Why Kyle Orton Will Have a Better Season Than Jay Cutler

The Bears finally pick up a potential franchise QB. Jay Cutler is potentially one of the best young QB's in the NFL.

But what can he do when his best weapon is Devin Hester?

Then the O-line in Chicago is consistently deteriorating. The defense is getting worse every year, and is consistently getting injured. His only capable HB is Forte and (unless they draft one) will have to carry the load this season.

But something that is very important has not been in question between Cutler and Kyle Orton. Leadership. Cutler has the physical tools to be the best QB in the Nfl, but he has not shown the leadership to lead a team to a come from behind win.

Then Orton is sent, along with two first round picks to Denver.

Where his weapons at wideout include Brandon Marshall, Eddie Royal, Jabar Gaffney, Chad Jackson, and Brandon Stokely.

His weapons at halfback include J.J. Arrington, Selvin Young, Correl Buckhalter, Lamont Jordan, Alex Haynes, Andre Hall, P.J. Pope, and Ryan Torain.

He also has one of the best O-lines in the league. The defense isn't the greatest, but it's better than Chicago's. All Orton is missing is a franchise HB, but at least they have depth.

Now it's time to talk about Orton's leadership. He showed last season the ability to come through in the clutch. Especially against division opponents.

The Bears won five of there nine wins by four points or less. Orton didn't throw for many touchdowns, but when he needed too he came through.
