    Orton to start for Bears

    I don't think I've seen this mentioned here since it was announced, and I'm getting tired of talking about the Olympics and the Hawks, so where are the Bears fans out there? How do you feel about Orton getting the start over Grossman?

    It doesn't matter who starts, they are both inept. Eventually we will get a real QB in Chicago.

    That reminds me of the same kind of faith that it takes to believe that the Cubs will actually win the World Series. Next year.

    That's been the offseason motto for roughly 60 years now

    Re: Orton to start for Bears

    As much as I appriciate a good rivalry the Bears have not had a good solid QB since Johnny Lujack. If McMahon could have stayed healthy he could have been very good but we all know how that turned out. For some reason some franchises are known for certian positions. Chicago is know for middle linbackers (Bill George, Dick Butkus, Mike Singletary, Brian Urlacher) and definatly not QBs.

    Re: Orton to start for Bears

    It wouldn't matter if Brady or Manning were behind that O Line, until the line improves, the Bears will continue their inept ways on offense.

    All this means for Orton is that he'll have the opportunity to be Freeney's first decleater of the season

    Re: Orton to start for Bears

    Orton is and has been better than Grossman IMO. Just never got a fair shake before. Glad to see he is this year

    Re: Orton to start for Bears

    Don't forget with their #1 draft pick more then likely gone for the season (Herniated disk) The LT tackle position that needed a serious upgrade is now worse off then last year. Just think, they get to see Jarder Allen twice this year to boot.

    It's too bad Meyer didn't go to the bears, he would probably be starting/ sarcasm.

    If Phillip Bates could have gone pro he'd surely win the job!
