I think you mean Bradley was coming on strong when he got hurt; Berrian was hurt early and came on strong late.
I am not as optimistic about the Bears WR's. I think a dependable veteran receiver would be a great addition (we all hoped Muhammed would be that guy), right now the Bears are dependent on young players, one of whom will be coming off a major knee injury. I don't like to be in the position of hoping players will get better which is where we are at. Gage has not been a reliable receiver so far. Berrian looked good at the end of the year, mainly on deep plays.
I also feel the Bears need a veteran backup QB. We are not far from the situation of last year, only now our backup is Orton instead of Hutchinson. Orton may be a good QB some day, but the bottom line is last year he was not very effective at moving the ball and scoring points.
My bad, it was Bradley I was thinking of. But with that group, it gives Rex a chance, so I am not too worried. I wouldn't mind Moulds, but he is getting up there in age and he isn't exactly the model of consistency either. There is Keyshawn (if he hasn't signed already), but again age is a factor. There are plenty of backup QB's left to choose from, and I think they will take the cheapest one out there, as there isn't much of a difference between Blake or Fiedler or whoever else is left. There is McCown or Collins, but those guys likely won't sit behind Rex (and knowing the Bears, behind Orton too!). Not much for them to do but wait.
