    I'd like to see us keep Fiammetta as a FB but he just may be PS.

    It's a shame HH doesn't have the balls to finally move on from Hester. He's taking up a roster spot just for returning kicks. Are you kidding me?! -_-

    We all know that there are enough guys on the team that can return KOs and punts. EBennett, Weems, Ford just to name a few. Hell, even FS Tom Nelson was a KR in HS and college.

    The only TE on the roster I like is Bennett. The others are very mediocre players at best (Pope is the best of the mediocre TE's). It is tough to watch them practice and play because we clearly need better talent behind Bennett. If Bennett goes down to injury we're pretty screwed at TE. It makes me sick to think about, because the TE will be very important this year.....especially in a Trestman offense. We need to draft a guy who can catch the football.

    I actually feel pretty pumped about our WR's. I believe we have more talent there this year, than I've seen in 50 years of Bears football. I've never cared much for Weems, but I have to admit he's looked a notch better this year receiving - and he's a stud on ST's. He's better than in past years. No way he's getting cut.

    Wilson is amazing. I hoped he'd be a stud, but I also thought he'd be a very rough "project" this year. But he's amazing. He's not too far behind Alshon Jeffery (although he does need to bulk up over the off-season). Wilson is a lock to make the roster. He's our future (with Jeffery) at WR. Those two are the young guns we'll need in future years.

    Anderson is solid too. It would be a shame to see him get cut. So, B.Marsh, Alshon, Bennett, Wilson, Anderson & Weems. I can't see keeping DA. He's a very mediocre player with zero upside. I just don't see how he helps us much when we have exciting young players with tremendous upside. Also, I would love to see the 6'5" Tolliver make the practice squad. He's looked good receiving and as a gunner on ST's. He had one heck of a solid tackle on ST's.....he looks fast for a tall guy. Anyone know what his 4o time is?

    Honestly, I don't think he can blcok either. But that's just my opinion.

    Fixed it for ya. Can't believe you left off James Brown or Leonard Pope. Edwin Williams ain't making the team, leaving room for Britton. I also think Walters makes the team over Zbitkowski or Nelson.

    boy... IDK. If Hester can get back to his old form, there are not too many players that can affect a game like he used to. Sometimes he would score twice in a game and he would virtually guarantee great field position because they would either try to kick away from him and sometimes get usgood position or he would run it back for about 20 even on a bad return. He was really one of those rare game changers that put you on the edge of your seat.

    We have not seen it in a while, but Lovie neutered him. Why you would have the leagues best returner EVER as an active roster player and then try to turn him into something else is beyond me. Brady is the best QB out there. It would be like trying to turn him into a CB or something but still put him out there to make throws every so often. He would suck at CB and he probably would not do as well at QB either.

    Lovie was nuts.
