2011 Chicago Bears General Discussion
 
Thought I would start a broader thread so that we don't have to start new threads for minor things (Alphonso Boone for example).

To start it off:

We got bumped. Not suprisingly, but still dissapointing as I enjoy watching primetime games.

I'm hoping they move Giants/Bears to Sunday night again. I'll be in Chicago for the game, and I'd rather it be the night game so I can watch all the others during the day.

Could we cut Manning Jr. in the offseason or would we take a cap hit?

Contract is pretty big for a guy who can't be trusted to back up the top two corner spots. He is a great nickel but I think Trumain McBride could fill his spot at the price of a 7th rounder.

Smokey Joe 11-10-2007 10:23 AM

exactly what SFbear said.

dabears10 11-10-2007 11:11 AM

You don't think that we can trade him?

Smokey Joe 11-11-2007 11:24 AM

apparently if Griese sucks today we are going back to Rex... :rolleyes:

Where did you hear that?

dabears10 11-11-2007 03:54 PM

Jay Glazer said it on Fox Pre-game show.

Hurricane Ditka 11-11-2007 05:28 PM

So Matt Ryan, Brian Brohm or Andre Woodson? Decisions, decisions, decisions. Or do we go with say Jake Long/Gosder Cherlius/ Sam Baker and follow up with a Qb in the second round?

sweetness34 11-11-2007 05:30 PM

I'm not a big fan of Ryan personally. I think he's a good college QB but not a big fan of him as an NFL Prospect. I'd rather have Brohm or Woodson. Either that or say Henne in the 2nd Round.

bearsfan_51 11-11-2007 05:31 PM

Assuming we draft in the top 15 I don't want Cherlius, the value just isn't there. My personal rankings.

1)Long
2)Woodson
3)Phillips
4)Baker
5)Ryan
6)Clady


And no on Brohm.

Hurricane Ditka 11-11-2007 05:33 PM

We're picking in the top 15. Theres no two ways about it. At this point we'll be lucky not to pick in the top 10. Ron Turner has to go, no way no how should he be offensive coordinator next year.

Smokey Joe 11-11-2007 05:40 PM

I think my dog can come up with a more imaginative play calling then Turner. The only reason why we might not lose this game is because the Raiders are just bad.

My big board:

1. Long
2. Woodson/Brohm/Ryan - whichever one would be the best fit for our hopeful new offense
3. Phillips
4. Baker

Hurricane Ditka 11-11-2007 06:16 PM

1. Long
2. Ryan
3. Woodson
4. Baker
5. Philips
6. Cherilus
7. Kieth Rivers (of we lose Briggs)

bearsfan_51 11-11-2007 06:22 PM

Random thought..but our safties have had a very nice game. Granted the Raiders pass attack sucks, but even from a blind eye point of view they've been in position all day.

Hurricane Ditka 11-11-2007 06:25 PM

Manning's hit on Fargas was great. I really don't think he's that bad, but we'll see Arch for what he really is next week.

RaiderNation 11-11-2007 06:26 PM

this is the worst game ive seen in a while

As a Raiders fan I find that hard to believe.

atleast in the games last year there we scoring even if we werent

Hurricane Ditka 11-11-2007 06:35 PM

Your god do we need some offensive lineman. I want to see Beekman in there as early as next week. Depending on value a first round QB is nice, but our need at left tackle is disgusting.

bearsfan_51 11-11-2007 06:36 PM

Beekman isn't even active. Anthony Oakley is the 3rd guard. That should tell you something.

Smokey Joe 11-11-2007 07:17 PM

Now Rex Grossman is the answer once again...:rolleyes:

Seriously though, any QB who can throw makes that TD pass.

Our OLine is so freaking bad still. The only reason why we won the game today was because it was the ******* Raiders. The D showed some heart for once at least.

And besides for one throw on offense, we had a piss poor day.

sweetness34 11-11-2007 08:16 PM

Give credit where credit is due Smokey. You may not like Rex, but he did win us the game today. Or well threw the TD to put us up. I'm not saying he's a good QB (although I still like Rexy :() but he did play well today.
