The Chicago Bears will move forward with Caleb Hanie as their quarterback despite an ugly showing in Sunday's 10-3 loss to Kansas City.Bears head coach Lovie Smith said Hanie would remain the No. 1 guy despite his zero-touchdown, three-interception performance over the weekend.Reports out of Chicago suggest the team may consider speaking with Donovan McNabb, who is available after being placed on waivers by the Minnesota Vikings last week.Hanie, 26, has thrown for 387 yards with two touchdowns and six interceptions in parts of four games this season.

This particular Chiefs-Bears tussle will not be saved and replayed as an NFL classic.
The winning touchdown was a gift, on a "Hail Mary" pass that should have had no chance and a potential equalizer was waved off because a wide-open receiver didn't bother to line up properly.

Looks like Josh McCown still has some catching up to do: The man who was brought in to be No. 2 quarterback behind Chicago Bears starter Caleb Hanie is inactive for the second straight game Sunday, with rookie Nathan Enderle serving as Hanie's backup.
