    Can't be worse than Quinn, that's for sure.

    I'm surprised it took them this long. Couch would be a viable alternative to Quinn, and you can always let him go when Grossman is back healthy next year.

    Houston, again.
    If Couch approaches it like he did the Greenbay deal, it will be hard for them to get a deal done. He was looking for a multi-year deal and big dollars. The washout at GB will probably change that tune though.

    Yea, he needs to secure a steady job before making salary demands. He may not get very many chances to resurrect his career.

    If he does make it at Chicago. Where else is there to go CFL or NFL Europe? So I bet he won't be too demanding about the deal.

    I'm surprised he hasn't gotten a call from Miami. (Or maybe he has, and just saw Miami as a suicide mission)

    Radio says the Bears are still not commiting. It's not about money for them. Man, Cleveland has done the worse job drafting 1st rders, Cincy is a close 2nd.

    Couch is not being signed by the Bears. As a Bears fan I am glad he isn't. I don't like Couch. We have a better QB than him anyway. Craig Krenzel will be a viable backup QB to Rex Grossman.
