Bears Quarterback Competition Heating Up with Tarik Cohen and Pat O’Donnell

Chicago Bears Highlights

Don’t look now, but the Chicago Bears have TWO players with perfect 158.3 quarterback ratings entering Week 7.

Punter Pat O’Donnell and running back Tarik Cohen went head-to-head in a series of drills in an attempt to figure out which player has a leg up on being the team’s quarterback of the future.

OK, we would obviously rather have Mitch Trubisky slinging it with a perfect rating. But it’s good to see someone taking full advantage of the opportunity to throw the ball when given the chance.

There hasn’t been much to cheer about at the quarterback position when it comes to the Bears, but at least O’Donnell’s special teams touchdown toss to Benny Cunningham and Cohen’s trick-play deep strike to Zach Miller have made things fun the last few weeks.

The only question that remains unanswered is who, if anyone, join them among the elite throwers of this generation of quarterbacks.
