During their Super Bowl run LAist sorta fell in love with Da New Bears. And seeing as it's going to be a long time till LA gets an NFL team we were kinda thinking about adopting the Monsters of the Midway, especially since so many of us on staff here are from the Windy.

And we are willing to hang in there with Sexy Rexy as he learns how to get it together in the NFL, but holy mother of fucked-up trades, WTF are the Bears doing trading away their best running back when they're still relying on their Defense and special teams to provide points on the board like total freaks?

Jets fans are thrilled about the trade that only had NY giving up their second round pick in the draft for Jones. Plus the Jets get Chicago's (lower in the draft) 2nd round pick:

Outstanding, Jets get talented RB for draft pick they fleeced Redskins out of last year and still get last pick in second round. Unless Jones becomes a COMPLETE bust, this is about as one sided of a deal as you could hope for. Jets still have much work to do, Pats have improved with the addition of Adalius Thomas and Wes Welker. I wish it were early September right now! - Matt E

Bears fans, not so much. A poll on the Chicago Tribune web site currently has 82% of the 7,000 voters choosing "Are you kidding me" to describe their feelings about the trade instead of "I like it".
