Two Little (ex)Bears

Call it “The Anti-Cutler”
Kyle Orton, a player I like quite a bit, was routinely booed by a record-Broncos practice crowd after throwing a couple bad interceptions.  I wrote it when the deal was made but I’ll say it again: Orton is not going to do well in Josh McDaniels’ offensive system.  It is deep drop, read-the-field, quick delivery stuff and Orton needs an uncomplicated, first-look approach.  I’m going to root for him but I see some bad days ahead.

Booker in the ATL
Marty Booker signed with the Atlanta Falcons – the team I’ll be predicting to finish in last place in the NFC South.  Roddy White isn’t coming to camp.  Harry Douglas is lost for the season.  Michael Jenkins is Michael Jenkins.  Tony Gonzalez isn’t young.  In the last two days, the Falcons have signed Robert Ferguson and Marty Booker.  This would be a banner week in 2001.
