Bears | Team will look to bolster quarterback position

Thu, 23 Feb 2006 20:02:38 -0800

Larry Mayer, of ChicagoBears.com, reports the Chicago Bears remain committed to QB Rex Grossman as their starting quarterback, but they'll look to bolster the all-important position this offseason in free agency and perhaps even the NFL Draft. General manager Jerry Angelo relayed that message to reporters at the NFL Combine Thursday, Feb. 23. "We've got to get that quarterback position stabilized," Angelo said. "If we don't get that stabilized, it's very hard to play around that." It seems that the ideal quarterback for the Bears would be one who's willing to accept a reserve role while possessing the ability and confidence to produce when called upon. Angelo told reporters that there's a chance the team won't acquire any quarterbacks and could line up again in 2006 with Grossman, QB Kyle Orton and QB Jeff Blake. The general manager also stressed that bolstering the position is not his lone objective.

Bears | Will Scan the Waiver Wire

Tue, 30 Aug 2005 04:42:27 -0700

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo confirmed the Bears will be looking closely at the waiver wire in the next six days to see which quarterbacks are set free, and they could juggle the depth chart behind rookie QB Kyle Orton. A host of veteran quarterbacks who might be released could interest the Bears, who have yet to see how QB Jeff Blake will grasp the offense. "I'm not going to sit here and tell you I feel great about our quarterback situation,'' said Angelo. "You can't play around the quarterback,'' he said. "I've changed my tune on that over the years. A quarterback's got to make plays, and we feel very strongly that that's what Kyle is going to bring to the position.''

Bears | Blake Could Push Orton for No. 2 QB Job

Wed, 24 Aug 2005 21:41:20 -0700

John Mullin, of the Chicago Tribune, reports Chicago Bears QB Jeff Blake could push rookie QB Kyle Orton for the team's No. 2 quarterback job, according to head coach Lovie Smith. "The only given right now is that Chad (Hutchinson) is our starter," Smith said, "and we'll go from there." Working against Blake is his late arrival. He hasn't had enough time in the Bears' offense to mount a real challenge to Orton, or to Hutchinson, for that matter. And he might not now that the preseason is winding down. Working for Blake is his experience with the Bears offensive playbook. He has run virtually every Bears play in one form or another in an NFL career that has included stops with six other teams.
