A backup QB winning a division game and nearly winning a game he had a tremendous part in losing makes the contract a wash. A backup QB versed well enough in the offense to be essentially another coach is simply a bonus.

If you think Tyler Bray or some other turd would be a suitable backup as well as helping Trubisky grasp the vernacular, you're grasping at straws to be as entrenched as possible.

Excellent point. What he offers to Bisky for his development, and his 100% acceptance of that role are not insignificant.

Apparently the Bears are just supposed to hand out vet minimums and rookie deals for ever and ever amen.

After Nick Foles left the Eagles the first time he got contracts of $4m, $1.75m and $1.6m. I don't think giving $5m per year and $7m guaranteed to Daniel wasn't particularly smart from Pace, especially with a new coach and years where we're likely not competing for a ring (though hopefully we're outside, but genuine, contenders next year).

I know everything is supposed to be fine right now but when we have to start choosing between Amos or Callahan or Massive I'm going to be looking back and thinking, gee, maybe we shouldn't have pissed away $25m on Glennon and Daniel...

I think Daniel's greatest impact on this team is "tutoring" Trubisky. Let's not make this more than what it is.

That's fine until Amos is wearing another jersey because Trubisky got another $7m of coaching in addition to Nagy, Helfrich, Ragone...

There's no doubt about Glennon. You'll never get a single argument from me about that. It wasn't a horrible deal to get out of, but it was probably on the surface the worst contract in Bears history.

We can cut him for $3M of dead cap space after this season.

NFL contracts aren't as black and white as you tend to make them. If the Bears want to keep Amos they can, regardless of a contract they gave a QB two years ago.
