ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - His coach, offensive coordinator and even some teammates shy away from the term "game manager" when talking about Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton, figuring it has a negative tenor.
He embraces the term and doesn't see it as an insult at all.
Orton's style is a far cry from his predecessor, Pro Bowl passer Jay Cutler, who famously bragged that his arm was stronger than Hall of Famer John Elway's and often seemed intent on proving just that.
Orton isn't nearly as exciting as Cutler, but he's certainly been more efficient and effective so far.
