    lol, the bears would break the bank for a defensive player(yes, a very good one) instead of trying to make the offense not the worst in the league. Angelo, I love you.

    We can laugh about them all we want.

    But they swept us last year because of that tenacious D.

    good move by them but Trom is right to the extent that they need some sort of offense. QB, WR, RB, and even OL are all major needs for them. TE seems to be the only offensive position they got nailed down and the NFC is so much better than it was just two seasons ago that you can't win with strictly defense no more or Dallas, Green Bay, and New York will make you pay.

    They definitely did not break the bank. Briggs got $12 million guaranteed. $6 million a year is not much for arguable the best Weakside linebacker in the league.

    But you're completely right. I can't believe the Bears didn't try to give up a first for Derek Anderson and then give him Brigg's contract.

    They also let Berrian go.

    Good move for the Bears. I'd glady take Briggs for that contract.
