    The Bears have had a recent history of doing well with defensive linemen whose names I cannot pronounce on the first try. We should give a few of them a call.

    Just read that per Brad Briggs Emery is trying to make a trade, unsuccessfully, to trade for a DT.

    Picks or players or both I wonder.

    If they don't want to fix this in the off-season, through the draft, then I don't know what else they can do. The FA guys sitting home on the couch are not going to fix our problem. I'm not saying we SHOULD do this. Only if we're serious about winning something significant this season, like getting to the playoffs. The guys we have on the roster now are not going to get it done.

    I don't want to see him mortgage our future. I'm not sure that anyone that a team would trade would make all that big a difference at this point.

    I have never seen him moving as fast as he is in that photo.

    Ever get the feeling that the strength and conditioning coach of the DL is not Marinelli ?

    Ive begun to wonder this myself. On a side note i havent heard about any trades but man i have to agree i dont like us mortgaging our future picks on someone at this moment. At this point in time i would like us to possibly talk to and go after the following...

    Richard Seymour - If the price is right or better yet if you can talk him into playing with Peppers and the rest on a discount and reward him in bonuses then i think he would be the best option
    Tommie Harris - played the 3 point tech, and maybe we can get him back to basics, hes a low risk high reward. Again he could be cheaper then Seymour and have a better bonus incentive
    Sione Po'uha - a 3-4 guy, a little on the older side but man can he stuff the middle and help our linebackers roam free a bit

    Outside of this Im not sure who else is really out there, I think we need to go back to Jauron's 4-3, we need a couple of huge fat asses in the middle to bum rush the QB and allow the LB's and the secondary to roam like hungry wolves

    Exactly. If this team had a legit shot at a deep playoff run then I'd be all for a trade of some sort. Then again I'd be afraid if Emery drafted another McC . :eek:

    I agree, that if we spent money on Seymour, that it's an incentive contact with bonuses. The guy is 34 years old and out of football. I wouldn't "sell the farm" to bring in a guy who may not be any better than the deadbeats we already have. The reason no NFL team has signed him & the reason he's home sitting on the couch right now, may not be related to money. He may be "done" in the NFL.

    MP, I have no idea who they were looking at trading for or 2, but it doesn't matter b/c Biggs stated it was unsuccsesfull, at least to that point.

    I wouldn't call a trade, depending on who and what we gave up, mortaging the future necessarily. Again I think this goes back to you don't find quality DT's on the streets, and apparently no team is so deep that they feel the need to give one up.

    Several teams including the Lions have tried to sign him but he DOES want too much money. He played at a high level in Oakland last year but they are in "Cap Hell" and couldn't afford to bring him back.

    It sounds a bit like our Urlacher situation. Old guy who thinks he's worth more money than any NFL team is willing to pay.

    Yeah, Seymour isn't coming to Chicago. Wants too much money for his age. He made $15 million last year, and if he were still in his mid 20's, I'd be on board to get him, but not at this point.
