    Re: Meriweather to Bears

    I knew he wouldn't last long on the open market.  I just thought one of the AFC East teams like the Jets or Dolphins would snag him.  Even better, he left the conference and we already faced the NFC North last year.

    I wish him the best, but since Chicago runs a Cover 2 D, and since most of his mistakes came from blown coverage from bad angles taken within his deep half of the field, he may have a rough time of it.

    Agreed, King.  I think he'll be better in Marinelli's system in Chicago.

    In Response to Re: Meriweather to Bears : Cover 2 is very one dimensional and allows athletes to make plays. I disagree completely.  He'll do well in that system. That's why a lot of teams run that Cover 2. His freelancing put him bad spots here trying to make plays. He's a playmaker. He never really understood that you have to pick your spots here, where in a Cover 2, it's very much up to the player, not needing to have a chemistry with the SS as much. ROdney understood his role so well, we got spoiled.

    Ditto

    I said this on a different board a couple days ago:

    And I think he'll have a big year being free to roam

         Great news! I didn't want to see him land in the AFC East.

    So Brandon "U-Turn" Meriweather now calls the windy city home ...

    Hallelujah !

     Chicago has now added another rightful reject to their growing list of inept moves ( adding Cowboys castoffs Roy Williams and Marion Barber while trading away Olson and cutting Chester Taylor )

     da Bears are now destined to go 5-11

    I think Rex Ryan dropped the ball on this one. Very surprised the Jets didn't sign him.

    While I really thought he would be a Jet today it doesn't surprise me that he got picked up quick by a team.  I think he will do well in Chicago. I think this is a very good fit for him.

    Re: Meriweather to Bears

    I disagree with the basic premise by Clayton that the Bears "helped themselves".

    I don't expect him to last in CHI.

    With BM the system doesn't really matter, although his deficiencies may be better hidden there.

    But his inability to tackle or take proper angles, let alone rotate in coverage are ill-suited to the Safety position and the NFL in general.

    I say he is somewhere else next year.  He's such a catch he got a 1-year deal.

    In Response to Re: Meriweather to Bears : It sure seemed like they had a fantastic crew of defensive backs and safties in the playoffs and that was without Leonard.  I just don't get how the Yets can trade a backup and get something for him and we can't get a dime for Meriweather.  The guy was a probowler.  You don't just get there by accident.  It's not a popularity contest.  With all those guys we've brought in, it seems like we have not done much to improve that secondary.  If I recall, they were lit up by some subpar QBs.

    Actually the Pro Bowl IS a popularity contest.  How else do you explain Brett Favre making the 2008 AFC Pro Bowl his one year with the Jets throwing 22 TDs and 22 INTs while Chad Pennington completed 67% of his passes, threw 19 TDs to 7 INTs and he didn't make the Pro Bowl.  Hell, even Matt Cassel had 21 TDs and 11 INTs and completed 63% of his passes and didn't make it when he filled in for Brady that year.
