Let's run through some of the opinions he posted since joining

-Bring Adam Archuleta back to compete for a safety spot

-Trade Betts to Detroit. Pick up Shaun Alexander or Kevin Jones

-Goof Ball Gibbs ruined this team (along with Spurrier) trading for useless players such as...Adam Archuleta

-Give LaVar a camp invite

-Why not LeMar Marshall too

-While we're at it, sign Trotter to a vet min deal or give him a 2 year deal

Fascinating
Atleast his differing opinion that provides something for us to talk about lol.

Archuleta sucks. He's gonna be a special teamer for the rest of his short career.

Re: Bears cut Adam Archuleta

That 6th round pick from the Bears was like stealing. And I say that knowing that we only got Jordan Palmer out of the deal.

BEARS CUT ADAM ARCHULETA

Posted by Michael David Smith on May 6, 2008, 6:26 p.m.
The Chicago Bears announced today that they have released safety Adam Archuleta after one year with the team.
Last March the Bears traded their 2007 sixth-round draft pick to the Redskins in exchange for Archuleta, who had just finished a disappointing season in Washington. He played in 15 games for the Bears, starting 10. (The Redskins used the pick to draft quarterback Jordan Palmer.)
Archuleta had his best seasons with the Rams from 2001 to 2005, with Lovie Smith, now the Bears’ head coach, as his defensive coordinator. When Archuleta signed with Chicago, it looked like reuniting with Smith would make it the right fit.
But the Bears apparently felt that Archuleta was expendable because they like the other safeties on the roster, including Mike Brown, Brandon McGowan, Danieal Manning, Kevin Payne and rookie fourth-round draft choice Craig Steltz.
The 30-year-old Archuleta will now be an unrestricted free agent.
Dude can't play in the NFL anymore. Time to hang it up.

Re: Bears cut Adam Archuleta

I can see him in Arena Football. Dude can hit, but he cant run. If he was about 100lbs heavier he would be a decent linebacker. Maybe with a shorter feild we wont have to run as fast or he can play Jack LB. Those guys play horizontally instead of vertically. He could be good at that.

Re: Bears cut Adam Archuleta

Didn't the also pick up his 6mil. contract and saved us from taking the hit on our cap? For once we got the better of the deal in a trade.

LOL, that just made my day. To bad we couldn't get a 6 round pick and have them take the cap hit too.

Re: Bears cut Adam Archuleta

Good guy, but time to hang it up. And, I don't remember who said it, but we do not need to bring him back here. I think our special teams is just fine without him. We don't need to spend a bunch of money on a guy to play special teams again. Good luck finding a new team, Archuleta.

Fascinating? That's a generous adjective for his posts.

I wonder if he'll suggest Jesse Armstead next. Bring back the 2001 linebacking corps... LOL!

Re: Bears cut Adam Archuleta

Archuleta is not a starting caliber safety, but he's still a serviceable backup. I would guess that Chicago cut Arch for two reasons (1) he isn't a starter and (2) he was being paid like a starter. My guess is he lands somewhere as a #2 SS at the vet. min.

Re: Bears cut Adam Archuleta

Arch is one of my top suspects as a player who was on the juice until he got his big contract and then figured why chance it and stopped sprinkling HGH in his scrambled eggs. Just a hunch, but can anyone else explain why he went from very fast when he was drafted all the way to the opposite end of the spectrum of being too slow to be a full time starter?
