Quick Audibles From the Long Snapper

Quick Audibles From the Long Snapper

I'm up in the mountains of Woodstock, NY so today will be an abbreviated post. We will have an uber-meaningless fourth preseason game preview column tomorrow and will post my pile of predictions for the 2012 NFL season on Friday.

Tee Shirts

Production has begun and will be completed by tomorrow afternoon. All shirts will be on the road to you by Friday morning. We will be making a second round of shirts available for sale some time after the start of the season (most likely October).

Adios, Mr. Morrissey

I read Rick Morrissey's inane, worthless diatribe in the Sun-Times this morning out of boredom if nothing else. And I am now fully comfortable with my decision for 2012: I will no longer cite or reflect upon anything written by a Chicago columnist during the 2012 season. I will stick to the folks I respect on the fringe of the Bears coverage: my friends Roy and Adam Oestmann. They are talented individuals with opinions I respect. I can't say the same about Morrissey, Haugh...etc.

That Does Not Go For the Actual Reporters...

...and Potash does not profile work in the Sun-Times on fullback Tyler Clutts - a player it is quite hard not to root for. I think the Bears would be making a possibly devastating mistake if they believe Evan Rodriguez is capable of anchoring the power run game they're trying to implement with Matt Forte and the acquisition of Michael Bush. Clutts is the best blocking back on this current roster. He should make this team.

    I could not believe Morrissey's article. The Bears' pre-season performance has never been an indicator of anything. Many seasons I haven't even recognized the Week 1 Bears. From Game 1 to Game 5 the Bears will change dramatically. From week to week the team will perform differently.

    So what conclusions can you make from pre-season. Only the ones you wanted to make anyhow. Morrisey goes into the the category of Marriotti, Rosenbloom, Haugh as simply trying to write a negative story.

  • In reply to Big Mike:

    I did post the top five rushing, passing, total yardage teams from last pre-season (last or second last thread) and then the end results after regular season. I think NYG and NO might have been the only two who appeared in both lists. NYG were 2nd best rushing team PS but were last in the regular season I think. Arizona were the top O and top passing O PS.

    And then there's the Lions going unbeaten before their suckout season.

  • Hmmm- I hope my shirt gets here before I leave for Mexico next Thursday.
    And Jeff you have to cut those guys some slack, they have to write something about this otherwise meaningless preseason BS.

  • I didn't like the demo on madden but I really love the actual game. It is really realistic and the run game is crazy.

    I really like how dangerous Hester is on this game on special teams and..... Good God it's so nice to have a legit WR on the game that I didn't trade for in franchise mode. Marshall gets open, has hands, and is quick. Hester pissed me off last night and cost me a win when he got wide open and had at least 5 or 8 yards on the guy he beat. Did Cutler throw a bad pass? No. Did the DB catch back up with Hester? No. Devin Hester dropped the most wide open pass I have seen in my life.

    The only two things I didn't like is how I can't be a DE or DT without getting destroyed by the o-line and the strip button seems useless now.. I mean, rookies are looking like future LT's against Peppers.

  • In case you don't know what I am talking about it when describing the run game and whenever you have the ball in your hand..

  • The Chicago Bears should sign Terrel Owens! It would give them another threat and would be good for marketing. Terrel "TO" Owens could make a big city come back for his career with Jay Cutler and the sizzling Chicago Bears offense!

    As far as Crown's offensive comments from yesterday: I think you are probably illiterate. I have never said I have a daughter or that if so, she was raped. I do not. you made that up. It is still very inappropriate and i will not forgive you. Go to NYC and stay there. I have nothing against you personally i just don't think your commentary is very intelligent. You do not seem to know much about sport of football and you are a hand puppet trac.

    Blitz is his sock puppet with a funny voice. Kind of like Mel Gibson in the Beaver.

    And, like Mel, it's just more sad than anything else. The guy needs professional help.

  • Interesting question the Bears are facing right now at the punter position. Heard Zach Zaidman talk about this a couple of weeks ago.

    Podlesh will probably be good to go within a few weeks, but probably not in game 1. So they just need a reliable fill-in for 2-3 games. The obvious choice among FA kickers is Brad Maynard.

    The problem is, NFL vets can claim "severance pay" (forgot the official term) one time in their careers. That severance pay kicks in if they are on a team's roster in week 1, but get cut before week 17. The rule is that if they are released mid-season , they can still collect game checks for the whole season, even if not on the roster. This pay goes against the cap. Maynard has never had the chance to exercise this option.

    If the Bears sign Maynard for 2-3 games and then cut him, at his age he will likely opt to take the severance pay. At vet minimums, that's almost $1 million against the cap. If the Bears get a rookie and just pay him for the 2-3 games, its more like a couple hundred grand. That cap space isn't going to sign Mario Williams, but it will matter in the ability to sign veteran role players (like a punter) this year if we have injuries, or next year (remember that cap space carries over now). Hence, we're not looking at Maynard, and we're auditioning rookies.

