Orton or Grossman?

In the early going, Kyle Orton seems to be the fan favorite in the quarterback derby that began in earnest with Wednesday's first practice. Working with the second team, Orton was cheered for every completion, even when the offense was working against air. In one instance, after Orton lofted a short flip that undefended tight end Greg Olsen caught in stride in the end zone, one fan couldn't contain himself. "Whoohoo, Kyle," he yelled. "That's our quarterback." Grossman, who worked with the first team Wednesday but will switch with Orton on Thursday and handle the second team, received catcalls after most incompletions, and especially when he was picked off by Nate Vasher in seven-on-seven. However, at the end of practice, after Grossman had met with the media and was jogging toward the locker room, a couple hundred fans, many of them children, were lined up behind the fence screaming for his autograph. As usual, Grossman stopped and signed. I'm wondering who readers would like to see running the Bears' offense this season.
