    "A very talented team"

    Too bad we don't use it effectively on the offensive side of the ball. We need to work to our players strengths, not implement brand new things like Childress did last year, but I guess there is nothing we could do about that now, so, whatever we build on what we have.

    Draft Calvin Johnson.

    "A lot of people probably don't realize (this) because it didn't reflect in our record this year, but I honestly believe this is a very talented team," he said



    actually this years team has a ton more talent than last years, and still managed to finish worse
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    We are a very talented team.
    It's just that certain positions on the field have more impact than others and we are lacking at those spots.

    Individual talent does not automatically add to team talent.
    We brought in a lot of good players, but it takes time to get them to start working as a cohesive unit.
    The left side of the OL is an example.
    They were working much better toward the end of the season than they were at the beginning.

    That being said, I wish we would finished stronger.
    That would make me more optimistic for next season.
    Hopefully we are only a couple of key position upgrades to giving the Bears a legitimate challenge next year.

    That being said, there certainly were new coaching staffs who started out with less talent than we had and still got their teams working together better than Childress did. Look at Green Bay,who we all thought was going to be one of the worst teams in years with all of the losses and their new head coach, but McCarthy got his team inspired to work together and they beat the Childress led team twice. Mangini got the Jets playing well enough to beat the Pats once and they manhandled the Childress led team and left him looking dazed and confused on the sideline. I guess we can say that he was able to beat Detroit for what that is worth. I can only imagine if we had played the perennially pathetic saints and their new Coach how we would have done. IMO these guys have a better eye for talent or at least know how to get that talent to work together,which in the end is the key.

    "Nose tackle Pat Williams is expected to be named to the NFC Pro Bowl team as the injury replacement for the Bears' Tommie Harris in the coming days. "




    Good to hear Phat Pat is getting a "little" respect.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    We've known since the rosters were announced that Pat Williams was the first alternate.
    Since Tommie Harris is on IR, I'm surprised the announcement hasn't been made yet.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Until Harris officially withdraws from the probowl they can't make Pat the official replacement, and with Harris already knowing that Pat is the replacement for him and the
    bad blood between Pat and the Bear's I am sure he will delay it as long as he can.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
