I'm so out of practice with football writing that I am almost overwhelmed. My head is all into the election and how this is the most important election of our time. My heart is breaking by the people who are so stupidly willing to throw their votes away not because they like Trump or Green candidate Jill Stein but because they hate Hillary Clinton. Hard to write about Jay Cutler and, well, bla, Jay Cutler, when my head and heart and wrapped up in the election. But I will try!
Jay Cutler, bla. I discussed Jay with a friend and he believes Jay is actually shy and that's why it's hard for him to talk and not look all smirky faced. This makes sense. He's putting on a face but doesn't know what face to put on. Hint for Jay: Ask someone.
Charles Tillman, yeah! Charles "Peanut" Tillman was a Bear for 12 years until he was traded to the Carolina Panthers. He suffered a torn ACL during his year as a Panther which ended his season (but the Panthers went on to Super Bowl 50 but lost to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos). Charles Tillman and his wife, Jackie, run the Cornerstone Foundation. Its mission is to help improve the lives of critically- and chronically-ill children throughout Chicago. Tillman created the foundation after his daughter, Tianna, was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy and needed a heart transplant. Charles Tillman was named the Walter Payton Man of the Year for his charitable work.
In July 2016, Charles Tillman signed a one-day contract with the Bears so he could retire as a Chicago Bear. Good for the Bears! Good for Chicago that we have someone like Charles Tillman in our lives! Seriously. Check it out:
Hint for Charles Tillman: Keep being awesome.
