    This is a hypothetical question, because I realize the finished Emery/Trestman team will probably not be like either. But just for the heck of it, what would be your preference? Would you rather see us more like Denver or Seattle's team?

    I selected Denver because I can't stand "Dick" Sherman. Actually, I see the Bears as more similar to Denver. The Seahags are lucky to have found a very inexpensive QB to get them to the big dance, thus allowing them the flexibility to go out and buy a Defense. The Broncos obviously went out and payed big money for their QB, which is the direction we have gone (certainly not to the same level in either talent or $, but you get the drift). So, I'm hoping the Bears can follow the Broncos plan, even though we will never see Jay or any other QB play like Manning. Perhaps it would be best to combine a bit from both.

    We don't have the qb to be like the Bronc's, we don't have the cap to build a D like Sea or SF. We need to be more like Balt, problem is Balt, much like SF and Sea won b/c they didn't have cap wrapped into an overpaid QB that isn't elite. The Bears have to now be their own team, more like NO's, but w/non elite QB, they'll need to draft and bring in young cheap FA's who can produce a D near top 10 D for 1 to 2 years while the O carries them.

    I want a combo plan.

    A defense with ego and an attitude
    An offense that can smack you silly

    Well, I think Seattle looks more like a traditional Bears team, so I'm inclined to answer that way. However, I don't believe the current Bears will ever look that way on offense...so I'd say our own thing. The real attractant to a Seattle like team is the defensive scheme and attitude.

    I see Seattle as having accomplished what Angelo/Lovie should have done here. The problem with Lovie and Angelo, was that they couldn't get the offense figured out. They had the defense and special teams to make it work. Sometimes I think the Cutler move was not necessary IF they had the gears to draft better offense talent. But of course they couldn't. Once they went down the Cutler path, they couldn't provide the level of talent around him so that he could be successful. The ceiling for that team was never going to be at the Super Bowl level again.

    I picked the Seahawks just because I love the smack you in the mouth attitude I wish we had with our defense.

    Right now I think we are closer to Denver in a top line O and trying to assemble a D that can come together for playoffs. Veteran QB, great weapons, building up the O line (Denver's is great) and building a running game that you need come play offs. Jay isn't Manning of course but maybe our weapons and RB are better than theirs.

    Denver's defense is what I hope ours can become. Remember Denver was a team built on D before Manning came to town and then they fell away for most of this year but they have got hot in the play offs. They secondary has managed to do the job, their linebackers are probably under appreciated and then a couple of quality free agent signings lead the way up front on a D line capable of stopping run and pressuring the QB. Terrance Knighton and Shaun Phillips are exactly what we need to add to our defense.

    Seattle's D is just amazing. And they run the ball and then run play action to get what has been just enough O to win the last two weeks. Wilson is a very good QB at making the clutch play when needed but they have a battling O. I'd love to have the dominant D but to assemble one like that you probably need to spend more than we have on a lot of FA (they got Bennett and Avril last year) as well as draft like crazy.

    Seattle. Screw Manning and his bloodline dynasty entitlement. I want some dirt, some grit, some nastiness. Give me Seattle, the unfashionable schmucks with the loud fans, the mean run game and the meaner D.

    Gotta love Sherman. the guy is a winner. he talks shit but that D backs it up. I'm fed up with the 'pussification' of the NFL. I dont want some suppine slick PR interview from my Defensive players. I want a frothing crazed borderline psychotic snarling at the mic. I dont want the Bears to be liked, I dont want wet fanboys stroking themselves over us or braindead 'pundits' blurting out the same hackneyed phrases and inane 'insight' into the game on NFL.com. I want to be hated, to be feared and loathed, to be a mean bunch of mofos who will beat you down and pick you up to beat you down again. Butkus and the monsters, Bear football, smashmouth grit and power, pride and strength, nasty vile and mean. Proper football from an age we only remember. I'd love a defence full of Earl thomas's, Kam Chancellors and Richard Shermans. a bunch of nasty fucks who dont give a fuck. thats what I want, thats what we all secretly want deep down. Thats why Soldier field always cheers a huge hit more than a TD, thats why we like it when its -20 and we know the pussies from Florida or Texas or Socal are gonna be dreading that flight up north for 'Bear weather', that's why defence is so important and we're probably only one of a few teams where the majority of fans have a defensive player as their all-time fave. thats why we just dont care what others think.

    deep down we'd all love to see that kind of D back at Chicago, its who we are, its in our blood and we like it.
