Bears sign potential replacement for Maynard

| 7 Comments | No TrackBacks

With veteran Brad Maynard soon to become a free agent, the Bears signed punter Richmond McGee to a two-year contract Friday.

The former University of Texas punter spent parts of the last two seasons with the Bears after entering the league as a undrafted free agent with the Eagles in 2008.

Maynard has been one of the league's most consistent punters during his decade-long run with the Bears but had a league-worst average of 40.1 this season and was 29th in net average at 35.2.

This is a Joke right? This is old news that happened several weeks ago. Is this the best you can come up with?

Hey, at least they're updating the blog somewhat in the past week.

Give them some credit; at least they're not making up news (for once.)

I concur with Don. The site has been terrible lately at updating stories and uploading our comments. Sean isn't too bad when it comes to posting our comments but Neil with you it's like a 24 hour waiting period at least. And then there's the case of some posts just completely disappearing and never seeing the light of day. Is there anything that can be changed so we can have our thoughts posted like, within an hour or so? The guys on here used to discuss things and have back and forths and now that's virtually impossible because no one cares to wait an entire day to read feedback from other fans.

Agreed Mike, this used to be a fun blog to go back and forth with other people. Whether you liked them or not. Its hard to get a good conversation with anyone anymore. Hope this gets through and doesn't take 24hrs.

Well guys there is always the Trib. It is faster and Brad is over there, then again you gotta deal with Pompei and the other guys. Actually you don't have to read their stuff. Just like you don't have to post here.

Personally I don't think Sean or Neil want to do the Blog. I think Brad liked doing it and often had fun doing it. I think Brad liked Blogging, on the other hand Sean is more of a Twitter guy which is clear since he updates about once an hour.

Neil is more of a...? Ok I am not sure what Neil likes to do, but it's not blogging on this site, that's pretty easy to tell.

I do not know why they just don't shut it down? There are a ton of Bears blogs out there. I know that there are relationships of a sort on this board, like most boards and everyone likes some sort of seniority and it's familiar. But I suggest people try other sites. I suggest Neil and Sean close this blog, it's like a sad dying animal and the only hold overs are the old school original posters and It seems like most of us are just waiting around to watch it take it's last breath.

Or you could go with Brando's theory that Sean is trying ot destroy the blog because he is a 49ers fan, who covered the Vikings and Packers, and originally planted his seeds of destruction while he was a student at Northwestern.

And Neil, ummm Neil doesn't like football and want's to cover the Bulls??? I don't know.

Insider is the Myspace of the Bears blogging world.
