Kyle Orton returns to Soldier Field in unexpected fashion, as a Kansas City Chief.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The NFL has a problem with its trading deadline. It occurs too early in the season.
If you'd care to see a poster child for this dilemma, look no further than Kyle Orton.
It's not that Orton has done anything controversial or really, anything at all to put himself in this odd spotlight.
Just about a month ago, he was a struggling starting quarterback in Denver. But then...
Earlier last week, NFL quarterback Kyle Orton was placed on waivers by the Denver Broncos and eventually picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs.
So, the guys over at Landlocked Pioneers decided to get "Fake Kyle Orton" to say his goodbyes to Denver:
Having spent his first four years in Chicago, Chiefs QB Kyle Orton has an intimate understanding of Chicago's defensive system, around which Kansas City will likely devise their game plan.

Kyle Orton’s first play as a Kansas City Chief was one to forget. Orton, the quarterback acquired off waivers from the Broncos, came in to try to give the Chiefs a spark after starter Tyler Palko could do absolutely nothing. But on Orton’s first play, the Chiefs ran a flea-flicker, the Bears weren’t fooled, and…
At the beginning of the second quarter in their 10-3 victory over the Chicago Bears, the Kansas City Chiefs put quarterback Kyle Orton onto the field in a real game for the first time since they claimed him on waivers on November 23rd.

Kyle Orton replaced Tyler Palko as the Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback for the first play of the second quarter, injured a finger on his right hand and had to leave the game. His return was questionable.
Donovan McNabb must have shaken his head as watched he watched contending NFL team vie for Kyle Orton. The Chicago Bears, Houston Texans and possibly the Dallas Cowboys put in claims for Orton when the Denver Broncos waived him as a victim of Tebow-mania.
Those are the very teams on McNabb's Christmas wish list in his hoped to revive his dead-end career.
In a surprise to absolutely...
It’s a pretty lackluster slate of early games. Ordinarily, Pats-Colts is a delightful late-season hatefest; this year, the Pats are three-touchdown favorites, the first 20+ point favorites in an NFL game since 2007. Denver-Minnesota might have been interesting if Von Miller and Adrian Peterson were playing (they’re not). And depending on Tyler Palko’s performance against the...
