08:05 AM ET 11.24 | Caleb Hanie insists he's up to the task, even if the Bears may have been interested in Kyle Orton. The local media took it easy on [Hanie] in his first news conference as the Bears' starting quarterback -- waiting a whole five minutes before asking if he was concerned about his job. "It won't affect my confidence at all [if the Bears signed Orton]," Hanie said. "I know where I am in this offense. I know what I'm doing in this offense." With an easy smile, a couple of Jay Cutler-related jokes and a comfortable give-and-take with reporters at Halas Hall on Wednesday, Hanie had the confidence of a player who isn't looking over his shoulder.

Hey I'm saying give the guy a break I mean look at the name his mom laid on him.

Doesn't matter if knows what he is doing or not. The next qB on their roster is Josh McCown who last played in the UFL.
Of course, he is familiar with Martz's system from their days together in Detroit. Now that is a thought worth keeping.

Well, they certainly don't have one of Hanie throwing a touchdown pass.

Sure they do. He threw one in the Championship Game last year, which was one more than Cutler. lol

I heard a rumor that Custer's family was so upset that they changed their name to Cutler.
