    Just got back from my BEARS FFL site. I put up the question where would you draft CHICAGO BEARS defense ?

    In the past because of Defense/SST's this was alway one of the top Defenses to be drafted.

    So far the answers back are wait and see , and ... towards the last picks of the draft.

    In fact the owner who drafted BEARS defense last season and was crowing about it at the time chimed in and said he would not draft the defense no matter what.

    So people got burned and its a wait and see attitude. I guess thats what its like for all of us.

    I will say this : its the first draft that gave me as a fan everything I wanted in the first four rounds.

    Exactly ... what I wanted. :18 1 205:

    Well , they dug themselves into a hole and have to dig their way out. I say they can.

    This post draft is the first time that UDFA's impressed me.

    Whatever residual hesitation he has is probably the same as that we have. Tucker and his staff.

    On paper the defense is far stronger and far deeper than it was a year ago but with all the talk about making "significant changes" and some of the unknowns at LB and S any reasonable person would have doubts and concerns just as we did about the offense last year.

    Tucker's rep and that of some of his coaches is riding on their being able to turn that defense around quickly in the same manner Trestman did with the offense last year. That alone tells me that if it can be done through great scheming and coaching it will be.

    With the additions Emery made this offseason Tucker won't get another chance if he fails again. There won't be any acceptable excuses for a below average defense this year.

    I hope to get to Vegas before they change that 8-8 pick on the Bears. To me that looks like easy over.

    I'll take those numbers to Vegas also. I think we are going to beat them.

    Yeah, even betting with my head as opposed to me heart we should do better than 8-8 with that offense and an improved defense since we did 8-8 last year with a pathetic defense. I wanna see Jared Allen rack up about 15 sacks this year and at least 7 or 8 each out of Sutton and Houston.

    The way to lessen the concerns at Safety is to take the heat off by burying the other guys deep passing game. That's a pretty strong group of linemen we have and we have some very good blitzers playing LB too. If anything I think we'll see a more aggressive bunch this year than any time in recent history.

    Well I already took those numbers, I have a friend that lives there and he made a $1000.00 wager for me. Now damn it Bears don't let me down.

    We need to have a better record than Seattle cause nobody wants to go to Seattle in the playoffs cause they don't lose at home in that loud ass stadium.

    Only time I want to play Seattle is in the SB. If we are going to get our ass handed to us, at least let's do it for all the marbles.

    That is going to happen since we are both in the NFC and the SB is the NFC v AFC.

    Good point. I never actually thought it through. Kind of like last years real SB. SF vs Seattle.

    I think you made yourself a little money there.

    This team has put together a TEAM that has all the elements that needed addressing ...

    Defense in FA -DRAFT -UDFA's.

    The DL has been addressed which means LB's and SECONDARY can go back to being normal.

    You cover me and I cover you ... I dont have to be brought up to play out of position.

    If this DL works out , then players can go back to their regular positions ...

    i.e.: covering the rest of the field as intended ... no more goofy LB's and SECONDARY ,

    covering for non existent DL !

    Offense in FA-DRAFT-UDFA's

    Carey on my wayward son ... (Whats the name of that band again?)

    We needed a Long Snapper. Looks like we got one.

    Punter that kicks ass as LBer? Argue with this.

    The OPTION PASS ? Lynch could make us Rynch. $$$

    Hey ... hes got the same last name as Jay Leno ...

    takes over Danimals spot on TV ?

    Can he pitch cars ?

    Have you ever seen any kind of weird like this in your lifetime being a BEARS fan ?

    We could invent a whole new game.

    Kansas. The song reminds me of Brandon Marshall coming to Chicago. And Chicago "doesn't have to cry no more" now that we have B.Marsh leading a great offense here. There "will be peace when you are done" Brandon - when the array of Lombardi's are all stacked in the trophy display at Halas Hall.
