This is a hilarious Chicago video that was brought to my attention on Facebook by Brandon Baney. Good find.

Marion Barber carried the ball five times for 17 times in this game. Also, he scored his first Bears touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
Here’s his touchdown celebration, that didn’t turn out so pretty.
Take a look.

Chad Ochocinco had so many things to say about the Bears today, here’s what he said on Waddle & Silvy of ESPN 1000:
“I’ve been studying film on ‘Peanut’ since training camp, he’s really, really good, man.
“I know I’ve been playing around on Twitter and going back and forth with the nonsense, it’s the way I play the game, but he looks really good. He’s shut down some top receivers, so it’s going to be a fun, interesting matchup come Sunday.”
Chad Ochocinco had this to say about Lance Briggs:
“That’s a very good friend of mine, you guys pass a message, if he’s thinking about hitting me, I’ll sue.”
Chad Ochocinco talked about what he would do if he gets a touchdown this Sunday:
“I’m thinking about doing the samba this week courtesy of my friend [Brazilian soccer star] Ronaldinho,” Ochocinco said.
Chad Ochocinco talked about Jay Cutler as well, here’s what he said:
“Just having fun man, congrats to Jay, it was well deserved. He’s one of the best in the game, regardless of what other people think. I’ve seen him play, and I see some of things he can do on the field, and trust me it’s deserved.”
This has to be the funniest quote from Chad, he talks about Johnny Knox, take a look:
“Can you please tell Johnny Knox I said hello, I think the world of him and what he’s doing out there. I look forward to meeting him Sunday.”

The October 16, 2006 game between the Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals goes down as one of the best games to ever be played on Monday Night Football. Today marks the three year anniversary of that incredible game. If you didn’t happen to ever see the game, let me recap it for you very quickly, the Bears offense simply stunk with Rex Grossman having one of his worst performances ever, but the Bears defense bailed him out by forcing turnover after turnover and Devin Hester returned a punt for a score during his magical rookie season to overcome a 23-3 deficit. Above is one of the greatest press conferences that I’ve ever seen, if you google it, it’s usually called Dennis Green’s Rant or Dennis Green goes ballistic. I laugh every time I watch this clip, but I do feel sort of bad that he was fired after that season was over. Watch the clip and see if you laugh as much as me.
The Bears, who pulled off a trade to bring in young and talented Jay Cutler don’t have a veteran to back him up.
Will they add 41 year old Jeff George?
The Bears had him in 2004 as a backup. I know it’s five years later, but this guy was a number one pick in 1990, why not give him a shot?
George would add the experience that the Bears need behind Jay Cutler, just in case something happens to the Bears star.
I mean Caleb Hanie and Brett Basanez, who are they? Jeff George is better, even at 41 years old.
George has tried to make comebacks of late and he has spent time throwing balls to the incoming freshman at Illinois.
Profootballtalk.com had this to say about George:
The tape was created roughly three weeks ago, showing George throwing to incoming freshman at Illinois. We’re told that Illinois head coach Ron Zook was blown away by the performance, and he began beating the bushes to get George a second chance. [...]
Meanwhile, we’re hearing that some NFL scouts have responded to the video very favorably.
So, if the Bears don’t sign Jeff George to backup Jay Cutler I will very angry.
WARNING: THIS ARTICLE IS ENTIRELY A JOKE, NO ONE WANTED JEFF GEORGE IN HIS PRIME, WHO WOULD WANT HIM NOW.
Last season Devin Hester made the switch from full time kick returner/punt returner to full time receiver.
Hester saw his numbers go up because he was not only the number one receiver, but he actually knew all of the plays.
Here are his all time career receiving stats:
2007: 20 receptions, 299 yards and two touchdowns
2008: 51 receptions, 665 yards and three touchdowns
Even though Hester saw his numbers go up, he could have had a monster year if he had a quarterback with a better arm than Kyle Orton.
The switch to receiver took away from his return game last season, where he had zero touchdowns on both punts and kick returns. His average at kick returning was similar to 2007, but his punt returning average was split in half compared to 2007.
You won’t see the incredible Devin Hester forcing kickers and punters to kick the ball away from him anymore, but you will see Danieal Manning and Johnny Knox returning kicks this season
You will also watch Hester’s speed and determination help him get into the end zone. The Cutler and Hester combo should be pretty sweet this upcoming season.
I am pretty excited that the Bears finally have a big time quarterback, who can actually get the ball down the field.
Having Devin Hester on the field with a big time quarterback, should give him the chance to take the it the distance every time, he is one dangerous player.
I would warn teams to watch for Hester at all times on offense and lets not forget that he will still be returning punts.
So, I think with a reduced role on special teams and a solid quarterback with a big time arm, he should be nothing but ridiculous this season.
