What do we need more, a WR or CB?
In light of not drafting either (not saying we HAD to, just sayin'), what position needs addressed more urgently in FA than the other? I don't think anyone's going to argue that neither one needs to be upgraded, and honestly a decent pickup at either would be greatly warranted, but I think the WR position needs to be addressed in FA moreso, for the following reasons: With it being a universal known that the better the D-line is, the less need you have for world beaters at CB. We have an excellent d-line, which should only get better, with Wooton hitting his second year and Idonije playing his second year as a true DE. With the potential of pressure in the middle much higher than it was last year, that would seemingly take pressure off of the ends, and allow for a better blitz.
The WR's must improve, because, despite the Carimi signing, and even if we get a good FA guard, the o-line is by no means going to be "fixed" and with a plethora of good DT's and DE's (I'm sure Jared Allen will have a bounce back year, after the williams sisters are reinstated), so we need someone that can adjust quickly to a rushed Cutler, and Knox has shown he tends to cause interceptions, and Hester is not even a number 2 guy. Only Bennett seems to have the ability to make the clutch catch, and Olsen comes and goes. I think getting an experienced WR would make the offense a lot smoother (and better than 30th ranked) machine.
Maybe it's a non-issue, but does anyone think the Bears should get a CB instead of a WR (saying we don't get both)?
