It's just Chi's luck that the year they are this fucking bad there isn't a viable QB available in the first round. The history of this franchise at the QB position is astounding. 

That really doesn't matter if the top 5 picks in the draft were the best college QB to ever come out the Bears would reach for a different QB who would never turn out to be nothing more then a turn over king or a another Jay Cutler

 

This sounds like 99....are you talking about 99? Cade McNown.... draft day 1999.... I was so angry I think I became physically ill... Bears traded back because no one in that group wanted a QB and they would still be able to snag Daunte Culpepper.... then Minnesota traded ahead of them... and so they take McNown anyway... I'm not sure who was in that war room that day but whomever it was that said to take McNown and had him rated the same as Culpepper....I normally don't wish bad things on people but I really hope that guy got a flat tire soon after that pick... Not saying Culpepper ended up any better but at least he had some decent years, probably more to do with being able to throw to Moss and Carter than his own abilities but Cade McNown was such an awful college QB, I just never understood why he even had a first round grade and then having to watch as Chicago drafted him...it was gut wrenching... it especially hurts to know that the guy that was drafted in their original draft spot is pretty much a hall of fame player, Champ Bailey

That's how I felt about the Benson pick. We had a solid quality RB in Thomas Jones. I suppose with his injury history I could see why they might be worried, but he was so much better than Benson ever dreamt of. If we would have taken DeMarcus Ware or even Antrel Rolle at 4 instead, the odds of winning in 2006 would have gone drastically up. But such is life. Now we just cannot find 1st round picks that stay healthy. 

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.

I'd really like for that mock draft to come true...

The more I research Hooker, the more I think he should be the Bear's  #3 pick. Comparisons to Ed Reed of the Ravens seems to be a common theme! They don't come around like this very often......And yes I know a safety @ 3 might be a stretch, but how many years are the Bears going to fumble this position away trying to fill it in the latter rounds....

Just a FYI....

Trubisky the NC QB declared for the draft today......

So more draft candidates to sort thru for the Bears.

JJ is say that HH insiders are stating that Pace is of the mind set that even if they decide to draft a QB and that's not even a guarantee at this point, he intends to bring 3 if not  all 4 of the QBs now on the team back next year,  and as far as anyone knows Barkley maybe the odd man out, not Cutler

This was their rating going into the draft? I thought Barkley's stock took a nose dive because he stayed in school. I remember the Bills reaching on EJ. I know I've been a Watson hater on these boards but he looked pretty good tonight. I still hope the Bears pass. Ideally, if we could get Kizer or Mahome in the 2nd that would be fantastic.

When I played pro football, I never set out to hurt anyone deliberately - unless it was, you know, important, like a league game or something. - D Butkus.

Wow, that would go against most of the speculation wouldn't it! 

Does anyone else remember Pace's hiring press conference where he said he would draft a QB each year? Well he's going on his third draft and still no QB. Granted there are a lot more pressing positions of need, but Bears can't keep kicking the can down the road.

JAB, please say hi to JJ from me. He's in my thoughts! smiley

Typical, when you look at the Quality of performances of each of the top rated QB from each of these draft classes... everyone bar Barkley has had some success as an NFL starter! It's hard not to wish we had the top QB from the year before. Andrew Luck as a Bear would be incredible

I really hope we didn't just watch the next Bears flop at QB play in that NC game.... it's kinda distressing to see how, a QB with all the experience Watson has, rattled and out of sorts the way he was in the first half, if Bama had been able to sustain any drives in the first half or score a couple more time, I think that game ends up along the lines of the USC game and Bama wins big going away with Watson never really finding himself.  Clemson's defense held them in that game when he was completely out of it and then he finally settled himself, but he's a two year starter who looked scared to me.
