    Yup, you did.

    Ben's stats got hurt last week with 2 INT's that weren't his fault. (one was)

    The Lions almost beat Chicago. Still think Chicago will 'sweep the division'?

    Watch Ben tomorrow night....

    I still dont see anyone in our division who scares us. Depending on how long Orton is out. People say that he drove himself home after the game. If that's true then it's probably not horrible but we wont know anything until this afternoon. Our only hope is activating Caleb Hanie and having him start until Orton is better, lol. *crosses fingers* Orton back in action next week or definetely against Green Bay!

    I like that comparison, but come one, Orton to Big Ben not even close.
    Try Eli Manning to Matt Ryan comparison and tell me they are on the same level though their stats are near each other

    But at least Grossman didn't blow the game for you.

    Go Seahawks time to strive for a top 5 pick :sad2:

    To all of you Fantasy Football players out there. I'm going to give you my season winning tip of this year.

    Step 1: Check the schedule to see who the Lions are playing for the next week. Lets call this "Team A".

    Step 2: Scour the waivers for any 1st string player on Team A.

    Step 3: Play those people.

    Step 4: Victory

    What are you talking about? Stats dont lie man. If you look in the past, Orton has played amazing. He's just shadowed because nobody has considered the Bears to have a good offense. The kid has a great winning record especially with the kind of people he has to throw to. He's easily a top caliber QB in the NFL and I've heard that numerous times on sportscenter, nfl.com, and other sports media outlets.

    I agree, and he also has Hester. He's just lacking that "big-time-go-all-the-way" star receiver like many teams have. Sure Im biased towards Orton but even from an outsider's perspective the guy has outperformed what was expected of him. He may be the Bears franchise QB if this injury doesnt get to him too much.
