You need a third option for who really cares.

Ive always had a nudge against Anderson that he was a little soft. Idk why

It's really not an either-or situation. Anderson wants to start at OLB and the Bears paid him 1.25 million to do it. Blackburn is a back-up who can come in at MLB or OLB, and likely took vet minimum.

Who would I rather have as a back-up? Probably Anderson. But he wasn't willing to play ball contract-wise knowing he was destined to ride the bench.

I'd rather have a slb and a fast back up at the wlb position.

There's also that whole thing about Blackburn having super bowl experience. An understanding of what it takes to win is something this team has sorely needed after years upon years of indoctrinating our players on what it's like to underachieve and how it's okay to lose.

That would be commendable if he was going to start. If that's the case I wish we could have had Shockey around here for a couple of years since he had 2 rings.

Whoever was cheaper, Blackburn was so I'm happy with him. Anderson can join JP and die in bear country. Oh and I hope they like taking orders brotha Jay.

Where some of you who think this is downgrade don't seem to be up to speed is that LB is not a position you invest major resources in


Blackburn is an equatable player to Anderson who, in addition to having ST ability and the aforementioned winning attitude, came cheaper.



Well run organizations don't pride themselves on how many high pick/ huge dollar linebackers they have.

NO, I take offense to that. Shockey was my hero.
