Jimmy Clausen Is Your Bears Backup Quarterback

jimmyclausen

The Bears have begun making cuts to get the roster down to 75 by the Tuesday deadline, and it seems one of the bigger battles of training camp has been settled.

Jimmy Clausen is your backup quarterback.

I assume this also means that David Fales will be the team’s third quarterback. Though I must say I think just letting Jordan Palmer go could be a mistake. I mean, you didn’t even try him out at safety first. Or linebacker. Or cornerback. Or on special teams.

NFL: Chicago Bears-Training Camp

If you watch preseason football as nothing more than just a football game, you will be bored out of  your mind. By the time the second half starts the field will be filled with players you’ve never heard of that probably won’t make the team, and then that voice begins creeping into your mind, asking you just what it is you’re doing with your life.

And it’s very important to shut that voice up and stuff it back in its little hole where it minds its own god damn business. So how do you do that? It’s simple! You don’t watch tonight’s Bears game to watch the actual game, you just look for the interesting things inside the game.

Well here’s an idea that I’m sure won’t stir any kind of debate in the city of Chicago.

On Friday the Jets signed Mike Vick and released former first round pick Mark Sanchez. Which made a lot of people in New York and on the internet happy, because everybody loves making fun of Mark Sanchez. I mean, how can you not. He did give us all the joy of the #ButtFumble.
