Alright i get it........

This past week, there are a lot of worried, angry, depressed Bears fans out there over that debacle that was shown to the nation on Sunday night. I, as one of the many, felt like vomiting over watching the display of the Bears loss and the fact we loss Url for a year. It didn't help the next day at school that some people yell out "How 'bout those picks!?!" or "Green Bay rocked the Bears' ass!" Violence could've been used on my part, but i didn't want to give the team I love a bad name, unlike Buffulo.

But with that aside, most Bears fans are trying to be the Bears GM and asking for our current weakside linebacker Lance Briggs to move over to the middle.

Ok, lets just move our best linebacker, who has gone to four-consecutive Pro Bowl with the addition of two All-Pros who has played his career at weakside, to easily go to the middle.

...............In other words, lets make the hole the Bears got themselves in deeper.

Look Bears fans, this week was definetly not our week by any means, i mean i dont ven remember a team having this bad of a week 1 in all my years of watching football. But this doesn't mean it totally the end of the world for us. Jay told the press that he has put the week behind him and looking foward to week 2 with Pittsburg.

So lets all take a breathe and calm down.

But back to my issue, Moving Lance to the middle whould not only make the LB situation worse, but we would have to put one of our lesser extent LBs in his spot. And what makes you all think Lance will be better in the middle? Ive never seen him play middle so i dont know what he do in that positon. With Lance on the weakside, he can continue his All-Pro playmaking ability that we have become accusomed to seeing. The defense will plug its hole and Lance will run free to make plays as he always has been.

Now Hunter is not Url by any means, but he knows the systems and can play midddle linebacker pretty well. Remember he was a starter during our super bowl season. Im willing to give Hunter another shot to make things happen.

Url's injury sucks, but last year the Pats lost Brady and didn't seem to miss a beat. Freak injuries are part of the game and they can happen to a practice squard player and/or a Hall of Famer, but it point of moving on without the player and still producing results.

In conclusion, in a week of misery, Jerry Angelo stated that they won't move Lance to middle, and it was a good decision.
