Camp Audibles From the Long Snapper

No Backup on the Horizon

The Bears have been approaching every backup quarterback within a hundred miles of the United States to join the roster and all have declined.  Why?  Because apparently Jerry and Lovie are refusing to commit a roster spot to Todd Collins or Kerry Collins or Josh McCown, players unwilling to battle Mike Teel for the right to run the mid-week scout team.  If the Bears are serious about bringing in players of a professional caliber, they have to pay them what a professional makes and move Caleb Hanie down on the depth chart to start the 2010 season.  Otherwise, they'll risk entering the campaign with a health and experience concern being one missed blocking assignment away from deciding their occupational fates.

Seriously Minnesota?
Sometimes it seems teams go out of their way to act more like assholes, doesn't it?  The Jets clearly have but at least the Jets are being silly about the whole thing.  News is out that the Vikings have sent Jared Allen, Ryan Longwell and Steve Hutchinson to Mississippi to lure Brett Favre back to the team.  Two things: (1) What does this say to the quarterbacks currently on the roster?  I'll answer: "you stink".  It says that three of your team captains have so little faith in your ability that they'd give up practice time with you to convince the 40 year-old man with a bum ankle (who threw your 2009 season away) to return to the NFL.  (2) Do the Vikings not realize how pathetic this makes them look?  
Wright the Early-Season Focus
Call me crazy but any deep pass plays connected on the Bears makes me worry and injuries at the safety position are the last thing this team can afford to sustain.  That is why it's imperative Major Wright grow a pair, wrap the finger and get on the damn field in the next couple weeks.  I know, I know.  It isn't fair to ask players to act like Lawrence Taylor and play with a broken arm but I'm doing it anyway.  If this kid has the ability the team says he has, it's time put a band-aid on and suit up.  This is football.  Sometimes football players need to be reminded to act like it.

    Tee hee!

  • Kerry Collins would be a nice back-up parachute...

    The Viqueens are in worse shape than we are, with or without Favre.

    The kid completely smashed his finger. Its preseason, He's having surgery, let him heal up. He's a baller. He'll be out there... I'd rather see him catching interceptions in week 2 than batting balls away with a wrapped up hand...

    mmmmbearssss

  • In reply to MatthewIsMyForte:

    The Vikes have Rosenfels. Easily an NFL starter in my book. Ripped the Rams apart at the weekend in the manner of a top QB. Not that I like him, but they have T-Jack - both are vets. We have no one with NFL experience. No one.

  • will recap quickly what I just posted on the last thread:

    1. Bring back farve so we can scoop Rosenpenis, just in time to let The Ghost get what he should have had last year... Farve's forced retirement on a platter

    2. Pathetic. Childress and the Queens truly are the biggest team of douchebags in the NFL. Just fucking shameless and sad. So much so that I

  • I would love for Pringles to wrap it up and get out on the field. I bet you that's what he is thinking too. The problem is the Bears want him to have surgery on it, which doesn't help him in climbing the depth chart or starting. Hopefully the surgery doesn't bury him b/c I like what I saw from him.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Man, I hope that sack of shit suits up again this year!

  • In reply to MatthewIsMyForte:

    Fuck yea! I love it when we go up against that dickhole, we can have "Favre Week" once again!

    1. Why is everybody in the media making such big deal about who our back-up QB is?? Seriously, who gives a flying turd. The great QB's out there don't miss games and can give a shit about their back-up situations. Manning, Rivers, Brees, Rodgers, Romo, Favre, McNabb etc....If Cutler goes down, the season is over anyways, everybody is getting fired, and we can look forward to next year because Todd Collins, Kerry Collins, Josh McCown or whatever washed up CFL player they decide to bring in, isn't getting us to the promise land.

    Cutler is a tank, I said it during the draft when we picked up that ass clown LeFavre waste of a draft pick. Should of drafted an O-lineman or used that pick for trade bait to get a guy to protect the franchise QB.

