    I agree the window is closing but, honestly, I just don't see us as that close. Rather than trying to squeeze a championship through that very narrow window by making relatively expensive, risky signings, I want us to A) clear the cap of older, expensive guys; B) draft well C) and not sign anyone older than 28 or so to a sizeable contract.

    This lack of quality signings doesn't bother me. I'd rather these circus clowns miss small than miss big.

    If this guy is worth 20 pages of discussion I couldn't imagine what would happen if we signed Terrance Cody

    This is the stuff the Marinelli cultists need to get out of their heads.

    If you paid me $50 for the season to get road-graded by opposing OLmen it's not "great value." It's me playing like garbage but at a great price.

    This defense was one of the worst *EVER*, and it was guys like Hayden helping to make it so. It was exactly what a defense would be expected to do if you grabbed a bunch of guys off the street and but a helmet on them. There was no great wizardry of coaching going on here, despite the Dallas media narrative, they really, really did suck. The stats scream that out loud.

    I am good with this move. We need depth on the DL. Like others have said, maybe Marinelli can motivate him.

    They better still go after Melton, and draft Donald though.

    Can someone explain this cult of Marinelli crap to me?

    He has created ONE (1) above average defensive lineman in the past decade.

    You are risking a foam fingered backhand talking like that.

    So you cant explain it then.

    What did the defensive line whisperer do with the rest of the Bears line draft picks or in his time at Detroit?

    I get that he yells and screams a lot, which must be amusing and easily confused for brilliant coaching by some of you.

    You mean sign a legitimate NT?

    It is one thing to sign a space eater. But please do not sign one that failed to be that on his last team desperate for that and expect a hero's welcome.

    I've heard Marinelli wants him at 1T but have seen no actual quotes or legit sources yet. Last year he wanted him at DE.

    That kind of stuff happens every day in the NFL. These aren't boy scouts.

    Doubtful. I expect 4-6 wins this season. Painful but necessary guys. Can't rebuild properly by winning 7-9 games and drafting in the middle of the pack all the time. Purge all those bloated contracts and go young...it's the only real hope at this point.

    Yeah, sure. Defensive tackles across the league threaten their Owner/GM with physical violence and then go plow into a parked truck, while intoxicated, after a teammate died in an accident a few weeks before.

    I believe there are several DL who've had their best seasons under Marinelli, but I also think part of it can be credited to the scheme.
