kjl1977 I hear comparisons to Urlacher and Clay Matthews. Below are the combine stats for all 3 players.

Just looking at the stats, he's similar to Urlacher in size, heavier than Matthews. 40 time is slower than Lach, but close to Matthews. Bench is lower than both, as is vert. Broad jump is close. He gets crapped on by both Lach and Clay in the shuttle and the 3Cone. So, just based on pure combine-measured athleticism, I can't really get too high on this guy. But Emery did talk alot about his instincts. Let's hope those make him stand out more.

The thing I like about Emery is that he didn't mention a single combine stat about him. It was all detailed information on what kind of football player he is. Emery talks about movement, fluidity, high motor and most of all; instincts. You can tell he did his homework with the tape and it gives me confidence that Emery knows what he is doing.

Lach was the #9 pick overall for a reason. McClellin will be an immediate contributor, but he also has a very high ceiling as he conditions for his role at LDE and gets some years under his belt. Going to trust in Emery till he takes a snap in the regular season.

kjl1977 It just blows my F'ing mind that Angelo is going to get YET ANOTHER pass.

I agree, if this was any another job he would have been fired years ago. He must know some beep dark secret about the organization thats able to keep him around.

I agree the only reason he has been gettin passes over the years is because coach Lovie has been doing such a good job over the years with the limited talent and lack of weapons on offense that angelo has presented. Get this idiot of a GM and get Lovie some real offensive weapons #BearDown

kjl1977 I would keep Lovie. Honestly, the guy has done his best with what he's been given. You need to get a real OC though, Martz checked out a while ago. Get someone who jives with Cutler, because he's your franchise. But yeah, Phillips and Angelo should go, along with their cronies.

You do realize was on pace to have over 3800 yds 25 tds and 10 ints this season this is definitely the best season of any Bears QB. We were 7-3 until Cutler got hurt we were fine we would have fun the table if injuries to our best players didnt happen dude. dont dog Martz to much although he does get reckless at time do you remember Ron Turner's offense? that was horrible.

kjl1977 Weak backup QB - Angelo, Weak WR core - Angelo, Weak/cobbled-together O Line - Angelo, Weak secondary - Angelo. And all these issues have been around for most of his tenure. We had a couple decent lines thanks to some good free agent pickups, but virtually no to little growth through the draft.
kjl1977 Every single one of the Bears' issues lands in Angelo's lap. In his decade as GM, the number of good picks/trades/moves he has made can be counted on one hand: Cutler, Peppers, Briggs, Forte. Did I miss anyone? I don't really count Harris because he lived up to his injury prone stigma.
kjl1977 I think my favorite part of this whole 4 game debacle is exactly how much bad QBing the coaching staff had to see from Hanie to finally pull the plug. Then you throw in poor McCown at the end of a blowout, when the other team can just tee him up. But let's give credit where credit is due. Angelo.
kjl1977 Ugh. That game was really rough to watch. It was like we went back in time to the Grossman (Not even Orton) era. My only fear is that this is what Hanie is - he'll make some plays, but he'll make more costly mistakes. He did it in the NFC title game, he did it against the Raiders.

If he does it against the Chiefs, I think we have a pattern.
11/28/2011 - 7:52am
I think you might be right. That first int he threw, he was running to his right and made a terrible throw. Then, in the third quarter, he did the same thing! It didn't get picked off, but he can't make those throws. The worst thing about it is that we had a good running game, but had to abandon it to catch up.
11/28/2011 - 8:12am
But he showed that he can play well. 11- 21 170 and 1td in the second half. That's pretty good...
11/28/2011 - 8:24am
He seems to really get happy feet in the pocket and take his eyes off his receivers but I think he can get better. The Chiefs have a nice defense too so next Sunday ain't no picnic.
11/28/2011 - 1:06pm
He does have a tendency to roll to his right when there's pressure. If the chiefs are smart, they'll make him scramble to the left. Then we're in trouble. But have you seen theif offense? No jamal charles or matt cassel. I would't be surprised if they were shutout. Our D will have a nice time against these guys. Bears win, 20-6
11/28/2011 - 4:22pm
The Chiefs offense is bad. Win the turnover battle and you win

kjl1977 Kyle F'n Orton. :) My gut says the Bears don't take him(if they even get a shot at him) for two reasons: 1. Price. 2. It would effectively crush young Caleb's confidence if they brought back a former starter to sit behind him.
kjl1977 Sounds insane, but I'm actually looking forward to seeing what Hanie can do. NO, I do not want him over Cutler, but under the circumstances I feel a lot better with him under center than some old (and I mean OLD) friend of Martz's. :)
kjl1977 "Caleb is our quarterback." Well, two things on the bright side - our remaining schedule is about as good as you could ask for (well, no Indy, but still) and Cutler may be able to make it back for the playoffs. Bottom line is that the Bears will need to rediscover the running game.
