So long Mike Brown

Yesterday the Bears announced they were releasing Mike Brown. This is the saddest the Bears have made me since they fired Ditka. I know people are gonna say that he was injury prone. But that doesn't matter. In his 9 seasons Mike Brown has 415 tackles, 5 sacks, 17 interceptions, and 4 tds. But that doesn't matter. What does matter is the leader Mike Brown was on the field. Some poeple say Urlacher is the leader of the D but they are wrong. Even Urlacher said Mike Brown leads the D. It was he who would tell players if they were lined up wrong. It was he who would get after a player is they were being sloppy. It was he that we so often looked to for a big play. Mike Brown played harder than anybody on the field. He should have played on the 85 team thats where he belonged. He left nothing on the field. I will always remember the Arizona Monday Night game. It was Mike Brown that turned things around that game. ANderson forced the fumble and Brown raced it in for the TD. He deserved better than this. This may be Angelo's biggest mistake. And considering Angelo thats a pretty big deal

So long Cedric

As expected the Bears finally cut ties with Cedric Benson. It wasn't because of his lack of production. It wasn't because Matt Forte is so good that we had to let Cedric go. It was because for the second time in two months (five weeks actually) he embarrased the orginization that refused to give up on him. I would have bet you a month ago that there was no way that Cedric would get arrested again. After the way he denied the first arrest I even started to believe that he was innocent (it wouldn't have been the first time police in Texas got a little rough with a black man) and started to feel sorry for him. Of course I would have also bet you on draft day 2005 that Cedric was gonna put up well over 1,500 yards. I had watched the guy at Texas and he was a stud. I argued with my brother leading up to draft day on who the Bears should take with the 4th pick. We liked Braylon Edwards and Mike Williams but the reall argument was over Cadillac Williams and Cedric. It was hands down Cedric. Here was a guy that played Chicago Bears football. He  was a power runner. Combined with Thomas Jones our backfield was going to be unstoppable. I wish I had known then that he hated being hit, that he couldn't share a backfield with someone that had more skill than him, that he was gonna wear a red jersey at practice because his teammates hit him too hard. He has truly shown how stupid he is. The Bears gave him chance after chance and he blew it. He did give us over 1,500 yards though. 1,593 to be exact.
