    I'm not too worried about this. Every year each team has to address Defense or Offense or Special Teams (or a combo of those). If you have a top 10 Defense already and a poorer Offense, I think you'll be drafting more Offense players.

    Granted there is some truth to your post as there will probably be a small bump due to the "SeaHawk" effect, but even before the SuperBowl teams were figuring out what they need.

    Ok gents got past the superbowl party where every other word was an f bomb from the likes of BEARS (Me) Browns,Dolphins,Tampa,Bills,Lions,Steelers,Cowboys,

    and too many others to list. So.Cal. doesnt have a team ... it has all the teams ... some stuff rubs off during the game.

    Phats thats what I'm hoping for ... that GM's dont go on a "me too" style and run up draft picks on defense that are not worthy therefor making it harder for us to draft.

    This has happened before. The best thing is I hope they wait until the Combine and dont elevate players that are sixth rounders into the third because ,

    "we must be like Seattle."

    Actually Im hoping all the GM's except Emery go that course. Stick to the plan and lets see whats in F.A.

    This is a CHICAGO BEARS team ... that saw its defense disappear ... in one season. Thats never happened before.

    Well, CornWash was top dog in combine last year, and we're still waiting to see on him.

    Yeah, and he's my adopted Bear. But wait til next year! I already have a $1 million bet with Henry that Cornwash will be in the rotation next season.

    Well DaveL ANY defense that we already have would be good if they showed up.

    Saves us a draft pick. Hey Emery has shown to be pretty slick when it comes to OL ,

    think theres a Center in F.A. ?

    That's b/c CornWash wasn't very good come actual game time. And that's what worries me about Emery; he seems more enamored w/combine guys then actual football guys. Corny has all the combine measurable's but just isn't that good of a player(yet), and might never be. Shea and Long were both drafted more b/c of their athleticism and not b/c of their game tape; it worked for Long and was a complete train wreck for Shea. I'd hope Emery can move one past just height, weight, speed, and actually try and look at what they did on the field.

    With the new DL line coach coming to Chicago, hopefully he will help CornWash develop his pass rushing technique. The guy has terrific speed and strength, so technique is all he needs. I do not judge him on his 2013 performance, since he was in on only 10 plays. He didn't do anything great in those 10 plays, but the offense was not running over his ass the way they did with the rest of our DL last season. So I remain hopeful that he will show us something next year. Otherwise, I will be looking for a new Bear to adopt.

    the team seems to disagree w/you David, he didn't do anything great, or even good on those 10 plays, which is why he got buried; and I agree the new coach is coming into get the young guys up to speed.
