    Oh I didn't miss that one he boomed about 70 yards and put out of bounds inside the five. The real trick for some of these guys with the big legs is doing that from 50 yards out. It's consistently nailing teams inside the 20 and avoiding touch backs that really make the difference. That's the kind of stuff that makes you a hero to the defense.

    Fales will have to clear waivers to even make it to the PS. True, if he does, then poaching him would require another team to put him on their 53. If he's indeed "Trestman's project" will they risk him on the waiver wire?

    I agree there's little need to carry 3 QBs especially if Lynch makes the team and can be an emergency option. It would be ideal to store Fales on the PS but I don't know whether that will be a risk to take.

    At least he knows hes working for the defense.

    If you are nice to the defense and leave them in good field position they will buy you lunch.:10 7 1[1]:

    Dickerson and Wright reporting that Bears released Butler today. More evidence that O'Donnell has the job probably all but sewn up already.

    Yep, that pretty much seals the deal. I hope "Butthead Jr." finds a landing spot.

    Papa Butthead wasn't too happy about it but when they spent a pick on a punter that would pretty much tell you that all things being equal he's the guy whose gonna get the job. Would it have been better to keep Butler around all through camp only to give the job to O'Donnell then and leave Butler with no chance to catch on somewhere else? No. What they did was the correct thing to do. It shows respect for Butler as a vet punter.

    Papa Butthead forgets that he was a 4th round draft pick and that he was given the job because he was drafted too
