I have been advocating acquiring one high rookie draft pick to start immediately. It is my preference to get one for the LG position because we do not have a LG. If they see an upgrade for Garza, that's fine too.
I do not see Edwin Williams as anything other than a backup caliber player. I imagine that he will be cut in the offseason by the new coaches.
I have not mentioned Spencer in any capacity since his contract is up and I do not see him being offered a new one.
This year is not about finding out if Cutler is going to be extended? Sorry, yes it is. If the Bears do not win this year, he is gone. You think his chances of winning increase by putting a bunch of rookie linemen in front of him? No, they don't. I don't even like rolling the dice with one rookie, but that's where we are
We have a first and a second round pick with no third rounder. Do you expect the Bears to use both of those picks on offensive linemen? If you do, you are just deluding yourself. If you don't, then at best you are looking at field a first and a fourth rounder on the line this year.
The Bears need to offer the best level of protection that they can this year. We have so many issues, from Louis probably not being ready to start week one to what the hell to do with Carimi, it seems foolish to compound our problems by removing functioning parts of the team. I've come to the expectation that Webb will be our starting LT in 2013. I don't know what is going to happen on the rest of the line.
What I do know is this: Starting two rookies on the offensive line in a season where you want to be competitive is foolish. Starting them right next to each other is suicide.
