Default Bears' flight to Baltimore canceled

The Chicago Bears had hoped to get to Baltimore before the snowstorm arrived Friday but the team did not make it before its flight was canceled, according to the team's Web site. The team is scheduled to play the Ravens Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium.

The Web site says the team boarded its charter flight at O'Hare Airport late Friday but sat on the plane for two hours before it was canceled. The team's site says it will attempt to fly to Baltimore late Saturday.

The Ravens moved the originally scheduled 1 p.m. game to 4:15 p.m. Sunday in hopes of having more time to remove snow from the stadium and its parking lots. About 700 workers are staying at the stadium this weekend to remove the snow.

Bears are so toast!

One of Cutler's greatest strengths is his ability to throw interecptions in bad weather almost as well as he does in good.

In other Bears news...

Report: Lovie Smith is safe
Posted by Mike Florio on December 18, 2009 10:15 PM ET

Despite a 5-8 record and a third straight season of missed playoffs in a year of expectations much higher than that, Bears coach Lovie Smith will return in 2010, according to John Mullin of CSN Chicago. (Thanks for the tip, BlogdownChicagoBears.com.)

Citing "two highly placed individuals within the organization," Mullin explains that there will not be a change at the top of the organization, due in part to concerns regarding a work stoppage in 2011.

Mullin also explains that the team will likely be making no announcements in this regard, and that the proof will flow from the fact that Smith isn't fired when the season ends.

The report says nothing about the status of offensive coordinator Ron Turner. If he isn't fired, we recommend buying stock in any companies that sell pitchforks and/or torches in the greater Chicago area.

"two highly placed individuals within the organization," = Jay Cutler and a guy in sunglasses and a mustache going by the name Cay Jutler.

Once, when I was marching drum corps, we warmed up 1/2 mile away from the show site and ran long on the warmup. We all sprinted to the gate, ran onto the field, and did the whole show with nothing left in the tank. Did you hear me whining about it? Hell yes, you did.

My point? I don't have one.

Find a better way to get to Baltimore or watch the weather report, you idiots.

The story I'm getting is that Jay is the team's emergency pilot and flew the team to Baltimore himself.


The good news is, they got there rocket-fast!



The bad news is, they landed in DC.

I want the Bears to win... but I also want them to lose.

If Pitt is going to beat Balt then I want the Bears to lose.

... buuuuuuut, if that's not happening... yeah, we need a Bears win to guarantee a playoff spot at 10-6.

The franchise will not use the weather as an excuse.

Plain and simple the McCaskeys are cheap and wont pay two head coaches for the same time frame. Lovie has a huge $ amount and to hire a legit coach is going to cost more $.

Bears got Cutler to sell tickets.

I hope they don't play at the same time as us, Cutler at the Ravens could be a lot of fun.

Could you imagine if they played it at night? He'd set records!
