Offensive Playa Of The Weak

matt forte 9 16 Offensive Playa Of The Weak

Jay Cutler is making headlines by cavorting around the country with reality-TV “personality” Kristin Cavallari, living the life of a rich, single NFL QB.  Nothing wrong with bimbo-wrangling, as long as it doesn’t affect your preparation for the next game.

But there is something wrong with what Matt Forte tried to get away with.

According to today’s Sun Times, Forte got engaged to Danielle Daniels in splashy fashion — giving her a big diamond at a Trump Hotel promo event, then flying to Louisiana to celebrate.  Later, her parents hosted an engagement party at LuxBar and were planning a glamorous wedding for next year.

But then came Tuesday, when Forte finally informed Daniels that his former girlfriend is seven months pregnant with his kid.  Lovely, huh?

To Daniels’s credit, she broke everything off completely.

But as long as Forte and Cutler can keep their on-field relationship healthy, none of this matters a bit.  It’s Cutler’s lack of connection with Devin Hester that came up at Halas Hall yesterday, however, and it is the subject of more media scrutiny today.

One game is just that, and the conclusions drawn are likely to be wrong.  Still, Mike Martz tipped his hand right after getting the job when he said that Hester was the Az Hakim of the team — best suited for the tertiary role as slot guy rather than trying to make him the Isaac Bruce or Torry Holt.  That lasted until the Bears told Martz what they paid Hester and what they said about him.  And Cutler’s initial take: “If Devin would have gotten open, I would have thrown him the ball” is worthy of a raised eyebrow.

Brian Billick joins us at 3:00.  Zach Zaidman reports from Halas Hall as we await the injury update from Dallas on DeMarcus Ware.  We will do “Who You Crappin?” at 5:00 and the Second Half at 3:30.

News on the ongoing federal probe of Lance Armstrong is twofold:  the (probably illegal) tape of a phone call by Greg LeMond has been obtained by prosecutors.  In it, a former Armstrong associate admits hearing him tell doctors about his use of PEDs.  Also, the French anti-doping agency is ready to hand over Lance’s urine sample from the 1999 Tour de France — the one that tested positive for EPO.  Getting interesting.

    forget demarcus ware, that guy will play, we all know that, it’s the injury status of Mark Columbo that i am interested in/hoping for. I got on my knees last night and prayed to God that we see one big hopping dose of Alex Barron sunday afternoon. That guy SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS!!! I would move Peppers to that side and let him go crazy!!! Flag! holding, alex barron, had peppers around the neck, ten yards, still second down!!! that could be a tune we enjoy all day long!!!

    on the satelitte radio or whatever it is that plays music in the building i work in, they just played an accapella almost barber shop quartette version of the theme song to my all time favoritist movie Goldfinger. I almost puked on my computer!!! If that station wants to play that Shirley Bassey belt out, than play the Shirley Bassey belt out, why play a cheap second rate attempt to alter the song?

    these people are……………………………………………………………………

    • Bob in San Diego

      I just heard an accapella version of the latest T.B. Diddlers song “Dip Dip Dippity Dongs”.

      • Beverly Brewmaster

        I love the acapella version. I believe it was the Larry Horse Experience that performed that one.


      B.T.S. I feel your pain. I revolted against piped in music often.
      Once, it was a “doo wop” acapella and “City of Angels” soundtrack that never got rotated out. YEESH!
      Inferior renditions of songs are just awful:
      Jose Feliciano’s “Light My Fire,”
      That “Into My Life,” by. . .the Bee Gees?
      Hang in there,
      and here’s hoping no one finds ten year old urine samples of any of us. No no way that hasn’t been compromised.

    Okay, let’s get a timeline together…

    The Trib actually reported the engagement back in May (27th).

    Tuesday the engagement is reported as broken because his ex is 7 months pregnant with his kid, which would mean he knocked her up February-ish.

    What the heck is Forte doing getting engaged to another woman, when he had obviously been in a relationship with another woman three months prior?

    Dude, you’re a PRO ATHLETE. Go out, get ’em while you’re still at your individual marketing peak, forget their names -if you ever catch them in the first place, blow them off, and “On to the Next One”… Just be safe.

