As bad as our receiving corp is why hasn't Bennett gotten any playing time yet? Im sure he could drop passes just as good as the other guys.

Yeah, and I'd really like to see Mike Hass moved up from the practice squad! I mean, what do we have to lose?

We've had a lot of scrubs this year...what the hell happened to Kevin Jones?

It is hard to be too rough on Davis, because it really is not his fault that the Bears are putting a number three (at best) caliber receiver in the number one role. He is just not good enough for that. However, where Rashied uses the word ‘pressing’, I would use the phrase ‘lack of concentration with some alligator arm like cowering mixed in’. If the Bears want to continue to go on the cheap at the wide receiver position, then Rashied Davis and Marty Booker are going to be your top receivers. And though Hester may have an occasional decent game at WR, he should have been left to do what he has shown he does best.

Could not say it better. He was the all time leader in the SEC on an average team, must have been able to do somethig right.

"Eventually, everybody comes out of it."
Yes, usually after they leave the Bears and go somwhere else to be a productive reciever.

Nobody gives a sh*t. If you cannot earn your pay by holding onto the passes then quit and go to some other team. I dont care if you are Randy Moss on some other team.

Just by reading the subject line of this thread, I sensed that the comments would be brutal.

I wasn't disappointed.

And, I might add, I agree with all of the comments.

Another Bears' "non story" that didn't tell Bear Fans anything that they didn't already know.

So the Bears added yet another receiver to the practice squad? What does that make, about 5 "insurance" players we'll never see get a chance?

The receiving corp is beyond pathetic - I honestly didn't even realize Booker was out for two weeks, just figured he was a non-factor as usual. If I hear "they could activate Branden Rideau as insurance" one more time...this coaching staff isn't smart enough to realize they need to give these other players a chance.

Every team probably has heart-wrenching drops in critical situations, but I usually follow the Bears exclusively and couldn't care less about the other guys, unless of course they're playing us and we're forcing those dropped passes with spit-splattering pops! I really like Grossman and wish him the best, but to hear Orton say he can't harp on drops because of the times he hasn't made the perfect pass is absolutely refreshing and one of the reasons he was chosen as a captain. With the defense playing better now, our team may just have a shot at getting in. The three straight games at home may be just enough to give us a shot.
Also refreshing is Davis' willingness to talk about the drops and focus on eliminating them. 7-6 with three games left is an upgrade over last year's 7-9 finish in my book.
Play with heart and smash with fury!

Failed to mention some of those drops would have been 1st downs.

yo,how ya doing?
my opinion is a leader must challenge his receivers. not forgive. u want a leader to lead & not be mr.forgiving.
bascially a leader must say,
it's do as i say not do as i do.

we need recievers...plain and simple.....we have some good young ones, that are not getting a chance....they will move on and prosper elsewhere, where the coaches have a clue.
