    With two new potential back-up QB's, does this open the opportunity to get rid of McCowan? Based on a quick search on Palmer and Edwards, I don't see them as a serious threat to Cutler. But if they get rid of McCowan, will that send a subtle message to Cutler that performance matters?

    I don't think so, but that's just my thought.

    These guys don't seem to have less talent than McCowan. The only advantage with mcc is he knows the plays/system.

    None of them are all that good. In the battle of bad backups, I would rather have the guy who knows the system (which all are learning, no one really knows it since it is a new coach) and one who knows the players. That would be McCown

    I'm still sick over Blanchard getting hurt. I'm am SO wanting to see if Trestman really is a QB guru, and we won't know until he actually develops a young guy. Palmer and Edwards have no future anywhere. Palmer is a joke. And McCown is probably a better fit for this team than Edwards (and McCown is a marginal player too). When you think about it, our QB situation stinks. The jury is still out on Cutler, and the rest of the players right now are crap. I was sure hoping Blanchard might be worth developing.

    Feel free to save it. If the Bears are forced to start any of them for any meaningful period of time, the team is screwed.

    They are all bad QBs. They were all unemployed for a very good reason
