Re: Week 15: Green Bay @ Bears Sunday at noon on Fox

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...

Re: NFL Week 14

Vikings haven’t won against a winning team all year. 2 of their last 3 games are against winning teams. The other is in Detroit, which always makes for a tough road trip (DET has 4 home losses but 3 were against playoff-bound teams). Dare I say the Vikings might lose out? How soon can they get out ...

Re: Week 9: Bears at Bills Sunday noon? On fox

3 times this week I've come across a national writer referring to Mitch as the Blake Bortles of the North, which I get on some level but I really think its premature to turn him into a national joke like Bortles is at times. Both #2 overall picks that put up good stats early in their career, neithe...

Re: Week 3: Bears at Cardinals 3:25 Sunday, on Fox

Mitch was supposedly praised for his accuracy coming out of college. His accuracy has been absolutely terrible so far this year. I wonder if there is a bit of a correction there as he gets more comfortable and stops playing scared. Of course this doesnt fix the terrible reads he's been making but w...

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...

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...
