Is it ridiculously early? Yes. Do the Broncos still have a ton of tough matchups in their remaining slate of eleven games? Absolutely.
But if Pro Bowls were determined after five weeks of the season, Kyle Orton would be in the conversation.
Your given in the AFC is Peyton Manning. After that, it’s a multiple-man contest for the last two spots, with Joe Flacco, Matt Schaub, Philip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger, Carson Palmer, and Tom Brady all making strong cases.
Let’s take a look at the numbers. Among those listed, Kyle Orton is:
- 1st in winning percentage (1.00)
- 1st in interceptions (1)
- 3rd in passer rating (97.4)
- 4th in touchdowns (7)
- 4th in completion percentage (63.0)
- 6th in yds/game (247.2)
Is Kyle Orton Pro Bowl bound? Did we trade a 2008 Pro Bowler for a 2009 one, plus picks? Maybe. Let us know your thoughts in the poll and in the comments.
