    No shit ... If we had done our homework we could have walked with both Wifkork and Brady.

    I think another team did.

    True, I change my vote. Trivia question: Who did the Bears draft instead of Bradley in 6th round? Paul Edinger.
    Just proves again that QB is hardest to predict.

    Eh,who else has come along in the first round that is actually really good? They could have also stuck out like they did with Brohm. They aren't magical finders of good QBs. You need a stud to turn into a stud. Anyone can get fooled. Look at Marc Sanchez. You think he'd have become a household name in GB?

    I am sure they would have found something.

    And yes, they are miracle makers in terms of QBs

    thats pretty weak

    So if the Bears got Brees the Bears would have been in better shape ?


    let's hear the pipe dream scenarios lay 'em on us

    Scenario 1 what to do with Grossman ?

    During the 2000 free agency period we could have signed Simeon Rice but instead we acquired Philip Daniels. Daniels had a successful career but I will always remember wanting to have Simeon Rice on our D-Line.
