Audibles From the Long Snapper: Crazy Football Players, Broken Clavicles & the Safety Dance

| August 5th, 2014

SPOILER ALERT: FOOTBALL PLAYERS ARE CRAZY

Both the major Chicago dailies feature columns disparaging Martellus Bennett for body slamming first-round selection Kyle Fuller to the ground in a fit of rage. Mark Potash in the Sun-Times wants the alarm sounded and Bennett read the riot act:

The Bennett-Fuller dust-up might end up being an isolated incident, but it’s a red flag nonetheless. Martellus Bennett is a Pro Bowl-caliber tight end and a good teammate who defers to more productive players in the offense. But on the field and off he’s an acquired taste that is not for everybody.

“I’m not here for friendships,” Bennett said.

That’s all well and good. You don’t have to make friends to be part of a winning team. But you definitely have to avoid making enemies.

If Bennett would have seriously hurt Fuller this would have been an unmitigated disaster. But he didn’t. Fuller is fine. And Bennett is a football player. I’m sorry if I don’t expect gigantic, jacked up Neanderthals to be well-adjusted human beings.

Also, on Potash’s last sentence…really? Do we spend so much time celebrating the 1985 Chicago Bears we actually forget who and what they were? There were plenty of enemies on that roster and two fierce enemies on the coaching staff.

Marquess Wilson Injury Makes Preseason More Interesting

I bet you didn’t expect THAT headline from me, did you? Let me explain.

Marquess Wilson was cemented in the third receiver role and had built tremendous chemistry with Marshall and Jeffery. I’m someone who seriously doubted Wilson’s potential impact but I never doubted the organization would give him every opportunity to make that impact. Now it’s unknown how long Wilson be sidelined and the door is open for a half dozen players to cement on position on the final fifty-three.

All of the men behind Wilson on the depth chart – Weems, Bellamy, Morgan, Williams, Edwards – will now have an opportunity to make the roster as far more than a special teams contributor. And with none of them being all that good it makes for a particularly interesting war to be waged in camp and throughout the preseason.

Side note: I banged the drum hard for the Bears to add more weapons to this receiving corps both in free agency and the draft and met more resistance from fans than I expected. Now I believe they wish they had added a capable professional along the way.

Safety Dance

Sun-Times has an article about Ryan Mundy moving to free safety. Larry Mayer has a column featuring Mel Tucker’s praise of Adrian Wilson. Marc Trestman is giving radio endorsements of Chris Conte’s 2012 campaign. Tribune has a piece about Brock Vereen’s push for the starting lineup.

All in the last two days.

Outside of Wilson there is very little on the Bears roster at the safety position. Whether Mundy or Conte or Vereen starts will more than likely be a negligible difference. But a revitalized Wilson, even at 75% of his past form, could bring stability to a back line desperately in need of it.

    Safety Dance? Turrible song.

    • DaBearsBlog

      I was in a car yesterday for four hours with regular radio on a pop station. Uhh…what the fuck is going on with music? Safety Dance is Shakespeare compared to Chris Brown’s Loyal.

      • MB30SD

        Chris Brown, byonce, 9/10 of the same fucking 8 songs they have on a circular play pattern are all dogshit…

        …that said, safety dance is a turd too.

      • CanadaBear

        Were you mad at yourself? Some latent Catholic guilt rearing it’s ugly head?

  • “Now I believe they wish they had added a capable professional along the way.”

    They did. His name is Josh Morgan. Why does everybody assume Morgan will suck? I would feel better about Morgan as a WR4 than WR3, but he’s still a perfectly capable WR3. What this does do is make them awfully thin should another injury strike one of their top 3, but how many teams have that kind of depth anyway that they trust their 5th WR to step into a big role if 2 guys in front of him get hurt?

    I would be happy with an Earl Bennett reunion here, but honestly think Morgan is just as good as, if not better than, Earl.

