The Chicago Bears have had to use both Jay Cutler and Josh McCown under center this season and both quarterbacks have yielded similar results. Just take a look at this graphic that was posted by Fox Football Daily:
The two quarterbacks have identical numbers, but McCown has done it in less games and he has less interceptions. Just by looking at the numbers, you have to favor Josh McCown on all accounts. Even former Bears LB Brian Urlacher feels that Josh should be running the show.
The way that McCown has played this season, there aren’t many arguments that people can make. Cutler is the big name in town, but McCown produces. The way McCown is throwing the football around, the Bears can afford to let Cutler shop around for a new team in the offseason.
McCown was the journeyman quarterback for the most of his career, but he looks like a solid NFL starter under head coach Marc Trestman. What are the Bears going to do when Jay Cutler is healthy and ready to go? It seems that the best decision would be to stick with the hot hand, but Trestman keeps reiterating that Cutler will start when he is healthy.
Who would you start?
