Agreed David Thomas interests me a lot as a back up TE.


With Rodriguez I see no reason in bringing in a back up TE who doesn't specialize in blocking.

I think Thomas is a pretty good blocker he is on all the Saints big and heavy teams.

And what has Rodriguez proved other than he can block?

Mike Patterson and Cullen Jenkins both cut from the Eagles today.

I just hope Jenkins doesn't resign with GB. That's probably his best fit at this point.

What he's proved to you isn't important. What is, is thE fact that Trestman and Kromer have already said they have intentions on using him as a weapon on offense... More so as a TE rather than inline FB.

I'd be all for bringing in Jenkins but I dont think we can afford him.

This pertaining to Ryan Fitzpatrick, a guy the Bears may need to look at for the #2 QB spot: did you guys hear the whole Buddy Nix/Mark Dominick phone call thing? After hearing that, as well as some additional audio of Nix, it's no surprise that Buffalo, well, sucks. Shocked

Mad props to those guys that came up with that idea. It was harmless but I have a feeling they will be prosecuted... LOL

It's hard not to want Elvis Dumervil on your team. Such a good pass rusher.

Unless you want your DE to make SOME effort at stopping the run.

Exactly what I was thinking. The Bears pride themselves on stopping the run, he's the antithesis of that

You can always find a spot for an elite pass rusher.
