Bears Could Face Another Rookie QB
Some things this season have just gone the Bears’ way. They’ve been able to stay healthy, and have faced some teams that are dealing with injuries to key positions. You can add the Minnesota Vikings to that list.
“Joe Webb is going to be the starting quarterback Monday night,” Brad Biggs said on the Mully and Hanley Show. “And it’s going to be very difficult for the Vikings to find any success with him playing quarterback.”

Webb, a rookie who played quarterback in college, was drafted by the Vikings as a receiver, but head coach Brad Childress moved Webb back to quarterback before he was fired.
“The Bears have played three games, so far this season, against a rookie quarterback or a third string quarterback: Jimmy Clausen, Tyler Thigpen and Drew Stanton,” Biggs said. ” Those three opponents have combined for 26 points. They’re 10 for 43 on third down and they’ve thrown for an average of 126 yards a game. Joe Webb, is by far, in a deeper hole than any of those guys were.”
With Brett Favre and Tarvaris Jackson injured, Webb will have to pick up offense pretty quickly. While Childress had Webb playing quarterback earlier in the season, once he was fired Webb was moved back to receiver. And it seems now, out of desperation, Webb will be moved once again,
“The poor guy is going to be absolutely over his head,” Biggs said. “They have Patrick Ramsey, who Jay Cutler said [on Thursday] could be ready in one weeks preparation to confidently lead the offense.”
