Bears Make Roster Moves

If you’re one of those guys who is interested in the makeup of the practice squad, then this Sean Jensen piece is the article for you.  I wouldn’t read too much into the signing of guard Herman Johnson to the active roster unless you believe Mike Tice is actively (and wisely) looking for reasons to get Chris Williams off the field.  Brad Biggs reports that the Bears lifted Johnson off the Cards practice squad and that he weighs 360 pounds.
Side note: I really like the new layout of the Sun-Times website.  Well done over there.

Lovie Should Return in 2011
From Neil Hayes’ column in the Sun-Times:
One more win may not guarantee the Bears their first postseason berth in four years, but it will all but guarantee that coach Lovie Smith will return next season, according to league sources.

Lovie Smith, and more importantly the the rest of the coaching staff, will almost assuredly return for the 2011 season.  How can anyone argue with the work Marinelli has done on the defensive side and Martz on the offensive side?  You can’t.  So if we have to deal with a couple errant challenges and poorly used timeouts, we’ll deal with it.

Hahahahahahahahaha.  The mustache can’t win in a conference that is sending UConn to a BCS Bowl.
