Based on production in the past 3 seasons (if you can call it that) and his recent run in with the law, it looks more and more as though Matt Fotre will be the RB that Detroit will face from Chicago this year. With an improved line adding youth in Williams, a player the Lions liked, and their Defense healthy -- Chicago could be more trouble for the Lions than they were in their SB hangover year last season. Thankfully, they still have Rex Grossman and Kyle Ortman as their QB's. Where, and for a second there I was worried. And lets see...who is Chicago throwing to again? Marty Who? Booker? He's not retired?
In all seriousness, my Boss-Man (the huge Chicago Bears Fan) was happy with all but one point of the Bears' draft: No QB. There were some good QB's there in the 4th even that they could have taken a flier on. He was okay with Williams and Forte, although he thinks that they took him a bit high in the 2nd and could have used more youth to inject into the D...or a WR who can run and catch.
Still, looks as though the NFC North will be one tough division next season. Thank goodness that Lions have the best QB in the division. Unless you'd rather have Rodgers, Grossman or Jackson under center? Yeah. Stanton will actually learn from the bench as the number 2 this season and make some in game appearances if the Lions can rack up a lead for a change and are running out the clock.
Your thoughts on the Bears' draft and off season thus far?? Nobsnubber had some good eval on an earlier blog, but I can't remember which one. I'm sure you've all read all the comments and can locate...or maybe he'll be nice and re-post it here.
