WEENIE OF THE WEEK 4-28-17


We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week…the Chicago Bears who Thursday night at the NFL Draft traded away 4 picks to move up ONE spot in the draft. ONE spot. ONE! All so they could pick quarterback Mitch Trubisky.

This despite the fact that it was considered pretty unlikely that the 49er’s, with whom they switched places, were even interested in the UNC QB. What's more, this comes just 6 weeks after the Bears signed some other stooge to a $45 million dollar contract to be their starting QB.

Some Bears fans are saying this won’t look so stupid if Trubisky turns out to become an elite quarterback. Doesn’t matter. He could be the second coming of Dan Marino wrapped in beer and bacon, The Bears still GAVE UP 3 draft picks they likely DIDN'T NEED TO GIVE UP to get him.

So,

For making a move so ridiculous, it probably even put a smile on Jay Cutler’s resting bitch face.

For being responsible for a 1st round draft shocker almost as surprising as learning ESPN still has any people left to cover it.*

And for squandering three picks and demonstrating the only way they could have looked like bigger idiots is if they had used that 2nd overall to choose Aaron Hernandez.

We are proud to name the Chicago Bears as this week’s Rick and Len Show…WEENIES OF THE WEEK.

(*Addendum: Speaking of the ESPN firings…they laid off about a 10th of their staff this week. What I find amazing about that is that 100 of the most talented people in sports broadcasting now have no jobs while and over at FOX, Joe Buck still has 3!)
