I'm getting to that age where a lifetime warranty just doesn't mean as much to me anymore as an afternoon nap.
Honey Badger Don't Care. Honey Badger Don't Give a Shit.
I agree Soul. Here's another Clutts article. Sounds like he's on thin ice & it would be a miracle if they keep him.
If we do cut him, I can see myself throwing a chair through the TV this fall, when we can't pick up 3rd and short, and when we settle for FG's because we can't pick up inches at the goal line - even with Bush, behind this crap oline.LINK to the article
Coaches have loved fullback Tyler Clutts' toughness since he arrived as a veteran of the CFL and Arena League. Nothing has changed, whether he lines up in front of Matt Forte or Michael Bush or is helping on special teams.
The Bears don't know for certain if they have a sledge hammer among their tight ends to help Forte or Bush from the blocking position in the backfield on short yardage. If they don't, they can always keep Clutts. However, the big threat to Clutts' job security comes from tight end Kyle Adams, who has shown an ability to be the "H-back" and also to be a tight end on the line.
Each day Clutts is one of the last off the practice field and frequently can be seen hammering the one-man sled by himself after everyone else has left the field.
When the Bears staged a rare defensive back pass rush drill one day last week with backs picking up blitzers, the best at picking up the DBs was Clutts. And it wasn't even close.

The league is cyclical. I'm betting we will see passing teams that will be lacking goal line punch in the future. And voila' as if by magic someone will start using a FB again to hit paydirt. Everything old is new again and it will be the "new" trend tactic.
Stay ahead of the curve and keep Clutts.
Arguing on the internet is like winning the special olympics, even if you win your still messed up.
Restore the roar!
Soul/Jafb, don't get me wrong, I think he should stay too. I'm just pointing out the obvious.
Clutts just made a nice catch. The announcers just said he has good hands. At least they're letting him get plenty of reps tonight.
Armondo Allen just made a sweet move and caught a TD pass. This guy is really a talent.
