SHARE Smith refuses to commit to Orton

The players who give the Bears the best chance to win Sunday against the Green Bay Packers will start. Thats the message Lovie Smith drove home about a half-dozen times during his press conference that just wrapped up at Halas Hall.

Smith was non-commital about Kyle Orton making it to start No. 2, making you realize theyre at least considering having the QB turnstile click yet again. Smith was clearly upset with the way the offense played against the Vikings.

Offensive coordinator Ron Turner seemed certain following the game that Orton would play vs. the Packers as the Bears go for a sweep in the season series.

Well see. Check back later for more details.
