Bills to start Kyle Orton; Super Bowl berth awaits

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

The Buffalo Bills announced that they mean business on Monday, naming Kyle Orton their starting quarterback for next week's game against Detroit in place of their first-round pick from last season, EJ Manuel. Some are seeing the turn to the Neckbeard as a panic move, but I see it for what ...

KO To Return To Bears?

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Like they always say, never look a gift neckbeard in the mouth. Quarterback Kyle Orton became available this week when the Denver Broncos pledged to full-fledged Tebowmania for the remainder of 2011 and waived Orton. The timing is perfect for the Bears, who have possibly lost starter Jay Cutler for the remainder ...

Jay Cutler Signs Contract Extension, Kyle Orton Simply Wins Games

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

First thing I thought upon reading that Jay Cutler had signed a two-year extension with the Chicago Bears that inks him through the 2013 season: This situation just became impossibly rich. Think about it. The Bears traded Kyle Orton, two first round picks and a third-rounder to the Denver Broncos for ...

Tecmo KO

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

Trick question: How do you make Kyle Orton even more awesome? I know, I know. It doesn't even seem possible. But some techno genius has done it. Or should I say, Tecmo Genius? That's right. Orton's miracle shoulda-been-an-interception game-winning heave to Brandon Stokley has been reinvented in 8-bit Tecmo Bowl glory. There are some ...

All It Took Was One (Preseason) Game For The Honeymoon To End

In today’s Chicago Tribune (wait, people still read newspapers?), David Haugh, who covers the Bears, warns Jay Cutler may be too honest for his own good with the media following Saturday’s disappointing showing against Buffalo.  In an offseason and training camp where the media has done nothing short of a providing ...

Finally A Quarterback I Can Bear

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Oh, the quarterback carousel in Chicago just doesn’t seem to want to quit. Just months after being anointed The Bearded Savior, Kyle Orton is looking over his shoulder. Orton didn’t have an awful season. He threw for 2,972 yards and 18 touchdowns, but after a midseason ankle injury he wasn’t the ...

Coming To The Rex-cue

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

It was Oct. 5. I remember sitting at my local Buffalo Wild Wings. My head hurt, my stomach churned and my heart ached. The night earlier, my beloved Chicago Cubs were swept out of the playoffs by the Los Angeles Dodgers. A season that looked destined to break the franchise’s century-long ...

This Kyle Orton Character Might Actually Be Decent

Monday, October 13th, 2008

This is the first of two random, subjective quarterback evaluations we have from the same game. Let us begin. We know how fashionable it's been over the last couple years to dog on whichever quarterback the Bears are trotting out there every Sunday. In fact, it's pretty fun. Admittedly, it's more fun ...
