Better get Simms quick before Minnesota does. Tait can protect his blind side from the RT spot.

Nice time to package Groosman, Smith Turner and Angelo and trade then for 1-1st round, 2- 2nd round draft picks , 2 bags of balls and what ever else we can get for them........Quick before their value goes down!

Same old story, inconsistent offense and questionable offensive line. Bears should have paid more attention to the O line in two prior years drafts. Williams will help when he returns. Hester will get some good runs following catches at WR this year, but Bennett will prove to be a better all-round receiver. Orton should be the QB, less prone to errors than Rex. Forget Jones, keep Forte, Peterson, Garrett, and P.J. Pope at RB.

I like Bennett I hope they play him alot this year.The Defense & special teams looked great! All we need to do is get some consistency on the O-line & Rex will be all set to lead us to a division crown & the play-offs.Although Hanie has played against reserves,he has looked sharp.He might be a better 2nd quarterback than Orton.Rex & hanie are able to throw deep.Orton is a dink & dunk Q.B. Good luck Bears.Take Care Everyone. GOD BLESS!! GO BEARS!! YOUR TRUE FANS ALWAYS SUPPORT YOU!!

Let's hope Earl Bennett can contribute on special teams as a returner becasue it appears he has the 'Lew Barnes/Dez White/Mushin Muhammad' disease, da' drop-zies.

Forget Chris Simms from Tampa Bay,'the left-handed Brian Griese', continue to go with Caleb Hanie as the #3. The better pickup from Tampa Bay would 'just-released' veteran OT Like Pettigout.

With any luck at all, we've just witnessed Grossman's last start as a Bear. Why else would Love give Kyle so little work? He's saving Kyle for the San Fran game and the starting QB role. Why, oh why didn't we sign Faneca when we had the chance?
