In 2010 Kyle Orton has, to the surprise of many, developed into one of the NFL's most productive quarterbacks.
Unfortunately for Orton, this has not translated into wins, and former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels has already faced the axe.
Due to a rib injury, Tim Tebow has been handed the starting job for Week 15 in Denver, and, barring any major meltdowns on his part, Tebow looks set to keep the job for the remainder of the season.
Unfortunately for Orton, it appears that he may be traded or even cut, as soon as a new permenant head coach is named by the Broncos.
You know what they say, new coach, new qb.
And, as much as I don't like it, Many fans are already speculating that Josh McDaniels could be brought in as the Cardinals offensive coordinator and chief offensive play caller in 2011, and if this happens, Kyle Orton could follow hot on his heels.
McDaniels and Orton have developed a rapport this year, and if McDaniels joined the Cardinals and, if Orton was cut or shopped, few would be surprised to hear that the Cardinals was a potential home for him.
I must admit, I like Orton, I had him in my fantasy lineup this year, and he was by far my most dependable player.
I like his ability to complete tough passes and spread the ball around, and, even with the loss of Anquan Boldin, few teams have as much depth at receiver as the Arizona Cardinals.
He is not a perfect fit, by any means.
Like Derek Anderson, he has been known for turning over the ball a little too often, and the Cardinals have not proven that they yet have the strength of character to overcome unexpected changes of momentum.
What's more, in spite of his good stats, with the Broncos, who are arguably a more well-rounded team than Arizona, Orton was unable to turn the team around, and they now look set to finish 2010 with even fewer wins than the Cardinals.
However, as far as bonus options go, I think he's a pretty good one.
So, what do you think? Who do you want to see starting in Arizona in 2011?
