Bears Release Starting LT Charles Leno

Yes to this, I hope Christiansen starts but Leno would be good insurance policy 

I like how taking a left tackle in the third round automatically makes Christiansen the savior due to Huddle logic. We already have Cam Erving, I don't see how this guy would be an upgrade on what we have and we already have like six tackles on the roster. The Bears line was atrocious last year.

Leno is way better than Erving. 

Erving at a pff grade of 58 compared to Leno's 74.

I was wondering if we had any connections with Leno here, so I looked it up.

The Bears OL coach during his rookie year was current Panthers line coach Pat Meyer.

when this story broke yesterday I almost posted "hey Mr. Scott, will check for coaching staff connections."  

Then I realized you'd get around to it sooner or later.

Beware - In Chicago, Leno earned the nicknames "Turnstile", "Speed Bump" and "The Walrus" as he spent a lot of time on the ground. He was a big reason for Trubisky's struggles.

That is what my Chicago friends tell me.  I would rather have Scott.  You can't keep burying your talent to bring in the next quick fix/rental.  It is demoralizing and breaks up the chemistry you need to develop as a group. Make your linemen better--let them get to know each other, and they will be good.  Dont care how nice the new tire is, if it is not balanced or has different tread, you may not get the improved ride you thought.

How long was he the coach with him for?

Just the one season. They fired their head coach at the end of that year and replaced him with John Fox. Meyer moved on to the Bills for two years before joining the Chargers.

YES!! After watching this and some of his film, this guy has great character, seems like a pro's pro! Would be a fantastic locker room presence and leader. Fitt and Rhule should take a serious look at this guy!

Competition is always good. For cheap and short terms deal, not sure anyone would have an issue with that.

That said I could live without it.

I truly believe the oline is the only thing holding the team back given Darnold plays at least a notch above Teddy. And if the oline doesn’t get better history shows playoffs are a no go no matter what the rest of the team does.
