  • I don't know if anyone heard but the reports from Bears workouts were that Urlacher was conditioning wise one of the best looking players out there.

    I think he may be a little pissed off at being called out for his play this past season. ;)

    • It's from David Haugh's front page article on the Tribune website, I'm too lazy to get a link. :D

        Looks like some of our players (particularly Hester and Clark mentioned there) really want the team to go after Plaxico.

        Originally, I was very against it, but from the sounds of things in there, Plax is ready to play and if his trial date is after the 2009 season is done, he would be a great 1 year mercenary for some team.

        1 year, pay him what it takes, and I think he'd be a great fit for us. He really has been a great weapon in both of his previous stops and has done wonders for Ben and Eli, and I think Cutler is twice the QB they are when Plax first starting playing with those guys. I think he really helped build them a bit.

        So I'd be all for the move if, like the article says, his trial date is after the 2009 season.

        • i'm with you BB, pretty much the same sentiments that you have, i also have... Hey, it could be much worse, imo, and if we could pick up plax, it'd be a shot in the arm.

            Was just about to post this. Also in the article

            "Agent Drew Rosenhaus did not return a phone call seeking comment, but he announced last week that three teams have inquired about Burress. They are believed to be the Bears, Jets and Buccaneers."

            I don't know how strong of a statement "They are believed to be" is but if you couple this with Larry Mayer's all out endorsement of getting Plaxico I think Angelo is ready to pounce if the legal issues are resolved.

            Overall I'm not sure how I feel about it. I have bigger problems with his work ethic than his stupidity.

              They are equally big in my mind. However, I would think he would want to erase the bad picture of himself during this. Occurrences such as this USUALLY humble people. Let's hope if we sign him it did and he works to show people he is not an asshole.

              Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

                • I believe it was that Steve Perry guy who said that Angelo's interest in Plaxico was legit.

                  I would definitely like Plax in Chicago.

                    What exactly gives you this impression? I haven't exactly followed Burress' career so I can't say you're wrong, and I know he pretty much didn't practice during their Super Bowl year, but everything that I have heard about him is that he's extremely diligent in terms of how he studies and how he breaks down his opposition. It would be nice if he practiced hard too, but the NFL has more than a few guys who always brought it on game day regardless of what happened leading up to that point (Joey Galloway is another example of a guy who hardly practiced and still was a very productive receiver for a period).

                      He has been fined dozens of times by the Giants and suspended by them last year.
