Briggs who? Not needed, and not wanted, IMO.

Just one good defensive lineman coming to Washington soon would make this a mighty fine offseason, I reckon. I'll be hoping that something comes up after June 1st rather than trading away any of next year's picks though.

1. That wouldn't happen.

2. Briggs is not worth it. He's only "good" because of a certain Chi-town teamate... and I say "good" because he's not even that good. Sure, he had a bunch of tackles last year (again, thanks Urlacher), but the guy had 1 sack and 2 interceptions last year. 3.5 sacks in 4 years... why do you love the guy so much?

But it's not going to happen. We don't have a big player that can be traded without crippling the defense.

Gibbs said he's not trading future picks.

Plus Vinny was on the radio yesterday and said the Briggs deal is dead.

So basically what I'm saying is that what you want is not going to happen. And that gives me a deep sense of satisfaction because retarded trades such as this causes us to be without day 1 draft picks.

But hey, Madden 08 drops in August.

No :lol: I have a deep hatred for Madden but thats off topic. :twisted:

I just say that so those who like these idotic trades can do so in a fantasy setting. It's almost like in the past our F/O used Madden to determine who'd work out the best.

The Briggs TRADE may be dead, but didn't Lance say that he was not going to play for The Bears this year, he is willing to sit out the first 10 games and come back for the final 6 games just to get his time-in-service in. The Bears may decide to rid themselves of the problem and release him and then we can sign him without giving up any picks or players.

We'd still have to pay him a crazy amount of money.

We have to sign Landry.
We gotta resign Cooley and Taylor soon....

Briggs is a want not a need. Briggs won't play as well here due to an inferior defensive line and no Brian Urlacher.

Why not save this cash and resign our own talent and keep this unit intact?

Do you really think the Bears are just going to give away a young Pro Bowl linebacker?!? They'd trade him for a 7th before they did that. And it's still way too early to call his bluff on the sitting out the season stuff. Camp hasn't even started! Besides, do you think any front office is just going to roll over and release any guy threatening to sit out because he doesn't like his deal? There's just no way they're going to release him for nothing. Stop with this Briggs obsession!

I'm just shocked that people are falling for this "all-in-one solution" gimmick. I swear, its year after year that someone gets marketed to the sheep and they go right off the side of the cliff for it.

I woke up out of that dream. Just take the pill and you too will awake from the Matrix.
