    I've read on a few places that Tillman to Tampa is done, as soon as Revis is unloaded. Hope not, but that would really suck.

    No, read it on another forum: XM Radio(NFL Channel) and this guy was being interviewed saying Tillman to Tampa is basically done.
    Could see that happening

    Well if it happens it happens. Obviously we would know that Tillman would rather play for Lovie than finish out his career a Bear.

    It will be interesting to see who all ends up in Tampa. Lovie putting the band back together, but all the instruments are older, beat up and going out of tune. Those of us that were critical of Lovie are openly grinning if these reports have any merit.

    I would love Peanut to stay and I think he has at least one more year left, but I wouldn't bet much on anything longer than that.

    Or, more likely, Tampa is throwing around silly money that is way more than anyone else would give, and he has no problem losing for a few years just to get an extra several million dollars.

    Maybe this is for the better, although I'll sure miss Peanut. If we're going to gut the defense and rebuild with youth, then let's get it over with - take our initial lumps - and go on. In the long run it may be for the best.

    Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if most Bears landed in Tampa
