Andy talked a little about Mark Anderson last night and about the reasons why the Bears released him.

In effect, it didn’t seem that Andy was all that surprised. The same can’t be said for his teammates, as evidenced in this Chicago Tribune story.

As Brad Biggs writes:

The private reaction by multiple Bears players as the news broke was unified.

"What?"

That's how they replied via text messages. It's not that Anderson had been performing at a high level. But the Bears went from benching a veteran defensive lineman in Week 3 -- Tommie Harris -- to cutting one who was playing regularly after Week 4. That kind of moves catches even veterans who know NFL stands for Not For Long off guard. Maybe that very thought played a factor in the Bears' decision to make the move. Whether they will admit it or not, veterans now will be wondering when the shoe will fall again. Even starters will be on the lookout.


Grant Meanwhile, DE Charles Grant, who was signed by Chicago on Tuesday to replace Anderson, gets another chance – a few days after he was waived by the UFL.

In the Tribune, Grant calls it a rebirth. Considering the Omaha Nighthawks had just released him, I'd call this a miracle that only Nikki Sixx could understand.

And remember when Grant – who was indicted on an involuntary manslaughter charge – pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor from a 2008 incident at a Georgia bar in 2008 in which a pregnant woman was shot to death?

Well, Grant has an interesting take on that incident.

"I didn't do anything with that case. I was a victim,'' Grant said. "I had never gotten in trouble in my life.”

I guess Grant forgot about this case in 2001 when he was arrested after allegedly offering an undercover officer $50 for sex.

Teammates sound surprised by Bears cut

At the very least, I could always say that the Bears did not employ players like Grant. You step out of line, you get your walking papers. So much for that. The Bears' idiot GM is so desperate and inept that he made a move on his D line when it's his O line that needs help. And maybe the O line would be better off if Angelo ever used a high draft pick on a lineman.  Nope. He is too stupid to recognize the value of the position. Let's look at the starters on the worst line the league has ever seen:
LT - Frank Omiyale. 5th rounder that has been cut once and was never a starter. Was played at G last season despite being a tackle.
RT - Kevin Shaffer. 7th rounder. 330 pounds of pansy.
C - Olin Kreutz. Decent player 8 years ago. Undersized. There is no replacement on the roster. You know, because who needs a center?
LG - Lance Louis. 7th rounder. 
RG - Roberto Garza. Hurt now and replaced by someone named Edwin Williams.
?? - J'Marcus Webb. He moves around from one tackle spot to the other, so Cutler can get hit from different directions. Mainly RT. 7th rounder.
?? - Edwin Williams. ??????????????????????????????????????????????????