  • In reply to Joseph:

    Its not about a season ending injury Joseph. If we need a solid backup to come on for 2 or 3 weeks while Cutty heals we would still have a fighting chance. I don't expect this area to be addressed so why bother. It's starting to look like Manu was a mistake. We probably should have used his salary for 2 starting guards, Marc Bulger and ice cream sandwiches for the whole team all summer long.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I hear ya but I just think it's getting a little blown out of proportion. Hanie will be fine by week 1 or 2, and IF Cutler gets banged up, I think Hanie can fart out a win or 2 for us. Probably only looking for a camp body til Hannie heal up.

  • In reply to Joseph:

    Exactly Trac! Joseph, those QB's you've mentioned have servicable backups. By that, I mean if Cuntler goes down with an ankle, head, etc. (surely you can agree that this is a very real possibility considering our o-line) they can come in and run the offense and squeeze out a few W's until the starter gets back. Caleb is not that guy. In my opinion, he's just not.

    A guy like Kerry Collins won't get you to or win you the big one but he can still get you a few wins.

    LOL at Bulger and ice cream sammies!

  • In reply to MatthewIsMyForte:

    Mmmmmmmm... ice cream samiches

  • In reply to MatthewIsMyForte:

    My comments concerning have been based on the assumption that Hanie is seriously hurt. If there is no real concern that he won't be healthy enough to start the season in that role then I can live with him as or backup. In fact, he kinda reminds me of a young Orton. I came across this site that has Hanie listed as the 3rd best back up QB in the league. You be the judge.

    http://www.comcast.net/slideshow/sports-backupqbs/3/

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I agree with you to a certain extent. The thing is, he's ALREADY injured on top of being inexperienced and not very good...imo.

    I would just like to see our backup be someone who has played against NFL players other than 3rd stringers in preseason or the Bears (who don't hit).

    This has just been on my mind for a long time and after what I saw at Qualcom, I felt the urge to vent!

    I'll stop.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    How in the name of all that is holy and good can anyone not on crack say that Caleb Hanie is the 3rd best backup in the league? He hasn't played in the NFL!! How do they know?! I haven't heard such a ball of crap in a long time. Dixon wasn't even in the top ten which negates that list straight away. None of Rodgers backups has had an NFL snap so how that dude is so high up I don't know. Where was Rosenfels?

    Said it before and I'll say it again. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. It's like the two farmers who prayed to God for the rain to end the drought ... maybe I won't go there, but you get the point. We passed on Bulger. Rosenfels. Whoever. Yet we stacked up nobodies like Bassanez, Hanie and now Le Pew.

    Angelo has not prepared his fields for the rain.

    Scratched record - Angelo has not provided us with a good roster. The roster begins and ends with the QB as we all know. The thinking (on a competently run team with a GM who has a brain) is that if something happens to your franchise, you have a guy (preferably as good) who can go on and pick up the slack and move on, with as little negative impact as possible. We don't have that guy. I've been crying out about our backup QBs all off-season. We have been in shit central since we fired Brian Griese. Why no love for the vets? Why the boner for college nobodies with zero experience? Is this a developmental league or the NFL?
    Like I said before, Peppers had better have an absolutely stunning year, because signing him has affected us at every other position in our ability to sign relatively cheap free agents. Terrell Owens or whoever. Is your running game affected by your WRs ability to block? Damn right. Johnny Knox has no lower body strength. Hester doesn't want to even know about blocking never mind having the size to do it. I digress. We can argue about receivers when Shabba is the only one who stands up cometh the hour.

    It always comes back to Angelo. Signed Jay, did sweet FA about the o-line and passed on top receivers. Brandon Marshall comes along tied up in a pretty pink bow - Cutler's target! - and there he goes. Terrell. Nah, don't need him.

    I'd say most of the heat Lovie gets should actually be directed at Angelo. Along with a hail of poison-dipped hollow-tipped bullets.

  • In reply to MatthewIsMyForte:

    The way I see it on this back up qb debate is that we were basically a .500 team last year and may now be only a bit better.

    I'm with Joe here because we have trouble simply winning games WITH our starter in there. If he goes down for 3 games it's safe to kiss those W's g'bye, maybe todd collins woulda won one of them. I think Hanie will be fine if he only has to play a game or two.

    I think this whole debate is pointless until we see more out of our line and tailbacks. If we aren't moving chains on the ground who cares whose under center, put a fork in it cuz it's ovah.

