SHARE Poll Results: Who you picked to start for the Bears

Josh McCown looked sharp in the second half against the Redskins and again this week beating the Packers. Meanwhile, starting QB Jay Cutler has been cleared to play in a pivotal game this weekend against NFC North rival Detroit. The starter? Cutler. But some fans have voiced concerns about the choice: let Cutler get some more rest for a playoff run and let hot-handed McCown give it another go. Others, though, defended Cutler: he’s the starter getting paid the big bucks, right?

So we asked you, the readers, who you’d pick to get the start. By a wide margin, the over 1,100 of you that voted in the (unscientific) poll picked McCown.
