After weeks of fans playing "Cutty Come Back" over and over in their heads, mourning the injury of starting quarter back Jay Cutler and searching for some sort of relief, the Chicago Bears have finally decided to switch things up. With four consecutive losses behind a struggling Caleb Hanie, it's time for quarterback Josh McCown to take center stage. It's nothing like a return from Cutler, but it can't get much worse, can it?
According to the Chicago Tribune, the Bears announced Wednesday that McCown will start when the Bears take on the Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers Christmas day.
Hanie, who replaced Cutler while recovering from a fractured right thumb, threw three touchdowns and nine interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns in last Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
This will be McCown's first start since 2007 and he told the Tribune, "I will be ready to roll."
What do you think of the switch? Is McCown ready to start? Could he lead the Bears to snapping their four-game skid?
