Kyle Fuller interception! He’s going to be great!
But Jordan Palmer THREW the interception! Get Jimmy Clausen out there!
These are meant to be written in jest but I can 100% assure you in some miserable cubicle somewhere a Bears fan is following camp updates on Twitter, sweating profusely through his free Joseph A. Bank suit shirt and having these very same thoughts.
Here would be my rules for enjoying the information as it exits Bourbonnais without committing the family savings to its relevance.
#3 Practice Field Results Don’t Matter
There is a simple fact individuals forget when it comes to camp results. For a Bears player to make a positive play, another Bears player needs to make a negative one. Someone must throw the pass on a brilliant interception. Someone must miss the block when a new defensive end gets to the quarterback unabated. When a receiver makes a great catch down the sideline, someone was tasked with covering him.
For instance, Larry Mayer of the Bears Tweeted this:
LM: QB Jordan Palmer hits WR Chris Williams deep down right sideline, beating CB Kyle Fuller.
This is presented by Mayer, who has never Tweeted or written a negative word about the Chicago Bears since a McCaskey started signing his checks. But nly one of those three individuals is going to be depended upon for success in 2014 and it ain’t the first two.
