    I'm not being wishy-washy here, but I actually agree somewhat with both of you. We didn't give up 100+ yards to anyone but the yards per catch was ridiculously high in a lot of cases. Our back-ups did get better as the season progressed, but I think that was partly due to adjustments Crennel made to give them help.

    Hopefully, they continue to improve this year, but I still think it would be a good idea to add depth. I wouldn't feel bad if Sabby lost his roster spot to a better player.

    Did you not see the part in my post that metioned that just about every game, the opponents leading reciever, or close to leading reciever was their TE's or a slot reciever...Not their #1WR's..Our corners can shut down just about any receiver in the NFL (we will see with Routt)

    But I am saying that teams knew our weakness on D was our safety play, and covering TE's, and they attacked it. Don't get me wrong, I think our Defense is the strength of our team, but I do feel we need to do something about our coverage on TE's and add safety depth, and coverage LB depth.

    just because a TE doesn't have a 100+ yd receiving day doesn't mean he didn't have a good game...They took advantage of a weakness of our defense, and that's the impact it has on the games.

    Bears sign ex-Trader RB Michael Bush.

    Chicago Bears Sign Michael Bush; Matt Forte Not Happy About It

    This is the third year in a row the Bears have signed a solid backup for Forte. In 2010 it was Chester Taylor. Last year it was Marion Barber. (he will probably be released).

    Forte has already threatened to hold out if they can't get a deal signed ...

    Marion Barber, might not be a bad back to add here... Not that he's what he once was in dallas, but he can pound it, and catch out of the backfield similar to Hillis.

    Couldn't complain about having him as a 3rd rb, although I think it would be more likely to draft a guy like Vick Balard in the 4th-5th. Wouldn't cause issues if the guy had to be on the practice squad, plus he is younger and fresher legs...

    He (Barber) was good as a back-up for the Bears. When Forte got hurt and he had to be the primary back he didn't do well. I wouldn't mind seeing him come to KC for depth, but I don't think he would get much playing time now that we have Hillis.

    That was quick!

    Oh, well. No big loss. He helped my Bears out a little bit last year, but there are a lot of guys that can do what he did.

    Well, for my money, getting Berry back fixes the depth problem by moving all of the other guys down on the depth chart.

    Those guys were solid last season, with Berry out.
