At the time Yes. Today? No. I think Green Bay would have taken him at 26.
It's an upgrade over Haine.
At least Green Bay Tied and Detroit Loss today.
I'd like to see him gone NOW!
Hire Mike Singletary next year as DC. He could whip them into shape.
Trust me I like Long a LOT but what I was annoyed about was WHERE we took him. I thought he should have gone in the second round to be honest....
I really like him too but what he can't continue to do the dumbheaded penalty he got today.
Something has got to be wrong besides the injuries. He needs to go next year. We don't need Hot Rod back either.
Everyone but especially the Defense.
I think even if they bring back McCown they need to draft a QB. Why?
Easy this is one of the best QB drafts ever and this is a golden chance to...
We already gave 'em JaMarcus Webb. lol!
There are a number of places he could go to including Cleveland, Jacksonville, Minnesota, Tampa is a possibility etc.
With the way our Defense has been injured it maybe our only option.
Maybe Conte can stay as one of the back up's?
We'd be 5-11 or 4-12 with Lovie and Tice.
Gould NEEDS to be resigned.
I wouldn't be shocked if Boggs is our future C to be honest. Remember Kromer has a history to coaching up late round and UDFA's. I think Garza...
Agreed. They will FT him before that happens. Nor would it shock me to see the Saints draft a QB in the draft in 2014.
I wouldn't want Gabbert even as a back-up here in Chicago. I'd rather have Michael Bush play QB than Gabbert.
This is the way to do it. Build via the draft and sign some depth guys to help fill out the roster.
Would we even have the $$$$ for Chris Long that is the question.
^^^ Especially since we have zero depth behind him. I'd say if the Defense didn't need a rebuilt, I'd say draft a OT in the 5th or 6th round for...
Was this the longest delay of a game in Bears history????
I say at least try running it at least ONCE!
Agreed. Have I questioned Trestman's play calling at times? Yes. There are times I think he's too gutsy but other then that I think he's doing...
Bass for the pick six.
I think we need 2 new CB's one future start and one for depth.
No kidding! I don't Kaperneck is bad but he sure won't be a great one. He's good but not great.
Excellent post Henry! While yes would I take a healthy McCown over a not 100% Cutler? Yes but do I want McCown starting when we have a 100%...
If Lovie was the Coach we'd be 5-11 or 6-10 this year.
My guess is that Tim Jennings comes back because of this.
What's the harm in brining him in for a workout? Nothing. Might as well.
I am actually excited to see these two guys play and especially how well they have been. Do they need work? Yes but I think they will become two...
We need to draft a QB THIS YEAR! The 2014 QB class is very deep and is our best shot for one.
NO! NO! NO! NO!
NO! I wonder who goes down next. But seriously we freed up some $$$ to fix the Defense next year.
My guess is yes.
Most people I talked to at work last week DID NOT want Cutler to play at all. He should have waited for the Baltimore game.
Agreed. I wouldn't be shocked if the Packers finished third especially if Rodgers is out a while. As my boss said today "Our road to the playoffs...
No. I'd be okay with him staying one or two more years to mentor the new guy but 5 Years heck no!
Trestman. Several bad calls including not taking the 3 pts AND letting Cutler play.
This loss is on Trestman plain and simple. If it was me I wouldn't have let Cutler start and not gone for that 4th and 1.
Agreed. However Trestman didn't help either with going for it on 4 & 1 instead of just going for 3.
As a teacher once told me "You always go for the points no matter what early in the game. It may help you later on."
Yes I am concerned. I think he should have sat out one more week to be honest.
I hope when he retires someone picks him up as a member of their Coaching staff.
I wouldn't mind seeing Wright gone. Heck if I had my way we'd replace both of them or demote Conte to backup.
To be honest I think with Boggs on the roster he is our C of the future. Remember Kromer coached a bunch of low round draft picks in NO and made a...
Remember we also need a CB or two. Especially since it is likely that we will lose either Tillman or Jennings. Even if we CAN keep them they...