    Point is back up qb is the least of our worries when you consider the other positions that weren't addressed in the offseason(like about 3/5 of our line, some may argue 4/5 of our line).

    But what do I know.

  • In reply to bnjrmyn:

    Right, the guy that has never missed a game in his career(knock on wood)the media is worried about, but when Peanut or Zachary have gone down(like 4-6 games per year each), its like, oh no worries...Trumain McBride or some other scrub 5th stringer gets inserted at CB in the past. While the Packers are breeding CB's like the fucking Lord of the Rings up in Cheese Land. Angelo needs to get his priorities straight.

  • In reply to Joseph:

    Lord of the ring. Angelo needs to get gone Joe. There's no fixig what he has.

  • In reply to bnjrmyn:

    I would... and I do Ben (Argue that it's 4/5ths that is)

  • In reply to MatthewIsMyForte:

    +1
    Collins knows the time of day. hanie doesn't. I'd much rather us make a ballsy play for Dennis Dixon though, offer the Steelers Greg Oslen plus a draft pick. Then we could go to war no matter what the hell happens to Cutler. That's the way a team should be. Do we use Joe Montana or Steve Young ... ?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Tyler Thigpen. #3 in Miami. I cleaned up with him in Fantasy Football for a few weeks as a waiver pickup. Dude has skills. But Dennis Dixon is like an accurate Michael Vick. Definite baller.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    How is Brandon Manumaleuna starting to look like a mistake? He's been banged up but Im pretty sure the reason the Bears brought him in was because he knows MIke Martz's system and he knows how to block. The Bears probably plan on using him like a third RT.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    As #16 is wont to say:

    "it rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets the hose again"

    God DAMN. All these articles say the same thing, Josh McNown and his ilk want no part of Lovie's circus. Why? because they will only keep 2 QBs on roster, and they aren't assured roster spots. So they don't get PAID, motherfucker.

    So that begs the inevitable question: WHY THE FUCK DID WE DRAFT LE PEW??????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm sorry, my nickname of La Favor is just better. Because the only logic behind picking that kid up with a draft choice was some favor to the guy or his family. Maybe his dad mows Ginny's lawn (that's a metaphor if you want to be) or something. Because the 6th round isn't a god damn THROWAWAY pick, you FUCKTARD Angelo.

    Clue phone for you, dingleberry Jerry - Terrell Davis of the Broncos was 6th round. I can name others. You are telling me there was FUCKING NOBODY to choose on defense in secondary? Not a SINGLE FUCKING offensive lineman to be had? I challenge that. I'm gonna go look who made the final roster on O-line from the 6th round.

    Holy fuck this team is run by retards. Starting with allowing 0-16 tell us "yeah, let's give away a 3rd round for a guy who is clearly a bust." Tampa was laughing all te way to the bank until the guy croaked and it became unfunny.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Why cut our actual QBs? If you want a 6'2 Black guy who can't throw the ball very well but has running skills, why not just direct snap it to Forte and have the Cheetah play RB?

    We are so worried about Cutler getting hurt... but he has never had a season above 500, he has never been to the playoffs, he hasn't been to more pro bowls than David Garrard.. he needs to prove that he can actually win more games for us than he throws away per season.

    I also don't know why all the hate for Danny Boy; I thought LeFevour looked pretty decent considering he has had no reps, he hit 2 receivers right in the hands and they dropped them both on 3rd down, once while running and directing Iglesias all the while. Sure he had some go high on him; first NFL action with essentially no practice, not bad in my book.

    It goes to the heart of how the org is run. Like Jerry Vanisi and Da Coach have said, as well as McMahon - this management team has no fucking clue how to build a winning team. They could throw darts at the board and it would appear more strategic than this.

    We picked this kid up, and what? In our WIN NOW year? It was STUPID. Go with 2 QBs. If Hannie gets hurt like he did, fine - stick him on IR or practice squad and go sign a Josh McNown. Use your PICKS to build the blocks you need for depth where you are weak.

    Vanisi and Ditka would not have dipped into free agency for a DE and a RB. I am SURE of that. They would be building a team that could run and control the offensive line. It's PATHETIC to see a Bears team on offense who can't even hold the pocket for a fucking three seconds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry but the Chargers-Bears game was on replay on NFL network last night, so I added it to TiVo. It was painful to watch. I slow-mo'ed some stuff.

