In today's Chicago Tribune, "Big" Brad Briggs wrote yet another "compelling" article which disclosed the latest activity in the Bears Front Office (see article).
Offensive Line coach Mike Tice was bared from talking to the Tennessee Titans about a position as Offensive Coordinator. Tice was then given a new deal which locks him up through season 2012. There were other coaches that were given new deals as well. Those individuals were: LB Coach Bob Babich, RB Coach Tim Spencer, and DB Coach Jon Hoke.
Truthfully it's been a while since we've seen the Bear front office take such an "aggressive" approach to keeping worthy and talented personnel on the payroll. This is "very" refreshing. Is it possible that the front office will culminate these moves with more moves to further "solidify" our roster of players???
We are still in need of: a pass rushing OLB, a swift DE to compliment Peppers (like Dent did for Dan "Danimal" Hampton. We also need a "stud" Offensive Tackle, a Safety, and a "solid" 3rd QB (Hanie is a "perfect" fit for the #2 spot). A formidable "deep" threat WR would be nice (Fantuz seems to be more of a possession type WR). Johnny Knox has drawn some fire recently from Marshall Faulk regarding the "poor" routes he runs on an infrequent basis. Perhaps one of several "free-agent" WRs (like Braylon Edwards, Santana Moss, Vincent Jackson, and Plaxico Burress just to name a few), provide some solutions to that weak area.
Truthfully, Moss or Edwards would be a good fit in our offense. The others bring a bit "too-much" baggage. Vincent Jackson would not be bad either, even though I would "prefer" the aforementioned.
WHAT DO YOU SAY BEAR FANS????
