Report: Bears, Rams won't start camp on time

In Tuesday’s Daily Shoutout, CBSSports.com’s Mike Freeman reported that “free agency will begin slightly later than generally known and training camps will also be delayed.”

So, today's news came as no surprise when ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Bears and Rams won’t report to camp on time and that their arrival “will be pushed back a few days.”

That news suggests that the Aug. 7 Hall of Fame game between the two squads in Canton, Ohio -- while “officially” still on -- likely will become a lockout casualty and will have to be canceled (even though Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz says he’d need only one day to prepare his squad).
 
But hey, if I had told you when the lockout first hit that the 2011 season would be saved but that one preseason exhibition game would have to be sacrificed, I’m sure you would have been just fine with that arrangement.

Report: Bears, Rams won't start camp on time

Ah, the selective "reporting" of the microwave media. If anyone bothers to listen to the Martz interview (clearly no one at this rag has, or no one cares about silly things like context), he was responsing to a question asked of him. His clear intent was to say that the game could be played in a day, which is completely correct. It would be possible to throw 11 guys into a huddle and call plays, results be damned. He was not brashly stating that he only needs one day to get his offense ready to conquer the world. Not that a third-rate journalist at a second-rate site cares about anything other than neon lights and shiny objects.
