seriously wdf orton had 1 good year in denver and that was last year, he got benched for a quarterback who went 2/9 in a pro football game. I believe Kaepernick wuld be the better option short term as well as long term if necessary

Some of you totally missed the point. I wasn't saying replace Smith with Orton. I'm saying having him as a back-up if Smith goes down. I like Kaep, but do you really think he's capable of stepping in with 3 total career pass attempts and leading us to the championship? At least Orton has won some games.
wonder how it would have turned out if we did get him right after the lockout ended...but wow Orton fell pretty far, I wonder what was the point of Denver releasing Orton and why they did it? didn't make much sense
