Bears gave up a 3rd in '12 and a 3rd in '13.

I think its a good move for the Bears.

Marshall with Cutler was huuuuge, before.

Two 3rds for a potential top 10 WR.

Now see if Bears land Mario -- all of a sudden Pack has some competition.

If Mario leaves, please go to the Bears or the Bucs. He needs to get out of the AFC and I can really see him signing with the Patriots as the rich always get richer.

Two thoughts:

LOVE Marshall and Cutler together. That's bad ass.

And what if this paves the way for Manning and Wayne to go to Miami? Maybe they're clearing space and money for those two.

We would probably have to cut the other half of our offensive line just take on his contract.

I assumed we're planning on playing without an o-line.

Nice move for the Bears. That's if Mike 'Meathead' Tice is going to be worth a poop as an OC

That is a great move for da Bears. They are really trying to keep pace in that division and adding Marshall is going to help.

Great move for the Bears. Gives them flexibility with their 1st round pick too. Don't know how they got Miami to part with him for nothing higher than a 3rd.

Bad move by Miami. They needed to hold onto him, but if you're going to give him up at least get a 2nd and a 3rd.

I think this isn't good for their Peyton Manning drive too unless they went after Wayne or something.

Just think of the ransom Atlanta gave up for Julio Jones.

I heard the Bears may be interested in Winston as well.

He could go from being the worst guy on the best line in football to the best guy on the worst line.

I bet Jay Cutler would be extatic to have a run blocking tackle who gets caught out in the passing game given the lack of pass pro Chicago scheme.

what the hell is extatic??


j/k

I'm not a Winston fan, I've said this repeatedly. However, as far as his pass blocking goes.... as long as he isn't having to deal with fast outside rushers like CM III or Cliff Avril, he'll be ok. He can handle the big power guys pretty well.

CM III & Cliff Avril would only play against him 4 times a year, so it isn't that bad.
