The Bears finally unwrapped the mystery that was hidden inside an enigma.
Kyle Orton will start at quarterback Thursday night at Soldier Field.
Rex Grossman will get some work and then he will start the next preseason game Aug. 16 at Seattle.
Lovie Smith said the decision had nothing to do with where the quarterbacks are in their competition almost two weeks into training camp.
"Of course I am excited to play in front of the home crowd," Orton said. "Practice has been going well so we'll go out and get the preseason off to a good start."
