A reading comprehension course will help you immensely.
First off, the reason for bringing up Grossman's career record pre-2007 is because the Orton fans I was responding to was talking about what Orton's W/L record is, using that to show he will continue his winning ways. Grossman's was even better, yet showed that without a stunning D he couldn't keep winning, just like YOU are doing in the above post. Grossman just seemed to win even with his poor techniques. See the similarities?
Secondly, Kyle Orton didn't have a TD pass in the Indy game.
I'm sick of the Orton fan chant of 'He just seems to win' while ignoring that Rex Grossman also 'just seemed to win'. Some of you seem to forget Shane Matthews has a higher winning % than either of them. When did we consider HIM a good QB?
Neither of these guys are good QB's and it's time that each Orton fan face the exact same thing they demanded of the Grossman fan. The fact that their QB of choice won't win us football games, they'll just be along for the ride when the D, special teams or, if we are very lucky, the running game carries them.
I want a football team that becomes dominant for a decade, not one that gets lucky to show up in the playoffs and hopes they can then eek through on great luck to the super bowl, which is what the Orton and Grossman fan groups are more than willing to accept.
A course in logical thought comprehension will be more of assistance to you.

Statement that can't be argued: More often than not, the Bears will win when Orton is the QB. In the face of the stat facts, 2007 instilled an absolute fact to one and all: Rex Grossman can be, and was, had! Defenses didn't need to diffuse their playbook with trickery or coverage changes, just put any amount of pressure on Rex and he's on the ground, just after the football hits it!

Quote me, play by play, how Rex was able to throw long accurate passes downfield for touchdowns and it can't begin to dim the perception: Rex Grossman will cough the ball up, more often, when the game is in the balance. In this case, perception is reality.

Proof that the ones that will lie to get their point across will also accuse others of inability to read with comprehension.

Anyone claiming that it's a 'fact' that the bears WILL win more with Orton than Grossman shows their delusions.

Orton has, to this point in his career, a better winning % that Rex has to this point in his career. But the winning % of Grossman at the exact SAME point in their respective careers (ie 20 NFL starts), Grossman was 15-5.

Under your simple minded idea, that would mean that the future would NOT have brought Grossman do to his present 19-11 W/L record.

The fact is Grossman IS 19-11 and the fact is that Orton could lose every game he and have a worse record, or he could win every game for the rest of the season. The only 'facts' are that his previous W/L record does nothing to dictate his future W/L record, something you Ortonites refuse to ever accept.

You make a claim about facts, then fill that claim with lies and exaggerations.
