Bucky Brooks on crack?


Um no Bucky – the Bears offense is not better than the Packers offense because of the Bears addition of malcontent Brandon Marshall. Read here. Is it a better offense than before because of Marshall? Probably. Marshall is a very good player. But is it better than the Packers offense – one of the most potent offenses of the last couple decades? Not even close. And is it now better than the Lions’ offense? No. The Bears most likely will be hard-pressed to end up with the 3rd best offense in the NFC North. And if Christian Ponder or Joe Webb develop at all, it’s possible they could end up 4th in the division again! (Last year, the Bears were the #24 ranked offense in total yards, GB was #3, Detroit was #5 and MN was #18.)

Bucky Brooks is on crack. Nothing else to say really.

    This is probably wishful thinking/superstition, but it seems like the perfectly logical “all we need is a __” move that is lauded every offseason often fails miserably on the field. I’m thinking of Herschal Walker (Vikes) and Elvis Grbac (Ravens) and Adalius Thomas (Pats- a guy I wanted the Pack to get) most prominently, but I am sure there are others out there. Football is so dependent on scheme and chemistry that it is very difficult to transplant success on one team to success on another team, no matter how much sense it makes on paper.

    That said, I hope Marshall follows the above examples and not Moss (Pats), Corey Dillon (Pats) or Terrell Owens (Eagles- actually, this one probably both worked and failed).

    I hate to say it, but Cutler and Marshall’s past success probably bodes well for the Bears. Before Cutler got hurt they were the team that concerend me the most last year.

    Marshall will be a positive for the Bears offense, of course, but to claim they are now the most explosive offense in the NFC north? Pure homerism and fantasy. The Lions just sent two dumptrucks full of cash to Megatron’s house, I’d say they’re still solidly in front of the Bears, and the Pack being as rich as they are at WR and TE (and a promising running game developing, I think) are still far and away number one.

    The Vikings, meanwhile, barely have enough long term starters to field a Basketball team.

    I’m curious if anyone will even be able to field a team in 10 years. These contracts are outrageous and each one causes a ripple effect. What’s Greg Jennings going to want when his contract expires after seeing Megatron get 60 mil GUARANTEED. I know it’s not quite apples to apples but still. What’s Aaron playing for, 6 mil per year and Brees turns down 18 mil. 50 mil for Brandon Carr & same for Brandon Marshall?

    I realize that there’s a new TV deal coming up but it has to stop somewhere. NFL needs to take a good look at NASCAR. 3-4 years ago they were the fastest growing sport in America and money was just flowing in. They built all the new Mega tracks with the luxury suites, wine bars, etc. & closed down some of the original, beloved smaller tracks, tried racing in Mexico & Canada & now they can’t even fill the stands–anywhere. The average fan just can’t afford it & sponsers are leaving in droves.

    Now football is building all these super stadiums, talking about teams in London & paying what I think is way too much money to players as well as virtually putting dresses on QB’s. Heck, Madden even suggested that once they toss the ball they should be treated like a kicker or a punter & cannot be touched. (Doubt that one will ever happen but who knows).

    It has to stop somwhere. End of rant…….

    Football is going the same route

    I agree, I was shocked when I first read this article. One player will not make them more explosive than the Lions or the Packers. Though, you could argue they may be the most balanced offense in the NFC North, with a top receiver, top running back, and a solid quarterback.
