Santonio Holmes Gives The Bears An Interesting Option

santonioholmessuperbowl

The Bears signed Santonio Holmes on Saturday, and while this would have been a much more exciting signing four years ago, it’s still an interesting one today.

With Marquess Wilson going down with a broken collarbone in camp, the options the Bears had for the third receiver spot weren’t very inspiring, and now they’ve got an option in camp that could end up working out pretty well.

The Mailbag: Which Of Our Crappy Baseball Teams Is Better?

cubssox

Welcome to The Chicago Homer’s Mailbag. It runs once a week unless it doesn’t, and in it I answer questions from readers via Twitter or email. The questions can be about any damn thing you please, and there likely isn’t a question I won’t answer. There may be questions I can’t answer, but I’ll try.

If you’d like to submit a question for the next edition of the mailbag it’s pretty simple. Either ask the question on Twitter using the #AskTCH hashtag — as long as you use the hashtag I will see it — or send an email to TCHMailbag@gmail.com.

And now that you know how to do it, let’s get to the this week’s questions.

The Bears Will Not Be On Hard Knocks

As I wrote in January, I really wanted the Bears to be the subject of this summer’s “Hard Knocks” on HBO. They were one of the teams eligible to be on it this year according to the new rules the NFL imposed for team selection, and I had been hoping that I’d finally get the chance to go behind the scenes of training camp for the one football team I truly care about.

Well, hope in one hand, and you know the rest.

Ranking The Bears Draft Picks

Will Sutton

After three days the NFL Draft has finally concluded, and the Bears made eight picks. With them, the Bears hope to fill some obvious needs and ensure a team that finished 8-8 last season has enough talent to make a Super Bowl run.

That’s all well and good, but none of it matters nearly as much as ranking the Bears draft picks against one another. That’s right, the Bears Draft Pick Power Rankings you’ve been demanding are now officially here!

The Mailbag: Yes, We Have A Mailbag Now

mailbag

When I was writing over at The Champaign Room I started a weekly mailbag post, and enjoyed it. While some of the questions got a bit repetitive, it provided the chance to write about things other than Illinois sports from time to time.

Believe me, when you’re writing about Illinois sports constantly, you really look to find ways to write about anything else occasionally. Your sanity demands it.

Well, Chicago sports doesn’t have the same effect because I only write about whatever the hell I want when I want, but I still enjoyed doing that damn mailbag. So I’ve started one here now. This is it! The first one! You are reading history!

Would The Bears Sign The Sanchize?

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.

Josh McCown ‘Unlikely’ To Re-Sign With The Bears

joshmccown

The Bears have been active re-signing their free agents lately, but one of the names we haven’t heard much about is backup quarterback extraordinaire Josh McCown. Since the end of the season McCown has expressed his desire to return to the Bears and backup Jay Cutler, but saying and doing something are very different things.

And according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, it’s “unlikely” that he’ll be doing it.
