ColtZero Here what I think all the Bears options are: Acquire either Bowe, Meachem or Colston in Free Agency. Draft a WR in first or second round like Floyd, Rueben Randle, Dwight Jones or Stephen hill are all good choices.And IF the bears attempt a trade for Marshall, they should trade their 2 3rd rnd picks

I think they should try and get Vincent Jackson, he's pricey but is young so in the long term he's perfect. If not Vjax bowe is good but trading for Marshall would be the best. They should draft for defense, that's our strength and we should fortify it.

Honestly, Vincent Jackson isn't that good in my eyes. He can be a bit streaky at times. And as of now in his career, his peak has passed and can only lessen his production from here on out. And I feel that a receiver like bowe or Colston would be better teachers/mentors for the other recievers on our roster.

V. Jackson isnt worth it in my eyes, as a Bears fan living in a family of Chargers fan. Also, for the third or fourth time, the olphins would be complete morons to trade Marshall for anything less than a 1st round pick or a 2nd and same year late round pick; it's a dream to think two third round picks is enough.

Yes, it's unlikely but it could be possible. If you look in 99' the rams traded a second and fifth round pick for Marshall Faulk. It all depends on the quality in the draft and if the Dolphins think they can pick up good players. Who knows they may think that a a couple of 3rds and possibly another pick would be worth it to get Marshall out of their hands. I mean even the Bears traded Olson away for a 3rd round pick. Though he lacked toughness and solid blocking skills, he did have the best hands on the team. So you never know how Emery can work his magic.

A 2nd round pick's "value" is more than double that of a 3rd round pick based on the draft value chart; furthermore, our two third round picks together are worth only a mid 2nd round pick. I just can't see a team trading a player who has had five consecutive 1k-recieving yard seasons for only a mid-round pick. If Emery chooses to pursue a trade and the Dolphins are willing to listen to offers, I really hope he can talk the Dolphins out of wanting anything more than a 2nd round pick plus a later pick.

I would have to disagree with the 3rd round pick value. Depending on the position you can find a lot of valuable players in the 3rd or even 4th round, such as DB's and WR's since thats when majority of them get drafted. But I can only see a trade for Marshall taking place either on or just before Draft day. The point is, I agree with you that it LIKELY wont happen, but their is a small possibility, all depends on how the dice roll ya know?

The Bears need a solid group of WRs so basically we need to add good depth because now we have recievers that can get maybe 500-700 yds a season but we need the type of recievers that can get close to 1000, so basically acquire a solid WR (ie. Meachem, Manningham, or Bowe). Then we can draft a WR i wouldnt with the 19th pick though. We should be able to get a solid WR in the second round. That would give Bennett, The FA WR, the draft choice, Knox (who had a solid year til he got injured) thats a good solid group.

We dont need to overppay VJax or Cholston, can address the TE position with that money. Macellus Bennet from Dallas is a FA and also Fred Davis from Washington they can excell with CUtler

We should go all-in for Mario Williams and make a trade for AMrshall happen. THe rest will follow. No way we need to bust our draft by going after a receiver in rd 1. Stephen Hill should be there in the third.

Mario Williams is 28 years old we might get 3-4 years if we start building a young nucleus our pass rush will be fine. But if the BEars do that move I wouldnt be against it at all. I rather have a deep team, We need a #1 WR , and one more complementory one if we want a good shot at the SB. We should draft a WR and develop him (Floyd would really be a good choice if he had a good mentor, maybe Bowe). That could give us Bowe, Floyd, and Bennett, thats a really good WR core right there.
02/17/2012 - 12:33pm
As for D, we can definitely add depth through the draft. The Bears are known for finding defensive jems in the later rounds.
02/17/2012 - 12:35pm
Drafting a WR in the first that may not be able to transition to the pro game will bust our draft. Colston could do it or MArshall if we trade for him.
