Da New Era in Chicago Bear Football, Part 1: Preparing for Battle

USA TODAY Sports

Da Bears are ready to do some damage. I have been a believer in Emery since day one. In my eyes Emery is a Beast of a G.M. He has a way of talking that‘s almost presidential. I love the fact that Emery is meticulous. He doesn't just scout incoming prospects he continues to keep track of our roster along with other team's rosters according to their initial scouting report. It's his way of proof reading or gauging his scout's accuracy in their prospect projections.

Emery has provided us plenty of ammunition this offseason to have an all-out roster spot war. We may finally have a depth chart where we can trust anyone going out on the field of play. Emery may not have been able to address every position in the need of depth but it's just his second year and he's done an awesome job.

I've been watching all the Emery hate on this site and mostly on the media and I truly believe Emery and his nation will have the last laugh. I've also recognized three methods of drafting. My three examples may not be the first created example of each method but they are the examples I will use. There is the Patriot way which is drafting football players first and foremost and then hiring a speed guy to create their workouts. There is the Raider way where you draft speed and disregard ranking and hope for the best. Then there is the Emery way where you draft individuals who are dynamic and versatile, but fitting to your scheme and make them become students of the game by providing them an awesome group of teachers of your scheme.

Emery has caught grief for the drafting of Shea and Hardin in last year's draft but no one cares to realize that both were the second rated player at their position. There are many of you contradicting your list of what you need from Emery. The argument with Shea was that he's just a rotation guy and he needs to step up his game. Or, if we're gonna draft him first he needs to start. Well this year everybody wanted Floyd which wouldn't have beaten out Melton and would've been a rotation guy. Or some of you wanted Eifert because he would've been able to line up at the second tight end position, basically a rotation guy. Make up your mind!

Yes, Emery caught me off guard with the selection of Long but that pick was 20% genius and 80% common sense. Our only position in question as to who starts is at the guard position. I believe Slauson is a starter but even then we don't know which side he will start on. I don't wanna hear about Long's lack of experience, after watching the dream chasers film his lack of experience was completely explained to me. No one questions the drafting of Ansah or Lane Johnson in the first round. Some of you argued it was a reach, how is that so, he was the best rated guard left on the board. And I could truly see how Emery would've rated him higher than Warmack and Cooper. We must remember each prospect is rated according to the team's scheme of play. That's like us drafting a 6'7 250 pound slow defensive tackle in the first round because he is a run stopper. That type of move just doesn't fit what we do on defense. One could only wonder if Long would've been able to stay in school one more year where would he be ranked in next year's draft.

Let the roster spot war begin.

  • I definitely think Coy is just a camp body to help push Blanchard.
  • I stand firm on my thinking that we are just fine with Cutler, McCown, and Blanchard. We are doing best to create a top notch pass protecting offensive line so hopefully if all goes as planned Cutler won't ever find himself not on the field.
  • I could also argue the case that McCown as our #3 guy always outplays our #2 guy so why not give him the opportunity.
  • I'm sure we had a couple quarterbacks on our board but we were able to grab some great value at other positions at the end of the draft.
  • Even if we would've drafted a quarterback in the mid to late rounds they probably still wouldn't have beat out McCown for the #2 spot.

  • Seeing only four names on this list shows you the offensive transition we are going thru. We usually have 6 to 7 backs going into camp
  • I know there are many Forte haters out there but I believe this will be a pro bowl year for him.
  • I definitely think our new zone running game will benefit Forte more than our previous power run game systems. But I also recognize his biggest asset in this new offense will be his hands as a pass catcher.
  • Those of you who are fans of Bush better get all you can out of him this year because I believe it's going to be his last year. He makes entirely too much money to be a backup and probably wont see much time on the field this year compared to last year.
  • After looking at Ford's numbers I believe he is the poor man's version of Christine Micheal.
  • Everything in me wants to believe Ford should take the third spot from Allen, but Allen has found a way every year to stay on our roster.
  • Though Ford has some awesome numbers he isn't much of a pass catcher and that one flaw may be what gets him cut.