    Kellen Davis was fucking steamrolling people out there. Louis and Kreutz and Garza were getting rolled like hobos in the alley.

    +200

  • In reply to gpldan:

    agree w/ some of this...here's what's debatable:

    1) had to get a DE b/c the Cover 2 is predicated on it. no pass rush = 2009 Chicago Bears defense
    2) need to have 2 RBs in this NFL. by getting CT, we weaken a conference rival
    3) yea...didn't like the LeFevour pick (hell i was saying all along to draft MItch Petrus), but then again...haven't heard his name out the Giants camp either.
    4) Kreutz is getting over a surgery & Louis is a rookie, so it's going to take time

    now trust....I AM NOT SIDING W/ LOVIE AND JERRY ANGELO'S PISSPOOR WAY OF ORGANIZING A FOOTBALL TEAM IN THE PAST...but for this year, stuff is going to take some time to gel. and by "take some time," i mean the preseason. and who knows...maybe this all works and we can go into the '11 draft and build upon success. if not? new regime comes in and gets to work

    ....and after looking at some of the players coming out this next draft? it's LOADED!!!! and if the next coach wants to scrap the D. Hester experiment (not a proponent of scrapping it, but business is business), A.J. Green from Georgia is going to be an NFL fucking STUD!!!!! so it works out either way (unless there's a ridiculous lineman coming out).

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    No slack '85! There's already enough slack in this group to hang all the scum in Guantanamo bay man.

    Jerry is a complete and total fucktard. He will get as much play as Brett banez (or whatever the fuck his name was)

    '85... what's the deal with the double spaces between paragraphs? I've been meaning to ask.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    For some reason it does that now. It use to just single space then one of them double spaces or all of them.

    I just don't want the kid to commit suicide because he could be good if he got the right training.

    I agree, we didn't need the guy in the first place.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    hell yea Olin! fuck Haugh (all dude talks about is negative shit in EVERYTHING chicago sports). he's Mariotti's replacement....fuckin' prick

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    I beg to differ.

    A) No way is David Haugh the second coming of the odious Jay mariotti.

    B) "F..." Mr. Kruetz who is running his "All-pro" mouth, once again. That "confrontation" was absolutely LAME. How 'bout he calls out (and maybe BLOCKS)a few defensive tackles or linebackers instead of a reporter who simply pointed out the obvious? The Bears get STONE-WALLED on virtually every short yardage run up the middle of late because Olin has been living on his rep for AT LEAST 3 seasons. The only thing you can count on #57 for lately is getting stuffed. That, and the all too frequent stupid personal foul.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    A) proof, b/c although i didn't read mariotti's columns, ATH is all i need to know about him

    B) last year he played hurt. the 2 seasons, i'll give you, but how many players do you know that have played EVERY SINGLE SEASON, EVERY SINGLE GAME on a perfect level? now this year? boom or bust for Olin, but fans (and i'm not excluded) forget that players are also humans, and humans aren't perfect.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    I don't recall asking for Olin Kruetz to be "perfect" though he can't even SEE perfect
    from where his level of play's been the last 3 seasons.

    If the Sun-Times hired LUCIFER as a writer, it would STILL be a toss-up between him and Mariotti for which one is worse. A POX on the 4-Letter for continuing to foist his arrogance upon us.

    It was a real pleasure when
    A)The Sun-Times called Mariotti's bluff when he staged his latest "I quit" tantrum

    and

    B)When his co-worker and peer, Roger Ebert, absolutely EXCORIATED his sorry butt in print upon his exit.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    2. Olin better put up or shut up this season

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Haugh has a long long way to go to out Douche Mariotti. By the end, Jay pissed everyone in Chicago off. I remember reading him during the Bulls reign. He HATED Scottie Pippen, always always called him out, called him weak, just on a fucking mission article after article to run him outta town.

    Pippen to his credit, just got made in the HOF. Mariotti is slinging prose for $40k/yr in some shithole paper. He can join Bernie Lincicome in the bar of losers and share a Schlitz.

  • In reply to gpldan:

  • In reply to gpldan:

    You'll LOVE this, GP.

