I know he was on the panthers roster but who the fug is Brett Basanez? Apparently our QB problem is solved, the Bears just inked this clown.:smilielol5:

He can't possibly be worse than you already have. I'd say it was more of a lateral than an upgrade though.

He's got potential but it's hard to really make any headway when you're mired in the back of the roster and on the PS.

He'll be starting by October, and every other thread on this board will be about how we let him get away.

You're not from Chi are you? Baz has come home he's a Northwestern product. He's better than any QB they've had including Rex. We'll miss him. He learned a lot from backing up Jake and he has a much stronger arm.

As an NU alum I'm very familiar with him.

As a Chicagoland resident and Bear fan I'm familiar with the QB situation.

My take: The Bears like collecting backup and 3rd string QB's, but haven't had a bonafide starter since McMahon.

Big up NU! I'm a Evanston native. Have a couple of Alums in the family. That's why I'll root for the guy. He's got more heart than Orton or Gross, mobility, and a good arm. He may be the diamond in the rough they've been looking for. He comes cheap too.

Brett is a solid backup who might even perform well in a starting role.

You know, like Chicago's other two quarterbacks.

(Only slightly kidding. I was impressed with Orton for the most part this year.)

Wonder if Chicago will make a move for Leftwich?

He does have a way more legitimate shot at playing time there than he would have here.

Glad he went there rather than that new league.

(they were recruiting him a while back)

Even though he would have started in the new league?

I'm probably one of the few that thinks the NFL could use a farm league as much as it could use a rookie salary cap.

Orton actually did fairly well this season, he started out pretty hot then injured the ankle and since then slowly declined towards the end of the season. Record wise he finished fairly strong though (3-1). I'm still not ready to rule out Orton as a good starting QB, he needs another 1/2 to a full season before i'm ready to call him a bust. I started this thread because like EPI said Chicago as a history of picking up other peoples back-ups and trash and never end up with anything legit. I'm not from Chicago nor an Alum of Northwestern so I don't know much about the guy but I figured if he was any good some team would've had him as their starter by now as he's been in the league for 3 years. I do appreciate the insight from you guys that know about him, thanks.
