The Vikings have had a lingering problem at quarterback all season.
The Bears could not have scripted a better pop quiz for Jay Cutler to assess his mettle as their franchise quarterback in 2014 and beyond.
For the second time in three NFL months the Bears have brought in a covey of punter prospects after a disappointing performance by incumbent Adam Podlesh.
Coach Marc Trestman says he considers every game the first in the remainder of the “season,” meaning the Bears approach next Sunday’s game with the New Orleans Saints with a 0-0 record.
To suggest that the reason the Bears drafted Kyle Long with the 20th pick of the 2013 first-round was as an answer to Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is a bit of hyperbole.
