Late notes: Orton booed in Denver
Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson
New Denver quarterback Kyle Orton was not sharp during a scrimmage at Invesco Field on Thursday night, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette.
Fans were not impressed with the man who is set to take over Denver's offense. Orton was booed after his shaky performance. He's under a lot of pressure to replace Jay Cutler, who was a Pro Bowl player in Denver. If Orton is not sharp in games, I'd imagine the booing is just beginning.
- Meanwhile, Cutler thinks Chicago is a better football city than Denver. Orton disagreed. This, of course, was before Thursday night.
- The Chargers think they may not be able to sell out all of their home games and there may be some local television blackouts. The Chargers came close to blackouts last season but managed to sell out games. I don't get it. The Chargers are a good team. They should sell out games easily.
- Receiver Javon Walker may be close to hitting the practice field in Oakland.
