Kyle Orton remains the Denver Broncos' starting quarterback, and Brady Quinn is going to have to unseat him if he wants to be the one under center when the season starts in six months.
"He is our starter. There is no question," coach Josh McDaniels said of his incumbent at the AFC coaches' breakfast at Orlando, Fla., on Tuesday, reiterating what he's been saying both privately and publicly since acquiring Quinn from the Cleveland Browns on March 13.
McDaniels said Orton deserves to keep his job based on his performance last season, when he threw for 3,802 yards and 21 touchdowns with 12 interceptions.
That said, he's also saying Orton has to keep his job through his play and performance.
