Just say no to Favre, McNabb

Bears G.M. Jerry Angelo effectively quashed the silly notion that the team might consider signing Brett Favre as an emergency quarterback for the remainder of the season. This morning, on the team's website, Angelo said: "I'm not even factoring Brett Favre into the equation because he hasn't played or even practiced from the preseason on. We're all assuming he's in great shape and frothing to come back and play football, which we all know is not true. So the Favre thing is just a fantasy." Angelo also explained the decision not to pursue Donovan McNabb. "As I said when we brought in Josh McCown, it was with the understanding that whoever we brought in has to have a familiarity with the offense,” Angelo said. “We have only four games remaining. If that individual has to play, he's got to know as much as he can about the offense. That's really it. I'm not saying that McNabb can't play. He's just not as familiar with our offense, and we don't have the time to be grooming a backup given our situation.”
