Yup I haven’t talked about it in a while. That’s because the Bears had a disappointing season. Unfortunately, it seems kind of like they may have another one. Have you ever heard of a sucker? It’s the extra plant part that doesnt produce fruit, but takes nutrition. While retaining such ‘suckers’ as Cedric Benson and Rex Grossman, they’re letting go of strong talent like Rasheid Davis, Mousshin Muhammad, Israel Adonije and Bernard Berrian. Sorry if the spelling is a little off there. Doesn’t make them any less of a fantastic player if I can’t spell their names, and I’m too lazy to look them up. Also being let go is Brian Griese, otherwise known as the quarterback that could.
Just like last year when I fumed over the loss of Thomas “Smarty” Jones, this year I will pound my fists in fury when Grossman and Orton suck it up as quarterbacks, and when the new inexperienced recievers they will draft to take the place of Muhammad and Berrian fumble and lose ground.
Bitter Bears Fan, signing off, grudingly missing football, but not really looking forward to pre-season.
I recall that first feeling of frustration – when I felt that football had become so mercenary.
That was …what…30 years ago?
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
