Packers vs BearsAs the end of july approaches, it is becoming so clear that the start of training camp is right around the corner. Aside from the regular accumulation of season preview magazines, every moment of sports radio discussing the upcoming season, and bloggers beginning the breakdown of every single conceivable nugget of football, a rite of passage for the summer has arrived. Every year I await with gusto as this happens, so the fun can begin... 

The Chicago Bears Homers Come Out. 

For 35 years I have lived in the Chicago area, and for the last 25 I have paid attention to football with increasing interest. I have been subjected to the nonsensical progniscations of the"experts" of what the Bears' record will be. I have listened with interest, and fair judgement, as to what the record for the Monsters of the Midway will be. I usually can take the semi-intelligent discussion fairly well, and offer a few points to make the Bear fans rethink their record projection. Usually calmer heads prevail during these discussions.

Brett Favre in August 2010 Mens JournalSo Brett Favre spoke out again...

This is getting to be like Kevin Spacey in "Seven" saying "I've gone and done it again." 

In an article in Mens Journal, Favre spoke about the summer of 2008, and the events leading up to his trade to the Jets. Sounding like a spoiled child not being able to get his way about going to the Vikings then, Favre even tried to persuade a trade to the Bears.

Or even the Lions.

To review the Lions history over the past 10 years is a study in the futility of an NFL franchise. Led by perhaps the worst GM in professional sports history (Matt Millen), the Lions would go on to have the first winless season in 2008 since the '76 Buccaneers.

Now imagine Favre on that team.

Green Bay Packers quarterbacks Bart Starr and Aaron RodgersWith all the Super Bowl chatter that’s surrounded the shorts-wearing 2010 Packer squad this season, I thought it might be interesting to see how Aaron Rodgers stacks up against the dynasty quarterback, Bart Starr.

Granted, that’s a great deal like comparing apples and oranges. The game has changed a lot since the Starr era, but hopefully this will be a fun comparison and spark some discussion about the future of the team and whether or not Aaron Rodgers can match the five championship rings that Bart Starr has.

I guess you can call them highlights. Sure give us a taste of the coming season.

I think, in addition to playing very vanilla on defense in order to not tip his hand, Capers was also trying to ensure that his players won't get hurt.
