    Yeah, Jamarcus Russell has a great arm, too. Don't think any GM would disagree with that, either. Having a great arm doesn't make you a great QB. Having a better arm than another QB doesn't make you better than that QB.

    Romo's has so much will power that he can cover AND tackle Marshall, Forte, Jeffery...no problem. He'll also catch his own passes, rush for 100 yards, and provide his own protection...and sack the QB. Oh, almost forgot, he'll also return and cover all kicks and do all the punting and kicking.
    Now THAT is will power!!!

    It's a ridiculous thing to say.

    Matt Cassel and Matt Flynn look good in limited time too. Cutler has been good for years. McCown has looked good for 3 games and you want to crown him? Smh. If someone with football smarts thought he was better, like his HC, then he would've had a starting gig full time by now.

    3 games? Try 6+. And I'm hardly "crowning him," just saying he's been better than Cutler this season. Your only argument against that is arm strength and "intangibles," and I honestly have no idea what you're referring to with the latter.

    Josh McCown has a 106 QB rating with 9 TDs and only 1int. He's pretty good.
    The main obstacle is winning on the road at Chicago. That's usually an accomplishment for any team.

    I do think Dallas can do it.

    You didn't say McCown is better "this season". You just said "better".

    Woohoo 6 games. That's still limited time. A HC can hide a qb's defeciencies for so long. Ala Matt Flynn Matt Cassel.
    Intangibles= arm strength, accuracy, smarts. He graduated from vandy. He's very smart. I know if McCown was good enough, he'd be starting full time for somebody. But he's not. He's a backup. While cutler is a franchise qb.

    I think McCown gives the Bears the best chance to win. Cutler may be more talented and more experienced, but he takes more chances. McCown plays within the game plan and within his strengths.

    So are you conceding that McCown has been better this season? Because this entire thread/conversation is framed by the Cowboys playing the Bears tomorrow night, so who has had the better career is irrelevant. McCown's 6 games is basically the exact same amount of time that Cutler has QB'd the Bears this season. McCown has been better.

    Arm strength and accuracy aren't intangibles. "Leadership" would be an intangible, but unless you've been in the huddle or the locker room with them, you're really in no place to comment on it. And for what it's worth, McCown's completion % and YPA are both higher than Cutler's. McCown has also been MUCH better at protecting the football. Think that might be important for a QB?
