I do not understand this at all.....why not keep him for the rest of the season?  The Broncos have an outside chance at the playoffs, why not keep him as insurance?   If they think so little of him, why not trade him earlier in the year?
 
STUPID!!!
 
 
So where does Orton go?   KC,  Houston, or the Bears?   (that is the waiver order)

My understanding is that they are doing this now so as to cut their (financial) losses.  If some team picks him up, which is HIGHLY LIKELY given the predicaments, say, the Bears and Chiefs find themselves in, the Donkos will save $2.5 million.

Manning's soaring Mile High!  From "The REAL Feed":
 
With Peyton Manning in, Broncos exploring trade for Tim Tebow
NFL.com (19.03.2012 11:18)
A source has told NFL Network's Albert Breer that the Broncos are exploring a trade for Tim Tebow.

 
I think that they have, alas, got someone who can play in the shadow, quite literally, of John Elway.  Peyton can stand chest-to-chest with John.  Tebow, however, will in all likelihood be sent packing, and I must admit that that bums me out. I would like it if they could keep them both.

Just throwing this out there, provocative though I know it will be...  I do preface, though, that, as many of you onlookers know, I am an avid Broncomaniac and Manning fan (who isn't?).  I also have Manning on my squad.
 
Nevertheless, with all that said, given Manning's age (37 soon going on 38), could he become arm weary late in the season?  And, if so, should he be put on a sort of "pitch count"?  Whatchyas think?

I think they are doing that...but only when they are winning by ALOT.  
They sat him down in the 4th Quarter the other night when they we up by 40 or so.
I can see much more of that in the future months from the way that team is hitting on all cylinders.
I think that is all they will do to him.

I have never heard of that in football.  In baseball, younger pitchers may be on a pitch count because you don't want to increase your throws per year by more than 20%.  However, baseball pitches throw as hard as they can for about 100 pitches over 30-35 starts.
 
In football, they play 16 games, throw the ball 20-40 times and are not throwing as hard as they can.  Maybe it is an issue but I never heard any mention of this as an issue.
 
I think they take out Manning with a big lead in the 4th so he doesn't get popped.  Doubt it has anything to do with arm weariness.
