The Chicago Bears named Kyle Orton the starter for the Bears first preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
But, the reps between both QB’s will be the same.
Rex Grossman will come into the first half, so don’t worry you will get to see both of them in the game.
Grossman will start next week against the Seahawks and Orton the next week and Grossman the final week of the preseason.
What about un-drafted rookie, Caleb Hanie, he could be the starter.
This QB competition will be a good one, but I see one QB coming out on top earlier than many expect.
I truly believe Rex Grossman will be the man under center, when the first week of the season comes.
He has so much potential and has a much better arm than Kyle Orton.
Kyle Orton did do a decent job, during his rookie season for the Bears.
Lovie Smith had this to say about the QB decision “Don’t look into any of these decisions that we’ve made right now.” “It’s a starting spot, and there’s no rhyme or reason as to why we’re going this direction. It’s just the way I want to go right now.”
Kyle Orton addressed the media yesterday, and had this to say “I think the last four or five practices, I’ve been sharp.” “I just keep on getting better, and that was my goal going into camp. I’m glad. I wanted to come out and start. I feel real confident right now.”
Grossman was all small talk, when he said “I really don’t have an opinion on how it came down, but I’m excited about being live. That’s how you get in game mode.”
In other preseason news, Terrence Metcalf and first round pick Chris Williams won’t play in the game tomorrow night. Instead, Josh Beekman will fill in for Metcalf and John St. Clair will fill in for Williams.
Besides those injuries, the Bears are still without Dan Bazuin (knee swelling), Dusty Dvoracek (calf), Michael Okwo (leg) and Hunter Hillenmeyer (undisclosed).
But, Kevin Jones is close to coming off the physically unable to perform list, dressing in full pads with a brace on his right knee.
We will see what happens in tomorrow nights game.