    Getting one woman pregnant and engaged to another before the end of the first trimester is a sign that he’s not quite understanding the power of his celebrity.

      another example of why charles barkley was soooooooooooo correct when he said,”athelete’s are not role models” of course the other part of that was “parents are role models” but look
      tiger woods- two kids, not a role model
      michael jordan- three kids, not a role model
      matt forte- one on the way, not a role model
      shawn kemp- half the children population of seattle- definatly not a role model
      brian urlacher- one child-not a role model

      so maybe charles barkely should ammend his statement. atheletes are not role models, parents should be role model’s assuming your dad isn’t schtooking with the secretary but athletes who are also parents, they should look up to grandma and grand pa
      unless of course your lebron’s kid, lebron’s grandmother, had an affair with delonte west, that’s not even in the vacinity of rolemodelhood
      so who should be the role model? jesse jackson, oh wait, he has a child out of wed lock. maybe we should have a new curriculum at school, COMMON SENSE. Start from first grade and make it mandatory all the way through 12th grade. then we might not need role models

      • bigtime sucker

        i meant lebron’s mother

    It’s not QOTY material, but it may be my favorite regarding the Bears season thus far.

  • merklesboner

    Apparently, Bears LBs have some competition on the baby making front from Bears RBs!

  • Chi Orphan

    Oh so right, Dan. (1) Inadmissible hearsay evidence for which no exclusion or exception applies under the federal rules of evidence and (2) an 11 year old piss sample that the French have undoubtebly aged into a fine cognac. Well, maybe not, but nevertheless, the French would have stripped him of his ’99 win if they could have with that piss.

    that story on Forte was priceless!! He probably thought it the money would gloss over the character flaws. While many times the eye can be turned away, there are actually people that stick to their beliefs in demanding character. Hear that Kenny Williams? What baffles me is why these guys get married in the first place? Maybe the headline should have been “tales of Dumb and Dumber”?

  • Chris in Scottsdale

    The Forte story has been picked up by Deadspin. Uh-oh…

    • meesohawnee

      I hope Deadspin points out to these two that money appreciates,beauty depreciates.. Simple algorithm huh?

    • Chet's Inflated Ego

      I wonder if Forte got in on his fourth try???

  • Tim

    I actually love Cutler’s honesty about Hester. I don’t think it’s exactly “worthy of a raised eyebrow”. If anything, it should light a fire under his rear. Neither Hester, nor anyone else on the roster, should have a problem with that statement. Jay didn’t call him out to the press with something like, “I don’t know what his problem is, he needs to get open, or get off the field, seriously.” He just stated a rather obvious fact…if he’s open (which doesn’t necessarily emphasize Hester’s lack of talent and/or effort in getting open) he’ll have a much better chance at being targeted. Period.

    Congrats to Q on his contract extrension with The Hawks.

      after four months away I still can’t type or proof-read!!!


    From a strictly entertainment angle, it may appear as if Bears’ QB Jay Cutler and former MTV reality star Kristin Cavallari are getting a lot more comfortable together with all the reports I’ve read about the two since they supposedly hooked up after the third Bears’ preseason game vs. the Cardinals last month That being said, I’m not so sure those two are as serious as the rumors & speculation would like us to believe. I think the next part of this story is whether Kristin shows up at a Bears’ game sporting Jay’s #6 jersey in a luxury box and is spotted on camera in the process. I know the TMZs, RadarOnlines, and the celebrity news shows such as “Entertainment Tonight”, “Access Hollywood” & “Extra” would have a field day with it…

    • bigtime sucker

      hey, maybe this is a good thing, because you can’t have a relationship like that, have all that exposure put on you from all those non-sports venue’s and throw 4 picks. You do that, then that relationship evaporates because a) why would a chick like her, who is undeniably snobby and fickle be in love with a guy who sucks, she is definatly the type that would break up with an athelte whose performance is “embaracing” her and b)everyone and their momma would say,”he should spend more time reading the playbook and not with her…….” blah blah blah

    • meesohawnee

      what i dont understand is why am i even suppose to care who cutler is pokin in the panties?? who cares
