Orton Sticking As Starting QB for the Bills

So long as it’s his call, Bills coach Doug Marrone is sticking with veteran journeyman quarterback Kyle Orton as his starter for the remainder of the season, the Associated Press reports.

What has suddenly become unclear is whether that decision rests solely with Marrone.

“If you’re asking me personally, my decision is that he’s going to play,” the second-year coach said, referring to Orton after practice Wednesday. “If you ask somebody else, they might tell you something different, I don’t know.”

The exchange was prompted after Marrone was asked if his approach to starting Orton over second-year quarterback EJ Manuel might change if the Bills (7-6) drop out of playoff contention after hosting the Green Bay Packers (10-3) on Sunday.

“No, not for me,” Marrone said, before adding, “unless it changes for somebody else.”

He didn’t specify who he was referring to. He then reiterated that it’s “my decision.”
