Caleb Hanie has been the all the buzz on sports radio stations, newspaper articles and on the web as he prepares to take over for the injured Jay Cutler and try and help lead the Bears to their sixth straight victory.
Hanie, who had a strong showing in last year's NFC Championship game after injury to Cutler and ineptitude by Todd Collins, will look to build off that experience and run their offense.
The Bears will most likely rely heavy on the soul of their offense thus far, Matt Forte, which will help alleviate the pressure that Hanie will be up against. Hanie does possess good athleticism and a decent enough arm.
The million dollar question is, will offensive coordinator Mike Martz be willing to adjust his offense to best suit Hanie's abilities? In the past, Martz has been too stubborn to adjust his offense, and after the first few weeks of the season, Martz has started to lean more on his run game.
In the nearly year and half that Jay Cutler was in this offense, it took Martz up until just a few weeks ago to incorporate more rollouts and bootlegs to best compliment Cutler's athleticism and ability to throw on the run.
Will he allow the equally athletic Hanie to do the same? Only time will tell.