    Your reference piqued my interest so I googled good old "Bernie The Bear-hater" and discovered the following:

    After he fled Chicago he landed at the Rocky Mountain News.
    So, naturally, this long-established, respected newspaper FOLDED in fairly short order.

    Coincidence? I don't THINK so.

    So then Bernie started his own blog.

    But then, he gave it up because
    "...it was like I was snoring in an empty room. Even I couldn't hear the noise."

    Well YEAH, Bernie, that happens when nobody gives crap about YOUR blog.
    Feel free to give the Blogfather a call if you want to know how it feels to run good one. Check that. A DAMN good one!

    Anyway, Lincicome is back in Chicago and has approached both the Sun-Times and the Trib about employment. So far. THAT has been as "successful" as his blog.

    The article, linked below, ends with THIS quote:

    "I'm tired of being irrelevant".

    1. You can't claim the name "Monsters of the Midway", unless you have more than 1 monster.
    2. That Defense retired the 1st and 2nd string quarterbacks, forcing the Raiders to bring in their practice squad QB. When was the last time our D did that?
    3. I can't even imagine anyone on that defense sporting a Mohawk. Inconceivable.

  • In reply to dutsami:

    hmmmm.....pretty hypocritical post.

    you want for LeFevour to get more slack, but Cutler can't even tho he endured a myriad of bullshit? (no O-line, new playbook, no running game due to O-line, defensive injuries, green WRs at 6'0, and the list goes on). now i'm not quick for excuses, but you have to call shit like it is....if you want to criticize Cutler, go right ahead, but consider the extenuating circumstances along with it.

    also, Cutler has proven he can win games. in his career, he's had 7 fourth-quarter comebacks & 11 game-winning drives. http://www.pro-football-reference.com/play-index/comeback.cgi?player=CutlJa00

    V. Young - same as Cutler (say what you want, that man can win football games)
    M. Leinart - 2 4QC's, 2 GWD's
    T. Jackson - 3 4QC's, 2 GWD's

    3 and 1/2 weeks to go until the real jockstraps go on gents. I hope to see a defensive unit that will be able to take away the bread and butter plays from our opponents. Preseason games are a necessary evil and I can't wait until the league shaves them down to just 2 and adds 2 more onto the regular season. Given the new offense and the fact that our gormless front office still has no clue who will be in the starting lineup yet, your guess is as good as mine as to how our team will fare this year. I only hope that all the positions are settled by week 2 or 3 as it seems even if our starters are announced before the Detroit game, it may take a while to replace the non-hackers. My guess is that Marinara will be fired before the end of the season. This of course was the reason he was given the job and the reason he didn't want it. Make no mistake gents, this year is either going to be Mt.Motherfucker(as we used to say in the Marines), or its going to be a ring dang doo, all shiny and black kinda year but in order for there to be any success, these guys will actually have to pull their peckers out of Susie Rottencrotch's hole and start playing Bear football once again. One of the reasons I'm starting to have bad vibes recently is because of this mohawk crap I read about last week. Mohawks? Really?. Something's just not right about that. Maybe I'm too old school.

    I loved Neal. He was Steve Young in Joe's shadow. We've been blessed with great running backs. We must lead in the league in having excellent running backs down through the years.... have we ever had a bad patch with running backs? Even our backups were better than a lot of starters - Anderson, Sanders, and eh ... Cedric.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Here's how they're messing with Shabba - they're doing what they did to Earl Bennett, making him learn all three positions, he does everything asked of him, outperforms his competition and then he gets a quarter of the snaps ....

    From the trib :

    It was pointed out that when Jay Cutler was with the starters on the first drive Saturday at San Diego, Aromashodu was in for only two of the eight snaps, when the Bears went with three-receiver personnel.

    "That's because (Cutler) played only eight plays," Drake said. "Golly. That is what I consider him, a starter."

    Aromashodu finished 2009 as Cutler's preferred target, catching 22 passes for 282 yards and four touchdowns in the final four games. Knox has been most targeted in training camp, but Aromashodu is still the player that offers a different dimension at 6-foot-2, 201 pounds. Cutler seems to like the big target.