    • what I wish they had added was a high-upside rookie TE who can catch the ball. I really wanted AC Leonard, who somehow went undrafted and signed in Minnesota for only a $4000 signing bonus. I don’t get at all why the Bears didn’t add a single high profile UDFA TE when backup TE was the one glaring hole on their roster that wasn’t addressed in the draft (or UDFA with Christian Jones).

    • Bender McLugh

      can’t Weems also fill the WR3 role?

      • Weems has been in the NFL for 6 years and has fewer than 30 career catches. His best season as a WR saw him grab 11 balls for 90 yards.

        Morgan has been in the NFL for 6 seasons and has 199 catches. His WORST season saw him grab 15 balls for 220 yards (or 20 for 214 yards for his lowest yardage total).

        For comparison, Weems has 240 yards in his 6 year career, so Morgan’s worst season is comparable to Weem’s 6 year career.

        Weems is a great ST gunner who should not be playing much WR for you. Morgan is a solid WR3/4.

    • DaBearsBlog

      Where is Earl Bennett? Why has nobody brought him in?

      • Bender McLugh

        read somewhere that he has had several team’s interest but has not replied to them, so no one is certain if he wants to return. Maybe he is waiting for Bears….

      • I’ve heard rumors that multiple teams have expressed interest in Bennett but he’s not shown much desire to play for a minimum salary. Saw some journalist tweet that last night. Don’t have it confirmed or anything though.

        Personally I’m not holding my breath for Earl. Like I said, Morgan is just as good, maybe better. I liked Earl because he did his role well (possession WR who is a solid run blocker), but he was a pretty limited WR with no deep speed. His completion percentage and yards per catch/target last year showed that he was used more like Forte than any other WRs/TEs. So a ton of short stuff. He caught a lot of it, but couldn’t do much with it. Useful, but limited.

        The primary value of Earl to me is that he knows the offense and Cutler trusts him. That would be more ideal in terms of an emergency call-up if one of the current top 3 gets hurt.

        • CanadaBear

          Earl scored 4 or 5 td’s last year. Considering he only had about 32 catches, that was pretty good. I thought he looked pretty good towards the end of the year when he started scoring. Oh well. Always liked him a lot.

        • Cormonster

          Forte had a higher ypc last year than Bennett. Bennett only had around 7 ypc.

          • yep, but their catch percentage (78.7% vs 72.7%, yards per catch (8.0 vs 7.6), and yards per target (6.3 vs 5.5) were very similar. Earl was used for dumpoffs like a RB more than an actual WR. For comparison, the other WRs/TEs each had catch %s less than 68% (less than 65% for the WRs) and yards per target at 7.9 ypa or higher.

            Dependable option, but not a guy who scares defenses.

      • bearsfantillend

        The Browns signed Earl then cut him a month later. Earl’s brother died last December from H1N1(swine flu), thats why he was inactive for the last game last year. not sure if that has affected his play or desire to play.

        http://www.chicagobears.com/news/article-1/Bennett-coping-with-brothers-death/c8124159-154f-4e2d-b000-ef1774b12e73

        • For your consideration….

          earl has turned down 4 teams. I think after his brother died he checked out unfortunately.

          • SC Dave

            Maybe he decided to spend his millions before something happened to him. Can hardly blame him, actually.

  • Peanut FTW

    It is tough to sign someone for the WR/3 spot at this point. It isn’t serious enough to roll the dice with Santonio Holmes when he can’t give you a ST body. Backup TE is the same way.. though I wouldn’t mind seeing them roll the dice on Finley. I mean best case you get a great TE on the cheap, worst case you get to see him fail miserably after he talked smack about Lach.

    • IMO nobody out there is better than Morgan. So you roll with what you have. More about having an emergency plan in place in case somebody else gets hurt and you need somebody in WR3 role then. Kind of why they brought Palmer/Edwards in to camp last year after Blanchard injury. You want somebody who knows the offense to be able to step in.

      • MB30SD

        There’ll be plenty of falling detritus to stick a net under this month. .. no?

