    Can't fault him for jumping off a floundering Viking ship to a team with a solid chance to repeat. He will at least get to play in the playoffs. I don't see him dominating or requiring double teams and he may well be a situational rusher. It's better to let a guy go a year early than a year late.

    I LOVED to hate Peppers, and I don't expect that to change...

    I am guessing you are not a glass half empty guy. Your glass has been empty so long it is full of dust.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Peppers is a solid player but he has done nothing great for a few years. The Bears decided he was done, but the Pack is hoping for a little more life. Jared is still a double digit sack guy. Important when you face Rodgers twice a year

    Jared Allen to the Bears

    Jared Allen was overpaid last season at $14 million and a $17 million cap hit. The Bears will get him for about half of what he was earning for the Vikings, which is similar to what the Vikings are paying Everson Griffen this season.

    For that price, why didn't the Vikings and Allen work out a deal? Allen's agent had been looking for $10 million per season, but the reports are that kind of money was not on the table.

    The Bears signed Jared Allen, Willie Young and Lamarr Houston at defensive end. Will these three players rotate, like the Vikings would have done, or will the 300 lbs Houston slide inside to the three technique tackle position?

    Probably because they decided they would rather spend the money on Griffen than Allen. May not end up being the right choice, but the team is obviously on a youth campaign.
