Perhaps the Bears considered signing Donovan McNabb last night and this morning in the wake of Caleb Hanie’s latest ugly performance.
Lovie Smith made it clear at his press conference Monday that they aren’t considering McNabb any more. Like Devin Hester, Smith seems to view any additions as a waste of time.
“That’s our group. We’re going to make improvements. We’re not looking on the outside,” Smith said. “We don’t have a quarterback tryout or anything like that.”
That group is Hanie, rookie Nathan Enderle, and recent pickup Josh McCown. Smith isn’t considering replacing Hanie after his second straight three interception game.
“Caleb’s our quarterback,” Smith said.
That should remind Bears fans of Lovie’s old catchphrase: “Rex is our quarterback.”
Smith also denied a report that Mike Martz will not be back with the team next year.
“That has to be made up. Nothing like that came from me,” Smith said.
So, to review: Nothing to see here folks.
