Re: Week 6: Saints at Bears Sunday at 3:25 (2weeks2stew)

Saw an article where Michael Lombardi suggests trading for Nick Foles, who is coming back soon from a broken collar bone. It's a cap space nightmare. But Foles is familiar with the Andy Reid offense, having played for KC and Phily. ETA: The absolute earliest Foles would be able to play is week 11. T...

Re: Moving

After living in something like 24 different addresses before age 30, I've happily lived at the same address for over 12 years. I would happily live here another 12 if it meant not moving again (though my wife and I have discussed downsizing immediately after our youngest is off to college in 5 or 6...

Re: Week 6: Saints at Bears Sunday at 3:25 (2weeks2stew)

Latest story on Yahoo sports says Cam Newton would make sense for the Bears. Not sure how the Bears could afford him with their current draft pick situation. But, I do like thinking outside the box. It may take that to find a replacement behind center. As a trade or in the offseason? They were refe...

Re: Week 6: Saints at Bears Sunday at 3:25 (2weeks2stew)

There is so much to say about yesterday's game, but I'll just say that I'm ready to be done with the Trubisky experiment. He's not an NFL QB. He looks scared in the pocket. He doesn't see the whole field. He's wildly inaccurate. And he's not going to be anything different next week.

Re: NFL Week 6

My favorite was the helmet to helmet call. It's my favorite, because I read somewhere that they would have still called him on that if he actually intercepted the ball. If you watch him on that play, he was entirely going for the ball. Hands forward to make the catch. There would be nothing differen...

Re: Week 6: Saints at Bears Sunday at 3:25 (2weeks2stew)

The offensive line is completely awful. Obviously the QB play isn't great, but it's the offensive line that's putting them down into the bottom of the league. Yep. It'd be hard to justify coming out or the bye with zero changes to that unit, but I'm sure that will be what happens.. At what point do...

Re: Week 5: Bears at Raiders in London (noon on Fox)

Any interest in Ben Watson for the Bears? He's 38, but still seemed to have it last year, and the Bears TE room needs help big time right now. I wouldn't hate taking a shot. I pretty much forgot the Bears had TEs. Bars should take the spot of one of the ridiculous number of TE's they are carrying. ...

Roquan out indefinitely. Hasn’t been acting like himself for weeks. Luckily Kwiatkowski is playing well in his place. Kwiatkoski deserved a game ball on Sunday. He looked like ass in preseason, so that was a pleasant surprise. I've always liked him. Thought he played well the last few years. It was...

Re: Week 5: Bears at Raiders in London (noon on Fox)

This game is a trap. This is basically the Giants game from last year, all over again. Raiders are bad, but are pretty decent running the ball (just like the Giants last year). They've gotten off to a fast start (double digit early lead) in 3 of their 4 games so far. Their defense stinks, and will ...

Re: Week 5: Bears at Raiders in London (noon on Fox)

Couldn't the Bears get Case Keenum on the cheap from Washington? Rumors are that they may start Colt McCoy this week, and that puts Haskins back in the role of learning the NFL game where he probably should be. I don't think I would hate that deal, depending on what it would cost. Do the Bears real...

He had one good season and was probably the worst 'feature' running back in the league last year (maybe Carlos Hyd...

Blasphemy, I know, but I kinda wanted the Packers to win last night. The Packers are obviously the biggest obstacle in the division, but I feel the Eagles are the most talented team in the NFC. If they had gone to 1-3, their season would have been on life support. They still have a 3-game road trip...

7.94 ay/a. That would rank 8th overall in 2018 team stats. Suffice to say, barely performing in the upper quartile against a D like Washington leaves a lot to be desired still. And while I normally hate "take out this one play" type analysis, take out that Gabriel TD at the end of the hal...

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

I got bored early and wandered off, but I probably should say how good it is to see Mitch has good stats after ragging him mercilessly when he had bad games. That stats are somewhat misleading honestly. Will be interesting to see what the average yard per pass is by the end of the game. Lots of eas...

This team definitely loves bringing guys back. Versteeg, Saad, Kruger, Shaw..... Versteeg has already been sent to Rockford where he'll tutor the younger guys. Kruger was part of the price of unloading Hossa's contract. Surprisingly, Shaw isn't the worst player ever. He might actually be a useful p...

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

Every incompletion by Mitch was to a wide open receiver. I know I can't expect him to be perfect, but none of those were actual drops. They were overthrows every time. I felt bad for Miller because 4 of those balls were his targets. One was in the backfield where Trubisky threw it over his head. Tha...
