Hanie Benched; McCown to Start Sunday Night at Packers

The Sam Houston State product with Jim Miller’s old number.

The Chicago Bears announced on Wednesday that Josh McCown will start instead of Caleb Hanie at quarterback on Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field.

McCown, who was acquired on Nov. 23, replaced Hanie for the last two drives Sunday and completed just one pass and threw an interception. Since 2007, McCown has attempted just eight passes, completing two.

“I’m just gonna get myself ready like I’ve done every week, and then we’ll see what happens,” McCown said Tuesday.

    I don’t think Josh is going to do any better than Caleb did.
