Earlier in the offseason, Bears GM Jerry Angelo proclaimed that something needed to be done about the quarterback position. It was an odd proclamation at the time. I mean, obviously Kyle Orton isn't a good quarterback at this point, but there are several other areas that needed to be fixed before quarterback.
Now, as the Bears mull over their options for a replacement signal-caller, it doesn't appear Orton's going to have much competition. As the Chicago Sun-Times points out, the 2009 draft -- at least by the time the Bears pick -- is pretty unexciting when it comes to quarterbacks. The free agency class contains little more than Byron Leftwich and Chris Simms.
