New Chicago Bears LT Jermon Bushrod Profile (links, videos, & poll)
The Bears added Jermon Bushrod on Tuesday agreeing on a five year contract. Martellus Bennett was also signed on the first day of Free Agency which apparently gives the Bears playing room in the draft. Phil Emery told the Chicago Tribune “…. we’re open for business. If teams want to talk to us about trading back, we’re all ears.” Read the entire article here. The last couple of days the critics and fans are wondering if Bushrod is an upgrade or a sidestep from LT J’Marcus Webb. The whole Pro Football Focus article can be read at This Link. The whole mind-numbing article throws stats, learning curves, grades, and more questions coming up with the same conclusion that all of us already know: We’ll know a lot more come September – December. One thing to keep in mind while reading the PFF article- how many times did Bushrod get help from a tight end? I know Webb went through a four or five game stretch last season with Rodriguez, Spaeth, or Davis attached to his hip. Before I share a few videos and links, let me ask you one question: How does someone with similar stats to J. Webb get to two consecutive Pro Bowls? Players are voted into the Pro Bowl by the coaches, the players, and the fans. Each group’s ballots count for one third of the votes. Anyone?
Jermon Bushrod on the Bounty Scandal:
I get asked “How are you guys going to do this year” three, four, maybe ten times a day depending on where I am and I tell them the same thing. We can only go up. We take the situation for what it is, come together, fight a little harder, prepare a little more and at the end of the day, let’s try to do something unheard of. -Bushrod
