Each and every week teams lose players for the rest of the season due to injury. In a lot of cases this can really hurt a teams chances to produce victories down the stretch. As you know I keep track off all NFL Transactions on a daily basis, so when you see for example, Miami Dolphins *Placed (RB)Ronnie Brown on Injured Reserve, that means that the player going to injured reserve is lost for the season and placed on the injured reserve list. Once they are transfer to the list, they are excluded from the 53 man roster and the team is free to fill that vacancy however they choose. Sometimes in Fantasy Football, we forget that teams lose big time players each and every week, and it usually makes those teams a little bit weaker. So from here on out until the rest of the season, I will use this space to post what players have been placed on injured reserve, so you can use it to your advantage. It may be helpful with most fantasy leagues playoffs approaching.

From a Chicago Bears fan, I have some things to say about our football team…let me beat you to it, and say, yeah they suck this year. Let me tell you why….the trade for Jay Cutler is still the best thing the Bears have done in a very long time. He is the piece we need to build around. The FRANCHISE quarterback. His performance so far is not great by any means, but you can’t deny his positives. Our current receiving core isn’t going to cut it. If Cutler had more experienced and taller receivers, I think that would be a start. Our failed attempt to acquire Anquan Boldin gives us fans hope that Jerry Angelo still knows what he needs to do. The Cardinals will now gladly trade Anquan Boldin this off-season, and I think we need to do whatever it takes to get him. I still think we should have signed former Jaguars (WR)Matt Jones. He is still out there, and despite having some off the field issues, he has all the tools we need at the position. Next year if we had Anquan Boldin, Matt Jones (or another free agent signing), with Devin Hester or Johnny Knox in the slot with Greg Olsen at Tight End, this would fix our receiving core. Another huge problem is our terrible offensive line…we will be without 1st, 2nd, and 4th round picks in the 2010 draft, so we need to do our research and get ourselves some offensive lineman, and some help for our secondary. Free Agency might also help both of these positions a bit. As far as our running game is concerned, I think it all starts with our offensive line. They aren’t giving Matt Forte the holes he needs. Some of the blame has to go to Forte himself as well. He seems too antsy, and just needs to have a good off-season of strengthening and conditioning. I’m not totally opposed to adding another running back through the draft or free agency though. Kevin Jones is not the answer as our back up. He is just too injury prone, and I wouldn’t mind adding a bruising type back. Our defense is getting older, and I think the acquisition of (DE)Gaines Adams from the Buccaneers will help. I’m not too concerned with our defensive line or linebackers. They just need to stay healthy, and we need to make sure we have adequate depth in case of injury.

There has been some talk of letting Head Coach Lovie Smith go after the season. I have mixed emotions on this….I think Lovie is a players coach, and I doubt there is a single player in that locker room that holds any ill will towards Lovie Smith. He lead us to a Super Bowl in 2007, and that should tell you right there that he is capable of being our head coach. I feel that Lovie needs to fire himself up a bit more, and drop the reserved approach. He should still treat his players as men, but needs to take a tougher approach to it. I read somewhere that former Denver Broncos head coach, Mike Shanahan would be a perfect fit. I don’t disagree with that at all, because he is from the Chicago area, was the head coach of Jay Cutler since he entered the league in 2006, and has lead the Denver Broncos to multiple Super Bowl championships. It is no guarantee he would take the job here anyway, but you can see why it would be attractive to the Bears, as well as Shanahan himself. It surely is an interesting scenario. I just don’t think Lovie is to blame for all of our problems. We need to fire Ron Turner in the offseason….that is one thing I am very sure of. We need to start from scratch and implement a new offensive scheme with a new offensive coordinator, who will build our offense around Jay Cutler’s abilities. As far as free agents in 2010, I will list a few players that would help us in getting this thing turned around. Remember that we don’t have many choices in the 2010 draft, so we need to bring in fresh faces through free agency or trades. Bringing in the right group of talent could get this thing turned around. It seems like any offensive player who comes to Chicago from another team, never does as well as his previous stint with the old team. The players that leave the Bears to go to different teams seem to do so much better with their new team, than with their stint with the Bears…just look at (RB)Cedric Benson – Bengals, (RB)Thomas Jones – Jets, (WR)Bernard Berrian – Vikings, (QB)Kyle Orton – Broncos, (DT)Tank Johnson – Cowboys & Bengals….it’s too much to be coincidence. Our upper management needs to make sure we work extra hard in the off-season, to not only evaluate players, but evaluate how their independent skills will mesh with the next guy.
