    Re: get to know some of the coaches

    Maybe Jim Cheney will become a conduit in getting Bears quarterback Kyle Orton into a RAMS uni. I think Orton will be a star in this league, he was thrown into the fire too early last year and then had the door slammed in his face with the return of Rex Grossman and the accuisition of Brian Greise. Orton will hone his skills under the tutalige of Wade Wilson.
