    Ruben is lucky the people he hit only had minor injuries. However even a whip lash lawsuit will take his last $100K…

    What are the Bears going to do without Rueben Brown’s blocking this season?

    He is good guy actually. I’ve been around him a number of times and he doesn’t have that “I am better than you because I play football attitude”.
    Besides, you know he is a good guy if he stayed in WNY. It is an armpit!

    Damn Ruben, you figure he would know better than to drink and drive here in Western, NY. I know people make mistakes, but man Ruben, you picked a bad day to do it. We have an important home game today!

    No excuse here, but you’d be hard pressed to find a better citizen and human being. I have no doubt he WILL earn that respect back.

    The sad thing is, the Bears could probably sign him….TODAY….and he’d STILL be better than a majority of their starting OL!!!!
