    Gotta love that 2nd stat more, b/c you know HE knows when to turn it on. The first stat bothers me a lilttle b/c it doesn't look at the other half of the factor which is the run game; although I have a feeling that they were all pretty bad at that, Shea being the worst.

    Knew this was happening yesterday after Culter's restructuring, but didn't want to get my own hopes up......so I suppressed the though.

    You know what is funny about this?
    Shea and Jared are Idaho guys... let hope the two can use some common ground to help in their professional relationship.

    Its like the NFC North is completely oblivious to other divisions in the league. "Other divisions? What other divisions?"

    Oh, that's bad for you. It can cause ulcers and lead to depression and substance abuse if there's any substances around here to abuse after Mo and Kegger get through with them. ;)

    Speaking of Motown, where in the hell is he? Did he leave us or is he just taking a sabbatical like I did?

    Well hopefully we will be talking about potatoes in a good way, not throwing at the bench.

    That's their opinion and they aren't 100% wrong but it's also being reported that he turned Seattle down because he wanted to be more than just a situational pass rusher behind Bennett and Avril. He wants to start and with the Bears he can do that. Houston will be far better used if he plays LDE and can slide into DT at times. Then we have Young to back Allen or Houston and Izzy who could also play LDE and DT provided he makes the roster and I believe he will.

    That's actually four new DEs this year plus we have Bass and Washington still learning the ropes and Lane and Scott competing with Izzy for that vet backup role. I guess Emery is gonna make damn sure he doesn't run out of quality DL this year. I seems like overkill now but the competition for those backup spots is gonna be intense. If Izzy can't cut it at least he gets to retire as a Bear. I like what he's done here by fixing the edge and only leaving one DT spot to fill.

    Cutler feels so relieved right now.
