Yes, I agree 100%. The Bears are done. Not sure about Lovie Smith though. He’s signed through 2011.
Milton Bradley will be gone come April. The Ritters are fans first and there’s no way they want to start the season getting hassled about that loser.
I think the story of Tiger Woods is a little off. Why would he have lost consciousness (for six minutes) after hitting a fire hydrant and then a tree if he was just pulling out of his driveway? And why would his wife have to break a window to extricate him? And where was he going at that time?
The tree had a scuff mark and the airbags had not deployed so one would think it was a low speed impact and yet it was loud enough for his wife to hear it from inside. His injuries evidently were just about his mouth. Did he hit it on the steering wheel? Did he have a seizure and bite his tongue? No idea.
Police say alcohol was not involved and that the accident “remains under investigation and charges could be filed.”

Fire hydrant presumably bottom left where the striped horses are and the tree he hit is to the right with a tire mark in the mulch/dirt but no severe damage to the trunk.
Only one tire track.

CNN [emphasis added]:
The single-vehicle accident occurred about 2:25 a.m. in Windermere, a suburb of Orlando, according to police. Woods pulled out of his driveway in a 2009 Cadillac SUV and struck a fire hydrant and then a tree, according to an incident report from the Florida Highway Patrol in Orange County.
Chief Daniel Saylor said Windermere police found Woods on the ground in front of his vehicle. Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren, was with him. She told police she used a golf club to break the vehicle’s rear window in order to get Woods out, he said.
Woods was semi-conscious and tried to get up, but police made sure he stayed on the ground until Orange County fire and rescue arrived about 10 minutes later, he said.
An officer on the scene said Woods’ only visible injuries were cuts to his upper and lower lips and blood in his mouth, Saylor said.
From Health Central Hospital and Tiger’s Woods’ office: Tiger Woods was in a minor car accident outside his home last night.
He was admitted, treated and released today in good condition.
We appreciate very much everyone’s thoughts and well.
Windermere Police Chief DANIEL SAYLOR told the AP:
[Elin] was frantic, upset. It was her husband laying on the ground.
She supposedly got him out and laid him on the ground. He was in and out of consciousness when my guys got there.
He was mumbling, but didn’t say anything coherent.
Was it a domestic disturbance?
Patrol spokesman Sgt. KIM MONTES:
Right now we believe this is a traffic crash. We don’t believe it is domestic issue.
