    It's also telling that they're attending pro days for some of the top QBs expected to go in the early rounds. They don't usually do that.

    As Parcells used to say about older players, "Once you think about retiring, you're already retired."

    True, but that was the case last year, too. And the year before, etc.

    You mean they have not looked at QBs in the draft since Jason was here until now. Like they never had interest in weeden, Dalton or Russell and a those are just off the top of my head.

    I call bs.

    This is a QB who had success in the nfl.
    Even though we lost that last game. He looked like he wanted to win and wasn't just watching the clock.

    I hope Orton comes back because I definitely think he's gonna have to play this season. I loved the way he was drawing the Eagles offside with his hard count. I haven't heard a hard count like that in Dallas since Aikman or maybe Bledsoe. Tony needs to implement that more in his game.

    If the backup is "gonna have to play", then they might want to just tank the season, get a top 10 or top 5 pick and draft a QB. The majority of top QBs over the years have been top 10 picks. The ones that aren't get a lot of press (i.e. Brady was a 6th), but the majority are 1st round picks and usually in the top 10.

    He' s sort of a Steve Berlline type of QB..Aikman's old backup.

    Serviceable for several games if needed.

    Which he may.

    They should cut him and draft a new kicker. He contract has killed the salary cap. Etc and so on .........

    Your theory would be the correct one.

    I like the fact that we have Orton, as a vet he can be ready at a moment’s notice and not get over whelmed by what the defense is showing him. I felt he did a pretty good job in the Philly game things did not work out but he gave us a real chance.

    That second sentence simply isn't true at all, with Tony we win that game and Orton held the offense down.

    Orton is really looking at his bank account , while holding clipboard and saying "wow" I'm making this much money for doing this"- "America really is the land of opportunity".

    When you have the pictures he has floating around the internet, you're not a serious person and someone who takes life seriously. OP has a point.

    No way of knowing. Orton put up 358 yards passing he did not hold the offense down
