Not in tip top shape? Tommie's paid how many zillions of dollars and he can't stay in tip top shape? What a joke.

If only the rest of the world had people who could not show up for work and be not in top shape...

That would be a good company to work for, right? AIG or Bears here I come...

Are u serious? already with Tommie's knee...good Lord. This team is soooo soft. I know its only March, but there is a pattern here. Its a good thing we paid Tommie, Vash & Urlacher & Co. so much money,'cause they sure do deserve it, huh?? Bunch of real tough guys.

Camp Lovie. Another rigorous training regimen of days off and resting. We'll be ready to tackle the season ahead. If they have tackling drills.

There still resting Harris, but say his knee ok. It's a none contact mini camp.

By the way I don't know if the secondary is better or if this is a bad sign for Orton. 2 picks to two stiffs.

Tommie Harris' constant injury problems are starting to truly concern me. If he doesn't raise his productivty, he's going to start to look like a bust. When he did play last season he applied NO pressure.

I don't know why I even bother to read these Bears propaganda websites.

I'm paraphrasing here, but "Tommie Harris sat out with a sore knee - It's no cause for alarm because, last year, the team routinely sat him down to rest the knee."

Yeah, and last year Tommie Harris SUCKED! So, in my opinion, this IS cause for alarm. Unless everyone is happy to just repeat last season.

I've been wondering the same thing. The worse part is I actually paid for my season tickets last night. Luckily according to Lovie the Bears are close so it should be a good season.

Am I mistaken it is March? Tip top shape? Until you have regular practices with regular hitting nobody is in what you so often hear "game shape". He was hurt last year, which probably explains why he has taken "offseason" off, to rest, get healthy, again tip top shape in March who cares. Shaun Rogers was dominating last year. He was probably in tip top shape!

"Camp Lovie. Another rigorous training regimen of days off and resting. We'll be ready to tackle the season ahead. If they have tackling drills".
Your right tackling drills in March will reduce injuries and help them tackle 6 mos from now. Stupid. Go All out months before season starts, so when and if playoffs come you are completed wasted. Good thinking.
Boxer:Why isn't Tommy Harris in tip top shape? When I have to go to work I cant go half speed. Work is work I box and i'll kkock his **** out!!!! Tommy how many sacks and tackles do you have in you career? You suck and i'll knock you out!!!!
Really! You'll kkock him out, cause that pertains to the article. How many knockouts do you have in your hobbie? The fact that you have to go on a message board and call someone out speaks volumes on your career. Knock him out, even if you can, still stupid to write it, you think Tommie Harris gives a crap who you or your hold onto a dream little to long weekend warrior career. Just stop writing please, rather then flex your muscles over a keyboard. We are all tough while sitting behind a monitor. Why do boxers have to take so much time to train in between fights? Do you get in the ring the next day after a big fight? Nope you take sometime off, heal, rest, and that is months in between fights. Box a match every weekend, and see how your body holds up. There is a reason time and rest is needed.

Its time to work up Tommie Harris into somekind of trade package for Cutler before he completely falls apart both physcially and mentally. I mean seriously the guy can't handle running around in shorts and t-shirts..give me a freaking break...

Yea I agree with you kinda phillherb...people are hating and if you look at his last 3 years before this past season he has dominated...hes got 25 sacks 5 forced fumbles in 5 seasons and has only not played in 6 games total out of 80 possible in his carrer...compare those 25 sacks with other DTs in the past 5 years in the NFL and its among the best...however i do see other peoples side as well...i mean he really coudlnt do 3 full days in shorts and a T?? He hasnt been doing anything for 4 months.

Haynesworth only has 24 sacks in a 7 year carrer and hes probabaly consider the most dominant in his position right now...tommie has 24.5 in two less seasons....

Harris will be fine. He may struggle from times to times but there's no evidence to say he isn't trying...he plays hurt quite a bit and plays at a solid level. If he can just be healthy through a full season he'd go back to pro-bowl caliber.

As for the lineback directly behind him, that guy has to step up this year. Time to start earning that $18 million extension you got,#54. You disappeared last year.
