  • Broncos coach John Fox has a vague idea who will start at quarterback for his team next season. But he is positive about one thing: "I prefer a gamer to a good practice player.”
  • In regards to Redskins QB John Beck, ESPN.com’s Dan Graziano is pretty sure the Redskins aren’t trying to tank the season in order to grab Andrew Luck No. 1 in the 2012 draft.
  • Former Redskins coach Joe Gibbs is going to be holding a reunion for those he coached from 1981-92 in Huntersville, N.C. Hopefully, all the cool kids will be fat and balding and all the nerds will have hot wives.
  • The Steelers have held training camp at St. Vincent College for the past 45 seasons. The organization and the school, if at all possible, would like to continue the streak, assuming the lockout is lifted in time.

Hot Routes 7.8.11: Tebow, Orton or Quinn?

Orton is not the best QB, BY FAR!  He may be the most experienced, and he may have a pretty good arm (although it's questionable whether or not his arm is better than Quinn, and we haven't seen enough of Tebow in the NFL to compare them, but using College stats, Tebow has a much better arm.)  But there is much more to being a great QB than being able to throw a ball.  Perhaps the greatest job of a QB is leadership, and Orton stinks!  As long as Denver is ahead, he can do alright, but as soon as Denver starts to get behind, Orton folds and the team folds with him.  Tebow, on the other hand, when the team starts to fall behind, gets fired up and the team gets more energetic as they fall in line behind him.  Orton will be able to win more games only as long as the rest of the team can keep him on top.  Tebow will win those games when the team needs a leader to follow!

Career paths of Britt and Austin similar? I didn't know Austin gets arrested every couple of weeks for drugs, speeding and resisting arrest.

Knock on Tebow all you want.  He started in college and was a proven winner, the writters and ESPN all raved about his while he was there, not a comment from anyone about how k"he'll never make it in the NFL", not once, why?, because it would have ruined the ratings for every game he was in.  Before the draft all of a sudden he can't play the position for all these reasons.  Well then how was he that good in college?  And why wasn't it reported?  Come on Experts, let's hear it.  The guy is working to improve, he may not be the next Manning (Peyton that is) or Brady, but he'll turn out to be a really good QB.

i think we all know he is going to go with Tebow. They will sell more for a while, till they find out he isn't that good. Trade Quinn for a 4th or 5th is what they really should do. All of this is covering up the real fact: Orton is the best quarterback they have. Tebow is a nice guy and all, but he is not and most likely won't be. All of those in love with him, that is fine. But he can be a great guy and just an ok quarterback. Almost all the analysts can see it; he has the intangibles, but not the tangibles.

If Fox is at all smart anymore, Orton will be the guy at the start of the season.
