    The hippo was a locker room joke the team pulled on the media. :lol:

    With RB Cedric Benson struggling to break out, could the Bears make an offseason run at Chargers RB Michael Turner? Read what our NFL sources say about it in Whispers.

    http://www.profootballweekly.com/PFW/The Way We Hear It/Whispers/2007/whispers110207.htm

    While Bears GM Jerry Angelo continues to go out of his way to defend featured RB Cedric Benson and his lowly 3.1 yards-per-carry average, we’re starting to hear that the possibility of the team signing Chargers RB Michael Turner, a local kid who will be arguably the most attractive free-agent RB next offseason, could actually be more than just wishful thinking.

    At the time of that post, the UT had a Quarterbacks sub-section header that was one of those that appeared above the main thread discussion. That is what is meant by "down below" - ie, referencing a thread where someone said Brees was throwing too hard.

    It wasn't an article.
