Predicting the Bears opening day roster by position: Quarterbacks

Over a series of upcoming posts, we’ll take a look at how the Bears 2010 opening day roster will shape up at several key positions. First up, THE key position – Quarterback.
Lock: That Cutler dude.
Limbo: Caleb Hanie, Dan LeFevour.
Prediction: Cutler, a veteran TBD, Hanie.
Besides Cutler, there’s potential for this unit to look drastically different from ’09, when the Bears only kept Cutler and Hanie on the 53-man active roster. There’s been talk of adding a veteran who’s schooled in Martz’s Greatest Show on Turf scheme, and Marc Bulger or Josh McNown make waaaay too much sense.
I think Martz will lobby hard to keep 3 QBs around and get his way. It will be interesting to see who sticks at third string. While the club is high on LeFevour, I can’t see them giving up on Hanie, a two-year project who’s shown glimpses of goodness…against backups…in preseason games. Unless they think they can get something in return for him as far as a trade is concerned, I think he’ll stick.
Assuming he clears waivers, LeFevour’s destined for the practice squad.

    Well no offence, but Hanie hasn’t showed much at all, Lefevouris very agile and quick witted in pressure situations but don’t let this slip your mind, we also picked up Juice williams days after the draft..

    Did some one just yell Mike Vick?
