OK, I just watched the first half of the Browns game. Defense is flat, ineffective and porous. WTF? Tillman stated that it is because they are just running “our basic calls”. I love Tillman but this is BS. Their execution basically sucks. That is basic coaching. The basic front four is getting pushed all over. The outsides are basically open for the taking. Stopping the run is only a question who can catch any basic back that waltzes in to the secondary. Coverage is going to open up deep because the DB’s have to move up to cover the outside. Ten points in the first quarter against the second string QB? This is going to be a very long season unless by some “suffering Bears fan 3rd Jack and Coke glimmer of a what if” miracle Babich is sandbagging and will gain brilliance in the next seven days, the Bears are going to give up records yards and points. So how are we going to score 35 a game because we are going to need it? Excuse me while I attend to my cold sweats panic attack. Go Cubs.

Typical Bears Organization cutting the best wide out Brandon Rideau and releasing two to draft pick in Dan Bazuin and Michael Okwo who we waited a year to come around instead of drafting a oline in 07's draft. So they finally drafted a Oline who's injured and spoke tru bout the Bears organization and made Angelo look bad. I think Angelo should be Fired!!
No wonder we don't compete against top notch franchise like Indy, Dallas, Pitt and New England.
Way to Phillip Boi!!

Interesting to see the Pats released Chad Jackson 2nd round pick from 2006, kind of like Baz, eh. Mistakes happen...............

The fact that Mike Hass is NOT on this team is a sham and shame. Once again, Lovie being Lovie and playing favorites. Marty Booker? Not only is he slow but will break your heart with the dropsies. Hope Hass gets picked up and shows up Angelo and the Lovie.

I remember another famous quote from Kiper. It went something like this. "Cade McNown is the best QB of this draft and the closest to being ready to start now. The Bears got the steal of this draft." Kiper doesn't know his head from his butt. Caleb might be the real deal someday, but not because Kiper says so.
ROTFLMAO!!! I actually remember Kiper saying that!!

I get the Firefox warnings, too. Wonder if Mr. Zell isn't taking a page from Rupert Murdoch's book? I am getting the same message from the "new" Wall St. Journal site.

Newpapers are dying rapidly (And judging from the Trib lately, good riddance), they need to get the ad revenue from somewhere.

Reading about Lovie & Jerry's Bears usually makes me sick, now it's making my computer sick, too...

I think the Bears should get rid of Grosswoman (Grossman) and Orten and get two more of better quality.

Caleb's got a good head on his shoulders. Not only does he got talent, but he is a smart player as well. He's still young and will soon grow to find a spot on the feild. The bears have a good future with him on there side. Go Bears!
