I have been formulating multiple ideas which would make a trade for Brandon Marshall sound reasonable since I started writing on this site.
Anything from trading second-round picks, to working Lance Briggs into some kind of package deal. FINALLY, someone listened.
Okay, so Phil Emery probably didn't come here, read my posts and say, “Hey, great idea, Darren!” But, I have been pounding on this door for two years now, and quite frankly, my mind is spinning at the moment.
The Bears now have the best wide receiver they have EVER had, along with the greatest QB in Chicago Bears’ history. And those two guys just so happened to have their best seasons together.
And the Bears got a steal in my opinion. Two third-round picks over the next two years is much less than I thought he would demand.
With Jay and Marshall tweeting back and forth about "getting the band back together,” maybe it’s not such a surprise, but I am sure Cutler's reaction was close to the same one Bears’ fans had, jumping, yelling, couch-slapping . . . or maybe it was just usual jerk-face . . . hmm . . .
Immediately, I see people on Twitter posting how Marshall’s a “knucklehead.” Well, that is very true. But if there is any coach in the league that could keep Marshall in check, it’s Lovie Smith.
Besides, Vincent Jackson is a knucklehead, too.
Well done, Phil Emery, you're Chicago's favorite GM.
