Kansas City Chiefs
The Chicago Bears indicated they still have faith in their No. 2 quarterback despite a difficult performance last week. Their next opponent doesn't appear to feel the same way.
While Chicago sticks with Caleb Hanie, the Kansas City Chiefs might start former Bear Kyle Orton over a struggling Tyler Palko on Sunday at Soldier Field.
The Bears remain in position for a wild-card berth, but a 25-20 loss in Oakland last Sunday halted a five-game winning streak and left them as one of three NFC teams with a 7-4 record. To build a lead over the other contenders, Chicago could use some better games from Hanie.
In his first start for the injured Jay Cutler and first action since last season's NFC title game, Hanie threw three interceptions in the first half but rebounded to go 10 of 18 in the fourth quarter for 175 of his 254 yards. He had two touchdown passes and ran for 50 yards, but also ended Chicago's final drive after being called for intentional grounding because he took ...

Bears QB admits Raiders threw some surprises at himAs Caleb Hanie dissected the loss to the Raiders on Monday, he came to one conclusion: Better days are ahead.
As the Bears prepare to host the Chiefs Sunday at Soldier Field, they're expecting quarterback Caleb Hanie to pick up right where he left off in the second half of last week's loss to the Raiders.
Will Kyle Orton be returning to Chicago as a starting quarterback? I think so. Will Caleb Hanie be able to improve upon his performance of a week ago? He has to. Will the Bears right the ship at home? Absolutely. WHY DO I LIKE THE CHICAGO BEARS THIS WEEK? I always like the Chicago Bears... Read more »
Pretty happy, as this video indicates. Living with Tim Tebow had to be difficult experience.
Somehow, neither the team’s acquisition of Kyle Orton nor a terrible performance against the Steelers last Sunday will cause Tyler Palko to lose his spot atop the depth chart for the Chiefs.
He’s safe under center, at least temporarily, according to his coach.
During a conference call Wednesday, Kansas City coach Todd Haley announced that Palko will start at quarterback against...

former Bear Kyle Orton over a struggling Tyler Palko on Sunday at Soldier
Less than a week ago, Kyle Orton was close to re-joining the Chicago Bears.
Now he may start against them.
Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley announced Monday that Orton will be given a chance this week to win the starting QB job this week, in time for Sunday's game versus the Bears.
The Chiefs' quarterback position is in flux after Tyler Palko threw four turnovers...
Okay, it's a fake Kyle Orton. But it's a pretty good likeness, and I'm sure the real Kyle Orton shares many of the same sentiments.
Get it out, Kyle. Get it all out.
An old saying — absence makes the heart grow fonder — seemed appropriate after the Bears’ 25-20 loss Sunday in Oakland. Suddenly, for even the most critical Bears fans, one of Chicago’s most important thumbs — neighboring in the stratosphere with Sun-Times movie critic Roger Ebert’s —...
Poked, prodded and asked about his starting quarterback just about every way possible, Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley had the same answer every time: Tyler Palko is the guy.
That doesn't mean Kyle Orton won't get the majority of the snaps Sunday at Chicago.
Haley said before practice Wednesday that Palko would get about 60 percent of the repetitions with the first...
One day after Tyler Palko committed four turnovers in a four-point loss to Pittsburgh, he remained the Chiefs' starting quarterback, at least in a public setting. But Palko's grip on the position, already tenuous, slipped further from his grasp when coach Todd Haley said the recently acquired Kyle Orton would also get some first-team snaps Wednesday when the Chiefs begin...
