I knew I should have kept Mendenhall or Ocho over this chump. Unbelievable. Every piece of his situation going into the season pointed towards him having a good year. Every piece.

Royal was good because of Cutler...McDaniels mixes it up equal to 5-7 receivers a game.. If not for the Marshall's absolutely unbelievable catch, what kind of game would he have had..Not too good either..I see lots of receivers getting 2-3 catches each and 20-40 yards each for the Broncs. The best Bronco play is their Defense!!..Drop him!

Except the piece where Kyle Orton is his Quarterback...

I'm not sure that explains everything as Orton had 240 passing yards including 2 td passes this week and still Royal was a royal POS.

I heard he is being sent to the Argonauts for a case of footballs and a pump. You might try to work a similar deal.


The deal fell through when Argonauts equipment manager stopped for a coffee and got a better deal at Tim Hortons.

Kyle Orton said Wednesday that he has no chemistry issues with Eddie Royal, despite Royal's poor statistics through four weeks.
"I think at some point he is going to break out and have a big game," Orton said. "I think Eddie and I have probably the best rapport with all of our receivers. We would love to get him the ball more." Royal has just eight catches for 58 yards and needs to stay on benches until he turns it around.

Lol a big game to Orton is Royal getting one catch for 50 yards. How's he going to have a big game when Orton can't make the big plays?

Neat little screen plays or reverse handoffs.

One of the radio stations here in Chicago said "Orton is still blessed by the Football Angel flying over his head. It won't be long now before it gets tired or bored and leaves him altogether." He's been the recipient of LUCK and of good defense. Sound familiar? The same thing happened to him and Grossman here in Chicago. 240 and 2 tds is NOT his NORM.

Eddie Royal was great because he had a strong armed QB who liked to try to make things happen... liked to improvise. Like Cutler or hate him, that's part of his whole bag. Orton likes to try to make things happen too. But it comes out floaty and intercepty. He doesn't lose many games per season for a team. But he is NOT the force that makes those teams WIN either. He never has been. Eddie Royal is a problem because he's NOT a monster like Marshall. Eddie needs to be a burner. Eddie is now basically what Devin Hester was last year, as a receiver.

Anyone who thinks that Orton is not a big step down from Cutler in the sense of his FF-significant output will need to revisit this thread later this season. I guarantee it all comes crashing down.
