So who's going to start for the Bears this year?

Postposted on Fri Aug 29, 2008 8:52 am

I was watching some hi-lites this morning and it looks like the Bears have a tough choice this year. Go with inconsistency (aka Grossman), or go with inexperience (aka Orton).

So what do you Bears fans think? I think it's gonna be another long year in Chicago.

I thought they pretty much picked Orton as the starter. Why not give Culpepper a tryout or something. I mean, how much worse could things get QB wise in the CHI town?

They were saying on TSN this morning that because of his poor play in the pre-season they are undecided.

They announced Orton was the starter a week or so ago. He's not looked like Johnny Unitas in the preseason, but Grossman has looked like Anthony Dilweg so it was sort of a lesser of two evils thing.

Could and probably should have been Chad Pennington. He's not the greatest but he could manage a primarily-running offense and even complete more passes than he doesn't.

It's always a lesser of 2 evils, frankly I don't see what the big deal is. If the offensive line isn't very good it will not matter who they have in there for QB.

Hows Da Bears defense looking? I have them in fantasy along with arizona. I'm playing Arizona first because they are playing a software SF team. The bears are playing Indy IIRC.
