All this running, weightlifting and working out at the NFL Combine is making us ... very tired.
1. What are the Bears looking for at the NFL Combine?
|Clark Jones: Whoever uttered the words "draft Chris Conte."|
|Lisa Arnett: A player with impeccable fashion taste.|
|Scott Bolohan: Someone who can make them smile.|
|Bear Jordan: A babysitter for Jay Cutler's kids.|
|Angi Taylor: About 10 Lance Briggs clones.|
2. What test would you add for players at the NFL Combine?
|Clark Jones: A driving exam! A test to see how fast you can get Sam Hurd to a police station.|
|Lisa Arnett: Spin around on a bat 10 times and then do the 40-yard dash.|
|Scott Bolohan: Scantron drawing.|
|Bear Jordan: If you can outrun me, you automatically get an NFL contract.|
|Angi Taylor: Foot measurements! Am I right, ladies?!|
3. If Josh McCown signs with the N.Y. Jets instead of the Bears ...
|Clark Jones: ... somehow he will intercept Jay Cutler.|
|Lisa Arnett: ... I will shed a very, very small tear.|
|Scott Bolohan: ... Jay Cutler will get hurt.|
|Bear Jordan: ... he'll still never have to buy a drink when he's in Chicago.|
|Angi Taylor: ... Jay Cutler had better be protected better than the president.|
4. Make a prediction for the 2018 Winter Olympics.
|Clark Jones: Inner city viewership will rise sharply to 3 percent.|
|Lisa Arnett: Gracie Gold trains for the next four years and brings home her namesake medal.|
|Scott Bolohan: Every human will say, "Wait, it's cold enough in South Korea?"|
|Bear Jordan: Jonathan Toews will win another gold medal. After defecting to the United States.|
|Angi Taylor: Aja Evans wins gold, Johnny Weir co-hosts figure skating with new wife Bruce Jenner and #PyeongchangProblems blows up Twitter.|
5. The San Francisco Giants hired Barry Bonds as a special instructor. Discuss.
|Clark Jones: He's cream of the crop and will inject clear life into the program -- plus a bigger head.|
|Lisa Arnett: He'll get to spend his 50th birthday on the West Coast. Lucky!|
|Scott Bolohan: What's next? Someone hires the second best hitter ever?|
|Bear Jordan: Time for the Cubs to hire Sammy Sosa. Or just give up entirely.|
|Angi Taylor: For my steroid joke I'll go with: He gets discounts on Whizzinators.|
