OK...NOW I can say that Orton is the better choice over Grossman. Orton finally had a complete game, and looked better than any other QB in the NFL. Defense was right there as well. As Rosenberg would say...Kyle, your table is ready.

GREAT GAME!!! Let's keep this train rolling!

Hey, Grossman was on the field and didn't fumble!

Great job, good game, GO BEARS!! I agree, Marty Booker, whatta catch! Glad Lovie challenged that one!

Even Lil' Wolfe was mixing it up a bit!

Not a chance!! As long as Wrecks inhabits space in this city, there's the risk that he might resurface!

It will take some time before the Lions are cleansed of the Matt Millen era, but the Bears are starting to finally put it together. Orton had his best day at QB ever. Hopefully, when the repentant Tommie Harris comes back from the woodshed, they'll be even better.

Well after throwing away two games to the Lions last year, good to get back on the winning side !

I like the looks of Orton as QB, he doesent have the "moose in the headlights" look of Rex Grossman or Sarah Palin.

When they let Marty Booker go a few years ago I said it was a HUGE mistake, because he was the best guy on the team.
Welcome back Marty !

Good win Bears!! Kyle is getting better with every game, he's stepping up in the pocket,he can run alittle which makes defenses nervous,and he's making some really good throws.The Lions are a really bad team! and we should have beat the crap out of them just like a good team is suppose too!Our defense is getting better with every game too! We could win alot more games then the experts think.Go Bears!, Rock n Roll, and MORE BEER! Ratpack in the House!

There are worse things than having Grossman as a backup, so I'm not complaining.

A BEARS QB is the overall passing leader this week?!?!?! That's unheard of...but I'm happy about it.

This win helped me forget about my misery called the Cubs for 3 hours.

where are the all so called experts at the tribune now and the so called bears fans who picked the Lions or thought it was a trap game? The Bears took care of business and dominated the Kittie Cats. First place in the NFC north and bring on the Falcons

The real key to the Bears win was a really sucky opponent. Just wait until they are up against real teams.

Nice to see Orton continuing to develop. This game also saw the demise of the Lions 2008 Season. "They pounded the rock".

Amazing that Fraud Field (or Ford's Folly) was as full as it was.