  • Many of you have said this before but I wish Clutts was still on the roster.
  • Not sure how many of you caught this but our UDFA signings show you what we weren't able to address in the draft. The fact that we didn't draft or sign an extra fullback tells me they pretty much know who their number two guy will be.
  • Some of you were trying to figure out why E-Rod was still listed at fullback but common sense will tell you he's listed there because he is our starting fullback. Now one thing the tight end coach revealed to us in the paper was the fact that E-Rod will be used in multiple ways, so I guess you can call him a hybrid fullback.
  • Harvey Unga was listed as the second team fullback during mini-camp so we will see how things progress.
  • The reason I have Gabe Miller here is because I believe there is no way he is retained as a tight end for us and he was listed as a Defensive end and H-back coming out the draft.
  • I believe E-Rod will be a huge weapon as a pass catcher from the fullback position.

  • Fellas we finally have our tight end. I rather this guy over Olsen any day. Martellus is B. Marshall in a tight end body. I believe our offense will have so much fun this year and this guy will be a huge part of it.
  • There's gonna be a roster spot battle behind Martellus and Maneri. The question is will Trestman choose to keep only one backup or a guy behind Martellus and a guy behind Maneri. I've been high on the potential of Onobun since we signed him so I think he will be the guy lined up behind Martellus.
  • Again I ask you to direct your attention towards our UDFA signings. We didn't sign a tight end which tells me our staff is happy with what we have on board, and I have no problem with that. I believe Kyle Adams is the odd guy out because of his lack of speed but we just have to wait and see.

  • Ooh wee, the receiver position will undergo maybe the biggest roster spot battle it's ever seen. This is another sign in the change of our offensive philosophy.
  • I'm so excited to see Brandon Marshall and Alshon start opposite of each other.
  • I'm an Earl fan but this may be his last year. He makes entirely too much money, but with that being said I believe he will have ample opportunity to show his worth this year.
  • Earl's spot will be challenged the most by Marquess Wilson. After watching film on him their style of play after the catch is very similar.
  • Regardless of the reasons why Marquess fell in the draft he is a very technically sound receiver. For his height he has awesome feet, kinda like some other guys that will battle for a roster spot.
  • I know Joe Anderson had a good pre-season last year but I don't see a way for him to survive the the battle that is about to take place.
  • I like the film on Golden but I don't think there's a way he survives the battle either.
  • Outside of Earl I wouldn't be surprised if our final roster is made up of tall receivers, how's that for a turn around.
  • I hope Dale and Tolliver are able to retain a roster spot. I think Tolliver will have the upper hand over every receiver not named Earl, Marshall, and Alshon.
  • I think we can say goodbye to Eric Weems. The key to Weems departure will depend upon Mark Harrison. I believe Harrison is a physical force to reckon with but he must continue to improve on his catching. If Harrison can somehow make himself useful on special teams then Weems wont be missed.
  • Josh Lenz is the wild card. But I don't believe he will make the team because he can only line up inside and he doesn't get much separation lined up outside. The only way Lenz could possibly find a way on our final roster would be as a returner but I don't think that would be enough either.

  • Let the Royal Rumble begin.
  • We've grown accustomed to the Bears carrying people on the roster who didn't seem to have to prove their worth, this year will be different.
  • Cory Brandon and Derek Dennis are pretty much gone.
  • Miller is a younger version of Scott and there is a possibility that Scott or Webb could get cut. If we don't mind carrying 4 tackles I think we will retain Miller, Scott, Webb,and Bushrod.
  • There is definitely gonna be a huge battle at guard between Carimi, Brown, Slauson, Britton, and Long. I believe the winners will be Slauson and Long, with Long at the LG position.
  • There is a possibility that Lonergan will be included in that guard battle too. Though P.J. is listed as a center his skill set may better suit him at guard.
  • I definitely think the Bears intended on drafting Schwenke with their 4th round pick but they just missed him.
  • Emery made a comment about liking SEC guys and I think that liking played a part in signing Lonergan. There is nothing about Lonergan's measurable that say he can be that guy but the one thing he does have on his resume is going up against top talent in the SEC, but I don't think that will be enough.
  • This year will be a show and prove year for Edwin Williams. I don't think he has a chance at a guard position so he must prove his worth as a center. If for some reason Edwin is cut in favor of Boggs don't expect us to go after a starting center in next year's draft because that starter will be Boggs. But if we cut Boggs and retain Edwin then I think center will be address early next year.
  • I look forward to seeing who makes out the depth chart of our offensive line because I think even the backups will be more than capable of coming in and holding down the fort.
  • Last but not least don't be surprised if Gabe Carimi is no longer a Chicago Bear.

