NFL Ranks Chicago Bears Based on QB Depth Chart

Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears are towards the bottom of the list in another NFL ranking according to Bucky Brooks.

The NFL ranks the Bears 20th in Brooks’ best quarterback situations. The list was based off of QB depth charts league wide. The top five in order were the Colts, Saints, Chargers, Packers(ew), and the Broncos.

Brooks had this to say about the 20th ranked Bears QBs.

Starter: Jay Cutler

Backups: Jimmy Clausen and David Fales

Cutler could be the most talented quarterback in the league, but injuries have kept him from fulfilling his potential as a leader in Chicago. The vet has missed 13 starts over the past four seasons, and his absences have derailed the Bears‘ title hopes. This year, coach Marc Trestman will make it a point to keep Cutler upright in the pocket, to maximize the ridiculous talent on the perimeter (Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery). Clausen failed miserably as a starter in Carolina in 2010 (52.5 percent completion rate, 3:9 touchdown-to-interception ratio, 1-9 record), but he offers some upside as a young pocket passer with solid physical tools.

The Bears backup quarterback situation may not look elite, but I would not put them at 20, right behind the Cardinals(19) and right above the Vikings(21).

What do you think Bears fans, is this a fair ranking, or is it too low for Cutler, Clausen, and Fales?
