08:11 AM ET 10.08 | Understandably, Lovie Smith would prefer not to discuss the topic of a third QB behind Todd Collins and Caleb Hanie. It could be Devin Hester or Matt Forte, who could take direct snaps out of the "wildcat" formation. "We have an emergency plan," Smith said Thursday. "Most of the time, you don't get to that third quarterback in a game. Very, very seldom does it happen. But I'll just say without going into that and giving away too much more about our game plan, we have a guy in mind, maybe a couple of guys in mind, if we get down to No. 3. Hopefully we won't get to No. 3."

Would Hester run the Wildcat?

Hell - they should be lining him up and running the Wildcat anyway. With Cutler in his little fog... why not?

well. for what it's worth, Kerry Collins has usally been more than an adequate qb when called upon...

I wish Kerry Collins was the backup in Chicago...

Lovie asked his staff if the Bears had an emergency plan. "Sure, coach, of course we have an emergency plan."

Too bad it involves evacuating the stadium and turning on the sprinklers.

Hijack the beer deliveries. That would evacuate the stadium. Any volunteers?

isn't Collins hurt too?

October 8, 2010  08:48 AM ET

Hester would at least add some excitement...

He got a stinger last Sunday night. He's expected to be the starter against the Panthers...

Can he run the wishbone? If the defense gets him they will probably treat him like one.

"Most of the time you don't get to the third quarterback in a game".

OK. But what if you do? Doesn't sound like the Bears are doing any, you know, planning.

Being down 3 TDs late in the 3rd quarter gets folks out of their seats and heading for the exits, too. I'm thinking that's what their plan is.
