Five most likely destinations for Tony Romo
0

3. Chicago Bears

Jay Cutler is finished in Chicago. He might start for the remainder of the season, but the writing is most definitely on the wall here. With two wins on the season, the Bears may also be considering a coaching change.

Unfortunately, those two wins do push the Bears back a notch behind both Cleveland and San Francisco when it comes to selecting at the top of the draft. If that’s the case, and with no other realistic quarterback option on the roster, Chicago might very well be forced to go for the second or third quarterback option in the draft if it is unable to add a veteran signal caller.

We know the Bears have shown some interest in Miami (F) quarterback Brad Kaaya, but selecting him anywhere near the top 10 would seem to be a tad of a reach. Instead, logic could suggest that the Bears look at a stopgap option while adding a prospect later in the draft.

There’s a lot more moving parts here than in New York or San Francisco. For the most part, we know both of those teams will be retaining their head coaches. Hence, the schemes they run likely won’t change from this season to next. That’s what makes those destinations more likely than Chicago.

Assuming for a second John Fox somehow retains his job and keeps his current coaching staff, a scenario could be in place for Romo to act as an upgrade over Cutler within the same scheme. It relies on a strong arm and quick decision making, two things that Romo himself has proven he’s capable of. Just some food for thought.

In my opinion, the one glaring fault of Romo is he can't stay healthy/on the field! So how exactly would the Bears be any better off with him on the roster? So then the Bears also need a competent backup QB, cause I think Hoyer isn't coming back next season also.

The Bears just need to draft the best QB at whatever their first draft position happens to be! Quit kicking the can down the road.....they have to " shoot the moon" here at some point, pull the trigger and believe that your coaching staff can develop your next future franchise QB.

I have to disagree, I can easily see Fox letting Jay go and keeping Hoyer as our starter in transition to a draft pick. To be honest, I would rather see that than bringing in Romo, or any of the other veterans that currently might be looking for work next year. 

I still think there is a chance Shaw comes back and competes for a starting position. I am pulling for him!

My two cents -

Hoyer could very well come back to be the starter, if Fox is still in charge.  Granny Fox likes him a game manager, protect the ball and be ready to win at the end, when the defense gives them the opportunity. That is his entire philosophy in a nut shell. ("A punt is sometimes as good as a first down".....John Fox)

So look for Hoyer to come back and be pushed by Shaw. Barkley will be let go and a Rookie should start on the depth chart at the QB3 position. (Remember Fox does not like playing Rookies at all).

They had pretty much moved on from Jay before, Hoyer's broken arm changed the plan.

Jay is done in Chicago, question remains if the Bears will try to trade him or just cut him outright.  Is there a QB needy team out there with a coach who thinks he can survive with Jay at the helm? Is Gase truly enamored with Tannenbaum? Would he pursue a reunion with Jay?

As to any other vets out there that will be available?  I know Pace is pretty high on Garroppollo from NE.  He should be a free agent this coming off-season. He played his college ball in Illinois, so the Bears would like a home coming to him. A chance to compete for the starting job could be all it takes to bring him in. Especially since the competition is Hoyer and maybe Shaw. It is pretty much common knowledge that he isn't interested in waiting for Brady to retire.

As to Romo to the Bears, I can without a doubt say HELL NO!

Guy is one step away from being a paraplegic.  And has always been over rated his entire career.  Plus he chokes every time the pressure is on. He chokes more than Rodgers does.

What a difference a week makes. 

 

One week we are watching Cutler and screaming for Hoyer cause at least he won't lose the game for us.  The next week we are sick of Hoyer cause he can't win a game and can only throw the ball 5 yards. Then we are back to Cutler and low and behold a win, and maybe we will see a streak of games now, see we knew Hoyer sucked, then the very next game week Cutler sucks we are done with him bring back Hoyer next year and dump Cutler.

I hope you are not lumping me in that? I still will take Jay over Hoyer any day of the week. I was only pointing out what I could see Fox and Pace doing.

Jay had a bad game last week. It happens to him and to most QBs. Tampa came in ready to take advantage of his weaknesses. And Loggains let them do it. He took Jays bad game and magnified it with crappy play calling again. Our QB cant get shit done but our RBs are averaging over 6 yards a carry. Lets keep throwing it... Brillant.

Injuries and age are the reason I don't want Romo in Chicago. Romo is 3 years older than Cutler. I would be ok with bringing back Hoyer on a 1, maybe a 2 year deal, and develop a young QB that they could get through the draft.

lol we have no friggin line! Romo is a gunslinger and with this shit show of a line in Chicago he would, like Shadow said, be one hit away from a serious injury or worse! lmao...fix the fkn line already!!
