    I certainly hope not. His best season coincided with the only really amazing season Suh had, making it very likely he was benefiting from the amazing play from the rest of the line. Besides, wasn't it Wooten that the Bears have been trying to hype up to fill his shoes? (granted, he's probably not going to get any DT time like Peppers, but with the Bears willing to use the NASCAR package, nothing should be surprising)

    I noticed that, too. All through the NFL.

    Lack of hitting has nothing to do with calf strains and knee issues.

    Izzy didn't even have a decent season on D until he was 28, and Turk provided the same LE/UT versatility. He was going to be that ST mercenary and gameday depth filler.

    Could it be a conditioning problem?

    Thats the only thing I can think. If we see a lot of injuries in the PS games then I would think that it was a lack of hitting.

    What's with these calf injuries? First Bushrod and now Williams and in DJ's case it isn't mild if they expect him to miss a couple of weeks. Well now Bostic gets his chance let's see what he can do with it.

    Sounds like they've been using Wootton in that role and he's looked good doing it. That kid could be a real stud if he can stay healthy.

    So we don't sign Izzy who was never injured and a great team player who really amped up his game these last few years and instead we sign McBride who is now history with leg injury and Ellis pussy's out right before camp. Smooth moves there Phil. :rolleyes: They're replaceable but I don't believe either would have been as useful as Izzy. We're still thin on that DLine.

    By all reports the DL is looking very strong w/Wootton's ability to play DE and DT. I also heard last night on ESPN radio that Peae says he's bigger and faster then ever; and they said he looks near impossible to move off the line. Add Shea for depth and the young guys and I think we'll be fine there.

    Much like BU what makes you think Izzy wanted to come back? Sure he could have said he did like BU did, but that doesn't mean he wanted to or would have signed the same contract from Det if offered by Chicago...like BU said.

    Time to move on Soul, this is not your dad's Chicago Bears.
