Harder Offense, Better Orton?

Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune writes today that Kyle Orton has a better chance of success in Denver, because the Broncos’ offense is more difficult than the Bears.

Really?  I’ve been reading football stories for 30 years (hate to say that but it’s true) and this is the first time I’ve ever read that a more difficult offensive system will make a marginal quarterback better.

Always interesting.

  1. Isn’t Orton’s greatest weakness (oxymoron?) that he stares down his receivers? In a more complicated offense, wouldn’t that just get worse? So far it has, but I’m just a sales guy that dabbles in poor football analysis so what do I know?

  2. dan pompei really must be brilliant or off his rocker. how can a difficult scheme help anyone out. the old saying of KISS applies to almost everything. and i would put football in that category. if you can run the ball everytime for 4 yrds than thats all you do. you start all that extra crap when you cant do the simple things. i dont think that kyle will do well there at all. its more of a passing team where kyle will most likely show his flaws then when he was in chicago. cutler will most likely have a down yr as far as stats but a better QB rating.

  3. Can somebody please go to the offensive coordinators house and punch him in the face…..
