I stand corrected.<quoted text>
I thought a Marine would be smarter than this. Why don't you go hump it up Mount M##### F##### and clear your head. The Bears have been in the bottom 25 in terms of spending. That 9th ranked payrole only counts if all options in those contracts are met. They were not. Like saying the Bears spent the a lot of money in the off season last year. They didn't, divide the money over 4 years which is how the money is spent and then count only guaranteed money and there spending is in the bottom of the league.
As for Harris and his knee, he was supposed to be getting in shape this off season, you can't get in shape if you can only do a light workout 2 days in a row. This was half speed, no pads, no contact and he his knee didn't hold up. That is not an observation by the writer, it is statment by him. Oh and the coach did comment on it. Most NFL athletes stay in shape year round, Harris needed to get in shape, last year he sucked and his knee was a problem, the knee was suppose to be fine, it's not. The only guys that did not participate in this camp were guys with injuries or recovering from injuries. The Bears have stated there is nothing wrong with his knee but sit a 25 year old twice a week during the season, which is more than anyone else, and now sit him during mini camp cause his knee is botherng him still. But there is nothing wrong with it? Sure there isn't.
I wasn't arguing so don't question my intelligence. If you want to make it personal, fine. I was going by the info I get out here which is limited. I also was deployed twice in the last three years so excuse me if I had better things to do than examine guranteed contract numbers.
