The one thing GM Jerry Angelo did manage to do this off season is increase the depth of this team. It will now be tested....EVERYWHERE.
We have already lost Tommie Harris for this Sunday's game and potentially for a month. Now going to the new and improved Detroit Lions aerial assault, we will be without our two starting cornerbacks.
Both Nathan Vashar and Charles Tillman will be unavailable to play.
This will move Ricky Manning to fill in for Vashar. Rookie Trumaine McBride will likely fill in the void where Tillman was.
Brandon McGowan has some experience covering the slot, so he might see some time there as well.
Oh, wait, it gets better. Safety Adam Archuleta will be playing with a broken hand.
Other names that might see some time are Corey Graham, Ade Jimoh and Greg Fassitt.
The Bears, I hope, are looking at the free agent listings to see if anybody with some game experience.
Mike Brown (season)
Dusty Dvoracek (season)
Regardless if Brian Griese can change around this offense, if our defense can barely field a squad with our next three games against division foes, the Bears could be in bad shape by the time they start getting players back.
