Who’s Safe?

| November 23rd, 2009


QB – Jay Cutler

RB – Matt Forte

WR – Devin Hester, Johnny Knox, Earl Bennett

TE – Greg Olsen, Desmond Clark, Kellen Davis

OL – Chris Williams, Josh Beekman

Notes – Orlando Pace is incapable of protecting the blindside at his age.  Roberto Garza and Olin Kretuz are serviceable players but also easily upgraded.  The offensive line – as a whole – needs to be the focus of management during what will be a long offseason.



DL – Alex Brown, Israel Idonije, Gaines Adams

LB – Lance Briggs, Brian Urlacher, Pisa Tinoisamoa

CB – Charles Tillman

Safety – No one

Notes – This unit needs serious attention and it needs serious improvement.  The Bears can not enter the 2010 season without a capable player at the safety position and they must find a way to generate a pass rush from the front four if they’re going to stay in this defensive system.
