  • Bears sign Pisa!

    http://blogs.suntimes.com/bears/2009...with_pisa.html

    Somewhat big news as he was probably the best, or at least on of the best, FA available. Looks like he will be the starting SAM.

    Talk about an extremely fast LB corp: Pisa-Lach-Briggs

    Looks like Hunter Hillenmeyer needs a hell of an offseason to remain on the team as the backup SAM and MIKE.

    Actually think thats a great pickup. I knew the Pats had him for a visit and it was kinda meh for me a the time but for the Bears I think he is going to a place that will really suit him. If the Bears D-line plays well that LB corp could be scary

        Good move by both sides. They both are familiar with each other and Pisa played well under Lovie's defense.

        Props to fenikz on the awesome sig

          You guys aren't going to cut Hillenmeyer. That would end your monopoly of Vandy players.

            Pisa is a decent enough player, but don't get overly excited about him. I would say he is an average starting LB at best. He is undersized, gets hurt, and is pushed backwards more often than pushing forward. All that being said though, he isn't going to be a glaring hole in the defense. Simply put, he's average.

            I am done arguing, until somebody says something stupid.

                They plan on starting him at the SAM? Not the best idea i've ever heard.

                  You're Right he should start over Lance Briggs. Maybe he should move to MIKE and play over Urlacher.

                  SAM is a decent place for him. In the Zone scheme he will work well in space and can find gaps. He can fill the position well when he will be next to 2 Pro-Bowl LBs.

                  Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

                    Not much left in FA. I think he's a fairly solid LB and Bears had defensive issues last year.

                          Really, in the cover 2, all three spots are extremely similar. Our SAM doesn't need to be a big run stuffer and get to the QB like they do for the Giants or Eagles. They need to be able to cover a lot of ground and cover a TE or FB. Pisa fits that role perfectly.

                            He's not that big of an upgrade over Hillenmeyer.

                              With the way HH played the previous two years, yeah he is.

                              I've always been a big fan of HH, but he's really slowed down over the past couple years.
