If it was for a long term contract then yeah I would take Briggs, he is younger. But for one year with free agency looming for both of them..I would take Porter.

No.....have a good pick at 15...not many holes to fill.....and you see that all Briggs cares about is money.......He was in the superbowl last year......a great chance to repeat.... and now he wants out.......Doesnt care about the game.....only the money

I wouldnt go so far to say he ONLY cares about money...
He wants to be paid like the bad ass LB he is...and not be treated like Urlacher's kid borther...

But I would say that a guy that uses the national media & holdout threats to get what he wants presents a pretty sizeable philosophical difference...one that the rooney's could never allow on THEIR football team

I agree. No way we do this.

Also, the thing on Briggs is the same as what people used to say about Porter, that he was a mediocre linebacker in a linebacker friendly defense. Briggs, of course, coming from a system where people had to run away from Urlacher toward him.

Good stats last year, but I remember reading somewhere that Chicago is a stat friendly system being in the Tampa 2.

He may drown away from Urlacher (although he hardly thinks so)... Its not worth the benjies... Let the Redskins have him...

They'll keep trying to buy a Super Bowl...

How do they stay under the cap?

Its just one of those things... Its so hard to tell how someone is going to 'mesh' on a new team. Its kind of refreshing that the Steelers don't go out and dish out big bucks every year to free agents (not like we could this year). Its one of the reasons we probably stay so competative.

The aforementioned Redskins dumped a ton of cash for Randle El, just because he has a ring now. He had 351 receiving yards (62 short of the league AVERAGE) and only 3 touchdowns (A fourth on a punt return). The Redskins finished 5-11. I don't know... Buying high profile free agents just doesn't always seem smart. The Patriots seem to do well with the same philosophy... Except for this year, because Belichik wants one more.

Bears | Team rejects Redskins' trade offer for Briggs
Tue, 3 Apr 2007 10:45:27 -0700

Jay Glazer, of FOXSports.com, reports as of right now, the proposed deal sending Chicago Bears LB Lance Briggs and the No. 31 overall pick in the NFL Draft to the Washington Redskins for the No. 6 overall pick is off the table after Bears general manager Jerry Angelo rejected the deal. According to sources, Angelo phoned the Redskins Tuesday, April 3, with his decision. The deal, however, may not be lost for good. The Bears would like to include LB Rocky McIntosh in the deal. The Redskins, however, do not want to part with McIntosh.

Jerry Angelo = IDIOT. They're not willing to move up 25 picks in the 1st round at the expense of unloading a disgruntled player who has made it loud and clear he WILL NOT play for the Bears again, no way, no how? Stupidity, sheer stupidity.
