A Tuesday Rodeo

| October 6th, 2009

I’m fascinated by the number of post-weekend football columns written around the internet and reports on television with dumb, football-y type names.  Inside the Huddle, Monday Morning Quarterback, The Blitz,The Locker Room, Four Down Territory, Two-Minute Drill…etc.  It’s all very silly.  I was thinking about what I would use for my Tuesday bit and have narrowed down my Bears-related options: The Fullback Dive, Soft Coverage, Fistfight at the Gun Range and Audibles From the Long-Snapper. (I like the last one.)

Here’s three quickies…

Adewale Ogunleye is off to the best start of his career and there’s two reasons why: money and Marinelli.  Wale is a good player but he’s not worth a big-time defensive end contract at this point in his career.  I’d much rather see that money put into the secondary.

Lovie Smith expects a full-side against the Falcons in two weeks and that’s good news.  The league is beginning to sort itself out and the winner of this ballgame takes a big step toward the playoffs.

Vaughn McClure is reporting that the Bears won’t have AP for 2-to-3 weeks.  The Bears won’t go into that Sunday night with two running backs on the roster so expect some kind of move.
