Who's their backup now?

Some punkass CSU Rams QB? Good move in my opinion.

BTW, there is nothing wrong with drafting a QB and developing for any situation. Hell, look at Charlie Whitehearst. Were you b****ing about Philip Rivers job when he was drafted by the CHargers? Ha ha. DA. He hasn't started a game yet was traded for a high round draft pick. THat's a good investment.

Dan is going to be a player in this league. Right it down! Not sure if it is on the Bears but he has talent. I am putting it down now. He might even make Cutler sweat for his job, but I see Cutler playing much better than last year as he will throw 5 less ints and at least 5 more TDs.

One of my Friends is a Bears fan. Last year he was all hyped about getting Cutler , and I warned him that Cutler was an interception machine/head case.

So he sent me an E-mail after the Tebow pick saying we were doomed, having drafted a lefthanded QB that can't throw. I asked him who the Bears got with their first round pick? Haven't heard from him again yet.
This is just TOO good!~...Not gonna ask him about it tho....

It's all speculation right now of course. However, if the bears just wanted depth or a good back up for Cutler, why draft LeFevour? Why not just bring in a Brian Griese type?

You have to think this is a little strange.

It was never about the draft picks. It has always been about the next 4-10 years on whether the Broncos let a great QB get away.

Don't worry....McD knows he screwed up trading away Cutler and needs to cover his tracks by searching for a franchise QB.

Plus Caleb Hanie was supposed to take over as the Starter for them by week 12 of last year per the OM...

They have no one past Haine and need someone to run the scout team.

They got a S, DE, CB and QB, I still think they should have picked up some OL depth but they filled some needs.

Overheard from a Bears fan, singing in falsetto...

"Listen to the count
there is movement all around
there is somethin' goin' down
and Jay can feel it.

Ball spirals out in the air
they're fightin' out there
If it's somethin' the defense can share
they can steal it.

And that pouty QB
He slumps to the line
He's killin -- the coach and the fans
Lovie signals for Dan
and we know it's all right

Cuz we got LeFevour, LeFevour
He knows how to do it.
Give us LeFevour, LeFevour
He knows how to throw it..."

(To "Saturday Night Fever," of course.)

Ugh. I've injured myself with that image of a Bears fan singing in falsetto.

Gruden said his throwing motion is fine. He said he loves the kid.

I'd say McDaniels pedigree might be worth considering, as well. He's worked with a few good QBs in his day.

He thought the guy was worthy of a 1st round pick.

So, clearly some people with an intimate knowledge of the game believe he was worth taking. We took him in the 1st. He wasn't getting out of the second, so clearly... the NFL views him as a guy with enough upside to add to their roster.

Considering the value of Boldin, who was traded to Balt, to get two 2's for Marshall actually was a nice haul.

Solid 8. A 4 (again, in my humble opinion) on the raging douche meter would only be deserving of someone with proper punctuation, semi-amusing sarcasm (used properly of course), and at least ONE reference to McDaniels using an unintelligble spin off of his last name. I think the height of the number score directly relates to the ****tiness of their posting ability....

I'd say McDaniels pedigree might be worth considering, as well. He's worked with a few good QBs in his day.

He thought the guy was worthy of a 1st round pick.



There is a big difference between coaching QB's (which is what McDaniels did in NE), and evaluating QB talent. There was no indication that McDaniels was ever involved in personnel decisions at NE, and he certainly wasn't involved in selecting Brady or Cassel for NE.

Let's recap what we know of McDaniels QB evaluation abilities.

He signed Chris Simms as the backup QB last year for 3.5M/year. He played horribly and is no longer on the team.

He preferred to have Cassel over Cutler as his QB. As bad as Cutler played last year, he still looked better than Cassel.

He preferred Kyle Orton over Jason Campbell for his starting QB last year. Orton played reasonably well last season, (probably a career year), but it is still debatable if he is better than Campbell.

McDaniels spent a fifth round pick on Brandstater last year. It is doubtful he makes the team this year. This happens a lot with late round picks, but it looks like Denver missed with him.

McDaniels traded for Brady Quinn, who some would have you believe that he coveted last year. It remains to be seen how that will work out, but the drafting of Tebow makes you wonder what their plans and expectations of Quinn really are.

Now, McDaniels has drafted a first round QB in Tebow that will certainly define McDaniels true abilities to evaluate and develop NFL QBs. The jury will be out on this one for a while, but there are certainly a number of experts (and teams) that disagree with McDaniels assessment.

So, what exactly in McDaniels history gives you the confidence that he truly knows how to evaluate NFL quarterbacks?

