When I first heard that DEN waived him, my first thought was "cool, the Bears can get him back while Jay is hurt". But then I thought about this more. I liked Orton a lot when he was a Bear. I think he was under-rated. But that system he played was pre-Martz. Its not like he'll walk in and know the 2011 Bears. If anything, we have a possible Orton v Cutler conflict. Hopefully he serves as only a veteran back-up for the sake of contingency. I want to see Hanie do well, and I think he can.
