For you Bears fans, here is an article I wrote about the Wide Receiver situation in Chicago as of right now.

Good article, I agree with most of it...Pass on Burress because who knows when that trial is going to get over, but I see him doing some time, and that could result in a suspension from Goodell...I'm on the fence on Marshall, the chemistry between him and Cutler is pretty good, but he has character issues that could be detrimental to the team....I'd take Boldin in a heartbeat, his contract is quite large in terms of money, but you get a great receiver in return

Well, in the poll I made, I voted for Marshall, just because I think he is the more reasonable option as far as money, and then of course he has the chemistry with Cutler. Character issues could be a problem, but they say that about Cutler too.

However, I do think Boldin is the best of the 3, and if he ever leaves Arizona I would only feel comfortable, from a fans perspective, to see him here in Chicago. I got mad love for Anquan! :laugh:

See, we pretty much agree.

Most likely you are right about Marshall...As long as he can refrain from domestic abuse, he will be highly beneficial to the team. He doesn't seem to be a bad character on the field, just off of it...Boldin would be huge for the team, but like you said, his contract is hefty...I would pass on Burress because of the gun charges at the moment


haha yes we do agree, I think if we stick to football, we will agree most of the time

Boldin IS worth the money though, at least I think so, but I just don't think the Bears can really afford him without giving up to much. I guess that gives me something to research. The only reason Arizona did not give him what he wants is because they just dropped a BUNCH of money on Fitzgerald. However, those Cards seem to have some real unity going on, and a ton of momentum. I think Boldin stays put in the desert for now.

Yeah, we don't need any more problems in this city, so if Marshall comes hopefully he can leave the baby mama drama back in the Mile High City, but who knows.

Damn, it's June and we are talking football, thats how you know the baseball season has been bad on both sides of town! :laugh:

we are talking football, but I still like talking baseball, and I am still talking hockey also, but that doesn't seem to be as big of topic here as it is on the blackhawks forums:laugh: who coulda thunk it

Hockey is REALLY gaining momentum in this town...the Hawks have really turned it on the past couple years.

I love the sport, and I played it a lot when I was younger, but I have never been a meat and potatoes stats guy when it comes to the NHL, not like I am with Football, Basketball and Baseball. Following those three, and Boxing, AND MMA is enough....:laugh:

Plus everybody knows I gotta keep up with the Spelling Bee at 3 am on ESPN....:ninja:

Seriously, Baseball stats are the ABSOLUTE WORST....

Especially for anybody trying to get into sports broadcasting. They have so many ridiculous stats, it's crazy. How the hell they even think of some of the comparisons they come up with is just nuts. I know it's easier nowadays with the internet, but Baseball has always been that way.

Oh, and we should keep Havlat...don't break up the team just yet, and he is a part of the core.

I know it's easier nowadays with the internet, but Baseball has always been that way.i'm talking more Home runs, batting average, ERA, RBI's..and maybe even OBP....but WHIP, OPS, Slugging Percentage, etc. those are just ridiculous

The numbers like that are one thing, but it's the historical stats and comparisons that boggle my mind.

For example, when they say something like "team A has not beaten team B in August, on a leap year, with the weather below 79 degrees, since 1840 when Rusty Ladouche was pitching for the team when they were called the Chicago Cardinals..." :blink: :laugh:

btw, your stats are wrong...the first official game wasn't until like 1845 or 1846

That hit was something nasty, but I still think Marty is worth keeping around. I don't think the numbers will be to hard to hammer out, and I tend to have somewhat of a loyalty to players I think are good producers and fan favorites. Maybe that would make me a bad GM, but that's my opinion. :)

i agree, keep marty if he fits into the salary cap...but if he starts asking for 6+ million, it would be better for the future of the team to pass because, if you trade for heatley, he will only make 4 million next year because on july 1 he is owed half by the sens, and no one is gonna trade before then...secondly getting rid of soupy who has the highest salary on the team....the true core of young guys(toews, kane, versteeg) they all go into RFA next year, so you need to think of the raises those guys will be gettiing
