SB Nation is at it again, this time ranking the quarterbacks of all 32 teams. Not just the starters, although the writer does say "rankings lean heavily on the team's starter", but the entire QB position group. The Chicago QBs are of course led by Jay Cutler, and unlike years past, there's some veteran depth behind Jay Sizzle. With 70 NFL games started under his belt, Jason Campbell was brought in to keep the offense going just in case. And Josh McCown, with 33 starts in his own right, was re-signed.
After the jump we'll take a look at what they had to say about the Bears.
The 13th ranked Chicago Bears...
Jay Cutler is a victim of circumstance. In 2008, his third season, he started to put it all together throwing for 4,526 yards and 25 touchdowns. Then the Broncos hired Josh McDaniels who sent him off to Chicago. His receiving help has improved in Chicago this year, but he will still be asked to play behind the same offensive line that struggles with protection. Bringing in competent game manager Jason Campbell was a smart move by the Bears.
No mention of the aforementioned Josh McCown? I shouldn't be surprised, the caption writer misspelled his name in the picture above. But if anyone can rally the troops over this slight, it's Lovie Smith, playing the no respect card in 3, 2, 1...
We've had a lot of discussions around here about QB lists in the last few weeks, so what's one more? Check out the 12 teams listed higher than Chicago and tell us how you feel about it.
I can think of a particular Lions fan that will be tickled at their 7th place.
