The Chicago Bears’ starting lineup just got 100% more neck-bearded than it was entering the 2007 season, as Kyle Orton has been named the team’s starting quarterback.
Hallelujah, right? The Bears are good to go now that our quarterback of the future has been identified?
I wish Kyle the best, and of course I want the Bears to win 10 games this year and shock the world. But unfortunately to me, only a few things are clear with this. First, whether it’s Kyle Orton, Rex Grossman, Kyle Farnsworth, Calib Hanie, your neighbor’s pomeranian Rex, no matter who is behind the offensive line the Bears have fielded thus far in the preseason, they will not have the time to perform as a good quarterback.
And again, it’s another failed first-round pick at quarterback. Wait, we knew this when Grossman was benched in 2007, sorry.
Is this 1952, 1997 or 2008? We’re still saying the same thing….when is our franchise quarterback coming?
