Says alot about your front office when you have a team full of holes and all they can boast about is picking up a defensive line coach

NINE Million bucks over 3 years ??

The Browns obviously haven't watched St. Clair play as much as we did !

They're out of their gourds.

THe Bears are close, to the very bottom of the NFC!

Jerry the trainee has given the season ticket holders the chance to watch him fumble and stumble around for another year! OL, DL, WR, S,Back up QB. Angelo get dizzy thinking about the holes!

The Bears have way too many holes for a stinking trainee like Angelo and the big BS'er Lovie the Mope in training!

3-4 wins! Think about losing to Detroit! Yikes!

Bill, the Browns may be crazy for that contract, but we're left without a starting left tackle.

I doubt St. Clair will see the end of that contract. For nine mil. I'm glad the Bears passed. Sure, good for St. Clair and his family but REALLY. Overpay for a just about over-the-hill veteran or #1 offensive tackle pick in the draft. That's just about what it comes down to this year.

But that's okay. I have absolutely no understanding of football because I never played any competitive sport in my life. I'm a no clue idiot and I'm going to spout off whatever my stupid fingers can put down.

Perhaps...... But, for once, I think the Bears did the right thing this time.

Damn, I haven't said THAT in a long time !

I came across the 2008 Pre-Draft blurb on OT Chris Williams. If he's fully recovered from the back surgery, and lives up to half of the expectations, we'll have a good starting point for OL, and things won't be quite as bleak.

These guys are done-Some one tell me what they have that is any good at all- No D AND no O--They will need to start over in 2010- at least they will draft high but that won't mean anything unless Mr A and Mr S are gone too

We just need to seal up a quality backup tackle. Not necessarily a starter. Based off they way Chicago is going about the O line, it's pretty safe to assume that they're gonna draft a right tackle with their first pick. Probably a WR with their second. Let's just hope Nicks or Robiskie is still there when the second pick comes around. Both of their stock has risen considerably...

What hasn't made much news is the fact that Zack Bowman will also compete for the FS position. He's a lot better than Steltz... Prior to his 2 knee injuries in college, he was a first round DB draft prospect. Here's hoping he stays healthy in `09.

Truth, the Bears had one in name only with St. Clair. He was a human turnstile. Wonder what Angelo will do to compensate for this not-tragic loss.

Look on the bright side - we lost nothing of any value. Another bonus - this opens a roster spot forcing Angelo to do SOMETHING. Will the castoff he brings in be any better than St. Clair? Hard to see him being any worse.

Bowman has had 2 knee operations? If that is true that fits right in with Jerry's plan on draft day.Save money because no one else will look at them.

One question. Who backs up Williams if his back doesn't hold up?

Trash in trash out. Looks like the McCaaskey's had vested interest in the sanitation industry.

Seems like the bears are always trying to get a lot of talent for close to nothing. the market sucks but good players will still get paid well. so suck it up, and pay out some cash, stop being cheap. not every low paid rookie or free agent will be a devin hester
