    Will the Chicago Bears land Mark Sanchez?

    The Chicago Bears lost veteran back up quarterback Josh McCown to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. McCown stepped up in a huge way for Chicago after starting quarterback Jay Cutler fell to two different injuries on two separate occasions.

    McCown finished the year with the Bears with 1,829 passing yards, 13 touchdowns and one interception. Cutler finished the year with 2,621 passing yards, 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Most Bears fans thought there would be a quarterback controversy in Chicago yet again, but McCown and head coach Marc Trestman both knew that Cutler was the starting quarterback for this team.

    As of right now, the only back up Chicago has for Cutler is Carson Palmer‘s brother, Jordan. Jordan hasn’t played much in his professional career, so knowing he’s the one who has to step up if Cutler goes down again, is a little concerning.

    But what if the Bears brought in recently released New York Jet, Mark Sanchez? Sanchez worked with now Chicago Bears quarterback coach Matt Cavanaugh. Cavanuagh worked with Sanchez from 2009 to 2012 before leaving for Chicago.

    Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery was asked about Mark Sanchez and this is what he had to say:

    “At some point we’ll probably bring in a bunch of veterans after this wave of free agency – this first and second way – and we take a look at who’s still looking for an opportunity. And we’ll bring them in and we’ll try them out and we may sign another one.” – Phil Emery viaCSN Chicago.

    Sanchez has 12,092 passing yards, 68 touchdowns with 69 interceptions in his career. Not the best numbers in the league, but could turn things around.

    Usually all someone needs to get things on track is a fresh start. But will it be in Chicago? I highly doubt it.

    Hmm interesting huh?

    I'm pretty sure that Emery quote was not about Sanchez, but about vet qb's in general. I would like to see Sanchez signed and see what Trestman's crew can do with him.

    Given his likely cost, I'd say PASS.

    way to much money, and never like the idea of bringing in vets.

    Let's put it this way. His track record is certainly no worse than many other vet prospects and Cavanaugh is as familiar with him as anyone so it's not beyond the realm of possibility. For McCown I believe that Emery would have reached a little deeper into his wallet, but not $5 mil deep, but for another vet to come in he would need to do it under that same vet minimum salary benefit that McCown did. So, if Sanchez feels he's worth far more than that it's not gonna happen. That's not to say if they found a guy who looked very, very good they might not stretch a little higher and give him a two year deal but the likelihood of that isn't as great.

    I always thought he got screwed by the Jets not giving him anyone to throw the ball to and a rather suspect line. I just don't want a player who wears a "Girley Thing" hair band in his hair.
    :D

    OMC there is something to be said there, his rookie year they gave him a great OL and a RB and I think a TE, and I think he helped them win a few playoff games. Over the years the OL fell apart, the RB's left and were never replaced and no wr's were ever added, then all of a sudden he wasn't good enough. I don't think he's elite definately not worth the draft pick they invested, but he's better then bust status.
