Audibles From the Long Snapper

Next Year Has Arrived One continuing theme has emerged in articles surrounding the Chicago Bears: next year.  The Bears see upside in Gaines Adams…in 2010.  Lance Briggs thinks the team needs to begin moving forward.  Devin Hester knows changes are coming.  This is the definition of depressing for a football fan.  Did anyone comment this...
