Jay Cutler and the Bears offense are working out at the same place the vice president goes when there’s a terror alert – the infamous undisclosed location. Jay Cutler is leading the activities and no defensive players were invited. Who is gonna make Jay run for his life or intercept his errant passes?
Meanwhile, Maggie Hendricks over at Grizzly Details thinks the Bears can just use technology to beat the lockout.
Lance Briggs is out pimping Gatorade and making the rounds with the local media. He chatted with The Score’s Boers and Bernstein and talked to Brad Biggs. He just wants to start playing football again and doesn’t even care about his $250,000 workout bonus. OK, he cares a little. And if he has no need for the $250k, he could just loan it out. I hear there are plenty of players who would be willing to pay crazy interest to get a little pocket money during the lockout.
Briggs will also be throwing out the first pitch at the White Sox game today. It might be the only chance you get to see Briggs on a playing field for some time, so go to US Comiskeyllar to see him. Will he bounce it to the plate or get it there on a fly? More after the jump…
Many folks seem convinced that Gabe Carimi should play right tackle while J’Marcus Webb will move over to left tackle. Not so fast says Scouts Inc’s Matt Williamson through Kevin Seifert’s NFC North blog on ESPN. Williamson hinks Carimi should be the man on the left side and isn’t convinced about Webb.
Speaking of Gabe, he’ll be leading a Jewish Unity parade in Skokie on Saturday. Hey, that’s kind of in my neck of the woods. Maybe I’ll go check him out.
The lockout is still on and Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio thinks it might actually somehow benefit the Bears. Hear what he told Danny Mac on Wednesday.
