Day 3 of Briggs saga, JLC and Co. think the odd's are better than 50-50?

With the third day of this Briggs soap opera. JLC and co. think the odds are a little better than 50-50 that he's ending up in DC.

I think the odds are greater, maybe 75-25 we end up with this guy?

i'd hope we don't. LBs are one of the easiest things to find.

Now now, he did say better than 50/50.

Don't you think that if there truly were nothing to this, that the story would have died?

This has gone from a rumor no one could believe to a probability. This should be the final nail in the organization of the front office in the aspect of how talent is selected and draft picks are utilized, the only problem is that the Skins will pay for this front office organization for years to come.

Here is another article on the Briggs deal stating that the Bears want more out of us

Bears want more in trade for Briggs :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Bears

This is true matty, it's at least 51-49

I have a feeling this story isn't ending until they land BRIGGS in DC.

I don't like this trade. Not one damn bit.

The only way I could be a little less infuriated with bringing in Briggs, is if the plan is to go to a 3-4, in which case we'd STILL need another defensive lineman. Or if Marcus Washington truly is hurt, and has an injury that could threaten his career. That's all speculation of course, and the Skins aren't saying anything to that effect one way or the other, as they shouldn't.

I still maintain though, that adding whichever linebacker you like -- Dick Butkus in his prime, LT in his prime, Wilbur Marshall, whoever -- none of those guys would matter to the overall performance of the defense when they are making tackles well past the line of scrimmage as the front four is getting eaten alive.

Then there's the aspect of losing whatever bargaining value we had for trading down for more picks ...

Ugh. I just don't like it. If the Bears or any other team were offering a defensive lineman on the level of Briggs, and we could get the 31st pick -- I'd jump all over it.

Hopefully this will be enough to scuttle the deal.

I must say, whether or not this happens I was of the opinion that this was complete BS and It appears I was completely wrong.

Gibbs and the FO must not think our current crop of LB's is worth much. I can see trying to sign a couple veteran offensive linemen, we need depth at the very least, but LB was a solid position for us I thought. IF this story is true that the Bears want more out of us for Briggs, then I say we nix the deal. We can get a decent young LB with a upper middle pic like a 3rd rounder if we wanted to. All I hope is that these guys have some sort of plan layed out with the moves they are making and not doing things on the run like they seem to have been doing for a long time.
