    Bears got a shot in the playoffs with the best of their players on defense and the QB on a rookie contract. That formula failed.

    It's not our money so the price of his contract doesn't matter much. It was a great game and the Eagles made the play that sealed the deal and that play was a barely missed field goal tipped by a fingertip. It's a game of inches and that shows why. There is no reason to dog Mack or say he's not worth the contract based on that game. It was a good defensive game.

    We were not held hostage by Mack and we have a few chances to replace him with what his return was to us. Let's hope Mayock and Gruden draft well.

    Bears haven't made the playoffs in 8 years? I think they are happy with the trade. They got exactly what they wanted.

    Also, the first rd pick they gave up this year ended up being #24.

    Next yr, they give up a 1st but they get back our 2nd. The difference between their first and our 2nd this yr is 10 spots. It could be 10 spots next year.

    Well we'll see how happy they will be. IMO Mack was not the reason they went to the playoffs. He was almost non existent in the last few games. Copper on the other hand was a much bigger reason Dallas is where they are now.

    Yeah, not sure what that means. They haven't been to the playoffs in 8 years. They haven't been Superbowl contenders since - Kerry Collins? What is it that they're actually risking to be unhappy about? Why are we so worried about Chicago's happiness?

    I've never been worried about Chicago's happiness in my life. Why even care now. I think they're happy. They seem to be happy. I'm not waiting for the day they're going to be unhappy. We got what we wanted, they seem to have gotten what they wanted.

    This discussion isn't about what we got - this discussion is about whether the Bears are happy/not happy with what they gave up for Mack.

    Yeah, so basically, you can say the Bears gave up #24 this year, and next year, they move back maybe 10 spots (or so) from their 1st rd pick, and they gave up a 3rd and a 5th for Mack.

    Not as bad as saying they gave up 2 first rd picks.
