    Interesting. I agree with most of it, but I don't think DE is a position of need. Unless you have to have two double digit sackmasters. Which in that case, most teams are in need of DE's.

    I don;t think we are as done with the line as we should be, but trugh be told... last year I didn;t think we were done either because I felt we had a hole in C. We did ok, and I think this line is much improved. I'd like to see a penetrating DT chosen at 14, but Emery has the flexibility to run with the line as-is and upgrade the secondary if he wants.

    The truth is we don;t know how good or how bad the line is this year. We all think it will be better. I think so too. We still don;t know how big a factor Mel is or how big a factor Pasqualoni will be. We think the arrow is pointing up, but until they play we don;t know it it's ok as is or a DT would make a big difference. I say pick the DT (overkill is ok here!)

    I hate these writers who know nothing about this team and it's needs. We need one more DE like I need a spare asshole.

    I'm pretty sure you could have picked something else that didn't paint a nasty picture in my head!! :D

    With the De la Puente signing we also don't need an offensive guard.

    These types of articles are just like the Chicago Bears mock drafts where they say we're taking Timmy Jernigan. They're half-assed by writers who aren't putting much thought into it.

    Most of us on these boards could do a better job than they do.

    Since when would OG be a need worth mentioning?

    2 Rock solid starters- and flexibility with Garza and De la Puente to have at least some decent depth.

    This is almost as bad as ESPN

    I don't think anyone said that the Bears need another OG.

    Offensive Guard was wrongfully mentioned as a position of need in the clip from the article above.
