    I have high hopes for him. He brings a nice package of skills and experience with him and having been invited to "Brandon's Boys Club" down in Florida to train and for a little indoctrination into what it means to be a Bears WR can only help with his maturity and transition into the NFL. I'd love to see this kid become a big play guy for us both on offense and as a returner.

    I feel I have to put another plug in for Brandon Marshall too. As one whose saw him in the earliest years of his career here in Denver and now with the Bears the transformation in him as a person is nothing short of a miracle. He could always play and he always did no matter who he was with. He has too much pride to it any other way. But the "person" he is now is just nothing like the one that existed when he was in Denver. Shocked wouldn't be too strong a word but pleasantly surprised sound a lot better. We really lucked out when we got this version.

    No matter what CWill the second does or doesn't do he'll never replace Devin or the thrills he provided in my heart. In that place there can be only one and I do hope he breaks that record for good and has a prosperous end to his career and then comes home to hang it up as a Chicago Bear. The Bears have had a lot of firsts as far as their HOF players go but no one has ever made the HOF purely as a return specialist and I hope some day that Devin's reward for his career with the Bears. I don't think anyone will equal what he's done.

    DGAF. One of the only things that I'm raw about is not retaining Hester. I understand, common sense-wise why they didn't pay him, but I just can't find a way to cheer for anyone that replaces the GOAT.

    Recently read a piece about Sir Alex Ferguson, the retired manager on Manchester United. It listed his many skills that kept ManU on top for his entire tenure and one of those skills was a willingness to part with a veteran star the moment an age related decline in skill was noticed. He would get top value for the vet, pick up cash or a bright young kid and ManU would just keep on rolling. As cruel as it sounds, winning teams aren't built on sentimentality.

    sure, no doubt about it, a great manager, but im sure u can be something in between. For example, Mourinho excellent manager and his players love him, Sir no so much.
    Dont get me wrong, dont like Mourinho

    Exactly. Players get paid great money while they can deliver for a team. It's about the team, not the player. This isn't a charity. That may sound harsh, but most of us are in the same situation. If I can't perform my job I am no longer going to have a job. Nobody is going to pay me, just to be "nice" to me. That's just the way it is in life.

    But JABF99, where is the loyalty? Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Seriously, modern professional sports in all areas and on all levels is big business. For the teams, the leagues and the players. And expecting anyone involved not to act out out of self interest is unrealistic.

    I don't know if this is the best way for it to be but it is the way it is.