    • For your consideration….

      Finley has a 10mil insurance policy so some team would have to make the most over the top offer ever for him to sign. I don’t think that will happen for a guy who is one hit from the golf course.

  • MB30SD

    Kinda don’t get all the hubbub.

    Wasn’t there a lot of talk about him looking not so good? And it’s a collars bones… badge was out 7 week but he’s a pussy qb, and the entire gb team… they had to be hyper cautious with him. It only took some writing (can’t memba who) 3 weeks to come back from his last year.

    Loosing depth always sucks, just doesn’t feel like this is as huge an emergency drill as it’s being made out to be. … is it?!

    • Bender McLugh

      agreed, seems like we’ll be good. But the early feedback from camp was Wilson looking very good, great routes, etc. which would mean holy-shit-offense if that’s the case. I kinda agree on Morgan being the best WR3 option, has the size, just hope he can still catch.

      • MB30SD

        I could have sworn gp… in his report from Bourbonnais. .. said he looked slow and lost with bad routes.

        Did I mistake marquese for adrian gp?

        • Bender McLugh

          found this:

          Wilson did seem on the verge of putting it all together before fracturing his clavicle
          during practice on Monday. He routinely made difficult catches over the
          first eight practices, displaying arguably the best route-running
          footwork of any of the wide receivers in camp

          http://espn.go.com/blog/chicago/bears/post/_/id/4693416/injured-wilson-needs-help-in-recovery-process

          not sure of other reports, nor if this Jeff guy is reliable.

          • MB30SD

            Wow. Must have been adrian gp was talking about. Maybe I manufactured the routes part.

          • CanadaBear

            It all depends on how bad it was broken and where. I’m guessing Vadge was out so long because he has to throw the ball. I broke mine a few years ago and it’s a pisser. When I took off my sweatshirt to take a look, one of the bones was running parallel to my neck. WHEEEEEEE! I also broke 4-5 ribs below my armpit. A word of advice. Try not to get bucked off at 40 mph. No road rash to speak of. I landed in the grass (2″ of top soil and then all rock/sand). I basically got body slammed at 40 mph. I’m a little more cautious downhill these days!!!!!!!!!

          • GPLDAN

            No I was talking about Wilson. It was one day, granted, but he was pointed at by QBs to line up and off the snap he looked slow. Again, this is incidental and just one viewing. Maybe he had a bad day. I never thought he had what it took.

        • CanadaBear

          Pretty sure GP was talking about MW. Dickerson is about as reliable and Haugh. Gotta remember GP was only at the first practice. I read 2 or 3 times that MW was stepping up. Hope he’s back soon. Although, I agree with JW that Josh Morgan is a decent 3rd WR and don’t get all the handwringing about our WR depth.

  • GPLDAN

    Data is high on Josh Morgan, eh? Spurlock also has some chops.

    • looking at the NFL resumes of the reserves in camp, he is far and away the most proven. He’s a capable WR3 IMO. Don’t think he’ll be anything special, but he’s competent. And has been a pretty good run blocker in the past from what I’ve read.

  • GPLDAN

    I wonder if Chris Williams will be given a shot to return kicks against the Eagles. He’s fun to watch.

  • CanadaBear

    Not real happy with the Black Uni. Totally uncalled for and just stupid. I get the competitive fire but that was over the top. If Trest gave him the day off, I hope the Black Uni takes it seriously.

    • SC Dave

      Disciplinary, for sure. Trestman gets better all the time

  • DocNitty(BallsStillOrnamental)

    Martellus suspended indefinitely? Was the fight really that bad? Damn.

    • For your consideration….

      fought, showed up Trestman’s team philosophy with his post fight comments, went after Marshall verbally and expressed no remorse after Fuller did nothing wrong.

      • GPLDAN

        And this came from Emery probably.

        No dissent and punk-ass shit in this season where expectations are high.

