    HUH???? The first part of your post was right on..... we have been putting butts in the seats since the early 70's. We were mediocre most of the 70's and half of the 80's. Yet we sold out... We sold out when Charlie Johnson, Steve Ramsey and Norris Weese were QBs.... So McD may jack up our whole season or 2 or 3 until Pat fires him and brings back Shanny... We will sell out that entire time and then pick up where we left off...... Then it will be Good Bye and Good Riddens McD....

        Watching so-called Denver fans turn on Jay is sickening. The guy played his guts out for Denver. I've seen Denver fans over at the Chicago Bear site wishing harm and disease on Jay.

        That's just evil.

          My friends over at Sports Radio Interviews sent me a link to an interview Pat Bowlen did with a Chicago-area radio station. While there is nothing earth-shattering here, I do find it somewhat interesting that Bowlen would talk about Cutler and Orton with a Chicago sports talk station. Below is a transcript -

          What are the Bears getting in Jay Cutler?

          “They’re getting an extremely talented young quarterback.”

          Any regrets about how the Cutler situation turned out?

          “In my case, yeah. Jay and I got along. It just didn’t work out. However, I think he’s gone to a good place in Chicago. I think he’ll be a real asset to them and we’re moving on to a different direction.”

          Could it have ended differently?

          “You know, I don’t want to go down that road with Jay. I mean, Jay had his own agenda and you know I respect that. It just didn’t work out for him as for staying in Denver.”

          Questioning Cutler’s tools?

          “No, no, I think Jay was a very talented quarterback and he’s very early in his career and he has an opportunity to go on and be considered one of the better quarterbacks. So I don’t think there is any doubt in my mind that he has the physical and mental tools to do very well.”

          What do you think about what you got in return in Kyle Orton?

          “It’s a little early for me to start commenting on stuff like that, so we’ll see. We’re going through some OTAs and you know we’re watching guys throw footballs around. But, we’re a long way away-at least I’m a long way-from making any serious judgment calls on who is going to be good and who isn’t.”

Kyle Orton at least deserves the owner, of a team I'll remind you that said Orton was the deal clincher, to say something more along the lines of "I think Kyle is a good QB, but we are going to have some competition there for him" or something along those lines.
            and you're surprised? pat bowlen has early alzheimers that he prob forgot it was orton which made them choose chicago to trade jay with instead of getting campbell and sending cutler to washington instead. he prob has conversations with his boytoy mcdaniels "why did we get orton again? what did washington offer us again?"

              Alzheimers smack is hysterical. You can rip Bowlen for anything you want, but that is unnecessary there.

                What do you really want him to say?
                He's not seen the guy play enough for him to make a statement he's not sure about it
                I haven't seen the guy play, and I couldn't say he's going to be great. I do have my reservations until I see him play. Nothing wrong with that
                Also, Orton has not been named the starting QB as of yet
                About your statement on Orton being wanted. Obviously he's here, isn't he?
                He's an NFL QB and for Bowlen to say he can get the job done is redundant. Of course he can

                I've started with almost nothing and still got most of it

                  After reading this and remembering Bowlen's comment on McD making some rookie mistakes I have to wonder if Pat is regretting his recent decisions. Remember it was Bowlen who gave the go ahead to trade Cutler. I can see him saying some nice things about Cutler because it's simply bad PR for an owner to publicly trash a former player, but to not say ANYTHING positive about Orton OR Simms... I think Pat is secretly thinking "OMG, what have I done?" :doh:
