The Chicago Bears picked up two of the St. Louis Rams most prominent castoffs this season. Rams fans shouldn't expect to see their former players on the field this week though.
LB Pisa Tinoisamoa has been placed on IR, having already missed most of the season with a knee injury suffered against the Falcons in early October. Future Hall of Fame LT Orlando Pace has a strained groin that could very likely keep him on the bench this week. Not that he's been much of a force for the Bears this season anyway.
Yeah, I know, hindsight is always 20/20, but I still stand by the decision to part ways with Orlando Pace. Given his age, the position he plays and his recent injury history there was just no way to count on him starting enough games or being effective enough for the Rams. Rebuilding the offensive line, which is bruised and battered again, was a necessary move.
