At This Point, Why Bother?

The preseason has passed the highway exits marked Irrelevant, Joke and Fraud.  In San Diego last night, the Chargers lack of ticket sales led to the game being blacked out in the home market.  The Bears starters – specifically on offense – played half-a-dozen snaps and spent the remaining two hours and forty-five minutes staring...

Audibles From the Long Snapper

So a minicamp is in the book and now comes the long peaceful wait for training camp. Lovie Smith is Swallowing the Happy Pills Direct quote: “I’m excited,” Smith said. “There’s nothing to not like about what we did.

Cedric Benson Still Hasn’t LearnedI don’t care if Cedric Benson believes the... Read more »

More Camp Notes

More Kevin Jones?Vaughn McClure writes about the Bears giving Matt Forte some downtime at practice this weekend.  Smart move and something many of us think is coming ten months too late.  Just because the Double Deuce is capable of thirty touches a game doesn’t mean he should be given thirty touches a game.  Over-running young...
