Hello America. Brando Schrute here. Pretend Assistant Sub-Regional Manager of Biggs Blog. As usual Brad posts injury reports which are of no importance when he could be discussing something far more interesting. Like real Bears or Beets, or how Bears eat beats. Now that me and my alliance have defeated the evil Creighton with what is being called the Melton manuver, I have decided to start my own daily blog right here on Brads daily Bears blog. This way I can actually make this blog interesting.

This is my web log. Or "blog". I call it "Schrute-Space". Because my last name is "Schrute". And it is a space. For me to write in.

I am excited to have the BILLIONS of people who rely on the internet every day (whether it be to look up weather and traffic, to research academic papers and/or to download pornography) turn to SCHRUTE-SPACE to get their daily fill of what Brando has to say.

First Entry:

I hate Salmon. It's so pink. And it smells like fish. Salmon sucks! I hate Salmon. I hope they all die in those rivers.

Also: We had our 5th annual "GUMBY AWARDS" ceremony the other night. My Dungeon Master did not see fit to bless me with an award but I did get my fill of CHILI'S "Triple Plays" (they call it that, not because it has a baseball theme, but because it has 3 (THREE!) components to it). Boneless buffalo wings, Southwestern Eggrolls and chicken crispers!!! Moist good food. NO SALMON!!!

Also: I did the music/sound/technical/AV elements for the evening. People were blown out of their seats by how loud I was. They we're
really impressed with my technique and rhythm. My Dungeon Master told me I could do it again next year and that I could wear my camoflage.

I'm thinking about becoming a DJ. DJ's always need a cool name. I
could be DJ Brando. Or maybe DJ Schrute. Or DJ Brando Schrute. Or
DJ B.S. Or DJ BJ. But that's dirty. So that's no good. If I wanted
to work children's parties.

I would be a DJ that specialized in NON-DANCE MUSIC!!! AD/DC. Ratt. Phil Collins. Insane Clown Posse. Deep Purple. Because not everyone wants to dance. And I would be their go-to guy.

America. Thanks for reading Schrute-space. I will be back with
another 'post' when I think of something that I want to say here.

Hunter Hillenmeyer not playing sunday doesn't surprise me. That rib injury must have been a lot worse than Chicago first thought. Maybe broken? I think the recent play from Nick Roach might be another reason Chicago isn't exactly rushing Hunter back. Roach has really come on, hopefully he keeps it up.

The injury to DT Anthony Adams kind of threw me off, but with Marcus Harrison and Matt Toeaina, there is depth at the nose position. Its also nice to see Israel Idonije back, Chicago needs the depth at the under tackle position. The play from Chicago's front four is gonna be key sunday. They can't let Falcon's QB Matt Ryan get in a groove like he did last season. He really tore Chicago up last year, especially underneath. Part of the problem with Chicago's defense defending the short pass is actually schematic. Chicago's corners keep everthing in front of them when their in their base defense. Ryan saw that last season and systematically moved the ball on Chicago all game, It was frustrating to watch. Chicago had to play the bend but don't break defense, which is all good if you don't break. Which they did in the end. They need to get in Ryans face and not allow him to get in a groove like last year, the play up front will be the key to the game GO BEARS!!

They should call you a55-hat.

This hadn't hit me till now, but the Anthony Adams injury could be huge. The Bears will need a top effort from their defensive line for 60 minutes in order to compete with these guys (if Atlanta's last game was any indication), and Adams is their most stable tackle. I hope this doesn't mean that Turner has a big game.
