Bears Release Hanie…Start Planning Scott Franzgrote’s Funeral Now
(ESPN Chicago) – “The Chicago Bears will not bring back Caleb Hanie to back up Jay Cutler, according to a source familiar with the situation.Bears head coach Lovie Smith admitted last month the club needs to formulate a better plan at the backup quarterback position heading into the 2012 regular season. Hanie, an unrestricted free agent, will be free to sign with any NFL team when free agency begins on March 13.”
Stevie Wonder could have predicted this one. Caleb Hanie was absolutely awful last season after Jay went down. The guy threw so many picks you almost wonder if he was colorblind. I hope one of the biggest Bears fans I know, and Caleb Hanie lover Scott Franzgrote isn’t taking this one to hard.
