BeaconNews: Rookie challenge: Combat Redskins' blitz
LAKE FOREST — It has all the ingredients of an ugly mess in the Bears' backfield.
Kyle Orton on Sunday will be the Bears' first opening day starting rookie quarterback since Zeke Bratkowski in 1954, he'll sometimes have rookie running back Cedric Benson as his last line of defense from pass rushers, the Washington Redskins' vaunted defense rarely needs encouragement to blitz and Sunday's season-opener is in Landover, Maryland's raucous FedEx Field.
