Yeah, it's hard to argue with your logic! I think Hester MIGHT do a bit better (for that money, he should!!), and if Orton stays healthy, he might look pretty good. However, I just don't see our D making any strides, with Brown gone, Urlacher in decline, etc.
7-9 looks about right to me! Later, Bill!
I think the Bears will still be fun to watch...... There's still plenty of good players,... just not enough to reach the top.
The rest of the NFL Central will be better this year,... so the Bears blew it by not grabbing it last year when it was theirs for the taking.
I still like Orton...... He'll be interesting.......... And as I write this, the Rexologists have about 23 hours left to hope that the Bears will "Bring Back Rex"......( THEN what will they write about ??)
As for Hester ..... He'll be OK...... They'll stop trying to make a Brain Surgeon out of him and just tell him "to run like hell on every route"...... And occasionally, he and Orton will connect...... It'll be fun to watch.
Boy, I hope this year's Draft isn't as disappoining as last year's.
