Tampa Bay Hires Lovie Smith As Head Coach

1

Looks like Lovie is coming back to the NFL and will have Rod Marinelli as his defensive coordinator, will a number of Bears free agents join him?

Hester: Majority of Bears Fans Are False Fans

6

"The media, the false fans, you all got what you all wanted," Hester said without making eye contact. "The majority of you all wanted him out. As players, we wanted him in. I guess the fans – the false fans – out-ruled us." Wow, what a cheap shot.

Could good ol' Donovan McNabb have made a difference in getting the Bears into the playoffs when Cutler got injured? I guess we'll never know.

Bears to Get Veteran QB as Backup?

4

John Mullin: "Mike Martz likely would welcome a veteran as his backup quarterback after the bad last week and shaky first game Caleb Hanie had. And if the struggles under center continue (and no Bears quarterback is looking especially good right now, including Jay Cutler), the offensive coordinator might get one." What?

Lovie Smith Not Impressed By Craig Steltz

5

Gene Chamberlain: One big practice by S Craig Steltz that included two INTs didn't impress coach Lovie Smith much. "But that's normally what he does in training camp," Smith said. "He makes plays and for whatever reason he hasn't gotten an opportunity to play a lot in the regular season. But we noticed him. That's what it's about -- not blending in, making a few big plays for people to take notice." LOL- just thought I'd put this out there.

Maurice Jones-Drew Will Not Apologize To Jay Cutler

18

PFT: "I haven’t gotten a chance to, but I wouldn’t apologize because I didn’t do anything wrong, I don’t think," Jones-Drew said. "I didn’t commit a crime. I didn’t kill anyone or rape anyone or anything like that. I mean, I stated my opinion, and it seems like you get more backlash for that than committing a real crime in some sense. I feel like I didn’t do anything wrong, I just said what everybody else was thinking." It's a pity the Bears aren't playing the Jaguars this year in the regular season- I have a feeling Brian Urlacher and Co. will have something to say (and even do) to Mr. Jones-Drew...

Olin Kreutz to Join Competing Team?

38

From Brad Biggs: "Kreutz’s agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports would not reveal the suitor, but said Kreutz will play for a "competing team" if the 34-year-old decides to pick a new home. Kreutz, who played for the Bears for 13 seasons and was named to six Pro Bowls, is past the stage in his career where it’s about the money." Update: Kreutz to visit Saints.

Ravens Angry Over Bears GM Jerry Angelo's Draft Foul Up?

7

From Peter King's story on SI: Chicago, picking 29th, and Baltimore, at 26, finalized a trade that would have had them switch slots, with the Ravens getting the Bears' fourth-round pick in return. Chicago would take Wisconsin tackle Gabe Carimi, and the Ravens, if Colorado cornerback Jimmy Smith was still on the board, would take Smith at 29. With two minutes left in the Ravens' period, the deal was done. Under NFL rules, each team has to report the trade to NFL draft headquarters at Radio City Music Hall. The Ravens called it in. They assumed Chicago called it in, but due to a miscommunication in the Bears draft room, no one from Chicago ever called the league. As the clock ticked down to zero, and Chicago was on the phone with Carimi to tell him he was going to be their pick, Baltimore noticed no one at the league had announced the trade and Chicago's pick of Carimi. Meanwhile, Kansas City, with the 27th pick, rushed its card to the desk at Radio City, taking Pittsburgh wideout Jonathan Baldwin. Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome, on an open line to New York, demanded to know why the trade hadn't gone through. Chicago never called to confirm it, Newsome was told. Baltimore was infuriated. The league didn't allow the trade. The Ravens picked Smith at 27 (not 26; Kansas City was awarded the 26th pick and picked Baldwin, because the Chiefs got the pick in before the Ravens did), and the Bears got lucky, getting Carimi at 29. "Whatever you hear, Baltimore did everything the right way," Angelo told Chicago media. "There were a lot of things happening in the draft room. We were getting a lot of calls, we just ... dropped the ball. I dropped the ball. I can't say anything more than that." All's well that ends well, you say? Not so fast. Angelo called Baltimore owner Steve Bisciotti to apologize, but Bisciotti wanted the fourth-round pick anyway, claiming it was part of the deal they'd agreed to. In fact, I'm told Bisciotti today will push to get the fourth-round pick, or to make the situation right in some way. The league is under no obligation to do so, because the trade was never official. And maybe all's fair in love and draft-night trades, but as far as Baltimore's concerned, I don't think this one's over. I think the Ravens will ask the league to award them some compensation from Chicago before the draft resumes at 6 p.m. Eastern today. Stay tuned.

So it seems the real reason Todd Collins was taken out of the game against the Packers was because he got injured.
