By not leaving our defense on the field the whole ****ing game, they played better. Orton isn't the answer but he showed what even an average QB could do for this team.
I knew someone would post truth and that I didnt need to.
there is a clear reason that the team played with more energy with Orton at QB and anyone that has played the game at a high, organized level knows that when you have a QB, you give max effort because you know that you dont want to be the reason the team lost.
With a guy like Cassel, you don't have much hope of actually winning games and that takes away your field energy.
