Bears News Update - David Fales leads early poll as backup QB option

In tonight's Bears news update, former San Jose State standout quarterback David Fales seems to be gaining the trust of Chicago Bears fans as the man to back up Jay Cutler at quarterback.

Pro Football Rumors is currently running a poll asking fans who they think should be the backup quarterback for the team after Josh McCown's exit via free agency this offseason to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

At the present moment, 2014 sixth-round pick David Fales leads the early voting with 52.38% of the vote. 2007 sixth-round pick Jordan Palmer is currently the choice in the locker room, but sits at 38.1% of the vote as of this writing.

Jerrod Johnson brings up the rear with 9.52%.

As Pro Football Rumors' Peter Sowards puts it, "whoever wins the spot has big shoes to fill — McCown shined bright last season filling in for an injured Jay Cutler, leading the league in fewest interceptions per throw and winning three of five starts. The biggest reason for his success, per quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh, was the relationship he shared with Cutler."
