A writer for the Chicago Tribune penned a column today suggesting that the Bears should contact the Arizona Cardinals and offer Brian Urlacher and two third-round picks for annual All Pro receiver Anquan Boldin.
I try not to sound like an elitist when referring to fans that don’t get it, like members of the “real” media like to do. But at risk of sounding that way, I have to say this column will do nothing but breed a bunch of speculation from people that don’t understand that the scenario will never happen.
You know why this won’t happen? You know why Jerry Angelo won’t even try what the writer is suggesting? Because Rod Graves in Arizona would probably do nothing but laugh for the entire length of time Angelo kept the phone line open.
A nearly spent Urlacher and two third-rounders for one of the top 5 receivers in the game? If you were Rod Graves, would you do that? How do professional journalist’s editors allow them to write fairy tales?
