Chicago Bears: 2009 offseason champs!
First off, this poll question currently running at the Trib is great.
In other words:
Do you think Jay Cutler is a pussy? Yes or no.
I'm actually surprised Urlacher has 41 percent of the vote. It's hard to remember a superstar who has burned more bridges with the fans. (Maybe The Big Hurt?) And - even Rose included - I don't think an incoming athlete has ever generated more hype than Cutler.
Of course, it wouldn't be Bears season without a stupid controversy like this. Is Bobby Wade telling the truth? Probably, but a) who cares, b) the '85 team was noted for the offense and defense loathing each other.
While this whole thing is hilarious, it's a little unfortunate that Jay C*ntler is grabbing all the headlines. It's taking attention away from something more important: on the eve of training camp, the Bears can finally hoist the trophy of 2009 offseason champs! Step aside, Dan Snyder! Virginia McCaskey has the title now, and she's not giving it back any time soon.
She'd make for a great Batman villain.
Cutler is obviously the jewel of the class. I think it might be the boldest move a Chicago GM has made in my lifetime (Kenny Williams included). Hell, you could probably argue it was one of the biggest trades in NFL history.
But there are others, too.
It all adds up to 2009 offseason crown. If the real season is even half as much fun, we're in for a wild ride.
