  • i thought "swimming pool" was going to be called "aquaman"

  • In reply to luftwaffle:

    I was hoping for Aquaman too

  • In reply to luftwaffle:


    Not that there is a lot of respect for the predictions of ESPN writers but I have to agree with this:

    "35. Your Week 1 upset special
    Green Bay is anywhere from a 3 to 3

  • In reply to brandonpurcell:

    I take back the above comment since he predicts the Vikings and Patriots in the SB. Gene W has a love affair with Favre much like many of the other writers at ESPN.

  • In reply to brandonpurcell:

    Did you guys catch the fired Bills OC and his comments about our old buddy coach Dick? Schonert said Jauron wanted him to run a "Pop Warner offense." Boy that sounds a lot like the ole run and shoop doesn't it??

  • In reply to alott96:

    Fired offensive coordinator Turk Schonert talked about the serious philosophical differences he had with Dick Jauron about the Bills offense. "He (Jauron) told me the offense wasn't simple enough for him," Schonert said. "We had too many formations, too many plays. I didn't simplify it to his liking." "He wants a 'Pop Warner' offense," Schonert said, referring to the Bills head coach. "He limited me in formations, and limited me in plays. He's been on my back all offseason."

  • In reply to DecaturStaleys7:

    My favorite sign from the Jauron era was "Shoop is poop." hehehe
    Looks like he was just following orders...

  • In reply to brandonpurcell:

    The most predictible thing about the NFL is that it is UNpredictibale. It's a big giant SURVIVOR pool. What are the healthiest teams left standing after 16 games.

    Per FoxRadio, the Patriots are hot to pickup erstwhile Eagle #2 QB, A.J. Feely, to backup the no-longer-so-well-protected-by-his-offensive-line, Tom Brady. The default back at this moment is an undrafted free agent named Brian Hoyer. And you thought the BEARS back QB situation was tenuous?

  • In reply to brandonpurcell:

    I will be very surprised if Jauron isn't fired before the end of the season. They will be luck if they get a 1-3 start (NE, TB, NO, MIA).

  • im surprised mcbride is here instead of someone like rideau or tuna melton

  • Melton's been put on the IR with an 'ankle' injury. I think it's basically a redshirt year for him - hopefully that means the organization saw some talent in him.


    Melton is on IR

    Peanut off the PUP list.


    Lance Louis over Buenning.

    Michael Gaines over Jason Davis.

    Lots of depth on defense with SIX LBs and ELEVEN DBs.

    Nothing else too surprising, glad to see Hunter make the squad.

  • Yeah, Rhodes. Jeff Garcia also cut. Anyone else?

  • David Tyree

    Brian Brohm


    Zach Thomas

  • In reply to Shady:

    On Brohm: What a joke. There were people on here who wanted to draft this guy. Now if Rodgers goes down, GB is screwed. I hope Anthony Adams pancakes him in week 1 and we see Flynn.

  • In reply to Shady:

    I'm glad HH and Big Toemania made the team. For some reason I'm also glad Steltz made it. If Steltz can learn to defend on passing downs he will be just fine(big if).

  • In reply to Shady:

    As predicted, draft position protected some bodies.

    I second the nominations of Garcia and Rhodes as potential help for the Bears.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Day old bread, both of 'em.

    Jeff Garcia doesn't want to play backup to Jay Cutler in Chicago, he wants to start somewhere. I'd bet he'd rather wait around for a chance to play rather than sign as a second stringer and hold a clipboard.

    Dominic Rhodes isn't good enough anymore to take significant carries away from Matt Forte like Kevin Jones might have. The Bears have a plan to use Garrett Wolfe on 3rd downs and Adrian Peterson can step in for a series if needed and provides more value to the Bears on special teams as well. I don't know why the Bears would cut Wolfe or AP to sign Rhodes.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Boys from the looks of this roster 2009 is going to be a good year. We can always improve at DB and Receiver but damn that is a good looking team.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    I have to believe that this isn't the final product. There are some intriguing prospects out there right now. Pollard got cut from the Chiefs at safety might be worth a look. And I might take a peek at Ruvell Martin the ex-packer. He was a solid player, and has some years left.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    picking up Pollard would be the definition of "irony". you think people give Mike Brown a hard time on the blogs about being injured? You should read the KC blogs about Pollard and his epic struggles with tackling, being consistent, sucking in general...not to mention he is a strong safety.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    KC fans fucking love Mike Brown compared to Pollard

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    I am placing myself firmly in the 'Sign Dominic Rhodes' camp and cut Kevin Jones. He's just sucking money now...his rehab could take 10 months, so that scratches next season too. It's not worth it.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    agreed ghost. we need another back that can come in and give Forte a break like we planned for Jones. GW and AP are not those guys. If Forte goes down we need to be ready.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    by the way I just watched Benson roll off a couple of runs for the Bengals and watched him catch a pass as run for a first down. He looks like a completely different running back, lighter, quicker, faster, better hands...

