Naj was the best sidecar blocker last season
I'm not exactly on board with that. I thought he was pretty pathetic at times last year, and he got run over a couple of times in the playoff game. However, if you're saying that comparatively, then you may be right. I never took much note of Davis' blocking on third down.
the team has been vocal about how much they like Russell.
Trade bait? Not that we've made a meaningful one in years, but at some point the Bears are going to have to find more RBs. Chances are they pick up Najeh soon.
The OL soup is looking like a real adventure--throw something else into the pot and see how it comes out. My only hope is that it only looks very disorganized and unknown, and the team has some clue of what combination might work. My fear (and I think the reality) is that we don't have any idea how our oline is really shaping up. We might be 4-4 or worse, with Ben's brain turning to mush and FWP/Mendenhall on IR before we get it all sorted out. I really, really hope I'm wrong.
