Out of every free agent QB out there. I like Josh McCown the most.

How many people have been proven as a valuable backup to Jay Cutler? From what I hear, he was very well liked by his teammates in Chicago, too. Nobody can blame him for leaving to take a starter’s job down in Tampa.

He didn’t do so well, and found himself without a team.

That’s OK Josh, c’mon back.

Not to start……………Well, maybe to start. Who knows? Talk about a guy coming off of the bench, settling right in, and making it work. Either way he will be an asset.

My favorite Chicago Bears game from 2013, when Josh McCown came in to start 5 games for the injured Jay Cutler, was the Cowboys game. We scored on every possession. It was friggin’ beautiful.

He has a relationship with almost all of our key offensive players already. He also spread the ball around. I expect he would do more of the same.

You might say, “That was Marc Trestman’s offense!” “It might not work now!”

I will reserve giving Marc Trestman any credit for anything except winning two Grey Cups, and writing a book. Oh, and having the shortest tenure of any coach in our franchise’s history. He will have to show me otherwise first.

I wish the Packers had hired Trestman instead of the Ravens.

I am still probably one of the last Jay Cutler supporters out there. Accept-er is more like it. He’ll probably still be on the team after the deadline of March 12th.

It would go over alot better if I knew Josh McCown is backing him up.

I really don’t know how much of Jay’s excellent performance in ’13 came from having Josh McCown around, he was very active on the sidelines.

You know how Jay Cutler doesn’t really seem to care what anyone thinks of him?

I think he cares what Josh thinks of him.

I also think he might be the last person with a chance to save Jay Cutler’s NFL career as a starter.

Other than Jay, that is.

I’m sure you guys will pipe up to let me know how you feel in the comments section.

Don’t forget your loved ones for Valentines Day, if you didn’t drive them away during the Bears crappy season.
