Archuleta To Start

If it wasn't for new Bears safety Adam Archuleta, I might have had to close the site down for the off season.

I don't know what exactly the Bears told him or did not tell him, but he believes he is our starting safety.

'I'm the strong safety on this football team,'' Archuleta said Thursday when he took a physical to complete his trade to the Bears from the Redskins in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick. ''At no point has anybody ever indicated that I would be a backup."

Maybe a misunderstanding, but I don't know how comfortable I am with him as starter.  Granted I am not all that comfortable with Brown and his injury problems and to be fair there is some gossip floating around saying that Brown might miss the first 7 games of the year, maybe it is all true.
