Just a thought, BUT....if, while Jay is out, the offense looks like it did

    How long do you think it takes an NFL VETERAN to learn a playbook?

    One thing I really like about McCown is that he's a pretty football-smart guy. That does factor in somewhat in a WCO. I expect he'll be savvy enough to make mostly good decisions. He won't light it up, but he'll move the chains. I guess I'm expecting him to be a good backup, but not a starter-level talent. You could sure do worse in a backup QB. The good guys are starters, and FWIW, not even every team in the league has a decent starter. I watch some of these games (other teams) and cringe at the QB play some of them have now.

    How long does it take to get to know your teammates tendencies and develop a rapport with them? How much time do you think McCown was given with the ones before his start against, who was it, Seattle, when Hanie got the bench?

    How do you expect a fresh off the street QB to WIN A GAME against Green Bay in their stadium when it's a tall order for Jay Cutler to do it?

    not sure he was a better option then the UDFA's either, until the udfa's got hurt, all McCown offers this team is he's no threat to Cutler's long term tenure w/the Bears...which is now in question.

    Again he had a career game yesterday good for him, but don't expect it again.

    Here's a better question, if McCown were also injured in the Washington game, and we went to the street and picked up Jordan Palmer to play GB in two weeks, would you expect this team right now to leave Lambeau Field with a win?

    Then you didn't watch yesterday's game or have been paying attention to Matt Blanchard's inability to find another team, which is a cardinal sin to any player if they cannot be on a 53 man roster or at least a practice squad.

    You're asking a hypothetical question about a hypothetical situation.

    I like McCown he has the smarts and drive to play, I was in favor of them keeping him over the other guys. He's been standing at Trest side and has been soaking in the knowledge this season and those 2 seem to share a better sympatico then even Jay. I also see McCown being a good coach some day when he retires not so for Jay. But lets see what happens to McCown when other teams game plan specifically for him and then see how he performs. It's like when Grossman was playing out of his mind those 1st few games racking up big numbers. When other teams started studying him closely and saw his flaws they shut him down big time, he never produced like that again.
