Trent Green turns down Bears again

For the second time this offseason, Trent Green said no to his old coach Mike Martz.

The Bears inquired about Green after backup quarterback Caleb Hanie hurt his shoulder in the preseason opener, according to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times.

“His heart says yes, and his emotions say yes. But it’s time to stay right where he is,” said Green’s agent Jim Steiner.  (Good for Green.)

Hanie received good news on Monday when he found out he won’t need surgery on his shoulder, but his injury highlights perhaps the least impressive quarterback depth in the league.

Next after Hanie is rookie Dan LeFevour, who looked awful in his preseason debut, and threw five interceptions in practice on Monday.  Expect a veteran to arrive shortly.
 
UPDATE: Todd Collins could be the pick, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

  1. Superman does not need a backup.
    Bears are merely going through the motions so no one catches on that Cutler is Mr. Indestructible. Leaves Mrs. Favre as Mrs. Glass.
    X marks the spot on that ankle.

  2. this guy has had his bell rung more than a church bell……….but he hasn’t had his sense knocked out of him……… good move Trent, just say NO!

  3. “No worries. Cutler is a beast and will rock the NFC on his way to NFL MVP this year.”
    Wow. Are you living in the immediate, post Cutler trade era of spring 2009? You did watch Bear games last season right? The guy isn’t totally useless but MVP? I don’t think he’s even made a pro bowl before.

  4. “His heart says yes, and his emotions say yes. But it’s time to stay right where he is,”
    Where is he?

  5. His heart says yes, his emotions say yes, but his concussion-scrambled brain says, “I like pie.”

  6. collins ran off a 4 game win streak to get the campbell-free skins to the playoffs.
    his brain isnt moving freely in his skull, unlike trent.

    For the record yes he has made the probowl. He also didn’t break your boys record for picks in a season the same one who also has won 1 or 2 mvp awards .

  8. I will say i dont think he will compete for an mvp award this year but he will have a much better year than last.

  9. Sounds like Dan has been studying old film from last year of Cutler. Dan do yourself a favor when Cutler tries to give you advise, just turn and walk in the opposite direction.

  10. come on martz, just ask the bengals for Just Turn Overs (JT O’Sullivan) Im sure he can be had for a pair of fresh cleats

  11. Too bad the Bears passed on the chance to get Warner a few years back. I know he’s retired – but I think he knows the Martz system. Too bad the bad O-line would leave him no ability to remember he was even in Chicago.

  12. Hey FarvesFooPa?
    That would be you’re an idiot, not your…I guess that makes you the idiot. ROFL.
    LightningLucci,
    I busted a gut on your post, too funny!

  13. “No worries. Cutler is a beast and will rock the NFC on his way to NFL MVP this year.”
    I can’t believe even Bears fans still like Cutler… I’ve heard a lot of different adjectives to describe him, but “mature,” “smart,” or “humble” are not ones that come to mind. Good luck with your 3rd offensive coordinator in 3 years.
    From Rolling Stone Magazine:”Now when the once-cocky Cutler (referenced earlier as a ‘sniveling NFL Super-douche’) walks onto the field, he looks like a man reaching for the doorknob to the motel room he’s just discovered his wife has rented with Dennis Rodman.”

  14. With all honesty, I also think they’ll be lucky to beat the Lions… But then again that is just my opinion…

  15. Hey ‘VikeKings’- how good do you really think the Vikings will be without the diva under center? HAHA!

    =====================================
    Yeah, the same Collins that got his ass kicked as a Bill where he didnt know the plays and where the Seahawks put a foot up his a$% in the playoff games.
    Trent knows enough to stay away from Martz , who will doggedly throw until the QB is pounded into oatmeal – just ask Warner and Bulger.

    On your finger?

  18. Trade a corner to the Ravens, and the Bears can get Troy Smith. He hasn’t been given many chances in the NFL, but he’s got to be better than what they currently have. And the way Cutler is playing… Troy might be an upgrade over him.

  19. Why do Bears fans all seem to live in some kind of dreamworld? Amazing what one SB 25 years ago does to ones psyche.

  20. You doltish clods have no sense of perspective or reality–you get an idea stuck in your head (usually one spoon-fed to you by the mainstream media) and you mindlessly repeat it back like an echolalia-stricken parrot stuck looking at a mirror in a cavern.
    Get an original thought, please. Watch the game of football, then try offering some substantive insight or ananlysis for once, please.
    Diarrhea of the mouth, constipation of the brain–all of ya. I swear.
    True, over the course of last year, Cutler averaged out to about a 77.00 in passer rating.
    But how many of you saw/remembered how he FINISHED the season?
    Week 16: 36-30 win over the Biqueens (remember, the one that cost home field advantage and probably the chance for Queens to go 0-5 all-time in Super Bowls…)
    20 for 35, 273 yds. 4 TDs, 1 int
    Passer rating: 108.4
    And the following week:
    37-23 win at Detroit
    22-36, 276 yards 4 TDs, o int
    Passer rating: 122.o
    That’s pretty damn good. (and the o-line had MUCH to do with it).
    And pre-season this year:
    2 for 2, 47 yards, passer rating 118.8
    What you chuckleheaded taint-chewers don’t get is that Cutler’s had exactly ONE year with the Bears…
    …in a new system
    …new OC (and a lousy one at that)
    …unfamiliar receivers
    …young, inexperienced receivers
    ….a super craptastic o-line
    …an injured or otherwise disadvantaged defense
    …an injured RB.
    Hell, I don’t think Joe flipping Montana would’ve done too well last season under those circumstances.
    So we’ll see what happens THIS year, with a real OC, with an improved o-line (addition by subtraction with Pace, shift of Williams and Omiyale, Tice coaching, etc.), with another year under Johnny Knox’s belt, a healthy Matt Forte and Chester Taylor to help him, a tall-threat type receiver in Aromashodu, etc.
    We’ll see–then you guys will have a chance to eat your words (instead of all those male stripper sphincters you love so much).

    Good luck with your 3rd offensive coordinator in 3 years.
