I'm not sure I'd say it paid off he had an awful year. Now is having a great year on a 4-7 team. What's their record without him? 3-8?I thought it was a terrible signing last year - it looked like Bears paid big money for a pre-injured guy who was too old to return to form. But he has returned to form, in hindsight it was a gamble from Pace but it paid off.
