Pre-Draft Audibles From the Long Snapper

Here's my draft week plan.  I'll have threads up for each of the draft rounds and then I'll go and find all the information I can on each of the players selected by the Chicago Bears.  (Saturday might be a bit trickier as I'll be on the golf course.)  I'm hoping they are all offensive linemen.

MARTZ REJECTS CONTRACT EXTENSION

PFT reported a day or so ago that Mike Martz rejected a one-year contract extension that would have kept him as the offensive coordinator of the Bears throughout the term of Lovie Smith's tenure.  Why did he reject it?  Because it included no pay raise.  (Dave Toub rejected a similar offer.)  These rejections are not substantial but they are telling.  PFT relegates the story to the Bears being "stingy" but that notion feels antiquated in the wake of their signing high-priced free agents like Julius Peppers and making Lovie Smith one of the richest head coaches in the league.  The truth is the Bears still do not have 100% faith in their head coach and see no reason to overpay the staff of a head man they will fire at the first sign of a dismal season.

STEVE SMITH DOES NOT PLAN TO RETURN TO CAROLINA

A very detailed report has Steve Smith cleaning out his locker and luxury suite in Carolina, as he does not expect to return to the team this season.  If you don't think Smith has more in the tank, you're crazy.  His career has has been derailed by that cavalcade of crap quarterbacks they keep lining up under center down there.  If the Bears can get him for a mid-round pick, they should do that immediately.

    Assuming Lobo gets his two guards, can I please, for the love of little baby Jebus, the holiest of all the jebuses, please have a 6'4, manly-looking wide receiver.

    Anyone from VJ, M Floyd, Jacoby Jones, Sam Hurd, T.O., Mike Williams or Mike Sims-Walker.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    praise the lawd! Halleluja!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I think Cutler would leave KC for VJ or Mike Williams. If he saw a 6'5 target on the field for the Bears he would just walk around with a boner all day.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    holy shit... and a little Brandon Marshall too!

  • I second the motion about taking all offensive lineman!

    And thanks for ending that last thread.

  • I'd take me some Stevie Smith for like a 4th rounder. He's being written off around the league, and he strikes me as the type of dude who will be fueled by the skepticism and come out and have a big year. Him and Cutty could be scary good together.

    Here's the list of the worst ever top 10 picks...We landed on their twice...

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    How does SS address the jump ball and stretch the field for us? Not the athlete he was. If we supplemented him on the roster with a tall dude, also in FA ...maybe, but not if he's to be the only addition.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I'm torn with Smith. Yeah, he's not 6'4 and a little slower, but he's a great route runner (which is perfect for Martz), not afraid to go over the middle, (unlike Hester and Knox) and runs well after the catch.

    A fourth rounder sounds about right (esp ours, which is almost a fifth rounder). Worst comes to worse, he can teach Hester and Knox how to be real WRs, but trading for Smith would not prevent me from trying to get a BIG WR.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    For everyone who's still praying that Angelo will see the light and draft an Olineman, not so fast!

    "Angelo concedes that the Bears have needs in at least four positions they can address in the first round, the safe assumption being that their priorities are at offensive line (left tackle or guard), defensive tackle, cornerback and wide receiver.

    "If you can [be open to four positions at No. 29], then that gives you flexibility where you could take the best player," Angelo said. "I know that's a clich

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    He can still go up and get it. Saw him do it a few times last year with a bunch of retards throwing him the ball. He would be our best receiver, and it wouldn't be close.

  • Gotta love this:

    Show up, DON'T work out or rehab, but it still counts as a mandatory session for your bonus. Of $750k. Awesomeness.

    On Steve Smith, I have two words for Jeff: Moose Muhammad
    For those who say Smith was/is in a different class, I respond "not without his wheels he's not". If I wanted scrappy slot guy, we have Scrappy and Scrappy will play for Toub.

    What we need is physical possession wideout in Packers Jennings mold. I'd take James Jones from the Pack before a washed up Smith. I know he's not available, but we need strong and fast, not small and not-so-fast-anymore.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Agree. How fast does a knife wound to the small intestine heal?

    Anyone want to see if we can get anquan from the ravens? They have like 6 #1s.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Boldin is old and TJ is a free agent. Stallworth too.

    I was thinking, hell, if we do get Marshall some how, then I bet we lose him that season because all he needs is one mess up and he is out of the NFL.