  • I wish Urlacher could be apart of his list but he isn't and I'm cool with that. D. J Williams will hold it down just fine.
  • There will be a huge battle for a roster spot within this group too.
  • For those of you who doubt Bostic and Greene please know I would pick either one of them over Nick Roach, whether at MLB or outside.
  • Lawrence Wilson and Dom Decicco are pretty much good as gone. I wonder whether we will carry six or seven linebackers. The battle will be between Thomas, Costanzo, and Franklin. I wouldn't be surprised if Franklin comes out the victor, though the better coverage LB is Thomas.

  • Our defensive back group will undergo a minor battle too. Regardless of the roster spot earned I hope our starters can remain healthy.
  • Bowman's vertical, shuttle, and 3 cone numbers kind of tell me the story of why he's never been able to help us much on the outside.
  • Bowman may lose his roster spot this preseason, not to a corner but to one of our many safeties we have under contract. We must be mindful that Bowmans worth to this team is on special teams and not defense so if one of our safeties step up then he will definitely be a casualty.
  • I believe LeQuan's worth is more as a returner than corner.
  • The battle for the next corner up I believe will be between Frey and C.J. Wilson. Wilson has outstanding measurables and I hope he's up for the challenge.
  • Demontre Hurst will battle Hayden for his nickel spot. Hurst is advertised to have the skill set for nickel but he just lacks top speed.
  • I wanna point out something I noticed as I was putting together the cornerback information. Many of us have claimed that our defensive system doesn't require a top notch corner but if you look at where Jennings and Tillman were ranked among their draftable peers we should at least recognize that we may wanna draft a corner rated in the top ten.

  • Looking at this list of names I believe we have the most talented group of safeties in the league.
  • I cant help but to recall many of you saying Hardin was a reach though he was ranked as the second best free safety coming out of the draft.
  • I believe Zbikowski will work his way ahead of Steltz and possibly open the door to Steltz's release. Regardless this will be Steltz's last year as a Chicago Bear.
  • There is a possibility that the Bears may retain 6 safeties if it benefits our special teams. Those six being Zbikowski, Wright, Steltz, Nelson, Conte, and Hardin. If not 6, the odd man out I believe will be between Steltz and Nelson.

  • No we didn't address the DT spot in the draft but we have to realize that we are speaking of the 4th DT spot in our rotation.
  • Out of Andre Fluellin, Brent Russell, and Zach Minter I hope Minter earns the 4th spot in our rotation. Minter is an absolute Beast and loves to cause havoc at the line and behind the line. Minter is the perfect fit to be Meltons back-up
  • I expect Melton to continue playing at a high level and I believe Paea will be coming into his own this year as well.
  • Did I tell you that Minter is an absolute Beast. I watched the highlights of this kid and it made me say Floyd who?

· This is another group that will battle for the 4th and 5th spot at defensive end.

· Some of you are open to cutting Peppers next year but I would love for him to play out his contract and retire a Bear.

· The word is Shea has gotten stronger this off-season so that’s a plus. I’m still finding myself defending the Shea pick and I don’t mind at all. If Shea would’ve played in the packers defense last year he would’ve been a beast. Or if he would’ve played in that type of defense in college always rushing the passer he would’ve put up awesome numbers. Shea’s versatility hurt his draft stock but Emery was able to look over that and grab a steal last year in Shea McClellin.

  • · I Believe the best battle at the defensive end position will be between Turk, Moore and Ozougwa, for the final spot.
  • · Washington is an absolute steal for us and he will make his presence known this off-season. He was was low-listed for his production but he falls under the same umbrella as Shea in having so many responsibilities other than rushing the passer. This kid will be a terror and he will be a huge factor in why I think we will have the league’s best defensive line this year.
  • · I hope Wooton will continue to build on his production from last year. The 40 time i posted for him doesn’t tell the whole story. At the time he ran his 40 he was still recovering from surgery.
  • · Because of our heavy rotation at the defensive end and defensive tackle position I don’t expect us to have a league leader in sacks but we will lead the league in total team sacks.
