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

    History would love to hear it, b/c it's going to prove you're wrong.

    If you extrapolate McCown's numbers over the time he played in Washington to 16 games, he would have 4352 yards passing, 704 yards rushing, and 21 TDs with 0 interceptions.

    You can't argue with numbers like that :).

    How long did McCown have before the pocket collapsed that last play? Did the wide outs even have the time to make it into the end zone for that low probability Hail Mary?

    Look, McCown played well enough for the Bears to win. The low percentage play that the Bears have no excuse for allowing was the big bomb that had both Conte and Tillman covering in the end zone was more damaging than McCown not getting a desperation bomb off with 12 seconds left. Gould missing a field goal hurt us because it's easier to try for field goal position at the end of the game than a touchdown. There are so many aspects here that are in play.

    Anyone should have moved the ball on Washington's defense, but Cutler wasn't. McCown hasn't had snaps with the ones since August, but I guess even Blanchard would have moved the ball on this horrible Washington D because they didn't have tape on him either.

    But yeah, it's all about arm strength. I've noticed your wounded duck to good pass ratio is slowly creeping into a "McCown is horrible" range than your earlier comments about the guy. Because that's what makes a successful backup QB. Not running the offense and moving the ball into scoring positions.

    I'm just being snarky here. I'm supporting a guy that is by all accounts is a solid teammate that likes to teach the other players as much as he can. So don't get like really mad at me or my guy McCown for me being annoying. This is all in good fun.

    Besides, this is all academic. We are going to get pounded against Green Bay because our defense in two weeks is going to consist entirely of ex-bartenders and bouncers we signed off the street that couldn't stop a high school team.

    ^^^ While McCown did well yesterday it will be a nerve-racking game against the slacks.

    I don't like McCown and thought he was a waste of back up. He had a respectable game. He surprised me. I am happy for the Bears and him to show something out there. I don't expect him to be a long term starter.

    I like how now everybody is dismissing what McCown did. Jay has gotten all kinds of praise for being able to 'deal with' so many differnet offenses over his tenur in Chicago. "Give Jay some more time, he needs to learn the system to perform in the first half (not this weeks issue)." Now, when McCown (who I don't really like) steps in and runs the system they are saying he should be able to because he is a professional. You can't have it both ways either McCown stepped up or Jay isn't the superstar in their eyes.

    Yeah I think many are missing the original point.

    This is NOT a "McCown is better than Cutler thread"

    This is a "If McCown can preform with similar or better results as Cutler, does it prove Cutler is very replaceable and nowhere near a top qb"


    And the answer to that hypothetical question is yes. If McCown performs well and puts up similar numbers to jays "good" games (300 yds 3 tds 1int) on a CONSISTENT basis it dosent mean we should start him, it just means we can replace cutler without nearly the backlash we assume. IMO McCown performing well would really take the negotiating leverage away from Cutler.

    I got the premise, I just dismissed it b/c it has no basis in reality.
