Is Braylon Needed In Chicago?

Jay Operating Exclusively Out Of Shotgun?

Bring in another “big ugly”, not a “diva.”

If we get Braylon, does this hinder the progress of Earl Bennett?

Cutler’s former Vanderbilt teammate, is a solid slot receiver, who only dropped one pass last season – seventh-best in the NFL.

Will we possess too many receivers if Edwards gets signed?

Consider, that he’s similar in skill, size and personality to Roy Williams.  Would the former Longhorn benefit from another talented wideout?   Would the signing of the former Wolverine put him in a position where he “needs” to succeed?  He possibly wouldn’t need to, with all these pass catchers to contend with, a la “Big D.”  It would lessen the impact of his signing.  Deja vu.

Nonetheless, Johnny Knox is still Jay’s go-to No. 1 guy.  That we know.

Assuredly, this would mean the “Windy City Flyer” would see the field less on offense.  Could Hester revisit his role as mainly returning punts and kicks?  I still like him as a receiver, plus we’re paying him “receiver money.”  Would it take away from his chances to change a contest?  Or can he be just as dynamic and explosive of a game-breaker in an adjusted role?

So, do we run more five-receiver sets if we ink the Jets receiver?  Plenty of shotgun formations?  Mike Martz is licking his chops.  Cutler is getting excited – but should he?  This could translate into more pass attempts, which means more hits, knockdowns, hurries and sacks.  However, shotgun would give him more time to operate and survey the green pastures.

All in all, it would make for interesting Sundays for the Bears’ offensive coordinator, who would have fun game planning and incorporating all of his offensive weapons.

Remember, Kellen Davis and UDFA Dane Sanzenbacher (Ohio State) are viable options for Cutler on the team’s roster.

Lastly, the guy due for a pay day (Forte), he caught 64 passes, including the playoffs, from Jay.

Is Braylon needed?  How about another road-grading mauler for Mike Tice?

I don’t know if there would be enough balls to go around in the Windy City – but it sure would be fun to watch come Fall.  Embrace yourself Jay, it could be yet another “long year” – well, that’s a good thing, right?  Think: Super Bowl run.
