No!  It's a sad day for what should have been a great tight end in the NFL.

/ I feel sad.

Does he have Lisa Frank folders? This is important.

He has such a great show that first preseason game.  Sad, indeed.  I can't imagine how much it must suck to get ready to go and then miss an entire season.

As far as the division?  IF we stay healthy (I'm looking at you Cutty, Peanut), and get our special teams to stop being all clownshoes, then we have a chance.

I'd be bloody thrilled to make the playoffs this year.  They could lose the first game.  But playoff contention would be nice.  :)

I had a Lis Franc injury in high school.  Stress fractures and torn ligaments on all 5 of the metatarsals(?) in my foot.  It was farking terrible - I had surgery, spent about 18 months on crutches/walking boot, and took a total of 2 1/2 years to heal to the point I could return to activities.  And now some 10 years later I get aches and pains when the storms are rolling in.

The good news is that over that time frame I became the best Halo player on campus.

This sucks for him coming off a great first preseason game, but the Bears will move on without him.

I don't think they're anywhere near as popular as they were back in the 80s and 90s (and I spotted an article from last year saying the company was basically gone), but Lisa Frank is/was a brand marketed towards girls in the 4th-8th grade range that included trapper keepers, lunchboxes, folders, stickers, etc.
  The injury Miller suffered is a Lisfranc Injury, so Lisfrank=Lisa Frank = Trapper keepers via the transitive property, or something.

/Sounds like the company started falling apart in 2005 when Lisa Frank and her husband (who was CEO) divorced, and then there were a series of lawsuits over the next 4-5 year between various parties.

Good new is that Zach Miller will still be playing TE in the NFL this year. Just not for the Bears.

Nice... Thank you. I was alive and well in the Trapper Keeper phase, and now that I looked on a GIS, it would seem that I definitely remember those. I think most of mine were just plain colors. I may have had one with an Apache Helicopter on it, but that could be a false memory.

Kudos to you and the other farkers who got that one, seems pretty obscure, even knowing the story now.

There is also a Zach Miller who plays tight end for the SeaChickens. I admit, I was confused when I saw the news for a bit because I thought "When did he go to Chicago?"

Yes, we seahags have a Zach Miller...former pro bowler (in Oakland) on his last year.  Doesn't do anything but block for 16 regular season games, and then in 2 playoff games in 2 years, goes off for 40 catches with 23 TDs and 6,000 yards.

/do that, but in the regular season too

He's never mentioned in conversations about great tight ends, but I like him. And I agree, he seems like a reliable receiver most of the time, so I wish they'd throw to him more often. He is a good blocker, though. Finally, just because no one ever talks about the guy, I'll take this opportunity to share this picture of him from last year, in one of my favorite moments from the season.

I can't wait to see the excuses for Cutler after this year.

/also, maybe if this guy changed his name, he wouldn't have the injury problems
//there can be only one TE Zach Miller

Excuses for what? Other than their terrible O-line, what have the excuses been in the past?

It messed with me the other week when he had his big game; I wondered when the Bears got him from Seattle.

Did you even watch the preseason games? Weems was worthless in the two games he played. No catches on offense and multiple fumbles in the kick return game. Santonio has shown the capacity to make plays in the past and has greater upside in that regard. And if he sucks or is too much of a headache, he'll be gone once Marquess is ready to return.

I have watched preseason football, and am watching one now. HOWEVER, I only saw one partial Bears game, and there was a thread about how the satellite feed was all farked up in the first quarter, and I turned to another game when it went out. Haven't seen any other Bears work yet.

It's weird reading the papers and listening to sports reporters complain that the Bears "need a number 3 receiver to stay competitive". That's a completely new complaint as Farr as the Bears are concerned.

The obvious thing to complain about is a defense that doesn't resemble turnstiles (which I guess its fairly new to the Bears from a historical standpoint)

Oh, I figured you were paying more attention to the Bears. But yeah, long story short - Weems sucked tremendously.

This will probably be the best Bears offense I've seen in my lifetime, and yet... not super excited about this season.

Just have absolutely zero faith in the defense. The sort of season where bears will lose games 42-49.

Did Cutler bang some girl you were stalking or something? There's plenty of fark Cutler hate to go around but you seem to be the leader of the brigade.