    This is the kind of thing that most fans don't understand, but that Emery was very smart to realize. Zaidman says this kind of concern is very typical cap management stuff in the league. Emery loses nothing by signing Maynard a day before we go to Indy; I'm glad to see him trying to find a more economical solution.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    It's the Bears. You know they're gonna go cheap - maybe some Ukrainian soccer player who will work for rubles.

    I'm just interested in that roster spot. We may have to let go of someone we really don't have to just to carry an extra punter?

  • Yeah, that would suck. Hopefully there is some way around that.

  • "me make field goal time! boom boom!"

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Double boom boom!

  • I used to think that as well, but several on the blog have pointed out that that hasn't been true in a few years. The Bears paid top dollar for Peppers and weren't being cheap with Cutler either. This year we gave Briggs decent money and signed Marshall, who does pretty well cash wise. And maybe the most impressive of all in my mind, we have Johnny Knox on the roster (getting paid and spending a lot of money on doctors) when the odds of him playing this year are extremely slim.

    The punter issue isn't really about being cheap as much as it is about being prudent with the cap. I'm sure Redskins fans are just as angry at their owner for spending big bucks on lousy players as Bengals fans are that the bucks aren't spent at all. You want the team to spend money, but to spend it wisely.

    As far as the roster spot, I believe Podlesh will not take up a roster spot if he goes on the PUP list. If we want the option to bring him back any time, he takes a spot. The reason for this rule is basically to minimize team's ability to hog the good backups when players go down for a week or two here and there.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    Can't go on PUP if you've practiced this year.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    Is Quigley injured? He punted the shit out of the ball last time.

    Chris Cooley anyone?

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000055744/article/six-teams-that-could-show-interest-in-chris-cooley?module=HP11_content_stream

  • Anyone who watched Roy's post-game podcast would have been interested in KD's possible attitude problem which may see him cut - possibly to keep a spot on the roster for Clutts. He's a guy who may have to be cut before finding himself and then succeeding elsewhere. Cut KD, sign Cooley, keep Spaeth and Adams. One of them goes down you sign some dude. That's maybe the only way we keep Clutts.

  • Unless KD shows me something in the last preseason game, I'm good cutting him and keeping Clutts. You can be Andre the Giant's size, but if you can't seperate from LBs in the redzone or otherwise you're worthless. Lots of talk with Davis, not enough punch so far. E. Rod may not be able to clear out lanes like we hoped, but I know he can catch and get open. Clutts can do the clearing.

  • Irish I'm pretty shocked you're so willing to shit can KD. You used to always beat the drum for the guy.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    The dude is the Kris Humpries of football...

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Not a bad call, but are you just basing that on the fact both look like mixed Neanderthals?

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    I know, but he's kinda taking up a roster spot now ...

  • Davis is an expensive roster spot this year, but most of that money is already gone on a signing bonus ($1.35 million), the rest of his salary ($700K) is actually less than the cap hit we would incur by cutting him ($1.35 million signing bonus accelerated from next year to this year). So if we cut him now we will lose $650K in cap space - roughly the cost of one veteran. But we free up $3.85 million next year. If we keep him now we save the $650K this year, but pay $1.35 million next year whether or not we cut him. If he plays next year, in addition to the $1.35 million, he will get another $2.5 million ($3.85 million total).

    Odds are Davis will play as well as Adams or Cooley, and the cost to keep him is cheap. And Tice is really high on him, so I think he'll actually play better than that. He might not be an elite TE, but he is a starter.

    Cap wise it does not make sense to cut him this year. He's got too much upside and the savings are minimal. We're better off playing him this year and hoping the investment pans out. If the investment doesn't work out, we lose all of $700K and have the benefit of waiting an extra year to cover the signing bonus. If he plays like a top level TE, we'll be happy to write a check for the rest of the money as well.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    Do you know what Spaeth's numbers are?
    Maybe it's just me, but I haven't been impressed.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    Don't know anything about the severance pay but it was always my understanding that if you were on the active roster at the beginning of the season your contract was guaranteed.

    Waffle..I agree not a big Sanzy fan....they are trying to put the Tom Waddle tag on him or a Largent Tag..not going to happen..I'm afraid this choice puts Clutts on the outside looking in...I would rather put Summers on the practice squad than keep Sanzy.

    my .02

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    Don't be so sure the Sanzy is in. We're still 21 guys too heavy prior to Friday. I agree that Sanzy is the sixth reciever if we keep six, but there are a lot of other positions that might warrant an "extra" spot other than WR.

    To my mind, we still need help at safety and LB. If we can plug a body into either of those spots that plays better special teams than Sanzy, we might go that route rather than adding another offense guy. Or we might opt for Clutts or Spaeth to keep roster spots. Point is, Sanzy is still on the bubble.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    Garauntee the little Bacher makes the squad. He's one of Cutler's best friends on the team. Pretty sure Jay is getting almost everything he wants this year, especially with a new GM.

  • In reply to Crown:

    Well, Sanzen has been given a lot of playing time. He's covered punts, returned them, played the slot...the Bears are pretty much trying to see what he can do, and apparently, it was enough to get rid of Davis.

