    And yes I get the ego feed for Peanut but why wont he play Safety/CB ?

    If he agrees to that and we resign him alot of issues are resolved.

    And we can move on for the good of the team.

    Interesting interview last night.

    CT: in a perfect world I will play for the Bears next year.

    CT: I guarantee I will retire a Bear (not worth much now a days with teams signing players to one day deals)

    If he leaves, it's because he knows something we do not.

    hmm it makes you wonder if it was suggested that he can play for the Bears if he switches and we all know how Peanut feels about going to the Safety position.....so he decided to do the free agency route ...... well if he does leave I hope he finds a team that gives him a Super Bowl next year because he does deserve it.......then comes back the year after, plays safety for us and we win the Super Bowl... I CAN DREAM!!!!!!

    He'd only walk for Lovie in Tampa ... but thats a whole rebuilding effort in Florida.

    His place is secure in Chi-Town and he knows it. For the good of the team ... play Safety/CB.

    Its not that big of a deal. Get over the ego issue.

    And realistically ... hasnt he been a Safety/Cornerback all along ?

    What is it ? A job title thing ? Ok youre a CB ... play Safety ... you get Cornerback money.

    Whats the problem ?

    Peanut's loyalty has never been questioned. He is the only person I've seen that played with heart.

    Yeah there may be others, but Peanut doesn't just play corner. He's everywhere. He's done everything the Bears have asked him to do. He is our closest thing to Walter Payton we have. He's all heart. Loves his fans, plays with heart, stays out of trouble, never talks trash, and is a work horse for our defense/special teams.

    Peanut has always played the opponents best WR. Remember the Moss/Peanut days?? :D

    Shit Ski, remember when he jumped OVER Moss got the interception and came back to earth BEHIND Moss?

    I STILL dont know how he did that ... it defied every law of gravity.

    I'm a huge Peanut fan, but only because he has every good trait a player should have.

    He's not perfect, but hell, with Cover 2, you don't know what is his fault or blown coverage from the safety.

    Just doing a search for him in youtube and you can see he's SO MUCH more than a player..

    Yeah, I don't think being an NFL player defines who he is.

    Some players are always CHICAGO BEARS.

    If you ever thought for one mintute that JOE MONTANA was a Kansas City Chief ...

    you would be put in a fuckin rubber room.

    And sent to San Francisco in a Federated Express plane in a cage.

    Between Tillman and Melton, I'd rather have CT back even though he's quite a bit older and has less years left in the tank. I hope they could find a way to re-sign Peanut, Ratliff, and Collins (of our own) and then go to the draft. We could then wait until the 2nd or even 3rd to find a CB prospect to groom. Melton on the other hand is nothing special to me and he is purely a 4-3 DT. I'd take Hageman or Tuitt over him in the 1st.
