    OL looks ugly

    In the media all I hear is how the OL is a plus for the Bears now.

    But after looking at it today, I realized I have no idea WTF they're doing after the 1st 4 starters (most likely because they don't either).

    I count 7 guys who belong on an NFL roster...and #5, 6, and 7 have spent most of the preseason out injured.

    Bushrod, Slauson, Garza, Long, Mills
    Britton, DeLaPuente, Groy, Ola, Boggs, Leno


    Vets Brown, Roland, Turner, Gandy all dumped?

    If they don't have a run of good health there, they're ****ed.

    Anyone heard of a good vet axed elsewhere?

    I don’t see the worry, other than the health of Mills in week 1. Britton and DeLaPuente have all 5 positions covered, and I am pretty confident in either of them being able to fill in adequately. I also thought that Ola looked like he belonged on an NFL roster when I watched him this preseason. That’s five starters and three back ups that I am comfortable with in their roles. We return the same 5 starters, which always helps, and two of them have potential for a lot of positive growth. I am not confident enough to call the position group a strength, but I am very comfortable with it going into the season. A lot more so than I have been in several years really.

    Britton is out too, now.


    Bushrod, Slauson, Garza, Long, Mills
    DeLaPuente, Ola, Leno


    My humble evaluation of the depth is
