    Good topic for conjecture Henry:

    Taking the new rules into consideration I'd probably go Danimal in his prime before many of the knee problems. A Wilbur Marshall would be intriguing and of course would love to see Sweetness. The Planks and Butkus would get tossed out in this era.

    If Dagan was here he would have some good reasons for Atkins. I like the Fencik idea as well as the others too.

    Center Jay Hilgenberg would be a huge help. He's a 7 time All-Pro. He sure helped block for Walter Payton - and he'd help set the pocket for Cutler. Flanked by Slauson & Long, we'd have a bulletproof interior line.

    Hilgy should be in the Hall of Fame but it's almost impossible for a center to make it into the Hall.

    Walter Payton. The "roster needs" him, just so we can watch him play again.

    My first choice was Butkus, but I don't know if he would be able to adjust to the more gentler rules of today.

    On offense I'd go with one of the following:
    Bronko Nagurski in at FB, people say its an outdated position, I say you'd have the best rushing offense in the league with bronko lead blocking for you
    Clyde Bulldog Turner at Center. This is one of those, "if he could be extrapolated to the size of a modern player". This would shore up an OL immediately.

    Um, the greatest running back in NFL history ring a bell? Walter Payton played most of his career without a qb or offensive line. Blitzing linebackers get punished, secondary players get punished trying to tackle him, did I mention he can throw the ball and most important, he owned the packers.

    It's gotta be somebody off the '85 Bears -- probably Dent, Marshall, or Fencik.

    Gotta be Dick or Walter. Walter would make everyone forget about AP. That guy was an artist and the football field was his canvas. It was literally a thing of beauty to watch him run sometimes. I rmember his record setting 275 yard game against the Vikings. Gaaawwd it was gorgeous. As for Dick, well, let's just say he would be fined more than his salary by mid season, and suspended for life by the end of the season, but wouldn't it be fun to watch?

    so apparently i put my suggestions in the wrong thread ;o

    Bobby Douglas, passing now a days is so much easier then it used to be, so those stats get better, and this is now the age of the 2 threat qb, so his running #'s go up also. Guy well could be a 10K rusher and 30 K passer in this day and age.

    If not, I'll take Kreutz in his prime next to Long, are you kidding me.
    Hell w/today's medical procedures how has Gale Sayers not been brought up, he'd be a legit change of pace back, and the Bears don't lose a step losing Hester for KR/PR.

    On D Richard Dent, won't be any issues getting qb pressures now.
    how about Mike Brown, safety issues resolved.

    I would have mentioned Sayers, but I thought the question was about which player from the past would fill our biggest weakness on the 2013 team. Forte is no Gale Sayers, of course, but he can get the job done. Our big problem this year is going to be defense, especially pass rush and safety. That's why I went with Dent, Marshall, or Fencik. They would all help a lot. You young guys won't know this, but teams used to squib the kickoff down to the Bears 40 yd. line just so Sayers couldn't get a kickoff return. He was that good. Think of Barry Sanders with more speed. That's Sayers.

    I'm gonna change it up, one offensive, one defensive:

    Rosevelt Colvin. Dude had 2 straight seasons with 10.5 sacks for us, and the SLB spot has never been the same without him. Imagine the blitzing opportunities...

    Honestly, I'd take Gale Sayers over WP on this team, because he'd be the speed back to compliment Bush's bruising style and Forte's "jack of all trades" play.
