Friends, Romans, Broncomaniacs, lend me your tears.
Now, shut up and stop crying. There’s no crying in football.
So Kyle Orton threw three picks. So what? If you want to dump your Orton jersey now, send them all to me. I’ll send them as Christmas gifts to all the Chicago fans that will be wishing they still had some love from the neckbeard come December.
It could always be worse. You could be a degenerate. Or a drunk. Or a combination of the two, which would make you a Raider fan. But I digress.
Orton is straight up cash money. Bet against him. Go ahead. The dude is a winner. And since I wrote an earlier post saying I thought he was going to do wonders in this system, I can’t back off now.
So it’s double or nothing. Orton is going to win games. A lot of games.
I’m not going to give you any TD-INT stats or talk about arm strength or happy feet. I’m going to tell you what you already know in your gut: Orton is a winner, to the tune of over 60% of his games. That’s a 10-6 record. I’ll take it.
Some guys have it. Some don’t. Some guys engender (look the word up, Raider fans) respect and love from their teammates. Others do not. In short, some guys win because they are winners. It’s the difference between a Rod Smith and a Chad Johnson (no, I won’t call him that).
The last guy in a Denver uniform who could grow facial hair to rival Orton’s was Jake Plummer. Despite what you might have thought about his TD-INT ratio, there was no doubt the Broncos won with him under center. If you don’t remember this recent quote from him, it’s worth mentioning again:
“…Jeff George was a hell of a player. There's a lot of guys who have been great players."
Kyle Orton is not Jeff George. Or Jay Cutler. No, he’s not even close.
He’s going to win games.
Rock the NeckBeard!!
