Brad,

What is the Bears record when they wear their orange jerseys?

Fan: I think they are 4-1 or 5-1 in the orange. Good game yesterday except our inability to score in the redzone. So many years we couldn't get in the red zone. Now we are in it all day and can't score or settle for a field goal. Glad Robbie is on our team. 1-4 against ATL and now 3 fieldgoals instead of TD's: 1 drive died on the 2 yard line and the other Manning set up for the O on the 10. PLEASE WORK ON THIS!!!!

But they got a win so people please be happy and stop bi#$%ing like they lost. 4-3 in 2nd place. Could be worse.

GO BEARS!!!!

Brad,
Isn't there anybody on the street we can sign so we can put Tinoisamoa on IR? It just doesn't make sense to me. We should have put Williams on IR last year, but at least he played a couple of downs last year. Tinoisamoa is done and not coming back. There has to be someone who we can put on the roster to have an extra body at practice.

What's the strategy, other than not having an additional salary to deal with? Is there still a chance to waive/injured Tinoisamoa, so they don't necessarily have to pay the full year's salary?

And when are we going to let Gilbert get some playing time? It is obvious Tommie Harris is not capable of getting it done, and I am quite frankly tired of not having any idea whether any of these guys can play after their rookie season. Iglesias, Gilbert, Moore, Louis, and Melton will all basically have zero experience in games going into next season. How is that a good thing? Make Iglesias or Moore play special teams or something, and sit Rashied Davis for a game.
