    I just need to say that I'm relieved that Michael Bennett decided to stay with the Seahawks for less years and money than the Bears were offering. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I didn't want him.

    Why am I relieved? Because this forces Emery to build the defense the "right way".

    I.E. Fill spots with multiple lower tier guys and hit your home runs in the draft. This is precisely how the good teams do it.

    When was the last time you saw a team that tried to hit a home run in free agency make it to/win the Super Bowl? That's right you didn't.

    I'd love to see the Bears go after players a tier or two lower like Raiders' Lamarr Houston , Lions' Willie Young, Panthers' Mike Mitchell, and Giants' Ryan Mundy and then draft well this year. This is how top teams win championships.

    I'll just take a couple of hungry dogs man. I like the idea of Houston...we'll see what Emery has up his sleeve today.

    exactly what we need, young and hungry. our D last season was old and broken. we have enough experence already, jennings, ratliff, d.j. (probably), maybe pnut and that is that. we need hungry bears

    I could not agree more. We don't necessarily need the what are considered the "top free agents" we just need to get younger and hungrier.

    Being able to stop the run again is essential especially in our division with the likes of Lacy, Peterson, and Bush.

    I hope thats the case, but how FA will likely pan out, we will be putting alot of stock into how well Emery can draft. He has been hit or miss so far, so hopefully this may we can add key players via draft. And I also agree we MUST be able to stop the run, if we can't do that it wont matter who we get or dont get.

    for now, there are absolutely no reason to believe we will strike out in FA, last year was pretty decent

    How is that possible to like the Cubs and White Sox? You gotta choose, man.

    I'll give you a hint.

    I agree with this as well.

    We have the vets, they'll be key in helping the development of the rookies we draft.
