Default First Round Pick for Lance Briggs

Since I live in Illinois all you hear about is Lance Briggs and the Bears. I was wondering do you think our first round pick is worth trading for Lance Briggs????

Uhhhhhh, do I think we would trade up? Doubt it. Would we trade down? Yes. Didn't have alot of keepers last year. I do think we have alot of spots to fill, especially if we lose stud...Faneca.... on an already interesting line....not that we'll lose him....we'll see. Sorry if I got off track.

We can't afford him,and he's gonna be more expensive than Peezy was.

A trade with Briggs would probally have to have a contract in place before he leaves Chicago.He doesn't wanna play for the Bears,but I think he'd rather play in Chicago than somewhere else for one year.

He would have to be moved to MLB....doesnt fit as a 3-4 outside Linebacker...also is a player that benifited from Chicagos Defense and may only be an average LB in another scheme.

I wouldnt do it...Why would we want someone elses problems. Joey was well loved in the city and he was let go because of cap issues. Why bring in someone who is already disgruntled over his contract and who has no ties with the team. If we were gonna do that we should have just kept Joey and let him walk next year. Atleast that way a fan favorite is around for another year...I say no trade

My guess is that the Rooney's pay absolutely ZERO attention to who is a fan favorite and who isnt...that really has nothing to do with their decision making

And if the decision was simply Briggs or Porter....that is easy...Briggs in a second...younger with more good years ahead of him

As far as the trade....it will never happen
