If so, say goodbye to Rex & Kyle !

Believe me - I've said goodbye to the both of them years ago. :-P

Chansi Stuckey is a decent deep sleeper. He is a much better deep threat than Coles or Cotch, who basically are mirror images of each other. Stuckey is much closer to the Greg Jennings role than either of the two starters, and is their best shot at stretching the field. At this point Favre is a unbiased chucker. He's not afraid to throw it, and he'll throw it to you no matter who you are. There's a good 700 yards and 5 or 6 TDs for the taking in that offense with Favre there.

Stuckey is no more of a deep threat than either one. He ran poor 40 times and he's the same build as Coles and Cotchery. I'm not sure your reasoning for him being a much better deep threat.

Well, you are right about his timed speed. I guess I am going off the Jets/Eagles preseason game from last year where he had a huge punt return and a few nice kickoff returns. I read a few articles about him while mining for players this summer and it reinforced that he could be a better deep threat than Coles/Cotch, but it could all be bunk. He could just be an over the middle, prototypical slot receiver, but that's still value if he plays up to his camp performance. Clowney may be the real speedster on the team, but I don't see him getting the chance Stuckey has earned with his solid play both last preseason and camp so far this year.

Yeah, if Chicago's DEF is back to the same level it was 2 years ago and Forte/KJ post up a good running game again then Pennington would be a good fit. Fricken Orton looked like a stud that year he got lots of starting time simply because the DEF held down the fort and the T Jones was running well. That year, if the Bears put up 10 - 14 pts by halftime and the DEF held the other team from scoring, they won. Pennington is definately more composed then Rex or Orton, and his short yardage game might not be so bad if the running game is there. Hell, ANYONE has to be better then Rex and Orton for Chicago!!!!
