Bears add LB Gardner for special teams help; Wolfe to IR

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

The Bears made a move to give themselves some depth on special teams by signing linebacker Gilbert Gardner to the roster Friday.

Gardner, who won a Super Bowl XLI ring with the Indianapolis Colts, and finished second in special teams tackles with Tennessee last season. Gardner appeared in two games with Detroit this season before being released Oct. 25.

To make room for the former third-round pick out of Purdue, running back Garrett Wolfe was placed on injured reserve. Wolfe pulled his hamstring on the opening kickoff of last Sunday's game with Jacksonville.

With all of the criticism pushed upon the Bears coaching staff and GM (with good reason) I want to throw out some praise when it is due. Dave Toub has done an excellent job. On a team where the coaching staff has failed. Failed to execute, failed to develop, failed, Dave Toub has excelled. It has helped that Angelo has drafted 2 cats with tremendous ability in the return game in Danieal Manning and Devin Hester but Toub has consistently delivered. The Bears rarely give up long yardage on punt and kickoff returns, they have consistently had long returns with personnel turnover and they have developed one of the most consistent kickers in the NFL. For all of my frustration with Lovie, Ron, Bob and all the other clowns that have failed the fans, Dave Toub deserves to be recognized as one of the premiere coaches in this. Much like John Harbaugh in Baltimore, Toub deserves to be a head coach in this league. Well done Mr. Toub, if only we could hire up from within, Dave Toub wouldn't be a bad consideration for the Bears head coaching position.
