I’ve said it before; in my opinion Brad Biggs of the Chicago Sun-Times maintains the best Chicago Bears Blog there is. Even in these slow times (May and June), Biggs has something new to write almost every day. I’d like to think that I could come up with coherent Bears thoughts more frequently than I do, but most of the time I’m working my real job, chasing after kids or giving the wife a break.
We will actually have some good updates coming over the next few weeks until training camp, so stay tuned.
So I’ll go with Biggs’ updates on the news of this afternoon.
The Bears have acted fast as they usually do and have signed all but their top three draft picks in 2009. Great work, not that these guys were going to be hard to sign or anything, but good anyway.
Today the Bears also signed DL Isreal Idonije to a two-year extension. This is great-not only has Izzy been a very unsung hero on the line, he’s a fantastic special teamer.
And wow, believe it or not, NFL Analyst KC Joyner has said the following: “Jay Cutler will make Bears fans think fondly of Rex Grossman.” Is he serious? I don’t agree with him, but it is amuzing to read his opinion anyway. He points out that Cutler makes a bad decision on 5% of his throws, and cites the fact that Cutler threw the second-most interceptions in the NFL last year with 18. What he conveniently neglects to mention in his argument is that Cutler also threw for 25 touchdowns and 4,500 yards. Put it in perspective, the Bears have NEVER IN 90 YEARS had a 4,000 yard passer, and they get 20 TD’s out of their quarterback literally once every 30 years or so. I’m going with Cutler, Joyner can have his opinion.
