Not with Daniel. He was signed for the express purpose of helping Mitch learn the Nagy offense. Daniel learned it in KC while he was there. For Daniel it has nothing to do with talent, and everything to do with Mitch.

I hope you are right on Daniel - he's worth his 6M in my opinion. He's still a mentor for Mitch and he went 1-1 as the starter. He didn't play a good game against the Giants, but hell, it was still nearly enough to win the game (which is much more than what we can say about our backup QBs in the past). Both games he played in were away games, too.

Plus, you aren't going to get anything much better and/or cheaper than him in FA. There are some intriguing names out there (Fitzpatrick, Bridgewater, or Taylor), but they'll all likely want to be paid as much or better than him. I don't think we're quite ready to draft a QB to be the backup for Mitch. Hopefully by the end of Daniel's contract, Mitch will be ready to be the mentor.

This team is too good to not have a decent backup at QB.

Agreed.

No way a rookie late round pick is better nor can handle the offense if biscuits were to go down.

While daniels has tons of time experience and experience with the offense it's not like he had a lot of game time experience so he was learning a bit as well. I think he is extremely valuable for at least one more season, if not a couple more after that at a cheaper amount.

Since the CBA limits time spent with coaches Daniel is still necessary next season. I also saw that when Daniel is standing on the sidelines during the game he is in constant communication with Nagy giving feedback. He's still the person on that team that knows the offense the best outside of Nagy. Maybe after 2019 the Bears can start thinking about drafting a backup QB.

One thought...if you want to suggest that we keep Kwiatkowski and cut Trevathan, that would be an interesting debate topic to start the off season.


OK, I start that debate by saying Trevathan is more likely to get a short extension than be released.

As far as Kwiatkoski goes I also doubt he'll be released prior to FA or the draft. He's currently our #3 ILB. None of his 2019 salary is guaranteed so if by chance we do find a rookie replacement he can always be released or traded this summer. But since we aren't prioritizing ILBs in FA or the draft odds of that happening aren't that great.

IMHO Kwiatkoski and Iggy will still be our backup ILBs in 2019.

Daniels is here to stay through 2019, after that I can see him being gone.

I think we’re overreacting a bit with our cap...the only starters we don’t have returning as of now is FB, SS, and slot corner...Also, we don’t have a first or 2nd rd pick to pay.

Let’s just assume Callahan and Amos are gone, I’m confident in Bush and McManus.

Let’s use the draft and cap money to deepen this team at WR, Oline, and all areas of the defense.