        You can debate the 85 Bears all day. Leslie Frazier probably put Dennis McKinnon on his back twice a week, and I know Mongo and Bortz used to dust up regularly. But that was a different era.

  • Bender McLugh

    woah…..just heard Bennett suspended. Any details?

  • DaMurph

    If Bennett’s stupid move would have injured Fuller, major catastrophe! It was a BS move on Martellus’ part. The suspension was needed and warranted, IMO.

    • Shady

      The worst part about it for me was the Unicorn’s response to a question regarding a possible fine: “I can afford it.”

      Didn’t think he was such a punk.

      • For your consideration….

        i personally think he went after Marshall verbally after the fight and that is why Brandon is not participating in team activities either. I can only imagine how Bennett went after the mental stuff.

        • Shady

          Crazy on crazy crime.

          • For your consideration….

            things are getting a little dicey. Need this first preseason to get here. I’m sure Bennett will be reinstated right after that game.

      • For your consideration….

        he doesn’t do well with confrontation and it was just after the incident. I think he is an angry young guy in general despite some of the silly act that he engages in. I think he will approach Fuller and the team and make amends in a couple of days.

      • CanadaBear

        I’d give him a pass on that. He was still amped up. Gotta admit I was disappointed with the response.

        • DaMurph

          Why be that amped up though? What Fuller did wasnt shit! If you cant control it with your own teammates, over some bullshit, it left a bad taste in my mouth.

          • Bender McLugh

            my guess is he was still amped because BMarsh put him in his place, and guys with that type of ego don’t play that.

      • DaMurph

        Yeah agree Shady, I realize he plays to the beat of a different drummer, but damn man, dont sound like a total douche!

    • CanadaBear

      Everything I’ve read it sounds like Fuller made a nice play and Bennett’s ego couldn’t handle it. Can’t imagine how nasty a fight could get between Bennett and BMarsh.

  • For your consideration….

    Frey carted off and Mills done practicing and talking to trainers.

    • GPLDAN

      Hammy 4 Frey?

      • For your consideration….

        quad

        • For your consideration….

          speaking of quads, Jennings must be really hurting.

      • For your consideration….

        Hammy confirmed. Frey in a lot of pain.

    • Shady

      FFSFBMF!

    • Damn. Hope it’s not serious. I really like Frey. One of the reasons I thought Emery would not draft a CB in the first. That and I didn’t foresee him valuing Fuller that much (or Shea or Long for that matter).

      • I’d say right now Frey is a long shot to make the team. Unless he’s hurt seriously enough they can put him on IR.
        Numberss game. Tillman, Jennings, Fuller, and Hayden all clearly ahead of him. McManis is making it for ST. So do they like Frey enough to keep 6 CBs? Maybe, but they have a lot of depth at LB, OL, DL, WR, S. Especially with Wilson’s injury if he doesn’t go IR, then you have to keep an extra WR.

  • For your consideration….

    I think they need a guy like Earl back on the team for a little stability. Everyone likes Earl and Earl likes catching first downs.

  • DocNitty(BallsStillOrnamental)

    Have I mentioned lately that I hate injuries?

    • AlbertInTucson

      But, Doc, they make “.. the Preseason more INTERESTING” don’t they?

      Monty Python: “Oh, this is ‘Being Hit Over The Head’ Lessons”.
      “What a stupid concept.”

  • AlbertInTucson

    I guess Trestman felt a message needed to be sent.

    • SC Dave

      And he was right..i mentioned all this on the last thread. Martellus wasted practice time, and Trestman will HATE that

  • Just did my preliminary FF scouting. Prepare your Angerer!

    2013 in review.

    My Fiametta-World-Peace(s) won the traditional Irish league (ironic, given his unconventional ideas). That team was like the Ravens, clawing into the play-offs at 6-4-3, then winning the whole thing.

