Hopefully, we’ll never see him. On the heels of a playoff season in which the Bears racked up thirteen wins, and into the current season in which they’re looking for more of the same, we’re going to drop a cliché: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That said, by acquiring Chris Chandler to man the clipboard, the Bears have a back-up quarterback with Super Bowl experience and an arm just as strong as, if not stronger than, starter Jim Miller. The Bears didn’t change their winning formula much from a year ago, but if Miller happens to go down, Chandler could be the difference between a few wins and a few losses, which in the new NFC North could be all it takes for yet another playoff berth.
