The Bears also could have picked Zach Martin or CJ Mosely over Fuller. Houston having the worst record didn't do them much good in that same draft. The could have had anyone they wanted and picked Clowney. Browns passed on Evans, Beckham, Donald, Barr, and Lewan for Justin Gilbert. It's not where you pick, it's who you pick. The answer to why a team doesn't come away with a better player isn't "they should have lost more", it's "they should have picked better".

Week 17: Lions (6-9) @ Bears (6-9) Noon, FOX

Postby Soul » Fri Jan 01, 2016 2:47 pm

Bears: 1-6 @ home (1-9 in their last 10)
Lions: 5-2 in the 2nd half.

Bears won't win Sunday so we will be "taking care of business" so to speak.

I don't know what the [expletive] it is about Soldier Field, but we can't play there.

It's a garbage field monstrosity that should be destroyed.

Even better. I'm starting Jay Cutler in my fantasy league for the championship so watch him have a career game. Lol

Yea, we'll for any pro tankers, Pace certainly isn't trying too hard for the W here. That said, meaningless games with lots of unknown players trying to prove themselves... funny things can happen.

Hah.

You're either pro tank or anti tank, man.

This is the worst DL and WR group on paper that I've ever seen. Top 4 guys in each group all out.

pretty cool of Jim Caldwell to wait until mathematical elimination to start incorporating any type of offensive creativity in the playcalling and aggressive decision-making on 4th down...gutless choking dog

Yeah just can't agree with Raw on that one. Winning this game means virtually nothing in the long run and certainly not more valuable than a higher draft pick, even if such a thing is slightly overblown. Also not sure I believe a morale boost from winning this game really carries over into an entirely new season.

What's the highest possible position the Bears could pick at?

That's what I thought, but of course an INT somehow came out of that.

Great throw by Jay. Bellamy failed. DB was a little early. Doesn't matter.

Probably not the best song choice to play "Wasted Years" on the PA today.

Bears got completely screwed there. There is no way there should have been a second left.