    Did you just say boldin is old. Shame on you Erik.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Interestingly, teams could fuck each other over right now and enter into private, binding contracts with players that simply ignore the RFA and FA rules.

    http://content.usatoday.com/communities/thehuddle/post/2011/04/players-puzzled-by-nfls-response-consider-collusion-charge/1

    The Bears could go seek out essentially anyone not under contract, and if that person was a RFA, they could ignore all NFL provisions about renumeration of draft picks and there is nothing that could be done about it in court.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Goodell's entire legacy, his reputation - everything - would be ruined if the owners cave now. They won't. They are looking for a stay of execution against Nelson's ruling, and are judge shopping for a Republican district court to, ironically, argue that their socialistic collusion-based system needs to be put back in place, which is the opposite of what Adam Smith would rule, were he alive and a district court judge.

    Moreover, it would be a broad victory for players and unions everywhere, and Goodell would be regarded by history as the twerp whose ego got kicked in by the judiciary. He will fight to the end to stop that.

    If you EVER needed a reason to understand that the owners DO NOT GIVE A FUCK ABOUT FANS - and moreover, they really don't give a fuck about football as a sport or the legacy of the NFL - today's decision to not end the lockout and forbid coaches from talking to players is all you ever need to know.

    If this victory stands, all those "uppity" players will get even stronger, like in the NBA:

    http://aol.sportingnews.com/nba/story/2011-04-26/ruling-against-nfl-lockout-hailed-as-win-for-nba-players

    The owners suck. The McCaskeys suck for standing in line with the owners.

    If the citizens of Wisconsin actually own the Packers in the collectivist share-based system that they say they do, now would be a good time to rescind any proxy-voting happening and organize protests to "let the players play"

    Let me be clear, as if I wasn't crystal fucking already: If the Owners do not fold, and fold right now - then at LEAST half the 2011 season is not going to get played.

    Stopping by the dbb to tip my hat...

    As someone who ventures solo into the MILF blogs of Chicagonow, often as the only dude there, exchanging pleasantries and what not, and often provoking these very opinionated yet very amply-breasted MILF bloggers that we all know and love (and want to smash), I can say that the dbb presence over at JennyMilk the other day was not unlike General Patton''s Third U.S. Army pushing back the Germans from Bastogne and into the Seigfried Line.

    Mind you, it's not the shapely and attractive MILF bloggers that are the problem, it's their non-attractive cellulite-ridden MILF friends that come to their aid en masse on the comment threads like the SS Panzer Army (keeping with the Bastogne references) the moment some dude mentions their ass is getting as wide as Gary Coleman was tall (may he rest in peace). And then they tag you with the douchebag term for simply saying that their ass would have never gotten that big under your watch/supervision.

    But I digress. I'm here strictly to give thanks and praise.

    And about JennyMilk specifically, she does seem a bit crazy, but those tits ain't crazy.

    OK, for all you draft addicts, or for those who have lives outside football and can't make the time to read every scouting report (shame on you), here's the ultimate cheat-sheet for draft day from ProFootballWeekly.

    http://www.profootballweekly.com/2011/04/27/pfws-top-100-2

    It's an awesome comprehensive ranking of almost all prospects and contains links to each draftees profiles (abridged scouting reports). They explain their ranking process, but long story short, they base it on production, character, and injuries, and is very solid.

    What I'm gonna do is prob print a few pages out and start scratching names out as the draft progresses to know who the Bears will have left to pick from.

    Don't know - seems kinda fun, and you better enjoy it cuz once the draft is over, all you're gonna hear is crickets. I'll prob repost this on draft day, just in case. Enjoy.

    I won't lie. I would be pretty happy with being a prince or king but who cares about them now to do that.

    What power do they have again?

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    It's only ceremonial these days Erik. The days of invading far away locals to laying waste to the indigenous peoples and cultures simply to plunder their natural resources are long over... wait, not really, it's just the king doesn't order them anymore.

    They can (and do) order a ban on fruit loops (or any other cereal stuffs), and can decree what should be in every hand-pie in the UK... but that's just in emergencies situations. Oh, and they set the official dog of England, right now it

    No fucking wonder! Every time I click on my netflixs through PS3 it says I have to keep logging into the account, then it says, "temporarily down for maintenence". I thought that they that it was just routine, but man, now I'm worried. Do hackers have the credit card number I used for the Netflix account? If they do, this smells like a huge class action lawsuit.

    I'm super maximum security with my computers - it'd be pissed if my financial info got leaked from a damn PS3! WTF!

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    oh, not to mention the downloadable games I bought through their "network", for which I used another credit card...

