Irish_Sweetness Scenario : Trent Richardson is there at 19. Draft him. Franchise Forte. Trade Forte for a 1st and a 2nd. We could still get Konz or Burfict and afford Mario Willams Give up one of our second rd picks and a third, or our two thirds for Brandon Marshall ..... or sign Colston. Draft Stephen Hill.

Do you have any idea how much of an impact forte has on offense? When he was out, we couldn't score more than two touchdowns. Richardson wouldn't fill that role because he is only a poer back. Forte can do it all. Richardson is one dimensional. You want to trade the best running back in the NFL in his prime for two draft picks?

Yeah getting rid of Gorte would be a step backwards for us. We're almost there we finally have a franchise QB, franchise RB, we need a franchise WR. I agree with getting Brandon Marshall bc he can make an instant impact with cutty

Trent Richardson is a top-10 pick. I've only seen two mock drafts that have him out of the first 10 picks, and that's when he goes 11th or 12th. Overall, this will just eliminate all chances of a championship sooner rather than later.

Richardson has pretty good hands like Forte but he won't be there at 19. As for burfict, I hear he is highly overrated and should not be drafted till the late 2nd round. We're not getting Mario Williams. Bowe is getting the franchise tag for sure, I think I'd rather try and go for Stevie Johnson, he's asking for less than 9 mil a year and he's only 26, Cutler will keep his character concerns in check. Get a DE in the first round.

I agree about the t.rich wont be there at nineteen but does stevie johnson alone boost or receiving corps. i dont think so ill take help on the o-line over help on the d-line for the simple fact we have to have a good year on offense and you have to show cutty that your trying to give him help with that contract running up

we need WR badly think about the teams that won the SB they didnt have stellar D , G men had a great D line thats it. What do the Saints, PAckers, and Giants have in common beastly WRs. We need to add at least three. i dont think Bowe will come, because i read Carr is going to hit FA. So we can get Stevie Johnson, Manningham (Meachem), and draft Floyd, This would automatically put the Bears in contention with those WRs there ill be no 8 man fronts for Forte, also they cant double anyone really if they do Manningham and Floyd can beat their 1 on 1s

We just need to get one big name in FA and draft a WR in the 2nd or 3rd and we will be fine. I expect us to go after a FA WR and sign/franchise Forte and that's it. I don't think we're going to spend loads of money. Yes, Stevie Johnson boosts our WR's. I wouldn't mind if we can't get Johnson or bowe the two I want I wouldn't mind giving up a first for Mike Wallace.

Mike Wallace has no size, Cutler wants size the most realistic option in Stevie Johnshon right now although Im not a big fan of his. I think the Bears need three more WRs thats just me, I wouldnt mind seeing Stevie Johnson, Manningham, and Bennet lined up to be honest.

Just imagine Floyd ( stretching the field ) Stevie is a great 10-15 yd receiver, and Manningham adds another verticle threat. Then you can sub Bennett if you need those tough yards.
02/21/2012 - 11:05pm
You underestimate Bennettt, especially with how long him and Cutler have played together, he needs to be on the field at all times. We do need 2 WR's at least but if we get a big name WR in FA then in my opinion i dont want to draft a WR in the first round, its a deep class.
02/22/2012 - 7:47pm
No i dont im just realistic, Floyd, Johnson, and Manningham are better than him as of right now. He is a legit number 3 guy on any team maybe even 2, but if we want to be serious contenders we need more talent at WR.
