Predicting the Bears opening day roster: Quarterbacks


Over a series of upcoming posts, we’ll take a look at how the Bears 2010 opening day roster will shape up at several key positions. First up, THE key position – Quarterback.

Lock: That Cutler dude.

Limbo: Caleb Hanie, Dan LeFevour.

Prediction: Cutler, a veteran TBD, Hanie.

Besides Cutler, there’s potential for this unit to look drastically different from ’09, when the Bears only kept Cutler and Hanie on the 53-man active roster. There’s been talk of adding a veteran who’s schooled in Martz’s Greatest Show on Turf scheme, and Marc Bulger or Josh McNown make waaaay too much sense.

I think Martz will lobby hard to keep 3 QBs around and get his way. It will be interesting to see who sticks at third string. While the club is high on LeFevour, I can’t see them giving up on Hanie, a two-year project who’s shown glimpses of goodness…against backups…in preseason games. Unless they think they can get something in return for him as far as a trade is concerned, I think he’ll stick.

Assuming he clears waivers, LeFevour’s destined for the practice squad.
