......and one more thing boys.

Just saw that Jerry Angelo Jr. just signed Trevor Davis and Tedd Ginn Jr. Davis ran a 4.42 forty and Ginn Jr. ran a 4.28. Both are considered "return specialists," but both play WR. Mooney runs a 4.38, a whopping .04 faster than Davis and a full .1 slower than Ginn Jr.

What's my point? Again, fast guys are always available....but without someone blocking for them, who cares.

Makur, a couple of things, and I'm done with this.

First, if you think the Chiefs are the same team without Tyreek Hill as they are with him (as you implied), you're not dealing in reality.

Second, I asked this before, but you didn't answer. Aside from the Williams trade, what specifically would you have done this offseason (in the draft or otherwise) to address the OL? Who would you have taken in the fifth or sixth rounds to fix our OL if we didn't take Mooney? The second? Let us all know so that we can see how brilliant your scheme to fix the Bears is. Don't be a poser. Do you think the Mack deal was a good one? I mean we gave up two first rounders that could have been used on offensive linemen. What SPECIFICALLY would you have done?

The place to complain about lack of OL is definitely not in the Mooney thread

Position doesn't really matter once you get to late Round 5

Pick good football players - Most of the guys at the point will never see a 2nd contract

Definitely has impressed his first two weeks. And finally a Bears WR getting separation! That was supposed to be one of the strengths of this scheme I thought and we haven't really seen it actually happen. Looking like this kid was a steal.

I think Mooney has been a big surprise. I didnt think much of the pick. He kind of has a Johnny Knox vibe. Smaller, runs hard, and does the little things. But he isn't the Steve Smith small guy who can play like a big guy, or the Antonio's brown small guy who is a human joy stick. (I know both them could do it all just using examples.)

Watching the Seahawks last night, I see a lot of similarities between Mooney and Tyler Lockett.
