Re: Rambos draft rounds 1-3 and free agencyAre you suggesting that since the Bears as a team gave up a number of rushing yards, no one on that team is worth adding to our defense?Not sure how well he played when the Bears got run over in the SB.
I would love some of the bears LB's, sure why not?

You said you couldnít quantify a NT by stats, so Iím thinking if they are getting run on much like us, how much better or is this guy any better then Kennedy.
This is the most legitimate argument against the Scott signing. The problem is there aren't very many huge starting-caliber NT's out there on the free agent market
So if that player was a quarterback, you'd go out and take him as well?
Would I like to have Clements on the team? Sure. And if we should happen to sign him, it's definitely going to be a big upgrade to the secondary.
I just think our money may be better spent by signing players at other positions where we have more of a question mark, such as the front seven
wide receiver, or even the offensive line.

Re: Rambos draft rounds 1-3 and free agency
- Chicago: 99.4 rushing yards allowed per game, 4.0 average yards per carry, 7 rushing TDs allowed all season
- St. Louis: 145.4 rushing yards allowed per game, 4.9 average yards per carry, 21 rushing TDs allowed all season
Keep in mind the Bears missed Tommie Harris, who Lovie Smith calls their best overall player, for the final three games of the season. Scott started over Tank Johnson to end the season, again without Harris beside him, and the Bears allowed an average of 73.6 rushing yards per game in that span.
Obviously the defense had its issues in the Super Bowl, but they all came in the second half. Through the first half, Chicago had held the Colts to 64 yards on 20 carries (3.2 average). But they couldn't sustain drives on offense so the D was on the field quite a bit a lot (38 minutes of the game to be exact) and likely just got worn down.
