08:05 AM ET 12.23 | Only four months into his Broncos career, Kyle Orton is holding a clipboard. Rookie Tim Tebow has replaced him, not only for Sunday's game, but most likely for good. Orton, who sat out last Sunday's game at Oakland because of a rib injury, said Wednesday he believes he will be healthy enough to play the final two games but has been told Tebow will get the nod. ... "Like I've said, I don't think anything I've done with my play warrants anything other than that. But they've made the decision, and I'm not going to fight the decision. It's the decision. I'll just prepare myself to play."

Gee, I thought he'd be thrilled to lose his job.

Gotta love these clipboard holders this season.

Orton to Minnesota? You know, they could do worse.

Lot's of words and no story. Yawn! The pic is a bit entertaining. Looks like he's trying to make the most out of a nail being driven into his foot!

Yeah.. He's gonna have to fight for his job next year or want out.

The Vikes would probably settle for Cowboy Bob Orton next year.

I'd give them Cowboy Tony Romo for a few picks.

Tebow won't give up the starting gig next season. He'll put in the work to be the best in Mile High.

Orton speaks blasphemy!

so...the ex starting QB doesn't embrace new starting QB....un heard of!

I don't think Viking fans would ever approve another trade with our heroes.

I'm pretty ticked off Orton isn't playing too. I got my big $$ league fantasy football superbowl this week and my two qbs, Orton and McNabb are both riding pine!!! Had to pick up Rex Grossman! I get sick just typing that. And to think I started the season with Drew Brees but traded him for LT cuz I needed a running back really bad. of course LT was doing good at the time and Brees was doing ok but Orton was a beast this year. I haven't even taken that sorry poopbutt mcnabb of the bench all season.

Kinda like McDaniels losing his, too little, too late.

Ugh, If you are going to do a synopsis of the Denver Post article, at least get it right. Orton signed an extension 4 months ago, his broncos career is a year and a half old.
