    (I've brought this topic up before, but today is New Year's Eve in football season, so we're all just sitting around ready to celebrate)


    This can be a guy that had one great year, with a career cut short by injury, or an all time great.

    Keep this in mind: We're going by ROSTER NEEDS. (I have a feeling only '85 Bears will be picked, regardless)

    I'd either have to go with Danimal, who would force teams to go with one-on-one matchups with Peppers and Melton, unless they were stupid enough to go one-on-one with him, which is even better.

    OR

    Jim Covert, who would force Bushrod to the right side of the line, and undoubtedly make ours one of the best lines in the NFL.

    If I had to choose between them, Danimal. No way in the world anyone would have a good passing game against us, seeing as they generally don't already.

    On D side I like Hamp but Dent was the man. Dent speed would be like having 2 Pepps out there so I go Dent.

    On O this may sound weird but with Trestman's O we could use a guy like Brad Muster/Matt Suhey a real old time fullback, pick your poison I'll take either one.

    I DID NOT consider a fullback. Jeez, Suhey would open the ground game up more than a well-targeted napalm strike.

    I like and agree with the Jim Covert pick. Maybe the single guy this team could use the most these days.
    Can't go wrong with an early vintage of Butkus either.
    Dent '84-'86.......paired with Peppers now. What a sight that would be.
    1999 vintage of Marcus Robinson would make a great #2 right now. Or the 1995 incarnation of Jeff Graham for that matter.

    It's a tough call. I'm gonna go with Dent or Perry.

    Pick one. ;-)

    I would like to see Perry the refrigerator, just for the sake of it. I'm really sad I didn't live doing his NFL career with the Bears. Watching him was amazing I imagine.

    It's hard to pick one so I'll bend the rules.
    Butkus - in his golden days at MLB, making our defense even more feared.
    Olin Kreutz - would give us a pro bowl center with solid experience to support the right side of our line.
    Webb - giving us a legit LT and move Bushrod to RT that would give us the best tackle pair in the NFL.

    Whoever the hell the best OL in our teams history. OL is still our biggest weakness

    He, and Mike Brown, were the guys I thought of with "good but injured"
