Bears Silent?

Brad Biggs writes today that in a rare move for NFL teams, the Bears have blocked NBC from conducting interviews with players and staff to use in Sunday Night’s telecast?  The article states such a move has also been pulled by Bill Belichick and the Patriots in the past, but is not usual.

The article goes on to quote Smith, while commenting on Cutler and the offense, saying “I’m going to say it hasn’t worked out; we’re not where we want to be to this point.”  Better get cracking Lovie, before your staff ruins a few more players that will go on to have success elsewhere.

  1. Interesting. Either this is a method of focus or this organization is starting to realize what a mess they have.

  2. I wouldn’t want to hear any of the interviews anyways, they’d all be downer questions like
    “Is this where you expected to be at this point in the season?”
    “How much has losing Brian Urlacher effected this defense?”
    “Is it possible Jay Cutler somehow becomes mentally retarded when inside the Red Zone?”

  3. Doing interviews is part of the job. It is a courtesy thing. They should be flattered that ANYONE wants to talk to them ! Moves like this contribute to the growing anti-Chicago Bear sentiment around the media. It may not be evident to Chicagoans, but it’s clear to those of us who live elsewhere in the country.

    This is in the same category as the Gov. of FL ( I think ) who didn’t clear his schedule when the President came to town!

    Snubbing never serves you….no matter what !

  4. The Bears aren’t talking because they are embarrassed.
    Wouldn’t you be?

    The team has no confidence. When confidence is restored this team will be really good.
