Yeah, that is a major problem IMHO. Not keeping Orton made no sense to me. Some might say he was worried about creating a QB controversy, and I get that, but if your QB doesn't have the confidence in himself to raise his play in the face of competition for the job, then he probably isn't the right guy anyway!

If Pioli intentionally engineered it as "Cassel or Moe, Larry or Curly", then that's a big strike against him IMHO. I have no idea what Orton was looking for, or what other backup options there were, but that would definitely not fly in my book if he did that on purpose.
