A little more than a week after requesting a trade, safety Chris Harris has been released by the Chicago Bears.
...
The 29-year-old Harris was a second-team All-Pro last season...

couple of former broncos here. and I think Brandon Lloyd deserved at least mention, but his current stats are about average for his career.

Coaches
Head coach -- Andy Reid, Philadelphia: The head man on the "Dream Team'' hasn't done his finest work meshing all his new toys. Starting with the Juan Castillo promotion to defensive coordinator, it's been a shaky effort for Reid in Philly.
Dishonorable mention: Steve Spagnuolo, St. Louis

Offensive coordinator -- Josh McDaniels, St. Louis: It was supposed to be the beginning of a beautiful friendship/working relationship between him and second-year Rams quarterback Sam Bradford. But the Rams are 0-6, and Bradford has clearly regressed.
Dishonorable mention: Brian Schottenheimer, New York Jets

Defensive coordinator -- Larry Coyer, Indianapolis: The Colts are winless and allowing a league-worst 32.1 points per game, topped off by that 62-point surrender at New Orleans on Sunday night. Need I say more?
Dishonorable mention: Ken Flajole, St. Louis

I think Hines Ward is about done....too many young talented WRs in Pittsburgh and he has bad knees and a dented melon.

He has 981 career receptions for 11,970 yards and 85 TDs.

He is due $4 million dollars next year and there is no way the Steelers will pay that.

It would be a shame to see him bounce around with another team....like him or hate him, he is a Steeler and they should be the only team he plays for....kind of like Rod Smith for the Broncos.

If I were him, I'd hit the 1,000 reception and 12,000 receiving yards marks and retire a Steeler at the end of the year.

He is 35 years old and played 14 years of hard nosed football.

I agree his career either over, or he bounces for one yr, then it's over.

Agreed 100%. Much respect for Hines Ward.

I have no issues at all with Hines Ward and how he plays the game.

He plays a position that usually takes all the punishment and he was a rare breed of WR that liked to dish it back out.

I would loved to have had him in Denver all these years.

Our team could use some attitude like that.

No comments about the Redskins' freefall? Does Snyder give Shanahan another year if they finish in last place?

The media is curiously silent on this as well. Shanahan seems to be grasping at straws. He's got Turner and some of his old players and they still can't get a run game going. Compare that to the Texans have the second best rushing attack in the league. Kubiak did so much for Shanahan.

I didn't want to get into it with anyone here. Shanny's shanny, and he's working for the most impatient owner in the game, and possibly the slimiest. Shanny always brought in the best players he could regardless of cost and regardless of how that might impact the team the next year. Even when he drafted Lambchop, BM, Kuper, Shiftler and Doom, he still traded a pick for Javon Walker after dumping Lelie. If you're rebuilding, you dont' trade a two for a wr with a bad knee and even worse attitutde. I'm not gonna bother with another post-mortem here. He's the best coach Den has ever seen, and I don't think Fox will change that, though I think Fox is a perfect fit for this job right now.

I just don't see him as having the patience to sit a schaub or somebody and develop them, or suffer the pains of a first/second year starter unless a guy like Lambchop can somehow fall to him.

He'd still might be a good fit in a place like Harbaugh got where there was young talent, but the staff was incompetent. Chicago might fit. And that's not because of Cutler the individual but just that he's a talented player, and the team has some talent on both sides. Det's coach doesn't seem up to the chore. Thank God SD didn't hire him until their front office got rid of talent.

PFT is reporting that Schaub is out for multiple weeks with a foot injury and Schefter is apparently hearing it's a Lisfranc injury. That sucks for Kubes. He has one of the best teams in the AFC this year when healthy and he's built it right in a team that can run the ball but can also take to the air when necessary. Luckily they have a bye then Jax so two weeks to get it figured out.

If there was ever a time for Leinart to succeed, this is probably his best chance.

That sucks....I root for the Texans to do well because of Kubiak.

Matt Leinart should be able to step up and play decent in that offense.

That's not really fair. Kubiak has had far more time in Houston, and some truly horrible seasons, to install that system and get his guys. I think Kubiak always brought great teaching and communication skills to the table but Shanahan was the mentor. And it's not like the Skins have been completely unable to run this season. When Hightower was healthy, they had some pretty good games. I think Shanahan just needs a QB and a little more time. We'll see though.

That's fair. They're gonna need to draft/sign someone for sure.
