#9. Kyle Orton (Quarterback, Denver Broncos)
Although the Broncos struggled through the 2010 season with an abysmal 4-12 record, finishing dead last in the AFC West, it wasn’t due to the quarterback. A throw in from the Bears to the Broncos in a trade for Jay Cutler in 2009, Orton has gone on to out throw Cutler in yards and QB rating over the past two years.
He’s had to deal with a prima donna wide receiver Brandon Marshal, and has been over shadowed in Denver by Tim Tebow, who some claim might give Orton a run for his money for the starting job. Of course, Orton’s huge arm will have something to say about that.
