The Bears say that the QB battle between incumbent Rex Grossman and challenger Kyle Orton would be even and I have not doubts that the Bears will select whoever it is they think can do the best job. This time it could mean both Coach Smith's and GM Angelo's job, so I don't think they are going to stick with this loyalty to Grossman if they think Orton is the better QB.
In OTAs Orton was the first of the two to work with the #1 offense. Most didn't think this meant anything and said wait until training camp.
Now it has been announced (I misplaced the link, I am looking for it) that Orton would open Training Camp and get reps with the first team on day one and then it would switch to Rex on day two and so on.