    However, these things tend to balance out. I teabagged everyone in Artoo’s league only losing 1 game, but injuries took their toll, and in Yahoo league the championship is only 1 game, which gives everyone a puncher’s chance. So I came in 2nd. Sadly, I looked at the matchup and knew I was going to lose beforehand. I felt like the mighty King Leonides in 300 before the Persian hordes.

    My McDragos racked up a solid 9-4-0 record, which was enough for Shady’s wild cage match double QB league where you get points for handoffs. But alas, I pulled up just short in that, so again I finished 2nd.

    But I shall avenge my losses! I shall emerge victorious once more, or may the blue aliens anally probe Irish’s Angerer!

    • GPLDAN

    • NewBearInTown

      Well hop on board. Email 2014draft@NewBearInTown.33mail.com I’ll send you an invite. That goes for the rest of you as well.

  • For your consideration….

    oh boy, it’s definitely about more than one issue. Marty has a real issue with Marshall and they went at it for almost 5 minutes back and forth after the scuffle. Then Marshall talked with Emery post practice as well.
    Kromer also said that the bears want the “right” Martellus Bennett back on the team.

    • Cowboy fans warned us about “bad marty.” Said he had talent, but was mercurial at best, dysfunctional at worst. All the tools, except for the one in the head.
      Last year was the honey-moon period. But as anyone who has dated a crazy chick knows, the lunacy never appears in the first few dates.
      Hope MartyRex has an epiphany, and soon. Bmarsh is the defacto leader of that team now.

      If Emery and Trestman were smart, they’d schedule an intra-scrimmage with another team immediately.

      Nothing makes ppl bond like a common enemy.

      As the Bard notes, “Familiarity breeds contempt.”

      • Cormonster

        A Cowboy fan friend told me the same thing about Bennett. Said he can be a cancer on the team. I heard that before the altercation, teammates were getting on Bennett because he was lazily walking back to the huddle after each play instead of hustling like everyone else. Maybe he was crabby because practice got moved up to 9am from 3pm. Sounds like he had a bad attitude all day. Also heard he has been lazy in other practices as well. That’s a bad example to set. Hopefully he straightens out.

      • SC Dave

        Damn good idea on the intra-squad, though I bet the CBA makes it impossible.

    • johnnywad

      Better get his shit together fast. This ain’t Camp Lovie anymore and neither Trestman nor Emery suffer fools. This offense is too damn good to put up with bullshit and they’ll move on without him if he continues to be a tool. It would hurt, but this thing is going too well to risk anything for a tight end. He’s not BM or Alshon. Not easily replaced, but certainly not top four or five at his position.

      • MB30SD

        this

        • SC Dave

          This this

      • NewBearInTown

        Problem is, we just lost our third receiver and we don’t have another tight end on the roster that can catch passes. We can get by without him, but it would be a major hit.
        He needs to get his head right and get back with his team. Every player interview I’ve heard is on the same page.

    Isn’t this the cauldron of shit that Jay Cutler needs to step up to fix?

    Couldn’t he settle the issue between BM and Unicorn?

    SI and other rags hate on Cutler for his seeming complete lack of leadership. Seems to me this is a moment made for a QB to pull his offense together.

    • How would Cutler side-step that landmine? His bromance with Bmarsh is too intense.
      Maybe Josh McCown? Irish? (poking the bear).
      Maybe we can temporarily re-sign Olin to regulate?

    • For your consideration….

      I don’t think this is the place for the QB. It’s not like Martellus is a rookie or 2nd year guy. He’s a veteran making big money and has a huge ego and attitude. This is a situation for the coach and the GM. This is an ongoing issue. Bennett obviously doesn’t respond to the other players.

      • SC Dave

        I respectfully disagree. This is exactly the time for the “franchise” to tell a player to get his shit together or get the fuck off the team.

  • Bender McLugh

    just listened to Emery talk about the suspension, it’s not “indefinite”, it’s a “specific amount of time”, for whatever that’s worth.

    • Bender McLugh

      also said there won’t be any further info coming about the suspension.

