I have unimpeachable inside sources in the Bears inner circle, and the word is that Staley is gonna be sprinting up and down the field in Soldier Field this year.
I hope he's fast enough to get around your starting Tackle, Aaron Gibson. Seriously though, if Staley were to end up in Chicago, he wouldn't be any better than Thomas or Peterson. He's never had a "burst" and if it's possible, he's slower than A-train. BTW- "Inside sources" who aren't named, are worthless.I have unimpeachable inside sources in the Bears inner circle, and the word is that Staley is gonna be sprinting up and down the field in Soldier Field this year.
Grid,What are the Bears willing to give up? Reid has stated he will not let Staley go like he did with Trotter. Unless they get value back for Staley they are content with letting Staley sit out the whole year if he wants to.
That ####er Dennis Miller did lift the 'Curse of Eddie Kennison' and you know it JTC.I guarantee, there'll be some announcement regarding Staley by noon tomorrow.LOFL at the Gridiron Assassin. He's got an inside source with the Bears. Wow, that inside source must love you blabbing all over the internet. Are you sure this guy ain't feeding you red herrings?And Dennis Miller was stealing your jokes.I don't know if I should start calling you John Nash.I'll believe it when I see it.
In the words of Judge Smales "You'll get nothing... and like it!"The Bears won't be giving up A-Pete or A-Train for a holdout, the Eagles have ZERO leverage on this deal dude. It's a done deal my friend.I ain't calling out Grid but I don't see how the Eagles can go into the season with Buckhalter and Westbrook as their RB's.
Unless we're moving Thomas or Peterson.
Definitely more value here than Duce Staley.Bears unveil new mascot "Staley"By Larry MayerSenior WriterAugust 6, 2003BOURBONNAIS, Ill. - He'll never score a touchdown or make a tackle, but the newest member of the Bears' organization will still be a valuable contributor on the field.How else would you describe "Staley," the team's new mascot who was unveiled Wednesday at training camp?Team president and CEO Ted Phillips did the honors, introducing the jersey-clad brown bear to dozens of enthusiastic children in the interactive area between practices.Upon making his entrance, Staley planted a kiss on Phillips' cheek-then promptly wiped off his lips, much to the delight of the kids."This was an idea by our marketing people," Phillips said. "They thought it was a good opportunity with the new stadium coming on board to kind of add to the fan-friendly and family-friendly atmosphere we want at the stadium."Staley will appear at every home game, including when the Bears open the new Soldier Field Sept. 29 on Monday Night Football against the Green Bay Packers. He'll perform a pre-game skit and provide sideline entertainment, but he'll also make appearances on non-game days."One of his big roles will be getting involved in community relations and being visible throughout the community with youth football efforts and other charitable efforts," Phillips said. "We think it's another extension of keeping the Bears brand and the name and the image out there in the public's eye and in the forefront of their mind."After being introduced Wednesday, Staley signed autographs, posed for photos and shook hands with children and adults. He even stood near the Olivet Nazarene University dormitories and waved to bemused players.According to Pat McCaskey, the team's director of special projects, the Bears haven't had a mascot since George Motyka dressed as a Bear through the 1984 season.Staley's name comes from the Decatur Staleys, the team's moniker when it was founded by George Halas in 1920. The organization became the Chicago Staleys in 1921 before being renamed the Chicago Bears in 1922."It seems like the kids have taken to him," Phillips said. "The name Staley has a lot of tradition and importance to the Bears family, so we thought it was appropriate."We hope he'll be a nice added value and be a lot of fun for the kids."
Actually, EVERYTHING I typed on this post is 100% ABSOLUTE FACT, and that's why I guaranteed there'd be an announcement. If you guys perceive things differently, you've got nobody to blame but yourselves.at least i wasn't completely lied to...
Ahhh.... early on a Thursday morning, I beckon back to the day of Abe Lincoln, who stated:"Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speakDidn't follow the links, but knew Grid was full of it. I can't believe how many people think that Grid is The Source for Bear football. All he ever posts is opinion about Wanny (not that there is anything wrong with that).
And what is up trying to take credit for the Eddie Kennison curse. That wasn't your theory that Miller stole. That was another poster. I can't remember who it was, maybe Maximus* or Kid C. Did we ever out Miller on the ol' yeller? I can't remember.
Damn, I can't believe I have actually posted in two threads started by Grid this year already. It is like rubbernecking at a gruesome car wreck, you know it is strewn pieces of filth, but you just keep staring.
Edited to add: Quantity does not mean quality. Grid is very active in posting and very vocal about the Bears, but that does not mean he is very well informed.
:(Dude, the deal is official, and like I said, the Eagles had ZERO leverage.
The news is on http://www.chicagobears.com and also here.
WOO HOO!!!! Staley will be entertaining the masses as he runs up and down the field - with OR WITHOUT that fat sack of feces Aaron Gibson at right tackle.
Have a great night ladies!!!!
WOO HOO.... GO Bears!
It's a feel good Friday, and it's still Wednesday night!!!
Ya baby! Go Bears....
And remember..... The Gridiron Assassin is THE SOURCE for breaking Chicago Bears news.... even BEFORE the news breaks.
PS: I'll bet Staley beats out the A-Train too.
