As our revolving QB door hopefully closes for at least 12 years, some of our old signal callers are finding their way elsewhere.
Kyle Orton was named as the starting QB for the Denver Broncos. After the Cutler trade it was rumored that there would be an open competition for the Broncos QB job between Orton & Chris Simms. The Broncos however made the right choice by choosing Orton’s neckbeard over Simms’ spleen, the lesser of two evils!
To be honest Orton’s doing exactly what he does best…be the “team” guy and look good in practice, that’s why he started with the Bears and that’s why he’ll start in Denver. With Denver’s backfield up in the air with a bunch of unproven vets and rookie Knowshon Moreno, I’d imagine Denver would once again be pass happy as they try to establish an identity under their rookie coach.
That might spell trouble for the Broncos, because we know all to well that Orton is only effective behind a great running game. Kyle’s only good….eh em….I’m sorry….average seasons were due only to great seasons turned in by Thomas Jones in 05 and Matt Forte’s breakthrough season in 08.
Now on to the butt of many Chicago jokes…Rex Grossman. June 12th 2009 is a day that should go down in Chicago history, the day Rex Grossman officially is not our problem anymore. On Friday the 12th of June in a move that would baffle even Al Davis, the Houston Texans signed QB Rex Grossman to compete for the backup role to Matt Schaub.
Jerry Angelo’s two biggest strokes of genius were parting ways with Rex and trading for Jay. Even though Rex grew up near by in Indiana, he just wasn’t a Chicago type guy, Rex is still the only person to this day to receive more threats than Steve Bartman.
I don’t see Rex making the team, I believe Dan Orlovsky and Craig Nall we’ll be Schaubs backups. Texans backups are all similar, but the nod would go to Orlovsky and Nall just based on their height alone, both guys are 2 to 4 inches taller than Grossman who’s only 6ft 1 and leads the world in batted balls.
Well Chicago, hopefully we’ve turned the page and we’re on to bigger and better things. I don’t know about the rest of you, but it absolutely annoys me when the biggest stat page they show during a Bear game is the name of Quarterbacks we’ve had over the last 15 years.
Oh yeah its so funny to the announcers and it’s a big joke around the league, but like the rest of the faithful, I’ve lived through these nightmares, and I don’t think its funny that the Bears Qb’s are like the drummer in Spinal Tap.
After I get up in the morning and thank the lord for another day, I also ask him that Jay Cutler is as advertised! Its our time to strike, we got the pieces in place, lets go out there and take back whats rightfully ours, what Papa Bear Halas dedicated his life to….that’s for the Bears to be the best and most feared team in the league!
