What do Bears linebackers love? Surgery!!! Pisa Tinoisamoa is out for the year and will reportedly undergo microfracture surgery on his right knee.

Tough blow, da Bears LB core is looking really slim.
Pisa came with decent expectations, but after seeing the few minutes he did play this year, I think even those expectations were too low. The guy was really fast and playing alongside Briggs and Urlacher, he made plays all over the field. He was equally as impressive as either of those two Pro Bowlers.
The Bears LB corps coming in was very deep and that will obviously now have to show up, but to go from Briggs/Urlacher/Pisa (arguably 3 Pro-Bowl caliber LBs) to Briggs/Roach/Williams or Briggs/Hillenmeyer/Roach is quite a steep drop off. It's a shame.
Any chance Pisa rushed back from his torn PCL and that contributed to this injury?
What do people think of hillenmeyer, I thought he was pretty good but i havent watched enough of him to know?
He is pretty good but he has a rib injury.

You're a real comedian Bill.
Seriously, once FO implement an 'ignore' function, you're first on the list, Theo...
I don't like it when people make fun of another man's injury.
Why have Kenny Vaccaro and the Saints' secondary been such a headache for New Orleans this year?
