Q: With Jay Cutler undergoing surgery for his thumb injury, where does this leave the Chicago Bears' QB situation? How creative can they get or is Caleb Hanie the answer for the rest of the season?

A: They're going to have to look for another quarterback, Marcy, but other teams already have. There's not a lot out there. It's too bad this happened after the trade deadline, because right now a player like Kyle Orton would really be in demand. The Bears will have to look at whatever quarterbacks are on the street, including Marc Bulger, Daunte Culpepper and Trent Edwards.

Q: Hey Adam, with this three-game winning streak, do you think Tony Sparano's job is now safe in Miami?
