Should the Cubs and Sox make a trade?

Chicago Tribune writer Phil Rogers believes both the Cubs and the Sox need a major change to shake things up after just one championship in the city of Chicago since 1917. His proposal? To swap GMs, sending Kenny Williams to the North Side and Jim Hendry to the Sox.

Rogers even went on to suggest the teams swap players as well, including the Cubs sending Carlos Zambrano, Kosuke Fukudome, Jeff Samardzija, Geovany Soto, Randy Wells and Chris Archer to the Sox for Jake Peavy, Gavin Floyd, Mark Teahen, Scott Linebrink and Tyler Flowers.

As Rogers says, "this plan is crazy, for sure, but no crazier than letting either Chicago team continue on its current path." (Chicago Tribune)

Marshall remorseful after Thursday night antics

Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall had quite the connection when both were teammates with the Denver Broncos, but both have since moved on to different teams. Their paths crossed again Thursday night in Miami, with Marshall's Dolphins squaring off against Cutler's Bears.

Both players play offense, so they were never on the field at the same time, but that didn't stop Marshall from taunting Cutler after making a catch near the sideline.

The day after the incident, Marshall called it a "boneheaded move" and regretted his actions. (NFL.com)
