While other teams are falling out of the playoff race because they are force to play their backup quarterback, the Chicago Bears remain steady. At 6-4, the Bears are tied for the NFC North division lead and are in the hunt for a Wildcard berth if a division title isn’t in the cards. A big reason for this is the play of backup quarterback Josh McCown.
McCown isn’t lighting the world on fire a la Nick Foles, but he’s been steady. In four games of fill-in duty for Jay Cutler, McCown has thrown 5 TDs and 0 INTs while helping the Bears to a 2-2 record.
And while McCown’s play is enough for some to proclaim that he deserves to be the starter, McCown disagree, at least publicly.
