Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Freeman needs to retire and hopefully gets some help. He has said that he's dealing with memory loss after his last concussion. That alone should scare any team from letting him play again. On top of that, if he gets caught again, it's a 2 year ban which would essentially end his career (being 32 th...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

I see Glennon, Sims, Wheaton, Freeman, and 1 of McPhee/Young being cut pretty easily. That's anywhere from 31.16 (Young)- 33.735 (McPhee) mil cap savings with those 5. That would put Bears in the low 70s mil cap space for FA. The rest I can see staying based on needs/depth/performance/etc depending ...

They could still get in the top 6 with a little luck in the lottery. It would help if they tank their way into the top 5 so they have a better chance of staying there or even get in the top 3, but I'm not sure there's that BIG of a drop off in talent/potential from 6 to 8 or 10.

Re: Golf shop recommendations

So we're talking like 50+ on 9 or 100+ on 18 then? If that's the case, you should go with a super game improvement irons. Cobra MAX for example (2016 model... Cobra King Oversize are 2017) are a pretty good starter set. I would go with something that's a year or 2 old instead of buying this years mo...

Quintana is better and we have him about twice as long. Also, I'll regret trading Eloy if (and only if) he actually turns into something. Eloy is gonna be a stud and it’ll be regrettable if Q is a 4/5 and doesn’t stay healthy. How do the Cubs have Quintana for “twice as long”? What if Eloy is someh...
