Recently, Bears GM Jerry Angelo held his end of the season press conference, where he offered this pearl of wisdom about the quarterback position:
“I think we have to have competition at that position. We have to keep an eye on that position, more than any. We have to get that position right. I know there’s going to be a lot of talk about a No. 1 receiver, but it starts with the quarterback. It’s all about the quarterback. You don’t win because of wide receivers. You don’t win because of running backs. You win because of the quarterback. We have to get that position stabilized. We’re fixated on that.
So, if you bring Tom Brady in, the Bears win the Super Bowl? Really?
Here’s what I think.
- Great teams win the Super Bowl.
- Great teams have no weaknesses.
- The Bears have lots of weaknesses.
Just sticking to offense, and in approximately the order I’d fix them:
- old, slow, offensive line,
- bad, small receivers,
- no discernible fullback,
- a general lack of depth across all positions,
- mediocre position coaches,
- unproven quarterback who has never been given a real chance with a real offense.
Does bringing Tom Brady, or Drew Brees, or whoever else you like, fix all that, too?
