Who is our LS????
Not sure we really have one right now. I'm still thinking Mannelly will be back, but it needs to be addressed. I checked and a guy by the name of Brandon Hartson is listed as our LS, but still think Mannelly might return
From the day FA opened was sure we will sign DLP, was surprised by resigning Garza for anything more than min. Still, Im very glad we have DLP and im sure we'll find a way to make him useful.
Does Garza still have what it takes to play Kickoff Returner ?
Does De La Puente's deal with the Bears mean that we don't have rights to re-sign him before free agency starts in January/February 2015 like what happened with McCown this year?
We got De La Puenta on a minimum salary deal? Holy crap. I keep waiting to see "April Fools!" somewhere after reading this. And Angelo was willing to give Kruetz 4 million. This is a huge bargain.
LOL! Consider the source
I brought that same point up yesterday. I believe it's the same type of contract situation.
Speculation now is that De La Puente plays Center, Garza plays Right Guard, and Long plays Right Tackle. This makes sense with Mills coming off of a foot injury.
Not sure if anyone remembers this story when Garza was signed, but the deal may have monetary significance to this signing:
Also, I have to pat myself on the back on this one as I called this signing back in February (I think miljan brought it up at some point as well). I get so few things right that when I do, I just have to dance. :)
good call 4da.
This is kinda baffling IMO. Like the signing but I'm wondering what this means for Garza? Second thoughts on giving it another go? Unknown injury? Phil considering cutting him? Phantom injury to Slausen or Long? Just a depth signing for this year? Hard to tell but I expect some kind of news on something regarding him or someone else soon.
Boggs and Brown are in trouble. DLP can backup OC and OG, and Britton can backup OG and OT. They can ride with 7 linemen and take any 2 linemen in one game going down with no dropoff. If they want to carry a project lineman they can as well. Boggs's one year deal for 655,000 is now high for a 3rd string center, and Brown hasn't gotten much love from Kromer. I figure the Bears would go into camp with everybody to protect themselves from injury, but when final cuts come, Boggs and Brown are toast.
This is great bargain hunting by Emery using Kromer's connection to a former player to the Bears advantage. He can transition DLP over the year at such a cheap price, let Garza retire next year, and give DLP a Slauson kind of deal in 2015. If De La Puenta does not play except in reserve, he won't have much to bargain with and Emery can dictate the kind of deal he gets in 2015.
Mannelly was spotted this morning, headed to Halas Hall from the parking lot. If he can make it inside, they'll get him signed for another season.
I believe Roberto was a great addition to the Bears when he signed from Atlanta. He has always been an asset to Chicago and the team. However, if Phil can make the team better that's his job. He has made the tough choices with Urlacher, Hester, Melton, etc. As a Bear fan since 1951 I love when the Bears win, and if someone needs to be replaced so the bears can win, I support the decision. Roberto will always be remembered as a great team player. His age and physical condition have finally caught with him. Thanks Roberto in case BDP does replace you sometime during the season.
I see he has one of those devices that our old OL used to use to try and trip up the DL as they came in for the kill. Problem was they kept tripping over it themselves. Webb even tried eating one. It was a mess.
I love all the speculation when the reality of the situation is that NONE of us really know what Emery has up his sleeve and nobody can figure out just what he's going to do next. HOW REFRESHING !
^^^^This-post of the month. No amount of over analysis is going to predict the wildcard that is Emery. And that's a good thing.
This guy is the only Long Snapper listed on the team
ur right, was sure we sign him, cos of Kromer, glad we did, hes a decent guy
