At Last, Kyle Orton Returns

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.

Deadspin Hall of Famer Kyle Orton is back where he belongs: As the Bears starting quarterback.


Kyle Orton will start at quarterback for the Bears on Monday night against the Vikings, coach Lovie Smith announced.

The 5-8 Bears have only a slight chance of making the playoffs, and playing Orton is a sign that they're starting to look toward next season. Orton's last game action was the 2005 season, when he started 15 games as a rookie after Grossman broke his ankle in the preseason.

The prodigal son ... RETURNS!
