Hurry Up Offense: Quick hits on Bears news during the week
Marion Barber keeps his silence
As far as I'm concerned, why should he? Barber made two bone-headed plays that directly impacted the game. I understand if a player doesn't like to speak to the media but unless the player has a severe stuttering problem or a diagnosed fear of public speaking, they have to address the media especially after having a direct impact to the outcome of the game.
The Bears are sticking up for Barber
The Bears are sticking up for Barber and his mistakes. Good teams and good players do. Besides, they're going to need him to carry the load until Matt Forte (if he) can return from his injury. Regardless of the team's support of Barber, I won't be surprised if Khalil Bell gets a bulk of the carries moving forward.
Bears still not sold on Tebow
Get over it. The guy beat the Bears. Yeah, he's unconventional but he's a winner. He might not be the most polished quarterback, but he's a football player. Brian Urlacher called Tebow a "good running back". Lance Briggs and Julius Peppers didn't give him any respect when asked about him. Devin Hester isn't sold on him. I don't like the responses from them and I think they should own up to their failings during the game.
Angelo to retire after the season?
Rumors started swirling around Jerry Angelo retiring after this season during the preseason and it resurfaced against this past Sunday. Angelo's contract is through 2013 and his focus is on going all in on winning a championship. Unless it happens this season, expect Angelo to remain the GM until his contract is expires.
