Broncos waive Kyle Orton - Lovie Smith's prayers answered by Tim Tebow

USA today is reporting that the Denver Bronco's have released once and future quarterback Kyle Orton. Seems like the prudent move, I mean when the rest of your stable of QBs is stocked with the likes of Tim Tebow and Brady Quinn, why not get rid of a competent passer. Who needs 'em.

Fact is after the way Broncos fans treated Orton he would be well within his rights to throw nothing but intentional pick 6s if he ever got his hands on the ball again. For a group that worships at the alter with Tebow, you'd think they'd have displayed a little more compassion than what they did.

But Denver's loss is somebody's gain. Between the injured QBs, the rookie QBs who aren't Cam Newton and Matt Leinart, there are a lot of opportunities for a guy like Orton to find a home rather quickly. Just yesterday the pundits were talking about the Bears needing to run out and pick up Marc Bulger for the love of God. And frankly that may still be their best option since I have a hard time imagining that someone with a better waiver position won;t swoop in and snatch Orton up. Perhaps someone in the same division as Denver? Kansas City can't possibly have enjoyed Tyler Palko's pick fest against one of the worst pass defenses in the league last night. How awesome would it be for Orton to get a chance to face Tebow on the field in week 17 against the Broncos? So awesome that it should be mandatory prime time viewing.

Look even farther down the waiver rankings and gaze upon the once proud Redskins who need two more QBs and two fewer RBs.

If by some magical chance the Bears prayers are answered and Orton comes home to play substitute QB while Cutler heals, I'll enjoy the look on Cutler's face every time Orton throws a TD. Cutler has a wonder way of expressing his innermost feelings with a palette of scowls rivaling Dick Cheney.

Either way, this is wonderful news for Kyle who could use a fresh start, hopefully somewhere where he can play Denver endlessly.

This is too funny....this is a fantasy football article and you guys are worrying about grammar. Would you like one of those little umbrella's with your beer?

Actually it should be Bears' since it's a plural noun. But by all means, go on smugly correcting people. I don't know a soul who doesn't love that!

What kind of pathetic loser sits around indignantly correcting typos in a fantasy football column? Good grief! If it bothers you that much please stop reading this site! Fussy English teacher or loser without a life -I can't decide which you guys seem to be

Bronco's should be Broncos.
This could go on for hours.
If the Observer is going to publish a blog they should expect a writer to be able to read. Others can. This many errors in an article, and I am sure we can find more, means whatever insight the author had is lost in the translation from his gibberish into proper English. I actually stopped reading for understanding in the first paragraph and just started looking for the many errors. That was more fun

Tarhoosier, you fight with people when you play board games too, don't you?

More like Todd Haley's prayers answered by Tim Tebow. I like Tebow, but I hope Orton stomps the Donks into hamburger on New Year's Day. He really got the shaft in Denver.
