Michael Crabtee should get what he deserves

I believe that Michael Crabtree should get exactly what he deserves, which is not what he thinks he deserves.

What Michael Crabtree has done is get drafted 1oth and turned down money for 10th. He's still holding out and may possibly re-enter the draft next year.

I think there should be a new rule that a player who holds out an entire season cannot be drafted in the same round that they were drafted in previously. That would make the 2nd round the highest he could be drafted, and his pay after next years draft would reflect a 2nd round pick. That would deter these college athletes who haven't done anything to prove that they can play in the NFL from being able to turn down $20 Million offers in the hopes of $30 Million offers. That's just flat out wrong. Ask the millions of people who will never see that kind of money.

Suck it up dude. Take the $15 Million or so being offered to you and get to work. After all, don't you have to make some money so you can make a living, or did your college find a way to pay you under the table?

Cutler is to blame

The Bears lost the first game, and I think everyone last night was clear on what the problem was. Jay Cutler made mistake after mistake. However, listening to 670AM "the score" this morning the radio guys are ripping on the defense secondaries.

My take is this. In a game where the offense lost the field position battle big time by giving away the ball on 4 interceptions and a fake punt, the defense still managed to get a safety, and keep Green Bay to very few points. The defense played so good that with as bad as the Bears played they still won the time of possession battle and had more yards offense. That's pretty impressive.

The Bears lost simply because of Jay Cutler. Sure I think Ron Turner is partly to blame for calling so many pass plays when the quarterback was clearly not settled. But even with a pass play being called Cutler consistently threw off of his back foot and threw to his "favorite" receiver despite him being double, triple, and even quadruple covered. Throwing to someone else, checking down, or throwing the ball away would have been a better decision many times yesterday.

Bears, any receivers coming?

The Vikings release Bobby Wade, their best receiver the past 2 years and Marvin Harrison is still unemployed. Any chance the Bears pick up a receiver with some quality and experience?
