    Seems screwy unless KC is giving up draft picks as well. :shades:

    bleacherreport story, so taken with a huge pinch of salt...

    Plus the Cards are not getting rid of Leinart at the moment (he even looked quite impressive against the Packers!)

    Unless there are picks involved, it makes no sense. I'm voting this is absolute rubbish.

    It's probably a bunch of bull-butter. But for grins, I reckon the Cards would rake in some nice draft picks in this deal.

    From what I've seen of him this preseason has been less than stellar, to say the least. I've noticed McTradethefranchise totally reaming Orton out several times.

    It sucks for Orton. My Dad went to Purdue so I tend to keep a peripheral eye out for them during the season. I've always liked Orton. Good guy, average QB.

    Your dad is a yankee sumbitch??? Boooooooo!! J/K.

    I don't dislike Orton, I was taking more of a shot at the Broncos organization. They have fouled up their offseason.

    Dad's from Cincy and Mom's from Ft Wayne, Ind.

    Oh, no doubt. The Broncos made the biggest gaffe I've seen in quite some time. That's why I called McDaniels McTradethefranchise

    I don't think anybody believes that Orton is the long-term answer for the Broncos, although it's pretty up in the air as to how many believe Leinart would be (and the guy that about 99.99% believed was is now wearing a Chicago Bears uni).

    On another front, there's a big question as to whether Orton's injured index finger is going to allow him to start the season (and being from the Belichick school releasing information, McDaniel is shedding no light on the situation).

    If Orton is out, so is Chris Sims, and that means the Broncos start the season with Tom Brandstater at QB (Whoopee!).

    Ha, believe it or not, I used to have fun up there when I was a youngin. It didn't hurt that my Grandparents had a lake house on Sno Lake that we'd drive up to. Fun times!

    Natti?? There's a lot of rednecks there believe it or not. Went there to see the Texans v. Bengals game our second season. Getting pelted in the back of the head for 4 quartes with chunks of ice was no fun.

    They put chili on pasta there *vomits* and White Castle wasn't all that.

    PFT was reporting that Orton had an open dislocation of the finger.

    "Orton suffered on Sunday night an "open dislocation" of his finger, which is delicate medical talk for a bone twisting so severely that it ripped through the flesh and the skin surrounding it."

    I can't see how that would be healed quickly.....

    Why would you trade Boldin for Marshal? One gets upset and complains a little, the other throws a temper tantrum. No way. At all.

    Spent a couple weeks there on business one time. The cabbie pointed out that little piece of trivia and it always struck me as funny.

    Asked the hotel front desk for a restaurant recommendation one time and they directed me to a Mexican place LOL. Ended up have a good time one night at the Oktoberfest.

    I've been there several times when I was younger. He still has a brother and sister living there, as well as a few cousins of mine. I don't think we ever went into the city. It was always a boring trip for me compared to Ft. Wayne and going to the Lake.

    Probably because you weren't stoned.

    I think the odds would be in your favor locating some local tree.

    I don't know anyone there and I wasn't about to walk the streets of downtown Cincinatti (although we were staying across the river in Covington KY).
