ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:52 PM) The biggest mistake was made today
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:53 PM) Stanton for $325 Mil
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:53 PM) after he got hit in the face who said he'll even be the same player ever again
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:54 PM) but the Marlins throw $325 million at him like nothing ever happened
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:55 PM) I predict he'll be a shell of himself and in 5 years he will be horrible player and the $ will still be weighing down the Marlins for the remainder of the contract
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 07:06 PM) 3 years ago I would of considered this kind of contract but after what happened to him this season and how he might be shocked to step into the batters box in 2015 is a HUGE risk when a team gives them $325 million
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 07:07 PM) these monster contracts are ridiculous to begin with
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 07:32 PM) So who thinks the JETS will win this Sunday?
a1elbow2.0 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 08:29 PM) Ryan is terrible after byes. 2-9
azjetfan Icon : (17 November 2014 - 10:22 PM) Titans may pull this one out!
azjetfan Icon : (17 November 2014 - 11:17 PM) Or not
azjetfan Icon : (17 November 2014 - 11:18 PM) Mettle burger a 6th rounder played better than Geno or Sanchez
ganggreen2003 Icon : (18 November 2014 - 05:34 PM) all these players that got cut today cause they bitched about touches
ganggreen2003 Icon : (18 November 2014 - 05:35 PM) Ben Tate, LaGarret Blount and Jason Avant
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 November 2014 - 01:37 PM) aldaon smith did too, but he didn't get cut
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (19 November 2014 - 06:51 PM) ALDAON SMITH

Isn't Thomas Jones a free agent after this season?
If so, i think we should give him a look, i really like the way he runs and the Bears will probably be looking to ship him so they can feature Cedric Benson next year..

The Bears can choose to retain him or let him go with out the cap hit. I think they are leaning towards letting him go so that they can make Benson the featured back.

and also although he is a good back i think he is getting close to hitting 30 yrs of age. hes been in the nfl for 7 years if i am correct...we are a young team so i think we need to go after a younger back

If he was a UFA, I would sign him for a 2-3 year deal. He tore it up today. But I rather get a young back like Turner too. But I wouldnt mind signing Thomas, especially since we wouldnt have to give any draft picks up. Then we can let Barlow go and have Thomas/Washington be our duo.

He is a great back but the Bears aren't going to let him go just yet. Buck and Aikman brought up the point I seem to remember that teams nowadays don't just have one every down back, they have a couple backs who contribute and when rushing in tandem, Jones and Benson have done a super job.
A lot of money is invested in Benson but why break up a solid tandem - it's like with Bush and McAllister in NO, they are a great pair of RBs and it would be stupid if they don't keep both in the coming couple of seasons.
In the long term (perhaps another 2 seasons) the Bears may say "we only want to keep one back as it is extremely expensive to keep both" but I doubt they do this after this season or next season. With both in their backfield their offense clicked last night meaning pressure was taken off of Grossman and Rex is a QB who succeeds without having to carry the whole of the offense.
