The Bears Den - 2/26/09



In the Den 

A list of free agent options at offensive line for the Bears.

Yes, Rex will leave and many will rejoice, but here is one who thinks he never got the credit he deserved.

Departing QB Rex Grossman would be interested in playing for the Detroit Lions.




Sorry, I fell out of my chair there.

Could the Bears draft family?  Jarius Byrd, the CB from Oregon, is the son of Bears assistant defensive backs coach, Gill Byrd.

Does Team President Ted Phllips really stand behind Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith or is this one of those he says he is behind them, to they will be gone next week kind of deals?

The Bears are closer to going to the cellar than they are ascending to the top.

Missy knows how to save the Bears.  Unfortunately, it isn't going to happen.

Orton wants to prove he deserves to be the starter.

When your defense is so bad that Brian Urlacher is a viable option at FS, you might be a fan of a desperate team. The Den is thoroughly disappointed.

In the Vicinity of the Den 

Though we had hoped it would happen last year and help us with our playoff chances, Kevin and Pat Williams from Minnesota are coming up on their trial date.  If they receive what seems to be the common 4-game suspension it helps next year and depending on schedule we still may see the benefit in a head-to-head game.

This story only really goes here, because it reminds us of the game against Denver where Devin Hester ran two back en route to an OT win.

You asked for it, how does this work for you?


Nowhere Near the Den 

The NFL salary cap has just been bumped up from 123 million to 127 million, so now Jerry Angelo now has an additional 4 million to not spend.

NFL Commish Roger Goodell is taking a voluntary 20 percent pay cut.
