Uh? Bears options dwinleing? Why? Because Asomugha was taged? The last I looked there where 42 CB, 27 OT, 21 DE FA so the best of the best are of the FA boards there are still plenty of option out there that could help our beloved. As far as Boldin he wasn't a FA to begin with. Gee Vaughn yo are going to have to stop having Drinks with David Haugh.

Common now, Cowher put that team together and they may not be struggling but they struggled before he got there.
You ever notice if the Steelers or the Pats have some bum mailing it in and collecting a check, there benched and then gone the next year? On the Bears if you suck or you want more money than your worth we give it to you and let you stick around for a couple of extre years.
Here we go again!Creighton the know it all,so he thinks! get lost you Loser.I see you are posting around here now.Did you finally get run-off the other blogs??.by the way,people dont like you,you are annoying.Your Ego comes from all your insecurities.You Love attention and need to be noticed!you think you are right about everything?? get help & get Lost you Frikken Loser! we need to re-sign Rex Grossman and let him start with some weapons,finally.with Forte and a good receiver or two,Rex will be in the Pro Bowl,guaranteed. and the bears will win the superbowl,this time.

Your kidding right? Your insulting Bill Cowher cause Lovie and Angelo are who compared to him. Bill Cowher a guy who is a lock for the NFL coaching Hall of Fame. You must be speaking of another Bill Cowher. Cause that guy is really good.
Super Bowl XL victory (2005)
2 AFC Championship victories (1995, 2005)
AP NFL Coach of the Year (1992)
2x Sporting News NFL Coach of the Year (1992, 2004)
149-90-1 (regular season record)
12-9 (playoff record)
161-99-1 (overall record)
Not to mention this last Steeler team was pretty much his team.
Winning%.623
Oh and he was not with the Steelers for 20 years, he was with them for 15 years.
The Steelers had missed the playoffs 6 out of 7 times over the 7 years prior to Cowher. Cowher is only the second coach in NFL history to lead his team to the playoffs in each of his first six seasons as head coach, joining Pro Football Hall of Fame member Paul Brown. That Paul Brown another hack compared to Lovie.
In CowherÂ’s 15 seasons, the Steelers captured eight division titles, earned ten postseason playoff berths, played in 21 playoff games, advanced to six AFC Championship games and made two Super Bowl appearances. He is one of only six coaches in NFL history to claim at least seven division titles. It has become an article of faith among NFL pundits that the Steelers do not have a bad team two years in a row. At the conclusion of the 2006 season, the Pittsburgh Steelers had the best record of any team in the National Football League since Cowher was hired as head coach.
Yep that Cowher what a looser, don't want a coach like that.
Have Bear fans really gotten to the point that they are so stupid that they bash some the best coaches in NFL history rather than admit they were wrong about Lovie.
In Cohwer's first five season his team finished first in the division 4 times and 2nd once. The Year before he got there the Steelers were 6-10
Lovie on the other hand has finished 4th, 1st, 1st, 4th, 2nd. Win%.563 record 45-35. Wow two last placed finishes stop presses, the man is a legend and two playoff apperances in 5 years. Wow. Wow George Halas is that you? Oh wait Halas was just another Hack compared to Lovie.
Can't believe Bears fans are ragging on Cowher. What a joke.
I missed the part where I said Bill Cowher wasn't a good coach. Good coach. Not great like a Bill Walsh for instance. George Halas won a grand total of 1 title after the late 40's when he wasn't the de facto commissioner of the league. Take the time to learn some history before you spout off. And relax.

Just in:

Boldin was quoted as saying he DOES NOT want to be a Giant. They only go to the Super Bowl once every 18 years.

Hey chumps, how is Dan Orlovsky? Why draft a skill position player when you can get a 7th DB? Or maybe you need 4 more 7th round picks so you can cut them in training camp. Have fun with a defensive end this year.
