It is almost starting to sound like a broken record but Josh McCown once again remained calm, cool and collected in helping lead his team to a victory Sunday afternoon.
Two weeks ago he helped manufacture a win against the Green Bay Packers and last week he came a two-point conversion away from helping lead the Bears back against the Detroit Lions in relief for Jay Cutler.
McCown finished the day going 19-of-31 for 216 yards with one touchdown and a quarterback rating of 92.9.
The Bears went away from the passing game in the second half due to swirling winds and less than favorable throwing conditions but when it mattered the most, McCown came through. On a critical third-and-nine in overtime, McCown hit tight end Martellus Bennett for a 43-yard gain which helped put them in scoring position.
Marc Trestman was happy with the play of McCown, telling The Chicago Tribune, according to Fred Mitchell, "I'm really proud of how our football team rallied around Josh." While McCown obviously lacks some of the tools that Jay Cutler possesses, he has proven that he is more than a capable quarterback that can hold down the fort until Cutler returns and that his teammates believe in him.
