    before the Cutler trade it was time to do that, after the Cutler trade it was time to do that, now that he's signed to a 3-7 year deal it's even more important it happens.

    There are plenty QBs worth drafting this year. This year is a MUST.

    Zach Mettenberger, Aaron Murray, Tajh Boyd, Jimmy Garoppolo, Jordan Lynch, AJ McCarron, Brett Smith and Jeff Matthews just to name a few.

    And all those guys should be able to be gotten after you get 2-3 D players. after the 4th you are looking at guys that will be probably backup level anyways.

    You can never have enough QBs, we just need to make sure we do not short ourselves on defense by taking a QB took soon.

    From the first time the Bears announced that Marc Trestman was going to be our new head coach, I've been excited to watch him live up to the hype that he's a "QB Whisperer" who can coach up players to be great QB's. If this is true, then why not bring in a young guy who has the raw talent to be developed into a solid QB If nothing else, the guy could be a solid future backup, rather than spending on a higher priced vet backup. At best, maybe the guy can be Cutler's eventual replacement, down the road.

    If I had to pick any young guy it would be Aaron Murray, or Jimmy Garoppolo.

    Murray is a Brees like QB, he's shorter but its int he pocket well and can launch the ball
    Garoppolo has one of the fastest releases which would be kill for Trestman, I was stunned how fast he really is

    Regarding, Jimmy Garoppolo, I'd love to see him here in Chicago. I watched him play at Eastern and he's going to be a solid NFL quarterback for whomever drafts him. The problem is that every projection I've seen for him, has him being picked in the 2nd round. He may not even be available when WE pick in the second. A number of teams will be interested in him. The guy is an amazing talent.......I really enjoyed watching him play.
