4. Which player on the Jaguars would you most like to take to put on the Bears?
"That’s a really good question. While there are a lot of players on both sides of the ball that I’d like to plug into the Bears roster, I think I’d chose quarterback Blake Bortles. As the Bears are about to embark on yet another search for their next franchise quarterback, Bortles would be a great selection. I think he’s a player on the rise and hasn’t come close to hitting his ceiling yet. He still needs to make better decisions with the ball (6 INT’s already this season compared to 7 TD’s) and has room to improve, he’d instantly settle the Bears quarterback position."
This is a very interesting choice from Mike given the criticism levied at Bortles over the course of the year so far. Bortles certainly hasn’t taken that next step and appears to have regressed, but I wouldn’t rule out a recovery over the next few weeks. It’s actually somewhat ironic given the similarities of the criticisms between Bortles and Cutler (poor decision making and ball security). Still, I can’t fault Mike for wanting to fix the quarterback position.
