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

I don't have a problem with the Meredith decision if the team doesn't like him or if they think his knee is going to be problematic this year. I do have a problem with depleting depth on a roster that is thin on talent overall. Sitton - I realize he's not a Guard of the future but he would have been...

Re: Cardinals Close to Signing Greg Holland

I strongly suspect Holland is going to fall off a cliff sooner than later, so seeing him get 14 million from the Cardinals is pretty exciting. He's probably fine, but the idea that they just took themselves out of midyear upgrade season to spend $14 million on a injury prone closer is pretty good A...

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

Barkley is a really interesting wrinkle, as the Browns and Giants are both rumored to be picking him #1/2. Browns could go Barkley and gamble their guy is there or trade up to 2/3 to get whomever they like (this was the rumor last year in which Pace gamed them to trade up to 49ers for Trubisky). Or...

Re: Bears game 6: Joey Elite vs. Elite Rushing game 10/15 at Noon on Fox

PFF on Trubisky's second game After a rocky debut, Trubisky executed the Bears’ conservative game plan extremely well, ultimately leading to an overtime victory. They kept it simple for him with a number of bootlegs and screens, and while his 8-for-16 passing line isn’t impressive, six of the eight...

Most replays of passing plays show very little separation from anyone.

Re: Bears/NFL training camp opens

one dimensional running game? they have two distinct type of backs that can share the ball. Whitehair at guard is better than Long at guard and moving Grasu to center isn't different than playing Kush or Larson at guard. i'm not worried.

Re: Bears/NFL training camp opens

Long may not even start the season. If Grasu starts at center and Whitehair shifts to G that seems much worse than last year when Kush/Larson stepped in. Again, it may just be my constant sense of impending doom, but the line just feels thin. Another reason for my concern is the defense stacking up...
