The Broncos on Thursday signed Kyle Orton to a contract extension

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Head Coach Josh McDaniels said Kyle Orton handled competition in the offseason like a professional, earning the starting quarterback job.

On Thursday, the signal caller got a little more job security, as the Broncos signed Orton to a contract extension.

"I am excited to announce that we have agreed on an extension of Kyle Ortonís contract," McDaniels said. "His leadership and knowledge of the offense have enabled him to have a solid offseason and training camp, and we are collectively looking forward to the 2010 season."

In the team's first preseason game in 2010, Orton led the team on two touchdown drives against the Bengals in the first quarter, finishing 8-for-13 for 84 yards with two touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 119.9.

That performance came on the heels of the best statistical season of his career in 2009.

"I really enjoy playing for the Denver Broncos as well as being part of this organization and this community," said Orton, whose 29-19 career record as a starting quarterback ranks eighth in the NFL among active players. "This is the place that my wife and I definitely want to be. Considering the labor environment, Iím aware of how difficult it was to get this deal done and am extremely appreciative of all of the hard work and support from (General Manager) Brian Xanders and Coach McDaniels during this process."

Last season, Orton -- a team captain -- played all 16 games with 15 starts for the Broncos, setting career highs for pass attempts, completions, passing yards, touchdowns pases and passer rating while tying his career low for interceptions.

He completed 336-of-541 passes -- a completion percentage of 62.1 -- for 3,802 yards with 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions for an 86.8 passer rating. It was the sixth-most passing yards for a season in team history, and he tied a club record -- alongside John Elway -- with 10 games with a passer rating of at least 90.0 that tied for fifth in the NFL for the year. His 2.2 interception percentage ranked third in team history and sixth in the NFL for the 2009 season.

In his five seasons in the NFL, Orton has thrown for 9,121 yards and 51 touchdowns.

"Iím eager to get this season started and will do whatever I can to help this team be successful," Orton said.

Quinn just really doesn't appear to understand football... Orton is solid and at some point soon, Tebow will likely leapfrog Quinn to the #2 role. Either way, if Orton gets hurt, they are SOL this season.

It's all part of McDaniel's master plan. He'll have the Broncos go 8-8 for several years, lull the entire NFL to sleep, and then unleash his genius on the unsuspecting NFL, catapulting the Broncos to a 10-6 Wild Card birth.

For those scoring at home, Kyle Orton's one-year extension for 2011 is for $9 million. His two-year total now will be over $12 million.

Anyone who suggests Quinn is superior to Cassel at anything other than taking vaguely gay pictures should be castrated. He of the career 66.8 passer rating.

Eugenics has really fallen out of favor, but we really need to give it a 2d look.

Depends on how you want to view it, I guess... do you know what other QBs make in 2010 and 2011?

Over his career, he is 29-19 as a starter with 51 TDs and 39 INTs. Orton completed 62% of his passes last year for more than 3,800 yards with 21 TD / 12 INTs.

Can he do that again this year? Sure - good QBs in the NFL are in the 3,500 yd - 20 TD - 12 INT range. And, yes without Marshall, he can do that in 2010.

This year you have Eli with a salary of $19M, Cassel with $12M... so $8M for Orton in 2011, I just don't see it as a crazy thing when you compare to others.

Orton's 10 games with a passer rating of at least 90 in 2009 tied Denver's single-season record (Elway, '97).

Orton for his career in red zone: 39 TDs to only 3 INTs - 5th best among current NFL QBs.

Kyle "Pro Bowl" Orton's 3,802 passing yards with Broncos in 2009 marked the 12th most in NFL history by a player in 1st yr w/team.

2007
He was placed third on the Browns' depth chart behind Charlie Frye and Derek Anderson. However, after a dismal 34-7 defeat to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1, Charlie Frye was traded to the Seattle Seahawks for a sixth round draft pick, moving Quinn to second on the Brown's depth chart. On December 30, 2007, when Anderson hurt his pinky and wrist, Quinn made his official NFL debut in the Browns' final game of the season against the San Francisco 49ers. Although going 3 for 8 passing Quinn led the Browns to the redzone, but failed to score, in part due a dropped pass to Kellen Winslow. However there was speculation that the Browns would trade Anderson to get back into the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft, Browns' general manager, Phil Savage, later stated that he hoped to sign Anderson, and keep both quarterbacks for the 2008 season.

