Training camp and preseason mean crap until the season starts and then the real hittting starts. I never follow either and I only judge the players on the field when the games count. As for the eagles I used them as an example of loading up and trading players away to build what was suppose to be an elite team only to have them fall on their face. I have seen this happen to good teams and teams that bring in studs only to have them turn in to duds when they play for a different team.
I will say I like what this GM is doing about addressing issued numbnutz neglected for a couple of years. I give him a lot of credit but I think he needs to get rid of lovie and bring in his own people.
The '05-'06 team was not a great all around team. Team had no QB and the Wrs really weren't that great. Solid sure but they don't compare to what we have now. Grossman and Orton were absolute duds at the most important position. Not even Orton's fault since he was just a rookie. You put Cutler on that '05-'06 team and we have at least 1 SB win.
You are 100% right about training camp not meaning crap as far as how our season will go. But I do enjoy it every year, and get excited about seeing Bears football come back to life again for another season. Life is good again

Trestman - Kromer - Tucker - DeCamillis
I'm looking forward to seeing these guys coach. Hope they're good.
Good article, but hope he is wrong about Shea not ever amounting to more than just a solid player. I'd like to see someone that worries opponents on both ends. All I can say about that is I hope he is wrong. He said some good things about the WR's and Cutler. I think everyone knows that Cutler is a good QB, and I think most of us see the WR potential in the same way.
