    I'm not giving up on him. Let him have this rookie year to learn the ropes. Maybe they'll get him some more reps at some point this season. Even if they don't, he may still be a solid player for us. There's not crime in needed a rookie year to learn the ropes.

    I sure hope that he can turn into something, but this team and every other team in the NFL has asked rookies to step up and play when they are needed.

    Well he is needed, badly, and the team has no confidence that he is capable of playing. And if we had not had so many injuries then I would have been fine with him sitting.

    I guess it is just reality smacking me in the face that a lot of 6th round picks never pan out, and we just might have one of those from last years draft. I hope I'm eventually wrong, but our situation indicates that he is a long shot to make it with the Bears.

    I think Tucker should introduce CornWash to Trestman, because Trestman doesn't know who he is. In his last interview, he said Cheta Ozougwu would be activated and said not one word about CornWash. That is disrespecting the player..

    Anyway, they did get CornWash activated. Unfortunately, they only let him play a few downs. He made a couple good moves, and then they put Bass in for him. That pissed me off. On the first play, he tackled Reggie Bush for loss and was the closest Bear to the fumble. Then, he did a nice bull rush on the tackle and hit Stafford just after he threw an incomplete pass to Megatron. That was closer than Peppers or Bass got to Stafford all day. They rewarded CornWash by putting him on the bench for the rest of the game. I studied Bass today. He had a typical Bear DE performance -- never got close to Stafford and gave up Bush runs of 40 and 14 yards right over his spot. Like McClellin, he is not good against the run. Peppers was another "no show" performance.

    As in Redskins game, the Bears win the game if they could stop the opponent's last scoring drive. I watched that 49er/Panthers game. Panthers murdered Kaepernick with their pass rush all day, including the final series. I am green with envy of their DL.

    Bass played very well, considering how bad he's been in small amounts, thus far. Washington simply isn't "good enough" to start.

    Bass did not play well at all. He never got in the same zip code as Stafford all day. That's the #1 job of a DE. I watched the game twice. On running plays they opened holes on his side. As I said,the Bush runs for 40 yards and 14 yards went through Bass. I am not campaigning for CornWash to start, but based on his comparison with Bass today, he deserves more than 4 plays per game.

    If Corn Wash's football I.Q. is on par with Webb's the kids in trouble before he even gets out of the gate. At least Corn Wash gets a "redshirt" year and not punched down our throats like Webb was as a starter. Still I'd like to see just a FEW plays from the guy.

    That's been our problem. The D has been lackluster ever since Webb left. He is the key.

    nothing we hadn't figured out by the fact that they got a guy off another teams PS to start in front of Corny. Corny was the backup today and totalled 1 whopping tackle, same as Izzy. So the bright side is the team saved money by not resigning Izzy who has been replaced by a 5th round rookie, who happened btw to be easily replaced by a PS prospect from Oakland.
