These are Kyle Orton's fourth-quarter stats this season: 29-for-42 (69 percent) for 511 yards, four touchdown, no interceptions and a 142.1 passer rating. I wouldn't call that game managing. Orton is another guy who could end up being only a restricted free agent rather than an unrestricted, based on whether or not there is a CBA extension by March (very unlikely at this point), but regardless it makes sense for both sides to explore an extension. Getting Orton signed at a manageable figure won't preclude drafting and developing a young quarterback at some point, and the Broncos might not be poised to pick too high for at least this year, anyway. All the guy has done is win football games, and, if I recall correctly, that's pretty much what this whole thing is about.
