Ryan Grant trash tweets the Bears

Posted by Andy BenoitR. Grant

Ryan Grant, who has not played since injuring his ankle in Week 1 (word is his recovery is going well, by the way) sent out this tweet Saturday night:

"1st n last tweet .Pack Fans might want 2 start booking flights 4 feb. Not looking ahead but u c we just have better players than other teams."

The only “other” team left would be the Chicago Bears – and they wouldn’t necessarily disagree with Grant. Devin Hester said before Week 17 that he didn’t want to face the Packers again in the postseason. Linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa gave a cold water, level-headed response to Grant that was so truthful it took all the fun out of it.

"You don't [respond to that]," Tinoisamoa said on ESPN 1000 in Chicago "It's kind of tough, because Ryan hasn't played all year. So what are you going to say? It would be different if he was playing. You don't really respond to that kind of stuff.

"The game is played on Sunday. We're not going to buy into that hype. We know the importance of this game. We know how we feel about it."

At least Bears fans might have a thing or two to say about Grant’s trash talking. And perhaps so will Grant's teammates given that, you know, they'll actually be out there playing this Sunday.

Hot Routes 08.25.10: Bleeding nose and sore toes

- Donovan McNabb will sit out Washington’s third preseason game due to a sprained ankle. FB Mike Sellers also will be out.

- San Diego running back Ryan Mathews has undergone a procedure that would stop his nose from bleeding during games. The procedure sounds less than appetizing.

- Don’t say that Jaguars WR Jarett Dillard isn’t specific. In this article, Dillard explains exactly how many receptions he wants to make this season. That number is 67.

- Yesterday we wondered why the Redskins would sign Tyrone Carter given the team’s depth at safety. Now we know. Starting free safety Kareem Moore is expected to be out four to six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery Monday to repair a torn medical collateral ligament in his right knee.

- Ravens OT Jared Gaither doesn’t need surgery, but he’s not going to rush back, either.

- Well, at least Patriots RB Lawrence Maroney, who has just eight carries in two preseason games, has kept his sense of humor .

- Pisa Tinoisamoa may win the strongside linebacker job in Chicago after Nick Roach underwent minor knee surgery Tuesday.

- Jimmy Clausen is practicing but may battle a sore right big toe all season.

- Wondering which team will log the most travel miles in 2010? The answer: San Francisco, with 35,219 (thanks, in part, to the London trip).

- Kellen Winslow (or, since he’s a member of the Bucs, Kellen “Losefast”) may not play at all this preseason . He’s healthy – Raheem Morris just has no need to evaluate him at this point.
