Working through the reaction at Halas Hall following the naming of Kyle Orton as the starting quarterback for the 2008 season.
Here is the most telling quote from the afternoon from coach Lovie Smith when he was asked if the quarterback derby between Orton and Rex Grossman was over:
"Is it over?'' Smith said. "Nothing is ever over with any position. We don't name any guys starters for a lifetime or anything like that. But we feel real good about Kyle just like we feel good about Olin Kreutz being our center, Lance Briggs being our will linebacker."
There's some realism from the man with the glass that is half-full. Note that he was also able to take a page out of the book of John "Bluto" Blutarsky, which by our standards is always a good thing. A very good thing.
Check back later on for more reaction.
