Curious as to whether the Bears might be considering adding Chicago-native Donovan McNabb for the playoff run? Don’t mean to burst your bubble but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen, at least going by Lovie Smith’s comments on the matter. Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune tweeted on Friday: “Lovie Smith was asked about prospect of Bears claiming Donovan McNabb: ‘I like our QBs we have here right now.’”
The Bears QBs include Jay Cutler who may be out for the season with a broken thumb, Caleb Hanie who threw three INTs this weekend in relief of Cutler and Josh McCown who is Josh McCown. In Lovie Smith’s mind, McNabb isn’t even as good as Hanie or McCown.
So don’t look for McNabb in a Bears uniform this season, or any other uniform (for the record the Cowboys have also said they’ll pass on McNabb). Not that McNabb will care much. He still gets his money from the Vikings plus he now has plenty of time for “Clearing the mind and getting the body back where it needs to be.” Whatever the hell that means.
