the best problem to have


Lots of competition at LB with 12 fighting for spots. Should be very interesting who makes the team.


I have seven making the team...

Briggs
Williams
Anderson
Bostic
Greene
Thomas
Costanzo

For me it's all about the Oline where there is a ton of options.

I'd like to see Dom DeCicco make the roster. I think he always looked pretty good on special teams, and I think he was really starting to look better at the MLB spot in the preseason. Maybe I just like the guy for some reason.

http://espn.go.com/blog/chicago/bears/post/_/id/4683508/cutler-pleased-with-bears-ol-additions

Quote:
Quarterback Jay Cutler is happy to see the Chicago Bears have made protecting their quarterback a priority after adding to the offensive line through free agency and with two draft picks.

The Bears, who gave up 49 sacks last season, which was fifth in the NFL, invested $17.7 million in guaranteed money in left tackle Jermon Bushrod and added guard Matt Slauson, who started 48 games the past four seasons for the New York Jets, during free agency. The Bears then picked Oregon guard Kyle Long with the 20th overall selection and Louisiana Tech offensive tackle Jordan Mills in the fifth round of the NFL draft.

"(The coaching staff is) going to make sure everyone knows their assignments and we are protected," Cutler said Monday on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN Chicago 1000. "Bushrod is a huge addition and we drafted some guys and some of the guys we had last year have to step in and play well. It's definitely a point of emphasis. We're not going to let the quarterback get hit. We're not going to go into games unsure about protections. Everything starts there, and I think (new offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Aaron) Kromer is doing a great job with getting those guys up to speed with exactly how they want these things done."

It's mind-boggling how it took the organization six years to figure out their offensive line was total garbage.

While we're at it, here's a hypothetical. Last season, the team did little personnel-wise to improve the offensive line. This year, with the coaching change, they've gone out of their way to create two to three layers of competition along the line. That leads me to believe Emery wants to cater to his coaches (just a huge assumption; I have no proof of this). So, with that in mind, if Trestman were the head coach during last year's draft, do you guys think Emery would have taken Reiff or DeCastro over McClellin?

I think Cordy Glenn would be more his type then Reiff or Decastro.

Most TFL over the last Decade from a LB in the NFL?...

Lance Briggs…maybe the HoF isn’t out of reach after all.

He's been the best WLB in the NFL for a decade. It certainly isn't out of reach. It may not be first Ballot, I think HOF is definitely a legit possibility. Its a shame that Ron Rivera and Rex Grossman crapped the SuperBowl down the bed, b/c I think the Lovie Smith defense will end up w/ just as many HOFers as the Buddy Ryan defense.

Because that list means anything...

Quote:
In 2012, Jones played in all 16 games and his offensive output consisted of 30 catches for 406 yards, one carry for six yards, and one touchdown. Harvin’s season was cut short by an ankle injury in the ninth game of the year, but before he got hurt he already had 62 catches for 677 yards, 22 carries for 96 yards, and four touchdowns. And while Jones is a very good return man, Harvin averaged more than five yards per kickoff return better than Jones (35.9 to 30.7) last year.

Gotcha. You were laughing at him being 83, not in the HOF.

I think any player who has made the Pro Bowl seven times at any position has a legitimate shot at making it to the Hall of Fame. 54 hurts his chances though IMO.
