    2. Bears trade for Brandon Marshall.

    Last year, the Bears sent two first-round picks (and more) to the Broncos for quarterback Jay Cutler. To date, the move has been a failure -- and it has left coach Lovie Smith and GM Jerry Angelo on wafer-thin ice.

    The situation has created sufficient desperation to prompt the Bears to overpay for a trio for day one free agents – Julius Peppers, Chester Taylor and Brandon Manumaleuna -- which in the short term has removed the sense of gloom and doom that had taken over Halas Hall.

    So with the Broncos looking to unload receiver Brandon Marshall, why don't the Bears try to get him? Sure, the Broncos want a first-round draft pick and the Bears already sent theirs to Denver in the Cutler deal. The Bears should instead dangle their 2011 first-rounder, and possibly throw in a conditional selection based on Marshall's performance in the coming season.

    If the Marshall plan fails, Angelo and Smith likely won't be there to not use the first-round pick in 2011 anyway. If it works, Angelo and Smith would gladly give up the pick for the ensuing job security.

    Though the Broncos may not want to enable a Cutler-Marshall reunion, they may not have many/any other options for unloading a guy they clearly don't want.

    This is a perfect example of a writer demonstrating himself to be a HACK! He offers terrible-- potentially disasterous-- advice, words of *alleged* wisdom that he'd be unlikely to follow if he was actually in the GM's chair.

    Even worse, this Cousin-of-Quacksaw concludes by saying, in essence, "If the whole thing blows up in the GM's face, he won't be there to have to deal with it anyway!"

    Brilliant strategy, there! :nana_dance:
