Lots of good discussion on Oline.

Personally I think we are improving and 1 or 2 pieces and we could really be set for quite awhile. 

Webb struggled but don't forget he is young and gaining experience.  I do think either drafting an LT high or bring in QUALITY LT would be wise...I kind of lean toward drafting.

Really think we need to draft an OG with one of either our 2nd or 3rd round (2) picks. 

I think Louis (ROG) and Carimi (ROT) are the right side of the line next year.  I think Garza stays at C.  I think that Spencer becomes backup C/OG.  Chris Williams battles it out with rookie OG on left side for starter/backup spots.  Rookie or FA LT; with Webb as backup swing tackle. 

I personal think it will be 1st round Rookie LT: Williams: Garza: Louis: Carimi

With Rookie OG, Spencer and Webb as backups.  That would be a nice Oline I believe.

The 2nd round pick would be CB, the other 3rd would be LB, 4th S.

Under this scenario FA #1 WR's is a must.  I personally would like to see that person be Dwayne Bowe or Marques Colston.

And here we go, the sum of all fears.  What a bunch of sockcuckers.  George looks like a parody of a mad englishman.  End of days boys, end of days.

Hard to believe that the Bears O-line may go from their biggest weakness to biggest strength in one year.  But getting rid of Angelo gives me hope.

Draft or sign a top notch FA LT and the Bears are set on the O-line.

Draft or preferably sign a proven stud #1 WR in FA and the O is good to go.

Use the rest of the draft and FA to fill in holes and provide depth.

If Ruskell winds up the GM you can kiss your hopes goodbye as far as improving the Bears' OL or WR talent.

Those two spots were perennial points of embarrassment and failure in Seattle while he was running the show out there. 

He let the 2nd best O-Lineman in team history (Steve Hutchinson) walk in the prime of his career, and never came close to replacing him. He ridiculously overpaid the Patriots for Deion Branch, who promptly busted.  He left them saddled with Matt Hasselbeck at QB for years, and never even attempted to replace Shaun Alexander even though was plenty of advance warning that Alexander's best days were done.

All he does is draft undersized defensive players, especially DL.  And even those guys don't pan out. Sound like anyone we know?

In short, Tim Ruskell is an imbecile and especially when it comes to drafting offense. I may very well forego watching the draft this year if Ruskell is making the picks.

I will be pissed if Ruskell is named GM.

He is worse then the guy they just fired.  Seriously if this is the plan they should of just kept Angelo and fired the whole bunch next year.  It would of saved them money also.

Pretty much anyone who knows the workings of Halas Hall could have predicted how this would all go down.

Tice would be the OC, and Ruskell the GM.  The path of least resistance (and expense) all around.

Kind of looking that way, isn't it?

When they hired Tice as OC then we all know who the GM was next in waiting.  Too obvious.

Or quite possibly there isn't anybody even interested in interviewing for the damn job...except Ruskell.

Somebody has to be interested.  Really.  Even accepting Lovie.  Look, Angelo accepted Jauron.  Right????

If Ruskell gets the job, I am going to start following another team.  Really.  That is just depressing.

I am pulling for either team so it is win/win.  The Lions our division, plus I feel sorry for them for being so bad for so long.  The Saints, Drew Brees et al, they just do a great job.  Plus I love visiting NOLA.  I love watching a game where you can root for both teams.  LOL