    I seriously doubt Joe Anderson get's on the team. He's the same size as Bennett (6'1 195) and there's a lot of guys around the league who have that size and made plays in PS.

    I think we put Joe on the practice squad, which would mean.

    Marshall, Hester, Bennett, Alshon, Weems...

    Then MAYBE Sanzen, or some other WR picked up off the wire.

    Also, remember, that waiver priority is based on last year's record, so we'll get dibs relatively early.

    MB, Sep 25th is Yom Kippor, so I doubt I'm going to the game two days beforehand. But I'd be down to say hi if blog folks are getting together.

    Jeff has my email, keep me in the loop.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    ahhhh right NB.

    that would be great. I shall leave it in everyone else's hands.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Hey, I'll be in town that week starting the 22nd to the 28th. Trying to go to the game, but bujjeeeeezuz, the damn ticks are soooo expensive. I was thinking about wasting it at the bar instead...Keep me posted.

  • Ohhhhh, now I know why we got rid of Amobi.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/08/29/amobi-okoyes-knee-causing-problems-for-bucs/

    Given that Collins & Price look solid, gotta give the staff credit here. I guess they just didn't want to throw Amobi under the bus by revealing his inj. Classy move, but completely threw me for a loop.

    Hmmmm....So, will we go with 10 D-linemen this year? You know Lovie likes his Dlinemen nice and fresh.

    (DE) Pepp, Izzy, Shea; (DT) Melton, Toe, Paea
    (DE) Woot, Chauney; (DT) Collins, Price

  • wow, that sucks. I liked him a lot. Good move Emery.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    oh, and... Im'a start that diet up next week though.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Bang! Bang!

  • LM: #Bears have re-signed WR Terriun Crump and waived/injured LB Dom DeCicco.

  • terriun crump? Seriously?

    Johnny will be super stoked about the Dommer!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Get crump, muthafuckas, get crump, get crump.

    BANG BANG!

    Hey, I'll be on tonight - I haven't seen anything from Jeff about tickets. I'm going to annoy him on Twitter and see if he posts something.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    ok, I'll be on as well.

    You aren't going to be in Chitown at the end of sept by chance are you?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Nope - I won't be in Illinois until December unless something oddball happens.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Crump? of all the WRs, we're keeping him? So does this mean Dane is out?

  • Crump is a bigger faster more aggressive Dane.....umm....well everyone is a bigger faster more aggressive version of Dane.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    I'll take 6'2 223 playing specials all day long. Bye Bye Dane. Love your heart....just not on the Chicago Bears.

  • Shame about DeCicco. Word was he came to came ready to play this year.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    Yes indeed NB, too bad it was to play badminton and not NFL football

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    Yeah, i always get pissed when we let a guy go that wouldn't play a down on any other team in the league yet we talked about him backing up HALL OF FAME linebacker Brian Urlacher.

    Put a fucking tackling dummy out there on defense and it will make more plays than the slightly above average college safety that Dom was.

    Head. About. To. Explode.

    btw, Unaga waived! Buh bye.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    here's the just us direct link: http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/transactions/_/name/chi/chicago-bears

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    It's about damn time. He was on our roster for what, three years? Anytime you're a HB moved to play FB, that's no bueno.

    I'm glad I will never again have to say, "Oh yeah, I forgot about Unga."

  • Amen

  • Walter Payton on SNL, before We are Kickers video. One of my favorite SNL skits.

  • So, I was suuupper bored and turned on the Cowboys-Dolphins game.

    Not much to get excited over. Some LBs from the teams might interest the Bears.

    But, watching the Cowboys is a bit surreal, even in PS. They have a 60yd screen, for one. When the teams enter their locker rooms, their "tunnels" look more like players running through the aisles of Dave and Busters. Irvin is announcing the game, sloppily.

    Then at half-time the Owner/GM Jerry Jones is evaluating the first half of the 4rth game of PS, saying things like, "Vintage McGahee, but he needs to get rid of the ball faster." Then, there's the PapaJohns commercial of said owner RAPPING.

    Oh, and they also have mics with little electronic changing ads on them.

    WTF? It's like I entered an Episode of Futurama.

  • hahahahaha... fryyyyyyyy!

  • Lance Dunbar looks good, running the ball, returning it. He'd be a great pickup as third back if he gets cut.

  • yeah, he did look great, but I doubt he's gonna get released. I think the Cowboys had enough with Jones and may even trade him and keep Dunbar.

    Hey, Irish, you got a shit load of WRs in the FF auction league lol

    If you want, I got a starting HB in Donald Brown (Colts). Dude has size and speed, and I have a feeling he's going to be relied upon in that double TE set. Luck will keep the Ds from stacking the box.

    Let me know.

  • and now for something totally different: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=fvwp&v=ScvdFeh1aOw&NR=1

    The best part about that video isn't even the half-naked hotty, it's the dude's Italian accent. Fucking brilliant.

    More douche baggery from Morrissey. Now is he not only a douche, he's captain obvious. Bears defense getting older. No kidding.
