Bears' special teams gets more recognition

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

While the organization did zero to promote the fact that more than just returner Devin Hester and coverage ace Brendon Ayanbadejo were honored with Tuesday's release of Pro Bowl information, there is more good news.

Israel Idonije was selected as a third alternate behind Ayanbadejo, huge news considering his name was not on the fan ballot, that counts one-third in the selection process.

Kicker Robbie Gould, who has quietly put together a solid season, was chosen as the second alternate.

Cool, hopefully next year well have Harris,Urlacher,a DE,Vasher,Kruetz,and maybe Briggs in the pro bowl, but i doubt it.McCaskeys are cheap!

I'm glad that the special teams is getting more recognition. They deserve it, especially studs like Hester, Ayanbadejo, and Idonijie.

The special teams, with exception of a few good returns, were the best of the four phases this season.

But, how long can the Bears continue to burn a roster spot on a long snapper (Patrick Mannelly)? Team depth was thought to be a strength going into the season turned out to be horrible. And, having two players that can't play a position (Mannelly and Brendon Ayanbebejo) limits you.
