Quote of the week
Chicago Bears wide receiver Devin Hester told Mike and Mike in the Morning he believes signing recently waived quarterback Donovan McNabb would be a "waste of time," NBC Sports reports.
"It's going to be tough right now to pick up a quarterback that hasn't played in the Mike Martz offense," Hester said. "This is a difficult offense to run, so as far as a quarterback who hasn't played in the offense, right now it's going to be a waste of time."
Forte may be back
Bears coach Lovie Smith said he expects star running back Matt Forte to return this season from a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee, but wouldn't put a timetable on Forte's return.
Upon further review
Who taught Cowboys coach Jason Garrett his clock management skills? Andy Reid?
On Monday Garrett stuck by his controversial decisions at the end of Sunday's loss to Arizona. Garrett chose not to call a timeout after getting a first down with about 25 seconds left, then did call one just as his kicker was trying a 49-yard field goal.
The Cowboys had two timeouts left when Dez Bryant was stopped at the Arizona 31 and could have run at least two plays to get closer. Instead, Tony Romo had to spike the ball to stop the clock and the field-goal unit rushed out.
Garrett said it came down to trusting kicker Dan Bailey.
The rookie had missed just one attempt all season before Sunday, but missed from 53 yards earlier and made a 50-yarder that hit an upright.
Naturally, he made the one that was nullified by the belatged Garrett timeout call.
And, after the time out, missed the second attempt.
"How 'bout those Cowboys!"
