Sort of a strange story published by the Associated Press, without any quotes. Perhaps it will be updated later.
But, the AP story on ESPN.com said that Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz said his unit would only need one day to prepare for the Hall of Fame game Aug. 7 against the St. Louis Rams.
I’m not sure whether that’s a reflection of how insignificant that game is or a reflection of Martz’s unending glass-half full mindset.
The Bears and Rams were picked for the Hall of Fame game, which means they’ll have to play five in the preseason.
The Bears are scheduled to open training camp at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Ill., at the end of next week.
