A statistical review of Orton's 2010 season

Thanks to BroncoPH, I had a chance to look at some really interesting pieces of data that one could use to analyze what the Broncos have or don't have in KO. This is not intended to be a post to denigrate KO or to glorify TT. The numbers below are presented without comment for the MHR community (those who haven't already bothered to look them up) to evaluate.

Draw your our conclusions and remember the context in terms of running game and offensive line play.

So first the normally expressed stats that even John Madden can understand - 13 games, 498 attempts, 293 completions, 58.8% completion, 3635 yds, 20 TD, 9 INT
