I wish them all success, but wish we had three can't miss players. Three can't miss are better than nine "who're these guys" any day.

Laughable...the Bears blew it. Only millionaires can sqeeze a quarter so tight that the eagle sreams! Two chanpionships in 46 years...once the gold standard of the NFL...most wins all time, most championships, most NFL Hall of Famers in Canton. Now, these cheap, greedy, passionless losers don't care about winning. Virginia...PLEASE sell the team to someome that cares. Jerry Angelo...you are a joke and should be ashamed (not that that means much anymore in our screwed up society, but think about it). Bears coaches; you're clearly overrated and better start learning the game (Lovie, that loss to the Falcon's last year was unforgiveable...you're a PRO?). I'll never understand what goes on in the head's of these idiots. Bear's fan's...WAKE UP...we're ALL being scammed! Stop giving Virginia your money until things really change.

hey Greg's from Ohio what more can i say? No Pro teams there! the Bears always do well in the late rounds of the draft and we already got the best 1st round pick anyway, now we put the puzzle together to see what Jay can do for us in Chi-Town. And by the way Des watch your back theres anew TightEnd in the mix

not sure how good these guys are, but can't disagree with the positions that the Bears drafted. Maybe an O-lineman would have been a little better. Position-wise, this does look pretty good though.

I understand the discipline with going after talent rather than filling a need but I would have liked to see them go after a safety to develop into Mike Brown's place. He's going to be sorely missed. And we should have looked at linebacker. Our core is going to get weaker with Brigg's the only real deal in my eyes. i was never a true believer in Hunter. I hope this works out well.

The Bears drafted nine projects. For a 9-7 team in a divison where everyone improved this is not good.

This class will surprise alot of Bear fans. I know its not a class filled with big names but these players will fit into the Bears scheme sooner than later. Gilbert is a beast and along with Marcus Harrison the future at DT looks good. Harris and Dvoracek have not been healthy these guys will make the DT rotation solid.

Don't be surprise if Iglesias hands Rasheid Davis his walking papers. The only thing he has in common with Mark Bradley is they both went to OU. This guy is the reason that Sam Bradford won the Heisman. Look out for Johnny Knox as well. I watched tape on this guy and he is a speedster with good hands.

I agree,nice post Damani. This really was a good Draft,in my opinion. This was a very,very good offseason overall. We signed free agents Orlando Pace,Omiyale,Sheffer To solidify the O-line! We got help at safety in Bullocks. Our first draft pick netted Jay Cutler for our Franchise Q.B. We already have our young franchise R.B in Forte. Pass rush was a concern,so we added two very good players on the D-line. We Got Receivers,three good promising ones. We also got a good corner in D.J Moore. The Safety class wasnt good this year anyway. There should be some players released in final cuts in June. The Bears Overall,have done an Outstanding job this offseason,they really have. I cant wait to get going and get to some Football. Take care. Bear Down. Go Bears,2009 Division Champs!

With the attention paid to the d-line, along with the decline in production from Harris, I can't help but wonder if there may be a trade coming for a receiver? Boldin for Harris? Sounds good to me....

You are a freakin idiot. This has got to be one of the Bears BEST off seasons in many many years. The only one I think better was the year we drafted Sayers and Butkus. I have no idea where you come from, what your drinking or what your smoking. Whatever it is, I want some.

I bet you went to one of those right-wing tea parties because you seem to be clueless.

Forget Boldin - now that the Browns drafted Robiskie & Masowhatshisname, the Bears need to make a play for Braylon Edwards! Make it happen Angelo!!!!!
