| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Pretty much everyone is getting healthier for the Bears and we didn't have to wait for coach Lovie Smith to say so. Devin Hester was held out of practice again today, and free safety Danieal Manning was added to the list with a back injury, but the players who were all limited on Wednesday had full participation today.

In Arizona, wide receiver Anquan Boldin (ankle) remained sidelined.

With Hester out, who's taking his reps?

I will probably re-post this in a livelier thread but ...

Watching the new season of TUF and Marcus Jones is one of the fighters. If anyone remembers him he was a 1st round pick by Jerry Angelo (22nd overall) in Tampa in 1996. It took him until his 4th year to get onto the field as a pass rush specialist when he recorded 7.0 sacks that season.

The next season, his 5th, he posted 13.0 sacks as a right defensive end ... the same year Sapp set the sack record. The next year? 3 sacks and out of the league.

The point? Jerry Angelo drafted a guy 22nd overall. Rod "The Savior" Marinelli coached him up so well it took him until his 5th season to make an impact. He had a great 6th season because Warren Sapp was busy destroyting the league. His 7th season, he was ineffective and gone. He's now trying to make a 6-figure contract in the UFC.

The Rod-love ... I've heard about enough of it and I said that when he was hired.
