@AlbertBreer: In the end, the Bears paid Jared Allen $14.62 million for 18 games of work. Or $2.66 million per sack.


@JasonLaCanfora: In 18 games with the Bears, Allen registered 5.5 sacks for Bears. Team went 5-14 during time he was on the roster.


@adbrandt: Beyond cash ramifications, Allen will count $12.5 million on Bears Cap next year.  Probably a top 2 or 3 Cap charge on entire team.


@adbrandt: Again, Bears cash obligations to Allen may be over (assuming no deferred payments) but cant escape dead $ from $15.5M guaranteed at signing.


@AlbertBreer: Btw, only 15 non-rookies on the Bears roster were drafted by the team. That's a pretty stunning number. New regime knows it. Rebuild needed.

If Jimmy Clausen were to start this entire year, I think the Bears could threaten that 0-16 mark of the 2008 Lions.  As much as we bag on Cutler, he might be able to squeeze a win or 2 out of that sorry bunch, but I think Clausen is just about as bad as Brian Brohm was.  At least Brohm didn't seem like a punk, Clausen does seem like a punk.

Ryan Lindley?  Maybe?  

When a player is that bad, it becomes difficult to decide just who is the absolute worst. Spurgeon Wynn or Craig Krenzel? Mike McMahon or Jimmy Clausen? They're all too awful to play long enough to provide a really good sample size.
