3 Out Of 4 KC Chiefs Fans Approve Of Kyle Orton Move

The Kansas City Chiefs shook things up on Thanksgiving weekend when they acquired Kyle Orton off the waiver wire following his release from the Denver Broncos. Orton now enters a Chiefs quarterback group that includes Tyler Palko and Ricky Stanzi (with Matt Cassel on IR).

The most simple way to look at this, in my mind, is whether Orton is an upgrade over Palko. Many of us think that's the case so it's no surprise to see the final results of our approval poll on the Orton move.

With about 2,700 votes in, 76 percent of our readers approved of the move to acquire Orton. 11 percent do not approve of the move 11 percent responded they weren't sure yet.

That's about what I expected. The vibe I've gotten from the fan base, which our poll supports, is that there are far more Chiefs fans who think this is the best move for the team right now.
