Here’s why the Bears should seriously consider U.S. women’s national team legend and Sky Blue FC midfielder/forward Carli Lloyd.
The Bears should give Lloyd a tryout and if all goes well, they should let her kick in a preseason game and if all goes well again, they should consider letting her kick in a game that matters. This isn’t a joke. It could be the Bears’ version of the fake Hollywood movie that Ben Affleck created. I think it could be their best bad idea … by far.
Lloyd didn’t materialize as a viable option until Tuesday when
The field goal didn’t necessarily come from an impressive distance, but the kick was impressive nonetheless given Lloyd’s inexperience with kicking footballs (she did go up against Vince Wilfork in a kicking competition a few years ago, as documented on “Hard Knocks”).
For those who don’t know, soccer balls are not shaped like footballs.
