For the record, I am not a Bears fan. There are just certain teams that I like to be good. In the NFL, the Bears are one of those teams. It is easier to root against a team if they're good.

There are rumors aplenty surrounding Denver wide receiver Brandon Marshall. We all know that this malcontent wants out of Denver, and that Denver is willing to part with him.

As far I can tell, the most rumored landing spots for Marshall are the Seahawks and the Bengals. Well, I couldn't care less about either of those teams. If given the power, I would veto those trades.

The Bears have a petulant, but big-armed QB. The kid needs someone to throw to. Brandon Marshall is arguable the best in the game right now, and he's available. Not a good idea to pair them up?

Recent moves by the Bears suggest that they are going all in this offseason to build a winner. Why not get Marshall?

He pouts and whines...fine. Throw him the ball enough, and I'm sure he'll be happy. Besides, he is light years better than any of Jay Cutler's current targets.

Why is this not done yet? Wouldn't the Broncos consider the Bears a better trading partner than an in-conference rival like the Bengals? Does anyone think he'd be a bad fit?
