I know, I’m a little late to the party but I finally have time to comment on this move. So far, the Bears are looking fairly decent in the meaningless preseason. Last year, the defense was completely dominant in the preseason and I was ready to naked cartwheels in the streets. Then, the regular season arrived and we all saw happened (even when they were healthy). So who knows. Maybe the opposite is happening this year?
Here’s some good news: Eric Weems is finally gone. This guy really sucked. Last year, I was found saying in the recaps and to others that I did not understand what purpose Eric Weems has being on the Bears, or any other team. Eric Weems is not a football player and never has been a football player. Maybe this guy isn’t really named Eric Weems and it was possible that this guy that looks just like him, captured the real Eric Weems and is locking him up somewhere while stealing his identity. He should also be arrested for stealing from the Bears.
I am not sure how much Santonio Holmes has left in him but he was MVP of a Super Bowl and the Bears don’t need him to do much. But it doesn’t hurt to have a guy of his talent on this team. Trestman said that people can change through time and maybe his work ethnic will now that he is on a contender. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a privilege to be in the NFL and it might have been possible that he didn’t give a shit with the Jets because, let’s face it, it’s the Jets. I don’t hate the Jets but they did suck the last couple of years and that probably attributed to him not caring as much (along with his injuries). Maybe he’s ready to go or maybe he’s not. No matter what though, he’s not Eric Weems (or the guy pretending to be him).
Your thoughts in the thread.
