Bears O-Line Set?

It is being reported the Bears are pursuing former Seattle Seahawk Guard Rob Sims. If the Bears do end up getting him, they will only have to give up a 4th round pick for him. I know the Bears are short on Draft picks, but giving up a 4th round pick for an opening day starter is worth it for me. If the Bears complete this move their opening day O-Line would basically be set.

Chris Williams will be the starting Left Tackle which he excelled at after switching from Right Tackle to replace an injured/ineffective Orlando Pace.

Frank Omiyale will move from Guard to his natural postion of Right Tackle. I know a lot of people are down on Omiyale for his play last year, but I will give him the benefit of a doubt that he is a better Tackle then he is a guard.

The two guard spots will be filled by Rob Sims and Roberto Garza who is getting older, but is still a solid player. Olin Kreutz will play Center on what could be one of his last years. I think the Bears should draft a Center in the later rounds, let him develop this year and next and groom him to replace Kreutz.


  1. I still cannot understand why Omiyale is supposedly a better right tackle than Kevin Shaffer. I just don't get it.

    Also, there was talk that we might trade Alex Brown for Sims. Again, why are we getting rid of Brown?

    It's amazing that for every good move the Beras front office makes (Peppers, Manumaleuna...) they make a lousy move to balance it out.

  2. I highly doubt we trade brown, but I too would be more than happy giving away another pick for somebody who guaranteed can start week 1. Now that my bracket is dead I'm really excited for this season.
