going into a report this past week, he is considered the 3rd best pass rusher this year of the players taken in the 1st round. Looks like 4 of 7 Pass Rushers are a waste of 1st round pick and busts... but don't forget goalies in hockey get 5 years until you can judge them

Also found it interesting BWC neglected to mention the 4 other Bears who missed the tackle on that play, several of them veterans.

Quality, not quality, it's subjective. The easiest way to say it is the Bears are 1-4 against teams over .500, or basically play-off teams. Doesn't exactly inspire a lot of confidence.

I knew I would see it and I was even more disgusted then I thought I would be.





This one just gets me. Where is your OJ jersey? Maybe in your closet next to your Rae Carruth jersey. Do you plan on getting the jersey of the next football player to murder his girldfriend/wife?



RIP Kasandra M. Perkins, I hope and pray for your family and mostly for your daughter who is now without parents. I hope and pray for Javon Belchers family as they go through a tough time.

As for Javon Belcher, I hope there is no peace where you rest.

End of rant, just amazed to see how stupid most people are. RIP you murder because you played football? So if Hitler had been great at a sport all would have been forgiven?

Agreed, but they missed their starting quarterback for 1.5 of those games.

Bears should finish at least 2-2. They have to beat the Pack to have a shot at winning the division though.

Apparently it was over her coming home late from a rap concert.

Curt Menefee on how they approached covering the tragedy:

Quote:
Menefee, in a phone interview, explained: "For us it was all about presenting the facts, although it's still unfolding. Where do you strike the balance? Do you paint (Belcher) as a sympathetic figure? Or, as someone who perpetrated a crime? That's where you at least try to strike the balance."
"someone who perpetrated a crime" ??? What? What is that even...I don't know, God help us all.

Looked like he seperated his shoulder. I wouldn't expect him back this year.

At this point, just hope he can maybe be back for the playoffs... but don't expect him back anytime soon, that's for sure.

Speculation is Jake Long may have played his final down as a Dolphin yesterday, after sustaining a tricep injury. Would cost the Fins just north of 15M to tag him next year, which no one expects them to do. Not sure what he'd get on the free market, but I'd still be interested. Some people think he has been less effective due to nagging injuries, but I don't think anyone really knows for sure. Really curious to know what his next contract will be in the area of, especially if he did tear his triceps, like many fear. I have no idea...

One armed Jake Long is better than two armed J'Marcus Webb

This sums it up nicely

Though Webb has played ok these past 2 weeks

He has the freaking physical talent to be a good LT ,, But he just doesn't have tools

Worst case he might have to flip to RT

We need both spots filled

At least Carimi is showing some potential at G .. Could be a longterm solution opposite Louis going forward

Long-Carimi-Garza-Louis-?

He wouldn't be a free agent if there weren't injury concerns. We'd just have to roll with it and hope for the best.

Fair point.


Also sounds like Miami is just getting sick of him as well.

I think there are issues there. I definitely do not think we'd be getting the dominant Long we'd like to get. However, I am positive, however overpaid, he would still be a significant improvement to the Bears O-line and that's what it comes down to in the end. Kind of like when we signed Muhammad, we knew he wasn't as good but he still improved our receiving corps quite a bit even though he was very overpaid.

Wait, Webb has arms? Oh, that's why people have been so critical of him. I always through it was mean-spirited for people to be so critical of him, given the fact that he's a triple amputee and playing pretty darn well considering that handicap.

.... he is a triple amputee, right? I mean, that really is the only explanation I had for his play this past year.

I think he would be no worse then John Tait

Tait was solid LT in his time with Bears

So adding Long via FA would be comparable move to when Bears brought in Tait to solidify the T position. Originally T was to play RT for Bears but Qasim Mitchell sucked

Tait moved to LT and Bears brought in Fred Miller

Both were solid T's and gave Bears quality OL play during the mid 00's

We literally had to drive a dump truck of cash up to Tait's house to get him to play here.

I really hope not. The Bears need Carimi to get it together and be the RT they thought he was when they drafted him. They need to stop this "Draft a Tackle who can't be an NFL Tackle so we will make him a Guard" BS. We need Carimi to be better than Chris Williams 2.0

True

Of course the Bears of then are nothing like Bears of now

Long would actually have a QB , RB , WR , Coaching staff of NFL quality unlike what Tait had when signing with Bears

Bears should free up a decent chunk of $$$ with Urlacher becoming FA ,, Use that to upgrade the OL (Make Long #1 priority)

Problem will be some big $$$ teams like Dallas have terrible O-lines and wont hesitate to outbid the Bears
