The Bears have to many questions to give away picks since Jerry might get lucky on a pick once a year.Rideau and Bennet how do you know,they never saw the field?Jerry is maybe one more draft away from being launched.Smyth is cutting his picks.How do you know what you have if they can't scout these kids,it won't get turned around very fast.And I refuse to drink the Lovie half glass full line.

Yes, we do need a wide receiver on this team, and yes one who can catch the long passes. He would fit in on this team.

A few of the posts mentioned players that have become starters at other teams and that those teams were in the playoffs. Another post mentioned that Smith doesn't allow tackling during practice. Those beg the questions

1) Why can't The Bears develop their players? They seem to be able find talent. Success in the NFL is about furthering and increasing skill and ability.

2) Is the reason The Bears have been poor tacklers the past three years because they don't practice the technique?

Gotta wonder about the franchise and leadership.

The the news people that haven't asked or answered those questions for Chicago subscribers.

The majority of NFL teams do not tackle during practice including Eagles, Patriots, Colts. This is how players can stay healthy longer than they used to. Pro players have been tackling since they were 10--they don't have to practice it every day.

their not great, but they are definitely better than average. and the bears got rid of them right when they were beginning to excel. the only ones they got rid of when they should on that list was wade and gandy but the rest they let go too early. berrian came off of his best season with the bears, colombo was just starting to figure it out, chris harris was becoming a legit safety in the league, and mark bradley was definitely better than the guy they kept over him, which was rashied davis.

None of those players would have made any impact other than Berrian who was offered too much money. The other guys are all bread and butter players. Colombo rehabbed his nerve-damaged knee with the Bears for years until they gave up on him.

chris harris was the bears best safety and didnt even try to resign him, they kept rashied davis over mark bradley and was clearly the wrong decision because davis dropped everything that came his way and bradley may of been a decent starter this year, and berrian could of contributed a lot more than any of the other bears recievers did. i agree that wade had to go because of his fumbles and dont remember gandy ever doing anything for the bears so that is why i gave you those two.

Rashied's came to camp stronger and faster than ever. I think his added muscle affected his pass-catching ability. His special team play has always been outstanding whereas Bradley did not contribute to special teams.

the point was that it was the wrong decision and if the bears could do it all over again, i guarantee they would of kept bradley over davis, if not keep them both because davis is a good special teams player. special teams is the only thing he is good at and maybe a #4 reciever.
