Re: Week 11: John Fox*s Bears vs Detroit Sunday noon on Fox

The thing about Trubisky that I liked coming out of college was his accuracy and that has not been there so far. I want to see him with a new coach and with weapons but I'd be lying if I wasn't concerned with him. The scramble was awesome though. I think a reason for that is him learning how to tak...

Re: Week 11: John Fox*s Bears vs Detroit Sunday noon on Fox

My worry about mitch is if we dont get him some help on the field and on the coaching staff, we will end up with more of a Mark Sanchez then an Aaron Rodgers Don't have to worry about that after 6 more weeks. I don't think this year means anything other than getting him some experience in actual ga...

Re: Week 11: John Fox*s Bears vs Detroit Sunday noon on Fox

Mitch has some things to clean up with his base and footwork and we will see a big drop in those air balls. I really believe in the arm. Yeah, he definitely feels pressure that isn't there at times. Only was sacked once (only time they were really close) and it was his fault for that weird early sc...

Re: Week 11: John Fox*s Bears vs Detroit Sunday noon on Fox

It's really somewhat amazing how good this team is at losing. Blowout losses. Close losses. Comeback losses. Predicable losses. Unexpected losses. It takes all kinds. To be fair, the Bears are only a dropped pass, blown coverage, miscommunication getting the defense lined up correctly, late INT, bl...

Re: Week 11: John Fox*s Bears vs Detroit Sunday noon on Fox

Mitch was fine. Pretty comfortably above average. Last drive, receivers just not getting open consistently. He did miss Wheaton on a couple plays, one on an easy pitch and catch that would have converted a 3rd and 9, the other on the last drive which I'll chalk up to their lack of timing together du...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

i thought we soured on morrow after the dodgers gave him the rented mule treatment I did. But, he wasn't throwing tons of pitches, if I remember. Plus, he's still gotta pass a physical, my guess is we'd leave no stone unturned on it. I'm figuring he's the best potential closer, on the market. Years...

Re: Week 11: John Fox*s Bears vs Detroit Sunday noon on Fox

Would have happened by now, if it was going to happen. Gameplan goes into place tomorrow. Would have to make a change by then. Bears have never fired a coach midseason. I would not be surprised if they were hoping for a mutual agreement to terminate with a partial buyout of the 2018 season. Maybe t...

What's so great abour LaFleur? Former D1 WR, who transferred to D2 to play QB in college. Has worked with QBs under the Shanahans since 2008. He was the primary mentor for RG3 and Kirk Cousins from their rookie year. Gets a lot of credit for RG3's success early in his career, Cousins' eventual deve...

Matt LaFleur please.


I've gotten to the point now where I would be disappointed a very slight bit if LaFleur is not the head coach with Kubiak as the OC.

i'd start talking new contract with him and his agent, see what the parameters are. Inman, Meredith look like two # 2's. Draft early in the 1-2 rounds a speedster route runner type and dump White. They aren't dumping White. His contract is guaranteed for 5M+. Might as well hang on to him and hope h...

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

Since Cobb has a decent chance of being brought in and Chatwood, Miley, Chacin all available as BOR fliers, I’d be interested in seeing Happ used to bring in late inning pen arms. If possible, JA Happ would be excellent as well, but Osuna is interesting from Toronto. Does Ian Happ for Roberto Osuna...

Re: Offseason Transactions

I believe $17.4 would make Davis the highest paid reliever in the Majors for the season. I believe Chapman is at $17.2 and Jansen’s contract is backloaded, making $10 this year before jumping up to $18 in 2019 and beyond. So it really depends on what offers he gets. If he’s getting offers like 3 ye...

Re: Week 10: Packers @ Bears (-3.5) Noon FOX

Bears are back. They are favorites against the Packers. If you believe the road team gets 3 points then Vegas is saying that the Bears, coming off a bye week are barely better than the Packers with their backup QB on a short week. Yay? Would be awesome to see an improvement from Mitch after the bye...

Re: Offseason Transactions

Would it be crazy for Wade Davis to accept his qualifying offer? 17.4Mil is a lot of money for a closer. He won't see that AAV in any year of his next deal. So, does he take the big pay day now and still be in-line for a long-term deal if he performs like 2016? He'll be 32 for 90% of the 2017 season...

Re: Chicago Bears vs the bye week

Aaron Leming made an interesting comparison on twitter between the 2016 Rams and 2017 Bears. Both teams have good defenses and putrid offenses led by high profile rookie QBs. Finally both teams have veteran head coaches who don't seem to be getting results. Comparison has been made before. Rams GM ...
