    Tillman, Briggs, Peppers, and Jennings are all old. We need to win now.

    Even though Emery has only been here for 20 months or so, I can already see that he is being proactive and bringing in a nice mix of young players & vets, to replenish the talent pipeline. I don't worry about us reverting back to the old Jerry Angelo "crisis mode" way of doing things, where we have the overall talent on the team atrophy to a critical point. Yes, we have aging stars. But Emery looks like he'll have the talent weapons in place to simply "reload" and keep firing.

    With Emery & Trestman, the window will remain open, to a steady stream of young talent, to replace the old, injured or even players who leave the team to go elsewhere. In fact, I believe we will have our overall level of talent sustained at an all time high. Sure, there will be an ebb and flow over the years (even the elite franchises have some mediocre years), but I see a "sustainability" template in place now that Phil is here. This will result in the Bears becoming an elite franchise in the modern super bowl era.

    It sure feels good too.

    Well they need to bring in young STUDS. Going to need someone who replaces Peppers level ( good luck) and Briggs and peanut will be hard to get too. Or is it going to be solid but not great players across the board?

    Those three will not be replaced easily. We would have to have another 2013 draft success story.

    I am guessing that is a big no then.

    25% of draft picks stay with their teams.

    Free agency can resolve -- and create -- a lot of problems. A lot of very good -- even Pro-Bowl quality players -- change uniforms every year. Heck,we got M. Bennett and Bushrod to fix our OL problem just this year. Best CB in NFL went to Tampa. When Peppers goes, it frees up a lot of money to shop for his replacement.
