Hmm, let's see. The Chicago Bears ranked #2 in defense last year. The offense ranked #29. If you think they'd use the draft to shore up an offense (that is only better than one team), you'd be wrong. No, the Bears used all of their picks for defensive players and special teams. Way to go guys. Can't wait to watch exciting Bears football.
Seriously, the Bears must have such a dim view of their offense that they feel the defense must shut out the opponent each week. Pathetic. Why I watch them every week is beyond me.
I grew up watching the Bears every Sunday with my father. Back when the showed the marching bands at half-time. When I went to college I was forced for the two years I lived in the dorms to watch the Packers because I was outvoted by the numerous in-staters. The last two years I went to a local pub that showed the Bears on satellite and split time rooting for the Bears and Packers.
At that time, the rule was that I rooted for both teams to win, but the Bears in head to head games. During the beginning of the Wanny/McCaskey years I flipped so that I rooted for both teams but the Pack in head to head. As Wanny/McCaskey wore on I actively rooted for the Bears to lose so they would get fired. Prayers answered. Gone.
I went back to rooting for both with the Bears in head to head. Now, after this draft, I'm back to rooting for both with the Pack in head to head. Not because of Lovie Smith, but Angelo (the general manager) needs to go. He is clueless.
Meanwhile, in the land of cheese, they snagged OSU linebacker A.J. Hawk. Perfect pick. On that note, major congrats to OSU for placing five players in the first round. Bummer that they are losing that many high quality players, but still, gotta be good for recruiting.
I'm just trying to be nice. I'm this/close to actively rooting against the Bears so that Angelo gets shit-canned. Asshat.
Oh I know, when Rex Grossman comes back....right after a healthy Wood and Prior lead the Cubs to the World Series...ugh.
