Re: Bears offseason

San Fran has a big smile on their face today. I hope Trubisky is the guy. Shouldn't take him long to jump ahead of Bob Avellini and Bobby Joe Douglas among the Bears career passing leaders. LOL.

193 pitches and they could only muster 5 runs. Bummer.

That Mercer cat is HORRIBLE in the field. My goodness. My favorite play tonight is when he didn't even try to cover 2nd base on a grounder to 2nd in the first or second inning.

ATTN: Expert Analysis Post There was no radar gun in "Historic Grangier Stadium". Hopefully it's less historic and more today's day and age soon. Hatch seemed to be pretty good/ok. Basically he seemed to be a "guy" - though he touched on being a gamer at times. He threw pitches....

Re: I like Gold Gloves and I cannot lie: the Jason Heyward thread

As much as I'm enjoying this season so far, nothing makes me happier than to see Heyward getting such positive results at the plate.

Re: Bears offseason

The Bears had the most money available to spend this offseason, correct?

Overpaying for a QB while missing out on all of the big name FA's that fit your needs is not a very good game plan.

Re: Bears offseason

I am looking forward to following Cutler on the Jets next year. Honestly if Romo goes to Denver, I think Jay winds up in Houston or Miami. Based on things I've read, he'll probably retire before going to NYJ or Cleveland. The market has worked out pretty well for him. Taylor is staying in Buffalo, ...

Gooney get out of your NY bubble and realize it's not just the fans that hate Cutler it's the people in the building too. It might be irrational but the Cutler ship has sailed. Maybe the problem is the people in the building. Haha. The pitch was lobbed and Gooney cracked it over the left field fenc...

Re: Bears offseason

I've talked myself into being OK with the Glennon thing. Highest PFF rated FA QB (other than Cousins), and I know that's damning with faint praise, but he's a competent player there. I liked him a couple years ago when he was starting for the Bucs, and then they had Winston fall in their laps. In 2...

Re: Bears offseason

I've been a Cutler apologist as long as you have, but he's now about as popular as ketchup on a hot dog on the Fourth of July in Chicago. I could not care less about this theory. If Pace gets the opportunity to move forward after his disappointing early results, he should do so only with the eye to...

Re: Bears offseason

Theo Epstein is the greatest thing to ever happen to Ryan Pace. If he can convince management that in year 3 John Fox as HC and Mike Glennon at QB is good enough for him to have a job..., boy howdy. Where is your solution? John Fox would be long gone. At the very least he doesn't get to work with C...
