Doesn't he have to make the team this preseason to get an offer like that??

I agree that it's Connor's best shot yet to become a starter...the opportunity will be there for the taking if Glennon falters (Glennon will start opening day, if healthy, due to the $14.5 million he's being paid).

Connor's "best shot" window will be open for a few years, though. He is still only 25 (two years younger than Glennon).

By the way, for those who don't know, Brian Hoyer signed with the 49ers, clearing the way for Connor to be the Bears #2.

I just hope Connor makes it through a few seasons without injury and gets a legit shot at showing he is a capable leader that can score. My fear is all the time/snaps he's had to take off the past two years. I'm positive he is working his butt off to get back into form though.

One thing we can all agree on, its not the Browns so they wont draft a QB in the first round. lol I just hate that Alshon left when it could have got interesting.

Interesting...currently Connor is the only QB on the Bears roster. They will have to pick up some more QBs, either draft or other means.

Definitely interesting. They'll obviously be looking to pick up a presumed starter. Nevertheless, I would love to see Connor get a real look in the preseason. He's done well with every opportunity he's been given, so would love to see what he can do with more.

Default Bears GM sees Connor as 3rd team QB

Sounds like Connor is again starting at the bottom. I'm confident he'll thrive there.

The NFL is very frustrating in that most GMs would rather stick with proven mediocre QBs than give a shot to an untested QB who has shown promise.

a GMs ranking of qb in the preseason is never going to be where connor shines. Wait until practices/preseason games start and the players talk. few people get the maximum out of their potential. Mr. Shaw is one of them.

That is true. It's just annoying b/c it seems that yet again Connor will only get the garbage snaps in the preseason, so anything he does will be dismissed as having come against the other teams' scrubs. I just want to see him get a fair, straight-up shot. If he flops, so be it.

He's done nothing but perform well in every opportunity he's been given.

They know that. They also know he's a back-up guy who they can call on when needed. Connor just needs to make the roster and stay healthy. 16 games is a long season.
