    Random thought: Could you see either Freeman or Sanchez in a Bears uniform?

    I do not really think either would be a backup project for Trestman and Co. to take on. However, I can't see McCown as being a serious option. Josh Mc. is what he is; a 34 year old QB in his eleventh season. Blanchard I like, but have not heard much about his status...

    If Marc is who some say he is, then who is he whispering to? where is our project? Beyond the needed depth and practice arm, there is value to be had. It feels like a team weakness that needs to be addressed. Do you hang on until the '14 draft? In an earlier thread some people on the board were predicting CB, C, DE, DT, S, WR as positions of need come draft day.

    I understand that with the existing player contracts both options are currently unrealistic. I'm just wondering if people on this board could justify such a random thought.

    Another random thought: What "if" you decide not to pay Cutler?

    Yeah it is a silly thought, but dang. It is going to take some $ to ink the paper.

    I'd rather see Emery draft a young project QB for Trestman to work with and groom as a rock solid backup to Cutler for now, and maybe he could be an insurance policy for the future if Jay (for whatever reason) down the road is no longer here. They say this upcoming draft is absolutely loaded with QB talent. We wouldn't have to spend a 1st round pick on one. But get a player in the early rounds that has fantastic ceiling. Emery & Trestman seem quite capable of getting the right guy.

    Regarding Freeman or Sanchez, I'd pass. It would be like the Jason Campbell experiment. Another deadbeat vet who can't play. Why spend money on that?

    I guess I'm just scared that Cutler is going to cost too much. I think we probably need to go that route, and on your earlier poll JABF I voted for 5 years... I just don't know if I want to be locked in with Jay that long, hope to change my mind towards the end of the season. Still early in this new relationship.

    Yeah, I do understand. We are only 3 games into this season. I'll feel more comfortable with everything (not just Jay) if we see how we are later in the season (after having played that Green Bay game in week 9).

    We will have to pay for Cutler. I can't believe the going price for a QB. I have confidence Emery will play it safe with the duration of the contract. The other way to look at it is will another team pay more than us? I doubt it so its not all one sided. Jay also needs us.

    One nice thing about this, is that Cutler knows what it's like to play on a bad team for coaches who are ignorant. Right now, he is in a good place. He has plenty of toys on offense (including his very favorite toy of all....B.Marsh), a brilliant coach, playing behind a solid offensive line, and on a team that should be competitive for years - with Emery as GM.

    He's going to be filthy rich here in Chicago, but if another team offers him more money, I don't see him leaving for that reason alone. He doesn't want to end up with a short career on a crap team - being a "human pinata" - and working for idiots again.

    Doesn't matter, Blanchard will be back after week 10.

    But I wonder if he is seen as the guy they want to develop, or just a guy they inherited from the Lovie era who's just "ok" but nothing special. It would be great if he is seen as "The Guy" to develop. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

    If you got game, it doesn't matter whose era you came from. If they were to write off every kid from that era, we'd be short about 75% of our starters. One year doesn't exactly make his a product of it, anyway, and he was an Emery signee. Matt's got game, we saw that, and I bet the prognosis was close enough to 10 weeks that everyone got together and said here's a nice fat paycheck for your time off, get better so we don't have to waste our only IR spot or 53-man slot on a guy who won't play, anyway.