    With a sore groin sidelining Hester a week ago and Knox recently out with a sore hamstring, Aromashodu has gotten more practice time and he's in the difficult spot of having to learn three positions: the X, Z and F. Primarily, he has been drilled at the F, which is the third receiver. Depending on the play, he can line up inside or outside.

    "He has progressed every week and we're making it hard on him," offensive coordinator Mike Martz said. "He's not had the mental errors I thought he might have."

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Do they want him to fuck up or do we need him to know all the receiver positions so when Jay can't find anyone else Aromashodu is open?

    I thought Alfalfa sucked. He couldn't carry Pringles jock (that would be a big job). The INT that he had thrown right to him, he fell down on his ass instead of running it back. He looks lethargic out there. His coverage in the corner on the pass interfere was bad technique. His back was to the ball, he can't turn and adjust to the ball in the air in real time. It's like his mind is too slow.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Was me GP.

    I agree he was dogshit in the chargers game, but we all know that for whatever reason (after a pretty damn strong rookie season starting 13 games) lovie and co. stopped the love for him. Not sure why he fell out of favor but the dude hardly got any reps in any of the oseason camps. That rustiness is what you saw last saturday I believe.

    That much time off will do it to you man, especially if you weren't allowed to get any game-time looks against the first team... never mind totally just stand around on the sideline the whole time. I believe in the kid's physical abilities, his attitude, and his nose for the ball. I will stand by him till the preseason is over and he'd still sucking. Get him reps, let him shake the rust off, and then we'll see if he's good enough to play.

    ...we may not have a choice anyway by the time the season rolls around... shit, he may be playing QB for us by then.

    Anything possible. Hanie looks like 2 now. Fever longshot. RT @FQD1911 @BradBiggs Gutierrez have real shot of sticking or battle Fever?"

    "ZachZaidman
    Thanks. Glad you enjoyed it. RT @FQD1911: @ZachZaidman listened to the debate you and Buffone had. funniest thing of the day."

    "skjensen
    Hanie with his right arm in a sling may demand that RT @FQD1911: is it time to compile a short list of vet QBs still on the market?"

    those are the ones worth mentioning (also, Mike Wright and Sean Jensen had a friendly little battle where he said "since when is sean knowledgeable about football," but figured it wasn't important to the board). all the Bears writers (well the ones i posted on here) are cool as hell. the others? fuck them.

    Nice. Thanks FQ.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    And please let us know if Jerry Angelo ever makes the mistake of opening a Twitter account, FQ. Then, and only then, will I open one myself for a one night only appearance. The most densely concentrated stream of bile and vitriol ever squeezed into 140 characters I assure you.

    At least he didn't pull his quads. I pulled both mine playing softball several years ago. I didn't go through any NFL rehab programs but it took over two years to heal. Getting old sucks.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    that is what DA had last year that kept him out of the first part of the season.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Pulled both quads Trac ? I didn't know that was humanly possible ...

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Well Irish, I've done certain positions with members of the fairer sex in which I could certainly have done so. But any more on that is TMI

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'm pretty sure he's returning to practice this week and should provide immediate support on the line.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Ayuh.

  • In reply to Shady:

    The way it's going, maybe they should make him the RT.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I rather see what Caleb Hanie has to offer, rather than sign some flunky. FARVE IS A BITCH!

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    No he isn't. The Vikings are because all they do is suck his dick.

    Has that ever happened in the history of NFL. Three starting players leave practice to convice their qb to keep playing.

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    Easy tiger, better eat some red meat but make sure its not your arm.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I'd swap Manu for Terrell Owens. Especially with his knee the way it is.

  • In reply to Joseph:

    I guess the point of having a solid backup is to avoid the "If Cutler goes down the season is over...." - if that's ever the case then it's all on the GM's head. The season is not supposed to be over because you lose a player. One player. The backup should be a guy who's bursting for his chance.

    +1 on Le Pew. Shoulda been Eric Olsen.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Teddy Bruschi just said he has lost any respect for the VIKINGS... damnnnnnnn lmao!!!!!! lol he was you have have to beg?! Hell no.

    Go to the 1:00 mark of Clayton's report: "They're probably on their knees!"

    BAAAAHAHAHAHAHAhahahaha.

  • Well.....at least there's room for improvement. It could be worse, we could have Ryan Fitzpatrick.
