Mon, 25 Feb 2013|
Should the Bears look at Matt Cassel for Jay Cutler's backup next season? The SportsTalk Live panels debates this and whether or not Cutler should get a contract extension right now - 2/25
The Bears need a backup quarterback the Chiefs are reportedly close to acquiring Alex Smith from the niners so they could have one extra quarterback on their roster. Phil Emery familiar with Kansas City quarterback so what if the Bears well picked up Matt Cassel when the Chiefs waive him when he gets the Tampa. Is is that why. Our quarterback left them for their first post moves. You know it's funny you we think about this experiment if you wanna call that might be almost over with color he I think he's got. He's got a new coach you got a new offensive system I think going into the season we could find out you have to get an extension right now no. I wouldn't. Know I it's a tremendous opportunity for him. That I bet you'll see is I don't know we'll see the results are not but I think we'll realize he's got a coach -- likes of whom he hasn't. Really had -- and since Shanahan a guy who can actually improve some offense I'd I'd I'd wait and see what happens. I think orange didn't they play a third quarterback an actual developmental quarterback on the roster would know I think we have to draft one this year we have -- It's it's a bad year at least average or mediocre year for quarterbacks went to Iowa when Miller Saudi loves EJ Manuel at Florida State thing. I'm not -- big guys got bad mechanics and from what I hear from what they've been saying that the perfect guy for doctor trust and affects. And if you wanted to try to with Tim Tebow can change is his mechanics you know it's almost like you want a quarterback coming out of college who. Those things just right in the -- and if you kind of changes your arm throw. That's tough thing what about Tebow coming here. Oh god no I'm not saying I want -- I've -- -- and that's where this would you like. Critical mass would be reached against him in Minnesota Taylor taken and I you imagine that all what a circus and guys who have always have something personal diary moment anything like that -- you know I can't see him do it. We love to win when Ditka left the Bears and you just you -- dubious story every day. Tail end Tebow Tebow going Taylor's old Robby yourself oh -- yeah I guess -- -- have had the Bears taking. They have high tail it at number twenty not anymore and I know I think. He was terrible in the BCS -- -- why we had a bad -- broad jump and you know I always put a lot of stock absolutely and also people are saying he came in today and -- like twenty pounds lighter and that's the thing he's lighter so he's not lower. And -- I -- -- I didn't -- the -- power that's that's not a good -- I -- field stretching wide receiver in the fourth or fifth round you can also return units that -- so I said I want I don't have a problem and offensive linemen they were nice I completely agree you know sometimes I forget the tight end here 35 and a half inch -- some people say the vertical. Is a best test of an actual athlete positive I understood that I can play I mean it's obviously you -- -- to be different items do you think until you've been in the first round I think he's no I don't think you I think that we have available for the Ravens to 32 to replace ray Lewis and we'll see if they do -- I think. I think the Bears a look at Alec Ogletree who would you rather have would you rather have -- with your your cat fishing drama and -- -- trash talk expectations. Or Alec Ogletree who was. He stole something -- you lied I quiet suspension for drug test but well. At the the NFL as is proven itself that -- they'll take anybody okay so we're gonna go by if you're in that system you take the best player I don't think -- anti K -- -- to fewer than Bears do you trade up to get like Barrett Jones or. One of the great offense -- line -- you have to trade up to get married -- I think he's gone before I I don't I don't think so there's there's other got. I know I think it yeah I want. If you do your big money free agent and your picks one and if you want to offensive line I completely agree it's a bit of media free if you get a free agent tackle -- tomorrow but -- But struck out a New Orleans or Branden Albert I think is going to be a free agent out of Kansas City and then only one of those top you have to -- alignment for me telling you want to cornerback from northwest I thought I -- that. They've both quarterbacks are in the thirties you know peanut Tillman still play as he's doing well but also the -- of almost. Reached like critical mass do they might need a new middle linebacker they -- offensive line without question. Nothing would be better than they have a guy just put in their left tackle and -- He's a guy there was kind of sad that. What's been very good the Catholic guy from Wisconsin 38 career that he he can maybe a guard who knows what he's gonna be 2011 bill. -- is set over the weekend he's a Bears the first thing they get is another game breaking wide receiver. Really and see and you know -- wants one. He wants another when he wants play makers down the middle of the field he said that several times. Felt I felt like somebody lets him stand up to throw the ball -- has an ad has the guts to take another wide receiver in the second round after they just did it as an organization last year when did you -- John -- what about taking Matt Cassel is your back up or do you bring back Jason Campbell what do you do. Jason Campbell's ineffective -- from you basically have nothing so Scully goes I got nothing. Cassel while I mean the Bears have have cap problems right now right a little have a whole lot of money. The you have to not signed -- guys and there's a lot of familiar I don't know Cassell to back up. If not -- often so it's Jay Cutler goes down and you're worried about the back up. It it it doesn't matter over anyway you know she.
