Kyle Orton is a new man

Full story: Chicago Tribune

You still can Google Kyle Orton 's name and see that the first available link is a picture of the Bears' quarterback holding a whiskey bottle.

"but in the end they opted for solid over spectacular"

ROFL. Solid is not a word I would use to describe Orton or Grossman. At least not yet. Once again the Bears showed they have no clue how to put together an offensive gameplan, in season or off season.

is "what kind of freaking name" Lovie...smith gone yet!?!?!?!? Sheesh..As long as this numbskull is still the so called coach of the Chicago Bears ..... It's useless to think about anything good for the year...plus the bears will be BORING to watch.

Oh and every squirrel finds a nut once in a while...so, dont count on a win because the bears played well or lovie coached well

My god David, how much of the Orton koolaid did you drink? You have a very high opinion of a QB who's arguably second best 3 game straight stint in his career (he had a better three straight games in mid 2005) still left him at the bottom of the NFl in almost every passing average.

But yes, please continue the same thing you have done all season and play on the screams of the Orton fans for the popular QB pick in Chicago and try and convince normally rational thinkers that somehow Kyle Orton is a very good QB.

And it really helps to dispel that his past is in the past when the first four paragraphs are about his past antics, you dolt of a writer!

I'll say this about Orton: he's never been spotted in a strip club at 3am with a bunch of his gun-totin' posse, jumping into a pimp mobile.

I would describe Grossman and Orton as solid. I know they're neither liquid nor gas.

No its not like we are Orton Fans as much as we wanted Rex out of there because short, slow, and stupid is no way to go through life when youre trying to play QB in the NFL...

Orton is currently an average QB that has the opportunity to grow into a good QB. Nobody is saying he is a good QB right now but everyone is hoping he will become a good QB this year.

More Bear-bashing from you so called fans. SMH (~_~)

What you must understand is this. Orton gives us the the best chance to win. He's out-played and showed better leadership than Rex. And plus, Rex has had more than enough chances to show what he can do and he blew it. Now it Kyle's turn. And we TRUE BEARS FANS are hoping that he does well. If you wimps think it's going to be a long season and that we're going to go 3-13 or whatever lame predictions, you should go take up water polo. That's a real sport.(~_^)

There is no doubt that Orton deserves a full year to develop as a quarterback. So many people were surprised by his arm in his pre-season performance earlier this year. Where have you so-called football fans been? He starred at nearby Purdue and always demonstrated a very strong arm, a good sense for the game, and continual improvement. People want to judge him by the limited way he was allowed to play during his rookie year. That was due to him just learning the offense, having no experience, and having no Offensive Coordinator to speak of. Many of the very good qurterbacks historically have been 3rd to 5th rounders, especially when ALLOWED to mature as individuals and players.

David, are you on the Bear's payroll? Why can't anyone say what everyone is thinking? The Bears are going to be even worse than they were last season. With a bad o line, bad quarterback, bad receivers, an old creaky defense, and an arrogant head coach, 3-5 wins is all I can see. At least I'll be able to schedule my Sunday naps right after kickoff..

After his 2005 season, Orton spent a well-chronicled amount of time drinking heavily. After his 2008 season, you will.

Regretfully, average is not what Kyle Orton is. Extrapolate his hard numbers from last season over a full 16 games (while doing the same with every other QB that started in 2007) and you have a Qb that is either in the bottom 2/3rds of the NFL, or at the very bottom of the NFL. Average is in the middle.

We do NOT have a QB that has the ability to become a good QB from an average QB. We have a QB that has, at the best, a shot to become just below mediocre at the position, and we have a bunch of fans that think that is a great place for him to be.

Following the Mariotti thinking that the Orton should be our QB simply because he isn't Grossman is sheer lunacy.

Slow. Weak arm. Restless feet in pocket. Dink. Dunk. Interception. Boring. Boring. Boring. Put the Whiskey back in his hand and take the football away. He is awful.

This article is a good example of how the media is on professional sport's payroll. It's making a claim that Orton is good, even though the numbers show how awful he is. For all those fans who are angry that the Bears put together another terrible offense stay mad! Don't try to let articles like these put hope in your hands for this offense's season.

"The Bears would agree that Orton is good for the environment."

If he doesn't speed up his delivery, Orton will be plenty green from grass stains -- not to mention black N blue.

Party Animal and Liberal ... shocking!
I hear Kwame Kilpatrick is another partying liberal Democrat...how's that working out for him?

It is funny how you noobs think you can predict someone's future. Orton has the potential to be a good QB in this league. And when he does, I hope all you doubters go and bury your heads in your asses.

like i always say, "i'll believe it when i see it". i really couldn't careless if he's grown "mature" or whatever...i never had a problem with his supposed party guy ways anyway. he didn't get arrested, didn't kick the crap out of another human being did he? i think the "don't party!" preachers need to lay off the guys. if they're not breaking the law, let them be. one of the greatest basketball players of all time has had his best games when he was hungover.

as long as he passes for over 175 yards against the colts...we should have a chance. but if he has 40 yards by halftime...its over. unless the D has made all the scores, who knows...
