(Source) - The Chicago Bears officially re-signed veteran quarterback Josh McCown on Tuesday to provide depth with starter Jay Cutler likely to miss Monday night’s matchup at San Francisco as he recovers from a concussion sustained Sunday against the Houston Texans. To make room for McCown, the Bears waived tight end Brody Eldridge. Released on Aug. 31, a day after the preseason finale at Cleveland, McCown started two games for the Bears last season and completed 35 of 55 passes for 414 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions. McCown took over for an ineffective Caleb Hanie, who filled in for Cutler, and led the Bears to a 1-1 record in his two starts, including a 17-13 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in the season finale.
Thank god. I was actually thinking this morning, when will Josh McCown get re-signed by the Bears? That guy was awesome.
In all honestly though if it ever gets to Josh McCown we are officially FUCKED. Like you know how Scalabrine was called the human victory cigar because he’d come in after the win was firmly in hand? Well Josh McCown is the exact opposite. A walking white flag. I actually think Jason Campbell can be somewhat competent at quarterback and I fully expect Cutler to be back for Minnesota if not San Fran but I just don’t see how this offense gets fixed unless someone gives Mike Tice a brain transplant. And I know this is going to sound slightly desperate but I think we really miss Alshon Jeffrey. Earl Bennet is invisible, Hester is unreliable, Kellen Davis should kill himself, and Marshall can’t physically catch every single pass even though I wouldn’t put it past him. So if Tice has any sense at all, hopefully he looks at his concussed quarterback, the depleted wide receivers and says oh wait, maybe Matt Forte should run the ball 25 times on Monday. Maybe that makes sense.
Nah, just kidding, we’ll probably throw deep a thousand times. Thank god the Defense will probably stop Kapernick from getting past the 50. I can’t imagine being a rookie and having to face that D. Mortifying.
The more I watch the replay of that hit on Sunday the more I realize it was probably one of the dirtiest plays all season. You can’t even say Dobbins had momentum. He literally speed up to hit him in the head.
