    They're really not confident Chris Williams can handle all the return duties, are they?

    How do you expect me to read these posts when you have that avatar staring me straight in the grill lb?

    All I can think about is to delay the snap count as long as I can. Screw the delay of game penalty.

    Chris Williams is no sure thing and even if they're super confident, competition is great. I consider these Hixon replacements rather than proof of doubting CW.

    Bears "ink" two veteran kick returners



    Maybe she's not a vet this one is nicely inked. She's even equipped with her own padding.

    As fans were so used to the stopgap, plug up holes on a sinking ship with more signings type of GM mentality that we automatically assume that the reason The Bears acquire a player is automatically because they're replacing someone else.

    Phil Emery is doing what a successful GM should do. Which is, he's signing these players to create competition and depth at every position.

    Competition is a great thing because it keeps players hungry and playing their absolute best. It also gives us the opportunity to have solid backups everywhere on the field.

    If you're signing players like these two kick returners to replace someone else, chances are you're already screwed at said position. But that clearly isn't the case with the Bears.
