Bears | Blake Could Push Orton for No. 2 QB Job

John Mullin, of the Chicago Tribune, reports Chicago Bears QB Jeff Blake could push rookie QB Kyle Orton for the team's No. 2 quarterback job, according to head coach Lovie Smith. "The only given right now is that Chad (Hutchinson) is our starter," Smith said, "and we'll go from there." Working against Blake is his late arrival.

Working for Blake is his experience with the Bears offensive playbook. He has run virtually every Bears play in one form or another in an NFL career that has included stops with six other teams.
