Jeff Blake wants to return to the Bears, but the interest doesn't appear to be mutual.
Blake said most teams, "Have a starter and then they have a young guy behind him, and as soon as the starter goes down, they call one of us. They get someone they know can play. Why don't they just have us in the first place?'' Tue, Mar 21, 2006 09:09:00 AM

Jeff Blake went 7-for-8 for 44 yards and a touchdown against Minnesota in week 17.

Blake won't likely be back in Chi-town next season, but could find himself as an emergency quarterback in a different uniform. He still does throw one of the prettiest deep balls in the game.

Now that he's third on the team's depth chart, QB Jeff Blake is resigned to the fact that he isn't going to play.

"There is nothing I can do about that,'' Blake said. "In situations like this, I just keep my mouth shut and play. I don't talk about things I can't control. I wasn't even supposed to be here in the first place. I could be at home right now, so I am just happy they gave me a chance to be here.''

QB Jeff Blake is expected to get reps with the first-team offense this week, but the Bears insist QB Kyle Orton's job is not in danger after throwing five interceptions in Week 3.

''We're going back to training camp,'' coach Lovie Smith said. ''We're going to make our football team better this week.''

Jeff Blake is listed as questionable for Saturday's preseason game.

Blake was signed earlier this week after Rex Grossman suffered a possible season-ending injury. Chad Hutchinson will be the Week 1 starter, but Blake and rookie Kyle Orton will compete for the backup duties.

Bears signed QB Jeff Blake.

Cardinals released quarterback Jeff Blake.

The Cardinals terminated the final two years on the three-year, $7.5 million contract Blake signed last March. "Josh McCown is our starting quarterback, so we felt it is in Jeff's best interests to release him now to give him the opportunity to catch on with another team," new Cardinals coach Dennis Green said. After a disappointing season in Arizona, Blake doesn't figure to be considered for anything more than a backup job in 2004.
