    Bears QB Jay Cutler admits that executing new coordinator Mike Martz’s complex offense will be a big challenge.
    ***************************
    “The offense is so complicated that I wasn’t sure where to throw the ball and that’s why it was intercepted.”
    “I threw it there but the receiver went the other way and that’s why the DB intercepted it and ran it back for a TD.”
    “I was going to throw it away but Mike is always saying that I should show some initiative and this time it was an intercepted pass that was run back for a TD.”
    “GO AWAY! IT WASN’T MY FAULT!”

    I’m sorry, Evan, they just took me off my meds.

    Of COURSE McFadden is better at practice than in games. At practice he’s playing AGAINST the Raiders…

    I think it’s funny that you posted the story about Tebow in the Jaguars’ slot. You do realize that he was drafted by the Bronco’s, right? I don’t know why you continue to beat the dead horse, or soon to be inactive horse in Tebow’s case.
    I wonder who’s winning the more-meaningless-stories count, Tebow or Favre? There’ve already been WAY TOO MANY stories about him and he’s hasn’t even played a down yet. Is this what we are to expect in the future?
    Favre-like coverage X vuvuzela annoyance = Tebow media coverage.
    Can’t wait to stab myself in the eyes!
