AFC West links: Orton needs to win

Denver Broncos

Broncos safety David Bruton has turned to substitute teaching for $90 per day in his hometown of Miamisburg, Ohio. "I'm just trying to keep busy," Bruton said.

In an interview with the National Football Post, Broncos executive John Elway said last year's starting quarterback, Kyle Orton, needs to win more games. "Kyle has had good numbers, but we haven’t won a lot of football games, that’s the bottom line. That’s a reflection of you as a quarterback whether you want it or not. I take it as a responsibility of that quarterback."
