Tommie Harris wants McNabb, or does he?

For those that don't know, Tommie Harris is a DT for the Chicago Bears. At a recent kids football clinic Harris gushed a bit too much about our #5...

Chicago Bears Pro Bowl defensive tackle Tommie Harris went overboard in his praise of McNabb. Bears quarterback Rex Grossman, super sensitive about his ability, can expect to be cross-examined when the news reaches the Windy City.

"Donovan is a great guy, he's a positive guy," Harris said. "And I'd love to have him as my quarterback in Chicago.

"I know if he comes to the Chicago Bears, we can win the Super Bowl. If he comes to Chicago, we can definitely win the Super Bowl."

It almost sounds like the TO-Favre situation in reserve for McNabb doesn't it?

He continued, but claimed he was joking.

He's my friend and I would like him to play on my team. ... I'd love him to play for the Bears."

He just kept going.

And Harris wasn't done, capping his comments with, "Hopefully we get Donovan."

Harris backtracked on Saturday on WSCR-AM 670, saying he was kidding and if incumbent starter Rex Grossman was offended, Harris would apologize.

It's more of a story for Bears fans, but I thought it was at least noteworthy. Bears Blog Windy City Gridiron had some thoughts about it.
