Hard work for Orton to stay ready should he ever get the call again.
Matt Hasselbeck knows what it is like for Rex Grossman.
It was a rough lesson.
"The key is how you handle the benching," Hasselbeck said. "For me, I was fortunate that I had good people around me and helped me through that and helped me handle it in a professional way, in a way that was good for the team.
"I think in a way I earned the respect of my teammates -- not by how I played on the football field, but more how I handled getting benched."
Cedric Benson is happy with the change at QB.
Along with Orton, Adrian Peterson also waits for his shot.
''I hope to get a chance at some point, but you can't spend too much time thinking about that. We're a game under .500. First and foremost, it's about trying to get a win, and then after that ... because if you win, everything will take care of itself.
