Bears Looking For New QB

Bears head coach Lovie Smith admitted last month the club needs to formulate a better plan at the backup quarterback position heading into the 2012 regular season. Caleb Hanie was the Bears backup quarterback in 2011. Hanie made four starts on 2011 after starter Jay Culter was injured. The Bears lost all four games Hanie started.

Hanie’s stats as a started were poor, completing only 50 percent of his passes for 613 yards, 3 touchdowns and 9 interceptions.  This month of football knocked the Bears out of the hunt for the playoffs. The Bears did try to Kyle Orton off waivers after the Denver Broncos release him. But the Kansas City Chiefs claimed Orton first.

Some options for the Bears as a backup quarterback Kyle Boller, Jason Campbell, David Carr, Donovan McNabb, Kyle Orton, Brady Quinn, and Vince Young. All players who have been starters in the past and are unrestricted free agents.

    I like the Chad Henne idea. Let him get healthy in a back up role and he could have some value down the line. He will come cheap.

    Jason Campbell??? What happened with going after Chad Henne…
