    We've all argued back and forth yadda yadda, and we all mostly know where each other stand in regards to players, coaches and Emery.

    And the loser of the bet has to change their avatar or signature for a week or so.

    I'm gonna throw 2 wagers, if anyone's interested(but only gonna bet on one of these, per person):

    Jwebb will be a better starter on the o-line than everyone but Bushrod through 5 games


    Michael Bush will be significantly more productive than Alshon Jeffrey


    If I win, you have to change your avatar to a certain former New York Jets/Miami Dolphins QB that was 2x comeback player of the year.

    How long do I have to have Douche Pennington as my avatar and are we talking about the entire season? Cuz I'll totally take you up on the Alshon over Bush bet. I am not really sure how we determine the winner tho... how much more productive does Bush have to be than Alshon to qualify as "significantly more productive"... sounds pretty subjective.

    Sure, I am game.

    But what are your terms for more productive and better?

    Just do an end of season poll to get the board's opinion.

    With the way most Bear fans hate Webb, that would be a slam dunk

    Bush's TD's vs. Alshon's, something like Bush's YPCA compared to the league average vs. Alshon's YPC Average in comparison to the league average(the meaning should be obvious), with the stipulation being they must meet a certain number of touches; if one does, and the other doesn't, the edge automatically goes to that guy, injuries be damned. Somebody can add suggestions to change the stipulations, but I think those 2 would be pretty good.

    As for the Pennington avatar, a whole month. Anything that goes week-by-week goes from Sunday to Sunday.

    That's the bet I really want to make, but someone more creative than I will have to figure out how to work that one.

    Well, I will take the Webb one. There are sites that can measure how good/bad OL guys are.

    You are on.
