Can Caleb Hanie and Marion Barber Get The Job Done In Chicago?
The Chicago Bears are starting their backup quarterback Caleb Hanie and with all the rumors of Bret Farve, Donovan Mcnabb or Kurt Warner coming to Chicago put to rest, their backup quarterback Hanie along with Marion Barber (as they say in Chicago) need to Bear Down and get the job done. Caleb Hanie has played 4 games in 2011 with 29 completions and 60 attempts. He has thrown for 387 yards in those 4 games. He has a completion rate of 48.3 in those games leaving him with a quarterback rating of 40.8. At times I thought Caleb Hanie looked good. He made throws that connected and drove the Bears down the field. On the other hand, his pocket presence seems to be a little on the shady side. He has been sacked a total of 11 times in his last two starts. Concerning Marion Barber, since Matt Forte is out due to injury also, Barber has appeared in 9 games and rushed 76 times with an average of 3.7 yards totaling 281 yards. Marion still seems to have plenty of life and spunk left in him. He can rush and run over people when the O line allows it to happen. In the upcoming game against Denver the Bears Offensive line also need to step it up. Denver has a pretty good defense. On the other side, Can the defense of the Bears stop the newly found NFL star in Tim Tebow? If anyone is up to the challenge it would be Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs and the swarm to the ball Bears defense. It will be a good game.
