Mmmmm…Fried Chicken

I know that this blog is for the Bears only, but I couldn’t help but mention Michael Vick at least once. You see, Vick is going to be spending the next two years in prison for killing dogs.Former St. Louis Rams defensive end Leonard Little killed a woman in a drunk driving accident, and got community service. Vick gets two years for killing dogs.

You have to love this country.

Anyway, this is Bears related because all the talk now is about will Vick have a shot to get back in the NFL when he gets out of prison in 2009. Since the Bears won’t have a quarterback by then-they haven’t had one in 75 years, why should I expect them to have one in three?-they’ll probably be one of the teams mentioned when it comes to signing Vick.

The biggest roadblock between Vick and a return to the NFL though? Well, if you ask Falcons owner Arthur Blank, it’s all that fried chicken!!

Yeah, Art, maybe Michael will remember to stick to watermelon and hot sauce.

Your Newest Bear: Jimmy Kennedy

With all the injuries at defensive tackle that have resulted in Antonio Garay and Anthony Adams being placed on IR, and now the latest injury to Darwin Walker‘s elbow, you kinda figured the Bears would have to sign somebody to play this weekend.

They have, and it’s former Penn State Nittany Lion, and St. Louis Rams first round pick Jimmy Kennedy.

The Bears signed 6-foot-4-inch defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy to the active roster Tuesday to help fill a void with season-ending injuries to Anthony Adams and Antonio Garay.

Kennedy, who played under Lovie Smith with St. Louis Rams, was a first-round pick of the Rams in 2003 and former teammate of Adams’ at Penn State. He was traded from the Rams to the Denver Broncos before this season, then released by the Broncos in September.

Great! Lovie went and signed himself another former player who had a modicum of success under him! That worked out so well with Adam Archuleta!

This team is so fucked.