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    ouch. One reason to be happy my man cave isn't up yet. sorry man.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    Netflix shouldn't be a problem; the game you bought? I'm guessing that's going to be a problem. I'm still stunned how stupid Sony has been about this breach.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Yeah, I was hesitant to buy a game through PS3 for this very reason, but I was like, "It's sony. It's a glorified nintendo. What harm can it do?"

    I actually bought a PS2 game "Capcom v Marvel 2" for 15 bucks on PS3 cuz mine isn't backward compatible. Man, who knew?

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I'm hoping that my laziness paid off because I never got around to buying a game via PSN.
    However, this is still uber-retarded by Sony, particularly the part where it took them five days to let us know what the f-ck was going on.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I also cannot believe Sony fucked up this badly with the security.

    This is crazy.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I'm not surprised. I.T. budgets are down on what they used to be. Shitty staff (hired on a pittance) = poor standards = fuckups. GIGO as they say.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Ummm, Sony doesn't hold anyone's CC info in their DB, that is why you have to purchase cash into your sony wallet in order to buy things from the store. That way the CC company can make a one time transaction and not store your info anywhere on Sonys stuff. They had 2 people trying to hack in and they took the whole thing down, while it was down they decided to upgrade and apply a bunch of patches and just leave it down a bit. I don't know what chicken little you are hearing things from but it sounds pretty blown out of proportion.

    "Although we are still investigating the details of this incident, we believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following information that you provided: name, address (city, state, zip), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password and login, and handle/PSN online ID. It is also possible that your profile data, including purchase history and billing address (city, state, zip), and your PlayStation Network/Qriocity password security answers may have been obtained," the email states. "If you have authorized a sub-account for your dependent, the same data with respect to your dependent may have been obtained. While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility. If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, out of an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained"

    That's plenty of info to engineer your way into other accounts. Sony is going to be paying up one way or the other to PSN subscribers. I guarantee you that.

  • In reply to dutsami:

    Did you guys know Chris Harris posts shit on windy city gridiron? I guess I shouldn't be that surprised, athletes really are taking advantage of social networking, for better or worse.

    Sorry if mentioning another blog on here is frowned upon

  • In reply to brocklanders:

    As long as you don't mention ESPN here, you'll be alright. Oh, wait - damn.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    Please god, please god... let's just all stop feeding.

    I was guilty of starting it all on the last thread and I apologize. I always thing reason will prevail, alas, 'tis a lost cause with nary a reward.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Hey Mr. GoodFucell..your an ass-clown..please go to the WWF and run their business into the ground.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Couldn't agree with you more, GP. The owners will appeal hoping that a more conservative appeals court overturns Judge Nelson's ruling, and the irony is Shakespearean.

    Like I said, the longer this draws on in court, the more leverage the players will gain, but the owners are stubborn and proud, and don't want give the NFLPA an inch. Fine. In a week or so, the NFL's appeal will get denied, THEN we'll see their true colors.

    "Pride Cometh before the fall."

    It's almost worth missing out on a couple games to see the look on Jerry Jones' and Goodell's face as they get penetrated by the NFLPA jailhouse style.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    OH, and BTW, I don't think anyone else has mentioned this, but good ole Adam Shefter recognized that the current schedule that is out now actually has been created specifically to accommodate any delay.

    In other words, up to 3 weeks (of regular NFL season) can be missed, and enough wiggle room is embedded into this current schedule to STILL have all 16 games. OK, I know, it's complicated. Just click here lol

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    I think you're gonna get Danny Watkins.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I'd leave Jones on the Packers. He's cost them a least a couple of Bears' games.

  • We have the worst #5 pick and the worst #7 pick. I agree with the Curtis Enis but not sure of the David Terell, he sucked but worst #7 ever? Not sure. I wouldn't waste a pick on Steve Smith, talk about bad chemistry. Give me T.O. at least he doesn't assault his teammates. I might give him a shot as a F.A. but would not use a pick to get him.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    T.O. does something in those locker rooms. I don't know what it is but he does something. It isn't good either.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Carson Palmer is a tool. He had Ocho and T.O. to throw to and still couldn't hit the side of a barn. T.O. isn't a trouble maker these days. Very chilled out dude.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    Terrell was spectacularly bad. A primadonna who would change his jersey at halftime if he was tackled because he didn't like that it was dirty (I'm not making this up) and who only wore new shoes for each game, he insisted he was a deep threat and never was.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Troy Williamson #7 pick in 05 Wide receiver, 500 yards less than Terrel. Mike Mamula 6 terrible years in Philly Andre Ware may be the biggest #7 pick bust of all time. As much as I hated Terrel, he is far from the biggest #7 pick bust.
