Bears Highest Paid Bad OL
I found this on another site.
Compare the playoff teams
Team - Sacks given up - O-Line compensation
Bears - 56 - $20.06MM
Packers - 38 - $11.88MM
Eagles - 50 - $18.7MM
Saints - 22 - $13.94MM
Falcons - 23 - $11.2MM
Seahawks - 35 - $12.38MM
Steelers - 43 - $11.5MM
Jets - 28 - $9.5MM
Ravens - 40 - $10.38MM
Colts - 16 - $13.51MM
Pats - 25 - $11.39MM
Chiefs - 32 - $13.51MM
Sources: Fanhouse.com for regular season sacks given up and yahoosports for the roster/comp data.
This data is damning. We pay the most for our line and get the worst performance. Maybe the compensation data is bad on yahoo, but every team has roughly the same numbers but the Bears. Sure the line improved, but I think they still pretty much sucked at the end of the year.
This is all on Jerry Angelo. Horrible price/performance = bad managment. What do you think?
Am I missing something? Give Cutler protection and none of this BS on the Board is an issue and we are in the Superbowl! *** JA?

The Jets $ is surprising since there are a few high picks along their line. How much of Bears $ is Omiyale? lol.
Arguing on the internet is like winning the special olympics, even if you win your still messed up.
Restore the roar!
How are the Jets that low? I thought Mangold had like a $9M/season deal and D'Brickashaw had a good deal too.
I don't know the real numbers, but I doubt that what is there is correct for the Bears. Think about it, they have Webb who is a late round draft pick (near minimum), Garza isn't pricey, Omiyale isn't pricey. They only ones who might have some bucks (and I'd argue the real bucks are already paid out) is Williams (1st rounder on original deal) and Kreutz (nice, though not huge, resign from a few year back).
That might be cap hit data, which isn't actual money paid out (includes prorated bonuses).
Winston Churchill: "Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak."
"If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain."
Did a little digging:
Omiyale got paid 6.3M this year...
Chris Williams got paid 5.9M, which makes sense for a first round OL
They might be wrong about Nick Mangold's numbers, they list him as 700k, but his extension has him averaging 7M a year...so that doesnt add up, might be typo
We could have had the lowest payroll and the most sacks and I'd still be upset at the OL

/27/2009: Signed a four-year, $11.5 million contract. The deal contains $5.5 million guaranteed, including a $1.8 million signing bonus and a first-year roster bonus of $3.7 million. Another $2.5 million is available through playing-time incentives. $250,000 workout bonuses can be earned in years two through four. 2011-2012: $1.6 million, 2013: Free Agent
chris willams made $740,000 in 2010 not 5.9 million( his big money in 2008 not 2010).. so just those 2 moves the number to 10 million from 20 million FWIW
/23/2008: Signed a five-year, $12.73 million contract. The deal contains $9.2 million guaranteed, including a $500,000 signing bonus, a $1.126 million first-year roster bonus, and a $5.565 million option bonus. Another $3.27 million is available through incentives, including an annual Pro Bowl escalator of $175,000 and a $2.125 million play-time incentive in the final year. 2010: $740,000, 2011: $1,095,250, 2012: $1 million (+ $284,750 workout bonus), 2013: Free Agent
Omiyale can go.
I still have hope for C. Williams.
Kruetz and Garza played well, but we need young guys for the fuuture.
Webb was my favorite of the year. he had ups and downs (something you expect from a rookie 7th rounder learning a complicated system but was given very little slack on) but proved he's gonna be a solid RT and we can all rest a bit easier knowing this guy is gonna keep improving.
