The Chicago Tribune reports Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo said that he feels there's no comparison when looking at QB Chad Hutchinson now and last year. "He's much more prepared," said Angelo of Hutchinson. "He's been with us an offseason. He's comfortable with the system. He just needs the reps. And we have plenty of time to give them to him now."

The Chicago Tribune reports Chicago Bears WR Justin Gage has developed a rapport with QB Chad Hutchinson. "Chad (has) been feeding the ball to me more," said Gage. "That could just be the plays and the way the defense is playing them. And it's the quarterback building confidence up. I definitely feel (QB Rex Grossman) had confidence in me. Rex is more of a guy who will do it by the book but also likes to take a chance. Chad right now is getting comfortable and doing (plays) more by the book."

K.C. Johnson, of the Chicago Tribune, reports Chicago Bears QB Chad Hutchinson was 1-4 as a starter last year, and was knocked because of his slow release and tendency to take too many sacks. Hutchinson has said he has improved on those aspects through game experience and off-season work on his footwork. "In our system, the most important thing is making quick decisions and getting rid of the ball," said Bears offensive coordinator Ron Turner. "I say it all the time: 'I want the ball out of your hand. If it's out of your hand and complete for a 3-yard gain, that's fine.' I'd rather have the ball in someone's hand running with it than in the quarterback's hand. Chad's gotten better at that."

K.C. Johnson, of the Chicago Tribune, reports the Chicago Bears' starting quarterback is QB Chad Hutchinson's to lose. "I feel like I have the confidence of everybody on the team," said Hutchinson. "I was there last year. I stepped in with no reps and in the first game led us to victory. I know they have confidence in me, and I'm going to prove it again."
