Angelo, did you know that about Benson going into the draft? And if not, how come you didn't know his make-up?
But, trust me, Cedric Benson will be a bust next year.
And Angelo, i think you're the one that said "no" to Kurt Warner.
Sorry sweet, but you are wrong about Cedric. Angelo will be held accountable for what he did to Cedric and TJ.

looks like we have a side bet ~~:p

but P.L.S., you're right about TJ, casting off him was huge and costly mistake. but in the process we did end up with "40" (actually #22)

okay, hows this one

for those of us who were about 10 years old watching Gale Sayers, doesn't #22 (Forte) remind you just a hair of number FORTY?

but, no one will ever run as smooth as the Kansas Comet.

No. He reminds me of Marcus Allen.

Billy Boy,
Like I've told you, go back to your little pathetic world.
Read it again, what the heck do you thnk "just a hair" means...
it mean not much, or, as you put it not at all.
besides that, i said, "how's this one?"
in other words, I'm just throwing that out there so dumb aragant fans like yourself can get jollies getting angry over it ...
yeah, Mr. Bill, I'm playing with you,
Mr. Memory Clinic.
like i said, i wasn't even going to waste my time responding to you're pathetic crying; but a man has to teach a boy a lesson. Get a life Bill, talk some football, don't whine about others so much.
.

If you're such "a man",... why do you come off as a mere child??

"Just a hair" is a figment of your childish imagination...... You obviously didn't view Sayers with adult eyes.

Sayers did more in his FIRST year than most runners do in their careers.

I hope that Forte reaches the stage where he can be mentioned in the same sentence as Sayers...... But,... not yet!

No ..... You didn't want to respond to me.......... But you're so full of yourself that you have no control over your actions..... Just like a little child.

Now,... Go back to your babbling.

Its funny how people who probably never played football comment on it and think they know the answer. I hear people talk about guys like Garrett Wolfe and other players who havent really had a chance to do much in this offense. As a running back big plays dont come every time you touch the ball. Adrain Peterson(Vikings) has 2 yards here, 4 here, maybe a ) yard gain then bust out for 40 or 60 yards. You cant expect to throw a guy into a game that he has no rhythm in and expect him to produce off of one or two touches. Especially on 3rd down when the D knows it a cheap screen to him. And I do remember last preseason when he was getting some touches throughout the games he made some big plays. Wolfe and te rest of the backs on the bears roster would be way more productive wit a team that has a good blocking scheme that opens up natural gaps in the defense. Instead of an old Bears oline that has 2inch splits that cause the problem from jump.
