Don't worry it is just Zero being Zero.. nothing more.. defending his stance.

But apparently I am just a bias Barnett hater... yeah that must be it. Laughing

Maybe he needs to write in blood or something.. maybe go a little Favre. Laughing

Entertainment at the finest.

the fact that him and bishop both tried out makes me think he wont be to great there , because from what i saw of bishop....... the guy is crap , if Hawk was a naterual at MLB bishop wouldn't have even got a look in

You can act like you aren't judging that from one play, but you really know that you are.

Who cares what Barnett says? He takes a lot of pride playing MLB, so it's fine that he's taken ownership of the position. But he loves playing football, period, and if he got switched to the outside he would keep playing hard. Remember how Lance Briggs said he would never play for the Bears again because of his contract? A lot of these guys are just big mouths. Show them the money and they will play.

Like some others here, I'm intrigued by the thought of Hawk playing inside and Barnett outside next season, if Hawk excels in the middle. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. Barnett plays MLB because his speed allows him to play sideline to sideline. The drawback is that he's vulnerable to runs up the middle. He's like Brian Urlacher that way. Let's see if the Bears offense tries to exploit the edges today, as Hawk may not be as quick to get over there as Barnett was.

" said: Go to Quoted Post
This is the story I remember.. doesn't sound like a relationship with the Packers would continue, "Lets talk about my future here", more so than willing to move to make the team better... in a contract year.. I understand.

http://www2.jsonline.com...ory/index.aspx?id=481846



Quote:
[size=18]Barnett was adamant that he doesn't want to play anywhere other than middle linebacker[/size], where he has started all but one game over the last three seasons since being drafted with the 29th pick in the first round.

"The only position that I would give 10% thought to is Will (weak-side linebacker)," he said. "But that's not going to happen because we got A.J. (Hawk) at the Will. Honestly, I'd be successful at whatever position they put me in. But I've grown to love that position (Mike)."



Quote:
"I'm balling," Barnett said. "I'm the leader of this team. I'm playing Mike, man. Coach (Mike) McCarthy hasn't come to me to ask me to move. I don't think it will happen. But if you're going to move to Sam after three years in a row let's talk about the future - not just about that position but my future here."



Gosh its funny how one can read a quote with bias so it fits their theory. Maybe I should try that sometime. Wait, no, I prefer being objective and will continue to take HIS word as concrete. But go ahead and take his comments any which way you want. Just forget about the context of them and the constant barrage of comments saying he should move to the outside in favor of Hodge at MLB. Because I'm sure he's never told anyone that he was a little ticked off by someone coming in and potentially taking his position away. NAH!!! Let's jus take an excerpt and add some flavor to it.


Ticked off or not, the implication of that 2nd quote is rather obvious. Unless the context behind his quote is "Hey Nick, tell us a joke!", then there's not much else that needs to be said about that. You don't always need a 3 page article of context because that 2nd quote says all it needs to.

The real issue is whether he still believes that, which is debatable and probably only known to him.

Hawk looks great. So far he's been where he is supposed to be. Barnett getting hurt may have been a good thing for us.

We're really using the full house backfield in the run game. I love it.

I didn't get to see the game (yet) but I heard most of it on the radio. I hope Hawk keeps up the good work. When Nick comes back, I hope McCarthy has the good sense (and balls) to put him at Will.

Well after watching for how he did, I would say he played better than I thought he would, albeit they played a ton of snaps with nickel package and he didn't play a ton at a conventional middle spot.

Little more fire than you normally see from the monotone Hawk.

Hawk played very well.

Ever since I first saw a picture of the guy, I thought he had the face of a guy that just did the 100 Yard dash in a 50 Yard Gymnasium.

Today he played that way. He seemed to go all out.

Well Done A.J.
