Re: Chicago Bears offseason

So Ginn, Wims, and Ridley likely competing for 2 spots, though you could keep 7 WR if the young guys force the issue, or if they're just fully treating Patterson as RB/returner. I wondered if this is part of the strategy at RB, not that I really want it to be. Here's a question: Having declined the...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Ifedi's deal is confirmed to be the veteran salary benefit, so it won't count in the comp formula. Right now OTCs pick cancellation chart projects 3 6ths and 1 7th for the Bears next year. KPLs deal. Could be borderline 6th though. https://overthecap.com/compensatory-draft-picks-cancellation-chart/...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

I'm kind of expecting him to not count against the comp formula. They really don't have much cap space to be offering deals above the comp line. Hope you're right. The Over the Cap guy on Twitter predicted he would cancel out a pick, we'll see... Ifedi's deal is confirmed to be the veteran salary b...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Just wait for 2021. They could end up with as many as 4 comp picks, all in the 6th round! That would be like 4 late round picks in a 12-15 pick spread. I think Ifedi is going to wipe out their highest 6th round comp pick, so likely two 6ths and one 7th Still nice to accumulate some picks I'm kind o...

PFF’s biggest draft busts since 2014. Ryan Pace has made 4 first round picks as GM. Guess how many are on this list of 10?

Rapaport is reporting Germain Ifedi to the Bears, but Biggs hasn't reported the same thing. Is that really happening?

That play doesn't stand alone. it happened over and over again. He doesn't see the entire field. He can't anticipate an open receiver. He can't see an open receiver. He can't hit an open receiver. It's why defenses challenge him to throw deep and stuff the line. I'm going to guess that he makes a l...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Lots of Dalton, Foles, Newton talk, but I'm not really crazy about trading assets for those guys. Definitely not at their salaries, any of those guys need to be restructured. And the FA market dried up pretty quick. Really want nothing to do with Jameis Winston, who is the best FA QB left. This is ...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

So by cutting Floyd and signing Quinn, I would assume they saved the necessary extra money to get the QB they want once they extend ARob? Crafty move, I suppose. The Graham signing seems a bit desperation move to me still though. Quinn is gauranteed 30MM, so it's probably over three years, maybe a ...

No, not at all. Complete opposite actually. They let people play. That delay of game non penalty is how that is (not)called all the time. It drives me nuts every time I see it, but so be it. Hitting 0 on the play clock does not make it delay of game. Its delay of game when it hits zero on the play ...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

I haven't found a decent future draft pick website. But as far as I can tell the Bears have 2 2nd rounders in 2020, no 1st, 3rd or 4th, and then anywhere from 1 - 3 5ths. 1 - 2 6ths, and 1 7th. And then 2021 is intact besides this conditional 7th. https://www.prosportstransactions.com/football/Draf...

This is a really important game for Mitch. I've been pretty unconcerned about his dud games this year. And honestly, the games he's looked the worst (IMO) the Bears have either won or lost because they blew a 23-3 lead in the 4th quarter. But at this point in the season, they probably aren't winnin...