Mike Shanahan didn't draft John Elway or Steve Young.

I'd would still trust his opinion with regards to selecting a QB, and evaluating talent.

McDaniels comes with a similar pedigree... and I'm going to give him some credit in that department, as well.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/football/bears/ct-spt-0425-jay-cutler-bears-expo--20100424,0,7526044.story

Moments into Saturday's Bears Expo question-and-answer session with Jay Cutler, Caleb Hanie and Chester Taylor, radio play-by-play voice Jeff Joniak announced the Bears had taken Central Michigan quarterback Dan LeFevour in the sixth round of the NFL draft.

"Why you gotta bring that up?'' the Bears franchise quarterback said with a smirk.

He knows it's simply smart to have insurance behind him, and he vowed to have a better second season with the Bears.

"We'll be in the playoffs,'' Cutler answered one fan.

That's somewhat of a bold statement, but the Bears appear to have made enough bold moves to put themselves in postseason contention despite concerns about their offensive line and defensive backfield.

With the addition of defensive end Julius Peppers and running back Taylor, along with offensive coordinator Mike Martz, they should be stronger.

Many wondered if a Cutler-Martz marriage would work, considering the way Martz criticized Cutler's demeanor while an analyst for the NFL Network last season. But so far the two seem to have built a solid working relationship starting from the moment Martz made a January visit to Nashville to meet with the quarterback.

Cutler gushed about his new coach Saturday.

"He knows what he's doing," he said. "There's a method to it. It's just a little bit unconventional, which is fine.

"It's a lot of timing. I wouldn't say that it's harder to learn (than the West Coast system). It's just something different. … It's a little bit longer verbiage. We do a lot more shifts. Little things, little details you just have to get used to. He definitely knows defenses, and he knows how to attack defenses.''

Not that he needed a reminder of his struggles last season, but one die-hard fan took the microphone and peppered Cutler with questions about his 26 interceptions and the lack of protection from the offensive line.

Cutler ignored the reference to the interceptions but spoke up for the line.

"Our offensive line, I think we're going to be OK,'' Cutler said. "We have Mike Tice coaching those guys up, so I have no issues with our offensive line.''

With rumors swirling about the possible trade of tight end Greg Olsen, Cutler talked up his good friend's role in the new offense, too.

"One of (Martz's) specialties is trying to find ways to create matchups for guys, and Greg is the ultimate matchup guy," Cutler said. "You can put him on corners, safeties, linebackers. Once we get into this, and (Olsen) sees how many different ways we can use him, he's going to be excited."

coach McD took a team with a offense that only needed a healthy stud RB to punch it into the endzone and picked an avg rb with the 12th pick. the no. 12 pick in the entire draft couldnt break 1000 even tho he played every game and never got hurt. his longest run was 36 yards and the guy we got from the mall at the cell phone kiosk ran for a 37 yard gain the year before?
Mcd benches marshall and devalues his trade value and that dumbass Bill Parcells-Bill Parcells picks him up on the cheap thanks to McDs amaturesm.

Quinn has been ****, too. He has done nothing in the NFL, but there are fans here who would take him over Cutler in a heartbeat.

At least Cutler enjoyed a solid 2007 campaign and played at a Pro Bowl level for three months in 2008.

There is a big difference between coaching QB's (which is what McDaniels did in NE), and evaluating QB talent. There was no indication that McDaniels was ever involved in personnel decisions at NE, and he certainly wasn't involved in selecting Brady or Cassel for NE.

Let's recap what we know of McDaniels QB evaluation abilities.

He signed Chris Simms as the backup QB last year for 3.5M/year. He played horribly and is no longer on the team.

He preferred to have Cassel over Cutler as his QB. As bad as Cutler played last year, he still looked better than Cassel.

He preferred Kyle Orton over Jason Campbell for his starting QB last year. Orton played reasonably well last season, (probably a career year), but it is still debatable if he is better than Campbell.

McDaniels spent a fifth round pick on Brandstater last year. It is doubtful he makes the team this year. This happens a lot with late round picks, but it looks like Denver missed with him.

McDaniels traded for Brady Quinn, who some would have you believe that he coveted last year. It remains to be seen how that will work out, but the drafting of Tebow makes you wonder what their plans and expectations of Quinn really are.

Now, McDaniels has drafted a first round QB in Tebow that will certainly define McDaniels true abilities to evaluate and develop NFL QBs. The jury will be out on this one for a while, but there are certainly a number of experts (and teams) that disagree with McDaniels assessment.

