Thanks to Rumors and Rants, I’ve been alerted to the fact that both Kyle Orton and Rex Grossman have signed one-year contracts with Chicago, once again continuing the Bears tradition of holding onto mediocre quarterbacks and hoping that everything will coalesce around them into regular success (and praying that the defense takes no hits or injuries this upcoming season.)
So it’s Orton, Grossman, and quite possibly a QB picked up in the first round (but that’s probably not likely) with the potential to start for a team that’s suffering through a lousy running game from last season and could only point to sweeping the Packers as a highlight last season.
I’m still trying to figure out how staying at status quo makes the Bears any better offensively. Yes, if the O-line can keep Orton or Grossman upright, it always helps, but the poor decisions by either one can offset that. How much faith can you have in two players that can’t really win games for you if they have to?
At least we’ll have more drunk Orton photos to run with for a while.