    He talks all this shit about how we shouldn't have cut him but he must have been 20lbs heavier and completely out of shape when he was with us and high and fuck because he looked like he was playing in a coma for the bears. he actually looks decent now.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Johnny, I also read or saw some inight cincy changed their plays in such a way to suit his style of running better. Much like Mark radley is used towards his strength with kansas city. Just another demonstration of our coaches inability to make adjustments in using the talent they have. Either way i am not convinced that benson won't fizzle soon enough. Many times he showed us just enough to give us a glimmer before he found a way to crush our hopes with lameness in fumbles, injuries or falling down after the wind blew in his general direction.

    I'd pick up Rhodes immediately! Drop Gaines ormput him on the practice squad and call BRIAN GRIESE now!

  • In reply to shonbear:

    I've seen what Griese can and cannot do in a Bears Uniform. I'll Take Lovie Smith before I take him back.

  • In reply to shonbear:

    I think he is still better than Hanie though

  • In reply to shonbear:

    Sorry, I am NOT sold on Wolfe or AP providing the kind of quality relief for Forte previously envisioned with Jones. I think using Forte as much as they did a year ago is BAD idea than can only shorten his career.

    Even Jeff Garcia has to realize NOBODY is going to sign him to start at this point .Signing with a contender beats the snot out of being in street clothes.

    I'm not crying over Cedric Because he looked good in the most artificial of the 4 fake games.

    Why do we need Zach Thomas?

    I believe David Tyree has bid on a bunglalow on DUSTY DVORACEK DRIVE right next to Kevin Jones. The Giants are looking for a wide receiver to step up as badly as the Bears are. Why would we want one that THEY cut?

    BDG, I DO like the subtrefuge suggested by signing Brian Brohm for his Packer knowledge.

    What irony: Booty got booted.

    Had to smile over the nice, big, black-eye the BIG 12 took Saturday, courtesy BYU.

  • In reply to shonbear:

    good points on Benson by Shonbear and Al from Tucson. I think it may be a combo of both items. He looked hungry though and it made me think that the signing bonus just got to the kid when he was with us. God knows if I was in NFL shape, 22 and had 14.5 million dollars i would be taking up residence on Matt Jones blvd. with a 2nd home in Ricky Williams Court. and pounding out groupies like Lance Briggs.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    or maybe i just would have invested wisely and just played to my potential. Who knows?

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Hands . . . of stone

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    "God knows if I was in NFL shape, 22 and had 14.5 million dollars i would be taking up residence on Matt Jones blvd. with a 2nd home in Ricky Williams Court. and pounding out groupies like Lance Briggs." Great quote! You have to wonder what goes through some of these guys heads after they get to a point where they realize that football is not a right and after they get cut they realize that football can be taken away. Up until that point they were given everything because of their talent and once you throw a few million dollars at them they find themselves on easy street just living off of their talent. Benson is a perfect example, he thought the starting position should have been given to him instead of Jones but I think Jones was a much harder worker and better person all around. Benson woke up after the last incident and probably put a lot more work into being a better football player realizing that it may be his last chance. It is just too bad that it takes something like that for them to wake up. This is the #1 reason I love Matt Forte. You can just tell the guy takes nothing for granted and loves to work. On his twitter feed last night he decided to go workout at 11:30 at night because he was bored. Some guys go and workout at 11:30 on a Saturday night and other go to a strip club. I want the workers and that is what we have in Matt Forte. For that I am thankful!

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    All I know is the first two games of this season will be a real good test for us. Also we'll see how well Harris, Peanut and Manning will be able to hold up. Hope to see Jackass get in on some of the pass plays. Still would love to see him and Hester out there at the same time to see how they can cover them.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    What happened to Richmond McGee?

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    He got cut a week ago because we have two of the best special teamers in football. Could make the practice squad...but I doubt it.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    You have to believe that Bill Belicheat and the Pats are going to give Mr. Garcia a call with just Hoyer as Brady's backup. But then, I don't think many thought he would go into last season "only" Matt Cassel as the back-up.

    Speaking of the Patriots, one of the pundits favorites to win the AFC, their offensive line has been LESS than stellar in the fake games and their defense is now without Teddy Buschi, Mike Vrabel, Rodney Harrison and, as of today, Richard Seymour. Just sayin'.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    From Da Site:


  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Have you read Dez's latest blog entry?

    "What the hell is the park distict of Chi cgo doing when it comes to taking care of this field. They have to resod the whole field before we play Pittsburgh, which will lead to loose turf. Basically, to some it up in a sentence, we have one of the worst fields in the NFL and there are no excuses why the Chicago Bears, of all teams, should have to play on such a bad surface."

    Wow. I couldn't agree more.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Seems like I'm finally to hear people speak up about this. The worst was in that playoff game against the Panthers. They were literally playing on frozen dirt.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    There are simply too many events happening on that field, including major soccer events that specifically rip it to shreds. Now, as a soccer lover, I'm glad to see the game in the most premier venue in American sports. But as a Bears fan, they need to dedicate more time to making the field ready for this club. Especially the new high-flying Chicago Bears.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Seeing that he can get cut from a team, regardless of draft position, must of been a real wake up call. In addition to being slow, weak, and brittle while playing for us, I think his general attitude was bad for the locker-room.
