    I wonder how long it will be before he says they mistreated him.

    Normally I would say that as a joke but in this case I think we could really use him!

    The Bears would be foolish to let him go. Chester, J. Peppers, and dare I say it Mike Tice were big reasons the Bears had a great year. Chester is still a premier third down back, and I would welcome him back in a heartbeat.

    Chester Taylor really had little to do with their success. You actually left out the BIGGEST key to offensive success for them. MIKE MARTZ ... and his CHANGED ways.

    He adjusted his offense to fit a team for the first time instead of trying to make a team fit his offense. He finally found a RB who could catch and run like Faulk with Forte (of course not as good as Faulk) and of course he changed his tune on TE's and was was able to use the supreme talent of Greg Olsen often.

    Chester was not really any better for them than the average backup is for any normal team. Only difference is he cost as much as many team's No. 1.
    Now J. Pep ... he had quite an impact that was obvious because he freed up the LBs to go back to being the intimidating crew they had been in the past.

    But CTay had very little if any impact on the team's success.

    All that said ... I would have no problem bringing him back, but I do not see it even possibly happening. It is likely that his days in the NFL will be numbered if the Bears let him go.

    I think theres alot of truth to that especially when you look at the Bears gave CT 7 mill last year and I think he is due 2 mill for the next year of his contract

    You have got to be kidding right?

    Bring back a 32-year-old running back who totaled 406 yards on 132 touches last season and cut a 24-year-old who totaled 489 yards on only 101 touches?

    Yeah ... that makes a lot of sense.
