Remember When I said I wanted Plaxico Burress on the Bears? Scratch that

This might be the one time I’ll admit that I was wrong and that Jerry Angelo made the right move.  Not signing Plaxico Burress might be the smartest move the Bears made this offseason.  The Bears can’t afford to have ANOTHER moron wide receiver, and Plaxico Burress might be as dumb as they come. 

Favorite Quotes from HBO’s Real Time Sports with Bryan Gumbel:

    • “I sat down with Ben and he was like, ‘We got a problem,’” Burress recalled. “I said, ‘What you talking about?’ He said Mayor Bloomberg just went on TV and said you should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
      “And you know what I said after that?” Burress recalled. “I said, ‘Who is Mayor Bloomberg?’ Dead serious. ‘Who is Mayor Bloomberg?’”
    • “I had a drink in my left hand,” Burress, 34, said. “I’m just walking up the stairs. And, you know, it was dark. And I kind of, you know, missed a step. That’s when I felt my gun … started to slide. I went to grab it … to stop it from falling. POW!”
      At first, Burress didn’t realize he had put a bullet in his right thigh.
      “I saw the fire, like, come through my jeans,” Burress said. “I took a couple more steps and my jeans were like, my jeans are wet. And I looked down. I had some Chuck Taylors on and they were – the white was all red”.
    • I don’t take no s— from nobody,” Burress said. “You got to earn my respect as a person. You got love for me. I got love for you.

So yeah, the Bears signed Roy Williams, a guy dumb enough to mail an engagement ring with a video-taped proposal to an ex-girlfriend, but at least he didn’t shoot himself in the leg without realizing and then told the world that he didn’t know who Mayor Bloomberg was.

PS: I know Plaxico Burress was once a superstar WR, but he really out kicked his coverage with his wife.  She is attractive, intelligent, and a practicing lawyer in NYC and he is a lazy, abusive(two domestic violence reports against wife), and stupid.  It just doesn’t add up to me.

Who needs Plaxico Burress, Randy Moss or Santonio Holmes when Brd. Smith is Available?

July 26, 2011 1 comment

Day one of NFL free agency and Jerry Angelo is already disappointing me.  Rumors are swirling that the Bears will add to their receiving core like everyone has been begging for.  The Bears have a TON of cap space.  Some of the most in the league.  They  could easily target a game breaking wide receiver like Plaxico Burress, Randy Moss, Santana Moss, or Santonio Holmes.  So who are they going after…Brad Smith.  Are the Bears really in need of a former option quarterback who played a lot of wildcat for the Jets? Brad Smith had 4 catches last year.  What would be the point of signing him?!?! UGH ANGELO MAKES ME SO MAD.  It only took a day for me to want him fired again.


PS: Of all the guys listed above Santonio Holmes seems like he would be a perfect fit for the Martz offense.

Super Bears…Superbowl: I want TWO Bad-Ass Receivers

July 14, 2011 Leave a comment

Arm chair GM super fans are probably going to kill me for this, but I don’t care.  I want Plaxico Burress AND Randy Moss.  Randy Moss’s agent said in an interview with “He is determined, motivated and quite frankly has a huge chip on his shoulder. Whatever team ends up getting Randy, they’re going to know they’re getting the old Randy Moss. He’s not just coming in to be on the team, he’s going to be Randy Moss — a difference maker.” His agent also described Moss as being in “freakish shape” from working out like a mad man.  Yeah Moss is a total headcase, yeah last season was an absolute disaster, yeah he is 34 years old, but Randy Moss is still the most talented Wide Receiver in the history of the NFL.  Tom Brady and Bill Belichick both called Randy Moss the most intelligent guy they had ever worked with.  That’s good enough for me.  Give Cutler Burress and Moss and tell the NFC to get the fuck out of the way.  STRAIGHT CASH HOMIE



Plaxico Burress is Free, is he on the Bears yet?

Plaxico Burress is out of jail and I want him on the Bears immediately, or as soon as this lock out is over(which I also want immediately).  Burress is has been out of football for a couple of years.  Some people might say that he’s rusty, I say that he’s rested.  His gunshot wounds shouldn’t really effect his speed as it was just a flesh wound.  I am sure he is jacked from doing push-ups, sit-ups, and pull-ups in his jail cell like all the criminals do on TV.  Burress should come back to the league prison strong and prison motivated. 

All joking aside the Bears need to make a play for Burress.  The front office has repeatedly failed to address the wide receiver position and Burress fits the mold of a big possession target for Jay Cutler.  So he’s had a long track record of legal trouble, so he’s been labeled by some as “lazy”, so he is stupid enough to shoot himself in the leg…he’d still instantly be the most talented and most polished receiver on the Bears.  Burress should come cheap, and he should be on his best behavior as he tries to rebuild his tarnished image.  It’s a win, win…win.  Make it happen Jerry Angelo.

Who doesn’t want to see him doing this in a Bears uniform next year?
