Its frustrating with all of the injuries this great team has had. This bye week is great because it helps our guys in giving them more time to heal. The lions arent that good of a team. While I dont believe you should ever underestimate a team and every game counts, I believe the Bears should keep all the injured players from playing against the lions. At least nothing more then short appearances to keep them sharp. If they are not feeling 100% we do not need re-aggravation of injuries. We need these players for the harder teams later in the season and playoffs. I know we can take the lions while our injured guys continue to heal. We need as close to as healthy of a team as possible to hand the Titans their first loss of the season.

I would like to see everybody back this week in prepraration for the Titans game the following week. Especially Lloyd because of his big play ability. He needs to get back in there this week and get his feet wet!!!

I just want Tillman back, not that I don't like our other players, but our backup secondary is struggling some (graham looks good, mostly, thus me not as worried about Vasher). Give us Tillman back. He is good in coverage and one of the best ball stripping cornerbacks in the NFL.

Any time that a player with good numbers goes out with an injury it hurts a team. In this case the other receivers have stepped up some to fill the loss. Hester has shown improvement. Getting Lloyd back and his play making capabilities will be a big boost to the passing game.

Maybe with with a new found running game the Bears might make it to and through the playoffs.

For those who keep jawing about Hester's receiving duties is ruining his returning abilities. In my opinion keeping Hester as a returner only and not letting him work his way into the Offense more and making a difference is a HUGE mistake.

Hester has proven he has the ability to become a decent receiver if not a very good one. He may not gain entrance into the HOF, but he might be very good none the less. He has shown that he can catch the ball and then run with it. Hester and Lloyd as receivers would be a good young start of a receiver corps for the Bears.

Keeping Hester as a returner is like being hired at a company and working you way up to a managerial position and your boss sees you sweep out you office and he thinks you do it so well so he demotes you to floor sweeper, with no chance of becoming the manager you once were.

Hester is more valuable as a receiver than a return specialist.

while I believe his return duties are first and much more important.......
When he does take the field on offense, he does get teh secondary's attention.........take that for what it's worth.
He can blow by any corner in teh league when healthy, and that's always a threat.

Definitely need to fake more reverses to him in the run game, and then do hand it off every once in a while..........he had a nice reverse run against philly and I haven't seen it since then......but my memory may be failing me..

It would be great to get Lloyd back as soon as possible. I think the guy is a play-maker and he, Kyle, and the offense click when he's on the field. He'll need some reps in a game situation though if he's gonna be ready for Tenn. I can see this offense getting it done with or without him, and that's been huge. It also helps to build depth, but he obviously brings more to the table than some of his teammates. I wonder how much his current contract plays into the expediency of his return? He seems real vague on his actual status or even the extent of his injury. I'm not saying he' a liar. just evasive. A debate left for another day, just a thought. The more weapon's, the better for Kyle and the offense. The more a defense has to study and adjust to. Here's to hoping that the offense picks up where it left off (along with Lloyd) and brings the running game with it! GO BEARS, BEAR DOWN!!!!
