    I don't really want to root against Carimi, but like BiH, I'm glad to hear your report Tree. I wanted to keep in touch with Gabe also just to see where our evaluations were falling.

    I'm not rooting against Carimi either. I just want to see if this new regime assessment of players is better than the last group of clowns we had. So far so good..

    I don't mind if players go elsewhere to succeed. What I don't like is for us to continue to flounder in developing talent. I can get over the past.

    If a player leaves your team and becomes successful then there are a few problems in house. 1. You cannot assess talent 2. You cannot develop hidden talent or worse of all you do both. With 9 years of Lovie we saw both Manning cut plays well in Houston keep Davis because he’s a top TE in NFL and he has stone hands. Also let’s not forget the wonderful evaluation process of an O-line for last 5 years. If you don’t remember the past you are doomed to repeat it. And Bears organization is real good at repeating the past. Do I have go through the last 20 years of head coaches and GM’s? Unless you’re a Cub fan then just forget the last 100 years.

    I was stoked when we first drafted Carimi. Thought he was going to be a stud T for a decade for us. Crow eaten...was dead wrong. That injury changed everything. As WindyCity and others here predicted, his knee limitations hampered his quickness and mobility enough that he could no longerplay the T position at a high level. If he was back fully healthy in pre-injured form, a 1st round former Outland Trophy winner should be easily winning the starting RT job in Tampa Bay.

    The fact that he isn't and is riding the bench as a #2 tells you that Emery made the right call in getting what he could for him, especially after GC copped an attitude and basically snubbed the new coaching staff.

    I understand what you are saying, but there is also much more to it than talent. It's always a factor of talent/cost/risk.

    Manning was attrocious. And I don't just mean bad, that guy was absolutely horrible every year other than his contract year, then he decided to be decent.

    Long is the highest-graded guard in the NFL after two games and 86 snaps, according to ProFootballFocus.com stats analysis.

    Hmmm..I wonder if he'll start the season with the 1st line?

    Its refreshing to see that they will get to give it another go in the "dress rehearsal." This is absolutely huge for both guys as this will likely be an opportunity to grab the starting job and lock in for the RS opener. Really hoping to see another solid performance and let this UNIT start to solidify.

    LOL at those who don't want Mills at RT yet Webb playing as a rook was ok. I'll take a rook w/a higher football I.Q. who has played at a higher level than a spoon fed golden child in year four just treading water to make it as a swing tackle.

    MAN, I seriously don't get it with some of you posters. Most guys on here are very logical with great football minds but lose it w/marking out with Webb's metrics or "athleticism". It's year FOUR, we've already moved on from Carimi for Pete's sake. Let's move on from this....
