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

Interesting feedback on Fuller...Guess I’ll have to hope the Jets can steal Gaines because no thanks on big money defense this year. Great to hear that he got it back together after a down year maybe two. The other Bears player I’m curious about - how is Leonard Floyd coming along? Raw - big Marcus...

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

Catching up on the last page of this thread. Kyle Fuller MUST come back. I'd prefer a re-sign because the franchise tag is like 14 million, but bottom line is Fuller has to be back. He was a top 20 CB this year, I think some of the PDs will turn into turnovers. And he's the 2nd youngest free agent C...

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

So the head coach has 8 years NFL coaching experience, the OC has none, the OL has 5, all with Bears, several years removed. Each guy has some legit qualities to be excited about, but I'm concerned about the ability to run an NFL team here. McVay was younger but had more NFL coordinating experience...

Re: 2017-18 NFL Playoffs

What a win. Saints and Falcons win next week and the NFC title games goes through the Dome. Playoff experienced Falcons vs. Nick Foles. Drew Brees vs. Case Keenum. Vikings beat the Saints in Week 1, but that was with Sam Bradford and Dalvin Cook. This is what I've been expecting to happen since the...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Fox Fired

Many feel it's Flip's job to lose. I'm honestly torn. DeFilippo is the guy the that people think could be the next Sean Payton. An innovative, star head coach. But Nagy is said to be the best coaching prospect from the extremely successful Andy Reid tree, by Andy himself. I think DeFilippo is the gu...

It's not conveniently leaving anyone out. The conversation wasn't about failed coaches, it was about successful coaches and I didn't start the conversation.

Re: Week 17: Bears @ Vikings

Looks like results of other games put the Bears at a higher SOS than Tampa. So them winning did nothing.

Bears will have the 8th pick in the 1st round, but will pick 5th in the 2nd because of the tiebreaker rotation.

Re: Week 17: Bears @ Vikings

49ers are going to win, Bears will be in the 8th spot in the draft. Moves up to 7th in Denver wins vs. KC's 2nd string. Could move to 6th if Tampa wins, as they project to have a 0.001 higher SOS. I'd love to pick 1 spot ahead of Denver. Be a prime spot to trade down with a team that wants a QB and ...

Good for Wade, good job getting paid and thanks for 2017 and the draft pick.

Reed?) they might more aggressively explore with the extra payroll capacity. In some c...

I just want Mitch to finish with:

More TDs than INTs - currently 7 of each
A QB rating higher than Wentz's rookie year- 79.3 for Wentz, Trubisky at 78.5

Re: NFL week 15

So based on the current NFL catch rule. If a player makes a diving catch on 40 and does the worm all the way to the end zone, and drops the ball after crossing the goalline but before standing up or handing it to an official, that would be an incomplete pass.

The hell is with this IU team. Hang with then #1 Duke, Louisville on the road, @ Seton Hall. Beat #15 ND just 2 days ago. But just lost their 2nd home game by more than 20 points against an in-state team that's not Purdue or Butler.

Re: John Fox Death March Week 16: Winless Browns @ Bears - Noon - CBS

This should be a fun way to spend Christmas eve! The Browns actually are a pretty good run defense. But they allow teams to do whatever they want passing the ball. Not exactly the Bears strength, but Mitch will have his chances. Josh Gordon could be a tough matchup for the Bears, but Kizer is an abs...

Re: FREE DA JERSEY - Week 15 Bears @ Lions, Saturday Afternoon for some reason 3:30 PM CT, NFL-N

The only issue I see is that's not enough Thursdays for every team to have a Thursday game. Thus, some teams would get a full 2 weeks off, while others get 10 days on either side of a Thursday night game. Not sure who would be losing out here. I don't get it. Who is getting 2 full weeks off? 17 wee...

I am 100% on board with late season NFL games on Saturdays. They should only play on Thursdays on opening week, and after both teams are coming off a bye. Go something like Week 1: Thursday opener with marquee teams Week 2-5: No Thursday games Week 5-12: Thursday night matchups featuring teams comi...

Trubisky has some accuracy problems but calling him a bust is extreme Honestly I don’t even know what I’m looking at. It’s the most basic play calling I’ve seen since Shoop and receivers can’t get open save a few plays. Most of those are quick routes where there’s no read planned. He didn't even ha...
