i can assure you no one other than the casual bandwagon type bears fan is thinking this means instant results.

what it does mean, however, is that they can lighten the workload on forte so he's not out of football by the time he's 30, they can go after a good receiver and actually have someone not named moses moreno, kordell stewart, rick mirer, steve stenstrom, chad hutchinson, johnathan quinn, cade mcnown, jim miller, chris chandler, henry burris, craig krenzell etc etc etc to entice him over and actually throw him the ball

QB situation so pathetic here it's been dubbed where receivers go to die, the act is old now. You thinking they gave up "that much" to win next year is comical. They gave up "that much" because they are banking on him being the QB for years and years to come.
When did i say they needed to win it all?

They DO expect to make playoffs next year no?

If Im a bears fan i like that they are trying to do something to make the team better, I just dont know about the 2 first rounder part. Typically when you give up on 1st rounders (future of team) it means you want to win sooner then later.

I know people will question the trade IF they dont make playoffs .... making it very important to the people that pulled the trigger on this trade, that they make playoffs.

pretty simple.

only people who will start second guessing after one season w/ no playoffs are once again, typical bandwagon idiot chicago fans

"why the **** did we trade for this guy" type guys

they obviously are trying to win now and moving in the right direction, but they gave up as much as they gave up because they are a franchise completely starved for a franchise type quarterback

mcnown was supposed to be it, first round bust

grossman was supposed to be it, he gone

guess they figured instead of continuing to guess wrong on first round QBs, they'd take a guy who can throw 4,000 yards and over 20 TDs on a consistent basis

i mean look at it like this, the bears ALL-TIME record for 400+ passing yard games in a season is 4. 4 lmao, Cutler had 8 last season

Bears record for passing yards in a season like 3800, cutler had over 4,000 last year

just saying he is leaps and bounds head over heels 10 fold better than anything we've ever ever ever had and was a measure they needed to take 100%

it got old every time we played the packers hearing "since favre's streak began, the bears have started 352 different quarterbacks in that span" and blah blah blah

they needed a mainstay and like him or not, cutler can at least throw a football and bears fans are all about the notion of having a quarterback and not a game manager

the formula for winning football games has already been laid out by bellichik, and mcdaniels is trying to follow it as close as possible, and so far he's done a solid job, get rid of the overhyped gunslinger mentality QB with a lot of swagger, and get some draft picks as well as a QB that can operate a game-managing system

gl Bears with your "just wait 4 years from now this trade will pay off" lmao

news flash bear fans, in 4 years the entire landscape of the team could change, they could have a new coach, new owner, new system,

the nfl is a year to year league, and traditional concepts of "time" do not apply

lol there are certain positions you need a mainstay at, and QB is most certainly one of them

don't remember the patriots dumping bledsoe out of the blue one off-season or anything, brady fell into their laps because bledsoe got hurt

situations not even comparable IMO

falcons sucked, picked up a QB, playoffs next season, same w/ ravens

QB the most important position on the field on offense and it's not even close and if you've gone through the revolving door the bears have at this position and had to deal with so much inconsistency believe me you'd be chomping at the bit to FINALLY get a guy who can settle in and be the QB for your team

time absolutely applies to positions like QB and RB, these are the players you build your entire offense around aren't they?

think about it... giants lost plax and turned completely mortal and look like a .500 team

eagles lose dawkins who was their heart and soul and probably the biggest part of their playoff run and with the inability of westbrook to stay healthy all year and andy reid's ability to blow games, they go what, 9-7?

cowboys lose TO and people can say whatever they want but TO is a playmaker and after another season gone to shit who knows how they rebound

just sayin guys just sayin

Philly will win the NFC East

Giants will sneak into their playoffs cause their defense and o-line is solid

Dallas well their Dallas. An overrated team that hasnt won a playoff game since '96

Skins finish 3rd or last.

Washington schedule:

Home: Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, St. Louis, Denver, Kansas City

Away: Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Carolina, Detroit, Oakland, San Diego

Some cupcakes @ home w/ Tampa, St. Louis, Denver & KC and NFC East definitely mortal now

see 9 wins there and 9 might be enough

which is fine, not saying they win all the "cupcake" games by any means

but their schedule outside of their division not real intimidating IMO
