Michael Wilbon joined ESPN colleague Stephen A. Smith in relentlessly criticizing the Chicago Bears during the team’s 48-23 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
Wilbon’s target was Jimmy Clausen, the Bears’ backup quarterback who entered the game after Jay Cutler suffered what is being called a hamstring injury.
Cutler can't get find his own receivers…Clausen can't get the ball over linemen…you'd think he was Mugsy Bogues…

As you can see in the photo above, Wilbon’s comparison carries a little bit of weight, but Clausen, standing 6-2, isn’t as undersized of a quarterback as Bogues, standing 5-3, was compared to other NBA guards.
With the severity of Cutler’s injury still unclear, Clausen very well could be the Bears’ starting quarterback for the foreseeable future.
