just be ironic.

      He probably would not even throw 6 passes in practice.

            Im still bitter about Orton and his fan club the Orton army or whatever it was, filled with people who thought he was the second coming.

            Kyle Orton IMO was one of the worst QBs the Broncos have ever had. He presided over the 14-59 loss to the Raiders among other all time Bronco lowlights including worst record ever posted by a Broncos team.

            Then his audacity to come back as a member of the Chiefs and play well at Mile High Stadium for once in his life. Kyle Orton is a punk.

              Kyle Orton is the greatest thing since polka dotted male thongs,

              Amazing QB, with the most impressive noodle arm n phantom sack while playing with no heart capabilities in the game

              Tebow Romo Orton, Tebow him, like Tebow Tebowed you!

              I finally came around, Neckbeard you've done it!

                How do you not just love a QB who manages to consistently suck with the game on the line!?!

                Fumble, sack, interception, Orton is gonna give it his all and overcome any chance you have at a win with his knack for losing a game for you...

                Can't ask for much more!

                  Just wanted to find out of that is true..

                  and start on day 1?

                  I guess in a way.. it is like an auto accident..
                  you just can;t drive by without looking.

                  I like the kid's moxy.. wish him well..just curious about the news...
                  happy to be moving forward with Peyton, though.

                  Then I stumble on all this..
                  Neckbeard still here.. peddling his Orton man-love?
                  still trying to spin and re-write history?

                  Simply amazing.

                    Edited for clarification - Per my understanding unless something huge has secretly happened in New York, Tim Tebow will be missing the fourth game and playing week one... As part of the Jets' wildcat/tebow package. Sanchez is their starting quarterback.

                        So. Let me get this straight.

                        YOU checked in on a message board for a team Tebow no longer plays for to get news on Timmy. Why? Doesn't the Gang Green Board have enough Tebow news for you?

                        And when I post an article about Orton in Dallas - where I call the writer DELUSIONAL when he suggests that Orton will replace Romo - then I'm the one peddling man-love for an ex-Broncos QB?

                        Really?

                        I mean...

                        ...REALLY?

                          There is one large difference between PainterDave and you.

                          He's a Broncos fan, you are not. There's a reason he posts on these boards, and that has to do with everything Broncos and even some Tebow related stuff.

                          You were never here for the Broncos, you were here for Orton (which could be said for a lot of the Tebow only fans that were here as well)

                            He is a Broncos fan asking for news about Tebow and the Jets in the "NFL and Other Teams" section of a Broncos fan forum. It actually makes a lot of sense, even if it might not be the most efficient way of getting the info (although having said that, he did find out what he wanted to know almost straight away).

                              After watching tonight's game, I have come to the brilliant conclusion that barring injury to Romo or Sanchez, Orton and Tebow will have to settle for looking good in visors. Tebow looked awful again....even worse than Sanchez.
