You can argue the merits of Kyle Orton as an NFL quarterback, but one thing he's unlikely to ever be called by anyone is "exciting." Tim Tebow, at the current moment, is certainly not a good NFL quarterback, but the way people get excited about him is, as highlighted in the above picture, sometimes a little bit past rational.
Orton went 2-for-6 for 37 yards in Denver's preseason opener against Dallas. Tebow went 6-for-7 for 91 yards. Those meaningless numbers aren't going to make things easier for anybody.
