maybe it's just me, but I'd rather start Long with Mills this year than seeing Carimi or Webb as a Bear. This is a transition year and getting Mills and Long playing time will only do them good. Bushrod will be the reason that Cutler won't get killed out there.
Wouldn't be surprised to see Cutler go at the end of the year but I sure hope he stays. Getting WRs has nothing to do with Cutler staying... we finally have some that can catch the ball and thats something every QB needs
Oh but not for the omniscient Mr D., Grizz. And he even know which college QB we should draft in 2014 whose guaranteed to be better right from the get go. ;)
Think I should post the definition of omniscient so he knows what it means? :p
Well he's now been officially demoted and taken a pay cut to go along with it so his train is already half way out of the station. If he doesn't get his shit together and play half way decent as Bushrod's backup then he'll be catching the caboose out of town and we'll have Scott as a backup LT. :eek:
but dont you see this situation as progress soul? Under Lovie accountability only happened on defense. If we had this attitude with the offense in the lovie years could you imagine how good we could be with the defense we had in their prime? But no ST and Def and the rest be damned. WTF kind of philosophy is that? Right now no job is safe so you will see more hustle from our guys if they want to keep their job but in webbs case he is too busy with webb nation to worry about that.
What we are seeing is a pattern of cutting losses and moving on quickly by the new regime. Urlacher (age/injury/cost), Rodriquez (arrests), Carimi (injury/bad attitude), Louis (injury), KDavis (obvious suckitude), and now Webb is next on the launching pad.
You may occasionally give up too quickly on a guy and see him go on to another team and have success but you gotta admit the new bosses in town are decisive.
I agree. It is good to see decisive moves rather than dying a slow death with some of the garbage players "hanging on" too long. If they can't play then cut your losses and move on. Next man up. Lovie seemed to move at a glacier speed when it came to making adjustments of any kind (both in games AND in personnel moves). I hated it.
Regarding Webb, I think the problem is in his head rather than physical attributes......so how do you fix that? I don't think you can. Maybe he is good enough to be a backup - but - if he isn't and they make up their minds to cut him, then I'm hopeful we get something for him. Anything. I'll bet there's a 50/50 chance some desperate team could give us a 7th or even 6th round draft pick in 2014 for him.
I'm a geologist, and I believe a glacier could easily beat Lovie in a race. (Unless the race included throwing red flags.)
But I agree with the blue statement. How refreshing to see REAL accountability. Webb only has his immature attitude and lack of perseverence to blame for his position on the hot seat. Speaking of seats, I doubt he could win a game of musical chairs with kindergarden kids. He'd be too busy juggling the bags of tacos and burgers.
My attitude of having him as a starter for that kind of money preempted any desire to even have him on the roster at all. Even with the pay cut, we may have a previously unmotivated player turned into a motivated 'victim' playing even worse.
Still, I'm expecting the Bears/Trestman to make the next move by severing ties if that happens just like he was demoted & paid more in line as a backup. If he's kept as a backup, I'm sure it will be for the reason he's the best we've got at the moment which doesn't mean they won't be watching the wire down the road for better options.
Webb is done, fellas. He may hang on for a while as the swing but he will be gone as soon as can be accomplished. At most, he sticks for the 2013 season and is shown the door in FA. The writing is on the wall. He's not in Emery's/Trestman's plans.
