Recently I read that the Chicago Bears’ starting wide receivers at their late March minicamp will be Devin Hester and Rashied Davis.
I am still very appreciative of Rashied for a couple of big catches he made in 2006. The two biggest that come to mind were his touchdown catch at Minnesota, pulling off a huge win, and a big catch in the divisional playoff against Seattle.
Davis continued to play in 2007 and signed a new contract extension in the offseason prior to 2008. Following the departure of Bernard Berrian, the Bears drafted a guy they won’t let on the field in Earl Bennett, then signed non-factors Brandon Lloyd and Marty Booker. The result was Davis starting, and dropping countless well-placed balls in 2008.
I hear that Davis is really a great guy and did some fantastic charity work after signing his extension. That’s great, and I think he’d be a fantastic #5 receiver and special teams player.
But help me finish this sentence:
“If Rashied is a starting receiver for the Chicago Bears on opening day 2009, I will:”
I’d love to hear your creations. I think mine is “I will drink myself into a coma, throw up in a bag and mail it to Jerry Angelo.”
How about you?
