ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:46 PM) we will be wasting talent
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:46 PM) and the worst thing in life is WASTED TALENT!!! - A BRONX TALE
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:08 PM) One of the most positive things that this Marshall signing brings is Amaro getting more balls thrown to him
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:08 PM) and we'll finally have legitimate size at WR in the redzone
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:08 PM) but still the biggest issue is QB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:09 PM) we can get monsters at WR but without a QB to throw them the ball, it's a waste of talent
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 04:30 PM) Or maybe its a waste of a QB with no WRs to throw to.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 04:53 PM) Or anyone to block for him
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 05:17 PM) fire em all
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:37 PM) Get pumped that we have actual wr talent now
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:25 PM) being that the JETS haven't had a WR go over 1,000 yards since 2007 when J-CO did it, is pretty indicative how bad our WR corps and subsequently our QB play has been
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:27 PM) and that was Chad's last year as a NEW YORK JET
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:35 PM) and as far as Harris getting re-signed the only good thing is he is not going to end up with the bills other than that...he's not worth 15 mil guaranteed

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.
