    It's not even draft day yet, exciting off season so far.

    Bears acquiring Brandon Marshall from fins for 2 3rd's

    as Per NFLN and Jay Glazer for 2 3rd rounders, Cutler finally gets his #1 target in Chi town.

    Good pickup for the Bears. Gotta think they're pushing hard for Mario.

    And before anyone says the Pats could have gotten him for that much and they blew it, no they couldn't:

    1.) No way would the Dolphins give the Pats a WR who could be elite.
    2.) Marshall and McDaniels hate each other.

    Dammit you scooped me :p Mods please merge the my thread

    I think the Bears will still go after Mario hard as well, they could be in excellent position come draft time

    Addition by subtraction for us. No Marshall and now, I'm pretty sure, no Manning.

    Man, if the fish whiff on Maanning their fans go from dreams of Manning, Maeshall, And Wayne all together to Matt Moore and Bess, quite the dropoff.

    good move for chicago but them going after Mario is ludicrous. To think all these years we've been clamoring for an outside presence and the bears come in and sign two of the best to the biggest contracts for a defensive player in nfl history is lulzy.

    Devin McCourty is probably breathing a sigh of relief saying... one down one more to go. He's probably hoping V-Jack end up in the NFC too. Who knows with them gone he migt start looking like a CB agian.:p

    Why do people think by trading their best offensive weapon and a top 10 receiver that the Dolphins are all of the sudden the favorite to sign 18? Strange logic

    My first thought too... Marshall was the antithesis of Manning's preferred receiver type. Coming off Manning's meeting with Philbin, I bet Marshall was one of his hangups about Miami... now that's gone.

    I believe $7.1M against the cap. They save his $9.3M salary, but have to take on the remaining $2.2M of his signing bonus.

    Manning is not going to a team that stinks, that's for sure. Miami minus Marshall is a crap team. Look how far the Broncos went with no QB. Denver has an outstanding D and would give us a run for our money if they ended up with Manning and Wayne. Arizona is an good option as well.

    Every less elite WR that leaves the division is O.K. in my book

    The Denver D was extremely overrated last year based on who they played (aka, nobody). When they played a good offensive team like the Patriots, they got lit up twice.

    Miami minus Marshall in a vacuum is a crap team. Miami minus Marshall plus Manning, Wayne, and possibly Clark instantly improves that offense. Not to mention Bush is a perfect RB for Manning and that defense is better than any of his other suitors, and I don't see how anyone could be surprised if he chose them.

    Nope, Moore is still the starter there and Flynn may well end up in Cleveland, who aren't trying to get Manning and have the opportunity to get something done while the fish vacillate.

    I see it the other way. Now that Miami needs a WR it makes MORE sense for Manning to come to Miami and bring Wayne with him.

    When it was discussed that Wayne and Manning could end up in Miami it didn't make sense to be with Marshall already there as the #1. With him gone now it's a much better fit.
