Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

I didn't get to watch this past Bears game live, so I had to watch the repeat later on NFL Game Pass. I have to say that Mark Schlereth and Dick Stockton are now my favorite broadcasting team. Schlereth was amazingly knowledged on everything both offenses were doing wrong in that game, and he did a...

Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

Cohen had two dropped passes by himself.... I don't recall two missed passes. There was one that should have been a touchdown that was badly underthrown and while it did hit Cohen's hands, the defender got his hands in there to knock it out. I don't count that one as "dropped". this seaso...

Re: Week 3: Bears at Washington - MNF on ESPN (7:15pm)

The Bears have played two of the most boring games in history to start the season, and are somehow 4 point favorites on the road in primetime. Nobody likes Mitch but there's nobody else for the job right now. Yippee! Kaep's agent apparently reached out to 3 teams. That would instantly make this tea...

Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

He used to make 4 good throws for every one weirdly inaccurate one. Now he's making one good throw per game. That 4:1 ratio seems like a reasonable assessment of last season. The 1 good throw a game might be hyperbole. Just based on rewatching game 1, I'm not sure there were 10 good throws to even ...

Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

Can’t just throw a season away with this D in place. The clock is ticking. If Mitch has nothing to offer they’ve got to see if they can get close to mediocre at QB. I’m not there yet but I could see benching him if another two games go by with no improvement. There is nobody they can bring in from ...

Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

Tyler Bray was hitting UDFA receivers in stride time and again in the preseason. I know he was going against 3rd string defenses, but he was also being protected by 3rd string offensive line. There are only 16 games in a season. If Trubisky can't offer up something better than what we've seen so far...

Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

Oakland outplayed Denver from the opening tick of the clock to the end. I don't know if that's Oakland being good or Denver being bad. Carr didn't seem bothered by the pressure, or the lack thereof. Carr targeted his TE more often than any other receiver, which is not a strength on this Bears offens...

Re: Week 1/NFL Kickoff - Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Thursday 9/5 at 7:20 on NBC

Counterpoint to all the playcalling complaints: Running the ball is dumb and pointless and you should only do it to run out the clock when you're winning. Passing is awesome and wins games, if you're good at it. And if you're not, you deserve to lose anyway so who cares. It wasn't about just runnin...

Re: Week 1/NFL Kickoff - Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears - Thursday 9/5 at 7:20 on NBC

There were plenty of stupid play calls last night, and many have already been mentioned in this thread. The one that put me on tilt was the 3rd and half a yard fairly early in the game and they lined up in shotgun formation. That turned into a really slow developing play on 3rd and half a freaking y...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

There is only one potential fantasy stud on this offense and it's Trubisky. Only part I disagree with here. I think Montgomery is going to wreak havoc employed in this scheme and end up as ROY. I hope you are right, but I can totally see Nagy using Montgomery, Davis, Cohen and Patterson in the back...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

I'm pretty amazed at how little value Trubisky is given. To me, and I get that I'm as homer as they come, he has all of the tools necessary to be successful this year. ARob was coming off a year with a bad injury. Anthony Miller played with one arm all year. Trey Burton was practically non existent....

Chad Kelly has to sit out the first two games of the season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. It will be interesting to see what they do about that.

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Great overall grades for the Bears draft from many experts. I don't know that they could have gotten better value given the draft choices. A few of the UDFA pickups could have doubled as mid/late round draft picks and gives the Bears a lot of skill position options/battles to make the team. This off...

Also, Tyrion is not smart.
