Mariotti figures Orton will start for Chicago
Posted Jul. 21 at 02:00 AM
Chicago Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti predicts that Kyle Orton, not Rex Grossman, will be the Bears’ starting quarterback this season.
“I say that not because I have any particular confidence in Orton, who would be a second- or third-stringer on other NFL depth charts, but because I have slightly more faith he'll make fewer mistakes than Rex Grossman,” Mariotti writes.
“Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith, Rex's enablers, seem to finally grasp that Grossman isn't a starter, which explains why they've thrust him into pro football's lamest QB controversy ever,” Mariotti writes. “Rex is the NFL's most grotesque version of organizational suicide.”
