It’s been a while since I went into a football season as pissed off as I am now. Over the last few years, I have been more optimistic that the Bears would be competitive. Instead, it’s been horse shit.
With the Bears desperately in need of offensive line, they decided to cut Jordan Mills in favor of keeping Vladamir Ducasse. Let me say that I don’t think it’s going to matter at the end of the day if Mills makes a difference. However, he played really well two years ago and injuries messed things up last year. This preseason, he was healthy and played well in the final game against the Browns. I know that doesn’t mean much, but after hearing about Ducasse’s past on the radio, I came to the conclusion that this was a stupid decision.
This is from Ducasse’s Wikipedia page:
Performing well in training camp, Ducasse earned the starting job at left guard during the 2013 NFL Season. However, due to penalties and struggles, Ducasse was benched in favor for rookie Brian Winters. Ducasse played in all 16 games with 4 starts for the 2013 season. He became a free agent for the first time in his career after the season ended.
That’s just fantastic. So, a third-year guy in Jordan Mills, who played very well next to Kyle Long in 2013, became injured last year and now, is healthy, ends up getting cut for the reincarnation of Frank Omiyale?
I have a bad feeling this is going to be the 2009 Bears all over again with the offensive line. Dickface is going to get pummeled into the ground many times because the line will be like turnstiles.
Is Jerry Angelo secretly making moves up there?
