Hello pro football fans from our “Rockstar” studio this is Dana Ward here with a quick hitter from the NFL.
The Chicago Bears followed-up their 2006 Super Bowl appearance with a disappointing 7 and 9 record in the 2007 season. The Bears defense was hit with multiple injuries to key personnel, so a return to great form is a possibility this season. The Bears three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Tommie Harris got a 40-million dollar contract extension from Chicago in the off-season. But there is a contract dispute with middle linebacker Brian Urlacher that is still pending and because of it, Urlacher has threatened to miss training camp.
But the issue that had all Bears fans frustrated about last season was their quarterback situation. As we are less than a month away from training camp, the number-1 and number-2 quarterbacks on the Bears depth chart are Rex Grossman and Kyle Orton, as Brian Griese is now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer. With no quarterback selected during the draft and no quarterback free agent signing in the off-season, Bears fans have been left scratching their heads. Can the Bears really endure another year of chaos at the quarterback position? Well, offensive co-coordinator Rob Turner was quoted as saying that the quarterback race is dead-even heading into training camp. Things have gotten to the point that the Chicago Tribune ran a story over the weekend pondering the possibility of former or present or somewhere in between Green Bay Packer quarterback Bret Favre playing for the Bears next season. The Trib ran a poll on their website with 65-percent responding in favor of Bret Favre being in a Bear uniform as the starting quarterback. ESPN reported over the weekend that Favre was considering coming out of retirement. But he responded that it was all rumor and there was no need for all the media coverage about his NFL return. He still has two years remaining on his contract and already walked away from 25-million dollars. It would be very doubtful for the Packers to trade Favre to a division rival.
The Bears released veteran running-back Cedric Benson and are hoping that Adrian Peterson, Garrett Wolfe and their young slew of backs behind them can carry the load. The Bears are counting on more big plays from their talented wideout and kick return specialist, Devin Hester. Hester possesses a great burst of speed and when in the open field is always a threat to score.
Recent form has fantasy football experts recommending to pass on both roster quarterbacks for league owners. The Bears open the season Sunday September 7th on the road against the Indianapolis Colts. The Bears are currently a 9-point underdog in their opener, and oddsmakers have made the Bears a 30 to 1 longshot to win Super Bowl 43.

Dana Milbank, We Salute You
Your Daily Politics Video Blog: All it took to set off a full 24 hours of cable news hysteria was one quote that the Washington Post's Dana Milbank attributed to Barack Obama - second hand, unsourced, out of context, and eventually widely disputed. Nice work, everybody.
