    Melton, starting DT, IR
    Collins, backup DT, IR
    DJ Will, starting MLB, IR
    Briggs, starting WILL/playcaller, out 4-6 weeks
    Cutler, starting QB, out 4-6 weeks
    DaBU, starting TE, nagging shoulder and missing/limited in games
    P-nut, starting CB, nagging knee,and missing/limited in games
    Paea, starting NT, nagging turf toe, missing/limited games

    The inj's are mounting, and the team was paper thing to begin with on both sides of the ball b/c of poor drafting since the SB. Lets keep this list around and add to it as the year goes on.

    Brandon Marshal's wrist? Any news on those x-rays yet?
    Peppers' plantar fasciitis still bothering him?

    With Emery and Trestman I think we can end up as contenders 5+ years into the furture.

    At the start of the season there was a lot of debate to whether this season would be rebuilding or not, right now it feels more like next year and the year after will be rebuilding years.
    Fuck me..

    2012 was JA's last draft. Emery had no time to overhaul the scouting Dep't/draft board.
    2013 Emery fixed the O-line/TE
    2014 Emery fixes the D-line/safety
    2015 Emery starts drafting for QBs/depth

    Two more years.

    2015 is to late to draft a qb. He'll have to do it next year, and get the DL and DB's via FA and draft, as well as a qb and backup rb(Bush cannot stay on his salary if he's not going to play).

    I don't think Emery will wait that long, he might skip drafting a QB this year if they sign Cutler but then it's time to get a development QB
    If Emery can fix the almost the whole defense this year then he has to get a freakin' big paycheck.

    My worry is just that it will take too long time for us in order to be real SB contenders. If we resign Cutler we can cut 3-ish years of the "rebuilding" phase or so but there are still plenty of wholes and our furture rookies aswell as our current rookies need to become playmakers and probowlers or furture probowlers.. Perhaps I'm just too depressed over the Bears lose and all the injuries but I don't see us as contenders to playoff/SB in the near furture.

    Personally I would like our next 3 drafts to look like this:
    2014: Defense all the way. Unless a Mills shows up I really don't wanna see any offensive picks.
    2015: Get a new Center, speedy WR, TE, QB, for development, DE/LB/Safety
    2016: What ever the team lacks at that point.

    Yeah, that is the most likely scenario...if he doesnt re-sign Cutler, then he might pick up a QB late in the draft to see if there is anything there, but probably wont focus on the position until 2015 draft (after the '14 season). This year is going to be all about the DL/Secondary.

    Sorry, meant to include a QB with the safeties next year. 2015 QB was for "developmental QBs".

    Injuries happen, rashes of injuries happen but at what point does the S&C coach get called into question?
