McD Calls Kyle, Confirms He's Still Our Starter (for now)

It would seem that this answers the question of how McD currently views Quinn's role on the team - as a project we obtained at a relatively low price.  Still, if Kyle performs poorly in camp and or in the preaseason and Quinn is tearing it up, Kyle's seat could get warm in a hurry.  In light of this development, however, I anticipate that Kyle will be under center on opening day in 2010. 

As stated on rotoworld:


"SI.com's Peter King reports that Broncos coach Josh McDaniels called Kyle Orton immediately after Sunday's trade for Brady Quinn to inform Orton he's still the team's starting quarterback.  There's little doubt that Orton will take the first snap at OTAs, but he's still going to have to out-practice and outperform Quinn in exhibition games to stay atop the depth chart. McDaniels may view Quinn as his long-term pet project. With better physical tools, Quinn offers more upside than Orton."
