Exodus 20 and 21.
The Bears just proved my point again.
Let me summarize.
They fire Lovie Smith for going 10-6.
Then they hire a Canadian Football League coach.
They get rid of Urlacher after that.
Then when this year's season seems lost, they play a backup quarterback (Josh McCown) who keeps the team in the playoff hunt, only to be benched in favor of JAY CUTLER, who loses the last 2 games!
So, they go 8-8 and miss the playoffs.
After that sad outcome, they sign Jay Cutler to a contract for $22.5 million a year. JAY CUTLER FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!
Then they release Devin Hester.
Then they let McCown get away.
And now they release Julius Peppers, the sacks leader for the Bears the past four years (37.5), including last year on a team that HAD NO DEFENSE to begin with (because they cut loose Lovie and Urlacher!).
I love how the ESPN article cites the reason for letting Peppers go is that his salary was "unsustainable" for the Bears.
UNSUSTAINABLE?!!! That is hilarious. A team that pays JAY CUTLER $22.5 million a year! Priceless.
The Bears have become the Cubs. Or at least the anti-Cardinals. Because they have no clue what they are doing.
I wish I could laugh instead of cry. But I have no idea what I'm going to do the next several years on Sundays, because I predict the Bears are about to become unwatchable. That's saying a lot, because I've suffered through some miserable seasons as a Bears fan and still managed to watch.
We'll check back in this December and see if I was right.
