    Where do you think Orton will rank among QBs at the end of 2010?

    Simple question.

    Where do you think Orton will rank (by using qb rating) among QBs by the end of the 2010 regular season?

    Last year he ranked 14th using the qb rating (86.8).

    List your selection if you like and we could visit this at the end of the year to see how we did on our selections.



    I would like to add, please no discussion on the picks. I would like to have everyone to be able to make their picks and say their reasoning without having to defend themselves.

    I think that one or two of last year rookies are going to push him down a bit. I get the feel that Orton will end up any where from 13-19.

    Well, here's the scoop: Last year, Orton:

    * Played the first three games with the guiding finger to his throwing hand bandaged up
    * Played the first 8 games on one bad ankle
    * Played the remaining 7 games on two bad ankles
    * Played in a new system
    * Had a new playbook
    * Played with new teammates

    Yet he still ranked #14 in the league by QBR.

    This year, all those obstacles are gone. I have him at #5.

    I expect a QB rating in the high 70's or low 80's. That should be good for 20th in the league or so.

    The trend in the quality of Orton's play over the last season has been decidedly downward, and I expect that trend to continue somewhat.

    So you expect him to be better than the likes of Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Tony Romo and Matt Schaub who were all outside the top 5 last year? And even when Orton is throwing to an unproven receiver set and a shaky offensive line as it stands?

    I reckon around 14th.
