From Breaking Bad to breaking just plain awful.
I want to take this opportunity to say goodbye to Charles Tillman personally. Something tells me the old vet will not be back with the Bears next year, even if he does return form his season-ending injury.
That's the way it goes in the NFL, and it never ends pretty. But Peanut gave us some great, great memories. Interceptions and takeaways, one of the best lockdown corners ever.
When it comes to Chicago, I can't keep track of the tweaks anymore. It's driving me crazy.
Jay Cutler—high ankle sprain, out. Here's the weird part I. DON'T. CARE. It seems to me if we have a decent offensive line (finally) and two (two!) big receiving targets and Marc Trestman calling a decent game, it may not matter who is in there. Rich Gannon, anybody?
I'll take Josh McCown for another year, and I'd pay Jay Cutler for another year, but I'd make it a point to draft my favorite Chicago-area QB, Jimmy Garoppolo. Or "Jimmy Football" as he's known to me.
It's Tony Romo all over again. This guy can join the ranks of Mike Shanahan, Sean Payton and Kevin Duckworth as all-time great Eastern Illinois alumni.
Yes, I know Duckworth played basketball!
So please, Phil Emery, rebuild the defense but save a second- or third-rounder for this guy. Let's bring him home to Chicago where he belongs. He's from Rolling Meadows, home of the … convenience store. There are no meadows there, and nothing is rolling. Just to clarify.
Oh, and to Brandon Marshall, please quit the whining about Detroit. And please, don't insult Detroit about its financial woes. I say that because most studies think Chicago's pension situation is just as bad. We're next!
And you know, the injury situation extends to the Bulls. I see Derrick Rose being held out of practice, and more players coming and going.
Bu here's a team you don't have to worry about: The Blackhawks. They're coming and staying but one thing: They play in the Western Conference, where pretty good means "lost in the crowd."
At least they're healthy.
