    We have too many needs to be double drafting at both positions. We just cannot afford Emery to whiff on key picks (Shea/Hardin)

    And like it or not our new, current identity is offense...hopefully with a decent enough offense to keep them from putting up 30+

    Grizz I hope it never comes to we are defined as being either defense or offense.

    Lets keep them guessing ... and win games in the process.

    Now 8-8 isnt such a bad start for a FRANCHISE that just tossed its HC overboard the year before.

    Theres no need to even get in about Defense ... it has to be resolved for the likes of G.B.,Detroit and Minny.

    Thosse are just kind of junk teams. If we are going to be Players ... it has to be Seattle and Frisco thats our target to get to the dance.

    Dont set our sites low to the NFC North. We are beyond that . Lets humbug Seattle and see where we stand.

    This TEAM isnt afraid of those son of a bitches ... We'll take them on. Thats what we're made of.

    Lets keep an eye on this guy : Anthony Barr UCLA LB, sucked at the combine but bounced back since.

    An LDE ?

    The Detroit Lions didn’t do any open-of-business deals at the start of free agency Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean that they weren’t working.
    Lions general manager Martin Mayhew spent part of Tuesday at UCLA’s pro day, where one of the draft’s top outside linebacker prospects, Anthony Barr, wowed scouts with his workout.
    UCLA coach Jim Mora tweeted that Barr ran a 4.44-second 40-yard dash Tuesday, significantly better than the 4.66 he ran at the NFL combine last month.
    A converted fullback who played just two seasons of defense in college, the 6-foot-5, 255-pound Barr had 23.5 sacks and 41.5 tackles for loss the last two seasons. He likely would play strongside linebacker in the Lions’ new defense and have pass-rushing responsibilities in sub packages or at defensive end.
    The Lions, who pick 10th in May’s draft, are thin at linebacker and could lose one of their top pass rushers in free agency. Willie Young is visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars today.

    Hey wait a minute ... Willie Young ? And Anthony Barr on CHICAGO BEARS ?

    Barr is more of a 3-4 guy. We don't need to try to convert another guy's position when we will have a schematic match in other players. If Barr falls to us it may be a great chance to get a team to overpay to trade up with us so we can net some great picks and still have a good shot at the guys we may very well take at 14 anyways.

    Its good to be in the position of 14 to affect the NFL.

    Emery could be in a position to be a lord in the draft if he plays his numbers right.

    14 isnt top ten ...but it is on the outside top 15.

    HALAS HALL is sitting in the catbird seat on draft day.

    In the middle of the draft Emery could be being seated in the most coveted spot.

    Now what do we do with this ?

    Its still DT and Safety.

    For old times sake ...

    One of the greatest return men in NFL history will join the Atlanta Falcons.[​IMG]
    Devin Hester agreed to a three-year contract with the Falcons on Thursday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported. The team later confirmed the news.
    The Falcons desperately needed an upgrade in the return game. Atlanta ended 2013 10th in kickoff-return average (24.4) and 20th in punts (8.2) last season. They were also one of four teams in 2013 without a punt return over 25 yards or a kick return of over 50 yards, per ESPN's Field Yates.
    Solely a returner with the Chicago Bears, Hester, 31, represents a major upgrade over Jacquizz Rodgers on kick returns and Robert McClain on punt returns.
    Playing inside the Georgia Dome -- as opposed to the sloppy Soldier Field -- should aid Hester as he ages.
    The return specialist is the NFL's all-time leader in punt return touchdowns (13) and total kick return touchdowns (18). Hester also returned a missed field-goal attempt 108 yards for a touchdown. Hester's 19 regular-season return TDs ties Hall of Famer Deion Sanders for the most in league history.
    He will try to own the mark by himself with the Falcons.

    When the Bears' 2014 regular-season schedule is released by the NFL sometime next month, it will be filled with former players and coaches.
    The Bears will play games against all five of their players who have signed with other teams in free agency. They'll face defensive ends Julius Peppers (Packers) and Corey Wootton (Vikings) at home and on the road; defensive tackle Henry Melton (Cowboys) and quarterback Josh McCown (Buccaneers) at Soldier Field; and return specialist Devin Hester (Falcons) in Atlanta.
    McCown won't be the only familiar face on the Tampa Bay sideline. The Buccaneers are led by former Bears coach Lovie Smith, who has added seven of his former Bears assistants to his new staff: Kevin O'Dea (special teams coordinator), Gill Byrd (cornerbacks), Andrew Hayes-Stoker (receivers), Hardy Nickerson (linebackers), Mike Phair (assistant defensive line), Mikal Smith (safeties) and Tim Spencer (running backs).

    Former Bears defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli, who serves in the same capacity with the Cowboys, will be coaching Melton in Dallas and accompanying him to Soldier Field.

    In addition to Hester, the Falcons feature former Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice, who is Atlanta's offensive line coach, and guard Gabe Carimi, the Bears' 2011 first-round draft pick.

    The Bears will also play games against three former players who are head coaches in Jim Harbaugh (49ers), Ron Rivera (Panthers) and Sean Payton (Saints), and one who is a defensive coordinator in Leslie Frazier (Buccaneers).

    The past is dead ... its ony BEARS football from here on out.

    From the past arises the future ... good stuff and hope.
