Veteran NFL writer Ira Miller, who recently relocated to the Chicago area from San Francisco, put together a preview of the Bears following a recent visit to Bourbonnais.
You can always pick up something insightful when visiting with Ira on the sidelines, and in this case you can definitely pick up something insightful when reading Ira on NFL.com.
"Consider that [Rex] Grossman's 19-11 record as an NFL starter, combined with Kyle Orton's 12-6, equals a winning percentage exceeded by only six active quarterbacks, a group that includes Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Donovan McNabb."
That's pretty interesting. Both quarterbacks have been helped by a usually tough defense and a stout running game before last season.
We wrote it last weekend that Grossman could have a slight advantage now given the fact that he'll get the start with the ones Saturday night in Seattle and Orton figures to get a little less time. It will be interesting if they have even performances like they seemed to coming out of the Kansas City game. Stay tuned.
