McCown will probably stay on as the backup. He said he might retire so I would assume he just stays or retires.

that's my guess too. I did see that his deal with Chicago is kind of daft in that had they just offered him literally $1 more dollar over the minimum they'd have more ability to keep him or at least sign his extension sooner than March.

He's a good backup for anyone and certainly one of the cheaper ones. I think it's also interesting according to the article that he's built a good relationship with Cutler so Chicago should endeavor to keep him.

The only person I have heard say that Champ didn't want to play Safety is you. your quote from Champ never supported that statement. Without facts, this is a spin.

He's asking John Kitna about getting a teaching gig.

Seriously, that Kitna one week rental was pretty cool. Did you hear he plans to donate his 50k paycheck (for ther week) to the school where he teaches and to the teams he coaches? That's pretty awesome if true.

Just about every GM with a legit relationship with his coach will ask opinions. That's part of the evaluation. What is a coach going to say "No I don't want a potential upgrade over x."

And people are wondering why they are having a hard time selling out. That's frostbite weather right there.

You do get that that is not remotely the same thing as what you alluded to right? The guy has never been a GM and can't be blamed for the failures of the GM he played under. Come on now.

It is supposed to be -9 on Monday here in Chi-Town per my iphone weather app.

It was only 16 as a high here today and that seemed warm. With the sun out some snow was melting and when I ran to the library I didn't even button my coat.

Wow...you're not really trying to claim Lovie had no say so over who plays for the team are you?

I would hope a coach wouldn't say "no" when the possibility of an upgrade is proposed.....

my whole point was that Lovie was asked about and knew who the Bears were gonna sign to be his team's QB.

Others are basically claiming he just coaches whoever the hell they sign and draft and that he had no input over who comes or goes.
