Can we hire a HC that can actually make adjustments in the 2nd half?

Ok now Floyd is hurt. My marginal interest in Bears football the rest of this season pretty much gone.

Its crazy how many injuries this team has not. Not that it would have mattered ultimately

they were in danger of ruining their draft position and made an adjustment that prevented that in second half.

I find it rather delightful. Root against football and you'll feel much better.

This is insane....if that Cutler news is true, starting players going into the season (i think) that will be out next week

QB - Cutler
WR1 - Jeffery
WR2 - White
OG - Long
OG - Sitton
OT - Massie
C - Grasu
TE - Miller

CB - Fuller
NT - Goldman
LB - Houston
LB - Freeman
Edit:
LB - Floyd most likely
I can't even remember who the bears starting secondary guys are so many theres someone missing there too.

I fully expect them to attempt to make something up after next week's game but because of their delay Howard will get Johnny Knox'd and then proceed to be suspended for PEDs.

Can we get the best of the rest and have them suit up to help Cleveland win 3 games?

This is actually awesome. With these injuries I can only see maybe 1 more win at most, against SF and even that is very iffy at this point. The other 5 teams are all in the mix for playoff spots. 3-13 or 2-14 is probably likely which will almost certainly mean a top 3 pick.

So now we can bitch about the Bears management blowing high draft picks instead of the Bears players blowing the chances of a high draft pick with meaningless wins.

Ouch. With the way he plays and relies on mobility and throwing at weird angles, that may be essentially a career ender for him.

FWIW it sounds like he played through it on Sunday and he made a few very strong throws on that final drive.

Not that that necessarily says anything about the long term impact of the injury.

as someone who has lived through a torn labrum and one that's been surgically fixed... I feel for the guy. it sucks. the rehab from that was by far the most painful couple of months ever. it hurt so bad I vowed to never get my other one fixed so I just deal with that pain

it happened to me when I played CF so I didn't have to frequently make hard throws. I used to tell teammates I was good for 1 throw a game so I had to make it a really good one. then I'd turn my back to the field and cry like a little baby. it usually took a solid 2-3 minutes to fully regain feeling throughout my arm and hand
