    Not necessarily unexpected and I recognize this as perhaps another awkward decision an NFL business organization “had” to make. Nonetheless, this reflects quite poorly on the staff after stating Lynch would be allowed at least a heavy load of action in last night’s pre-season finale. As a fan, I really don’t appreciate or understand flaky rhetoric like that. Good luck to Mr. Lynch and, I guess, to the Bears too. They better win though, because the fans’ patience shouldn’t be expected to be any stronger then the staff’s.

    He would have made a good emergency QB. If he were active, and all the actual QBs went down, I’d want the ball in the hands of someone who has thrown the ball before. I’d like to see him get that chance somewhere.
