Good points! However, contained passes to competent offensive backs with good hands can stretch things out. Our AP did a good job of that last season as I recall, he was leading receiver in a few games & didn't drop the ball like Benson would.

I saw them using this approach with Forte during camp & the kid also has good hands. This plays to Orton's short-ball passing skills.

See why we let Moose and Berrian go? No real downfield threat...I guess Bears management knew that Orton was going to win the competition all along. And I was sure it was going to be Grossman because of the history.

Fuggit, go Bears!
