Okay, so Olin Kreutz is gone and we lost a huge leadership role in the locker room. But lets try to be realistic here for a minute. Olin has been the anchor for our offense for the past decade, no doubt about it. But we as fans cannot blame anybody for what happened.
All Ive been seeing is posts and comments where Jerry and Lovie have been called every name in the book. Comments on how they are terrible at making decisions for this team and how they should go to hell for what they did. Well I say wrong. They may have made some questionable decisions along the way, and so what if Jerry is terrible at drafting players. Looks as if to me he is just bad at drafting 1st rounders. And I dont see anyone hating on him for drafting Carimi. Im Not! Now its on to all the recent Free Agent aquisitions that have transpired over the last couple of days. Everyone is questioning wether or not they were the right decision. Well, honestly if you compare who we have gained to who we have lost, overall we are actually sitting better off. I understand that we lost Olin and we didnt get a #1 WR but we have to move on as fans and support our team. Olin is well repsected and will always have a place in our hearts, but Lets think about this as a closing thought. Every team loses there leaders and franchise players eventually. Think about when we lose Urlacher. I bet all of us will really be crying then. So, anyway, I welcome Spencer, Podlesh, Spaeth, Williams, Barber, Hurd, Okoye, and Gholston to our team and to any other free agents out there. Welcome to the Chicago Bears and this fan will support you!
