Ranking the positions: QB

I have decided to come back WCG, I found my previous site dull in some sorts. I missed my fellow WCGers, I'm glad to be back. :D

***

The rankings are based on which string they are on the depth chart.

Cutler is a starter, Campbell is a second string, and McCown is a third string. I am not ranking them on the same level. I am comparing Cutler to other starters (like Ben Roethlisberger) and I am comparing Campbell to other second string QBs (not to Cutler or any other starters).

The Bears have improved in many different positions this offseason and one of those positions was the QB position. So what would you rank the Bears QB position 1 out of 10? This is my analysis and ranking of the Bears upgraded QB position.

Jay Cutler:

Overall, Cutler has been relatively underrated. Cutler can make a lot of plays with the ball whether that is inside the pocket or outside the pocket. Last year Cutler really impressed me with his ability to stay on his feet long enough, even with a heavy blitz and a weak offensive line, and get the ball out of there. Cutler also had thrown a lot less questionable throws and most of the interceptions that he had threw were actually more the WRs fault than anything. Cutler has a big arm which also allows him to throw either deep down the field quickly or throw the ball into tiny holes that will close quickly. Overall, Cutler can work on his accuracy a bit but Cutler can still prove this season that he is a top ten QB in the league.

Ranking: 8

Jason Campbell:

Last year Campbell went down with an injury early in the season and never was able to come back. Within that time the Raiders had traded for the Bengals QB, Carson Palmer. Palmer was once a top five QB in the league but had since decreased with his unhappiness in Cincinnati. Since his starting job had been taken Campbell wanted to go somewhere that he could prove that he deserves a starting job somewhere so he chose the Chicago Bears. Before Campbell had gotten injured last year he was doing a great job. Campbell has always been great at making plays with the ball in his hands (that's how he had gotten injured) but his accuracy had seemed to of improved. Overall, Campbell is a huge improvement over last years back-up QB, Caleb Hanie.

Ranking: 8

Josh McCown:

In the last two games of the '11 - '12 season, McCown had started when Caleb Hanie had been benched. McCown had done a great job with having a combined completion percentage of 63.6% and two touchdowns. Overall, with having a very unconfident team at the end of the season, McCown had done a great job of boosting team moral with good QB production after very pitiful play over the last four games. Also McCown had brought something that the Bears hadn't produced in five games, A WIN.

Ranking: 7

Nathan Enderle:

I had seen nothing of this guy last year. Mike Martz wanted this guy and so the Bears had selected him in the draft. But after 16 games there was no sight of him on the field. There is no way I can rank him.

Ranking: N/A

***

Overall Ranking: 7.5

The Bears are in a good place within their QB position. They have Jay Cutler who is possibly the best QB to ever be in the Bears association along with a back-up QB who could be starting elsewhere. Overall, the Bears are in a great position and this ranking could possibly go up if Cutler and Campbell play how I think they should.
