    Exactly!
    This sure isn't your "Jerry Angelo Bears" !
    I wonder what the "Anglers" reaction to this move will be?
    :D

    Lmaooooo....have to agree with the picture, Emery has done it again......he fixed the O-line and now he's fixing the D-line, provided we stay healthy this year I believe the Bears are strong contenders for the superbowl.

    Wow, I'm shocked and stunned (in a good way). Didn't think we had a snowball's chance at getting him. This is about the only signing I could see that would justify doing the Cutler contract conversion from two days ago.

    If Emery lands Donald at #14, the DL went from pathetic-bad last year to SICK-DAMN-GOOD very quickly. That would be a sweet mix of elite vets who are still have some gas left (Allen, Ratliff), very young up-and-comers (Donald, Bass), with a core in the middle of quality guys in their late-20s prime (Houston, Young, Paea, Collins). Wow, what a turnaround that would be.

    I still want Emery to draft Donald in the 1st because I see him as the best difference maker on D who will likely be available there. And a great building block for the future. But......if Phil decides to go LB or DB instead, I can't blame him anymore. He's done enough in FA to make the DL respectable. Add in one piece from the draft and it could be SCARY GOOD really soon.

    Those are very nice stats, like night and day......not to mention both players having played the same amount of games, really says a lot.

    True, Emery is far more aggressive than JA ever dreamed of. I also think Emery has grown a lot from last year to this as far as his approach goes. Last year we had a lot of journeyman or rookies starting and lacked impact players due to injuries and a lack of quality depth. This year he went out and got impact players and upgraded the depth tremendously. Even his bottom rung signings have NFL experience under their belts and we have a lot better mix of youth and vets across the board. The Bears legacy has been built on defense. He's doing what he can to restore that and I give him the credit for it he deserves.

    The really noticeable difference comes in sacks and pressures. Allen's ratio per snap is much higher. Of course he got to face JWebb twice a year for two years so he gained some advantage there didn't he. :bouncesm:
