Any one of three quarterbacks could start vs. Seahawks

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks


Lovie Smith wouldn't say whether Jay Cutler, Todd Collins or Caleb Hanie will start against the visiting Seahawks on Sunday. Of course, Cutler's status remains up in the air. He will need to pass a battery of tests and be cleared by team-and-independent physicians before he is able to return after suffering a concussion against the Giants on Oct. 3.

Collins got yanked from Sunday's game after one of the worst outings imaginable. The offense seemed to settle down under Hanie later in the game.

"There's no quarterback controversy or anything like that," Smith said. "Todd didn't play as well as he needed to finishing the game, and I like what Caleb Hanie was able to do coming in. We'll just continue to watch video and look at the group and see who gives us the best chance to win at a lot of our positions, like we do every week."

If Collins starts another game, it would be the ultimate bone-headed decision out of all of Lovie's bone-headed decisions. It won't matter if the Bears win the Superbowl. Fans are going to demand Lovie's head on a platter. That being said, even Lovie can't be that stupid. It it's not Cutler, Hanie will start.

The Bears basically used a 6th round pick on Todd Collins. Ouch! I didn't like the LeFevour pick when it happened, but if you're going to use a pick on a developmental quarterback (and he shows that he's worth developing) then you've got to stick with it. Even if it means carrying four quarterbacks for a while. What a waste.