    • Here’s the trib link

      http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/football/bears/chi-martellus-bennett-fined-suspended-20140805-story.html#lightbox=81004347

      Two things:
      When they asked E if they suspended him for yesterday, or for other incidents, he responded, “For conduct detrimental to the team”. In other words, not just for the Fuller altercation.
      When they asked E if the suspension is indefinite, he responded that it’s an “ongoing process” and that it involves Bennett.
      In other words, it’s undetermined based on Bennett. If he seems contrite, then the suspension will be short. If he keeps saying shit like “I can afford it,” it’ll be longer.

  • Cormonster

    Packers best backup OL Don Barclay likely tore his ACL. Just a week or two ago McCarthy said this was the best offensive line he has had as coach of the Packers. Barclay has started 21 games at RT the last two years, and he is also the number one backup at both guard positions. The starter at right tackle, Bulaga, missed the second half of 2012 with an injury and all of 2013 with a torn ACL.

    • johnnywad

    • NewBearInTown

      This is writer looking for an excuse to print 50 photos of athletes he likes. Lebron is a crazy good athlete. So is Adrian Peterson. So is Calvin Johnson. Who decides which one gets an “8” for strength or speed or whatever?
      Another way to think about it. There are linebackers and professional fighters on that list who did not get better than an 8.5 for strength. No way does Lebron get a 10.

    “Marquess Wilson Injury Makes Preseason More Interesting”

    Really?

    We don’t need an “interesting” Preseason if those are the parameters, thank you.

  • For your consideration….

    who the fuck is Greg Herd and why is it not spelled Santonio Holmes or Earl Bennett?

    • GPLDAN

      He’s a URFA the Seahawks cut when he hurt his shoulder who has never suited for a game and has exactly 0% chance of making the cut. Willie Gault at age 58 can still outplay the guy.

      • For your consideration….

        Is he banging Trestman’s daughter? Did he win a raffle?

        • MB30SD

          I’d like to be banging trestman’s daughter… she’s like 25 now right. Totally in my range.

    • NewBearInTown

      My guess? He’s somebody who can’t claim termination pay when he doesn’t make the roster. Or he’s somebody the Bears think will work hard in camp knowing he likely doesn’t make the final 53. Earl and Santonio might have a harder time swallowing that reality.

  • For your consideration….

    Per Bears source: bears release some guy to sign some guy

    I want a boring preseason. PS: No decent WR comes to the Bears in FA if not for money. The 3rd WR must be a draft pick because AJ and BM make a lot of money and that money will double in 8 months. The ideal thing to do if you want a very good 3rd WR is by trading for one… example: Stevie Johnson from Bills to the 49ers for a 4th rounder. He has 3 years/ 16 mil… NOT guaranteed.

    My thoughts on Bears at the moment. Solid move by Trestman et al to suspend Bennett. Not just about the training camp scuffle. Lazy between plays a sore spot. Not big enough to reprimand, but everyone else is hustling and your not. Pain in the ass, as a coach. Undermines the integrity of themes the coaches are trying to build into the culture. But even those 2 things added together don’t warrant the suspension. Getting into it with Marshall, probably still not enough, but maybe. Being a douchebag/asshat on TV. Deal clincher.

    On third wide receiver, Jeff is simply wrong about Wilson. But the Bears will recover, lots of “guys” on the squad could fill this position competently. Good to see players that we have get a longer look. Maybe there’s some hidden talent. Love that Tremery is out there looking for talent. Cupboard is likely bare. Jeff fails to mention what he would give up to have taken a WR in the draft. It’s a premium position. So anybody in rounds 4 and higher, isn’t likely to be any better than we have on the roster.

    Any article about anybody moving anywhere at safety is obviously conjecture. It’s great that everyone is getting a look at both positions. Putting different players in different spots is just what happens when you have 6 guys competing for 2 different spots. Position coach says I want to get a look at these two guys paired up this way, these two guys paired up this way etc. No rocket science or mystery.