2008
After having a Pro-Bowl season and leading the Browns to a 10-6 record, Derek Anderson was named the starting quarterback for the 2008 season, leaving Quinn on the sidelines once again. However, after a mediocre 3-5 start by the team, coach Romeo Crennel chose Quinn to be the starting quarterback for the Browns' game against the Denver Broncos. Though he played quite well, and helped the Browns build a two-touchdown lead into the third quarter, the Broncos rallied back to win, ruining Quinn's first official start. However, he went on to win the next game against the Buffalo Bills. Unfortunately, he also broke his finger during this victory, and though he tried to play through it during the next game against the Houston Texans, he announced on November 25 that he would have surgery, sidelining him for the rest of the 2008 season. The Browns would go on to lose their last 6 games of the season and end with a dismal 4-12 record.

2009
Soon after the season was over, Romeo Crennel was fired as Cleveland's head coach. He was replaced by former New York Jets' coach Eric Mangini, who was unsure of who would be the Browns's starting quarterback. Thus, a competition for the starting job between Quinn and Anderson occurred throughout the offseason. Since he had only started in 3 games at that point, Quinn was still considered "unproven" in the NFL, and thus many fans rooted for him to win the job. Four days before the Browns's 2009 opener, it was announced that Quinn would be the starter. Brady continued to be the Browns' starter until Game 3 against the Baltimore Ravens, when he was benched at halftime in favor of Anderson. The following week, Mangini decided to make Anderson the starter. Quinn did not see action again until Week 8, when he was brought in with three minutes to go in a 30-6 loss against the Chicago Bears. As the Browns headed into their bye week, it was not indicated who would be starting for the rest of the season. However, it was announced five days before their Week 10, Monday Night Football game against the Baltimore Ravens that Quinn was once again being awarded the starting quarterback position. Eric Mangini indicated that Quinn's continued hard work, determination, and growth, even while sitting on the bench, were major factors in his decision to give Brady the position back.[citation needed] Though he struggled in his first game back, as the Browns were shut out 16-0, Quinn followed it up in Week 11 with his best professional outing yet, throwing for 304 yards with 4 touchdowns against the Detroit Lions. The Browns later defeated the rival Pittsburgh Steelers, Quinn's first win of 2009 as the starting quarterback. The next week the Browns defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 41-34. Quinn's numbers were a pedestrian 10-17 for 66 yards and 2 interceptions. On December 22, the Browns placed Quinn on Injured Reserve for the last 2 games of the season with a foot injury.

I'm not saying that I want Quinn on my team. I have to believe that if Weis wanted him....he would have told Pioli to make a play for him.

I'm also not saying that Quinn is a fucking All-Pro QB. He's a good backup....and should be at least a marginal starter. The kid got fucked over in Cleveland due to management and injuries. And I don't want to hear about playing with two 1st round picks either. Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow aren't shit.

The Broncos certainly crapped the bed the second half of last season. However, Broncos still ended up as the second best team in the AFCW. Now, that might not be saying much, but it's still hella better than 4-12...

Here is a pretty level view on it....

Just in case you didn't know what it means to hedge a bet, this is what it means. The Broncos just hedged their bet on Tim Tebow by at least one year.

Naturally, coach Josh McDaniels emphasized Kyle "Pro Bowl" Orton's improvement as he announced the first big-money contract extension of the veteran quarterback's career this afternoon.

What he didn't say is that it has taken only a couple weeks of training camp and one preseason game to confirm what many NFL talent scouts believed back in April ó that Tebow is not ready to run a pro offense and isn't that close to being ready.

Before Orton signed the one-year extension that will keep him in blue and orange through the 2011 season, he was headed for unrestricted free agency at the end of this season. If the Broncos were willing to accept that situation, that meant they expected somebody else to overtake him as their starting signal-caller within the next year.

Based on what we've seen so far, that's a pretty high-risk bet.

"I think the fact of the matter is Kyle is the starter, has played like the starter, is playing very well and is playing at a different level than Tim or Brady (Quinn) both play at," McDaniels said.

Still, it's a one-year deal, not a multi-year deal. It commits the Broncos to give Tebow at least two years behind a veteran quarterback, which is pretty much the minimum timeframe veteran NFL personnel analysts predicted it would take Tebow to transition to the pro game.

The popular rookie's first NFL game experience, in Saturday's preseason opener at Cincinnati, showcased both his positives and negatives. He displayed not only the competitiveness and determination that make him intriguing, but also the mechanical flaws and high-risk tendencies that make him controversial as an NFL prospect.

If Tebow and Quinn were supposed to provide immediate competition for Orton, that plan failed. Orton is more entrenched as the starter than ever.

What the contrast with the two younger quarterbacks did is convince the Broncos that for the foreseeable future, Orton is still their best bet.
