The Chicago Bears QB rumors are pretty much the only thing fans are interested in at this point. That’s perfectly understandable. In this modern NFL, there are two different kinds of teams. Those that have good quarterbacks and those that don’t. This franchise has tried for decades to get into the former category, but with little to no success.
GM Ryan Pace is the latest man to take up this monumental task. For the past two years he’s been carefully biding his time, sticking with known quantities like Jay Cutler and Brian Hoyer to hold things down while he rebuilt the rest of the roster. Now with a solid offensive line, Pro Bowl running back and decent receivers the timing feels right for a change.
What nobody can figure out is who the Bears might actually be focused on. Sure they likely have a short list of options they’d be comfortable with, but who is the name that stands above the rest? There are plenty of media sources that have put in claims stating it’s one guy or another. Perhaps the best way though is to focus on who they aren’t talking about.
