    Clements didn't have a problem with the FT because we promised that we wouldn't tag him again. Maybe the Bears should've done the same with Briggs and they could've kept him around for one more year.

    I think that this shows that Briggs wants money over a winning team. I honestly don't think he will play another down as a Bear. There's going to be a considerable amount of interest in him. I think the only thing that is going to hold back from him being traded is the Bears GM. However, he did trade Thomas Jones, so I definitely see Briggs be traded.

      Angelo traded Jones a year AFTER Jones demanded to be traded. Jones did the same crap last year, the FO said no, he played the year out, and then the Bears traded him for good value with just one year left on his contract.


      There's a lesson to be learned here.

        The colts wouldnt be loosing much. They would give up the last pick in R1 where they would have probally drafted an OLB, instead with the trade they can get a proven player instead of a rookie

          Right...except Angelo wouldn't be able to trade Briggs next year since he only has one year on his franchise tender. So he would have to trade him this year if he wants immediate value.

            the only problem with that is the $ Briggs would want from you guys. So tell me, would they be willing to pay for him?

            Whitney Mercilus will be a better and more productive player than Shea McClellin

Saying Chicagos WR core is extremely talented is an extreme overstatement; Berrian would probably only be the #2 WR on most other teams. I do agree with you about the OL, they seem pretty solid. IMO, the Bears success had nothing to do with their offense.
              actually the bears success has a ton to do with the offense...not so much relying on the offense to do well but relying on them to not make mistakes and to basically eat up time so that they can score just enough to win and give the D rest so when they come back on they can stop any O, force turnovers, score, etc. so yes the bears offense is very key to their success...

              also...yes benson is unproven as starters go, but he is a 3rd year back now who averaged the same YPC as jones, scored as many td's as jones, and has never had an issue of injury problems in the past...he has shown he has the speed, power, and carrying ability to succeed in the NFL and is definately ready to start

              but I guess this season we will see what happens...

                For Vikings fans, this news (coupled with the Thomas Jones trade) just keeps
                getting better and better.

                    This is a stupid move by the Front Office and I hope they get screwed by it.

                    Briggs played his ******' heart out of that team and the best, the absolute best they can offer him, is here you go champ, you get a one year deal, better luck next time.

                      It's called the franchise tag. Teams do it all the time. How exactely, by the way, could they get "screwed" by it? At the very worst he holds out the whole year, makes absolutely no money, and they get the same result as they would have had they done nothing at all.


                      Oh, and they offered him 6 years-35 million. He turned that down.

                        Too bad the Vikings suck.
