The Chicago Bears have the following quarterbacks on their roster: Brian Hoyer, Matt Barkley, and Jay Cutler. Two of those dudes are bad. The other has an injured thumb and the disposition of a disgruntled tabby cat. Not the most enviable position to be in, but let’s see how john Fox plans to figure it out.
Fox expanded on the QB situation later and expressed the slimmest possible amount of confidence in Hoyer (who, to be fair, had a good game this weekend):
“I think we’re managing it well,” Fox said. “It kind of is what it is, and everybody on the team knows that Brian Hoyer is the quarterback right now and that’s where all our focus is going. I think Jay understands that, too. Moving forward, I can’t predict the future — otherwise I’d be in a different line of work. But I think everybody’s handling it professionally.”
At least they have the Jags next week.
