You might be aware of this already, but we have an NFL team in town that can’t get the quarterback position right. I don’t want to suggest that the Bears are cursed in this regard, but if they were somehow gifted with Tom Brady, there’s a good chance he’d immediately forget how to grip a football.
You might be aware of this, too, but you have to go back to Sid Luckman to find the team’s last true star quarterback. That’s a bummer because he grew up with George Washington.
So the Bears are in a very bad predicament, exacerbated by the presence of two people – general manager Ryan Pace and coach Matt Nagy — whose job security is tied to their ability to solve the quarterback problem.
