That he would provide some hope that the Bears could finally move on from Jay Cutler. Ken's Note: No, Steve, the whole point of Matt Barkley is that he's a backup QB who was pressed into service because the Bears starting QB is injured, and the Bears backup QB is out for the year, and the Bears backup-backup QB is out for the year. Barkley is not, was not, and will never be a guy who will provide "hope" for a franchise. That "F" you got in Logic Studies 208 in college didn't mean "Fantastic!" my good man. Thank you for another load of RosenPyrite.
