    You're right, he did. But in another interview he indicated he was sick of the losing situation in Cleveland & might have another go 'round. But let's say he's done, who would you look to next?...Justin Fargas? Chris Brown?...or do you wait for a salary cap casualty? There's a myriad of ways it could go, I just wanted to see what everyone's thoughts were.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    Im probably most worried about safety where, if either starter went down, our only depth is the unproven starter Will Allen and the proven unstarter in Ryan Mundy. But hey, maybe Tomlin likes what he sees in Mundy, I dont know...

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    i love justin fargas!! the guy is so underrated. i would take him over chris brown or jamal lewis any day. also i dont think the bears are going to part with greg olson any time soon. he also has a huge contract. if heath gets hurt this season and misses time we will be in some serious trouble.

    I agree that an injury at either safety spot, especially to Troy, would be the biggest blow to the team.

    In addition to those listed in the original post, I'd also be very worried about an injury to Starks. Scott (from Buffalo, not the draft pick), has played some LT in the past, as has Essex, but I'd be very worried about either of them having to log any significant time at the position.

    I just think it is awesome that his Dad was Huggy Bear from Starsky and Hutch.
