QUARTERBACKS—CUT THEM LOOSE
Kyle Orton (Denver Broncos)
Throughout the preseason it looked not only like Kyle Orton had claimed the starting quarterback job for the Denver Broncos but that Tim Tebow wouldn’t even get an opportunity. Five weeks into the season and that’s gone out the window. Orton struggled in the first half of last week’s loss to the San Diego Chargers and was replaced by Tebow after halftime. Tebow only completed four of his 10 passes but he had a passing touchdown and a rushing touchdown, and he almost led the Broncos to a come-from-behind win. As of Sunday night there was no word on which quarterback is going to start, but at this point there’s no reason to have any confidence in Orton, who has as many turnovers as he does touchdowns (8).

Kevin Kolb (Arizona Cardinals)
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb started the season well, throwing for 560 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in the first two weeks of the season. Since then he’s thrown for 721 yards with one touchdown and six interceptions the last three weeks. His quarterback rating has dropped each week despite playing two mediocre (at best) pass defenses in the Seattle Seahawks and New York Giants in Weeks 3 and 4, respectively. Kolb may be an attractive option with bye weeks around but he’s gotten worse each week. Plus a quick look at the upcoming schedule shows games with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 7 and Baltimore Ravens in Week 8. If he can’t get it done against the Seahawks or Giants, what makes you think he’ll turn it around against the Steelers or Ravens?