So, what exactly in McDaniels history gives you the confidence that he truly knows how to evaluate NFL quarterbacks?

Exactly! And great overall observation. Why so many fans on the OM put so much faith and trust in McD......is beyond me.

Why draft a backup QB at all, esp. with so many other problems like their pourous offensive line?

Couldn't they have brought a QB via FA and not had to spend a draft pick on a "backup" QB?

Or, is LeFevour just too much talent to pass up? Yah know, as a backup QB?

There is a big difference between coaching QB's (which is what McDaniels did in NE), and evaluating QB talent. I'd say that if you can coach quarterbacks up like he has, you probably have a pretty good idea of what you need to start with.

Let's recap what we know of McDaniels QB evaluation abilities.

He signed Chris Simms as the backup QB last year for 3.5M/year. He played horribly and is no longer on the team. Simms had a pretty good preseason and then fell apart against two of the better defenses in the league after being out of the league for how long? The kid nearly died on the field back in 2006 and McD gave him a shot. It didn't work out, but that happens.

He preferred to have Cassel over Cutler as his QB. As bad as Cutler played last year, he still looked better than Cassel. Proven absolutely false 100 times over.

He preferred Kyle Orton over Jason Campbell for his starting QB last year. Orton played reasonably well last season, (probably a career year), but it is still debatable if he is better than Campbell. And his choice was pretty well justified last year.

McDaniels spent a fifth round pick on Brandstater last year. It is doubtful he makes the team this year. This happens a lot with late round picks, but it looks like Denver missed with him. I don't think we missed on him. We simply upgraded to better players.

McDaniels traded for Brady Quinn, who some would have you believe that he coveted last year. It remains to be seen how that will work out, but the drafting of Tebow makes you wonder what their plans and expectations of Quinn really are. McD pretty clearly covets Quinn, and I'm sure he still does, but Tebow is hard to pass up. If both of them pan out, one could easily be flipped for picks or another player.

Now, McDaniels has drafted a first round QB in Tebow that will certainly define McDaniels true abilities to evaluate and develop NFL QBs. The jury will be out on this one for a while, but there are certainly a number of experts (and teams) that disagree with McDaniels assessment. Some of the best draft analysts (Mayock and Gruden) are very high on Tebow.

So, what exactly in McDaniels history gives you the confidence that he truly knows how to evaluate NFL quarterbacks?

Brady, Cassel, Orton.

Campbell is not better than Orton. DC couldn't get rid of Campbell fast enough and had to accept a 4th rounder in 2 years for him. I think Orton would get better value

Yeah because you can always tell about a QB after the first year....

When do you look for a new job? When you already have one or when you are fired. I have no problem with the team bringing in many QB's that may be able to start and have them compete. QB's are like gold, if you strike on a few, you have valuable trading assets. Look what Whitehurst netted the Bolts. What do you think Quinn, Orton, Bannaststreateateter, or Tebow would net if they all proved to be good starters? If they crap out, then you lose little

If experts were right, they'd be working for teams and not covering the draft. For all the acclaim Mayock gets (I think he is the tops along with Profootball weekly's Naroski). They are only right say 30% of the time.....

I remember back in the day everyone crapping on Shanahan for drafting the following players Neil (trading up for him in the 4th when most projected him to be a late rounder) and Royal....

You have the perfect spot for Tebow. He gets probably 2 years of protection of not having to play and when he steps in, hopefully he is worth it. It is an investment that is risky but has the potential to pay off.

I am not a Tebow fan by the way....

The QB position for the Broncos (according to many posters here) is not a position of strength. Remember, McD traded away "the franchise" and brought in a scrub.

So, drafting Tebow is arguably a great move. However, those same posters who claim Orton is a bad QB are probably many of the same posters who now criticize the Tebow pick.

I find it ironic that 'the franchise' now has competition from a drafted QB. It's also very telling IMHO that the Bears, who only had 4 picks in this draft, spent one on a QB.

The Broncos had how many picks? Josh parlayed the draft into multiple picks and got the playes he valued. There's a huge difference in what the Broncos did and what the Bears did in this draft.

I remember that the Bears were considered a good team due to their quality running game and defense. Most pundits thought that Cutler immediately upgraded their offense and made them a contendar in the NFCN.

We all know what happened.

I think I was one of the posters who claimed that the Bear's defense wasn't all that great when Orton was playing for them and that the Bear's defense was in need of help. That being said, no one can really explain why the Bear's sucked so bad with Cutler. They had/have a decent running game, right?!? So, what happened?
