Orton and Moose finally make that long distance connection

Much has been said here and other places about Orton and Muhammad's inability to hook up down the field.  This past Sunday they made steps in that direction.

The Bear Report:

Muhsin Muhammad had three catches for 85 yards, averaging 28.3 yards a catch. He had catches of 33, 30 and 22 yards. Prior to Sunday, he hadn't made a catch longer than 28 yards. The 22-yarder on a fade route set up the winning field goal.

While we are still waiting for that 60 yard bomb, I will take this as a big positive and hope for more.
