Bears Will Roll Out Josh McCown On Sunday

Josh McCown

Apparently, the Chicago Bears have seen enough of Caleb Hanie.

The Bears, whose playoff hopes are on life support, will trot out Josh McCown at quarterback when the team faces the Green Bay Packers this week. The Bears picked McCown off the street in November and he was out of football in 2010, so this should go pretty well.

“I’ll tell you what, you can’t be anything but excited,” McCown said. “(Coach Lovie Smith) put that up there this morning about the oldest rivalry. To get to be a part of that in this atmosphere, I’m very excited. I’m very thankful. It’s a great opportunity to go play and have fun; to play on Christmas and all that. Absolutely it’s neat.”

That’s right. Dude actually said neat.

McCown replaced Hanie late in the Bears’ last debacle in Seattle. He threw two passes, completed one of them and threw a pick on the other.

Hanie, who took over when chief mouth breather Jay Cutler went down, managed three TDs and nine picks in four starts. Three of those picks came last week.

  1. Bears are toast! Pack should Run and Run and save the line and Aaron the Athlete of the year from any new injuries.
    Woodson and company will have 3 Picks. Fiynn plays second half with 2TD’s, can you say Hibernate!
    GO PACK!

    Without an O-line who’s to say how Rodgers will perform. The way Finley’s been dropping passes this might be a game.

  3. Vijay

    We don’t do well against ‘replacement’ QB’s for some reason. There is NO way we should lose this game, even with a beat up O line…but why am I still nervous? Pack need to re-establish their edge, confidence, whatever…it all starts here!
