    Covert. As an "outside the box" pick, I'd love to see vintage Hester in he return game this year. The field position that he could offer would help this O a ton!

    Covert, but who would get to wear #74? I wish we had problems like that.

    My man crush on Mike Brown will not abate.
    Also, any team would benefit greatly w/ #34 in the backfield.

    A defensive General like him would upgrade that secondary in a heart beat.

    We need THIS man. Get him a decent helmet (lose the leather lid) and start taking snaps. Sid would probably have a heart attack when he finds out what QB's make now (he made $5k a year). Let Jay carry his clipboard :)

    Gotta disagree with the Sid luckman choice. Unless we're going by "what they did comparatively in their own era". You could put Rex Grossman back in the 30's and 40's, and "unleash the dragon" wouldn't be a joke.

    Old Sid would be 98 years old this season (heck, that's almost Garza-old) so maybe you're right :)

    You make a good point Henry. It's impossible to compare players from different eras. People never seem to agree on these comparisons.

    On a side note, it's amazing they could even throw those old footballs that were shaped like fat rugby balls. Sid was our QB in the NFL Championship game against the 'Skins. We put up 73 points in that game with him at QB. 73-0. Rex Grossman never won an NFL Championship game by 73 points, and I don't think Sexy Rexy will be a Hall of Fame Bears QB either :-)

    Here's an old pic of Sid and Papa Bear at that game. Halas sure looks like a happy camper that day.

    No, I was just meaning, if we go by how good Sid was for his era, and translate that to today's game, he'd be great. If we're just going off of athletic ability at their height, Rex would've been a GOD, if he played back then.
