What do the Bears need to do first this Thursday?


Since the Blackhawks are now done, we need to quickly shift gears to football. The Bears are on the clock this Thursday with the 11th pick. This year, the Bears have nine draft picks, which is quite a bit. With those many picks, there are zero excuses to not find someone who can help right away. I know it’s the NFL and there are hit and misses, the Bears need to hit big this year.

I have a poll set up below for what you feel the Bears need to do first. Feel free to add your thoughts in the comments’ section.

    Shore up both lines. Skill players can’t do a thing when they’re getting knocked on their asses for 3 hours. And good opposing offenses will tear through shitty d-lines faster than my chainsaw.

    It looks like they are trying to fix the lines through free agency first, which I am not a fan of. Picking up both Bobby Massie and Ted Larsen from the Cardinals looks like it will help. Manny Ramirez (the football player), though? He’s pretty old, but I would guess he would be a backup. I still think they should draft one.

    And I hate to sound like a broken record, but I am still amazed at the stupidity of this coaching staff because of them thinking Kyle Long moving to tackle would be a good idea last year. And now, they moved him back to his natural position.

    Once again, the Bears have NINE picks this year. That’s more than enough to improve this team immensely.

    Q) What’s the over/under on the Bears NOT improving this year?

    A) It’s probably a lock.

    Q) What’s the over/under on how many bad picks in this years draft?

    A) I’m going with 5. Two guys will be marginal to OK. Two will be pretty good. 5 guys will be gone by training camp in 2018.

    As you can see, I’m still a pessimist when it comes to the Bears. And yes Fro, I am one magnificent bastard!

    My frendts, I’m waiting for the Poll “Who do the Bears need to get rid of first?”….

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    Don’t even start with that.

    I went against the grain and picked safety, because I’m tired of the back four getting torched for 300 yards/game and four TDs by 1st/2d yr and journeyman QBs. They need to shore up the defense and grab a couple of wideouts this year. It sucked ass for Cutler/Dickface to start the season with no reliable experience at WR/TE.

    I forgot the draft was this weekend. Time does fly.

    Goddammit, Black Hawks.

    But, hey…both Chicago baseball teams in first place. Good start!

  8. Fro Dog Says:

    Safeties are good. Adrian Amos should fill one of those spots, but just to be on the safe side, drafting another would be nice. The last thing I need to see are cornerbacks and safeties playing like they did when Lovie and Trestman were at the helm on the sidelines.

    All I want is a coach who will tell a player this: “Okay, so if you see a receiver run down the field, don’t just stand there. Go after him.”

    Is that too much to ask for?

  9. chucky Says:

    It was for Lovie Baker and Dr. Death Trestman.

  10. dvxprime Says:


    Sooo…how does the NFL Draft impact y;all in Chicago? And is anybody there planning to attend in person?

  11. Fro Dog Says:

    I was asked by a friend to go Saturday, but I am actually working. I don’t really have much of an interest to go anyway.

    I also get afraid that if I saw Roger Goodell, what I would do. My goal for this year is to stay out of a jail cell, so I can’t punch him in his smug face. I may tell him to go jump onto some CTA tracks or even tell him to go into his garage with the door closed, turn on his car and stay there for about a three hours. I am not sure. Regardless, I would lose my mind, so I am staying away.

  12. chucky Says:

    Fro….I’m guessing that you wouldn’t want to take my chainsaw? Am I correct?

    I’ll personally sharpen the blades and fill it with gas for you.

  13. Fro Dog Says:

    You are correct, sir. The reason for that is because I don’t know how to use a chainsaw. And even if I did, I could never get to your level.

  14. chucky Says:

    Don’t sell yourself short Fro. In just three easy lessons I could have you juggling chainsaws!

  15. genrebuster Says:

    Fro, I’m with you…if I was in a room with Goodell, at the very least I’d be asked to leave….

  16. Fro Dog Says:

    Good deal Chuckster.

    And by the way, the Bears took guard Cody Whitehair from Kansas State. It seems like the “experts” are saying he is ready to play on the left side opposite Kyle Long and that the Bears have fixed their line issues. I’ll believe it when I see Jay Cutler actually standing up during games.

  17. genrebuster Says:

    I guess the Bears really needed to sign Brian Hoyer……thoughts?

  18. Fro Dog Says:

    As we all know, the Chicago Bears are strong believers in the theory “one step forward, two steps back”.

    In this situation, it appears that they may have some good draft picks. But in order to go backwards, they must say “fuck it” on their two other backups (who still, haven’t played in a regular season game) and sign a guy who has been awful for most of his NFL career in about ten years.

    What is the point of having David Fales and Matt Blanchard on the team over the last three years or whatever if they aren’t ever going to play? This screams “Jason Campbell” all over again. Pray to God Cutler doesn’t get his face thrown into the turf. Brian Hoyer is the white Jason Campbell.

  19. dvxprime Says:

    I would have liked to see another WR or even a TE instead of a RB, and maybe one more OL instead of another FS/CB, but I am good with what the draft this year. It looks like the Bears are looking to grow/re-tool their defense.

    Of course, it’s only May. We’ll see how all this shakes out come September.
